WOYWW #286

If your wondering why the mess is on display, head over to Julia's blog and read all the details on how you can play along. 

so, these are tuesday night after work views under the artificial lights ( again ) I have not cleaned up all the way from all the last minute booth things I made but, I had killed some time in a craft store ( 80 miles from my house ) on tuesday waiting for Costco to finish printing photos...

what followed me home was some red & gray fancy pants corrugated papers ( 5 for a dollar GASP) and some brown, ( have not cut into that yet) and this MME red gingham papers... the deer and stocking were already made and just waiting to be used. 

Just some different angles. all of these desk shots were taken with my cell phone. 

the deer is an Sizzix die cut, I did rub some vintage photo distress ink onto this. the sentiment is an Unity Stamps one. 

The stocking (SU) is heat embossed with SU white on Kraft and the Joy is from Stampendous, and that wood stamp... that is from Gina K designs and stamped on the inside of this one. the lace is vintage. 

This one the hearts are die cut with the primitive Sizzix die from some recollections paper I had sprayed with Gold Heidi Swapp color shine last week. the edges were lined with a krylon paint pen. but, the Cool thing on this is the dymo label LOVE sentiment... mine disappeared over a year ago and I have not found it yet. ( and since I kept it in a bucked on the table with deco scissors its kinda a Hmmm, thing) ( makes me wonder if I lent it to someone and then forgot ) So, the part that makes that cool is... I have been searching for a new one for some time now and am always told they don't make it anymore... they have them on Amazon if you need one. This one is only 5 1/2" square in real life.

They are so lovely, Stacy. Thanks for ideas for using corrugated card - I've got lots but couldn't think of what to do with it. Have a great week, Chris # 8

Oh Stacy, those cards are so beautiful! You've given me some ideas too.
I smiled at you losing the letter thingy. It will turn up as soon as you buy another one! In England they call that: Sod's law!
Thanks for letting me look over your shoulder,
Sorry I'm a bit late but I always take my time and I love to look and read, click on links etc and that sometimes takes me all week!
Have a good one,

Hi Stacy,

I see you used your time well while waiting for photos...... funny how THAT happens! Your cards are pretty. Love the deer die cut.

I've had my Thanksgiving meal so it was a perfect time to visit desks - either that or take a nap!!

Thank you for visiting me already! Happy belated WOYWW

Yep, there's been a right old resurgence in the Dymo and similar machines..Artemio make a nice craft one with different fonts on them too..yum! Love the gingham on your cards, and the bargain ribbed card..bet they didn't see how clever you'd get with it when they thought it was only worth 20c a sheet!
