I made a couple Easel cards tonight











I made a couple of Easel cards tonight. Southernbellescrapper had a tutorial on her blog on how to make these cute cards. I tried it tonight and they turned out really cute. Here's one of them.
I cut my card at 12" x 5 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2"
I used Accent Assentials and Store Front cartridges. I cut the lg. scallop from AA at 3" and 2 1/2" . I cut the cricut head at 2". I used dimensionals to pop it up, added ribbon and another scallop at the bottom for the card to rest,(also popped up with dimensionals.)

I made a video of my scrappin space!

videoMy daughter finally figured out how to upload the video of my scrappin space. Remember this is the first video I've ever taken. We don't know how to edit so this is pretty rough. But I thought it would give you a better idea of how my space functions. Let me know what you think, I love comments, it makes my day. Thanks, Shari ( I hate the sound of my voice!)

New Layout I did last night


Several people have asked me about the pleating on this layout. If you go to:
Amyee has a tutorial on her blog on the pleating. Go to her post, good day sunshine and she has a link to scrapbook circle that you can click on. She has a video there on how to do the pleating. Amyee is one talented lady, check out her work.







I made this layout last night. I tried Aymee's (southern belle scrapper's) technique for the pleating. I love her style and always wondered how she did it.


No cricut used on this one...This is my daughter when she was little. I love these pics. of her. She's 16 now.




Let me know what you think. Click on the pic. to zoom in.

MY NEW AND IMPROVED SCRAPPING SPACE


I filmed my first video yesterday of my new scrapping space. Unfortunately I can't figure out how to get it on the computer and to my blog. So......I guess the next best thing is pictures.CLICK ON PICS. TO MAKE THEM LARGER!!!!!
This first pic. is the view as you come down the stairs, yes my area is in the basement. I'd rather be upstairs, but I couldn't have all this room.

This is the view from the other side of the basement. I just love it. It's very functional but kind of pretty too.

The tables I got at IKEA, $19.99 each. I couldn't pass them up. They are a little narrow but very sturdy. If I have someone come to scrap with me, I have some 8 ft. tables I can set up.










Here's Maggie, she thinks she's queen of scrappers! She always follows me down, to see what she can get into.


This is my favorite wall:
I visited a blog : Feathers in my nest. Angie had pics. displayed of her new scrapping space. She had a couple of these drawer units. (I just loved them, the drawers are shallow and you can see everything you have in them.) Angie, you started something! Thanks.
So after Christmas, I was off on a two hour drive to IKEA.



This wall has a cabinet I've had for years that I re-vamped and put shelves for my patterned paper. To the left of this cabinet is my card stock paper rack. I found this at a Hallmark store going out of business. I ordered the clear acrylic racks off e-bay, it's on wheels and twirls, I love it. Next to that is a rack my best friend found at a store going out of business. It holds so much stuff. I have all my vinyl, my carts, buttons and flowers. The other side has all my glass stuff to etch, all my plates and tiles to vinyl. On the top rack is all my scrapbooks that are finished.



This is a close up of my two drawer units, as you can see, I labeled some of the drawers with wallpops and my cricut. In-between them is my paper scraps sorted by color.
And of course there's my big bug, I can't scrap without her.










This is my dress form that I've had for years. I collect the old rhinestone jewelry and pin them all over her. I love the sparkle!!!!

I originally had it up-stairs in my bedroom. Until I saw Angie's blog, she had so much pretty stuff and I loved the look. I thought maybe I could dress up the basement feel of it. I like it, now I can sit and scrap surrounded by some of my favorite things.






This is my new ott light I got for Christmas and a couple of bigel rails from IKEA. I cricuted the inside of these plastic containers with bugs.









This display case, my husband brought home from work. They were throwing it out!!! He told them, "My wife could use that" I was so excited, it works great to display my newest projects before I put them in books. Or send out cards. On top of the cabinet is my new bind it all. I havn't had a chance to use it yet, but will soon. Next to it is Robyn, My Pink Stamper's dvd. I love it, I made almost all of the projects on it. You need this!
Sorry I couldn't show you the video. If I figure it out, i'll post it later.
Let me know what you think of my space or if you have any questions. I love comments on my blog, so if you'd take the time to follow me and leave me a comment I'd love it.
Thanks, Shari
