My Doo Hickey Storage

Hello to you all… today I would love to show you something I made for myself.
I hardly ever keep something for me that I make. Some may remember the magnet die storage book I altered for my friend Chrissy for Christmas? Well.. I have about 5 in use for myself and I started to tackle the first one. The plan is to decorate them all in different colors – this one has a green ribbon reminding me that I have “floral” dies inside this book.

I kept the book for me as flat as possible with no embellishments raising up because I deal with limited storage space so my books have to be able to stand up like books and slide in and out without worrying I rip something accidently off. However it was HARD to keep it flat :-0


I used
Saturated Canary “Poppy” I printed her out 100% and colored her in. It took me 2 days to color her in and used a lot of ink. The main reason I printed her out as large I could I can show you next time.
Papers: Magnolia Ink Black Zebra
Magnolia Ink newspaper
old book page
Magnet storage book
Stampin up flower stamp set
Distress Paint Raspberry
Tim Holtz Stencils, flower stencil
Martha Stewart Texture effect – which I used in white and colored pink with Distress paint,
Alphabet sticker set
