WOYWW : 174

Well, it's a pretty clean desk today.  This is the calm after the storm. Oh I wish I had snapped a pic of the storm!  I'm really getting into metals and little bits of construction and this the beginnings of that.  Trying out attaching a vintage handle and a coin holder.  I think assemblage (did I spell that right?) may be in my future!  To the right is a roll of gorgeous vintage lace I had just used.  Can you see the photo corners towards the back.  I had to buy those.  I must have 500 bazillion photo corners somewhere, but I can't find them. I know when I have to buy photo corners that it's time to reorganize.  purge.  and make note of my stock.

OK!  So what caused the storm the days before?  I was working with this gor.geous papercrafting kit from JBS Mercantile:

so pretty - so colorful - so much fun

The Mercantile will be offering cutting files now with their Papercrafting Kits.  This month's cutting file works with the exclusive stamp in the kit:

and here's what I've made so far:

this is a layout with old horrible photos - but it's not about the photos here!

I used both version of the cutting file - there's the doily shape and the doily outline in the kit - both - and I just love that design!

And then ... I found an old throw away water-proof camera ... that we had never brought in to develop the photos  ... and a fun day at the amusement park was found ... my boys will get such a kick out of this:

Is this photo hilarious or what?!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a creative day!

  4. Gracious, coin holders...talk about what goes around comes around! I really like the doily stamp and cut...really great on your LO.

  5. Aw, I didn't realize those were pics you have never seen before! How cool. I have two throw away cameras that my kids had at pre-school for the teachers to snap some pics throughout the year that I have not developed yet. i really want to know what's on there!

    All your work with the kit is wonderful! I'm a pharmgirl fan!

    Oh yeah, your photo corners are my grommets/eyelets and eyelet setter. It's driven me to the brink that they have been completely eaten by my scraproom.


I love sharing creative stuff and would love to visit your blog! Thanks for stopping by!
