Yay it’s finally finished!!

Hello again, i hope you are all well?  It’s all a bit hectic in the Camp household at the moment as i am helping to Organise a Fundraising event for M’s Primary School PTA, as well as everything else!

The Event is “A Night of Indulgence” a night of all our favourite indulgences such as pampering, shopping and CAKE!! lol It is on Friday October 21st at 7pm and if you are local to Saffron Walden and would like a ticket ping me an email.

Right enough of that and on to that the title.  Yay it’s finally finished!!! My craft space is done!!! WOO HOO!! doing a little happy dance.  My Space has been entirely built by Mr. C. my husband and myself and i am very proud of it.  So Settle down for my picture heavy walk through my little craft space.  You may have seen some of these photos before so i apologise but this is the story of my craft space in our new home, it has taken nearly 18months to get it done.

Are you sitting comfortably?  Then we shall begin;

So my craft space is only 110cm by 60cm so is very limited and so lots of thinking for the storage of all my lovely stash.  We started at the desk it needed to be solid so that when stamping the images would come out perfectly, and it needed to be durable.  So off we went to the local builder’s yard looking for an off cut and got an offcut of a solid wood fire door for only £9.00!! bargain would have cost us so much more if we had brought the equivalent in wood.

Then shelves were a must have of course. Mr. C hates putting up shelves apparently i am obsessed with storage so he has put up multiple shelves in every room since we’ve moved in.

Then i need a comfy chair and a notice board, as you can see in the picture above i just had one of the spare chairs from our dining table.  So i quickly swapped that for one of the Carver chairs from the dining table and a trip to the Haberdasher’s and a satisfying session with a staple gun and this is what i came up with;

A few months passed and as i worked i tweaked the space a little and added bits Mr. C created storage for me.  And so now its finished, here it is;

DSC01051

As you can see i have padded the arms of my chair as well as sewing a little cushion to tie to the back to make it that bit more comfortable.  I also made a little footstall to rest my feet on (as my feet don’t reach the floor! lol!) it was made with a scrap lump of oak wrapped and padded a small piece of MDF with a few wooden drawer knobs as feet I’m quite proud of it. 

 

DSC01056

Mr. C made me this little hutch to store my ink pads yesterday out of scrap bits of MDF he had hanging around his workshop its all been painted with cream paint and finished with boat varnish so it is extra durable as is every wooden surface in my craft space.   The little shelves that you can see in the top corner are my little project display area and i have covered the bottom shelf with black card so that i can use it for taking photographs as there is a lamp above this.

DSC01058 

Here is a close up of the finished ‘no pin’ notice board that i made the buttons in between the ribbon crosses are all vintage and salvaged (cadged! lol) from my Nan’s button box.  Right in the centre is a button from my Uncle’s Fireman’s uniform with the Essex forces crest on it. 

And of course i needed a space just to store my Big Shot, but i also wanted to be able to use my die cutter whilst it was in the storage solution.  So Mr. C set to work again in his workshop and knocked up this little cabinet on wheels that i can pull in and out when i want to use it.  I brought the baskets and my clever hubby created it to fit.  My dies and punches are stored in these baskets.

I cant believe how much i have crammed into such a small space so you don’t necessarily need vast spaces to find a little creative haven.

And here is what is on my Work desk today;

Not a lot!! lol It is very tidy which Mr. C will tell you is very unusual! and here is the reason for the jiggle in my belly – a cuppa and 3 (!) biscuits!! lol

If you are still reading thank you for sticking with it, i will be back very soon with a new project.

A Little Thank You

Morning All, another pillow box to share with you today this time using the retiring Because I Care Hostess Set, i shall really miss this set as it is so beautiful and so useful.

DSC00998

This time a Pillow Box {113466} made in Very Vanilla, i stamped the flower head in Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive using the Classic Stampin’ Spots.  The sentiment was stamped from the same set in Rich Razzleberry and edged with basic rhinestones.  I knotted a length of Old Olive Ribbon to finish.

Christmas Favour..

Morning all, Hope you are well?

Today i have a little Christmas table favour to share with you made using the Pillow Box Die {113466 £16.95} with the Big Shot

DSC00997

Made in Old Olive card stock, i quickly wheeled the Music Notes Wheel {120327} across the pillow box in Old Olive ink assembled it with Tombow adhesive stamped the Merry Christmas from the Season of Joy {110384} stamp set and run a line on basic rhinestones to add a bit of sparkle.  To finish i tied a little knot of Old Olive Satin Ribbon which is gorgeous and luxurious i love stroking it!

Quick and simple to mass produce for all the guests at Christmas i even think it would be nice on the tree filled with sweets.

Dashing Dasher…

Hello! hope every one is well, just a quick one from me today using the gorgeous Dasher Stamp.

Dasher {116816} is in the a la carte section of the Idea Book and Catalogue where you can buy single stamps, and Dasher only costs £7.95 so is a complete bargain seeing as how completely gorgeous he is! I am planning on using him on lots of projects because his antler just cry out for bling!

So today i have a project which can solve the problem of the ugly gift cards you now get in stores.  Using the Scallop Envelope Die {113462 £18.95} which is exclusive to Stampin’ Up! to make a tiny purse in Crumb Cake card stock.

DSC00996

I have stamped with my Music Notes Wheel {120327 £6.50} in Crumb Cake ink before stamping Dasher in Rich Razzleberry ink.  Of course i blinged-up his antlers with a couple of Basic Rhinestones then punched a little handle with the Word Window Punch and tied a little piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding to close.

The little purses would be great filled with chocolate on any festive party tables and so quick to make.  If you would like any products used to produce this project then please contact me craftylittlemoo@hotmail.co.uk

Until Next Time

I am Alive!!

Hello everyone, i am still alive so sorry for my lack of posts lately i have been a useless blogger!  It has been a busy time in the Camp household as our eldest M. started ‘big school’ this week so there has been lots of preparations to do.

I have also tackled the black hole casually known as under our bed!! So after sorting all that i now have a ton of stuff to put on that well known auction site one of the worst jobs on my to do list!  But i also have lots of space to store my Lace pillows so i may even finish off a piece, i have two pieces on the go at the moment that were started long before little H was even born!

So anyways enough of that, here is a Christmas card for you, made using the Top Note die for the Big Shot to make an easel card.

 

DSC00995

Crumb Cake base, with a half layer of Very Vanilla that has the Music Notes wheel off stamped in Crumb Cake ink with Dasher over stamped in Crumb Cake Ink finished of with Crumb Cake Seam Binding.  The sentiment is from Heard From The Heart Stamp Set.  I have edged everything with Crumb Cake Ink to give it that Vintage feel.
