Altered Letter

Today I would like to share a project with you that I started a while ago. I finally finished it. I could not figure out what to do with it because the paper is so pretty that it did not need a lot of embellishing. I really enjoyed finishing this project. I have so many projects in mind that it is very overwhelming to my brain. I even started another project today.(I didn't complete it but I will before weeks end.) Without talking anymore about the incomplete project let me show you the completed project. I covered the entire letter except for the back. I used black soot around the edges.

Thursday's Card

Today, was not as bad as I thought it would be after being off for 10 days. I got up at 6am instead of my normal 5:45am the extra 15 minutes were worth it. My mind started going around 10am (I had already been at work for 3 hrs...LOL)My day was a good day I must say. One down and 2 more to go. Hopefully, those 2 days will be stress free days. Now to my completed card for today. I made this card using some of the left over cardstock from yesterdays project. I like the way it turned out. Simple and cute.

Anywho that's enough rambling, I have some handmade cards made by my family (at my request) to share with you all. Please keep in mind that none of them are card makers or crafters. So beware...LOL...

Card #1

This is Ryan a gretting farm stamp. I am practicing my copic coloring.
I used recollections white card stock for my base
I'm not sure what name the blue, yellow and red card stocks are I got them from my scraps.
The white cut out is a spellbinders die

Card #2

Ryan again
Card base is recollections
Mat was from my scraps (single sheet of DCWV I think)
Ribbon from Papertrey Ink
Blue Pieces were also from scraps (i'm trying to also use up my scraps)
Brown mat with Ryan attached is recollections cut out with another spellbinders die.

Thanks for stopping by.

Craft room completed (for now)

Hello all, I am finished the major parts of my craftroom. Everything has a home, I didn't realize that I had accumulated so much stuff over the years. Now, I just have to embellish it to my liking. I still have some things that need to be painted. (I will get to it soon) I am on vacation next week so I will definitely be doing more things in my room. I will also post a video of the completed completed (yes I meant completed completed) room, so until then I will just be showing pictures of my progress. At least now I can come in here and start letting my creative juices flow. I work better when my room is in order. Now, I can post a project a day and join in on some of these awesome challenges that are going on and complete some of my own personal challenges such as; learning my gypsy, using my cricut cartridges and practicing my copic coloring.

Here are a few pics of my room now.

Here is my island, I still have to paint the top and get a piece of plexi glass to cover it and purchase 6 more jetmax cubes.

Here is my cutting station I finally took my gypsy and expression 2 out of the box.

This is my main work station. I still have to put a piece of plexi glass on this desk top too.

As always stay inspired!
