Flip Flops Galore

Happy Friday,

I hope you have all had a wonderful week. I am entering this card in several challenges. Midweek Magnolias Happy Birthday to my sweetest daughter-in-law Amanda. Just Magnolia All the B's - Birthday, Blonde, Bling, Beach and Beautiful. And lastly, Tilda's Town Your Favorite Tilda - which is Flip Flop Tilda. What can I say I love the beach and she is a beauty.....

Here is the recipe for the card:

Magnolia Stamps - Flip Flop Tilda & Sunrise Key West
Copic Markers
Glimmer Mist - Fairy Garden & Sea Glass for the water
Perfect Pearls Mist - Sunflower Sparkle - first on the sun I used a dauber with several shades of pink then I misted with the perfect pearls to add some sparkle & shine
Turquoise Netting
AMUSE -Happy Birthday Sentiment
Iron Orchid Designs Beach Cottage Paper & Stickers which I mounted on a thin cardboard to give them dimension
Gathered Twigs distress ink
Memory Box Dies- Sandal Border
Hibiscus Flower
Tropical Leaf
Pastry Label

Here is a close-up:

Just Magnolia - Week 164–All the B’s!
Tilda's Town - Challenge #8 - Favorite Tilda
MidWeek Magnolias- Week #18 - Happy Birthday!

Now for organizing these precious stamps. I purchased 1-inch Martha Stewart Binders with the plastic inserts at Staples. The inserts work perfect they have a smaller size too which are perfect for the minis (4 to a page). They also had brown or red binders.  Then I went on-line to different websites and moved the pictures of each image into a word doc, formatted the page, printed and put the collection and the name of the stamp under each image. Lastly, I organized them by collection. It works wonderfully no more rummaging through boxes. I hope this helps! If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me.
