My poor little craft space (spare bedroom) is bursting at the seams with its mismatched old cupboards and shelves.  I decided to free up some space by getting some pieces of metal and some magnet.  I stuck the thin metal sheets onto the walls with "no more nails" and stuck the magnets onto different things with a hot glue gun.  I have also bought some Tesco magnetic knife strips which I still need to fix to the wall and be able to stick my scissors etc onto it.  I also would like some more metal to attach my glitters onto but am now running out of spare wall space.

Some offcuts of galvanised metal with my mica powders and some reinkers attached with magnets

The well fill metal sheet with my ink dusters and you can just see my stickles also attached.

Metal sheet just visible with inks stuck onto it.

This is my best embossing powders stuck onto the metal sheets. I didn't want to hide the names but wish I had put the magnets onto the lid so I could see the colours. I can just about see the colours and put them all into colour families.

Another view of my embossing powders. There are lots of the Moon Glow gorgeous 2 tone embossing powders and some various makes of glitter embossing powder.

I fixed some of the metal sheets to the underside of some of my shelves and this is perfect to stick some of my small inkpads (versa magic chalk inks) onto.

This is one of the shelves with my Sizzix dies on but the underside has some inkpads stuck on.

Another view of the Sizzix shelf with inpads stuck on the underside.

Inkpads again on the underside of a shelf.

Yet more inkpads stuck onto underside of shelf.  The glitter embossing paste actually have more room to be able to remove without knocking all the inkpads down!

Oyster Stamps Elegant Lacy Card

I was lucky enough to be picked out the draw for a pack of Oyster Stamps Elegant Lacy Circle Cards and Envelopes.  These are lovely large size and with fancy cut outs and with several folds.

I also used Crafter Companion Vines Embossing Folder, Memory Box "La Rue Flourish" and  "Floral Circle" a variety of Tim Holtz distress inks and various floral Spellbinder dies.  The sentiment (and mat) is from Craftwork Cards.  The jewel brads through the flowers are some from Papermania which I have had in my stash for ages.
