It's that time of the week again, when we have a wee look at everybody's workdesks - if you aren't sure what its all about, check Julia's blog.  My desk is a bit untidy again this week - I had to make quite a few cards for a couple of orders recently and I always find you pull out lots of stuff to make all the different types of cards - so there is a collection of dirty stamps piling up at the right hand side and a few dies gathering up -  I bought them recently and so just had to try them out - I used one of the Cheery Lynn butterfly dies and one of the Shapeabilities tags dies to make the wedding card below - its a bit overloaded with die cuts but you have to try out everything at once!  I found it hard to get the label out of the die, so I have stuck some of the Quickutz ejection foam on, and it seems to be working better now.
The paper came free with the 'Simply Homemade' magazine and I had been wondering what to do with it when I got a text from my Sis wanting me to make 3 thank you cards with a Jubilee theme - just perfect! - so that's what I'll be making next!

The circular plastic thing is part of my circle cutter set I bought at the very first craft fair in the Kings Hall, Belfast, many years ago now - from a company called Creative Memories - they mostly did scrapbooking, but I bought these sets in circles and ovals and have been using them to make cards ever since.


  1. That wedding card is lovely, very elegant. Die cuts are good, used properly they can make for some beautiful and quick work.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Happy WOYWW

  2. Love the wedding card - know what you mean about the card being difficult to get out of some dies,I have used QK ejection foam too. Found I had to use it only on the parts with holes else my cutting plates made criss-cross marks on the card though. BJ#8

  4. Beautiful wedding card Bernice...Those dies are so hard to get out at times.. it drives me crazy... But I must say that Butterfly is simply Gorgeous.. Hugs May x x x#20

  5. I remember the Creative Memories shape cutting things. I was sorely tempted but never got them. Those are some great dies you bought. I love the British themed papers. Have fun with those!

  6. Ah that Butterfly is perfect on the card, and a beautiful die to boot. Really pretty work Bernice.

  8. Love that embossed paper you have used on the card. It's gorgeous!
    Thanks for visiting me too! Have a good week!

  9. Your card is really beautiful and not overloaded with dies, I think it is perfect. As for some help getting the dies out use some bluetack, you know the stuff you use on walls to hang pictures. I keep a ball of it on my big shot.

    Have a great crafting week
