Black & White

I don't know if it's just me but I am struggling like mad to be creative right now. I am becoming increasingly conscious of the amount of stuff I am accumulating and not getting to use. My stash is evident in practically every room of the house and it's starting to get on my nerves now, and I'm feeling sympathetic towards Himself and the boys for having to see it all the time too. Occasionally I like to sit at the dining table and make something, but as every papercrafter knows, this involves having to have reams of paper/card, adhesive, images, stamps, inks, embellishments, etc., by your feet and therefore the dining room occasionally becomes Craft Room #2. However, all these recent horrific images of people's furniture and belongings floating out of the front door has really shocked me - I've taken immediate action and stacked it all onto the table!!!! ;o)While I was going through my stash I found a sheet of Basic Grey Black Tie folders that I picked up in March when I went to a Scrap Genie Demonstrator's day. It's sat in my drawer since then gathering dust, so I decided to have a play around with it and this is what I came up with. The stamp on the front was a mag cover freebie (I can't remember which one?) which I heat embossed with Marcasite EP. I loved the shape of the folder so I've made a template of my own using the punched out area as a guide so that I can make some more. The rollerbind-edged strip on the tag and insert was an idea I shamelessly lifted from a card I'd seen by Aud and I had to use it.
Thanks for looking! :o)
