CRAFT ROOM

I was sharing our siting room with my husband. Half of it was our office and half my craft room. Since my son move to college I have been wanting to either move upstairs or put the office upstairs. After discussing with my family it was decided to keep the craft room downstairs and move the office upstairs but it was taking awhile. So I asked my husband for my new craft room for Christmas and that is what he gave me.

Before Pictures




We moved the desk upstairs and I used my Christmas money from my In-Laws and purchased items from Ikea and we built a desk. I also purchased cabinets and we put them together. I painted the room a peach color from Lowes. I used my old desk to hold my scraprack. 


My loving husband putting my cabinets together.

We secured the 2 table tops with brackets and two legs underneath in the back as well as the cabinets at the ends. 










I am so happy with the finished project. It is so great to finally have room for all my stuff. 

UPDATE

Sorry I haven't been posting anything in awhile. I have been very busy.

I have been making several cards and scrapbooking pages since my last post. I will be posting a bunch of pictures of what I have done and what I am currently doing.

If there is anything you want more details about please let me know.

This year I made a promise I would put some focus on my blog as well as my Stampin' Up Independent Demonstrator status but I wanted to put my new craft room together which I have finally done. So I will now try to work on my blog.

Thanks
Christy

SDBH - Favorite Stampin' Up DSP



This month's Challenge is to show our favorite Designer Series Paper. 

I have several papers I love and I used some of them to make Christmas cards for my daughter's dance teachers. 

The only thing about the music paper from Merry Music DSP is that it needed some bling. So I added some glitter.

Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop for October: Black, White, & One Color


Our theme this month is Black, White, & One Other Color.

I choose gold as my other color and this is what I came up with this month. 





I had a hard time with this one because I love me some color but when I saw these dies I thought this would work. I am happy how it turned out. Hope you are too. 

It is hard to see in the photos but the bottom two layers are pushed up with dimensional dots and the Merry Christmas is embossed with gold powder. I was going to do white but the gold looked better except in the pictures. 

I love the embossing paste that Stampin' Up is now carrying. You can do so much with it. 

Supplies Used:
Paper: Gold Foil, Merry Little Christmas DSP, Whisper White
Ink: Versa Mark, Whisper White Ink Refill
Dies: Hometown Greetings, Card Front Builders
Stamps: Star of Light
Embossing Powder: Gold
Embossing Paste

Fall Leaves



Another fall card with the Baby Wipe Technique. When you do this technique you want to make several cards at one time.
I also love backgrounds but sometimes they are time consuming. This one was pretty easy. Stampin' Up ink blends very nicely on glossy paper. 


Covering the glossy paper with ink makes it more friendly with the Polymer Stamps.

Supply List:
Paper: Glossy White, Crushed Curry
Inks: Pool Party, Tempting Turquoise, Soft Sky, Pear Pizzazz, Garden Green, Early Espresso
Ink Refills: Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze
Stamps: Colorful Season
