House Cleaning!

I don't know what got into me yesterday but I have completely gutted my scraproom from ceiling to floor! I went through bins of old stuff, ALL of my stamps and cleaned them, went through some drawers and bins. Re-Sorted my patterned paper and cardstock....hmmmm...Oh I organized my shelves that have my paint, mists and punches and some other things here and there.

PHEW! I sat down to do some more projects for Core'dinations for CHA next week and owen came in and asked me if he could help me clean and organize my room. ARGH, I guess that isn't a good sign, is it? I did get his stamp of approval today. He came in and said he was glad I finally "got around" to get things organized around here. SO 24 hours later I am done.

Make sure you check out the link on the right hand side of my blog!!! ANOTHER Cored'inations give-a-way! 40 packs of Tim Holtz cardstock!!! They were designed to match his Ranger and Distressed lines perfectly :)

And did you see??? The new DT was posted over at Webster's!!! It's going to be a great year. Last year was awesome being on the team and I am looking forward to some DT alum stuff. I am excited for change and some new adventures this year. I have been a part of the Ning site over there since I met Terri two years ago and it is still a home away from home for me. I go there everyday with my coffee, LOL!



Here are a few cards that I created for The Color Room Shimmerz Palettes. I love playing along with these since I have a lot of these colors.



I used my Kreaxions butterfly die (ran it through my Cuttlebug, they work beautifully) and then covered it with crepe paper and lots of shimmerz! Cardstock is Core'dinations.


And another one for The Color Room. I used Core'dinations Whitewash (from the Jenni Bowlin Core Impressions line) and loaded it with Shimmerz paints. I love using these on my Core!!!! It's pre embossed so you don't have to do any texturizing.

Good for you for tackling your scraproom, Ellen! I NEED to do the same so badly. I sat down in mine on Friday, and felt a bit overwhelmed. Took a few things I had laying around on my desk and created a quick card with it and called it "cleaning up". ;)
I think your cards are fabulous! I love the bright colors of the first, and that butterfly looks amazing. Totally adorable the neutrals of your color room card. I think that is one of my all-time faves of yours.

I am amazed at how great those sprays look on your creations. Nice examples of the Core and the sprays. I can't imagine ever reorganizing my entire room although that would be cool but I just did some major changes to make things work better and that always feels good.
