A new scraproom

well, almost new. Actually not even close, its the same room with a new desk! I got my new desk built last Sunday, not the saw horse desk I wanted but it was still hand made and has pink legs!! I finished the week 2 weeks ago with taking my room apart, and a BIG mess in the middle of the room! It took a day to build the desk, and a day of painting. Then it took another day to get everything where I wanted it. I even painted my shelves!! Can you guess the color?? Yep, PINK! Here are some pictures from my room

I also wanted to share with you something my friend Krisitn and I found the other day at michaels. We where in the American Girl section and came across the desk pad. It is really cute! Its 30 sheets and at a really good price, $9.99 we also used a 40% coupon so that made it cheaper!! It is really cute, and will come in handy for me! Just wanted to pass it along to you! I will be getting another for Julia, we are making her a desk this summer before she starts school. There is a picture of it in the slide show of my scrap room pics!

PINK! PINK! Everything will be PINK!!

Don't you just love the color pink!? Well, you may or may not but I LOVE it!! This weekend, I painted a few things pink, and when I say a few I only mean 2! I painted my display (is that spelled right??) and my large scraper watermelon pink. They are soo pretty! Wanna see them??

Aren't they soo pretty! I am hoping to have a new desk in a few weeks that will be that color, well the base will anyways.

Now, for a few other creations I made this past week. The first is a called a bragging board, not my original idea, I got the idea from another blog knockoff wood. She has the best furniture plans for those who want to build it. That is also where I found the desk I am hoping to have in a few weeks. I started by wanting the cameron desk, but changed my mind and now have decided on the saw horse desk 2 of them! So back to the board, I took a piece of wood, not sure the size and modge poged some cute paper onto it, then modge poged the clothes pins and glued them down to the wood. I was really impressed with how it turned out.

Now my favorite thing I made this weekend! My new sign!! I saw it last week at a scrapbooking store and had to have it!! So I made it! I used a blank metal sign that I bought from hobby lobby at valentines, some paper from micheals, cardstock from american crafts, vinyl and of course modge podge!! That stuff has become my new bff!! OH!! I also used my gypsy!! I am soo happy with the way it turned out. The center of the sign is from accent essentials and the letters are form opposites attract.

Party time!!!

Just a few short days ago my baby girl turned 5!! The next day she lost her first tooth!! Such a happy last few days we have had!

Back to scrapbooking! Over the past month I have been busy making stuff for Julia's birthday party! I made just about everything that I could. From the party bags to the banner. I used my gypsy for everything I made. I LOVE my Gypsy, I like the fact that while I can look at what I am going to design before I cut it out. So, here is what I made!

The invitation! I made this using the Cricut Sweet Treats cartridge. This is the cupcake with the heart, I cut the heart off and added a cherry! Then I embossed the bottom using a Quickutz embossing foler and the top using a Cuttlebug folder. The pink embossed glitter is Zing, I love it!! The pink bow is tied around the cupcake using tule. The back of the invite is solid brown with a pink box with all the party info!!

Here are the party bags, also cut from Sweet Treats! I added the scallops around the top. Then added a cupcake and covered the opening with acetate paper. For handles I used pink tule!

This is a tub I got from the dollar spot at target. I added the cupcake to it using pop dots. Such a cute little thing for utensils.

This one, I did today. I had a hard time finding blowers to match the cupcake theme so here is what I did. I bought some on clearance cut a circle from my cricut of course and stamped the cupcake image on the circle. Then glued it down over the original image!!

And now the banner! This I made from celebrations and alpahlicous. And my new favorite thing to use tulle!! Seriously have you used it yet, its so nice! I took a class with a friend of mine at Archivers and they gave us some to tie around a jar we altered ever since then we have both been addicted to the stuff!!

So, that is what I have been doing! Hopefully after this weekend I will get more done!! Scrapping and blogging!

Happy Valentines Day!
