Candace's Birthday Blog Hop !!!!

Hello, How you Bean?! Welcome to Candace's Birthday Blog Hop!

Today we are celebrating my friend and partner in crime Candace's birthday!
Many years ago Candace and I met on facebook, became friends...... she didn't seem TOO weird so we met (in a public place lol ) decided we liked each other and then decided we should go into business together.........later.... Jaded Blossom was born and the rest is history ♥
This hop is sponsored by SVG Cutting Files and Jaded Blossom!
Candace is a HARD CORE Starbucks drinker .... so I made some goodies for her
I first used outdoor vinyl and made her a personalized cup.
Of course I made her hubby one too so he wouldn't be jealous ~ hehehe
these are double walled 20 oz cups

Next I bought a big class container at Target (another favorite spot of hers)
and etched a personalized emblem on it

I then filled it with 3 dozen Starbucks pods in her FAVORITE flavor ♥

I used the Jaded Blossom Treat tag die and Jaded Blossom "Java Time" stamp set
of course there's a gift card under it for her to help feed her addiction lol
I used Lovebug creations rumple ribbon to tie it on

FREE for TODAY only 24 hours and ends promptly at 12 midnight PST

NEW Scrap Studio pictures !!!

HI Everyone !!
I wanted to share my NEW Jaded Blossom inspired Scrap Studio with you.
Recently my girls wanted their own rooms so I traded with my daughters so I could have the bigger room since they aren't sharing anymore.
Here's a picture I took with my phone since it has panoramic

 This side of the room has my printer, and wide format printer and inks
also the Ikea carts have Jaded Blossom store stamps in them ♥
This was a empty nook and my husband built a bunch of shelves in it for me to store the Jaded Blossom stamps !!! I used a fabric shower curtain to hide them when I'm not filling orders.

This is a view of the closet from where I sit I have cubes from Michael's in there with items I don't use all the time.

The back side of my custom made island. I bought all the cabinets from home depot and the hardware (I still have 2 more knobs to put on)
My friends boyfriend put them together for me, he used 2 pieces of MDF for the top then I covered it in material and topped it with a piece of custom cut glass.

My cricut carts, some ribbon and my copics on the top of the Ikea 4x4 cube

Ikea has drawers you can buy that fit inside the individual cubes perfectly !!!
This is all my rumple ribbon in this drawer

Here is the full Ikea 4x4 cube unit. The sturdy teal cubes are from Target (these are much more sturdier than the ones Ikea sells)

Close up of my twine..... yes its addicting !!

Here's my fiber shelf my friends hubby built for me
I store, fiber, tulle, burlap, twine, flat punches and my buttons on it
(the jars with my buttons in them are from Walmart)

In these bins I store office type supplies I need for shipping, picture cds, and project life type papers etc...

On the end of the custom made island I bought these rods from Ikea and my hubby installed them for me to hang my punches.
The hanging cups and baskets are also from Ikea

My curtains were purchased on clearance at Bed Bath and Beyond !

This is the wall between the door and the bathroom.
This shelf is from Ikea as well and the cubes from Michaels.
This paper cubes are for 12x12 stacks
I also hang my mats on the back of the door using command hooks

View from the door as you walk in

The back side of the island, peg board and holds all the wires and outlets.
I also hang a couple mats here because my Cameo is used in this spot.

Yes this 5x5 cube system is from Ikea as well.
I bought a 1x5 too and my husband secured the back to make it all one piece!
The white boxes at the top are from Ikea and hold altered items I don't use all the time.

Inside the closet on the other side I have cubes where I store vinyl, big shot dies, duplicate 6x6 stacks, and holiday paper and embellishments.

Here is what my island table looks like most of the time, when I'm working.
I LOVE that I can sit or stand which is better on my back.

Next to my work station I have drawers to hold all my scraps. Its nice to have it close and accessible

Another view from the door

I used some of the shelves for washi tape and flowers
This I had in my old room, cubes from Michaels and the top just a piece from Lowes that I had them cut to make a table top!!!

This is one of my projects I haven't completed yet.
This huge spinner tray will be spray painted and set on the shelf above.
I bought this at Harbor Freight
My Jaded Blossom stamps right by my chair so I can grab them easily
I need to have my daughter alphabetize them !! lol

My cardstock and paper
Top shelf is mostly PaperTrey and Stampin up cardstock
2nd shelf is 12x12 patterned paper mostly Echo and Carta Bella
3rd shelf has all my 6x6 pads
Yes I still need to label all my stuff ..... its on the list lol

Where I sit, I like this chair found it at Marshals !!
It goes up and down and swivels so I can easily get out and light to put it under the counter top

So here is it again! !! Im soooo happy with how it turned out.
I bought the paint colors from Lowes for a JADED BLOSSOM blue inspired room !!!
