100% Sweetness

I bought this stamp last week at the Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps class that I took.  I enjoyed learning a little bit about colouring with Copics.  I have collected about 70 copics but I haven't used them very often.  I would love to take a copic class and learn more. 
Paper:  SU
Spellbinders Circle dies and Lacy Circle die
Assorted Copics
Ribbon:  SU
Stamps: 100% Sweetness (My Creative Time), Kraftin Kimmie Stamps

Winter Banner

Banners have become my new addiction.  I love the rosettes on them and adding decorative cricut cuts.  I used the B is for Boy Lite cartridge for the banner, Winter Frolic for the boy and girl and the font from the E2.  I made a shimmer mist using and sprayed it on the banner and the rosettes.

Paper:  Stampin Up and DCWV
Cuttlebug Folders: Polka Dots and Snowflakes
Shimmer Mist: Mini mister, Rubbing Alcohol, Frost White Shimmer Paint(SU)

This past weekend I took a class with Kim from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and these are the two really cute cards that we made.   Aren't these stamps adorable?
Thanks for stopping by.

Paper Storage

When I posted pictures of my craft room last week I was asked how I store my paper.  So I took some pictures that show up close my paper storage.  I do have it in a couple of places right now.  All of my paper is pretty much Stampin Up or DCWV.  I don't really buy any single sheets of paper.  I have a couple of Recollections storage pieces that I use for my paper as well as a large storage center that I got at Canadian Tire.
This first photo shows my Stampin Up stacks and Designer Series Paper packs and DCWV stacks.
 In this cube is my holiday stacks and some assorted company stacks.
 The large storage center is where I store my cardstock.  On the left hand side is my 81/2 x 11 SU cardstock.  Each shelf has multiple shades of a colour.  On the right hand side is my 12 x 12 and some 6 x6 cardstock. 
 The drawers in the middle hold my scraps.  Drawer 1 has blue and purple, drawer 2 has red and pink, drawer 3 has green, yellow and orange and drawer 4 has neutrals.  I have a plastic storage drawer that holds my white scraps and patterned paper scraps.

 I just got this basket for Christmas and it is in a cubbie on my Expedite bookshelf.  It holds my DCWV kids stacks (baby boy, baby girl, Nana's Kids etc.).
I will be getting more of these baskets and moving my stacks over to the bookshelf.  This will give me more room for my regular cardstock.
I hope this answers any questions.

Thanks for stopping by.

My Craft Room

My daughter bought me an Expedite bookcase from Ikea for Christmas.  We just went last week and picked it up and my husband put it together on Saturday.  So I spent Saturday evening and Sunday reorganizing my craft room.  I am very fortunate to have the entire family room in our basement as my craft room.  It is a really large room but I have lots of mismatched pieces so it can look kind of disorganized.  My daughter who moved back home last year also has her craft things in the room for now.  With the addition of the new bookcase it has helped the room look a little less cluttered.  My daughter also bought me some really nice purple baskets for Christmas.  I just need to pick up a few more of these baskets.

My husband is working on building me a new desk with storage on both sides.  It will be about 4' x 6' which will give me plenty of room to spread out when I am creating.

Thanks for stopping by.

Throwback Thursday Challenge~Sports Cartridge

This is the first Throwback Thursday Challenge of 2012 and the theme is to use any sports themed  cartridge.  I chose to use the Sportsmania cartridge for my layout.  My husband and I went to see my Niece play soccer last summer and my husband took lots of pictures with his new camera.  So I thought this would be a good opportunity to make a layout for some of the photo's.  He got some really good photo's of her in mid air and about to kick the ball.

Paper: White, Black (Recollections), Old Olive, Real Red (SU), The Guy Stack (DCWV)
Ink: White Gelly Roll Pen
Cartridge: Sportsmania

Make sure to stop by Emma's blog and link up your project using a sports themed cartridge.

Thanks for stopping by.

Valentines Day Banner

I have spent my free time recently working on this Valentine's Day banner.  It was quite time consuming but well worth it.  I used the Sugar & Spice Lite cartridge for the banner cut at 5.5".  The rosettes were 1.5 x 12 strips scored at every 1/4".  The letters are cut at 2" using the American Alphabet Font 3 (love it) that is preloaded on the E2, the hearts are cut at 2" from the George and Basic Shapes cartridge and the chocolate covered strawberry and candy are cut at 2" from the Sweet Shop Lite cartridge.  The patterened paper is an old K & Co stack.  The lacy circle underneath the rosette is cut using a Spellbinder die.
I bought my daughter a BowDabara for Christmas and tried it out to make the tulle bows.  I worked really well and was easy to use.  I think I will have to buy one for myself.

Thanks for stopping by.

This and That

I didn't get around to posting a photo of the Christmas cards that I sent out this year.  I made two different ones but I kept them both simple so it was easy to make in mass production.
 Stamps: My Pink Stamper
Cartridge:  Simply Charmed
Seeing Spots Embossing folder
Paper: DCWV & SU
 This is a day planner that I bought for 75 cents and dressed up a bit with some SU paper Large Oval and Large Scalloped Oval Spellbinders and My Creative Time stamp from the Keepin It Classy set.

I used my new Yummy Imagine cartridge to make this card for my Step-Mom's birthday.  The Imagine makes it so quick and easy.  I love the saying Not old... Vintage. lol

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy New Year!

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and good health and happiness in 2012!

This is a card I made for my Nieces 13th birthday.  I used a new cartridge that I picked up with a gift card that I received for Christmas, All Sports.  My Niece is very athletic and plays hockey so this was perfect.  The patterned paper is from DCWV~The Guy Stack.
The face is from the PKS~Princess Face Assortment.

I am starting to work on some Valentines projects and I am hoping to sell some of my work. 

Thanks for stopping by.
