Product Talk Thursday

Hey guys! So sorry I didn't post yesterday! I ended up having to clean up my work space (OMGosh it was awful!) which was part of my Product Talk Wednesday (er, Thursday now). But before we start talking about all of that I want to share the card I made on Tuesday for the SCS color challenge. Colors were Real Red, Creamy Caramel, and Barely Banana. I'll have to say at first I was weary on those colors but once I got the card going I really liked it! This card was also one of Lisa Johnson's challenges. I absolutely LOVE this layout and have a feeling I will be using it much more! The butterfly is chipboard painted red with white dots courtesy of my Soufflee pen.


  • Barely Banana, Creamy Caramel, Real Red CS
  • Stazon Jet Black ink
  • Studio G stamp ($1 acrylic set)
  • Marvy Giga scalloped square
  • heart eyelets
  • Cropodile (my first time using it!)
  • red acrylic paints, Soufflee pen, pop dots, ribbon

Okay, up next is a sheet I did of the comparison of the die's or punches I have that work well with eachother. I use the Cuttlebug flower dies so much more often not as flowers! They work great as little borders for 1 inch circle punches! Here is the chart. Check it out!
*None of these punches are SU by the way*

Now on to the Product Talk Tuesday!! This week I want to feature a shelf system that I got at Target. It is from the Organize It line and I can't say enough good things about it. But you want to know the best part!?! It was on sale for $29.99!!! Worth every penny! Hubby has one in his fishing/hunting/golfing/trapping/reloading/bowling room. Hmm, think he has too many hobbies!? {wink} Anyway! These 5 shelf units are normally $39.99 but you can catch them one sale for $10 less! They also have smaller sizes with 3 shelves if this one is too big.

-6 ft. tall
-3 ft. wide
-1 1/2 ft. deep



*Pros*
-Pretty easy to put together (about 30 minutes from opening the box, to figuring out where you want your shelves, to standing it up where you want it)
-Adjustable shelves
-Can be taken apart if you need to move or anything else
-CHEAP!
-Very sturdy heavy metal shelves
-Get a cute guy at Target to help you take it to your car! {wink}

*Cons*
-The plastic pieces you snap onto the poles to place your shelves will pop off if you try to slide the shelf in place too fast.
-Well, that first one is pretty much it!



*I wanted to show how even though the middle of the rack is full of heavy mags and such, it doesn't bow. These shelves are super strong!


Well, I hope I have given you a little insight on what you should check out if you are looking for durable and roomy storage!!

See ya tomorrow!

Love the card! I'd be wary of those colours too, but you've put them together really well. As for storage... don't get me started!

Gorgeous card! I love the chipboard butterfly with white dots. The rounded corners and small, crisp sentiment are such a great look.
