Welcome to our weekly Wednesday Blog Hop - WOYWW. Here's the link to the one responsible, the lovely Julia at Stamping Ground - pop on over and join in, see what it's all about and join in yourself.
Well there I was last week, once again bemoaning my internet woes, but managing to visit everyone who linked up before I went off to lunch feeling a little proud of myself for once. Came back, internet was down, eventually checked via my phone, we had an official outage, not just flakiness and that was that, no more internet till Thursday evening!! So apols to those on the end of the list for not getting there!!
Anyhoo, here's my desk this morning, pretty devoid of crafting as I tidied up after my crafty friend came to visit yesterday.
Goodness it looks like the home of some crazy hoarder person!! (Busted).
I have taken the clear desk as an opportunity to search for something in my artbins. I keep my dies in these on magnetic sheets - I have 8 of these and could do with a couple more as they are all stuffed, but I don't have anywhere to put any more.
Needless to say I haven't found it.
We made these cards (well she stuck flowers I had previously stamped and cut out onto a bg I had previously made).
They turned out pretty well.
Earlier this week I decided that we would make this Diamond Faceted side easel card at my next craft club - I will leave it to them to decide how to finish it off!!
I had seen a utube by Sam Calcott and also watched one she referenced by Iced Images. The cards are quite easy, but you need to come up with a way to cover the acetate where it is attached. I didn't like the suggestions for making two triangles into a single piece (can't think how else to describe that) as there are a few measurements that I knew I would not have the patience to explain so I experimented with alternatives.
My try outs included a punched square, a heart, and a frame. So I have cut the pieces for a frame but if they would rather do the other ways that will be fine. Which solution do you prefer?
Square with tiny snowflakes
