WOYWW #105

There has been progress on my workdesk this week; I have decorated the labels for my boxes.
A re-cap in case you weren't here last week - I bought A5 files (from Rymans for those that asked) to store my acrylic stamps in.  I've sorted them by manufacturer for now and used some of my favourite stamps to for the spine so that I can see which is which.  I think this one turned out best.
It's my Tim Holtz, Paperartsy, Pink Paislee and similar file.  I already need to make some Christmas versions for some of the files and I'm sure others will outgrow their spaces, but I can just stamp another piece of paper and stick it over the top.

Last week on WOYWW it was, of course, the second anniversary PiF.  Mine went to Neil.   It left me first class on Saturday, but in case it hasn't got there yet - Neil, look away now.
I used some cream shrink plastic, which I stamped with a Papermania tag, added an Anna Griffin initial and then decorated with free magazine stamps.  That gave me the WOYWW element, which I then made into the bag charm.
I used Brilliance ink for the butterfly which gave it a lovely shimmer.
My PiF was a lovely notebook from Angela made using here WOYWW digi paper - Black and whatever.  It's a plain digi paper which just prints in black so that it can be printed on to any colour of paper.  It looks very effective and it's thrifty too, not using up all that precious coloured ink or if your printer only works in black ink.
The sun is out this morning, lets hope it stays there!  Have a good Wednesday.
