What's on your workdesk Wednesday, 125

Happy Wednesday!

This week I have just finished (!) the scrapbook commission, so my desk has got pretty much completed scrapbook pages on it, with just a few embellishments to be added.  These are the bath time and one half of the first birthday (double page spread) pages.  I can't remember where the papers etc are from I just raided what was in the cupboard, but the lovely felt whale was a bargain find at the works book shop.  I'm just waiting for my lovely other half to take some nice photos of them for my website etc then I shall send it off.  Hopefully it won't be too long as the poor lass has been waiting ages for it (good job I know her!). 

 
 Then I had to make an anniversary card for my brother and his missus.  I was pleased with how it turned out so I decided to make a batch of similar ones to try and build up some stock.


Hope to get round a few more desks again this week (do I say that every week?!)  Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop over to Julia's place for a good nosey around at everyone elses works in progress.

Less is more, week 38

I've been having a bit play with some card making today as I think it's about time to start building up my stock so I can start trying to sell some stuff.  Then while catching up on blogs I discovered that this week's "less is more" challenge involves polka dots, which by complete co-incidence I had included in my designs today.  I've been thinking about taking part in less is more for a few weeks now as it seems to suit my design style, so that must be fate!  So here is my first submission:



I embossed the card stock with a cuttlebug template and added some white ribbon, I downloaded this gorgeous tag template (from design selective) added some text and printed it onto pearlescent card then added a fabric covered wooden heart embellishment.

What's on your workdesk Wednesday 124

Hello again woyww'ers.  I'm still busy with the scrapbook that I was working on last week.  I've only got one layout to do now, but am waiting for an email back to clarify some stuff otherwise it would have been finished today.  This page is about first food/weaning involving carrots. I've used an old calendar tab to highlight the date and I've made these carrots to put at the side of the page.  I used some slightly patterered papers and drew the various elements on them, sticking each layer ontop of the other one, I'm quite pleased with how they turned out.

I am now struggling with adding an extra page into the book.  It's post bound and I've tried to unscrew it to add an extra page but the screw-heads aren't going anywhere!  I think I'm doing it right as I've tried it with another book and they came off straight away, so maybe I've got a book where you can't add pages, it seems to have all the extra flaps etc though, which makes it look like it would. Hey-ho, I shall take it to my dads tonight and get him to have a look at it (is there anything Dads can't do?)

If you want to see what everyone else is busy creating this week then pop over to Julia's blog.

And for those who just pop by on a Wednesday and have been watching my work on my sisters wedding stationery I finally uploaded pictures yesterday if you want to have a look at my previous post.

Bye for now!

Wedding stationery - the reveal!

Well the wedding is now truly over so I am free to show you the stationery I have been teasing you with over the past few months.  The colour theme was mint and aqua to match the bridesmaids dresses, which were by Kelsey Rose (this is the dress but in the wrong colour!) and the embossed flower (cuttlebug stylised flower) was chosen to reflect the flower on these dresses.

So here we go....

What's on your workdesk Wednesday 123

I'm back having taken last week off to recover from making all the wedding stuff (photos to follow soon).  This week on my work desk, window sill and dining room table is some scrapbooking, which I've been promising to finish forever, there's still a way to go though!



This page is about the baby's family, it was a bit of a struggle to fit all those photos on but I got there eventually.


The above 2 photos just demonstrate my ability to spread my work around the entire house (I've not included a photo of the stairs which I also ended up putting stuff on!)  Lots of boxes of yummy scrapbook papers and scraps and my trusty paper trimmer which I've had for absolutely years.

Want to see what else is happening on other desks around the world this week? Then head off to Julia's blog.  I've just received a mega envelope of newly developed photos to sort through so I'm off make a start on that -


- I may be some time..... bye for now!
