Pretty dresses all in a row

I've been wanting to do this ever since Stampin' Up! had a similar one on the cover of our Stampin Success Magazine that we as Demonstrator receive. 
 I used the New DSP Epic Day that is part of the bundle for the "This and That" or sold separately.  I'm LOVIN it! 
 Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Soft Suede are a few of the color used!  What a great combo!
The DSP is behind the glass and the Oval (Which are cut using the Big Shot and the Oval Collection Framelits ) are on top of the glass.  That way when I feel the urge to change it up a bit it is easy to disassemble for a fresh look.
The Dresses are made with the Dress Up Framelits Dies 
What fun it is to create the "outfits" that my cute forms are wearing.  
Thanks for looking!  Please stop back by!

Where I "Get" to work each Day!

 Thought I'd share a bit of my world with you.  I have just added these Ikea cabinets to my Stamp room.  I got in on a great deal on these but sad news is that one of my Friends who I would have not met except through Stamping is moving away...:(  You will be missed, Kris.
I I have done the last few days is get the Labels on them.  I used the Big Shot and the Apothecary Accents Framelits # 127003 to cut Chalk board paper ( this was a last years SAB Gift) and Labeled them... Some just say "Stuff"

 Others do have exactly what is inside!  I'm thrilled.
 The 5th Cabinet is next to my Big Shot Station and I have my dies sitting on top!  
 This is the view when you walk in and my new cabinets are on the left and right.
Now here is my workstation... Yep  pretty messy, but for me it's pretty clean....I am an extremely messy stamper and crafter. 
 I never stop to put things back, but that is my new goal!
Thanks for stopping by.  Now when you see my Creations you will know 
where I was when it all started.  
I'll be doing another session of what is in the drawers, So Stay tuned.
