Organizing Lace Ideas

I've said it before and I'll say it again!  "I love to organize"!! So lately I have had organizational issues with my various laces, so I went out and did a little searching for ideas and thought I would share some with you.  Since Wild Orchid Crafts happens to have the most fabulous laces around, this may be quite helpful for some of you! These are just a few of my favorites and from this I have my very own idea ready to get to work on and as soon as I'm done with my little project I promise to post it and show you all.

This first one I thought was pretty cute.  She displays them in a vase and uses rulers and paint sticks.  You can find more info HERE.

Now here's another desktop idea.  Found this one HERE
.
This next one is a little more my style!! Love how organized it looks! haha  HERE is the original site.

Now for the very practical organizer.  I  found this one HERE.

 Last, but not least, my ultimate favorite!!!!!! CUTE tags!!!  See more HERE.



I hope this gives you an idea of how to store or organize those pretty Wild Orchid Crafts lace pieces!



Have a wonderful day!!


Hugs, Dena

A Lace Rose!

Hello everyone!
I have a tag to share with you today. I wanted to go for that shabby Chic feel, so I've used lots of lace and flowers. I just love the little lace rose I made. All I did was punch out a 1 1/2 circle,
 put some Scor-Tape all over the circle, and started in the center wrapping the lace around. Then I took a pearl brad and stuck it in the center.

I hope you like my tag. Have a wonderful day!

Hugs, Mindy



Supplies
Paper - Authentique, Xpress and SU
Ink - Memento and Copics
Accessories - misc charm, large pearl,  SU eyelet, cheese cloth

Flowers, flowers everywhere!

And all of them Wild Orchid Crafts! 
Hello there friends! I am here today to share a card with you that I made for my in-law's 40th wedding anniversary.


The card was cut on my Cricut machine and features a Magnolia stamp "Wedding Couple" from the Wedding collection of 2010. 


I have used a lot of different flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts...



Ok so I did go overboard a teeny bit, but it was for a special occasion after all! 


The card has a little pocket on the back which houses the tag for the message. I needed to create this as I didnt want to write on the inside of the card as it would be seen from the front.

Just another angle and a close up :)

I hope you like my card with its flower overload :)
And I hope you are having a lovely weekend!
Until next time,
Hugs Kylie
