WOYWW #274

 There must be more room on my desk, because when the ebosser once more failed to perform I got the Crossover out (shhh, it is hidden away in it's own purple carry bag on the floor usually and is my little secret). Well it cut using the Bigz XL die through the same card I tried on the ebosser, only it cut like butter perfectly first time which was a bit of a relief because I only tried it out on a few dies when I first got it and was worried I had wasted my money for nothing! Also I never have recieved my personalised plate for the machine, I must try and chase that up. So I ran a Tattered Lace die through 4 times with the metal shim under it and it almost cut all the way round, I think maybe 5 or 6 passes would have done it! The Tattered lace dies were a bargain on ebay, which again I thought were possibly a bad buy when I couldn't cut them with any of my die cutters, but I will persevere.
This was taken from the other end of the desk. You can see the house card in progress here, the finished card is shown in the previous post, and therefore you will realise that these photos were actually taken Tuesday. You can also see the Crossover's purple tote on the floor in this one (and a lot of other stuff).

Hey I am so early joining in the nosy round day of the week at The Stamping Ground - where the wonderful Julia started this trend of sharing our creative spaces messes weekly.


  1. What a pain that the die couldn't cut with the eBosser (I have one and love it ... most of the time). Thanks for sharing your workspace today. Hazel, WOYWW, #34 x

  2. Hi Cazzy, I've linked with WOYWW for the first time today and I'm really enjoying the snooping around.
    I looked at the slide show of all your cards! Wow! They are beautiful! The 'house card' is amazing! Well done.
    Happy WOYWW!

  3. I have never had a problem with the ebosser but I do have to admit that I got the cuttlebug out of the shed because it was quick and easy and now regret getting it out, I do love my ebosser. I am sure you could find some more room on the desk to fit a few more things, this really makes me smile. Thanks for sharing.

    Hugs Eliza & Yoda 49
    Happy WOYWW

  6. Your desk looks very busy, maybe you could find extra room by going upwards Lol! like an elevated desk!
    Have fun and happy crafting, Angela x 38

  7. What a desk! You definitely have some fun toys and dies. Too bad about your ebosser. I think I would be lost if my GC did not work!

    Have a good weekend! Hugs, Kathy Jo #44

  8. Sorry I am late coming back to you after your visit to my desk/planting table!
    All my little plants were bought from here - http://www.thompson-morgan.com/flowers/flower-plants/perennial-and-biennial-plants/perennial-best-value-collection/t47606TM

    Love your desk, mine space is running out of useable area now. I'm pleased to hear that you managed to cut the Tattered Lace dies, did you panic? I would've. lol
    Enjoy the rest of the week.
