Colour Combos!

Have you ever wanted to begin a project, but became bewildered due to the colour choices? 
It happens to me ALL the time!

Its frustrating- because there are SO many gorgeous Stampin' Up! colours to choose from! (Oh! its a hard life!! LOL)

Besides going on Pinterest and seeing all the great colour combinations out there, Stampin' Up! has a great tool to help you called Colour Coach


A combo I saw on Ink It Up with Jessica that I liked was this nice soft winter color combo




What is your favorite colour combo?
Leave me a comment or post a picture on my Facebook page "Stamp with Karen"

Craftroom Organization

Seriously so in love with Nikk's craftroom, there is so many different stations, I think I need to tell hubby we need to move to a house with a big bonus room, like hers. Lol She has lots of good info, she does not do the same crafts as me but wonderful ideas.  I will need to borrow my friends Label machine, either that or get one of my own 


I started this a few weeks ago but never published, I have since then dismantled my room again, seem to do this every month.  Hubby was nice and bought me a 8 cube shelving unit and a desktop organization spinner, still not happy with layout and wish I could have some of the Stampnstorage units but until I move to the USA it wont be happening.  But in the meantime I am happy that hubby lets me take over 3 rooms in the house with all my stash.


Well room is still in disaray so no cardmaking today, but if we get energized I just might be able to make a birthday card for brother-in-law and nephew.

Have a great day!
Hugs, Karen

What's my Name?

Happy Wednesday my crafty friends!

Have you ever struggled with your blog/FB page/company name, that is where I find myself today. For some reason I just cannot decide what to call myself, I have been going back and forth with Handmade Creations by Karen and Stamp with Karen neither one really grabs me nor feels right.

I had others in mind but have already been taken and for the life of me I cannot come up with one I like or really reflects me. I love stamping, am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, love tea and cats.

What are your thoughts or suggestions.

Hugs, Karen
