Craft Room Inventory & Ink Pad Color Charts

Hello Crafters!!!!!  I wanted to share my craft room book with you.  How often do you go to the store and buy a tool you already have?  We all do it because you just can't remember everything.  I want to buy new things not spend money on what I own.  This is why I created this book and it is going to get used.
The first part of my binder has ink pad color charts.  I have found that I do grab this a lot to choice the best color for any project I am working on.  I also made my own color charts for Memento & Colorbox ink pads.  If you would like a copy message me at my FB page, Robbin CrazedCrafter
The rest of the binder has samples of all my punches, dies and embossing folders.  I will be making a list for my Cricut Cartridges and other goodies I have in my stash.  Please check out my video at this bottom of this page.  I really love it.
Thank you for coming over to my blog.  Have a great weekend.  Hugs Robbin

CrazedCrafter's Craft Room

We recently had a Spaghetti Party and had about 20 guest.  A friend of ours that we usually meet in Iowa City came here and fell in love with my craft room.  She has encouraged me to post for Pinterest.  This room was truly put together on a budget.  The set of 4 10' each counter top was $40, the bookcase under was about $100, the peg board is like $10 each. 
The shelving under the counter my husband built and each are 13" wide.  The containers in each are like 20 quart containers from Walmart.  They contain extra adhesive, extra tools, embossing powder, fibers and laces.  The 3 shelves behind the trash can each have my paper scraps one has solid, one has patterned paper the last one has white, black and craft card stock.  It is all in perfect reach.
This is a close up of where I sit.  The bottom of the picture and left is my white gel pens and markers, then my rules with my trimmers, the containers hanging have my color pencils, tools, glue sticks then my scissors.  My hot glue gun sticks, ATG and my Scor Tape is hanging there.  The shelve above has my inks and small ribbons I grab a lot.
This section is to the left of where I site.  The punch board in the right is the most grabbed punches I use and another one up above that holds my more seasonal ones. The peg board has alot of my fast grabs too.  It has my bling, veneer cutes, brads, flowers and lots of misc.  My paper towels and wet wipes sit there too.  My book to the left of the monitor has a sample of all my punches, inks, markers and printables in it.  I do have a video of me making the punch shelves.  Our friend Randy said I would never be able to make them.  I provide it LOL,  Here is the link

You can see my Lindy's and Glimmer Mist on the top shelf.  My Stickles are on the shelf about Hello Kitty too.  My most Fav My Mind's Eye 6x6 stacks hang on the board along with Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket and few other misc. paper pads.  In the corner under Hello Kitty are my 8x8 and 4.5x6.5 pads.  I don't use my Cricut has much as I used to but that has been it's place since it came home.

The left is my pattern paper, then plain paper and felt, The stand is for my Big Shot.  The next container has my I am Roses flowers and the next two containers holds, pearls, leaves, feathers, and all kinds of other little things we Crafters buy.

I also made the self that hold my Cricut cartridges.Here is the link to the video   The plastic shelf has my stacks of plain and patterned paper.  I just donated several sets to the school. The next couple shelves down have containers of ribbon and totes bursting at the seam with stamps.

That was the tour of my little craft room.  I love my space and hope you do.  Thanks Hugs, Robbin

Cricut Cake Wedding Card Holder

I think some of you will remember a few years back Cricut had a contest.  We were to used cartridges that were released that year and anything goes.  I decided to do this wedding card holder.  It was so much fun to make.  The cake layers were paper mache' round hat boxes.  The brown paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby in the art department.  The blues are Bazzill bling from my local scrapbook store.  There are so many details on this so you must see the video I made.  Here is the link  These two link are more detailed videos and   Thank you for stopping by, Hugs Robbin

Recipe Binder Cricut ~From my Kitchen~

I think we all get recipes over the years, write them down and then lose them.  When my niece Jacklyn bridal shower came up on my to do list. I wanted to make something nice for her to put recipes in.  I went to Staples found this binder and sleeves.  The From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge was perfect.  I love the stove and refrigerator they are super cute.  Then decided the bread, bowl and rolling pin would reflect recipes the best and topped it with whip, blend and stir.  I used Elegant Edges cartridge to cut the name plate.  The butterfly bling is from Zva Creations.  The inside pages I used word to design.  She really loved it.  Thanks Hugs Robbin

Jewelry Inspired Mini Album

As most of you know I live in a town of about 1500 people.  Every year in June we have city wide tag sales.  A few years back I ran into a friend and told her I was looking for odds and ends jewelry.  She said I will call ya and boy did she.  Her friends mother passed away and they were selling everything.  She asked me what I did with it all.  I told her I would make something for her.  This is the cover to the book. You can go to my FB page to see several more pictures. You can also check out the video here is the link  She really loved it. Thanks for stopping Hugs Robbin
