  I am Kicka (Federica), I am 38 years old and I am Italian.  I live with my boyfriend and my two cats, Birba and Romeo.  I started scrapbooking more than 10 years ago when in Italy scrapbooking does not know anything. I like strong colors and i have a great passion for the stamps. I often work on the photos of my travels, but also my family. I do not have a favourite scrapper, I like to experiment with different styles. I am part of varius scrap dt and I love the blog challenges! Happy Scrap!

Post by Ct Girl Tania Ridgwell–#6 in the series ‘Where do you create”?


Hi Tania here and today it’s my turn to share my craft space with you all.
I’m lucky enough to have my very own little craft haven.

As you can see by the photos I am slightly obsessed with my craft room being neat and tidy and everything has it’s own special home

clip_image002

I also have to confess that I have a slight hoarding problem when it comes to flowers and ribbons, I have bowls of flowers and jars of ribbons on every available surface of the room!!
I keep all my basic kit, punches, heat tools, and extra stashes of adhesives in the drawers of my desk, so they are always on hand.

The boxes on the cube shelving is where I store everything else; from flowers, embellishments, stamps, bling, paints, chipboard, collectables, card/envelope packs to embossing powders, etc. I keep all my patterned papers organized by brands on a wooden paper holder.

clip_image004

I keep all my Distress Inks & Blending Tools, Distress Stains, and Distress Paints in wooden holders that were specifically made.

clip_image006

I also store a lot of my hand held punches on towel racks where they store perfectly. The drawers to the bottom of this picture are where all my Mixed Mediums, Sprays, Paints etc are kept along with more embellishments and other goodies. I keep all my trinkets, bling and smaller flowers in little glass jars.

clip_image008

Some larger glass jars full of bulkier bling and trinkets and yes you guessed it - more flowers and ribbons

clip_image010

This is probably the messy section of my room; it’s where I put all my random bits and pieces. It has all my cardstock, Magnolia Stamps, Copics, Stampin’ Up Stamps, Kaiser Patterned Papers, assorted paper pads, A4 cardstock, Stampin’ Up Inks and underneath where the photo does not show are all my Beyond the Page items.

clip_image012

This set of shelving is where I store all my dies for my Big Shot and Spellbinders Grand Calibur Machine. I keep all my stencils/masks, paper packs, scrap paper, and large chipboard items in the pink containers in the left of the photo.

Well I think that about covers my little craft haven…….
Thanks for stopping by,
Tania xx

February Challenge Time!

 
February makes me think of hearts, flowers, red and pink - Yes, Valentines day, but that is not even close to the gorgeous colour that we have install for you this month!

This month the Creative Team at WW1 were very lucky to be gifted with some ‘Metallic melts’ from Tinby Designs to use on their challenge layout and some white resin feathers from cycloneboonty_pl_goodies that they could also use if they so desired.
Tinby custom created the colour we have just for WW1 and has it available to purchase for this month only!  You can go here to find out how!
Thankyou for your generosity ladies! You can see the melts on our layouts below being used in a myriad of ways. Amanda even used them without a heat gun by sprinkling them onto some gesso! ..

Tinby Designs have also generously given a $30 prize pack for this month too!
Cycloneboonty_pl_goodies have also donated 2 spot prizes of $5.
 
So here is your challenge colour!

International Guest Designer
Gersende  – France
layout_Gersende
gersende of france copy
hello, my name is Gersende, I am 39, I live in the north of France with my husband and 3 year old daughter (my inspiration) !! I have been scrapping for 9 years now, I make mainly layouts about my family and my daughter, I love also make cards for my family !! It is hard to choose a favourite colour, but I would say white because it is the colour that is found in almost all my projects !! I am inspired by many scrapbookers, it is impossible to give just 1 name because there are many. I look at them on pinterest or shop on blogs or personal blogs of scrappers for inspiration !!
You can see my blog here : http://scrapdegersende.canalblog.com/
Thank you very much to Janet and all the blog team for your invitation to February !!
