My Craft Room

Welcome To My Craft Room!

This is my craft room. After our Son moved out we took his bedroom and our office and made it into my craft room!!
Thanks to my husband who is the jack of all trades. 
We lined the room with cabinets from Home Depot and added the Slot Wall (same stuff that they use in retail stores). 

My husband thought it looked nicer that peg board. We had to go to one of the Sacramento Home Depot (about 50 miles) to get the slot wall as they don’t sell it in our area. 
My stamps are in 2 large drawers next to where I set to stamp, (last photo). I find I use my punches so much more with them being right below the card stock instead of in a drawer. 
The card stock is in cabinets without the doors and we just added more shelf’s to fit all my paper. 
Most everything is close by, with the exception of my Accu-Cut die cutting machine which is in the closet so I could make room for my new printer that will print 12 x 12 card stock.  I am going to learn how to scrapbook digitally this year! Really….
I hope you enjoy the rest of these photos of my craft room!

Time to to down memory lane……..

I’ve not posted in a while. Tracey (my sister) and family have been visiting for a week and not much computer time. We did go through a whole container full of cards and things that she has made for me and my family over the years. It was fun to see the same patterns that we are using today, just different stamp sets. I found this box that I had been saving and thought it would be fun to go through together when she got here. These are just a few of the cards she has sent us over the last 8 years or so.

The cards on the right are from my Nieces, Emily and Caitlin. These are thank you cards they made usually after Christmas or their birthdays. I think they were surprised that I had kept them so long.  I hated to get rid of them, but I did end up putting them in the recycle bid…….

Decor’ Elements

Well you probably have heard all the fuss over Stampin’ Up’s new product line, drum roll please, Decor’ Elements. These are self-adhesive vinyl elements that you can put on your walls, mirrors, glass and I’m sure more. They will be available to our customers on July 1st and we can pre-order now. I just can’t decide which ones I need.  I’m leaning on the “Create” words and definition.  SU is offering 100 items now with more to come soon. Oh, and they come in 3 colors, white, brown and kraft. Wait till you see them, they are stunning. You will see, phrases, numbers, letters, flowers, flourishes and more. They are reasonable priced and we will have stamp sets to coordinate with some of the vinyl elements. I love when everything coordinates, takes the guess work out of what will work together and what won’t. So stay tuned as we learn more about this new product line.
