Cheeky Valentine Sneaky Peek

Here's a peek at one of the cards from the quick cards section of Papercraft Inspirations magazine, on sale in the UK on monday.
My brief was to make a simple 'cheeky' Valentine card, here's what I came up with.
I love these sissix doll face rub ons, they have such great expressions.
I gave one of the girlie feet a ribbon bow, she looks very shocked, can't imagine what he's up to.........................

I really need to sort my stuff out, I could do with a secretary/sorter extraordinaire to get me organised. I am sure that even with my limited space I could organise my papers into some system that doesn't involve rummaging around for hours in various boxes to find stuff that matches. Maybe I will try and do it by colour. I do have my plain cardstock in drawers according to colour, that works pretty well, it's the 12 x 12 pattern paper I have a problem with. Then there's the two sided paper - hmmm, now do I file it under blue, or red for the reverse side. Or maybe all my double sided papers can go together. HELP. Anyone got any great ideas?

Enfy,
I love your card. So cute!!! It is published in a magazine, I'm impressed. With your talent I'm assuming it's not your first time? Great job. Shari (cricutrookie)

Oh, Enfys, those tootsies are adorable. Love the expression you gave the girl! V day will be before I'm ready ..

How cute!! I too used to have trouble organizing my paper. I have the pattern paper is the rolling carts that hold the 12x12hanging files. Works great.

Oh Enfys.. how adorable... love the look of the faces. If you get any suggestions I would love to know what they are..

Love it Enfys - had a real chuckle! As to organizing papers - all ideas welcome. I seperate flat colours into boxes. The 12 x 12 I keep in collections and by makers - and I spend ages trying to mix and match - then spend ages trying to return all unused to boxes or my overflowing bits box - ahhhhhhhh!

Love the toes!! What could they be up too? :)Very cute!
As to the paper sorting, I'll make an entry on my blog. It was just too long for a post here!

Carol said...

Oh my ... Enfys, this card made me giggle. I will never again be able to see a pair of bare feet without out also imagining a silly little face on them too! *wink*
Hugz,

OMG En! When I was scrolling down my sidebar this JUMPED out at me. TOO CUTE for WORDS! (Will probably scraplift. LOL) I do my patterned paper sort of by pattern (which doesn't work BTW). Would love to figure something else out too. xxD

I love the feet and the faces are too cute. For paper sorting, I have some racks where I put all my double sided paper. My 12x12 sheets are in ziplock bags by type (stripes, dots, valentines, birthday, etc) in a milk crate. By books of papers are in tact in drawers. I am not so sure I am organized any more.
