A Project To Share ...


I've spent the past few weeks, slowly but surely, doing a MAJOR clean-out/organization of my studio. No easy task. One of the projects I wanted to share with you is how I "re-vamped" the look of my stamp sets and ink pads.


Before.....

After....

Before....

After...

You get the idea....


I found some gorgeous Ephemra Frames at The Graphics Fairy....



...added my labels....


....printed them onto cardstock...



...and glued them to the lids/covers.





Easy peasy.

Ahhh...oui, oui...MUCH better!
The original labels can be found at The Graphics Fairy.


I print these labels onto 110lb cream cardstock.... 

2/page of the stamp set templates and 6/page of both the Stayz On & Distress Ink Pads.

The font I use is called “Snell Roundhand” in case you’d like to make some of your own. I am including a blank label for that purpose as well. Enjoy!!

  24. Oh my dear friend you are way to kind to visit and best taking the time to comment. I so enjoy snooping through your treasure box of goodies and truly I have been suffering in the areas of creating all the small wonderments, when I visit you encourage my passion to get out the ink, wire, paint, paper boxes, metal and wood and take some time off for all the big stuff and enjoy the small stuff that adds so much to who we are as creators. You rock that ink my friend!

    Thank you for encouraging my passion, see you and all you inspire soon
    lots of inspiration to you.
    xoxo

  38. You are always such an inspiration Michelle and even at the level of your stamps - precious tools of our trade! The printed labels just go with everything else and brings even more beauty to our work desk. I'd simply love to be able to print these on mine too - if you have the time - that would be so appreciated!

  48. Such a pretty blog and I am now following. Found you from a comment I saw on Facebook and here I am....so glad. Your studio looks divine and I like the use of the wire drainer I see. I consider my studio/workspace my personal paradise and just love it but am in the process of revamping too. I need to add an extra sleeping space for guest so now it will be a sleeping/studio. LOL. I have big plans in my head for the makeover. Come for a visit if you can. xo
