WOYWW 71: Here's my desk while prepping for a 10-card class...
I'm in the thick of things trying to prep for another 10-card event that is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, and figured I'd take a photo for Julia's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday (WOYWW). This time it's fall/winter birthday cards. Everyone will stamp 2 each of 5 different card designs. It's up to me to come up with those designs! I just received some Autumn Spice dsp and that's what you see fanned out on my desk. I love the colors. They look so yummy! I also pulled a few stamp sets off the shelf that I'm thinking about working with - French Foliage, which will probably end up on this card, then Birthday Bakery, and Have a Seat. I'm not sure what the other two designs will feature... yet.
I usually start my projects with a stamp set, then pick the colors. I set one of the plastic totes I use to store my projects on the right side of my desk. I've already counted out the Crumb Cake envelopes and card bodies and they're in in the tote. As I cut each layer, it goes in a separate bag then into the tote. By the end, I've got all the ribbon, stamps, punches, card stock, and embellishments used to make my samples in the totes so it's easy and convenient for my customers to put together.
So that's a peek into my craziness today! I'm looking forward to seeing my friends again for a couple of hours of stamping fun. Hope you have fun stamping/crafting today.
