My Craft Space re-visited

Hello my crafty friends, welcome back.

Today I share a photo of my craft space, and I am linking up to MFW's Creative Spaces Link Party: Show Me Your Desk.  Teri wants to see our craft space, messy or not.  So here goes:

Yup this is where I crank out cards for my friends and family, and on occasion a card or two for challenges.  But mostly this is where I read the blogs I follow and admire the handy works of many talented artists and procrastinate about my own take.    :)  

You'll notice I put "re-visited" in the title.  My DH gave me craft space a micro make over - replaced the credenza (my main storage as seen in photo below) with tables and added a computer desk.

Now I have extra storage space.  The credenza is in the same room with easy access.

Thanks for visiting and have a lovely day.

Virginia's View Challenge #4 - entry four


Just want to share scrapling I want to link up to Virginia's View Challenge #4 - Tags or Scraplings.  Made it with a few pieces from the scrap pile.  The gingham belt sticker was from over 5 year ago!!  The other pieces I used as indicated by an arrow in the photo below are left over of a coffee cup sleeve (this is my recycle item), that info strip from the 12x12 PP.  The flower die is by Hero Arts and I used it on the coffee cup sleeve.  And no the die is not from the scrap and it's much treasured item!!  ;)

Photo of my scrap:

I added faux stitches to match the sticker and some gems to the flower and voila!!  Uh oh didn't stamp on it!  Still qualify?! :)

Thanks for stopping by.

Virginia's View Challenge #4 - entry two

Hi, welcome back!

Before I share my project, I have a question for you.  What do you call the half inch strip of paper that you trim off from a sheet of 12x12 pattern paper that have the barcode and/or the collection/brand/company info?

Sometimes there's useful pattern on one side.  And that's what I used for my scrapling today.   As seen in my little scrap tray, the alphabet pieces are from that strip I trimmed off from a sheet of the Check In Collection (KaiserCraft).  The other supplies includes a piece of kraft cs left over from a project that didn't work out, some tags, a rejected embossed butterfly and a tiny piece of ribbon.

So here's my project (finished size: 4 1/4 x 1 1/4, not measuring the tabs):

I'd like to link up to Virginia's View Challenge # 4 - Tags or Scrapling.

Virginia's View Challenge #4 - entry one

Hi I am so excited about my project today I can't wait any longer so I am posting in the middle of a work day!!!  :)

For Virginia's View Challenge #4 - Tag and Scrapling, we are to make it green meaning to incoroperate recycle item(s).

I made a tag card using part of some packaging boxes, a used dryer sheet, and a piece of scrapling (left over after I cut a square card out of a 5 x 7 card) indicated by the arrow photo below.

And here's the result:


Here's how I used the recycle/reuse items.  I dye the dryer sheet using distress ink, let dry then cut into flower shapes.  Crumble to give it some texture and secure with a white brad (which double as flower center).  I fussy cut the leaves from the boxes (I really like that green!).  The ribbon is left over from another project too!  Btw, I added "entry one" to the post title, cause I am planning to create more!  Won't you join in the fun too!?  Go check out Virginia's View Challenge blog.
