Creative Spaces Vol. 3 Blog Hop, plus TWO GIVEAWAYS!

The latest edition of Creative Spaces is out! 

Where you create can definitely inspire what you create, and this best-selling special issue is back again with even more room inspiration, storage and d├ęcor projects, and behind-the-scenes peeks at dozens of crafting spaces. We'll also show you how to get these inspiring looks with easy and inexpensive do-it-yourself approaches that are both beautiful and practical. No matter how your space is sized, Creative Spaces will help you make the most of what you have.

You can purchase a copy of the issue here: http://www.papercraftsmag.com/articles/Creative-Spaces--Vol--3.  Get ready to drool over all the gorgeous craft spaces! 

This fabulous issue includes many great ideas for craft room storage and decor.  I had the pleasure of decorating a Kaisercraft House of Drawers that appears in this issue. The set of drawers came unassembled, so I first assembled the pieces to get this:


Then I altered it with Melissa Frances papers and other goodies and this was my final result:

 

GIVEAWAY:  The generous gals at Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking are allowing me to give away prizes to TWO of my blog readers.  One winner will get the assembled version of the Kaisercraft House of Drawers (the plain, undecorated version shown two photos above, not my altered version immediately above), and the other winner will receive the unassembled version that needs to be constructed.  BOTH winners will also receive a copy of the issue!  To be entered to win, please leave a comment here on this post before Sunday, June 28th.  Sorry, the prizes can only be shipped to US addresses.

If you're following along the Blog Hop, here is the list of participants:

Stacy Cohen--You are here!
  

Don't forget to leave a comment here for a chance to win either the assembled or unassembled Kaisercraft House of Drawers, plus a copy of the new Creative Spaces Vol. 3 issue (US residents only).
