Dies & Adhesive Comments, WOYWW 372

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Hello fellow deskers!  We are all back to Julia's this week.  So wonderful that she is able to host us again.  And we thank Jan for her  wonderful coverage while Julia was not able to host us.
Down to business!  Here are a shot  of my desk this morning.  Nothing going on, just left overs from what I did yesterday.  I am in the middle of a little housekeeping, so not quite ready to craft yet this morning.  I will show you a couple of projects I did this week.  I really had a productive week, even finished a few scrap lay outs.  I have gone back to scrapping some 70s photos!  When I realized they were 40 years old, I couldn't believe it!

This is leftovers of making a tea party card, and a peek at the card too. I used designer paper for this card.  I even cut out some of the dresses and mounted them on the card for 3-D effect.  I added a sentiment, gold cord and a little star charm.

 Made these cards using some new Memory Box dies.  Intricate but running them through the Big Shot with dryer sheets,card stock, wax paper and then the die,  they came out easy.  Also I used a new spray adhesive on the intricate dies and that was easier, except for getting it all over me and my craft sheet.  I have to figure out a different way to do that, maybe over newspaper.

Thank you for stopping by and for your encouraging comments!  I am off to visit you! Have a great Wednesday.

Z For Zebra & WOYWW 371

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

Hello, everyone!  WOYWW Greetings to all the deskers!  Oh, I just read the great news over at Lunch Lady Jan's!  Julia will be in charge again  and we will be back at her place next week!  That is good news, because it means she must be feeling good again.

Well, I crafted at church today and we ladies finished 40 cards in an hour and a half.  ( and we were few)  So, I came home all ready to craft.  I put supper in the crock pot and came down to my craft room and even finished a card! Below is a photo of my desk since that is what we are supposed to be showing.  Also, below is a photo of my card I made this afternoon.  One thing I learned is my hands are not as flexible as they used to be!  It took me an hour to get those 6 beads on that floss!    But I like them on there.

Oops!  My cup of tea even got into the photo!

This card was for our Alpha Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers.  It was a double challenge.  We are on Z but we were also to take our zip code, add it up and then use the corresponding letter with what the total was.  My letter ended up being R.  So I used red card stock and red beads.

Thanks for stopping by!  Thank you everyone who commented last week! You made my week!
Have a great week!

Card Kit Making & WOYWW 370

Hebrews 11:1  "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."

 I am here this week, but forgot to post earlier, then from ten to one, I had ladies in my craft room.  We were making up card kits for our Encouragement Ministry card making event next Wednesday.  So, probably be late next week, too.  We die cut sayings and Bible verses for the insides of cards.  We had the Cuttlebug and Big Shot going.  One to die cut and the other to emboss.  Someone stamped the Praying for You and the Welcomes, and then someone punched them out.  Everyone had a job.  then we die cut and punched layers for under the sentiments.  We package everything in baggies, and next week, the ladies will create, by putting together in any way they want and  adding embellishments, and butterflies and such. Here is what my space looked like after they left!
You can see how I keep my dies.  I keep them on magnets in plastic pages in those black notebooks.

Again we are linking over at Lunch Lady Jan's Fabric Frenzy, while Julia gets better.  And she does seem to be getting better, and even posted this week!  Yay!  Go on over and check out the rest of the deskers!  I am headed over now.  I really like seeing what crafters all over the world are doing. Thanks for stopping by and for letting me know you were here!  I really appreciate it.
