Autumn colours and more craft room.

Happy Saturday : ) it was such a warm and gorgeous day yesterday, right now mother nature is all doom and gloom out there. Perfect for a little time in the craft room.

I will create something new today but I am sharing a card that I made last week.

I was playing with clear embossing and a background stamp. Then I used my distress markers for a little watercolour fun. I added in some copper flicks once everything was dry.

The sentiment is heat embossed then popped up. The card is for someone musical so I added a little die cut music note.

Supplies: White and kraft card stock, Hero Arts - Rings bold print, Clearly Besotted - Many Mini Messages, Poppy Die - Melody Music.

Continuing on... craft room part deux.

This is the mess that was the second bookshelf, paper pads of all sizes and misc items everything. This bookshelf was not well used, as in it was like the items stored there were in a black hole.

Zones (see mention in previous post) come into play here again as I reconfigured the new cabinets, this is where I store my 6x6 papers pads. Yes there are lots of them ;) I have an addiction. I have them mostly sorted by company. I also have some misc items and tools on the top 2 shelves.

Mid way, my cube ink pads. Cardstock, envelops and adhesive are next. I buy my adhesive, envelopes in bulk, same with the cardstock for my card bases.

This is a side view of that whole wall, my room is 10 by 10 but I lose area with a closet, window and the door.

Alex, (one of 5) stores from the top down.. Inks, Distress, mixed media, heat embossing, glitter, markers and watercolours. On top I have my over sized stamp packages, as well as my bin of The Stamps of Life stamps.

Until next time :). Enjoy your day.
