Now that the business of voting is shared lets look at Part 5- Display Shelving!!!!
I braved the top of my desk to bring you this shot!  Impressive.  Remember my Craft Room Storage my husband and son built me last summer!  Well it was on a different wall and I decided I wanted it on this wall.  Where it's 2" to long to fit.  My loving patient husband took it apart and ripped it down to fit!  YAY!
 
 
Here is the piece he re sized for me.  Love having my Big Shot, Vagabond and shims all in one spot.
 
On the other side all my dies are separated and organized!
 
For a little added character I added these enamel numbered tags to all my shelves edges.  For me it's added character and shows my craft room isn't just for stuff.  It's a creative atmosphere.
My Birthday money stretched a long way!  These HUGE Ikea shelves are 6' long and are great for open shelving concept.  They are perfect for the look I wanted. 
 Along with the glass jars and wire baskets I can see it all!


On the top shelf I keep stuff I don't use as often but still need accessible.  Including my "seasonal" stamps.  I keep a Halloween stamp front and center.
 

At the other side of this 12' space is my "display" shelving.  I have some pieces I love and don't want tucked away.  My son bought me this shelf with his snow shoveling money.  The smaller shelf has my Creative Chemistry 101 and 102 tags and a big wire basket waiting for something to fill it.  I just picked it up today.

 
That's it for now.  I still have a new desk coming I'll be refinishing and some goodies my husband is building.  Until then this is my creative space.  I hope it gave you some creative ways to store your stuff.  Thank you for leaving me your comments.  I've been enjoying reading them and your own storage ideas.
 
One more time...

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Make Watercoloring Easy with Clearsnap Blends

Ohhhh the Blends are here and I am loving them!  I am super excited to play with Eileen Hull's Clearsnap Colorbox Blends.  This month the Inspiration Team has been sharing their projects and they have been AMAZING!
Follow this easy tutorial for watercoloring with Blends.

I pulled out the watercolor paper grabbed my floral dies heart & soul and pansy.  Grabbed my Blends and Koi stamp.

OH MY GOODNESS... Look at how the Blends work with my Koi stamp.  I randomly applied the Blends and spritz with water then stamp.  I designed this Koi stamp to have a watercolor effect when stamping so perfecto!

The pansy die is cut and ready for Blends.  I popped some colour on my mat, spritz and drag.  I inked the edges a bit then ran my watercolor pen to soften.  The perfect lily pad.  Repeat this step for the heart & soul in hues of blue Blends.

With the Koi dry apply some of the Blends in blue, spritz and use a watercolor pen for this water step.  Randomly apply the shades of blue to cre…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…
