WOYWW # 402 & Un-mounting stamps

Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage:  be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

Good Morning Deskers!  I just skipped over # 401!  How does that happen?  I know I have asked that question, before. I am wondering, why do I have a Blog?  I don't remember, but I think I began one so that I could take part in challenges that required a Blog.  So much for that! LOL  I am not too committed to it.  But, I have met a lot of nice people all over the world taking part in Julia's What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday Blog Hop!  I guess that is what you call it.  Check in over at Julias Stamping Ground and check out all the other deskers if you never have.

Here is what is going on in my space today!  I am little by little un-mounting my wood mounted stamps and putting them in smaller cases.  I put the wood stamp in the micro-wave about 9 seconds and then the whole stamp peels off.  I then take off the label and put it on the stamp.  You don't have to do that step, but I like the picture on there of what the stamp is.  Or, I have taken a photo of the stamps while still on the wood, and printed off on paper and put it as a cover on the case.  These cases were purchased from SU!, and they have a sleeve for the paper with the photo.  Most of these stamps are SU! anyway. The thing is  I was supposed to be freeing up space by doing this.  But what am I doing?  I am still using those clam boxes to store things in, like die cuts or pre embossed panels, or even pre cut and folded card bases.   I keep thinking of more ways to use them, so I still have them!  LOL  And  those of you who are un-mounting  your wood mounted stamps, what are you doing with the wood blocks?   I have decided to just toss them.  I am hoarding way too much anyway! 
                                                     So, here is my desk. 

Hope you had a great Valentine's Day yesterday!  Thanks for stopping by!

What's On Your Desk? Wednesday # 400 Scrapping and Playing

Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage:  be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

Happy February!  I have been MIA since for a while!  I will sneak back in today.  Sorry, there is no photo of my desk, but here are a couple of projects I have worked on this month.  I took part in the Facebook online Creative Memories Virtual Crop a week ago and this is one of the LOs I did.  I am trying to do our photos from the 80s!  It is fun to remember those times as I scrap. Below that are some cards I made using stamps that had never been inked up.  The Hey Chick! one was a set I got for free , a Sale-A-Bration set from SU!  The Art Impressions ladies set is one I have had for a while and never inked up.  So scrapping and playing here, what are you doing.  I will be by later to see you! Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to stop over at Julia's Stamping Ground to check out all the other deskers!

Have a wonderful week!

New Beginnings & WOYWW #396

Joshua 1:9 "Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage:  be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed:  for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest."

I hope you all had nice holidays and are having a nice beginning to 2017!  Like with all new beginnings, it takes a little work. My photo of my desk for What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday is staged, I confess.  I just wanted to show you what I am doing.  I am trying to get organized for the new year, make a new beginning.   I have been making a notebook with tabs for all the challenges on SplitcoastStamper.   I have included my birthday lists of all groups I am member of in the back.  Hopefully, I will not miss making a card for an upcoming birthday! :)  Do you see those cute little jars with bakers twine in them.  Is that cool or what?  I scored them on clearance at a local stamp store last Friday.

I did reach my goal of 100 pages scrapped in 2016!  Now, I have set my 2017 goal as 100, also, since I know I can do it!  It isn't like I even need to print photos!  I have hundreds.  I am trying to scrap the 80s right now!  And when I get all caught up with that, I can begin my heritage albums, because I have all my Mom's photos, and her Dad's photos!  And that is just one part of the family's.  I have all branches of the family's photos from husband's and mine!  Everyone gives me their photos, because if they didn't give them to me, they would trash them!

Don't forget to check out Julia's Stamping Ground to find out all about WOYWW and to visit all the other deskers!  Maybe, you want to join us and show us your desk! :)

Happy New Year and WOYWW!  I hope you are having a nice new beginning!  Thank you for stopping by!

Happy New Year! & WOYWW 395

Luke 2;11 "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord"

I cannot believe we are about to celebrate a new year!  2017, no less!  Ok, I am going to show my age!  I can remember when 1984 was a book about the future! LOL  Or how about the movie, "Space Odyssey 2001"?  hmm!

                                Happy New Year!

Here is my desk and here are the calendar gift sets I made this year.  I have set a goal of 100 layouts this year.  I have about 7 more to do before the 31st to reach that goal! We received so many cards this year!  I had to show off the handmade cards!  If you want to see more about What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday, check out Julia's Stamping Ground. 

Trying to scrap some older photos.  

I did 15 sets of these.

So tickled with all the handmade cards we received!  Love everyone of them!  Thank you!
Thank you for stopping by!  Thank you for your comments!  Again, Happy New Year!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday #393 & Four Fold Card

Luke 2;11 "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord"

Late, I know, but I made it! Short this week!  Showing my desk that is cleaned from the last project waiting for the next one!  Check  out other Bloggers desks at Julia's Stampin Ground. Also, I thought I would share  a project called Four Fold Card.  I followed a You Tube video by Dawns Stamping  I normally do not do special folds because I must measure wrong and they never come out right.  But, I really liked this one, so I am showing it off.  So, that is it!  Have a great week!

Wow!  Enjoy this clean desk!  It won't stay that way too long!

This is the result of using a Scor-Pal and watching of Dawn's Video at least  five times!  It is a pretty cool card.  The top photo is the card open and the lower left is the front with the card closed.  Bottom right is just another view of the inside.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!

WOYWW #392 plus scrappy time

Luke 2;11 "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord"

Oh, my goodness, it is Wednesday again!  Just a quick post to show you my desk, because that is what we do on Whats On Your Workdesk? Wednesday.  To see more about this, go to Julia's Stamping Ground!
I have finished my Christmas cards and even have most of them mailed, so I have been scrapping!
First, I will show you a layout I did for my Scraplift Challenge on SplitcoastStampers.  I scraplifted another SlitcoastStamper Scrapper.  Then below are  photos of my workdesk.  One shows all the photos spread out as I work on some more layouts.  You see my big pink adhesive runner.  Can't scrap without that.  In the other desk photo, you see a Stampin' Up! Scrapbooking/Paper Saving Template.  I have forgotten about it and just recently started using it again.  Since you cut out the inside of your 12x12 paper for this, I got out my smaller paper cutter where you can do this.  Also beside that you see my order that I received from SU! this week.  That is it; that is what is going on here.  Now, I am headed out to tea with friends, and then Christmas shopping.  Ta Ta! :)

I am scrapping a 50th anniversary trip we took back to the same place we went on our honeymoon.
Thank you for stopping by and peeking at my workdesk.  Leave your number so I can come by and see you.  I love seeing what all of you are doing, too.  Happy WOYWW!

WOYWW #391

Ps. 107:1  O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

It is that time again! Time to show our craft desks. Stop over at Julia's Stamping Ground to see the rest of the deskers!  I have worked on several projects lately, so just decided to show you what my stamp off paper looks like that is on my work area. You can almost see proof of most of  the projects on there.  Short and sweet today!  Already been to the gym this morning, but haven't eaten breakfast yet!  Oh, alright, decided to show you cards I made, too.  But not showing my gift calendars I am working on until they are gifted!!! Have a wonderful day!


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope to stop by your space today, too, so leave your number.  Happy WOYWW!
