Treat boxes for Zachary's class

With Valentines Day quickly approaching I thought that I would put my Love Struck cartridge and Cricut to work.  These cute boxes are on the Love Struck cartridge and they go together pretty quickly.  I put 4 on a sheet of 12x12 paper, so its not a project that takes tons of paper!!  Zachary LOVES them and is ready for Valentines to be here!

I used the Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots folder to emboss the acetate window.

Trying to get the creativity back

Its been so long since I have sat down and actually taken the time to create.  I have missed it, yet once I sit down I just can't think of anything to do.  My friend Stacy had sent me one of these stationary boxes for my I decided that I would give one a try.  Its not perfect but not bad for the first creation in a long time.  It holds 3x3 cards, tags, notecards and envelopes, address book, stamps, and a pen.  Maybe the creativity is slowly starting to come back......

My Scrap Space

Well I finally managed to get my scrap space to a place that I am pretty happy with. Its been a long process and I am sure as time goes on it will once again change! Are we ever happy with things the way that they are? I know that I am constantly changing the space that I create in. Well create might not be the right word...its been a while since I have actually had time to sit down and create, thus the my space became quite a mess. I am hoping to be able to get back to creating and scrapping memories for my kids. That being is my space!

This room used to be our dining room. All of the furniture from when it was a dining room in still in here. I am hoping to have my own space soon. IF we are ever able to do some updating to our home.
JetMax cubes that hold all my paper (well ALMOST all of it-yes that Creative Memories bag is fill of paper), stamps, ribbons, card making supplies...well you get the idea!

This is the area to the right of my table. Man it sure looked organized...but from the pictures it sure looks messy!!

And this is the area to my left.  It is made up of JetMax cubes that I put back to back.  The back side holds the things that I don't use often....refill protectors...etc.

Here is the back side of the cubes

And finally the last of the cubes....the set on the left holds all my pictures, which are in DESPERATE need of organizing!!  The right set of cubes is full of stuff for the kids to is the basket...has all kinds of kits we found at Michales they were the leftover kits from their kid crafting days.

So that is my ever changing space!!
