WOYWW #278

Hi everyone,

I'm scheduling this post ahead of time because we'll be away in Budapest for a few days - hopefully it will publish itself as we're on our way home and I'll be back in time to link up over at Julia's Stamping Ground before the witching hour!

In case you're wondering - it's What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday - when arty crafty peeps from all over the world gather together at Julia's to share what's happening on the workdesks this week.

Here's what's on mine as I'm leaving it today ...


... all ready to play as soon as I've unpacked next Wednesday! These are pieces were cut from my stash of paper scraps and I'll be using them to decorate the inside of my tag books. It really did a great job of thinning out my scrap stash and it's a fun way make good use of the last piece of some of my favourite papers ...


I need the smaller plain pieces as well, to create a space for writing details about the tags on. Here are some of the nearly finished tag books ...


A few people have asked how I put these together - they're just a simple paper hinge construction and there are loads of tutorials on YouTube, but if you would like to see how I made mine, please check out my previous post or click on the tutorials tab at the top of my blog, hope you find it useful :o)

That's all for now, I'd better get packing! Thanks for popping in today, hopefully I'll see you over at Julia's later, just in the nick of time!

Cheerio for now

Hope you had a lovely time in Budapest! I hope it wasn't all work. Perhaps you found some unusual scrappable material and supplies.... My cousin married a Hungarian girl and she is always showing me beautiful pictures of Budapest.
Thank you for letting me look over your shoulder. Have a good week.
