Here are a few more pictures showing a little more detail.

Latest additions to my craft space

Here are the latest additions to my craft space.  My husband surprised me with these three pictures.  He knew I would absolutely love them!  Nothing is more important to me than my faith and of course that picture  had to be the one higher than the rest.  ;)

I had bought 4 of these cube units from Michael's on clearance.  I was originally going to return this one......and my sister told me not to and now I am glad I didn't.  I placed in sideways next to my craft table and placed my laptop on it.  Now I won't have to bring out a small folding table out when I want to use my laptop for the Cricut Design Studio or SCAL.  With this right next to me.....I will probably use the two programs even more now. 

It is nice because I can keep my magazines closer to me when I need inspiration.  (I moved my magazines from the other cube units I have on the opposite wall.)  I also keep my giraffe bag handy with all my most used tools too!  I hate this really helps me keep everything in order and in it's place! 

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!!

We've Moved! Card

I wanted to make We've Moved cards and mail them out to my friends and family........but this past month has been busy!  Hard to believe we have been in our new home for a month now!   I figured I would at least make one for now and post it and then I can mass produce them once I have the first one made.  So here it is......

I used the Houses4Us stamp set from The Stamps of Life.  I really love the stamps and am a club member.

The supplies I used  are below.  I also used pre-made white cards I bought at Michael's and a standard black ink pad to stamp the images.  I really like The Green Stack by DCWV, the prints are just so cute!   I used my distressing tool for the tan card stock in the back as well as the DCWV printed card stock.  I used the Color Box Chalk in dark brown on the back piece of card stock as well as the "We've Moved" circle.  I cut out the house, fence and tree and used a pop dot for the tree and the "We've Moved".   The green strip, I finally used my Cuttlebug.  (I don't remember which embossing folder it was that I used.)

These are all of Copic markers I used to color all of the stamped images.

Thanks for looking!  Hope you liked my card!

My New Favorite Stamp Cleaner

I finally used my Stampin' Scrub that I purchased from Stampin' Up!  Why did it take me so long.....(about 4 months) to use it!  It's the best thing since sliced bread!!

The stampin' scrub works with the stampin' mist cleaner.

You have to rinse the stampin' scrub before your first use and then pat it dry.  Then spray the mist a couple times on the bottom part of the scrub and then it's ready to use.

Once you have used your stamp......wipe it on the bottom part where you sprayed the mist and then dry the stamp on the top part.  And the great thing about it is that after you have used it up and it's can wash it and start with a new clean scrub!

I love it!

Happy Crafting!!
