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...

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …
