My Personal Crafting Chaos

A CASE of Thanks

There are so many fantastic stamp sets coming out for the holiday season.  We are definitely spoiled for choice.  I am really trying to control my urge to buy them all. One set from Wplus9 that caught my attention is ‘Autumn Leaves’. It has a good variety of leaf stamps in various sizes with solids & outlines.  I don’t have anything like it and could be used for any season/occasion.  The card is a case from one of the designers, Kara Vrabel.  You can find the original card here and Kara’s blog at here.

The inks and patterned paper are from Stampin’ Up and the base cardstock is PaperTreyInk’s Stampers Select.  I also used the coordinating die set.

This next card is the same layout but using a different color configuration for the leaves.

I have been on vacation for the last several days and spending most of my time crafting.  It has been just wonderful. Thanks for stopping by.  Any constructive feedback regarding the blog would be greatly appreciated. Definitely could use some tips on photographing.

Hugs & Happy Crafting. Jacqueline

New Blog New Blogger

Welcome to BlueRoomCrafts!!!

Hello all, My name is Jacqueline and I finally decided to bite the bullet and start a blog.  I have spent some time listening to successful bloggers and the one thing that really made sense to me is to blog for the right reasons.  My main reason is simple.  To have a way to share my crafty creations and participate in crafting activities online, i.e. blog hops, challenges etc.  I have tried to do it without a blog and have just found it to be cumbersome.

I mostly stamp & create cards. So to start things off I thought I would just post a few projects I have created.

I created this card for Sandy Allnock’s Go For The Gold class.  I used a kraft card stock & added double sided tape circles with gold foiling.  The stamp set & die is Big Bloom by Winnie & Walter for Simon Says Stamps’ Stamptember event.  I did not have any gold crackle product so I used Ranger’s crackle accents and mixed in gold perfect pearls.  No sure were the twine is from but it is a neutral twine w/ gold thread.

I am a nurse in my real life and so have an extensive collection of nurse/medical themed craft products.  The main image is by Mo Manning, colored with Copic markers.

This tag is made with Julie Nutting’s paper dolls.  I really love playing with these.  I guess it satisfies my inner child. Well, in reality I am just a little kid in a grown up body.

Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that you will follow along with me as I take this blog journey.  As with any journey the best part is not the destination but the journey itself.

Hugs & Happy Crafting, Jacqueline
