PPC-CC #53

Welp, its that time of week again -- Happy 'Manic' Monday! Although, I like to say my Monday's are very rarely manic. :) I seem to be enjoying them more and more lately, now that I have the day off! The day starts with some cleaning and exercise then coffee, blogging, and Tayton time! Not too shabby, eh??! The only downfall, is that I'm off to work Tuesday and Wednesdays. Oh well...gotta take some good with the bad, I guess.

So this week's color combo at Picture Perfect Creations was DEF a tough one for me! The colors aren't so ordinarly seen together too often...does that make any sense?? An so funny how I say this, as I'm the one who came up with the combo! lol But anyway, here ya go!

My Card Creation:
Card Size: 5-1/2 x 4-1/4
All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise stated.
Stamps: Punch  Bunch, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Pacific Point, Real Red, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip DSP (SU! Retired), Pacific PointDSP (SU! Retired)
Ink: Pacific Point
Tools: Scallop Circle Punch, Extra Large Scallop Circle Punch, Decorative Label Punch, Word Window Punch, Scallop Trim Border, 3-D Dimensionals
Accessories: 1/4" Real Red Grosgrain Ribbon

That's all for today, my friends! Be sure to head on over to PPC to check out all the DT Creations and make sure you enter, as well! And don't forget, you have till Thursday, March 31st to apply for our DT Creators Position! Have a great day!

PPC-CC Specialty Challenge #5: "Show Us Your Creative Space!"

Well hello my friends! This week's challenge at PPC is another Specialty Challenge for us and we're throwing a bit of a twist on it. Instead of make something crafty, you must ''Show Us Your Creative Space!"

We all absolutely LOVE to see where everyone likes to get crafty! There are so many different "spaces" out there and a lot of neat and funky ideas for storage, and space, and organization!

Before I show you my Creative Stuido, let me just explain a few things first...My space is my old bedroom as a teenager in my parent's house...notice the bright colors?! lol Guhh! I HATE the color pink now and would do anything to change it, but won't at this time anyway. haha  I am currently living in my parent's in-law apartment and they were so VERY nice to allow me to keep that room for all of my crafty things. And let me tell you that I am ecstatic about it! There would be NO room for the amount of crafty stuff I have in my apartment!! Also, there are a few other 'junk' related type things in the room, like some of my stuff from when I was younger that I really don't have room for in my apartment, either. And you may notice Tayton's pack-n-play in there, as well. :) He like to keep me company when I get crafty...but shh! please don't tell his daddy that! hehehe I was hoping to get more cleaning done this past weekend, but the stomach bug hit us all here and we're just getting over. Sorry for the clutter and mess...this is the best you're gonna get now! lol

So without further ado, here is my Creative Studio! ENJOY!!! :)

Here is where I do my blogging, of course! :) I also store all of my Stampin' Up! Cardstock and Ribbons here with a few other odds and ends. The wooden table, paper organizer, ribbon holders and shelves were all made by my wonderful hubby, Tim! :)

This is were my Big Shot and Cricut Die-Cutting Machines are kept and the drawers hold paper scraps and whatnot. Above that is my ink holder and to the right is my bulletin board with a few of my favorite creations.

My Stampin Up! wooden stamp storage...

And lastly, this is were I create and get crafty!!! :) I have all of my punches at hand for me, and my paper-cutter is off to the right-side of the table (not shown). All of my clear mount stamps and a few more punches are stored in the wooden box on the wall. Big thanks to my hubby for making that for me, too! :)

Welp, there you are! There's my messy Creative Studio! Hope you enjoyed the tour! One of these days, I'll really get it cleaned it...I promise! hehehe 

Now what are you waiting for!? We wanna see your Creative Space and be sure to post it and share it with us at PPC! And don't for get about our DT still have till March 31st to apply if you haven't already done so. Have a great day!
