What's On Your Workdesk 316 Wednesday? and Scrapping

      Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him.


Good morning, fellow deskers!  I might get this posted earlier for a change.  So fun to visit you and I enjoy when you stop in to see my space and comment.  I have been trying to scrap a two page LO from my Brittish Isles trip, for two days now!  And today I might get it done! Hopefully it won't take me this long to do the whole album!   This is my  desk as it  has looked for the last two days.

 Another project I have been working on is trying to organize all my 12x12 papers.  On Pinterest I had pinned a video about how to organize your papers by putting together colored cardstock and prints that would match.  Whenever you would want to do a page you woud have the papers already together and not have to hunt.  Well, I think she had only about 50 papers she was working with, whereas I  have hundreds.  So one picture shows you my small start in this momunental endeavor.  Tell me, if you are a scrapbooker, have you attempted this process?  What do you think about doing it this way?


I seem to be stuck on getting this layout done.


I put 4-6 papers of like colors and patterns together in 12x12 page protectors.  A very small start to my huge stash!





















Thank you for stopping by!  If this WOYWW is new to you check out Julia's Stamping Ground  for all the details and to see some more desks.  It is really fun to hop around to all the desks and see what crafters are doing all over the worldl  Have a great week!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 315 & VSN Happy!

 Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him.

Wednesday is almost gone!  I missed last week and almost missed this week's!  I decided to go ahead and post anyway!  I am just showing you what I did this past week-end.  I participated in Splitcoast Stampers' Virtual Stamp Night, only it lasts a whole week.  We were to make each card in a hour or shorter,  The theme was Happy.  We had to make a shaker card, a card with a bee, a card using a stencil ,and one with a 50s theme,  just to name a few of the challenges. You can still play: VSN


These are the ten Happy cards I made for the VSN Challengtes. 

I embossed this one with Pool Party embossing powder and VersaMark ink.  I used a sentiment from a Inkadinkado clear stamp set, and cakes from SU! Quick & Easy.  The paper is TPC Studio (So Delish) and Pool Party by SU!  I used Spellbinders Tag dies, and square punch for the cakes. The Bakers Twine is  SU! Coastal Cabana.



So good of you to stop by.  If you want to see some more desks, just check over at Stamping Ground.  Have a great rest of the weeik!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 313

 Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him.
                                                

Good afternoon!  There is not much going on craftwise here today.  But since we are showing our workdesks, here is a photo of all my space.  I need to clean off some of the surfaces before I begin to craft.  I did make a baby card yesterday and 13 scrap pages in May.  I will show you some of those pages below my space.  







If you want to visit some more desks drop by Julia's Stamping Ground.  You will learn all about this world wide Blog hop! Thanks for your visit and comments.  I am off to see you, now. Have a great Wednesday!

WOYWW Happy 6th Year Anniversary!

 Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him.
                                                



  Happy 6th Anniversary What's On Your Workdesk!  I haven't taken part for all that time, but already over two years! Hop over to Julia's Stamping Ground and congratulate her!  She has provided us with this fabulous Blog Hop where we have met a lot of friends from all over the world.  We get to look at each other's desks and enable each other in our crafts.
   So here is my desk this morning.  I have been scrapping a lot in the month of May.  Virtual Scrapbook Night  on Splitcoast Stampers has been celebrating the whole month of May as National Scrapbook Month with 3or 4  challenges every week-end!  I have completed about 11 pages or so I think. Anyway, working on another one below.  I have my list of chalenges on my desk to mark off as I do them.  Also, this week I completed my first Pop-Up Book Card!  I am not good at scoring and cutting special cards, but did this one for about 4 different challenges on Splitcoast Stamper.  I will send this one to one our Teapotters, because we are doing something called Tickle a Teapotter!


My first Pop-Up Book Card


Thanks for stopping by and for your encouraging comments.  Oh, and Happy Anniversary!

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 311 & Disorganization

Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him.

Good morning!  Can you believe it is Wednesday again? I have been busy scrapbooking and crafting cards since we got home from our trip last week.  A Splitcoast Stamper friend asked if I was organized because I got a lot of crafting done in April.  NO!  This is my area!  It certainly is not organized. And keep in mind when I came back from our cruise everything was neat as a pin! You can see by the one photo that now, if I want to cut something with my paper cutter, I will have to move the DSP off of it.  And the box on the floor is my last SU! order from a couple of months ago.  I use a stamp out of it and put it back in the box.  Just haven't put them in their proper places yet.  This way I know where my newest stuff is! :) IN THE BOX! LOL

Well, that is it today.  Off to Bible Study.  I will visit you when I come home.  Thank you for stopping by and have a great WOYWW!  Check out the other WOYWW Deskers at Julia's Stamping Ground.


Scrapbook LO in progress.

Paper cutter?  Where?

SU! order!

Just another area for a catch all!

We were on this ship for our 2 week cruise to Brittish Isles.

What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 310

   Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him.



 Just a quick mention of a few occasions I missed.  First, I have missed every year the anniversary of this Blog.  I even posted on April 15th and didn't realize it was my 2nd anniversary!
So, happy 2 years of Blogging to me.
    Another occasion I wanted to commemorate was my late Mother's birthday on April 27th.  I was on a cruise at the time, and didn't post that week.  But I wanted to remember my lovely Mom.  I miss her so much.  She was a wonderful Godly lady, and left a wonderful legacy of her faith for me, our children and grandchildren.
    Also, just a quick note of why I haven't been around. We went on a wonderful two week Brittish Isles Cruise, and before that both my husband and I were sick with terrible colds.
    Ok, down to business.  We are here to show our desks per  Julia's Stamping Ground.   Below is mine.  I am in the process of going thru photos for our Virtual Scrapbooking Night Challenges this month on Splitcoast Stamper.  And that isn't even any of my 450 photos I took on our cruise.  Don't worry I didn't print them all off, just 75 of them! LOL  Also you see I have been playing with my new SU! butterfly die.  Also, on my desk is some cards I made at a SU! workshop yesterday.
   
Mom & I before she was sick

My desk this afternoon
Thank you for stopping by and for your comments.  I am on my way to see the rest of the WOYWW deskers. Have a great week!

WOYWW 306 & Watercoloring Embossing

 Col. 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God  and the Father, by him.

What is on your Workdesk this Wednesday?  I will come around and see.  Here is what is on mine.  I haven't cleaned it since I did my last card. Check out Julia's Stamping Ground and you can see a lot of desks!



I stamped the image on watercolor paper with Versa Mark White and embossed with Winter white Embossing Powder. I watercolored with the Old Olive and Melon Mabo  inks in the lids of the pads, and wet my brush with water.  I used an old retired SU! stamp:  Romanitc Rose.  The sentiment is Stampendous.  The cardstock is Melon Mambo & Pixie Pink.  My problem was that I couldn't see where to paint. LOL


I stamped  the Dictionary Background Stamp  onto Irresistibly Yours Specialty DP from SU! with Soft Suede; then rubbed it real hard with a tissue, and the embossed flowers appeared! :) After I stamped the flowers in Black Momento and colored with Calypso Coral and Old Olive,  I fusszy cut the image and mounted it  on some more of the special DP on which I had stamped leaves from Secret Garden in Old Olive.  (and rubbed)  I mounted on Spellbinders Label 10 die cut. I used Calypso Coral for the panel under the DP, and then mounted on a Soft Suede base.  The butterfly was punched with Martha Stewart punch, ant put on the card with pearls.  I also tied the paper around the flowers with bakers twine.


Thank you for stopping by!  I appreciate any comments.  I am on my way to visit you!
Happy What's on Your Workdesk? Wednesday!
