What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday Feb 20

Here is my desktop in all it's glory! I have the typical tools and supplies on my desk - some left over DSP, card stock, inks and markers, etc.  I also have the one thing no one should be without - a Candy Stash! I use that for a quick energy burst to get me going... Like our host of WOYWW, my cards are finished! Everything is piled up ready to be put away though...tidying won't take long! Initially, I only needed one Thank You card, but I wanted to use up my scraps and since trying to stay only with Stampin' Up! supplies, I have been really missing my washi tapes! Sooo...I decided to use some SU DSP scraps and make them look a bit like Washi Tape.  What do you think?

Today, I worked on a couple Thank You cards using Vintage Verses stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration flyer. You can get this stamp set FREE with a $50 purchase from my online store.  My weekly color scheme uses the 2012-14 In-Colors - Primrose Petals, Gumball Green, and Summer Starfruit.  I used those colors to make my cards. On my desk, you can see my Stampin' Write Markers in Primrose Petals and Summer Starfruit as well as my Classic Stampin' Pads in Gumball Green and Primrose Petals. For both of my cards, I used the Print Poetry DSP stack from the 2013 Spring Catalog. I just love using this paper - it coordinates perfectly with the 2012-14 In-Colors.  You can also see my retired Stampin' Up! Mat Pack. I used that to set the brads on my first Thanks card.

There are also a few non-Stampin' Up! products on my desk - my Fiskars Circle Cutter and my We Are Memory Keepers Brad Setter. I have had those for a while - love my circle cutter - I have the Martha Stewart circle cutter too but I really don't like using it. The Fiskars one is by far the best for the money.

Thanks for stopping in to take a look at my desk. I hope you come back again soon and feel free to post a comment! Many thanks to all of you WOYWW posters for stopping in and bringing a little traffic to my humble little blog. Happy Stamping...

FYI:  Participating in WOYWW posts is a bit tough for me. I rarely get to work during the day so I am always crafting/posting the night before.  So this IS from Wednesday's work desk, it just happens to be the wee early morning hours - from just after midnight to about 2 a.m. Wednesday morning. See, I happen to work evenings and babysit during the day. My most productive times are late nights. If I am lucky enough to get to spend time in my craft room during the day I am also working on entertaining a 2 1/2 yr old at the same time. Needless to say, she handles a scissors quite well, has her own ink and stamps, and even knows how to use punches and glue sticks! Way to go Omah!!!  She is well on her way to becoming the next stamper in my family! 

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

Disclaimer:  I am a new Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  I am working on replacing all my craft supplies with only Stampin' Up! product, but I will occasionally use some of my non-SU stash. Bare with me as I work to replenish my stash with only SU product. I will be highlighting new products as they come in and I will always point out great alternatives to my non-SU product that are Stampin' Up!. Thanks for understanding.


  1. Beautiful cards and design x

  6. great cards. I love the colours used by SU. Unfortunately their products are not available in Spain though I do stock up on a few when I visit the family in UK. Kate x #84

  7. Good job with the faux washi tape, Wanda! I know several SU demonstrators and they don't stick strickly to SU products, except during a workshop, so don't be too restrictive on yourself. It's all about having fun!!

    Thanks for taking the time to come by the Playhouse and leave me some love! Have a wonderful week! Darnell #48

  8. Really lovely cards, especially the colors and a great job on the faux washi.

    Happy WOYWW
