A Crafty Space and Yvonne

Hello friends

Today featuring another crafty space for us to admire, 
today it is Sue Dunn's craft room in her conservatory.
It's definitely packed with some wonderful craft goodies.
Sue mentions that it is lovely to have the light all through the year, 
but gets a bit hot in the summer.  I used to craft in my conservatory so I totally appreciate this.
Thank you Sue for sharing your crafty space, I particularly like your
white wooden drawer storage, looks very swish :)

Not too late to submit photos of your crafty space, just email your
photos to

Other news:  I am currently stocking Card-io stamps,
these are the tiny stamps that you mount onto acrylic stamp pegs and 
they work beautifully with Versa Color ink pads.
My good friend and fellow Spellbinders designer, Yvonne van de Grijp
(check out her blog here) has used the stamps to create some amazing cards.
(It is no secret that I'm not a great stamper so when she kindly offered I bit her hand off!)
This one features Oriental Blossom.
 Love this one - especially those little candy canes - the stamp set is called
 And because she knows I'm a tag addict...
Poinsettias and Peppermints again and Greenery 1 - such elegant simplicity to this one.
I will be featuring more soon - huge thanks to Yvonne.
You can see the entire Card-io stamp range here.

Take care friends.

Good morning Christine,
Yvonne's cards are beautiful, will check out the stamps later and the acrylic pegs look really useful too.
Sue's craft room looks great, very organised, I have the same cubed shelving, which is so handy.

Hi Christine.
Sue's crafty space is so neat and organised, I bet she loves to shut herself away in there and craft, lucky thing : )
Yvonne has created a beautiful Christmas card, I love her stamping with the Card-io stamps.
Have a good day. Take care.

Live the pics of Sues crafty space-very organised, it's so nice to see where others crafters sit & create.

The cards/tags look fab, i've seen Cardio at a few craft shows and their products + sample cards always look amazing. Sadly, i'm not much of a stamper either.

Hi Christine.
Love Sue's crafty space. So many goodies and so tidy.
Love today's cards. I love the card-io stamps. Have some from years ago when they were made of wooden pegs but they still get an outing now and again.
Love Val in Spain x

Morning Christine,
I do envy people that have a dedicated craft space, I really miss mine which I lost when we moved to our small bungalow, now crammed into a very small place.
Love Yvonne's cards I have looked at these stamps for a long time and debated to buy or not to buy.

Yvonne's cards are very pretty - I also like the cardio stamps although I have the older ones that are on a wooden peg. They are very versatile.

Hi Christine
Lovely cards today. I really must use my wooden peg stamps that it have a few sets of, it's been a long time since they saw daylight!
Sue's craft room looks fab, very compact but so neat. I'm looking forward to my new craft room when we move house, so I really enjoy seeing everyone else's to get some ideas. Pinterest is a great place that too.
Enjoy your day.

Another great craft space. I love looking where other people craft so thank you to Sue for sharing.
I adore Card-io stamps. I saw them being demo-ed at a stamp show and bought a set. They are so useful and Yvonne's samples are stunning.

Morning Christine, I like those white storage units too! What a tidy crafting space. I've got quite a few of the Cardio stamps, they make you look good as it's so easy to produce something pretty.
