Happy Friday everyone! I'm so glad it's the weekend and it's going to be cooler, YAY! This week I have been organizing my "new" craft room. That is, I turned my dining room into my craft room. I'll tell you about it and share photos after I show my card.
During Stampin' Up's recent 60% off sale, I went hog wild. (That's a southern term for all you yankees :) I bought a bunch of DSP, ribbon, and buttons. There was a pack of DSP called Haiku and I fell in love with it. It had to be older than Summer 2009, because that's when I started using Stampin' Up and it wasn't in the big catalog. Needless to say, it is still beautiful paper. The piece I used on this card yelled for Asian Artistry. At least I thought so. What do you think?
I thought the flower in the middle of the paper looked almost identical to this flower. Or, at least, a close cousin. The Asian Artistry set is one of my favorites. Here is my recipe:
Stamps: Asian Artistry
Paper: Haiku DSP, Old Olive, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Black
Ink: * Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Wild Wasabi,
Dusty Durango, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
* all of the above colors were from Stampin' Up Markers
Other: Black Stazon, watercolor paper, stampin' dimensionals
So about that craft room.... It used to be in my basement, which is unfinished, can we say YUK! It was dusty, dark and way far away from the rest of the house. So, we have this big ol' dining room that no one ever uses. I discussed it with my husband, and he thought it was a great idea to move my craft "stuff" there. On one condition..... the back wall had to stay the same. Here is the back wall: (Two views)
Organize More. This one holds 80 ink pads. I really like their products. I bought a ribbon holder. It is currently holding punches. See below picture!
Well, that's the "renovation" for right now. I am in the process of unmounting my stamps and I am storing them in 6 x 9 envelopes. I got that idea from Split Coast Stampers. That will save a lot of room! I'll show photos when that project is finished.
Whew! That's it for me. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
