Blah Wednesday

Why was it blah? Well, I was in a sad mood today, so I decided that it would be a good time to clean up my craft area. Nothing cheers you up like a nice clean table, right? I have to say, it worked a bit! Here's my table top. I've got a lot of stuff jammed onto my old kitchen table. It ends up leaving about a 15 x 15 space to work with. I'm just happy I managed to fit most of my paper, all my clear stamp sets (and there are LOTS), all my inks and my cutters on there. It's so nice having all the basics within an arm's reach.

So once that was done, I had to get to using all that space. I loved yesterday's layout so much I decided to do it again! This one uses Flourishes' Open to Love. I think this is my first paper piecing attempt. If I have ever done this technique, it must have been so traumatic that I blocked it out, lol! So I stamped the vase, then again onto Basic Grey's Blush paper and cut out the vase and the hearts.


Stamps: Open to Love by Flourishes, LLC

Paper: Blush Collection by Basic Grey, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa

Ink: Palette Noir, Chocolate Chip

Accessories, etc.: velvet ribbon (I bought the ribbon at a local Scrapbook Store, I think it's May Arts), pop dots

  5. Your desk looks great and I absolutely adore that card! The color combination is one of my all time favorites and I love the way you put it all together.

  6. I love it! I can't tell you how many cards I have saved for inspiration that begin with "tashers". A LOT!!!! I obviously love your style as I save cards that I want mine to be like. "Tashers" will live on in history in my computer!!
