Hey there, today is the March release date for the newest Gossamer Blue kits. This month's kits are full of vibrant colors and fun embellishments, perfect to lead us out of this wintry season. You can find all the kits for March at Gossamer Blue's home page. You can also visit the blog for some inspiring projects and more details. March kits go on sale today at 10am PST.
Before I share my projects throughout this month.....I created almost 30 items from the kits.....I thought it would be fun to share my storage system for organizing monthly kits and my newest supplies. I dug this wire dish drainer out of my stash and keep it on a table top in my craft room. I don't have a source as I've had it quite awhile. I don't believe it was vintage so you might be able to find something similar if you're interested. I also keep a stack of vintage milk glass relish dishes handy.
This type of storage would work well for any monthly kits you receive or perhaps you just want to showcase some of your newest items. I firmly believe that if you keep items out in full view, you will be more likely to use those supplies. It definitely works for me. Note: all of the supplies you see below are from a mix of this month's kits from Gossamer Blue. It's like a rainbow!
The largest section of the dish drainer is intended for standing up plates. I use those divided sections to hold larger flat items like sticker sheets, chipboard sheets, 6 x 6 paper pads, larger packages of embellishments, etc. When I get paper scraps, I clip them together with a clothespin and store them in a section too. The dividers provide just the right separation for me to easily see what I've got in there.
On the side of the dish drainer, I prop up my 12 x 12 patterned papers, sticker and embellishment sheets, etc. I keep a piece of 12 x 12 cardboard at the very back so that the papers don't bend over. A clothespin keeps the papers all clipped together.
Okay, off to take Jordan in for her driver's test. This kid....most want to get their learner's permit the day after their birthday. Not her, she's waited til the last minute and she has Driver's Ed this next semester. So off we go. Then it's Sub State play tonight for Josey. Go Cats!!
