Anyway, Wednesday means it's WOYWW time, this is the best time of the week if you're nosey like us, as it's our regular snoop at desks across the world, courtesy of Julia at Stamping Ground. Check out her fab blog, but be warned, once you hop, you can't stop!
So, what's on our workspace this week then? It's Horace hosting the bears' desk this week, I asked Podgy to take a picture of me mid card make. I have a glue stick, a cutter, a half made card, ink pads, scissors, scraps of patterned paper..... All the usual pawraphenalia involved in a card making session. If you're anything like me, you'll have a thousand ideas going round your furry brain of what you want to make, and far too many embellishments to fit on 20 cards, never mind a small pawful!
Do you subscribe to any monthly craft kits? Although it's not a subscription kit, we've bought the Papermaze monthly kit since they started selling them last year. So far we've been rather bad at using them, thinking we'll save them for 'something special' but at last we've managed to make some scrapbook lay outs from one of the kits, and, determined not to end up with a bag of odds and ends, I thought I'd use the scraps to make some cards.
Here I am, in all my cuteness, with some of my paw made cards.
I utilised a balloon punch for this one, we bought this last year thinking it would become a much used tool, but I think this may be the first time it's actually been used!
Wilbear bought us some lovely Wellington bear embellishments for one of our Christmas presents, so I made some card toppers with them.
The card below is for our dear cub, who recently moved to a new town with her husband, as he had secured a new job there. Despite her having no job to go to, she had secured herself two interviews before she had actually moved, and was offered the first job she went for, not bad eh?
In the card below I utilised the negative of a leaf die, to show that all scraps can be used in some way.
We've decided that from now on, whenever we create a scrapbook page, we will endeavour to make a card with the leftover patterned papers.
After all that crafting I feel a deserved break is needed, so I shall go desk hopping across blogland. See you next week. Xxx
With love from the bears.
