Something a Little Different

Promised to post these photos ages ago when I completed the room, however, better late than never!

This used to be my dining room and it used to be terracotta! I saw some ideas in Ideal Home magazine a while back and immediately liked it but thought "ooh, this is going to be expensive", however, then saw the magic word "Ikea" and off I went!

The wallpaper I got in the sale at Laura Ashley a few years back and all the furniture apart from the tall book shelf, is Ikea - got the tall book shelf from a local pine shop. All the other bits and pieces I've collected over the last 12/18 months. The larger drawers are absolutely ideal for storing wooden rubber stamps and punches and the tall CD/DVD units are perfect for my unmounted stamps and Nesties which I keep in CD cases.

It's maybe not to everyone's taste but I absolutely love the lightness of the room and all the "vintage shabby chic" bits.

** Just had a closer look at the photos and noticed my socks on the desk...whoops! **

lovely. I would so like a dining room so I could steal it for my craft room :)

My SIL put the idea in my head Caz as we have a conservatory off the lounge which wasn't being used for anything in particular, so I decorated it and turned it into the dining room and then decorated the old dining room and turned it into my craft room!

Your craft room is gorgeous. I have our dining room as a craft room and we had to have a conservatory built to house the dining table etc lol

Another AMD Wedding Card!

I had another request for one of these wedding cards and I must admit I love making anything Anna Marie Designs related.  So, it's the same layout as before but just different names.

Which Craft? Template

Recently made a few cards using the concertina template from Which Craft? which I've had for a while and thought it was about time I put it to use.  So, I have made a large concertina card...

...a smaller concertina card...

...and finally, a different type of card using the same template.

Christmas Scene Decoration

I saw this project designed by Anna Marie nearly a year ago and have been desperate to make it ever since and have just found the time.  It is a little time consuming as you have to wait for the different mediums to dry but I'm pleased with the end result (even if it did take me nearly an hour to work out how to make the gnome's hat!)
I added some craft lights which don't show so well in the beautiful sunshine we are having today but they do make the project look very special...such a nice finishing touch.
