Some scraproom answers, a video and a giveaway. :)

Gonna try to make this post quick – I think my allergies are turning into a cold.  Crud.

I have some scraproom answers, a video and a giveaway. :)

Thanks for all the nice comments about my scraproom.  I do love it down there.  And I am so thankful the kids like to be down there as much as me.  A few answers to questions:

  • I got the buttons on the wall from Pottery Barn when they went on super clearance.  I bet you can find them on ebay.  The scissors are from Hobby Lobby.
  • My room isn’t always that clean. :)   I get a lot of shipments of products (this is my job) so it is hard to keep up with putting things away.  But I really try.  The kids are very helpful.
  • The little white drawers from Ikea – yes, they don’t have labels.  I move things around so much that I decided not to put any labels on them.  But I remember where everything is – it is that engineer mind of mine.  :)
  • Those little white drawers were first sanded, then primed, then painted with semi-gloss white trim paint.
  • I haven’t measured the room, but Ken guesses it is 15′ x 25′.
  • The punches hang on the pegboard with little metal shelves and hooks.  You can get all kinds of different ones at Home Depot for super cheap. 
  • I do have a lot of stamps, but keep in mind that I work for Hero Arts, so I have all of their stamps. I could never have paid for them all! :)   (And this is another reason I give a lot away – I like to pay it forward.)

Now it’s time for a video!  I am leading the fourth week of Stamp Camp over on 2peas.  Click HERE for information and close-ups and HERE for a thread about the camp.  And if you play along, you could win a great prize!  Here is the video and projects…

Now… a giveaway!  Fiskars is so generous… and they sent me two of a stamp set.  So… one could be yours.  Just leave a comment on this post by 11:59pmEDT on Thursday telling me what your first stamp you got was (if you remember!).  I will then pick a winner of this great Heidi Grace set…

BTW… my first stamp was a Hero Arts flower.  Funny, huh?  I remember when I first started scrapbooking, I told my brother and Ken that I would NEVER buy stamps… “why would anyone want to buy a stamp when you could print clip art for free?”  Boy, did I eat my words, huh?  Now I can’t imagine creating without a stamp.  Hee…

OK… have a great night!

    My first stamp was actually the stampin around handle and wheels. I never thought I would have as many stamps set as I do. My collection keeps growing.

  2. Wonderful video! I love your creative space and hope that once I move I will get my craft space that tidy.

  3. It was a teddy bear set by SU almost 3 years ago…

    I LOVE YOUR OFFICE!!! The colors and space are awesome! Appreciate you sharing it with us!! My first stamp was a bear stamp, but before that I remember in elementary school making stamps with potatoes!

    Julie from San Diego, CA

  10. Oh, my. I can’t remember back that far. I was only about 10 or 12 when I first started stamping. I got rid of all my stamps when I was 21 and moving away. I’ve only recently started stamping again. Knowing how much I loved dogs, though, it was probably a dog stamp!

    My first stamp was a clown and I also still have the first card I made with it over 13 years ago.

    Love your scrapbook room.. Some great ideas and I hope to put some into place. Thank you for sharing with us and all your inspiration. Your family is to cute, just like you. I loved it when you told Roxy about her treats. so sweet. I am thankful for you and your great ideas. Have a great Thanksgiving.

  14. Marcie Raplee

    Again love the room you have for your great cards and videos. You help me be more creative – thank you!

    My best organize tip for my ribbon is the plastic open top shoe box style box with small holes all around it. I have easy access to the ribbon and it feeds from the little holes very easy. I don’t have a lot of ribbon at this time but am sure I’ll have to change my storage for it as I get more and more.

    Hope you get over your cold soon!! It is almost Thanksgiving and you sure don’t want to be ill then….

    MY ORGANIZATION TIP.

    I KEEP MY RIBBONS IN SPOOLS BY MAKING A STAND FOR THEM. ON THE WOODEN TOY SECTION OF HOBBY LOBBY I BUY WHAT WOULD BE THE WHEELS FOR TRUCKS AND THEN THE PRE CUT DOWELS TO FIT THEM. INSERT ONE SIDE OF THE DOWEL ON THE WHEEL AND IT WILL STAND UP ALLOWING THE SPOOLS TO BE THREADED FROM THE TOP. THEY STAND UP AND DON’T TIP OVER. THIS WORKS FOR ME AND IT IS SUPER ECONOMIC! I HAVE THEM DIVIDED BY COLORS.

  16. my first stamp i ever got if i remember right was a dollar stamp from michaels and it was a christmas tree.

  17. Oh my, my first stamp that I ever got was many years ago, probably like 15years and it was one of the disney stamps (tigger?) and I used it a couple times and it sat for years.

  19. Keely
