New Craft Room

Well actually it's my old craft room, redecorated and rearranged, everything has been moved back in (took me two days to re-load it). I have included a few pics of  the craft room at the bottom of this post, but before we get to those I wanted to show you a card I made yesterday (the first one in my newly organised room).

Digital Stamp - Make a Wish - The Paper Shelter
Digital Papers - Oh So Pretty - Just So Scrappy
Tonic Geared Border punch - Victorian Border
Leaves - Britannia Dies - Leaf Strip
Corner - Anja's Vintage Corners - Marianne Creatables
Stick on Gems - Meiflower
I made the rolled roses by cutting 1 inch squares of paper, rounding the corners with my scissors then cutting a spiral into them and rolling up.

I am entering this card into the following challenges -
613 Avenue Create - #62 Anything Goes w/Optional Twist: Use 2D or 3D Flowers
One Stitch At A Time - #204 Use A Digi
Scribble and Scrap - Challenge #14  Always Anything Goes

Kitty Bee Designs - #19 Things with wings
Charisma Cardz - #6 Birthday Girls
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge - #301 Birthday cards
Paper Shelter Challenge  - #149 Fairies

~~~ Craft room pics ~~~

I'm calling this my "new" wall, we already had one of the drawer units and the hanging containers, but everything else is new and all comes from Ikea as does practically everything else in the room.
Cupboards are Alex and worktop is Ekbacken
The Shelving is part of the Algot system, the little jars full of buttons are called Rajtan
the hanging rail and containers are from the Bygel series....... are the Bygel wire baskets (handles removed and perfect for ribbon storage).
Spontan Metal board, Grundtal Magnetic containers and Micke desk with some Trofast storage underneath (hubby had to alter it slightly to make it fit).
The white wire baskets are also from the Algot system and the shelving units are Ivar, which along with my desk have been in my room for quite a while.

So that's it, my new work space, all organised and with lots of storage for even more craft stuff - Hehe!

Thanks for dropping by,
Colette xx
