Once again I used some of the bespoke stamps on the front of a card as well as on the back to personalise it. This time I worked in my favourite rainbow coloured Oxides. I was really proud when this sample was chosen to be demonstrated by Paul Church when the stamps were launched on The Craft store.

I played with a second set of Barbara's Winter Linocut stamp sets and mixed them with some of the new frame dies from the Clarity Birthday weeekend.

The great thing about these Nested Square Doodle Frame-Its Frames from Claritystamp is that there are always a few left over for other projects. Here I used some of the smaller black and white frames left over from previous projects to create an anniversary card.

The Doodle Frame-Its Frames work brilliantly with designer paper to create an impressive surround for a sentiment.

Welcome to the first WOYWW of the 2021-22 school year. Please pop over to Stamping Ground where Julia will explain more about this weekly sharing of the desks.I azm still keeping up with the daily drawings but my diary is now more prominent as I plan daily tasks for work and crafting.
Thanks for all gthe great comments about the inside of the shed and the new floor. I passed them on to 'the boys'. I am in Stoke on Trent so if any of you are ever coming up this way please get intouch and you are welcome to join me for an afternoon in the shed.
Off to school for my first proper day on timetable teaching followed by a tutor session for #2 son who is learning German. I'll be round to visit when I can. Stay safe and happy WOYWW.

These lovely new bespoke name stamps from Claritystamp aren't just for labelling your handmade cards on the back. They can be used on the front of cards as well.

I love the new winter linocut stamps designed by Barbara Gray. Here I combined one of the sets with a stencil that I thought matched up well.
Saturday, 4 September 2021
This time I used the frames and one of the coordinating aperture dies to create a threaded frame using baker's twine.

Despite a few days away this month, I have continued with my journey of drawing every day in 2021. Here is a round up of the last couple of weeks in August.
Wednesday, 1 September 2021
Well it took me 48 hours, but the inside of the shed is fully back in place and organised how I like it.I thought I'd share an expanded view from my desk today so you can see the view to the door. I have also finally hung up the lovely wind chimes that #1 son and his then girlfriend gave to me for my birthday two years ago.
Don't forget to visit Julia at Stamping Ground to catch up with lots more desks and find out more about WOYWW. I'll be round to visit later today and after the INSET day in school tomorrow. September already!! Stay safe and happy WOYWW.

I mixed monochrome and rainbow colours to create this card using the splodge stamp from the Beetle stamp set designed by Cherry Green for Claritystamp.
Monday, 30 August 2021
I used the new Numbers and Happy Birthday stamps with the corresponding die cuts to create this easel card.

For this second card using the new stamps from Cherry Green and Clarity I stayed with a monochrome look but used the smaller version of the stamps.
Friday, 27 August 2021
I went for a clean and simple look using one of my favourite colour combinations using one of the new bug themed stamp sets, designed by Cherry Green for Claritystamp.
Thursday, 26 August 2021
The current offer of the week at Claritystamp (until midnight on Sunday) is the fabulous shoe stamps designed by Cherry Green. I thought I'd bring all my cards using three of the five sets of stamps into one place.

People of a nervous disposition may want to look away after the desk picture. After a mammoth shifting of stuff, my shed got a new floor for my birthday and the pictures aren't all pretty.At first glance, it may seem that nothing has changed in the shed, however in the last fortnight it has been completely emptied, the floor removed and completely replaced.
I managed to find red carpet with glittery sparkles so if there is ever a glitter spill it won't show up too much. By 6pm the floor was complete and the skirting boards back in place.
I spent Monday (with hubby helping with the furniture) replacing much of the stash into the shed. I wanted to be able to work in there again as quickly as possible.
Stamping Ground, where Julia will explain everyhting WOYWW related. Happy WOYWW everyone.
