Good morning all you WOYWWers!
Not a great deal of interest to show this morning... a few stamps which I didn't have time to clean before going to my choir last night, my box of mini punches which I said I would show at some stage... and the detritus of yesterday's efforts. You may just be able to see my prize from the Penny Black Challenge Blog, it's a big old stamp with some mice on a keyboard... fabulous!
The funny shaped thing to the left of the shot is my attempt at making a pop-up ball like the Sizzix one. I think that I probably won't pursue the matter much further as it involves loads of cutting out. I can see why a die was made for the purpose. Actually I haven't got the proportions quite right, (it's not quite tall enough) but that could be easily rectified on the computer.
On the notice board is a paper with my workings out to make a tri-shutter card from a sheet of A4 card. The tutorials on the web are nearly all in metric measures, which don't tie in with the sizes of card we buy here. SO I fiddled around until I found something which worked and looked proportionally OK.
The card I made with this set of dimensions can be seen here.
Do you remember my set of drawers which went all wonky? Well this is the replacement. There is one fewer drawer, but each one holds more, so everything is accommodated. I must say that with all the bits and bobs on my desk there's not actually a lot of room to work, but I guess that if I had a larger area, it would be so full of stuff that I'd probably only have the same amount of space as I have now. It's the nature of the beast!
Hop over to Julia's and join in the fun! (Link on my sidebar).
