Finally! My new space.

Finally have a real space for all my crafting! My craft space ended up being the last room to be unpacked and organized but its finally done and I'm in love!

Here's some photo's.

"Christina's creative corner"

The shelving DH put up for me, and you can see part of the paper rack I made with the wire cube racks.

the other side, I'm going to get another embellishment center to put where that whole is on the wall.

A close up of my inspirational area, filled with cards from my cricut sisters. Look how nicely my stickles storage fits under the just have to order another insert for the rest of them.

Paint Can's

Back in Aug, I hosted a pick your theme paint can swap and two of the women in the group sent cans but never received cans so I asked the other girls in the swap to help me put together a couple of cans and they did such a great job, both cans were bulging full of goodies.

Here are the cans I decorated for them:

Beach theme - I used LAB and the font is from SCAL

Bird theme - I did all the cuts with SCAL

A wonderful RAK package.

A few weeks ago I won on of our NSSS motivational Raks. Jen sent me such a great package. I love all the stamps and I can't wait to play with the piercing bugs, I've been wanting to try them for awhile.

Here is a photo of all the great things Jen sent.

Wedding gift

For our friends wedding I made them this picture frame.

Tri fold card's

I've been seeing tons of great tri-fold cards and wanted to give them a shot. I love them, there so easy but look amazing.

I did one to go with the baby gift and one for the wedding gift.

The couples wedding colors are black and purple.

The baby card

A second photo.

Baby gifts

I've been dieing to try the freezer paper t-shirts, I thought I would do some fun baby gifts for my BFF and a co-worker that just had a baby. Instead of the paper I used vinyl.

The imgs are from NA and PDDU. All the fonts I cut using SCAL.

I did 2 set of onesies but had to take one set to work before I could take photo's of them.

Some fun bibs.

Christmas Cards

I wanted to get a jump start on my cards this yr so I made 2 similar designs. The snowman and penguin are both SCAL cuts that I got from my favorite site, The tag I cut from PS

Halloween Prank

One of my co-workers likes to play pranks on all of us, so my office mate and I decided it was time to get we've been plotting for the last few months and decided we would decorate his office for Halloween for him. We hit the dollar store and bought tons of goodies and then the other week we snuck in his office after he left and decked it all out...He was shocked and loved it.

Here's a close up of his desk...hard to get all the details but there are spiders, mice, candy corn, Halloween confetti, Lights and a bunch of other scary Halloween items all over his desk.

It was so much fun, there are so many other little details that I didn't get in the pic's but it was a blast.

Yeah NEW storage!!!

I've been looking for a better way to store all my writing tools. I had my makers and pens mixed in one container and then my bic's and pencils in their boxes. I HATED it I was so sick of digging to find the pen/marker I wanted and I was always spilling the whole box of pencils.

I found these clip boxes at target and thought they might work so I bought a few and I loved them so I bought a few more. I still want to get a few more for some of my other goodies. I had fun labeling them all with vinyl. I used SCAL for all the different fonts, which was perfect because I was able to cut all 6 at once. I had such fun that I also labeled my boxes of ribbon.

sympathy cards

The 4 cards I made. I had fun using my new stampin up punches.

Get Well Cards

I used SCAL for the bear in bed. The cut file is from:
