What's on your Workdesk? Wednesday 174

Oh my goodness! its over a month since I last joined in with WOYWW and although I haven't got much to show you, I am glad I am back!


Yesterday the postman popped the Memory Box Snowy Border through my door - I love it!  I tried it using greaseproof paper between the die and the card as I heard it makes the card release easier.  It works brilliantly! You can also see the Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia and the Frame Leaf  from Lean Creatief.  I have had both these sets for a while but not tried them yet so that is what I will be doing next.  If you want to join in and pop round some crafty desks then Julia's is the place to go.  Have a good week and thank you for visiting my desk.  Take care.  Christine xx

Hi Christine, that Memory Box die is my favourite for Christmas - it looks beautiful cut from glitter card. Just got my poinsettia out too as I am doing Christmas cards too. Very organised desk today. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #13

Chris why is your desk so tidy I am so jealous! I had a major tidy up a week ago and now it just looks the same as before!! I keep telling my DH its because I don't have enough storage space!! Love this border I have resisted so far but don't know for how much longer x

Jackie said...

That border is beautiful; it's so delicate. Can't wait to see how you use them.

I have just this week bought the Layered Poinsettia Nestie- I thought it might make me look like I was about to start Christmas cards! Just have to start cutting them out now, the whole plan may fall apart here.Have a great week, Shaz #58

I must give that a go myself with the greeseproof paper. I also saw someone use foam and it stays there permanately then you never have to worry about the greeseproof paper again. Interesting must investigate... Nice tidy desk. Just over 10 weeks to Christmas, must get on with the cards.

Oh, thanks, Christine, now that's ANOTHER die to add to my "must have" list! It's a beauty and I'm glad to hear the wax paper trick works. I haven't tried it yet. Hugs, Darnell #145

Sorry I am a week behind. Glad you found the paper release works, it makes so much difference doesn't it. I save the bit and use it until it gets too tatty.
Hope you are well this morning and ready to make ore "C" cards.
Hugs, neet xx

Very tidy desk! Thank you for the greaseproof paper tip, will have to try this. Would love to see the Poinsetta die made up, may have to invest in this.

Hugs

Nothing to be afraid of with Pan Pastels - they give great coverage and are so quick for backgrounds. Try swiping the colour all over, then stamp with Versamark a design on and re-swipe with the sae colour or a different one.
Hugs, Neet xx
