Below you will find how I store my punches. I do not have very many since they fit in two medium bins.

The pictures below represent my little piece of heaven. I have my own corner in our bonus room and its all mine. I'm still expanding my area but I do have to share it with my husband and girls so for now its my piece of tranquility.

We also used glue for wood and metals and elmer's wood glue to hold the stickers better. We also used Mod Podge Gloss Lustre to give it a high shine and to prevent the stickers from falling off and to keep the stamped images from fading. This was the first time for taking this project on. We tried to make it look old and rustic. Definitely will try more of these wood projects. all of the hardware is from the Tim Holtz line. We first sanded the magazine holder's. Then we stained the and placed on two coats. We then stamped all of the images and used a fixative to seal it. In each step we let it sit a day to ensure all the material was set. We then added the stickers with a little help of some spray glue to hold in place. We then added the Mod Podge to seal and give it some shine. We did two coats of the Mod Podge. The last step was adding the hardware which gave it a antique look. Hopefully our Dads' will like these gifts.

The Fantabulous Challenge Me Monday #63 - Dads
I made these cards for my brother-in-laws Jon and Gary. The cards were made with the following items:
1. Micheal's Recollection Kraft paper cut to 4.5x5.25
2. K&C Company Julianne designer paper 6x6
3. Tim Holtz's stamp "Paris Film"
4. Ranger's Inkssentials fabric artist trading cards natural
5. TPC Studio "travel World" clear stamps
6. Tim Holtz's Distress Stains "peeled paint and antique linen"
7. Tim Holtz's Distress Ink "tea dye and peeled paint"
8. Memento ink "tuxedo black"
9. ColorBox Chalk ink "chestnut roan"
10. The stamps of life "all4Dads"
11. Sandylion Kelly Panacci stamps "time flies"
12. scrapbook adhesives pop dot squares
This was a new technique that I decided to try and it was pretty fun but it could be better. As you see below, the brown card came out better than the green. I learned that it is better to use the same ink stain as the ink pad. I think it would have been better to use "Staz On" to ink the image instead of chalk ink. I really enjoyed using the Tim Holtz's Distress stains. I will definitely buy more since I loved using them. They work great on paper and fabric. I used the Tim Holtz's distress inks to ink the edges of the card. The fabric trading cards are awesome to work with because they already have a sticky back so attaching them to projects is effortless. I also cut strips from the Julianne paper to give it a stripe look on the front of the card.
