WOYWW today so thought I'd share a couple of photos of my temporary crafting corner and what's on my desk waiting to be finished. My stash is all over the place as the bookcase I have for storage while the study is being renovated is the wrong size for just about everything. My big paper boxes are in the cupboard next door and the drawers with other stuff in are in the guestroom. Still, I'm lucky that we do still have a spare room that the crafting, and other office paraphernalia into while the builders are here - the work is due to start next Monday so we'll be spending the coming w/e moving the pc stuff - that will be fun!
Oh no, I got that wrong....That Won't be fun! haha
We're hoping that everything will be ready for moving back in about a month.
Here's a closer look at what I'm busy with atm:
A card for my cousin's little boy - it's been in that state for the last 3 weeks but now I really do need to finish it. Also in this photo you cans ee a couple of cards I've been making for the next Funky Hand show on Create and Craft. It's all about the new "real" stamps that were released recently and you know by now how much I love stamping......aaaggghh! Actually, it's not the stamping so much as the colouring I can't cope with.
Next, something I finished by the skin of my teeth, Hubby's birthday card!
I was a bit stuck for what to do this year, but then remembered the "Builder" I made for Crafty Templates a couple of years back and thought that I might be able to tweak it to make a Veg Plot card He's been buy sowing seeds in the indoor propagator lately so I thought this might amuse.
I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, though I think I oversized the beans a bit! I just didn't have time to cut them again.
Figure from Crafty Templates set (March 2009).
All other items are cut on the Craft Robo
I made the following cutting templates: seed tray/pots/ seedlings (all on one template), plants, carrots, beans, courgettes, seed packet are all separate templates - email if you would like a copy of these.
Lots of Bazzill card and lots of inking!
He loved it - then said "but, I don't wear those boots for gardening!"
What can you do? hehehe
