New Scrap Area

I decided to switch my scrap room yet again. I was in the storage "closet" of the basement. It was hard to go in there and work on stuff when the kids where on the other side of the wall playing and getting into trouble. So now I moved it into a corner of the basement opposite of their pay area. This way I can scrap and make sure that my kids stay out of TROUBLE.

Here is what it looked like before:


Now this is what I have done to it.

Table in which I craft:


Shelf that my dad made a long time ago no holds my embellishments, magazines and misc.


I am using an old book shelf and dresser to house albums, paper, stamps and other misc


Of course I would always love to have it organized with matching storage items but that doe snot happen when you are on a tight budget and buy too much stuff! ((rolling eyes))

So here is where I create! I hope you enjoy. I also hope that I can get some of my mojo back. I am getting there.......slowly. :)

Weekend Crop at Sassy Cards N Scraps

I have started some of the challenges over at Sassy Cards N Scraps. But like some of you know I just am not fast making things. So they are moving along quite slowly. Here is my first one it is a sketch challenge.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my interpretation:

I used the Cricut for the Title using Makin the Grade Cartridge, some fibers and Berry Bliss paper from Stampin Up!.

This one was a challenge to use the quote "Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you."--Dr. Seuss

So I took the quote and typed it in Word and used Word Art to create it into a oval. Than I decorated a King Size Hershey Bar with paper and embellishments, put the quote on and when I give it to someone I will stamp their name in the oval.

Photo Cube

I have been trying to find things to make out of miscellaneous items in the house. Well a lady on one of the boards that I visit posted this blog tutorial how to make a photo cube out of cd cases. I do not like how my version turned out. But I do think that when I have more time to spend I am going to make some of these for Christmas gifts. They will definately be decorated better!Photobucket

I did this quick card today. I really like it! It is the shoppingbella stamp and I used Bic Mark it Markers to color it in. Patterned paper is from the DCDW Rockstar stack. Pink Prima from Prima and bling is from me and my Big Ideas.
