Here's my Easter cards, I made 16 - 2 each color. I got the design from the Silhouette store, its an A2 card.
FYI- for the card to stand I sliced 1/8" off the bottom.

Birthday card for niece

Here's a card I made for my niece. The card is 9" h ( scored at 4.50 and folded in half). So the card is 4.50"h x 6.50"w.   I got the princess image from Lettering Delights -"more Happily ever After", she measures 4" but I took the knife and cut her about 1/4" under her fingers, then did a no cut and added her to a background that measured 6.25"w x 4.25"h . I made the window 3"h x 2.75" w and found the shutters in the Silhouette store -"build a house" and they measure 3"h x 1.37"w and I welded tabs 2.75"h x.25"w to the shutters so I could open and close the shutters. I just love how it came out!

jetmax /Recollections file drawer

that's the xyron: 5", 2.5" and 1.5"

inside view

I held a pencil along the slat and drew a line, then punch 1/8" holes above the line and 1/2" apart and wrapped yarn around the bottom slat

bottom of file drawer...LOL I used the front and back of the box. I cut the cardboard 13 1/2 wide x 12 5/8 h. On one piece draw your lines and punch your holes FIRST! then glue the pieces together and after a few hours repunch your holes.

side view of bottom, the cardboard piece lines up perfectly with the slats

TA DA!!! that my crafty friends is creative storage!!!! Now my xyron machines are off my craft desk but within easy reach. LOVE IT!!!!
I'm back to rearranging my craftroom and ORGANIZING my crafts!!! have 3 more jetmax cubes to put together....
