Tuesday already and time for a sketch this week at Bearly Mine designed by Maria. And I thought as I have now finished tidying my craft room, I'll give you a sneak peek but don't look at the decor. This is the last room on the agenda, so just imagine wooden flooring and nicely painted walls and probably a blind, lol. Enough waffling and onto my card.
I was meant to have a "Happy Mother's Day" tag popping out the right hand panel but I stuck the panel down forgetting completely about my tag, lol.
Thought I'd just show you a close up of the flowers and fabulous chipboard swirls, link below.
The beautiful papers are one of my favourites at the moment at Bearly Mine Designs, this is the Vintage Lace. I have also used this on my post on Saturday, so scroll down if you want another peek. I also photographed this card on the Easel so you can see that beautiful lacey edge.
Now onto my foamboard copic storage, which I orginally saw on Donna's (Bearly Mine) blog.
I'm really pleased with it and it's quite sturdy too.
I made this one first but wasn't happy with the edges as I used my craft knife so thought I'd make a slightly bigger one so this one became my acrylic paint, puff paint, liquid pearl storage, plus there's space for more.
Don't know about you but I had a storage box overfilled with different coloured odds and ends that just never got used, so I made a 12x12 foamboard unit and separated the colours and I have to say that for the last 6 cards I have used I have reached for the odds and ends and haven't cut a new 12x12 piece of bazil cardstock. Aren't I a good girl!
My nice tidy room inspired by Elaine from A Technophobes Blog, thank's Elaine, I do feel much better.
My new copic/distress ink/prisma pencil storage sat nicely on the desk and the 12x12 under the desk to the side. As it's bits and pieces it's still messy in my book.
The drawers to the right are see through and I don't like looking at what's inside as again it looks messy, so I have slotted paper in with the contents listed on the outside. The boxes on the shelfs, contains ribbons, cardstock, stamping cardstock, Sizzix Dies and all my Stamps in CD cases.
This is the wall behind me. I have a unit housing wood back stamps, but not many, paper and 12x12 bazill cardstock. My printer on top and my sewing machine on hand.
And hubby put up the final piece in my tidy up today, my magnetic boards filled with Marianne, Magnolia and Nesties. Absolutely love this, and guess what, there's room for more, lol.
And lastly, this is the back of the door. Housed with a shoe hanger containing all my cricut cartridges.
I have to say it's so lovely crafting in a tidy room, where everything has a place!
