What's on your workdesk Wednesday? 218

Hello everyone.

Back again to a desk hopping Wednesday after a lovely Holiday, now all I need to do is find some creative time!

I took on holiday a box full of stamped images from the JoFy collections by Paper Artsy. I was preparing them for use to decorate my printers tray. I coloured them all with water soluble pencils and cut them out (most of this was done in the car on the long journey!)

As it turned out they were not right for the project I had originally planned so I set about seeing what designs I could come up with. You can see some of them in the previous two posts and there will be some more over the next few days.

So here is my desk.......

And some of the images

So if you want to join in with the desk hopping fun pop over to Stamping Ground and prepare to take a journey.


  1. Oh my life, car journey or not, that's a patient amount of cutting. No doubt at all that you'll find a perfect way to use them...they are lovely.

  2. You have the patience of a saint to do all that trimming and cutting. Can't wait to see the end result.

  3. Love your workspace! And the cards are soooo cute, wonderful!! Happy WOYWW!

  4. We can't do anything on car journeys, if we don't look at the horizon we get ill. We love your images.

  5. Clever you cutting in a car! I'm like the bears and get ill very easily on long car journeys. Those cut-outs look fab! I'm sure you'll find a great use for them soon, they are so pretty. Julie Ann xx #41

  6. Wow, all that cutting in the car. Another one like the bears here, cant do a think but look at horizon, but then my hubby drives like a maniac anyway so would have no chance of doing much cutting or much else really.

    sure you will find a new use for them

  8. What a great use of the time you were in the car
    I love those stamps myself and did a scrapbook layout with them which was on my last weeks desk

  9. Wow that's a lot of fussy cutting!!! Happy WOYWW,and thank you for sharing your lovely's!

  10. I'm with the bears - couldn't do cutting unless I made myself really ill. Car journeys have to be spent watching out the front window - not even the side one!! But what you have produced is gorgeous. Have fun putting them into new projects.

  11. Wow I am totally loving your organised workspace with all that wonderful wooden shelving specific to your supplies. I too am not good at doing anything in a car, so you have done fabulously to cut your designs out so perfectly. Can't wait to see them put to use. Happy WOYWW! Danie #14

  12. Sometimes it's nice to have a box full of stuff all made. At some point they'll be just the perfect thing for a project. :-)

    Happy Woyww,

  13. They are so pretty but if I tried cutting them out in the car I probably would've snipped them in off or leaves of or something. LOL. Brigita #108

  14. Oh WOW is all I can say...first coloring and then cutting them all out! You have a lot of patience my friend. Sorry they didn't work on the original project! Thanks for sharing. Sorry I am so late getting around this week but I am making it around finally! Hope you had a great weekend! Vickie #36
