Card Rack

I am getting a few people asking where I got the card rack.  I live in Canada and got it at HomeSense which is owned by the same people as Marshall's and TJ Maxx.  So you could possibly find it there in the US.  If you go to Google and search card racks you can also find sites that sell them.  I would really like a floor model.
Thanks for stopping by.

My New Craft Room

I am finally somewhat organized in my new craft room.  I moved from a bedroom in the basement to take over the whole family room in the basement.
 This is my paper storage.  The left side is 8 1/2" x 11" cs, the right side is 12 x 12 cs, the drawers inbetween hold my scraps and my stacks are on top.  The white drawers hold my cutting systems (CM), heat gun, label maker and punches on the side.

 This the things I want close by when working.  This is beside my chair.
 My work area with a good view of the TV.
 My stamps are in the white cupboard.  In the hutch I keep all of my things to be altered.  Frames, tiles, notebooks, etc.  In the cabinet under the TV is my cricut cartridges.
 My cricut and cuttlebug station.
My work table.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cricut Everyday Cartridge

I am not a Cricut Circle member but I bought this cartridge from someone who didn't want this cartridge.  Anytime Provo Craft did a survey I would ask for a cartridge with craft things on it.  They finally did that and it was a Circle exclusive.  I was so upset so when Erin Lee asked on FB if anyone wanted to buy it I jumped on it.  This cartridge goes perfectly with Emma's stamps, Paper Princess.  I am thinking that I will cut some things from this cartridge with vinyl and decorate my craft room, laptop and cricut.
For the sentiment I used the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags.
Thanks for stopping by.

Vinyl Wall Decor

Sorry I haven't posted much lately, I am moving my craft room.  I was in a 14 x 16 bedroom in the basement ( I know I am very lucky to have that area).  I am now taking over the family room which is probably about 14 x 20.  I am trying to get it all organized and I have things everywhere right now.    I did this project in the middle of all the chaos.  Everything will be in place soon and I am looking forward to crafting.
I have been wanting to do some vinyl wall decor for my bathroom for awhile now but I wasn't sure what to do.  I searched some websites that sell vinyl lettering for some ideas and this is what I came up with.  I used my gypsy to lay everything out.  I used a 12 x 24 mat which was the perfect size for the area I had.  I wanted something wide because the window is centered but the toilet isn't so smaller pictures that I tried to put there didn't look right.

Thanks for stopping by.

Throwback Thursday Challenge~St Patricks's Day~

This weeks challenge over at is to use any older cartridge with the theme of St Patrick's Day.  Well what is more known for St Paddy's than green beer. 
I also want to send my thoughts and prayers out to Emma and her husband Aaron.  Aaron has had some health concerns and I hope you have all the answers soon and a quick recovery.

You may not be able to see it in this picture but I cut the beer mug out of the packaging from a cricut cartridge and layered the paper behind it.  I used the regular blade with the multi cut x2.
Paper:  Basic Black (SU) , all other paper is DCWV (Black current & Brights & Jewels Stacks)
Cartridge:  Gypsy Wanderings
Punches:  Word Window, Modern Label (SU)
Stamps:  Teeny Tiny Wishes (SU)
Embellishments:  Ribbon (SU), Liquid Applique (Marvy), Buttons ($ store)

Thanks for stopping by.
