farm animal baby book

My sister asked me to create an 8x8 animal for a friend's baby shower.  The baby room theme is farm animals and yellow so I decided to create something with that theme.  I repeated some of the pages to keep the album more uniform because I didn't want to limit the new parents to what they would want to put on the pages.

cardstock:  Core'dinations, Bazzill
patterned paper:  Paper Studio
ribbon/fiber:  May Arts
brads:  Recollections
tools:  Cricut & Animal Kingdom cartridge and Martha Stewart double loop border & corner punches

new work station (part 2)

I'm ready to share the final look with you.  I've moved a few different things a few times and I'm sure I might move some things later but not in a way it'll impact the look of my scrap room.
This is right outside the door to my scrap room.  I already know it won't be this neat & tidy all the time but I've made storage easier than it was so clean up should be easier now.

I decided it was best to move all of my paper storage under the work station.  This allowed that small wall to be opened up for a bit more floor space.

This was taken from the very end of the work station.

This is from the other corner of the room. I wanted to share the different views of the room with you.

I hope you enjoyed this little view of my room.  Hopefully you were able to gain a bit of inspiration to use in your room/area as well.

Thank you for visiting!

new work station (part 1)

I've decided that what I was using as a work station was just too small so I went price checking a week or two ago. I decided I wanted a work station that could be used by multiple people and not be shoved against a wall. I've been looking at Pinterest gathering ideas. I found a LOT of ideas I loved ... if only my room was twice as big as it is. Anyway, I decided to go with some unfinished cabinets to use along with some of my JetMax cubes for the base and an exterior wood slab door for the top.

Here are shots of parts of my new work station after the first coat of color.

Check back tomorrow for shots of the finished project.

Thank you for visiting!

stamp pad organization

I've been busy again with some new organization for my craft room. I roped my husband into helping me out on this one ... that extra set of hands was an enormous help on this project.

I had an extra set of JetMax shelves in the closet just collecting dust so I decided to make them into what I needed.  One of the shelves is the back and the other shelf was cut to make the shelves. There was a lot of sawing & drilling involved ... thank you hubby! The "racks" are CD/DVD holders called Media Stix that I purchased at Target. They were around $13 for the 4 pack and hold 60 items in total. The pads that fit well are Stampin' Up! and Craft Smart (Michaels). The pads that are too thick are VersaMark, Staz On, Distress Ink and Stampabilities (Hobby Lobby) which is why I did the shelves as well.

I love that I'm able to keep my embossing/heat gun on the bottom shelf along with my embossing powders. 

I've been  busy with another project that I would like to share with you so check back in a couple days to see what I have to share with you.

Thank you for visiting!
