Snow Family and Craft Room Update




Good morning everyone!!! I have been going through my Christmas stamps and found this adorable Penny Black stamp that has not been inked up....gasp!!! I had to change that quickly!!!

I stamped the image with Memento Black and colored with Copics. The background green striped paper is called Swell Noel by K&co and the pink paper is called Snowflake by Rusty Pickle. The pink paper was cutout with an oval scalloped Nestie as was the white underlayer. I punched a slit in the image layers to run the SU Regal Rose ribbon through. That always makes me nervous...I have ruined several projects with just a slip of the hand, or punch in this case!!! Piercing was done around the baclground edges and punched snowflakes and pink rhinestones finish it off.






The craft room is coming along...the South wall cupboards have been installed. We have had the top cupboards stored in the barn for several years. When my DH uncovered them he discovered that the bottom ones were warped. Since matching them was impossible, we settled on white cupboards for the bottom. Hummmm, sounds like a stamping project to me!!!

The cupboards in the center will be the base for the island.









The West wall will have a 9 foot counter for the sewing machine, computer, and TV. Rolling compartment storage units will fill in under the counter. Racks and gutter for ribbons will cover the wall above the counter.

Thanks for stopping by today....Have a great Sunday!!!

Oh. My. Goodness.
You are one lucky gal having all of that room. You are going to be in stamping heaven!! Can't wait to see more pics of the work in progress.

I am soooo jealous!! Your craft room is going to be a dream! I have a very large studio, some of it unfinished, but none very well organized (we've been in this house a year) so I am looking at your progress to shamelessly steal ideas! ;-) If there was one or two things you really wanted in your room, what were they? I'm looking for table top surface for Cricut, Cuttlebug, paper cutters, etc. You are going to enjoy your room so much!

BTW, the snow family is so adorable!
