WOYWDW

Well firstly let me apologise for not being around lately. I have a million blogs to catch up on so I am sorry I haven't visited you. Things have been stressful here Nan has been very poorly and at one point we were told to prepare for the worst but fingers crossed the hospital are letting her home this week. So what do I do when I am stressed apart from eat? Stitch. I can't show you what though as it's a surprise for someone sorry. I never papercraft when things are on my mind I don't know why. I have done a card but that's it. When I polished this morning the cricut had loads of dust on it!!!!! Anyway I thought I would share with you what my production line was last time I blogged. I have made all of my teachers gifts for end of term. Early I know but I had no inspiration to scrap and I wanted to play with paper. Jake made the paperclips and decorated the bags and post it note holders. I just cut everything out and scored the card. These are the paper clips. The papers used are Papermania Rose garden. This is the post it note holders.
And here in full glory is the 9 completed bags. The instructions for the bags are on splitcoast. They are very simple to make.
I really enjoyed this project and it was great doing it with Jake. But the best bit was using up scraps from the drawer.
Well thank you for looking and head over to Julias blog for a nose around everyone elses desks. Oh and it's not all been gloom here have a look over at Kellys blog (CAESER CRAFTS) for a look at what else we've been up to.
