SaintsRule! Scrappin Corner

This week I have been stuck at home sick. Yuck! My doctor ordered me to stay in until the first of the week. Anyone who knows me, realizes just how nuts this makes me. I have been too sick to scrap. I think I have turned a corner, thankfully! In the meantime, I thought I would share some photos of my scrappin area! It is definitely a work in process. But I love it! Hope you have a great day!

First, an overall view of my table and pegboard. I am blessed to have a large guest room on the second floor of my house. This half of the room is dedicated to my crafting! I repurposed our old kitchen table. My hubby recently purchased the office chair to help with my back pain while I am crafting!



Second, a view of the storage area to the left of my table. Here I have some JetMax cubes from Michael's and Target. I love this area and hope to add more cubes in the future. I also have a black paper rack with patterned paper divided into themes. For example, I categorize things like birthday, Christmas, Fall and file them accordingly. This rack has a cover I can put over it when not in use to keep my paper clean!



My favorite photo of Morgan sits on my desk for inspiration! You may have seen her baby photo on the Cricut messageboard. She is my avatar!



On the right side of my table I have stored my collection of stamps in Jewel cases. I have them categorized for easy access!




Directly to the right of my table is my Cricut station. I have repurposed a corkboard and categorized my ribbon in ROY G. BIV order! Wood mounted stamps are stored in the desk drawers.



I have all of my punches stored in a shoe caddy hanging behind the door. It is in easy proximity to my Cricut in case of a punching emergency!




And finally my next project is to organize my pitiful stash of scraps! Ideas are welcome! Thanks for looking!

Birthday Blessings - Farm Theme



Fall on the farm means harvest time. In this part of Kentucky that means the hay is baled and the tobacco is hanging in the barn. The evenings are getting longer and the temperature is getting lower. There is a slight breather for those of us who make our living off of the land... very brief. Soon it will be time to take down and strip tobacco. Farming is a 24-7, 356 day a year job. But there is none like it! I am sending this birthday card to my daughter-in-law who recently moved with my step-son to Missouri. I hope it reminds her of home and how much she is loved and missed! Hope you have a great day!

Signs of Autumn



Recently I posted a card using the Gina K Designs Signs of Autumn stamp collection. I love stamps but I am terribly guilty of purchasing a stamp and only utilizing it once. I love the pumpkin stamp in this set so much I decided to challenge myself to use the same stamp several different ways. The first post I used the cracked glass technique that Gina K posted on StampTV. This time I put my own spin on a card using the same stamp. I also forced myself to use some very old supplies. I literally had to knock the dust off of my Creative Memories Punch... LOL... Challenge yourself to re-purpose things you have in your scrappin stash for new projects. I think it is the best way to re-awaken your creativity! Enjoy!
