Try it on Tuesday Tag week

Its a tag week again over at Try it on Tuesday and this week the theme is to use a stamp you have had a long time but maybe never have used. There has got to be something in your stamp stash that is begging to be played with so drag it out, dust it off and get stamping. For my tag I chose to use some old Close to my heart clear stamps I have had forever. The set is called Blue Jeans. As you can see below they are nice and clean and even starting to yellow on the edges a bit.

I also used Close to My Heart Sunflower Garden clear stamps inked on white card and cut out to fill the pockets. Hope you like it.

Now wait till you see all the other great inspiration out DT has conjured up for you. We even have 2 guest designers this week so be sure to check it all out on the Try it on Tuesday challenge blog. then leave a link to your creation. I bet it will be wonderful.

The unpacking update........
On another not the unpacking is getting a bit better. We really tore into it this weekend. This is my craft room now. It still needs more work but at least it is usable. And not a minute too soon as Belle had to get to work on her school project this weekend.

Our desks still face each other but there seems to be less room. I think I liked the old longer room better. Here is Entrance of course yo can see that there are still boxes in the hall to work on. The closet is filled with material and sewing bits from my Mums old house. When she passed away I inherited it all but never went through the totes till now. When i unpacked them I found tons of materials and sewing notions. The table next to the closet will become the sewing table one we find room for everything else. My old green hutch is now being used to house my altered project materials. they seem to have multiplied. The stickles also sit on top.
And some of my stamps have found a new home on some shelves on the other side of the room. See those little boxes there on the right side of the middle shelf. They are great. I got them from Michelle and Janet at Lovin Ink. Each one hold a set or coordinating unmounted stamps. They are really great for storing them.
Hope you enjoyed the mini tour. It is not what it used to be but it will get there once I finish organising and setting it up I am just happy to be able to use it now.

Don't forget to check out the Try it on Tuesday challenge this week. Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela

Hi Angela
I hope you are well. Your room seems to be coming together and I am glad you are getting through the unpacking.
You know what school is like so as you can imagine my new work is taking up all of my time at the moment and I love it, but I am missing my crafting and blogging buddies.
I love this card with the sunflowers and jeans stamps.
Thanks for staying in touch and take care.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
