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.

Small Reindeer Bauble

I've been busy making a mess all weekend trying out different types of Christmas cards and other projects so thought I would share a quick project.

This bauble is smaller than the ones I made a little while ago - it will fit on a Christmas Tree whereas the other ones were for room decorations.
Hoping to have a few more projects to share with you very soon.
