Paper rack

Happy Monday, everyone! Let me talk about this baby card first, before I talk about my paper rack. :) I made this for my boss who just had their baby girl this past Thursday. I used Nelli Snellen stamp. Isn't this stamp cute? For this card I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge 69 and I am also entering this for Sentimental Sunday challenge #3.

I layered the baby cow twice with pop-dots and cover the moon with glossy accents. In person, the moon looks glistening and I added glitters to all the stars to make them sparkle.

On last post, I told you that the LSS by my house were closing after 10 years in the business. Needless to say everything must go, including all the fixtures. I went there all 3 days and did some damage. I think I don't have to shop for any cardstock for the next couple years. I have to postpone my Papertrey Ink order as I ended up spend too much at my LSS. I was torn as I want the PTI new releases, but my need for papers won. :)

Back to the rack, they actually used this rack in the store to hang all their rub-ons.I almost get the one that strictly for paper, but ended up choosing this one as I can hang my papers and my clear stamps here.

Since I am planning to hang some stamps on it, I only bought 10 of the plastic trays. Not sure if this is the final arrangement. And, also what I realized, I thought I was pretty good at not collecting too much paper, boy was I wrong. This is only maybe 1/4 or 1/5 of my total paper stash. I only put the ones that I think I reach most often on the rack. The rest still on my old paper organizer lined up on my Ikea shelves.

After all the cleaning, I really wants to do more scrapbook. I have to use up my papers. Some of them are old, but luckily, I always buy papers that reflect my clean and simple taste, like KI Memories, SEI, Chatterbox, so 4 years later, I still love the paper and still want to use it. I love papers, gazing at pretty paterns, colors, makes me happy.

Also, real quick, I want to mention that Digi Doodle Shop is sponsoring Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge. Please check it out and join if you can. You all have a great week! Hugs, Vera.
