Autumn Cards and Desks

It's autumn!  The time of cool nights, a bit warmer days, colorful leaves, oh, and my desk!  Yes, it's Wednesday and the weekly workdesk review.  This is week 385, where does the time go! This fun global, well, Europe and the U.S., tour of desks is put together by Julia at the Stamping Ground.  All these years and she's still doing this!  I think this may be the longest lasting blog hop ever!

My desk is very clean as of yesterday afternoon.  I got the new Amaze die cut machine and had to clean my desk when I removed my Platinum to make room for it.  So much was hidden behind that large machine!

I had filled my trash can with a lot of scraps that just was too small and other misc. "stuff" that needed to be tossed.  So, are you ready for the explanation of my desk?  Far left are my 2 planners in front of my red Cricut (I really need to play with it some!) which is in front of a shelf of small stuff I use regularly. Next is a pile of stamps and dies.  The top set of dies are on a magnetic sheet to keep them together.  Then a package of paper on top of a set of directions for an class Oct. 28.  I've been busy making kits for 8 and I have 6 signed up right now.  Center front my blue mat with my Scor-Pal & mat and a pile of scrap paper to keep the mat clean.  Behind that is my stamp rag, spray water, Copic markers, box of acrylic blocks.  Ok, now to the right, my ATG adhesive runner and Amaze.  Behind that is my Fun Stamper Journey team mascot with friend in their little bag, my OTT light, 2 baskets of misc. paper & scraps, and my shelf of ink pads.

I've shown you one of the cards for my class, here's another:

All supplies are by FSJ.

In case you're wondering about the splatters, they're made by a special product that I just love but I cannot promote my company here.  If you have any questions, please email me through the "Contact Me" in the sidebar.

I tried to keep this relatively short so I'm now at the end of my post.  Please head over to the Stamping Ground and continue the tour of desks.  I'll be visiting while I work on making card kits for my class. Next week there is SO much going on that I'm starting to stress.

Hi Carol. That's a lovely card. Well done. I like the way the colours are behind the card front.
Take care. Go steady next week, it will all turn out fine. God bless.

Amaze machine haven't heard of it, is it A4 size or a smaller machine?
Am guessing smaller by look on your desk? Love the look of it and it goes well on your desk. It's probably not available here, thanks for sharing your creation, a lovely card well done.

Love your autumn leaves, Carol. It's a favourite time of year for me, with all the beautiful colours. Thank you for your visit and your kind words - yes, it's amazing what can be done on a tablet these days, and the iPad Pro was designed with artists in mind. Thank you for your good wishes for my health - yet another day of feeling really poorly and I've got so fed up with it that I've made an appointment to see the doctor.

Happy belated WOYWW,
