Closet - Complete

Hey Everyone... I have a quick post this evening. I have finally finished the closet I have been working on..and I thought I would share the finished project. I know it is not card related, but I thought I would share anyway considering I did use some SU products, and Pinterest was involved. :)
You see, I took the clothes out of my closet, and made it a small office for myself  -
I had been having insulation issues when it was full of clothes. The closet is on an outside wall, and was not insulated, therefore putting clothes in it made it a refrigerator. My husband and I took our clothes out of it over a year ago, and it has been an empty space ever since. SO, why not make it usable again and convert it into a tiny office. :) I added shelves and a desktop from Ikea, made a message board, and framed some of the new Sycamore Street DSP for some color and interest. I really love the outcome, and can't wait to use the new space. OK, so much for a quick post.. off to finish dinner. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! :)

There's only one you

Hey Everyone! I have been trying to get downstairs to create something for a few days, but failed at every attempt. I did some closet remodeling last weekend and that has seemed to take on a life of its own putting everything that was in it away, and organized. :) So much has happened this last week, I celebrated a birthday, Sale-a-bration is in full swing, and my eldest is getting ready for his first school dance. Lots of Excitement!! :) I did make it downstairs today however to make a birthday card for my Brother-in-law. My Sister and her husband are HUGE Dr.Who fans, and I thought how perfect the Vintage phone booth from the Sale-a-bration set Feeling Sentimental would be to use for a card for him-
So Cute right! I stamped the image 3 times with black Stazon, then water colored the image with my Night of Navy reinker. On each of the colored images I cut out certain sections then layered each of the images on top of each other for a really great 3D effect. Here is a close up picture -
I love the way it turned out, so as long as I have the stuff on my desk I am going to make another! Fun!! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -

Pursuit of happy

Hi Everyone! I have been busy all day taking down the Christmas decorations inside and out, and I am finally done. So what a better time to sit down with a cup of something warm, and share yet another sample made with some new goodies from the new SU Spring catalog. :) I had the scraps on my desk from the previous post, so I decided to put them to use. This is what I came up with -

I used the sets Pursuit of happiness from the main catalog, and Spring Sampler from the Spring mini. The DSP is a Sale-a-bration freebie called Sycamore Street. This paper is Gorgeous! I will certainly be placing an order for $50 during Sale-a-bration so I can get some more. :) I also used a new add on tool for the Simply Scored called the Borders Score plate, another love from this spring catalog. OK, off to get a refill. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek! Details below -
