The Memo boards were very simple to create:
I got these pencil holders at a local dollar store and added my own little touch with some pieces I cut out with the Island Floral Big Shot Die. They already have holes in them, so it was very simple to attach the flowers to them with a rhinestone brad.
Inside the cupboards are not so pretty....just a heads up, that's what doors are for right? I have a basket with my adhesives and all of the stampin' wheels and handles on the top shelf. The other shelves have prospective projects..... wreaths, books to cover, baby food jars etc....
On the center portion of my shelving I have my accessory caddies on top. On the shelf just below I keep my sponges and sponge daubers in the little pink drawers. In the pink basket I have my accessories that don't have containers to fit in the accessory caddy.
We are now on to the other cupboards. Once again..... I love that they close.
The last portion is my wood stamp sets. They are a bit more bulky, however I love the wood sets for the ones my kids stamp with. They are always knocking the clear stamps off the blocks!
On top of my shelving I store all of my cards I have made, and my card swaps from demonstrator events. I love having a stockpile of cards to choose from when I am in need of that perfect card.
I think it is VERY obvious that I am a tad bit fond of the Flirtatious Designer Specialty Fabric that Stampin' Up! sells. I sewed four of the fat quarters together to make each panel of my curtains. You can hardly see the seems because they are gathered.
I covered the pillows with the same fabric. I got the idea from another Super talented demonstrator Mandy Erickson. She gave instructions for them, but I am not one for patterns so I figured it out by the measurements of my pillow.
The little pillow is copied directly from a display I saw at Convention......one of the MILLIONS of perks of being a demonstrator. I used liquid stitch to adhere the ribbon that wraps around the pillow. With the stripped ribbon I used my sewing machine to put a running stitch down the edge of it and the pulled and gathered it. Once the ribbon was gathered I tied a knot in one end, put some liquid stitch on it and pinned that right to the center. I circled the ribbon around the knot adhering it with liquid stitch along the way and using pins to hold the ribbon in place while the liquid stitch dried.
Here is a close up of the rosette. I had not taken the pins out yet.
I hope you are liking my Inkin' Cute Craft Room as much as I am!!!
This lamp was salvaged from a sweet lady who passed away in my old neighborhood.
This is what it looked like when I stated. It is hard to tell with the lighting, but it was a dark blue before I spray painted it black.
I made the flowers with ....you guessed it.......the Island Floral Big Shot die. I layered the pieces together and used clear rhinestone brads to stick it right to the lampshade. The brads did a wonderful job of piercing the lampshade on their own.
I know, I know, I know....the vinyl is retired! I bought it way back when with the intention of using it in my house someday. That someday is here! The wreath is made with the Flirtatious Designer Series Paper as well as each topiary.
I don't change the displays out as often as I should, but I love the creative flare it adds to the whole room.
This Shower curtain is one that I am Super proud of!!!! I purchased two clear curtain liners from a local dollar store. I also got the pick curtain rings from the dollar store.
