Hi Guys!!

WOYWW again already...busy week this week. Continuing from last weeks post...those of you who had a guess what my latest purchase was....well only one person came close. The items in the photo were two additional heads for my new Sew Easy kit that I treated myself to from QVC the other day when it was TSV. Haven't had much chance to play yet, but I had a quick go and it seems good.

Last week I also mentioned how fed up I was becoming with peeloffs as sentiments. Well quite a few of you were interested to see what I came up with instead. I have created myself a template file for my cutter. It is still a work in progress in that I am adding sentiments to the list all the time as I need them, and of course I can change the font whenever I like to whatever I like too! The label shapes are a bit special. They were free files I found on the internet. A few months ago I stumbled almost by chance upon the blog of a very talented and inspirational lady, Penny Duncan. She has made some beautiful items and best of all when she creates something she very generously shares the files she creates for free. If you don't know Penny at all, please take a minute to check out her blog here. She is such a lovely lady. She has very kindly said that she doesn't mind me posting the screenshot of the file I have made to show those who were interested.
I whenever I need a sentiment I load my cutter with whatever paper/card I like, choose my sentiment and shape and place them together on the sheet and change the colour of the label and text. I then use my Gazelle to write the sentiment and then cut the label around the sentiment. I can use up all my scraps of paper and card to do this by positioning carefully on the page. It is a simple idea, but has been really useful already. If you would like free files for all these shaplies and more, go to Penny's blog, don't forget to say hello to her too!
On my desk this week....I have made a few more cards but am now trying to get my Christmas cards done. So I have tree shapes cut ready to go in the little box on the right and I am outlining them with a quickie glue pen to add turquoise glitter before mounting them onto the cards which have Merry Christmas printed all around the border also in Turquoise. Quite a simple design from me this year..

Finally it just remains for me to wish you all a happy desk browsing day and to say if you have no idea what I am talking about, go over to the Stamping Ground to check out Julia's blog and find out..
