Red, White and Blue Jubilee Card

As the Platinum Jubilee celebrations are coming up soon I made a quick, clean and simple card in red, white and blue using some of the new border dies from Clarity.

WOYWW 677: Post Anniversary

 What a great anniversary virtual get together was had for the 13th year of WOYWW.  It was so good to see everyone celebrating together yet separately.  It is never to late to start joining in, so hop over to Stamping Ground and Julia will explain how to get started.

My desk today shows an ATC from Catriona - so kind as I am not swapping this year.  Thanks again so much.

As you can see, I have finished with my floral stickers for the moment for my #dailychallenge2022.  I have been rummaging through boxes to find other themes that I can use instead.  Half term next week and I will be trying to get through all the report comments I need to write so I can enjoy a day off on the INSET day the folllowing Monday.  I have planned so many a day and have given myself the 4th June off entirely. Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.

Mel's Magic Moments: Ideas and Inspiration

I thought I would bring togather all the ideas and inspiration using the Mel's Magic Moments stamp collection from Claritystamp. There are links to the step by step projects under each image.

They are great for colouring (see HERE).

WOYWW 676: Happy 13th Anniversay

Welcome and Congratulations to Julia and Jan on the 13th anniversary of the weekly desk sharing that is WOYWW.  Thirteen years of friendship, sharing and a weekly coming together of like-minded crafters.  Everyone is made very welcome.

My desk is actually not very celebratory at all.  I have had no time to make ATCs for the swap this year but very much look forward to seeing what other deskers share over the coming weeks on the theme of connection.  I was looking through some of the sticker sheets to decide on the next pages in my #dailychallenge2022 journal.  The last 7 pages have been using up plenty of them as you can see.

I look forward to visiting friends old and new and their desks over the next couple of days.  Happy WOYWW 13th anniversary everyone!

Latest Daily Journal Round Up

 The days seem to roll round ever more quickly and the third journal of this year is growing nicely.  I am into a routine cutting background papers to size and finding suitable toppers and stickers from my ancient stash.  Here are the pages for May so far.  Each one uses word stickers from one of the four booklets available from Claritystamp.

I love the combination of printed papers and embossed stickers.

Still sticking to coordinated opposite pages and florals.

A little watercolour pencil used to ground the images.

Sometimes clusters of stickers work too.

More clusters and still using up my K&Co stickers.

Still working my way through my flower stickers.
These seemed fitting phrases for the end of SATs week for Y6.
Back to using up K&Co. stickers.
This one had to be trimmed as it was too long for the page.

WOYWW 675: One Week to the Big Day

 The days seem to be speeding by and it is now only one week to the 13th anniversary of WOYWW.  It's never too late to join in and indeed, I have been a regular for fewer than 7 of these years.  Thanks Julia for creating such a fabulous community.

Rather déjà vu on my desk today.  The only way I can guarentee completing my daily journal page on a work day is to prep it the night before.  I never add the words or glue it into the book until the actual day though.

I still have boxes of stickers and papers and could probably continue this next year too.

Thanks for all your well wishes for my hospital appointment last week.  It went well and I have now had the all clear on a number of fronts.  Having finally been to get my eyes tested post pandemic (the previous one was October 2019), I have been told that the cataract in my left eye has developed quite a bit so I will have to have a yearly test from now on.  Collecting new glasses on Saturday though.  

I am really looking forward to a potential WOYWW crop and am busy amassing tags swap then as I don't have the time at present to make extra ATCs.  Stay safe and Happy WOYWW.
