Blog Changes / Craft Space Makeover...

Hi everyone,

I have moved my photography from this blog over to a new blog called Photography by Pam Hardy.... you can find it here. I want to get into cardmaking as a hobby, and this is where I will share my cards, as well as other art projects like ACEO's and Mini Albums.

I am working on moving my craft work space from my small bedroom to my living room. I have ordered some furniture that will be here between 7 and 14 days, and it all has to be put together. I thought I'd give you a peek...

I forgot to take a before picture before tearing it all apart, it has changed so much over the years, but this will give you an idea. This was a few years ago, only picture I could find. Before I had my crafts stored in my 2 dressers and in a cube bookshelf in the black bins. I had a utility table as a desk. And 2 rolling carts with drawers under it.



This "Monarch L-Shaped computer Desk Set" will be for me, it will have my computer & printer on it.



I ordered 2 of these "Bestar Pro Linea armoires"... They have 5 shelves inside but I think I will get 2 extra shelves cut for inside, so that I can store a lot more inside, as all my stuff is smaller stuff. Then I am going to buy some plastic fridge binz to store my items inside and other small containers. And also a label maker to get everything organized.



Then this Monarch "48 inch Reclaimed Look Computer Desk" is for my mother's computer. She rarely uses it so doesn't need a big desk. Then I will set her computer up on my printer and sell our extra printer.

Pet Brag Book...

A friends birthday is next week and so I had some fun last night making this little pet brag book. She has 1 dog and 2 cats.

To make this book I used free scrapbook elements from Salt Town Studio - I used the Must Love Dogs and Must Love Cats Journal Cards - they come in large sizes and you can resize them, and they also come in square so that is what I used as background paper, and I used the Must Love Dogs and Must Love Cats Word Art. I also added some charms to the spine of the book, and some binder clips that she can use. And cut a few tags out.

Anything Goes challenge...

I love to watch art videos and lately I am hooked on watching very talented artists making greeting cards with a variety of techniques. When I saw that Simon Says Stamp was holding an "Anything Goes" challenge I thought I would give it a try... you can find the challenge here.

Now I have very little card making supplies, so took me a few hours to decide what would work. lol I used my only 3 colors of distress ink that I own (must get more one day soon... love it), and 1 of only 2 stamp sets I own. I need to start picking up more supplies soon... I had fun making this!

This card measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2, and was created on Strathmore Mixed Media Velum Surface 140 lb paper. I used Tim Holtz distress ink pads in 3 colors: Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint and Tea Dye. I used my square paper punch, and a butterfly stamp from a set I got at Wal-Mart, unfortunately I don't know the name, I didn't keep the packaging. I also used my Martha Stewart score board to make the outer card as I didn't have any on hand.

The colors in the top image are the closest to the actual card.

Travel Journal: IRELAND

A co-worker left to go to a new job and as a goodbye present I made her this travel journal, she will be spending some time in Ireland this year...

The cover is cardboard that I revealed the corrugated cardboard around the edges of Ireland, I then glued a piece of map scrapbook in the shape of Ireland on to it. Ireland is on the part of the map but not clearly visible. Just thought it would be cool. Then used a piece of chain split in two to dangle to charms.




Travel themed stickers.



A few tags.

Small tags




Project life printable journaling cards from the internet.





A few extra envelopes for saving small items.
The paper clips on the pages were just holding the glue and can be 
removed and used somewhere else in the journal.
