Craft room makeover and a card

Hi all
Well I am now a official empty nester after our youngest son moved out to live with his girlfriend. And as sadly I lost my beloved Sam at the end of June you an imagine how quiet and tidy the house is!
This is one of the last photos taken of Sam and Peter. Sam always liked to sit up, we think he thought he was one of the boys :-)

Anyway I have spent the last week painting his room to be the new guest room as luckily all the boys keep popping back and this led me to finally properly sorting out my craft room.
These are some before photos

So not too bad as I am a tidy crafter but also not matching as I have built my collection of free storage over the years. So on Thursday it was a trip to Ikea

Which then lead to this

Along with a matching work top to follow on from the oak unit I already had

Filled up with red and black boxes and drawers and all labelled

So I know have a bigger desk, matching storage and a guest room!
And this is the card I made just before I moved everything around

Ingredients used -
Mama Elephant 'Birthday wishes' stamps for sentiments
Lawn Fawn 'stitched circles' die
Glitter card from stash
Docrafts - gems

Having a crafty day with friends today and then will be catching up with your blogs x

MISTI Stamping tool and cards

Hi all,well the weather outside isn't very nice at the moment so I think a day of crafting is in order. One of my best craft purchases has to be the MISTI stamping tool and it's earned its cost loads over.

No more mistamping, perfect alignment and excellent for mass production.
I purchased mine from My Sweet Petunia and the two week wait for delivery from America was worth it though shame about the customs charge!

Ingredients used -

MFT 'Some-bunny loves you' stamp set & coloured with copics
Lawn Fawn 'Polka Mon Amie' design paper.
Spellbinder oval and scallop nesties
Kort & Godt pearls

Well I think my hubby is certainly giving me a challenge at the moment lol.
I have been getting him to pick out a card from my stamp index ( latest organisation project ) before he goes to work and then I make a card using the stamp set on it.
This is the stamp he choose which was a freebie from the magazine Craft Stamper.

And this is the finished card using the offending roaster!

Ingredients used -

Craft Stamper freebie stamp
Lawn Fawn - Polka Mon Amie design paper
Mama Elephant - 'Birthday wishes' for the sentiment
Woodware punch - leaves
Stampin up punch - label
Kraft card, flowers and gems from stash

Wonder what he will choose next!

Get well soon

Hi all, well so far so good, am blogging another card I made yesterday. Hope this will last when I go back to work after my holidays. So I had a urge to use my new MFT interactive stitched windows die and along with a stamp set chosen by my hubby came up with this. Used my beloved Misti to help with the placement of stamps ( love this tool ) and voila one card :-)

Ingredients used -

MFT interactive stitched windows die
Lawn Fawn - 'get well soon' stamp set and coloured with copics
MFT blueprints 13 for stitched frame
Distress ink - festive berries
Card and twine from stash

Up and running, I hope ;-)

Hi all, well thought it was time to dust of the old blog and start using it again. I have been peeking at my blog feed to keep a eye on you all every now and then but time has been a bit of a precious commodity lately.
I have still been crafting when I can and will upload my creations if I still have the photos but for now this is a card I made this morning to encourage my buddies in a Facebook group to kick start their mojo. I have followed a sketch from here

Ingredients used -
Penny Black 'Uplifting occasion' stamped in memento and coloured with copics.
Dovecraft - 'Tea house' paper to paper piece the underwear
Annamarie designs - spotty card
Ek Success - butterfly layering punch
Lil inker Designs - 'Snarky lady' stamp set for sentiment
