From the Desk of...

Mom, Chuck, and I went to the Scrapbook Expo in Orlando and I bought a bunch of new goodies, including this great paper. It is called "Mabel Papers" by My Mind's Eye. I'm supposed to be using supplies up, not buying them, but you can never have too much paper.

Using one of Lauren Meader's, My Timeless Templates, I created this desk organizer. The template is appropriately named, "From The Desk Of" and it can be purchased/downloaded at Papertrey Ink. The front is embellished with a little ribbon, some pearly swirls and a hand crocheted flower. I made four cards using the Mabel Papers, ribbon, and some Martha Stewart punched flowers. The sentiments is from My Favorite Things, "Framed Greetings" stamp set and matching die.

I used my coluzzle to cut out these mini file folders. The four folders are six inches long and they fit perfectly in the back of the organizer. The folders were embellished with some more paper punched flowers, pearls, and oval label. You can't seen in the picture, but the two RSVP pens have a little bit of paper inside the barrel to match the cards.

This would make a nice gift for a birthday or Mother's Day which is right around the corner.
