graduation card

This is a graduation card I made last week as well.  The stamps I used for this card are "Agapanthus Cluster" from Stampendous and the quote is by DRS.  The paper is from The Paper Cut and the embossing powders are pearl blue (unknown) & black sparkle (The Goose Barn).

I took the pictures with my phone, which explains the poor quality, but you can still get an idea of what I did.

wedding card - w/ stamp info now

UPDATE:  The stamps I used for this card are "Leaf Heart" by Impression Obsession and the quote is by Print Works.  I also forgot to mention that I did take this picture with my phone which explains the quality.

I would like to share a wedding card I made last week. I don't own the stamps and didn't think to write down who they were made by.  I used shimmer cardstock & paper from The Paper Cut and black sparkle embossing powder from The Goose Barn.

storage unit

This Cubical by ClosetMaid was purchased at Target. The canvas bins & photo boxes are from Michaels.  I store my printer, iPod speaker and tool bag on top.  The first row of bins holds large ribbon spools & tulle as well as cards & envelopes and the bottom row of bins holds small items to alter.  The photo boxes hold embroidery floss, packaged bling, baggies, Bind-it-All items and blank tags of many sizes.

The large container on the floor to the right holds layouts to complete.  I found that I like making my little kits of pictures & papers so I have them on hand when I want to work on them or take them to a crop.  The smaller container holds layouts to complete for special books.

Thank you for visiting!  This is the end of my scrap room tour for now.  I hope you enjoyed it and were able to get ideas for your own area.

ribbon storage

This is what I came up with for ribbon storage. I felt this was the best way to go because I had a case of "outta sight, outta mind" where ribbon was concerned.  I feel that now that it's at hand I'll be more apt to use it.

I used 2 cafe curtain rods and 3 double rod brackets to hold all of this up.  The brackets were purchased at Lowes.

I had some ribbon in baggies already so I put these on the back rod with O-ring clips allowing me to use the front rod for the spooled ribbon.

Thank you for visiting!  I have more to share with you in a couple days so please stop back to check it out.

wall storage

Today I'm sharing the wall storage from my scrap room.

These ledge shelves were found on clearance at Target a few months ago. I saw the color & the price and knew I had to get them for this small wall. I have my flowers, Distress Ink pads, dimensional pearls & glitter glues of different brands and alcohol inks on them for easy access.

This is the embellishment storage shelf from Making Memories with an additional ornate ledge shelf on the very top.  I removed the dowel rods from the bottom 2 shelves because I wanted to store more goodies and I had too much ribbon to store there.  I have binder rings & fasteners, loose bling, flock, acrylic paint & Dabbers, flock, buttons, glitter and Distress Crackle paints on here.  The jars on the 2nd & 3rd shelves, which hold my buttons & loose bling, were purchased from Hobby Lobby at 50% off. 

These shelves were still in boxes at Mom & Dad's when we cleaned the house out.  The top shelf holds miscellaneous things like my photo printer and sewing machine.  The bottom shelf holds my punches and Cuttlebug & embossing folders.  I got the bags through the Cricut Rewards program for an awesome price.  I have 2 tension rods attached to the bottom of the shelf which I have some hanger hooks hanging from with some additional goodies.

Thank you for visiting!  I still have more to share so check back in a couple of days to see what else I've done.

cricut storage

Today I'm sharing my Cricut storage with you. I used Cubicals by ClosetMaid (purchased from Target) to store my cartridges alphabetically. My Solutions cartridges are stored in a SnapWare container on the far right shelf.

I store my Expression, Imagine and Gypsy on this chest which was made by my great-great grandfather. Gramma sent it home with us when we visited her last summer in South Dakota. I also store extra albums and goodies inside. I covered a large piece of cardboard with a remnant of tablecloth-like material to pretty up the top and for a clean work surface. I put a nail on the wall right next to the chest to hang my mats so they're in easy reach.

Thank you for visiting!  There's more to share with you so please stop back by.

paper storage

I finally got a craft room  :)    I've been working on it slowly since the rest of the house had top priority.  I'm sure there will be more changes as I go but I'm happy with how it is right now.

I am sharing my paper storage with you today.  I use JetMax cubes and Cropper Hopper paper holders for all of my 12 x 12 papers.  The 2-drawer JetMax cube holds my mat stacks and 6 x 6 pads.  The top piece is the JetMax magazine file which holds my idea books and my 8 1/2 x 11 papers with my glues in the 3 drawers.

I labeled the paper holders with my Dymo label maker.  I have my papers sorted by manufacturer.  I had to sort some of them by collection from there because I have so many by some manufacturers (i.e. Basic Grey, Pink Paislee, K & Company, etc).  I've found this to work for me so that I don't have to do too much searching for coordinating papers.

Thank you for stopping by!  I will be sharing more of my scrap room with you over the next few days so please stop by again.
