Craft Room Re-organization Part Three: Bulletin Board & Project Display

Over the past few months I've been revamping my stamping studio and the other day I worked on improving my display and bulletin board space. 

In the past my bulletin board area has looked like this.  Usually I just post all the new promos and contact information on it and had some things displayed on the fireplace mantle below it.  Not very exciting or interesting.
So I decided to make my board and display a little more trendy.  
Here's what it looks like today.  I've taken away all the "newsy" stuff and created a binder which includes all the information my friends need to know about the latest products and promotions.  The revamped bulletin board now displays samples made with some of the latest products like the Bow Big Shotz Die, etc. and 3-dimensional projects on the mantle top.   I plan on updating and changing the displays based on the season or celebration. 
In the right hand corner of this picture you will see a collection from The Wetlands stamp set.  This is some fabulous Card Candy I received from Laura H.H. Zaraza in a swap at Convention earlier this summer (see previous note on Convention Goodies posted in August). 

I've had a lot of comments on this package of card candy since I put it on display.  Because of this I'm thinking about doing either a class or if enough interest is generated, a Card Candy club in the spring featuring different stamp sets. If you live in my area in Abbotsford, BC would you be interested in attending such a club or a class? Let me know by adding a comment to this post.
The card candy above features stamped images from the Wetlands stamp set that are pre-coloured and mounted on cardstock and already for adding to a project whether it be a card or a scrapbook page.  This is a really fun way of having materials on hand when you need a fast and easy card.  But don't have time to sit down and make it from scratch.  Card candy also makes a great gift for friends and fellow stampers.  Hint. Hint.

Another favourite on my board are the bows and gift card holders.  These gift card samples are modelled after the one Shelley made at Convention this summer.  

Post It Note Pad, Candy Treat and Gift Box
I hope you enjoyed looking at this revamp.  I've been trying to keep my room updated and clutter free and finishing this project made me feel so good. Thanks for viewing and leave me a comment if you enjoyed this post.
