Live from my Craft Room...

I have been asked on occasion to show my craft room.  Well, here it is in all of it's glory.  It is in a loft space and has a sky light.  I love it.  I put one of our recliners in the corner and DH can read while I am playing in my room.  

365 Cards Day 157 Challenge is Imagine This: Sunflowers!!!  Use Sunflowers to inspire your card.
I printed the text on my computer, the sunflowers are Quickutz and the paper is Basic Grey except for the parchment.
This card is for Challenge 63 at A Spoon Full of Sugar
The theme is Floral Fantasy...  Use something floral on your card.
The paper is Basic Grey's new Lemonade paper.  The sentiment is Beyond Postmarks and I used a Quickutz oval to highlight the word brighter because the red ink would not have shown up on the pink paper.
The gem flowers are Kaiser Craft, I think.
The "Flower Girl" is Lisa's Altered Art.  This is one I will be sending to Compassionate Cards!
Prima flowers, Basic Grey's June Bug Paper and more Lisa's Altered Art are used to execute the sketch provided from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  It's Party Time...
My DH and I have the Exact Same Initials!!!
This card is for Die Cuts R Us : Monogram It!!!
I used a scallop circle punch
The "H" is String Bean from Quickutz
The "K" and "A" are Chicken Noodle from Quickutz
The paper is Making Memories and Basic Grey.
Created by Hand
Animals or Pets is the Challenge today.
This is Maya, the dog we had to put down two weeks ago.  Two days before DH's birthday.   I decided to Scrapbook her with all the pictures we have.
The paper is June Bug, the Ribbon is Stampin' Up!  The letters are String Bean from Quickutz.
A sketch, and A Christmas theme!!!  
The paper is Wassail from Basic Grey
The stamps are from Stampendous!!!
The coloring was done with Copic Markers.
Midnight Madness had this wonderful sketch to play with today.
The paper is June Bug, the Images are Lisa's Altered Art.
The inside has an inkadinkadoo stamp...  "If you are blue, try painting yourself a different color".

Well, I hope no one is blue today, and if you are I hope you were made "un-blue" coming and visiting me today.

  33. What beautiful creations Kristen! Love your DCRU card, the colors are just so fun and beautiful together! Love your LO of your doggie, I'm a dog fan too! So sorry you had to put her to sleep. I had a doggie that was 16 yrs old, I'd had him since he was 6months and he passed in 2007. I created a special scrapbook just for him and it's one of my most cherished possessions!
    Hope to see you at next week's DCRU challenge:)
