My Desk and the Green Monster

Ah.... Wednesday. And I've been busy! I'll be sharing my desk along with a lot of wonderful ladies as I join up with Julia of the Stamping Ground and give you a glimpse of my desk... as of late yesterday afternoon. 

Yesterday my Green Monster, my large CutterPillar Pro, was getting a workout as I started prepping for my class on April 23.  At this point in the photo I have already cut 10 of 2 of the 4 cards. 

There is a pile of card stock on my CutterPillar which will become the folded card bases. To the left of the cutter is the next card I'll be cutting and it is sitting on the supplies/directions sheet. Far right is my Platinum 6 and the Magic Mat which I love at this point in time. 

I have made a couple cards with a stash I got in last week from

Yesterday I shared my first card using this stash, the chickens. I made a slimline card. Friday I'll be sharing a paper pieced gnome using that large guy in the bottom center. Most of these stamps will be used in classes. I'll start working on my samples soon.

So now please head over to the Stamping Ground and check out more desks!

Those chicken stamps are a LOT of fun, I liked the cards you made yesterday! I bet you’ll use those stamps all the time for different projects. Well done on all the prepping for your class, you are very organised!

I'm late today as we've been sorting mum's second vaccination and hearing test so at least we've got that done. The stamp stash looks great, think you'll have fun with those. Have a very happy and creative woyww. Hugs, Angela x17x

OMG - my in-laws collect chickens (ever since their old band's Chicken in the Yard album, people keep giving them chicken stuff) but they would probably love a card with these images -sooooo cute! Me? I am a sucker for a cute gnome, so great post all round LOL!
Socially distanced knitting in the garden yesterday so TODAY is WOYWW for me!

Lovely stamps, particularly the chicken ones! What fun. That cutter does indeed look like a green monster. It looks very impressive.

What lovely new stash. Gnomes are really popular at the moment and can be used all year long! Have fun Angela #9

I’ve used and used my gnome stamps with paper piecing, the lovely bold outline of Francoise’s designs are just perfect for the technique. Love the chickens, aren’t they fun! Also love the plaid background on the card that’s waiting to be kitted. I use pre-cut and scored card blanks for workshops, so I have to hand it to you, there’s so much prep in a class anyway, cutting and scoring the card blanks as well is really going the extra!

Like the look of your new stash! The large gnome and chicken set really appeal to me.
Happy WOYWW!
