My Scrap Space

Thought I would share pictures of where I create. I always get inspired by looking at others' spaces so maybe something here will inspire you, too. Scrapbooks, etc. had a contest last fall for re-doing your scrap space and I used that to do my own (I never win those things anyway!). It is definitely a work-in-progress, changing constantly as I try new ideas. Right now, it's half-way clean but won't be by the end of the day. I have other storage that I also use but my kids have wrecked the rest of the room so we won't go there. Hope you enjoy it!

I'm planning on adding a power strip along the backsplash so I don't have to use exension cords anymore. I'm going to put in lighting under the glass cabinet and maybe one in the corner above those shelves. I also saw an idea for using a curtain rod on the wall to store punches so I may be doing that soon punch drawers are over-flowing! If you have any additional ideas, feel free to comment! I love getting organization tips!

Ali-Doodle This Scrapbook Layout

I was watching the latest installment from the Essential Scrapbooking Video Collection and was inspired to use my Watercolor Wonder Crayons. I've had these since we first starting selling them but really haven't used them that much. But now, they are becoming one of my favorite mediums. I used the Doodle This set and Jet Black Staz-On with watercolor paper. After I stamped the images and colored them, I tore the designs out instead of cutting them and added glitter. I attached them to the page using glue dots and Stampin' Dimensionals. The ribbon is the ribbon I used for the example in the Faux Ribbon technique below.
