What's On Your Workspace Wednesday, once again....


Hi! Here's my contribution to Ms. Julia's WOYWW #116 and my 20th installment of WOTT (What's on Tap Tuesday). Sneaky ol' Wednesday has crept up again (not that my calendar knows) and my desk has, among other things, a pile of Smashbook paraphernalia that came straight from my carry-on luggage. Took it on vacation with me and was able to work on a couple of travel pages but mostly it has all the restaurant cards and various stubs accumulated last week. Pages to be, as it were.

I needed to make a belated birthday card so I used some new Stampin' Up products on my desk that came my way before I left. Namely, a new Designer Series paper pack called Big Top, a new stamp set called Four Frames and a new frame punch to match. I modified the concertina card that I linked you to last Tuesday by using an entire 12x12 sheet reduced to 9" tall and divided into 3 - 4 " sections. I cut a little piece off the first section so that the pretty reverse side of the paper could show through and popped up the elephant and lion head for a little dimension. The birthday greeting came from a recent SU playground stamp set called Recess.



Wanna link what's on your desk this week? (You can do it in two places, here and Julia's blog, if you like.) Do you have some newbie stuff on your desk? Use it to create something spur of the moment and join us!

I think I'll go add some glitter to those stars....

I love this! When I saw your first card, I was trying to think of how to make it with the 4" measurement. I also have this paper on it's way - delivery later today. :) Will have to try it!

Hey Cindy,

I'm pretty impressed with that big top card. It looks like a lot of fun. All the added details helped make it a super card anyone would love to receive (even if it is belated). And of course the bits and bobs scored while on vacation or while traveling are always welcome additions to any project. Have a great WOYWW.
