WOYWW 138

Happy WOYWW everyone! I've been embossing (supplies to the right and results under the Gypsy). Today is also the January Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. The challenge was to post a favorite 2011 project and a card inspired by that project. Have I mentioned how much I love my Gypsy? I do most of my designing on it and then can cut the pieces out with my Cricut. I've lost my Black Soot Distress Ink, so I'm using my Tuxedo Black Memento Ink which I also love, it's just different.

The project to the left is for a Cricut Craft Room Challenge (I have a real love/hate relationship with CCR) and a card I'm still working on under that (waiting for the right finishing bits to appear). And since it's the end of the month, it's also the final stretch for my Club Ruby Designers Design Team Projects (materials and projects are in the box).

So if you are wondering what's all this WOYWW, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander at crafty workspaces around the world :D. Better yet, take a picture of your workspace and join in the fun.

I have embossed with an embossing tool, but never a machine. Sounds like it might be quicker. Can't wait to see what you do.

Love all the crafty bits on your desk, I too love to emboss although I do prefer to use a machine rather than do it by hand!!

Have a great WOYWW, Luv Karen #80

I used to do embossing and haven't pulled it out in forever. I'm on the fence about CCR--I have MTC and don't want to jeopardize it.

Well I must say that I don't visit many blogs where the Gypsy is described as well used and loved...I guess it's like most gadgets, if you take time to master it, it proves invaluable. You're busy! Like the idea of that box full of finished as well as new stuff, very tantalising!
