I ordered the new file tab thinlit dies from the 2014/15 catalogue and started wondering how I could use them. I came up with this easy project to make a card file. Perfect for storing our standard sized cards.
I think I'll be making these with my club girls this week. It makes a quick and easy project. Love that!
Here's my inspiration, from the Real Simple website. I think mine came out pretty close to the inspiration piece!
I have a word document with a quick dimensional tutorial. I hope to be publishing it shortly. If you want a copy NOW, drop me your email address in the comments section.

Welcome to June's Creative Crew! This month's theme is "Demos just Wanna Have Fun!" ... how fun is that? The Design Focus is to use our favourite colour. If you want to play along, make a card (or project) using YOUR favourite colour and use the keyword CCREW0614DF uploading to the SCS Gallery.
My colour of the moment is Coastal Cabana. Isn't it fresh and crisp? It screams seaside to me so what better set to use than the brand new "Sea Street".
The Octopus was stamped in Coastal Cabana classic ink, then I used the blendabilities to highlight certain areas. Did you know you could colour on top of our classic ink? Clever! Here's a close up of my shading. Need to practice ;)
The HOLIDAY FOCUS I chose for June's Crew is Father's Day. I'll be visiting my Dad this month (can't wait) so I made this card for him. It uses the lobster from the set, By the Tide. Dad loves the sea, and everything in it, and he loves to eat lobster. This one was coloured with our new Blendabilities so it's already cooked and ready to eat ... ha! I made the card long and lean, it's 7" tall and 2 3/4" wide.
My final project features my favourite item. Right now, it's the blendabilities. I LOVE THEM. I mean, truly, they are fantastic .... you really need to try them out. I'm no expert, so if I can make them look good, then anyone can. Here's my CAS birthday card. The colouring is the focal point of this card ... look at the tiny pearls. Yep, coloured with Blendabilities :)
Take a quick look at the pearls I used on the flower center. They are coloured with the darkest colour in the Coastal Cabana pack. How fabulous is that? Tailored colours on our embellishments. Not just pearls either, you can custom colour your rhinestones. Oh the possibilities ;)
