Craft Room Old vs. New

Well here it is!  I have been updating my Craft room this past month and although I still have some work to do I thought I would share my progress.  I wanted to post a project today but I never got any real work done so this is it!  I still have to paint behind the bookshelves and I have no before or after photos of that side. 

I did these photos up on MDS.    Let me know what you think ...

The Accessories list is long and please when you see it do not panic (my heart almost stopped) there are a lot of papers and ink pads (in fact all of the classic pads) but this is due to the fact that they are coming out with a new foam design!  See the notes below to explain why the list is so long ..

  • Only select Stampin' Write Markers will be available individually (Stampin' Write Markers in colour collections will continue to be offered)
  • 12" x 12" Textured Card Stock will no longer be offered

    Super Excited!!! I Made the Cut.

    I am Super Excited that the Paper Players choose my set of 3x3 Easy Events Cards as one of their Cut Above selections!   I love doing challenges because they are just that, a Challenge! I have to be pushed outside my comfort zone sometimes and I truly enjoy looking at all of the other cards entered in the Challenges.  They are very inspiring.   I have never entered a challenge thinking about the winner but of course who would not want to win!   The Cut Above is the section where each of the Paper Players Team picks one card that they like and Lesley picked my little 3x3 Card set!  It was a wonderful surprise, Thanks Lesley!

    Paper Players Challenge - Watercolours

    I found another challenge to play along with.  This week the Paper Players had a challenge using watercolours.  This is a real challenge for me. I never use watercolours, I am always forgetting to go there.  I love my markers and chalks but I think after this challenge, watercolours may appear more in my cards.  It was so much fun.   I have been on a bit of a 3x3 kick lately and last year at the SU convention I got a set call Easy Events.  I thought this set has the perfect images for water colouring.  Let me know what you think.  

    Check out the Paper Players website for the rules and for some wonderful inspiration. 

    Thanks for looking.  Have a great day

    Button Buddies - Happy Birthday

    When I first started buying Stampin Up products I went straight for the Regals Collection of Colours.  I love the colours and in my house they are on my walls and in my furniture but in card making and crafting I find I am using more and more brights!  The new Summer Smooches DSP is a great example of how fun the Brights Collection can be.   Below is a card I made a while ago using the most wonderful stamp set "Button Buddies" 

    If you are looking for an all purpose stamp set that is fun for everyone;  Adults and Kids, Birthday, Sympathy, Thank you cards, Scrapbook pages and so much more...
