WOYWW #208

Wanted to share a storage idea I have for my embossing folders. I needed something that would be moble and beautiful on my cutting station. I found this bag at Hobby Lobby Monday for 50% off.  So Now when I get ready to head to Florida I can just pick it up and go. I'm gradually working in my color scheme of pink & brown.
This is The Paper Studio bag that I purchased and it holds my collection of embossing folders.  The handles are tucked in the side pockets.  The case in front of it holds my Spellbinder dies and others waffle dies that I have.

My guillotine cutter that my husband found for me I love it.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 207

Well Hello everyone that is reading my blog. Thank you for coming and taking a peek at what's on my workdesk Wednesday. This is number 207 meaning this has been going on for 207 Wednesdays. I have not been participating that long. It is amazing and I just love it. Well there next week will be the 4th anniversary for this adventure. And we will be exchanging ATC if you want to the details are posted on the Stamping-Ground Blog. You can also check that blog out to visit others sites and see what they have been up to.

I went to a crop last Saturday and Gypsy Corner in St. Cloud, Fl (she is on Facebook check her out) and I started working on my Vintage Camper that I showed last week.  As you can see I am using the metal looking tape that you use to cover the dryer hose. It has a liner on it like score tape and redliner tape.  So I had to make sure that I covered it and then I use my wood brayer to adhere it better.
I finished the actual Vintage Camper at the crop but I had to finish the bottom part that holds the mini at home.

The door I use a sizzix folder - Gridlock

This is the opposite side of the door and those dots were once blue & gold and I used silver metallic alcohol ink to color them. My embellishments are from Tim Holtz line.

Thanks for visiting and Have Bless day. Lets us continue to pray for the people in Oklahoma.

It is so fun to go around the world in a day or 2 and see what everyone is doing or has done in the crafting world. I would like to get to all the blogs but my it would take more 2 days or more to view and leave comments. I love to read what my fellow crafters write to me and I love to leave one as well. So if you are interested in taking the trip visit Stamping-Ground here.

These weeks seem to just fly by. I guess when you are having fun that's what happen. I have been busy in my Studio organizing my embellishments. I now have seven drawers full of embellishments, who knew. Well anyway here is a pic of what I have been doing.
These are just some of the embellishments from my stash.

I named my Silhouette and made him look beau-ti-ful. Oops I just thought a man in pink. Well he's all man and very confident and I like him in pink. lol
A card I cut with Budd for my Daughter
This is a pattern I got from ScrappyCamperSisters I'm going to a crop on Saturday and this is what I will be working on  it is so cute. This is a camper with a mini album in side. I will be using some of the things in my stash and I shouldn't have to buy any thing. I saw shouldn't have to. We have and RV but I think this is so cute. Inside is a mini album. I haven't put that together yet hopefully next week I'll have pic of that.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my blog. Leave a comment if you wish.

WOYWW #205

Yesterday was my Stamp Addicts meeting. Everyone was there and had great cards to share and great ideas. The host showed us a marvelous technique using buttons, embossing powder, embossing ink, and a heat gun, oh and stamps.

Lots of stuff here.

These are the buttons that I embellished.  I came home from the meeting and started to embellish more. I wanted to try using the Verdigris by Antiquities. That is the greensish part on the buttons. We used sever different stamps on the buttons to give it some texture.

This is an old key I had started embellishing after watching a yt don't remember now who it was.

Thanks to the Stamp Addicts May host for showing this technique.
