Quick Cases

It's been a tough couple of weeks without access to all my crafting bits and bobs but all will be well later this week as I slowly get everything back into the house from the greenhouse and start unpacking again!

I just loved this card of Amy's over at A Passion for Papertrey and had to give it a go - it came together real quick with just some versafine ink, aqua mist cs and some buttons and twine. Mine isn't as classy as Amy's but I like how it came out and good for what I needed it for.

Every time there is a new Papertrey release I have a good look through the DT's blog and see what I could make with stamps I already have. This card of Melissa Bickford's sang to me so I had a go with one of my background basics sets and came up with this - you can tell my PTI stamps and inks were the first thing I unpacked :) Simple but pretty!

So now I have a dinning area again - we got rid of this big old computer cabinet which we didn't need any more (it was never as clean and tidy as this until we came to sell it!) ...

and replaced it with this arrangement which DH put together. So much space for my crafty bits and we have a table clear now to eat off and lots of cuboards and drawers to hide everything away in.

One day I will have a craft room but until then this will suit me fine and dandy!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Wow, love the new cabinet! That's a huge amount of storage. You're going to need to buy some more stuff. Great cards, too!

Firstly, I LOVE your CASE of my lil' card - it's seriously classy! The shading you've added is fab (is that done with a Copic?!)
Your second card is truly pretty and bound to help anyone feel a little better!
Your cabinet looks like it's got some fab storage. I too would love a Craft Room *sigh* but I'd be more than happy with this!
