My die organization and my storage solution to save money!!

Hello friends! 

I've been working hard in the studio, getting it ready for a tour. It all started when I did my "What's in my Basket" video. I started to purge through the contents and decided to organize them all into new envelopes and maybe new containers too.... but did I really want to pay another $40-$60?? Not really. Let me share with you what I did to save some money on my containers and how I finally got all of these dies, stamps and embossing folders stored!

Here's my video!

If you would like to watch Corene's box tutorial video, HERE it is!

1- The envelopes I purchased for this project:

πŸ’•Small CD envelopes from Simon Says Stamp
πŸ’•Small CD envelopes I purchased from
πŸ’•Medium sized Sizzix envelopes I purchased from
πŸ’•Large envelopes from Amazon

2- Other products mentioned:

Scor-Tape Double side adhesive
☺ Lowe's Magnetic sheet vent covers
☺ Baskets are from Micheals and no longer available. Comparable to mine are these from Amazon. Any non tapered basket will work best for this project.

One of my fav things to do is Candle making!!

Hey guys!

I've recently went into business with my sister Lisa and her daughter Alissa in LA. While caring for my dad (there's all f us kids) sometimes there's downtime. We've created a beauty line, a Vegan beauty/skincare/aromatherapy line 😁 full of all natural components and high end ingredients and I gotta say, we are very proud of our recipes! You can find us on IG

My role?? Making candles and wax melts and I LOVE it! I researched for 2 months or so....the process, different waxes, different oils, different blends, it's good to find what works for you, then....ahhhh 😍 I've found it just as therapeutic as scrapbooking. So, I make candles for myself now!

One of my favorite places to get some of my fragrance oils is 

I recently ordered from them and did a haul video where I share what I got and what all the scent notes are!!

One of my fav candlemakers to watch on youtube is Erica from "Memory Box Candle Co" on youtube! Check her out!

SO now I leave you with my haul video! 

See ya later makers!!

What's in my basket??

Hello again friends!

I was so excited that I was able make another video before I left for LA to share! This basket had been sitting for 3-4 years and although I had picked in it for a couple of projects here and there I still didn't know what all was in it. When I started recording and took everything out I saw tons of adorable Coco and Reno die sets in there that I just had to save them for last. Glad I did too because OMG I'm just in love with them!!

This video was almost 2 hours long because of all the gasping shock of cuteness that was in there and not to mention my zillions of sneezes....I had some bad allergy juju this day that my ribs, sides and back were just sore from it, it was bad ya'll! So, I was able to edit and condense the video to 42 minute because there were tons of goodies to share.

I hope you enjoy the video (I had so much fun recording again!). There are some links I mentioned in the video that I will link below for you to check out ok!
