Turning 1!

Happy 1 Year!!! I'm guessing my blog has been around for a year now seems I signed up to Stampin Up! just over a year ago. So I figured the title was appropriate for 2 reasons. One for blog anniversary and secondly because my little girl Eryn was invited to her playdate buddy's 1 year old party this past weekend. I was excited to go.... I even made the b-day card in advance... but sadly on the morning of the party I had to sit in a Doctors office :{ The upside was seeing my hubby take his little gal in her party dress to the party... How cute is that?

Isn't she cute!! I couldn't get her to sit still for a good photo ;} ahwell... such is life with kids & animals eh?

Here's the card I made for the 1 year old party! so girlie eh? brown & pink!!!!

Can you see the sparkly glitter...and the Stampin Dimensionals I used for the mane! ;P

Don't forget to decorate the inside of the card... I also did the envelope but forgot to take a photo of it..

That's all now..

Organisation Cubes...

So... a while ago I was asked by another SU! Demo lady "Marie" if I minded my craft cube configuration photos could be posted on a Crafty Storage Blog. Of course I didn't mind :) hubby always says I spend more time organising my crafts than actually doing crafts. I laugh it off... but really I know he's right on the money.

Here's my original post and here's a photo of my crafty storage space!

So.. I decided to take some more close ups of my set-up... just incase you were curious... plus I've found that since my photos appeared on the Crafty storage blog I've had lots of traffic from all over the world :P so why not add some more.

These red storage bins can be found at the large build it yourself Swedish store :} as you can see I can easily store my stamp sets in them. I only have one red box full...and as soon as it gets full I sell some of the stamps so I don't go crazy :} I also keep all of my stamp pads/inks in another red box... you can even use it to hang 12x12 file folders, I use mine on my desktop to hold all my 12x12 cardstock & DSP.

This cube space has a few of those magazine holders in them.... I keep all my Stampin Success Demo magazines in them and any tutorials I've found on the web and want to try out... trust me... there's loads.

These boxes can also be found at the Swedish store... and thankfully it comes in my fav colour - RED! As you can see I have all my ribbon in the brown box..and an adhesives, envelopes, blades & glitter in the other boxes. It's such an easy way to retrieve the items you need fast especially if your holding a craft/stamping party or stamping alone.

That's it for now... I'll post a few cards during the week...seems I have made a few...and I still have a few more to make this weekend. Happy Crafting!!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Happy Valentine's Day to all my friends ;}'s the card I made for my hubby... I'll give it to him in the morning. My man has been a gem... He dropped off flowers on Friday for me... then we went out Friday night for a surprise dinner at the Merlot revolving restaurant. It was soooo nice. 2hrs of total adult bliss. Today we spent the day with my in-laws from Kingston... it was a lovely day. Lots of family fun.... and lots of dancing to MJ & Gaga... it's so cute seeing your 2 year old dance & jiggy!!!! ;}

Sneak Peak! Valentines Day Card for my Hubby

So last night I sat down for the first time in a few weeks and decided to craft... actually... that's a little lie... I made a card last week for my friend Nicol on the fly!!... but I forgot to take a picture of it. If I'm lucky... I may be able to ask her to pull it outta the bin and take a photo of it. Only kidding?!@?. I'm sure she has it framed on her wall by now. So..back to last night.. I decided seems the hubby & I are going out on Friday for an early Valentine's day dinner... I would try and make my card for him in advance. Here's a sneak peak of the card.. I'll publish the final look tomorrow/Friday because I think my hubby has my blog on his google he might see it before I get to give it to him.

I used a PPA17 sketch seems lately my card designs are all starting to look the same ;} It's an old sketch but one I haven't tried before.

Definitely Decorative - Love Nest

I decided a few weeks back that I was going to get my bedroom looking like the love-nest ;} it used to be. I always believe that your bedroom should be a haven.... but recently I haven't been feeling it. You see....last May I decided to re-paint the red on my one wall...(it wasn't red enough) and swap out a Queen bed for a King bed. I LOVE my bed!!!!!... and I love the new red... but I kept telling myself that I would only put pictures back on my wall once I put up my decor elements. Hmmm... well 8mths later I finally put up the decor elements. What took me so long??? well... I think I was over thinking it as usual... and wanted to wait until I had a bed frame/headboard before committing. Finally a few weeks back I knew I'd probably be giving a house I finally did it in a flash. I think it only took me 30mins in total. Not bad... Check out my finished product!

Contact me if you want to look over the Definitely Decorative catty or even book a party with me
