My Little Ballerina - Monochromatic

Over at A RANDOM FAN this week, we have a Monochromatic challenge for you to play along with. Here is my card using, yet again, Concord Crush and Wisteria Wonder. I have used Sherry's Digital image called My Little Ballerina. I really love this stamp. So, head on over to the Random Fan site, play along with the latest challenge, and who knows, this little cutie may just end up in your shopping cart for FREE.

Its all FRILLY

Here is my card for the challenge this week over at STAMPIN ROYALTY and its all about making a project with frills. Do you know how had this is, especially when you have three males in the family, that do not do anything frilly. So I used my Blendabilities with this stamp from Stampin Up, called Blended Bloom. I matched the colouring with Wisteria Wonder card stock and designer paper and also a hint of Concord Crush, previously retired. Head on over to Stampin royalty and make something frilly for the challenge.

Sketch Saturday featuring A Random Fan

I made this card for the Sketch Saturday challenge and totally forgot to email it through! Wow, my head had been everywhere else lately. So here is the card I made. I think I will have to upload it directly to the Sketch Saturday blog now.

Craft Room - All together

Finally, I have finished the back wall of my craft room. The final piece of the puzzle came together when I used the large drawer unit to put all my Stampin Up stamps in. I can fit lots of them in the drawers, which leaves a whole shelf in the wardrobe free.

And finally, here is the completed back wall of my room. It looks like a lot of stuff, but its not really! I'm trying to convince myself!!! So when I am creating something, I am standing with my back to this wall, so everything is in arms reach. Perfect! No more digging into boxes, not using the right embellishment, because I couldn't find it. No more double purchases!

Well! Thanks for putting up with my ranting about my craft room.
Hopefully the next post will include a project or two!
Oh, and in case you are wondering! I have a tiny room. Its about 4 meters square. And there is heaps more to show you in later posts.

Craft Room Makeover - Part 4

Yes! I am still sorting out my craft room. Here is what I did this morning. 
I stacked all of my MOST USED stamps in my shelves. I am a visual crafter, so I need to see what I have. It also saves me a lot of money, as I have a few duplicates!!!

Here is the top section. AND here is the bottom Embellishment section.
I made this unit quite a while ago now, and it has been the best thing I have made.

Apart from the tins, covered with designer paper. the jars an containers came from Target. I am loving the chalkboard labels.

Here it is all together! Very handy item, I must say!

Here is a close up of the embellishment section!
Buttons, ribbons, pencils, Roller stamp, and my chook!
