WOYWW # 311

To know why the mess is on display head over to our hostess Julia's blog and find the link up for all the desker's sharing this week.
 So this first photo was taken sometime Sunday after lunch during the clean up before the dress cards were made... I had caught part of the HSN program last week with these Aqua brushes from Crafters Companion and went and poked around in their site ( because, they ship for free on 50.00 orders instead of paying shipping on each piece you want from hsn...) and this box of happy mail showed up friday. there is one 6" embossing folder and one brick die. ( which I was unsuccessful in getting to cut out the whole way) so, later I will try again with you know wax paper and a metal shim and the whole 9 yards all the intricate dies need in my big shot) (on the tv they cut one out with some kind of electronic cutter.) also in the mess are price tags that had been removed from things people bought at the booth. and the label tags that were tied onto baskets of stuffs.

I have not really had time to play this week but, I did get the markers out of the packaging. I need to make some kind of a cheat sheet for them. I did try them on some smooth Neenah and that just pilled up really bad using water with those markers on that cardstock. so, sometime I will make time to stamp on watercolor paper and try again. that particular image on the desk was colored with copic markers. towards the back are some birds I had seen on someone's pinterest board that I think I will try coloring the tim holtz crazy birds in some time. ( have not gotten that far) and that's about it. ( its still Wednesday in my part of the world)

You can purchase a base plate now for sizzix that helps to cut the intricate dies beautifully.


watch the you tube link, honestly it is fantastic and yes I have one. Bestie had a spellbinders die that would not cut in any machine hers or mine and I have 4 machines, the same die which was mine cut perfectly but hers seemed to be faulty. Well after getting this plate not one problem, perfect cut first time. Really worth the money as other dies are so much easier to cut and not hassle free. Check it out and let me know what you think. you can email me elizabethanneharms at yahoo dot com

Have a great week
Hugs Eliza and Yoda 73

Hiya Stacy,

Thanks so much for popping over to mine already :)

I think I need to do one of those sheets for all my pencils as I quite often just go straight in with no clue what the actual colour is - my Inktense I used what I thought was a brown and it was actually a deep reddish purple! Whoops! So - good idea!

I guess I didn't get over to visit you last week. I groaned at the cheat sheet of the markers you have on your desk. I had one, lost it. I've waited a couple of weeks for it to show up but no love. I finally had to make another one because I am so lost without it. Of course then the lost one shows right back up. Ugh. Anyway, sounds like you have some fun new toys to play with. Enjoy!
