Craft Area Wish List


So while I was out shopping with the girls today, I picked up a magazine for which I have patiently been waiting.  Creative Spaces by Creating Keepsakes.  I love looking at the craft areas of other artists and this magazine definitely delivers.  Right now, I just have a corner of my living room to create in, but someday I hope to have one whole room designated to my passion.  I fell in love with so many areas that I saw in this magazine and found a lot of creative storage ideas as well.  It even features the craft rooms of SU! co-founder Shelli Gardner and her daughter Sara. 

Thanks to my day job, I will shortly be receiving a $100 gift card for Pottery Barn and here are 2 items that I have had on my wish list for a while.  The top cubby I spotted on one of my favorite stamping blogs, and the 3 tier rack on the bottom is actually featured in the magazine mentioned above.  Now to choose....what do you think?

MIA again!

Hello friends!  Just wanted to check in and tell you that I am still alive....LOL.  I have actually been enjoying life and taking time to stop and smell the roses...and they smell great!  I will be busy this week stampin' up new creations for you, so be patient with me.  Talk to you soon!

Decorator Label Magnets!


So, as soon as I saw these adorable magnets on Stampin' Connection (SU demo only web site), I just knew I would have to recreate them.  So on Saturday night, my friend Diane and I hung out and stamped the night away.  I made a ton of these for Vintage Market and one set for myself.  I got this fabulous idea from a fellow demo, Cheryl Garratt.  So easy to make!  The color combo is Blushing Bride, Baja Breeze, River Rock and Soft Suede.  We used Early Espresso and Soft Suede ink and of course the Decorator Label Punch to punch them out.  We then used the Beautiful Wings Embosslet for the Big Shot as well as the Boho Blossoms Punch, leaves from the Bird on a Branch Punch and of course a ton of adhesive pearls.  The words are from one of my favorite sentiment sets: Fabulous Phrases.  Just glued some magnets on the back with Crystal Effects and they were ready to go!

Here are a few close ups for you:
