Happy Summer fellow crafters!  Natasha here and I hope you are all enjoying the warm weather and relaxing time with your families, but don't forget to squeeze in a little crafting time for yourself.  :o)
Today I would like to share a project I made using Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden Collection and The Dusty Attic's Large Storage Drawers.  This storage set is easy to assemble and decorate.  It comes with sixteen drawers, but I removed four drawers so that I could further alter my project.
The entire drawer set was painted with white acrylic paint.  It was then misted and masked using Glimmer Mist.  I adhered several hand-made flowers, as well as flowers and bling made by Prima, to the sides of my project.
This flower was hand-made using coordinating papers.  You can find a tutorial for this flower HERE.
All of the chipboard elements including the vine, butterflies, ornate corners and mini words are also made by The Dusty Attic. 
I attached Foundations Metal Feet by Tim Holtz to the bottom corners of my project.  I also added a Rose Trim by Prima to the open spaces.
This chipboard vine is one of my favorite chippies!  It is so delicate and intricate.  I inked it with Distress Ink and highlighted each leaf with coordinating Stickles.
Before I go, I would like to show you how I organize my clear stamps.
I store my stamps in Cropper Hopper Unmounted Stamp Books.  I labeled each stamp book using divider tabs and hung them on a Clip It Up Wall Mount.
The smaller stamps are stored in CD jewel cases that are organized in pull-out trays.
I also created a stamp catalog by scanning the transparencies that came with each stamp set.  This helps me see which stamps I own and I can find them more easily.
That's all for today!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek at my project.  Have a beautiful day!
