My Stamping Zone/Storage

Here is a look at my stamping zone and how I store all my goods.

These storage cubes are from Michael's, they contain my paper, ink, punches, embossing folders, embossing glitter, flock, martha glitter, stickles and a lot more. The pink boxes underneath the craft disk are the Martha Stewart craft boxes from Michael's and they contain most my finished cards.

These 12x12 plastic drawers were purchase at Joann's and they contain all of my stamps, which I try to keep organized by theme, but we all know once we get to stamping everything becomes a mess.

This smaller plastic drawer container contains all of my copics, marvy markers, prisma colored pencils and my gel roll Sakura pens. I purchased it at Big Lots, I thought I got a really good deal on it, it was on $3.

A lot of crafters have done this and I thought it was a great idea so I went to Ikea and purchased a towel rack and placed some of my punches on it. Great storage idea!! My ribbon is on a dowel and I believe is a towel hanger, it a "C" shaped wall mount which is the right size for the ribbon, purchased at Home Depot.

This shelf is also from Ikea, and I thought is was just perfect for my jars of flowers.

This idea I got from Jillian Winters, another great storage idea! Empty CD cases with my nestabilities and my clear stamps in them.

The table part of my craft desk was again a purchase from Ikea, $7 for a piece of white wood that amazingly fit just perfectly with my storage cubes, I was so excited, I didn't have to do any cutting to make it fit just right. And of coarse I have covered it with scratch paper so that I don't stamp all over it.

And lastly a colored picture of my craft zone.

Enjoy and fill free to leave me your comments and have a fun and safe Labor Day weekend!!!

Its been a while

Feels like forever since I last made a card, but I'm back in the game. I was taking summer school out of town so I was at my parents house for more than 6 weeks and I moved from apartment to apartment so my room isn't quite set up yet but I had to get started on my card making. My birthday was on July 27th so I had to make some thank you cards, this strawberry basket being one of them. I saw this card on a blog called Outside The Lines by Linsey Rickett and I had to make it for my neighbor who knows that I absolutely love love love strawberry's and all summer long she brought my family and I strawberry's and then on my birthday she brought me some more even though they were already starting the be out of season but they were still delicious, so i thought this card would be appropriate for thanking her for her sweet gift. Enjoy, and there will be more to come.
