PCMB Challenge

Some ladies on the paper crafts message board posted a card a day challenge... This is my first contribution. I really like the brown and green. WOW... do I ever love the marvy flower punches. I have three punches now and use them all the time.
Sorry about the blurry pics.... I am still getting a hang of it.



Purse - Amy Butler Fabric

I thought I would share a couple of purses.... The rectangle multi fabric purse is my old one I had been carrying around for awhile. I decided to change it out for the spring floral pattern purse. I originally made it for my daughter but she said it was to small. I love how I can just pitch everything in it. The best thing is it washes well in the machine.

The spring floral is an Amy Butler pattern. The multi fabric purse is my own pattern. It is a perfect size and now that I have made enough of them it is quick and easy.

I original made this bag to carry file folders. I have adopted it for my papercrafts. TFL - Traci

Baylee's Book

I made this 6x6 book for my BFF daughter, Baylee. She is an amazing writer. I love the pink and black pirates. You may not see the sentiment is attached with pink rhinestones. Super Cute...

OOOOOOOPPS! Sorry not sure how to flip the picture. I am still new to most of this.

I found 2 sets of off-white cards... this is what I did with them. Now I have 16 generic cards to use. These were quick and easy. I love the flowers. TFL - Traci


With my new organized space I am going to try to use up current supplies on projects. Here are a couple of cards I had left from the misc pile of pattern paper. TFL - Traci

March Madness.... Basketball

Wow... I love March Madness. Tomorrow is going to be the best. I plan on sitting in my craft room watching basketball all day...... Well at least until 5:00. Then I have to go to a wedding. Enjoy your weekend.

Journal Stamp Card

My BFF, Tracy gave me the journal stamp. I used it with several other stamps. I love how the card turned out. No patterned paper just stamps. The flower was punched with red scraps.
This card was inspired by a card I saw in January 2008 (Volumne 3 Issue 1) of Cards magazine... page 143. The original designer is Diane DiTullio.

Paper Crafts Message Board Challenge

My Craft Room

It is official.... I have a craft space. The concrete floor is perfect.... messes sweep up and my dogs can craft with me.
I don't have the curtains done yet. The fabric is in the wash. I spent most my budget... so I plan on using fabric I purchased previously for something. Who knows what...
DH made the counter top space with the sewing machine, the cabinet, and the awesome workstation. The table the computer sits on is a table we had and I swiped.
Because of a tight budget the construction is mostly plywood and 2x4s. It works well for me because then I won't be afraid to mess it up.
The workstation is perfect for cutting fabric. I have a bar stool I sit on while using it. It is on casters so I can pull it out to get to all sides.
I'll try to post once I get the curtains finished. Hopefully, this afternoon.

Full Cabinet

Here is my cabinet full of goodies.

My cabinet

DH built me this cabinet. I can't wait to put my stuff in it. The side racks are for my loose stamps. There are also three paper holders. The bottom shelve is big enough to hold a big tube or 12x12 plastic drawers.

I am soooooooo happy with it. He did an amazing job.

Tractor Diaper Bag

The basement is still somewhat a mess but I had to finish this diaper bag for a co-worker. She had the baby early. Baby and Mommy are doing fine.
I think the bag turned out sooooo cute. A local embroidery shop did the name on some fabric and I stitched it into the bag.

I hope she likes it.
