New Room & Matchin' Card!!

Hi friends! Hope your week has been swell so far!! I seem to not be getting rid of this nasty sinus/head cold stuff very fast--ugh, it's still hangin' around! But I did eek out a card for ya today and I have some pics of my new craft room!! Only 2 things left to do in my room--hubby has to hang up my toile plates & put the silver handles on my large cabinets & it's done--hurray! I really love it--so pretty, clean & most of all super organized! I love organization---makes me sooo much more productive! And for anyone who is curious, the quote on the wall above my shelves is by "me" that I had custom made by UpperCase Living--great company for making words & quotes for your walls! I have had this quote & a bunch of others for over a year now & have just procrastinated on putting them up, hee hee! Good thing I waited or else this quote would be in my other room :o( & you can't move 'em once they're up!! Anywhoo, movin' on for the day! **PICTURE SLIDESHOW OF MY CRAFT ROOM BELOW**

*********************************************

So today I have a Magnolia card for you that I made to match my "new" craftroom, hee hee, no lie!! I wanted a pretty card to display on my shelf that matched & yes I am anal that way :o) I used this fabulous new "Tilda w/ Birdcage" available at Magnolia-licious HERE--isn't she adorable? I used yesterday's Verve Mojo Monday Anniversary Sketch (Day 2 HERE) for my layout which I just loved! The black/white dp is from PTI, as is the ribbon. The cardstock is retired SU soft sky (I adore it, hoard it, matched my room paint to it & need more--if you know anyone who wants to get rid of some, let me know) that I embossed w/ a Cuttlebug Folder(textile texture)!! The sentiment is from PTI's "Wishing You" set!

I added some diamond stickles to her dress & hairband & then coated her shoes & birdcage with Diamond Glaze for shine. I made her lil' birdie a finch cuz' I liked the pop of yellow :o) I just adore her & she is happily sitting on my black hutch in my craft room, hee hee!

Below are pictures of my craft room and here are some quick answers to any questions, hee hee!

-my Rubbermaid X-cubes are available HERE or HERE!
-PTI stands for Paper Trey Ink
-my paper cutter is by Tonic & available HERE (the best by far-never needs new blade, sharpens itself)
-toile curtains I've had but they came from Country Curtains
-Upper Case Living is fabulous for quotes for your wall--see HERE for more info
-I did not show the inside of my closet--it is super organized but not worth showing, hee hee-I have lots of space to grow into
-My ribbon pantry shelves I got at Lowes but I think Target & Home Depot have them too!
-Any other questions, lemme' know!
-And big huggies & lots of love to my hubby who persevered with me all weekend to get this room completed--love ya!!

  3. Your room looks fabulous! I especially like the idea to use a shoe organizer for your punches, I've been trying to come with something for a while now, so I might just steal that one from you ;o)

    And as always I also love the card you made. I wish I could color like you do, it's so perfect.

  16. What a sweet card to match your room. I really do love you blue color. Makes me want to repaint mine...or not. Love, love, love you new space.

    One question..do you keep all your stamps in cd cases? I love the storage cubes but wonder if I will forget all I have or know where to look quickly. Thanks!!!

  23. Hi Suzanne,
    You have a beautiful room. Love your colour combo!! I guess we all wish we could have such a great room to work in and have it organized so well....
    Love your card - but can't see her in your room. Beautifully done - as always.
    Love Candy

  26. Suzanne, gorgeous card. I like cards with black and white in them, so yeah love those DP's. Very cute Tilda and as always your colouring is awesome.
    I am green with envy of your new craft room. Love the colour combo you chose for your walls. Now, I have a better idea of how to manage my ribbons. Do you use anything to keep the ends of your individual ribbons in place from unravelling? Or does your racks do that by themselves?

    Hugs.
    Norma

  27. Oh my goodness Suzanne, your craft room is to die for. Love the colors in there...soothing. Well thought out with the right table, cabinets, layout. I would just "live" in a room like this. Everything is in its place and so easy to find things. Well organized. Love your matching card also. You colored Tilda beautifully and the Diamond Dust adds just the right amount of shimmer! I'm jealous! Cami
