   I have recently Joined Stampin up as a demonstrator. I have also started a new blog just fo it.     I would love for you to stop by and join me in my quest to do what I love and share it with you.I will be sharing some of my stampin up post here. Below you will find a post from my other blog. I hope you enjoy it and come check out all I will be sharing.

      I opened "My Digital Studio" so I could start playing and working with it some. I love digital stamps & images. Was very excited to be able to use stampin up images in the digi format. I decided to try and make some Business Cards. I had a little bit of a hard time figuring out the margin and such. So I just worked with it for awhile & when I finished I cut them out. They were smaller then a regular card so I decided to layer them on Daffodil delight card stock.
I added an image then colored with "Stampin Write Markers. I was really happy with the way they turned out, For my first time using "My Digital Studio". I only made a few Figure I can make more as I need them.
I also used my Big shot to cut scalloped square pieces of fabric in order to make several paper back book covers. Some Nursing students at work are having a conference and are going to have a booth there selling some things. They have asked me to make some stuff for them to add to their booth. So I thought these might be good for them to take with them.
I hope you enjoyed this post and come back soon to see what I come up with. Have a great day and happy crafting

New Craft Area

      I have been so busy between work and creating cards. My most favorite thing to do. I had a bunch of cards made and was beginning to drown in them. So I made up packets of 20 and took them to work. Well they were such a big hit I have had several ask for more. So I have been busy working on them.

     I also just moved in to a new craft room my honey has made for me. We had a living room & family room. We never use the living room so he added a wall and door so now I have moved out of the family room and in to my own space. The pictures above are the space I was in before. Abour 5 feet wide by 5 feet long. Very narrow.
These show the space befor he made the wall and added all my stuff to the new space.Look at those wonderful windows in the front. I love all the light I get in here. Befor I didnt get any sun light in my space.

And these show my room done. Isn't he a love. I just love all the extra space and light. I can get so much more done in here and dont have to worry about the mess I leave if I have to stop in the middle of something. 
My  Husband made these cabinets years ago for part of an entertainment center. He was going to get rid of of them till I claimed them for my crafts. They are big and have lots of room for lots of stuff. well thats it for my room. Hope you have enjoyed it.
