What's On Your Workdesk?

Here is another week of What is on your desk. Here is mine.

As you can see I have turned my dinning table into a one big mass! The mass is actually piped from serveral weeks of work. I guess it is a problem due to lack of storage available in my house at the moment. I seem to just pipe thing up and now things are impossible to find!

I will be returning to work from next week. So i guess my WOWW pic will be taken at the weekend. And the dinning table will probably stay as it is until the following weekend. Luckily (or unluckily) we dont eat at our dinning table so I don't have to clean my mass everyweek.

This week I carried on my Tilda's addiction.

I have used S4-352 Shapeabilities Spellbinders Set, Spiral Blossom Two 1 Die to make the flower and Tilda - cheerleader stamp. The backgroud die is from cART-Us Lace Die With Love - LK1103.

Handmade Monday

This week I have made three cards. It is because I want to practice my card making skills. From reading other card making blogs I discovered quilling and magnolia Tilda stamp.

So the first card is to practice my quilling technique. The flowers are not perfect but I am getting better as I made more and more. It is another thing which you can made loads in front of TV.

The second and third cards are to practice my colouring technique. I have used Promarker on my colour.

I drawn the tree and stamps loads of leaves on it. The flowers are using Marianne design die then colour with Promarker.

Birthday Celebrations

It was Bebe's birthday celebration on Sunday. We went to a Chinese Floating Resturant in London to celebrate her birthday. Even though I do not think Bebe knew what was going on but she sure had fun when her cake with a candle on arrived. She didnt know what to do with it so She decided to catch the frame herself. Luckily she didn't and the candle was actually blown by me....

Thanks for her lovely Aunty to make her a cake and it seems it goes with the theme that I have been using to create BeBe's card. (we didn't compare notes before hand so everyone must know what BeBe likes now)

And I also make two birthday badges - One for BeBe and one for BeBe's Cousin - He is going to be four today. We just came back from his birthday party and he wore the badge to school today.

Here was BeBe's birthday meal. Yum Yum!

I have also created a card at the weekend.

The base card is Single Fold Cards - Deckled Edge - 114x178mm - Hi-5 Pearl
Morphing Mauve and the background card is from "Creative Background Paper Mixed Packs" - Scrolls. The image stamp from gorjuss (Gorjuss Clear Stamp Set - Winter Wonder) and the leaves are from "Woodland Folk Clear Stamps - Perfect Day". The umbrella is hand drawn and I have stamped the leaf one by one to create a batch. I have used a Tsukineko Ultimate Metallic - Gold to apply on the "miss you" stamp.

Card for Autumn

I have been very productive this week (in term of crafting) I have made Bebe's birthday card. See my previous post for card layout. I also made a card for Autumn.

I have used my promarker to colour my picture. I love it. It was so much fun. I don't know why I didn't like Art when I was a child, always thought I was rubbish at it and never proceed further. I wish I did now and might not end up in IT. The three leaves are made by Sizzix big die. Again I have colour them in promarker and put some glitter on it.

I have also made a bracelet and a pair of matching earrings this week. Will get the picture posted when hubby have time to take the pic. I got the inspiration from a vintage store in london. They combined pearls and crystal together. Even though my version is a tone down version but I think it is still quite pretty.

Today is Bebe's first birthday. I will post some of the pic of her celebration laters.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges.

What is on your desk?

This is my first week participating what is on my desk? As I haven't got my own desk I can only Show you the dinning table that I use to make my card. If I make jewellery I will only make it on my sofa. So normally all the craft materials will be all laying around on the floor :). It is not very child safely so I will make sure Bebe is miles away when I have my stuff laying around or someone is holding Bebe.

As you can tell the baby monitor is on when I took this picture so Bebe is asleep.

Bebe will be one this week so I was working on Bebe's birthday card.

The pic is not great but you can roughly see the design. Bebe loves Elmer so I found a tag that is attached to one of her toy. I hope Bebe won't mind I cut the tag off.

Card making

This week I have made some birthday cards - it seems September is a popular months for birthday! I've made three cards one for my newphew who is going to be four,

I have bought a Sizzix big shot machine recently and it is so much fun. It is fairly easy to use (as long as you also got a multi-platform) It cut through felt no problem. I have used one of their hello kitty die to make the rabbit and little ducks. They are so cute! I also use Swarovski flat back to decorate around the card.

The second one is for my Aunty

And the last one is for my musical crazy cousin. I manged to pick up a leaflet of her favourite musical yesterday.

This is my first time making cards so hopefully there will be many more to come. I hope they will get to Hong Kong on time for their birthday!
