WOYWW May 30/12 Anniversary Edition

Happy Anniversary WOYWW!  Today is the 3rd Anniversary of the blog hop phenomenon where crafty and arty bloggers show all the world their workspaces every Wednesday!  A big thank you to Julia at The Stamping Ground who is the queen and organizer of this super fun event each and every week!  
There is nothing much happening on my desk today but I did receive this fabulous scrapbook binder today!  I seem to have acquired an obsession with all things camera lately (me and the rest of the crafting world, ha ha).  Now I just have to fill it up!
Happy WOYWW to everyone!!
For this anniversary of WOYWW, the participants are exchanging ATC's, so if you are the person that I am to send one to, please feel free to email me through my button on my sidebar with all your details, otherwise I will contact you later tonight as I will be at work in the day.

Scrapbooking Workshop!

 I have signed up for an online workshop for scrapbooking!  The class starts June 1st and this week the instructor asked for us to make a "kit" from our own stash in preparation for the class.  We should be able to make 4 layouts from this kit, so we shall see if I put my kit together well, ha ha!  I
 have not scrapbooked before but I have watched a lot of this instructor's videos on YouTube and I love her style so I have decided to give it a go!  If you want to check it out go to her ColoredSprinkles website.  The workshop will last for a month and is a really reasonable
And I am pretty much finished my dog mini-album!  I just want to go thru it again and see if anything needs to be added. Then I will photograph it and post it here!

Camera Card and Belated Bday Card

 Here is the camera card I was working on in my last WOYWW post.  It is pretty small as I decided to make the camera die- cut shape the actual card.  I just diecut out the camera on some folded white card stock to make the card and then adhered the black camera die cut to that.  And I used a flair button in place of the smallest lens ... so cute!
And this card I made for someone's birthday that I forgot, well actually I didn't know it was his birthday until after the fact.  He got a laugh from it which is what I hoped for!

WOYWW May 16/12

It is Wednesday (just barely) and that means it is time for What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday!  You too can play along or just have a snoop around other crafter's and artist's desks at the Stamping Ground.
On my desk today I am working on a going away card for someone who loves cameras and taking pictures, so I am using an MFT die cut camera to make this card.  It does come with the dies to make the lenses but because I wanted to stamp a circle sentiment from My Creative Time, I had to get out my circle Nestabilities  to make a slightly smaller lens that wouldn't cover up the sentiment.  Trying to keep this post short and sweet because I know there are many other desks to visit! 
Happy WOYWW to everyone!!

Hugs and Kisses

This is a card I made a few days ago for a friend.  The stamp is from CC Designs and is called Birgitta Blowing Hearts and the sentiment is from AmyR's collection called Heart-y Sayings.

I have been working on my dog mini-album a little bit here and there but it is nowhere near finished yet.  I will post it when I finish it but that will probably be awhile yet :)

Hugs and Kisses!

Mother's Day and Just Because

 Here is a Mother's Day card I made for a friend.  The stamp is a Kiki LaRue image by CC Designs and the sentiment is my own.  (And after seeing this picture I realized I forgot to add Stickles to the flowers and her shoes, so I went back and added some sparkle!)

And I also made a "just because" card that could be given for any reason or perhaps a male birthday card.  The stamp is a Stamper's Anonymous stamp called "Dragonfly Legend."  I grunged it up to make it appear old. 
Once again, two very different styles!  And I love making both!
