WOYWW 92


Hello WOYWW'ers! Hope you all well & enjoying (or rather in my case, enjoyed) the weather! Its cold & overcast here today! As you can see my desk is pepper'd with stuff this week! Had quite a productive one & got half a dozen cards made in one sitting. All A6 & and made with Papermainias new "Pampered Pets Collection" I saw them in The Range & just couldn't resist! They are so cute! My other stash are freebies this week on the next pic are my subscriptions gifts from, Craft Stamper Magazine 3 Stamps & Pad from Crafty Individuals. And the Pro Markers are a subscription gift from Simply Cards & Paper-craft Magazine (Nov 10 issue) not bad eh! I mixed the pet set with some new Papers I found in Dunelm Mill. "Love Letters" paper pad is by (to me) a new range by a company called First Edition Papers. The quality is really good & you get a nice selection in the pad too, Glitter'd, Plain & double sided papers. This set is all pinks & pale & dark greens, very nice. Theres even 3 sheets (...lol...) yes three sheets! :) Of little tags & 3 sheets...lol...(sorry) of Alphas too & they are glittered too! Pretty good value at £6.99 for 8x8 I think! I also used some Kay & Co Tags from the Madeline Collection. These are my finished results!

Erm this next pic shows something I was waiting to come in over here in the uk !!! Yes the new Tim Holtz "Vagabond" die cutting machine! Yes it came in a very nice box, it's very heavy, and its made by Sizzix. You get the multi-use platform with it and it has an extra shim clipped to it & a pair of smaller sized cutting plates. I tried it & it was...erm....ok...but to be honest with you, it does not do much more more than my Cuttlebug does already! Ok you can cut thicker stuff with it like Grungeboard & leather (although I have not tried it) But Alas for all its good looks and hype, I have returned it! Its not for me, it will be for some of you, but not me. I am now waiting for the New Spellbinders "Grand Callibure" instead :) being as thats the new A4 size machine I think I will get more use from it than the Vagabond. Plus I cant wait to use the Big Nesties with it too. I saw it on Create & Craft on easy pay & though right thats the one! So hopefully it will be in one of my posts soon...... Sorry Tim!

Right O! I bid you all Audi & will catch up with your desks! Keep well & warm!

Lucky you and the new cutting machine! Your cards are fabulous. I love the bright and springlike colors on your desk.

Love all your beautiful cards. I looked at the Vagabond but I already have a Big Shot and like you thought that IF I bought another machine it would be the Grand Calibur instead. Thanks for sharing! Vickie #69

Great cards. Have fun with your new Vagabond.
Playing catch-up on WOYWW visits.

Happy WOYWW mrs! Don't blame you about the Vagabond - I think it's just another way to get the Holtzians to pay more money to the man. Don't get me wrong, he does fabby stuff, but I don't particularly want something that looks like a tatty suitcase sat on the floor taking up room. (She says, currently saving up for a Craft Robo.....). I've got my Big Shot, it does what I want for now, and the Robo will do the rest (especially for Mr B who is a teacher and needs some help cutting stuff out regularly!)

Cute cards! and 6 in one sitting?! I would have been there are day and half the night to get 6 cards done! You do have some terrific goodies showing here. I am thinking about the ProMarkers, but I am saving my pennies right now and they will have to wait. Have fun with your new things!
