***Giveaway Alert***

Good afternoon my Fellow Creative Crafters.  Sorry I haven't been posting much lately but my DT stuff.  I have been super busy trying to organize my craftroom, it's getting there I am hoping to finish it by the end of this week so I can go back to my normal routine of things.

In the meantime, I found my Scrap n' Tote.  Now I bought this when it first came out so it's the green one.  I tried it for a day or 2 but living in the apartment well even now I just found it way to bulky for my taste. So instead of tossing it out, I'm sure one of my fellow creative crafters would just like to win it.  They still sell for $79 when it's on sale.

Here is what it looks like and just click here for more info:

Now to win this all you have to do is link in your Craftroom or Organization tip below.  You have until March 2nd 12midnight, cst. Sorry I will not ship International.

What's on my Workdesk Wednesday aka WOYWW

Hello Everyone, I found this website called Stamping Ground that ask you to link up your work area, space or wherever you work at doing your craftiness.  So for the First Time ever, I will show you where I am working at now and when I will be working on soon, once hubby gets it all fixed and organized for me :}

Right now I am on the kitchen island of the house:

Here is my soon to be craft room which was the formal dining room it is 10 x 10
Here is the lights hubby got me at Ikea

Any organizational advice would be GREATLY appreciated.  Hubby wants it so everything is hidden but I really don't like the Scrapbox.  I am thinking more of Built in or just my Expedit from Ikea but I still can't decided.

St. Patrick's Day

Hello Everyone!

Well I wanted to mix it up a bit.  I am a tad behind on scrapbooking so I think once I really get settled in my craft space I will dedicate once a week a scrapbook LO.  But in the meantime here is one I made last year for my then 3 month old now running around 1 year old.  

Okay so here is my LO
12 x 12 LO
I know the stickers are from K and Co
I have no idea which cartridge I used for the the cuts
I also used my PKS faces on the clovers of course
I got that shirt at Walmart before he was even born I though it was so cute

Come back tomorrow maybe just maybe I might show a picture of where I am creating right now and where my future craft room will be!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone is having or will be having a wonderful Valentine's Day!  Me, well with 4 kids and no sitter we pretty much don't do much, but we did celebrate yesterday by hubby taking the day off and that is gift enough for me.

Anywhoo, this project put it this way I wanted it to turn out like something else but since I was in a rush and still couldn't not find some of my "My Creative Time Dies" and my Cricut Mat and My Gypsy plug well you get where I am going right, LOL!

This is what I made I still like it but I just wish I could have done more.  I made 21 of these babies and thanks to Emma's Lollipop Holder die I think I would have been lost.  BTW, have you been checking out the Sneaky Peeks over at My Creative Time - I am LOVIN' it yet again.  I swear that Chika is Super TALENTED.

I am also super bummed that I couldn't make any more projects using my Peachy Keen January 2012 Stamp Kit, because it is so CUTE! Seriously if you are thinking about joining the Stamp Kit Club, join it I think it is just TOTALLY WORTH IT.  I just got the February and it is ADORABLE can't wait to create with it.

Okay enough chatter here is my project:
Here are the Lollipop Holders, I used Darice hearts embossing folder to emboss my holders in and then I used my spellbinders to cut the circle to stamp my cute PKS Faces on them.  I just colored the tongue and eyelids with some copics and added some chalking for the blush.

For the cards, they are 3 x 3
My Creative Time Stamps Used:
Gift Card Sentiments on the inside for my To: and From: (sorry forgot to take a picture of that one)
