February 2011 Blog Hop

I made this card for The hop over at Paper Trey Ink that takes place today. Your card needed to have scallops, which I don't have a scallop die, so this is what I came up with. Hope you will join in on the fun!!
As you can see that I'm still enjoying all of my February release goodies, I think that this has been my favorite release since I joined in on the fun last February!

Just thinking of you!

I had a chance to play with the new release goodies and I love it all!! These button dies are wonderful, you get the button look without the bulk, not to mention the pretty designs!! The doilies are yummy too! I can see me getting allot of use out of this little $5.00 Flower Fusion set. Can't wait to see what is next in this new series!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!

Craft room make over

I finally made my first trip to Ikea a couple of weeks ago!! The first day after our little trip (5 hours round trip)our house looked like a cardboard jungle!! It was such a mess!!lol

This is what my main desk used to look like.
This is my new main desk area. Lots of room to make a mess now! :)
I love this big L shaped desk! It is from the Vika Amon collection.Why I only bought 2 pink chairs, I have no idea, gives me a reason for another trip I guess!
Next is my expidet, I thought that I bought all black boxes to put in it, but guess what, NOT! How can I put them in the cart, then out of the cart to get checked out, back in the cart, then into the truck, and not notice that their was a black and white striped band of paper wrapped around the bottom.AHHH! The funny thing is , as soon as I opened the door of the truck to get them out, I knew that I bought the wrong ones. Sooo... what to do? Make another 5 hour trip to get the right ones,( All of the stripes were just to much for my eyes)or just change the ones that I have. As you can see below, I decided to get myself a jar of modge podge and cover my boxes. I like how they turned out! I will probably buy a few solid black boxes on my next trip, and replace a few of the paper covered ones.
With the attached table, I now have a designated spot for my  Bigshot and sewing machine.

These rods that hold my punches are hidden behind the door, when open. I also love these bygel rods and these cute little pink containers. Puts all of my go to tools at my finger tips!

Above this window I think that I'll put some sort of quote, I just haven't decided what yet.
The area between the rods that hold my alcohol inks and stickles, and the expedit will hold a set of alex drawers.

These book shelves I already had in my room, they are from Target. I still need to tiddy these up abit. The stacked paper holders that you see on the other wall will go, and be replaced with another set of Alex drawers from Ikea.

PTI Anniversary...looking back

This month Papertrey Ink turns four...Happy Anniversary PTI!!
In celebrating four years, they asked their costumers to look back through their creations this year and pick out their favorite, using at least one PTI product. In making this card I used PTI Fancy Flourishes, Just the Ticket, and YOF Sweet Peas.

This was my first year with PTI, and 50 stamp sets later,I guess you can say that I am hooked!!
