WOYWW #382

YAH  IT'S  WEDNESDAY and if you know about this great desk hopping around the world to check in on what everyone has been up to. If you would like to know more about this pop over to Julia's site and join in the fun and make some great new friends. 

Okay so what you have come to see is my desk but first I missed last week due to me getting a chest infection and am on antibiotics and feeling somewhat better but not 100% yet. So I haven't done anything really but before I was really ill I did start redoing my stamp storage again. I figured out I am not a binder person and the system just wasn't working for me, I prefer to flip though.

So I pulled out my FUSE tool and used heavy duty page protectors to make any size I needed and for those small stamps I cut apart the baseball card page protectors for those. I am so loving this new system but still have a way to go to finish the box sitting on the floor waiting to get there cover made.  
This is my DIY version from buying all those plastic storage that is being sold from so many 
companies and using what I have. I also have put the matching dies behind the stamp sets and am 
liking that so easy to find and all together. 

I also am showing the page protectors I used as the thin cheap ones I was using just we're not as good as these ones I bought some time back ago from staples. The tiny box underneath is for my sister Nikki some goodies for here and the box above is full a scrapbook goodies for a world wide giveaway but just will be posting it soon for all to enter and have a chance to win.

Since I really haven't done much thought I might show what is stored in the boxes piled on the bookshelf well just two of them I have a button collection on the to the left and my sequence to the right and yes this is large hoard stash but I have had some of this for about a decade. Yes time to get the boxes off the shelf and used my stash. No overly creative storage as it is only the basic photo boxes but only has one kinda item in each one I have labeled and easy to locate when I need them.

Here is my other table full of goodies I am selling just haven't posted a detailed list and took a few pictures to show and this is just some as I am still downsizing so if you see anything or need more details in the stash I spread out just email me and will sell cheap and the cost of shipping and will be happy to send it on its way. 

Thanks for visiting today and I want to say thank you for everyone who leaves such wonderful comments I enjoy each and everyone. Have a super fantastic Wednesday everyone.

WOYWW #380

I can not believe it is Wednesday already where did the time go. If you are new to our Wednesday's head over to our fearless leader Julia's, join in the fun and to learn more the link is below to her blog.

Well here is my desk really not much has changed from last week as I am still working on September challenge and it just is taking its time to get done. To the right is another wink a Stella pen and my stamp set from lawn fawn my sister gave me for my birthday and when I went for my holiday earlier this summer I picked up the die to go with it. I have left it there so I remember as soon as this layout is done I MUST start on making some Christmas cards. 

As you can see to the left is a new paper collection, well this collection is what I won and two other women won the same for completing the summer challenge for the local scrapbook store, Scrapbooks Made Simple where I live. Here is a close up of the paper pack.

It is Carta Bella Summer Loving what a great prize for all of us to win. Well really that is about it as for three days my DH and I where in the car heading down to Calgary and back for a quick meeting he had and then out to dinner for a nice  anniversary dinner before heading back home early the next morning. So that's about all I have really done and it is a short post. Thank you to everyone who visited last week and commented it really means so much to me to read them all. Have a great week and I am off to hop around to as many desks as I can. 
Hugs ~Anne

WOYWW #379

Yes it is Wednesday and this means WOYWW and if you are new to this head over to our wonderful creator Julia Stamping Ground so go check out and join the great fun all of us have every Wednesday with a great bunch of creative friends.

So to my desk.......

Here I am working on this months layout challenge for the local scrapbook store. I have a pile of stickers in the left hand corner, pulled them out from my stash and at the top is paper and stuff that came in the kit to use. I decided to make some embellisments from the paper using glossy accents and doing some fussy cutting out. And late last Wednesday I finally finished the summer challenge and here is the layout.

With the help of my oldest hole punching out the ants and glueing black sequence to there butts. The yellow flowers are extras I made and just sitting in my stash. The green grass is cut out from a Cricut cartridge and I embossed two squares and layered them under to add a napkin under the blanket. The layout sits on my album that holds all the challenges I have done over the past year. 

Haven't been up to much as I am still under the weather from last week. My DH and I are going away  to celebrate our 22sd wedding anniversary Saturday and we are leaving the kids for the weekend at home. 

I want to say thank you to everyone who visited and left me wonderful comments that I enjoy reading each one. I am off to hop around to such creative desk owners. Have a amazing Wednesday to everyone. 
Hugs ~Anne 😉
