WOYWW 543....

Good morning my friends!  Here we are back to Wednesday and this is the day I show  you my work space.  I have to tell you my desk has been like this for a few days, as I just haven't taken the time to come back in here and clear stuff away.  It sits patiently by waiting for me to have the time to spend here.  It seems I have been quite lazy and then for a couple of days I have been busy so I'm hoping today will be different.

So what have you been into?  Show us your space!  We would love you to join us.  Just take a photo of your space and link your blog to Julia's blog and off we go!  All the instructions are on her blog, so it isn't hard at all to  become one of us!

I purchased this Crafters Companion Foilpress machine a month or so ago and I still haven't got it all worked out in my brain but I'm determined that this time I will  make it work.  It seems to be a bit hard to figure out the equation of seconds to die size but I'm getting close.  The foil die that is lying there on the press is a Merry Christmas die with lots of pretty swirls and will be beautiful on a card but so far I just haven't made it work.  Very close  but no cigar!  I did get the Christmas tree to work and made a card with it so I have had some success.  I'm nogt giving up; I'm determined!

Well that is all for me this morning.  I'm off to Julia's to link up and begin my stroll through the participating blogs!

What's on Your Workdesk? Week #542....

Pardon me while I do a bit of dusting and brushing away of the cobwebs as I haven't been here for a whole week!  Just been doing my own thing and not posting here at all!  But now it is time for me to photograph my workdesk and share with you what is happening here!  If you would like to become one of us just head over to Julia's blog and have a look around the instructions for linking your blog to the hop are listed there and we would love to have you with us!

The state of my desk is shocking really, as I should be in full on Christmas mode but I'm just not feeling it!  I did make 3 Christmas cards earlier this week and a few more of the little boxes but nothing that was worthy of a photo shoot!  I will wait and wait until I become like a deer in the headlights and then I will really begin to mean business.  My attention span is so short and there are too many things here to distract me!

Well that is it for me this morning!  I'm off to link up and have a look around over at Julia's

WOYWW #541.....

Good morning friends!  We have come full circle back to Wednesday once again.  It seems the weeks are just flying by and I can hardly keep up.  If you wonder why I show a picture of my desk this morning just head over to Julia's Blog and have a look around.  It is a wonderful blog hop and includes fellow crafters from all over the world.  Come join us!  The instructions for linking your desk are on Julia's blog and we would love to have you become one of us! 

I have begun making little 2" square boxes for the nursing home!  They can be used to house little gifts for bingo and such and it is just a tiny bit I can do to give back.  If one of my little  creations brightens the day of one of the residents then I have achieved what I set out to do.  I will be doing lots more of these and then for Christmas I'm doing kleenex box covers for some of them.  I have so many papers and this will be a good way to use it up.  I have more paper than I can possibly use before I die so it is time to start cutting into it!

Well that is it for me...I'm off to link up and visit as many of my fellow deskers as I can.

Shaped Card and Matching Box....

Good morning my friends!  I hope you are getting ready to face the week and that all is well in your world.  As for me and mine, we are fine and enjoying the Fall temps finally!  It is 48 degrees here this morning and such a welcome thing!

I'm here this morning to share a shaped card and matching box using Heartfelt Creations papers and the new stamps and dies I received.

I used Backyard Blossoms papers and flowers along with the new Swirly Accent Spray Die and the Large Oval Die.  These flowers are on the retiring list and I wanted to use them again before they are gone.  I'm sort of like a walking advertisement for Heartfelt Creations and I use their products every day like many of you do.  Now onto the matching box.

I really love this yellow paper but it is getting very limited in my envelope as I have used this collection quite a bit.  The box is 6 1/2 X 6 1/2 and just perfect for housing my 6 X 6 card.  I hope you enjoy my creations and if you haven't purchased this collection and think you might want it, hurry because when it is gone it is gone!

Well friends, that is it for me this morning.  I hope your day is a good one and that you find time to be creative!  I'm off to get started on a project I have up my sleeve then later I hope to spend a bit of time outdoors in the wonderful Fall sunshine!

WOYWW #540....

Good morning friends!  We have once again made it to Wednesday and that means it's time for me to share my work space with you.  If you would like to join us just head over to Julia's blog and have a look around.  She has the instructions for linking your blog and then you can show us what you are doing.  It's always such fun and I love hearing from everyone and getting to have a look at everyone's desk.   

My desk is clean this morning so I didn't take a photo of that but I decided I would share another Christmas card and box I have made.  Slowly my pile of C cards is growing and I'm hoping to be finished soon.  I don't do them all at once anymore, I just do them one here and one there.  They are coming together. 

We are finally beginning to experience a little of the Fall temps in our area.  We actually had a few showers over the last couple of days.  We have been so very dry and the rain is very much appreciated.  It's 59 degrees this morning so I have hope that Fall is here.

Well that does it for me this morning.  I'm off to link up and then visit as many of you as I can.

Sharing Another Backyard Blossoms Creation.......

Good Monday morning my friends!  I'm here this morning to share another of my Backyard Blossoms creations with you.  I made a whole bunch of these flowers after having been inspired by Emma Lou's video on the Heartfelt Creations Facebook page.  I do love these flowers and wanted to use them on a few cards and boxes so now I want to share.

I also used some of the Backyard Blossoms paper collection and  the Ornate Pocket Accents Die as well.  I think it made a beautiful piece and it will be going into my stash for my Birthday cards!
I am definitely a Heartfelt Creations girl and use their products on almost all I do!  How about you?

Tissue Box Cover.....

Good morning friends and Happy Friday!  As this week is drawing to a close I wanted to jump in and share a tissue box cover I made this week.  I've had a very busy time this week with a little bit of time spent in my craft room so over the next few days I have many things to show you.  To start off my tissue box cover.  I really love these boxes as you can decorate in so many ways and they are such a nice thing to have around. 

I used Heartfelt Creations Backyard Blossoms paper collection and flowers to dress it up.  The die cut is a very old one from Heartfelt Creations retired long ago but still loved so I decided to drag it out and dust it off.  I hope you enjoy my little creation as much as I enjoyed making it!

WOYWW #539.....

Good morning friends!  Wednesday has rolled around again and it's once again time for What's On Your Workdesk...Wednesday #539.  Each Wednesday we get together and have a lovely blog hop of sorts and we can visit each other and see what we have going on in each other's world.  There are many different kinds of crafting going on and it's always fun to have a little snoop!  Julia is the hosting blog and you are most welcome if you would love to join us!

My desk is showing a jumble of things as I purchased some of the new release dies from Heartfelt Creations and I've been playing with them.  I really love the pretty edge dies and the book die is to die for!  I just couldn't resist!  The pretty embossed piece of cardstock is a Crafters Companion Embossing folder and I really love it as well.  And of course my blue painters tape that I use to tape down my dies before I run them through my die cutting machine. 

Well that does it for me this morning.  I'm off to link up to Julia's blog and then to visit as many of the participating blogs as I can before my coffee runs out!  Have a lovely day and a great rest of the week!
