I love it when Joann’s (or any other craft store) sends out coupons that are good on regular AND sale priced items.  That’s when I pick up lots of the little things that it seems silly to bother with a 40 or 50% coupon.


Joann’s always has their magazines for 10% off, so those special coupons are the only way I can get this magazine for less than $10.

For some reason, I like the UK cardmaking publications better than the US ones.

Of course, the reason could be the free stamps.


I saw this set and was SOLD.  Oh, yes. 🙂


So I started working on the projects in the magazine, which also came with papers to go with the stamps.


I made one project, the little box.  It’s cute, but meh.  Then I ran out of ambition to do any more. Probably because the sweet little pastel calicoes are so just not my speed.

Now that I think about it, how fun would these stamps be with some grunged up papers and steampunk accents?   That’s more like it….

Are you wondering why I’m posting a pic of my desktop? Well, it’s What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, the day to see what other creative folks from all over the world have on their desks. Join in, it’s fun!

Some desks are neat, some desks are messy, but all are interesting. 🙂

Have a good one and happy creating!

  1. Pastels are good for spring. Besides, trying out different styles just confirms that steampunk rules. 😀

  2. Yep grunge/Steampunk that’s the ticket. Or add some distressing to the papers. Pastelly papers look good with a little brown around the edges. Happy WOYWW! Nan #3

  3. I like your little box so cute. I went to the doctors today and had to stop by the Newsagency to get a few magazines to read, and bingo this one was there I was so excited to get it, now I have to use the stamps, they are so devine but it will have to wait until tomorrow now.

    Happy Belated WOYWW
