Home is where the NAVY sends US


My family is in the process of moving from Sicily, Italy back to the United States. Our house hold goods were packed out Tue & Wed and Yes that includes my Stamp "Studio" aka "the closet"!! I will be without the majority of my supplies until August. I know that is a Tragedy but the good news is I will have a real ART STUDIO at my new home.
HERE is a PHOTO
My supplies have been reduced down to a SINGLE RUBBERMAID and that will be shipped next Friday!!!
This week the ABC Toys & Crafts Design Team and I are featuring the STAMPAVIE lines and if your order includes STAMPAVIE products, the your SHIPPING is FREE !!! Hurry this ends on Saturday. USE THIS DISCOUNT CODE: FREESH529

Is this not the most perfect stamp ever to announce our new address??
I agree -- PERFECT stamp (Helz Cuppleditch (puppy dog moving house) and you would not believe how quickly this project came together. The sentiments were computer generated and I added a little red "Stickles" directly onto my brad. Everything else was a scrap that I had lying around my work space.
Here is a close up so you can see the details

CHALLENGES I USED:
Crafty Creations: Use your favorite stamp (this will be my favorite stamp until I finish making my change of address cards)
Stamp Something: 2 of Something (2 computer generated sentiments, 2 patterned papers, 2 embellishments)
Pile It On: Out of the Box (my interpretation is because moving is all about boxes and right now my entire studio is in a SINGLE BOX)
Crafty Ann's: Lots of Color
Sew Many Challenges: Anything Goes

.............Supplies I used.............
Stamps: Stampavie-Helz Cuppleditch (puppy dog moving house)

Ink: Copic Markers, Momento (tuxedo black)
Patterned Paper: DCWV paper stack,
Cardstock: Bazzill (brown textured), Paper Trey Ink (red, white)
Tools: Spellbinders (Nestabilities labels)
Misc: Stickles (red), Stampin Up (star brad), Ribbon Trends by the Paper Studio

Oh wow!!! Your studio will be fabulous. Worth the sacrifice for a while. You should have heard me after the Moving Company Rep left (he came to evaluate what we had to move). He told us it would be up to 10 days before our stuff arrived from FL to Tx. CRAZY. And then it dawned on me "MY PHOTO"S" Luckily DH had not left for TX yet, so I rushed to pack up all my photo's and sent them with him. 10 days in the heat would not have been good. Next problem, my stamps. Yep, we are renting a seperate U-haul and moving alot of the craft stuff ourselves, teehee. I feel your pain chick!

Melisa Waldorf said...

Oh, and that image is made an ADORABLE moving card!

Jan said...

Justine,
It's taken me forever to get with you. So sorry you are already packed out. Impressed that you got tutti in a Rubbermaid tub! My blog is www.rakinsandscrapins.blogspot.com, and one of my early ones is about life w/Rubbermaid. Please stay in touch!
