- This room is only 9ft by 6ft
- It used to be Evan's Nursery so hence the lilac and turquoise!!!
- I do all my wedding orders from in here so I have a LOT of stuff for a very small space
Ok then, here goes!!! This is my Stampin Up area!!! My drawers and caddy are sat on a cupboard which is built in and we used to use this area as a "changing" area for Evan!!! Most of my stamp sets are in the plastic drawers from Asda. The others than won't fit in are on the shelf above. In my really useful boxes are my wheels and various ribbons. As you can see I have the Ink Caddy and the Embellishment caddy!
OK, here is the mess!!!!!! This is my desk (obviously!!!) It is from Ikea, the shelf bit clamps onto the actual desk. In the middle section I have my Stampin Up card and bits and bobs in the spotty boxes. To the left (above my laptop) are some very useful card storage holders on which my card for my weddings rests. To the left of that is a large Ikea bookcase with loads of bits and bobs on it!!! As you can see the window sill doesnt escape!!! It has all Ikea little tubs with various things in!!!

Papers are Stampin Up Sweet Always (I love them so much!!!) and I have scalloped the edge of the papers. The image has been backed with Chocolate Chip designer papers. I have added some choc chip ribbon and stamped the sentiment with the Circle of Friendship set, layered up with the circle and scallop circle punches
The image has been coloured in with the Stampin Up ink pads, I am loving this technique. Creamy Caramel button with linen thread tied through to finish it off!
Hope you have had a good weekend.

Here are the cards we made, first one is a DL size, I did this size on purpose as I always opt for square cards so thought I would go long!!!!
Next up is a Cupcake shaped card covered in Sweet Always papers and then I have concertined the paper to make like a bun case at the bottom, A rhinestone brad holds the sentiment in place.
Next up is a desktop calendar. I got the style of the calendar from my upline Monica when she initally used the truck from Loads of Love, I thought a cupcake would look fab on the end so adapted it. The flower is stamped with the Sale A Bration set Polka Dot Punches and punched out with the 5 petal flower punch
I had a prize draw and gave away a Polka Dot Punch stamp set tied up with gorgeous Choc Chip Double Stitched grosgrain!! The lovely Diane won it and she was so chuffed bless her!!

For the embellishments I have used some Choc Chip ribbon, a jewelled brad and a flower from the Pretties Kit, again all by Stampin Up.

The card above had Sentiment from Sincere Salutations and I have used the Scallop Edge punch.
The last one incorporates the gorgeous flourish from the Yummy set again along with the With Love sentiment.
