Workspace in Progress

I was asked about how I store my Washi Tape and I thought I’d share that and a quick overview of what my desk looks like right now. Nope I didn’t clean it up to share with you all. It’s never a clear table. Why pretend it is.

And I actually have photos on my desk. See I still scrapbook. The Technique Tuesday stamps you don’t see hanging (most of them) are in the Stuff that needs a home box. I haven’t decided how I want to handle my seasonal, lesser used stamps. Everything expect the baby wipes holder (Target) and the Copic storage (Cascade gel packs box) everything is from Ikea. Scrapbook supplies came from the internet, Michaels/Joann/Hobby Lobby, and my new favorite place to shop Our Paper Place If you come to visit I’ll take you there. If you live in the area go there. It’s amazing!

Now for the Washi Tape:I have all my Target tapes up front along with my roll of Smash tape and a couple of rolls from Michael’s. I really thought I had a roll with little people on them, but they’re birds on a wire. Not really the same thing.

Well that’s what I have set up so far. My inks, embellishments, random other stuff is still working on finding a good home under the table, but for now it’s all working.  Also there might be a post in a week or two about my attempt at packing for a 12 hour crop. I haven’t scrapbooked outside my house since before 2010. So that’ll be an adventure.

Thanks for reading and happy crafting! <3 Ann

My favorite Disney Attractions

I went picture heavy on this because there is so much to love.

 

On the left side of the page is a picture of the Epcot Center map I took, Figment, Goofy, Pete’s Dragon from Main Street Electrical Parade, and title signs for both night time parades at Magic Kingdom over the years.  I did a small amout of journaling, but I’m really thinking of turning into a list. I’m just not liking the way it came out.  For the title i used more of the cardstock and the Silhouette. It doesn’t stand out too much, but it’s very me. I used Lawn Fawn’s new letter stickers for the title. The right side is all about my love of the Disney thrill rides. Space Mountain, Test Track, Tower of Terror, and Expedition Everest. I used Lawn Fawn’s Quinn’s ABC stamps for the title of the journaling card and a filler card from the PL kit. Again not sure if I love it, but except for the create they’re all feelings I have for these attractions and characters on this layout.

Thank You Card

 

I don’t think this card could be anymore me. I fell in love with this Studio Calico line, Take Note, mainly for the cubicle paper. I was a little unsure of how it would translate to 6×6, but it’s great. I found quite a few of my Lawn Fawn greetings fit perfectly including this Thank You from Sophie’s Sentiments. The ribbon is some really old American Crafts that I’ve been hoarding for years that I’m finally having to start using.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting! <3 Ann

PD: Page 2-3

There are really 2 1-pagers that happen to fit next to each other. The left page is getting around. The title square is from Project Life with Lawn Fawn stamps added. The circle card is cut from the Silhouette with the Project Life cardstock. (as was the chevron) I used some Technique Tuesday on the journaling card.  (I need to add a tag to note when those parking prices were accurate which was 2006)

The other page is kind of a general information of the parks. Each park has a card with it’s park name, opening date, icon, and some idea of what the park is all about. here you can see what each card actually reads. It also makes the MGM title easier to see. Yes, I did ignore the whole “Disney’s” in the park names. I think it sounds stupid. So to me it doesn’t exist. I tied to give each park it’s own color and or stamp theme. I had a lot of trouble with Epcot. I did the blue stripe to cover the World Showcase side, but the hearts well….it’s my favorite park. That’s really the only thing I thought of.

Lawscaping Challenge #31

My card this week uses quite a bit of color. I used Copics and new Tim Holtz Distress Markers.  I used a few different sets here: I used Quinn’s ABCs, Gnome Sweet Gnome, and Critters in the Burbs. I used Bright Side 6×6 papers as well.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting! <3 Ann

Happy Easter

Happy Easter from my family to yours.

The card was made using Echo Park Splash for the blue background, The grass and sun are Lawn Fawn Bright Side, and the crosses are Basic Grey wood grain from Life of the Party. I cut the grass, sun, and crosses with the Silhouette.  I cut the grass too short and I’m already running low on that paper so I added a 2nd small strip and some Lawn Fawn trimmings colored with Seed Packet Jenni Bowlin ink.

I hope everyone has a relaxing holiday and enjoys time with family.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting. <3 Ann
