Let's Get Organized Blog Hop!

Welcome to the "Let's Get Organized Blog Hop". The Design Team at Paper Piecings By Nikki is hoping to inspire you with some organizational ideas. Please grab your favorite beverage and hop along with us. There will be some candy along the way - and lots of ideas.

For My project I made a magazine holder from the Artiste cartridge.  You can only buy these from a Close to My Heart Consultant.  Please message me if you would like the link to my consultant's store, she is awesome!!

I cut the magazine holder out at 6 inches which will fit the standard A2 size cards with envelopes.  Then I decorated using So Junglicious for this cute pink elephant, then for the squirrel on the front, I used A Bunch of Nuts from Nikki's store.  You can decorate these with a birthday theme and put just birthday cards in it, baby cards, etc.  You are only limited by your imagination - you can use pretty patterned paper for the magazine holder and make Mothers Day, Fathers Day cards too :)


Now for my blog candy!!  I will give away 3 of these magazine holders.  I will cut them out and mail them to you to put together and decorate!!  If you want me to score them for you, just let me know and what color you would like - I will cut them out in solid cardstock.




Thanks for hopping by - your next stop along the way is (Pam and Kimi ). Made sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win a free file of your choice from www.paperpiecingsbynikki.com.

Make sure to 'like' Paper Piecings By Nikki on facebook and to check her store each day for a fabulous freebie! Also, did you know that Nikki has lowered her prices??? Yes, she sure did. You will find everything in her store is just .99 everyday! If you haven't tried her files yet - now is the time. No matter what program or cutter you use, you will find a file extension to use in each and every pattern.

Thanks so much for hopping along with us...Do you have a organizational tip? Please let us know what it is!
