WOYWW 191 - Intentions

My desk is full of intentions today!


It is my intention to post a tutorial today for the first card on my desk which I made in my second Trash to Treasure post yesterday.  I used the acetate packing of some Basic Grey magnets to make the fun shaker part of this card.  It is also my intention to give it away to someone that comments on my Trash to Treasure post.  Pop along if you'd like to be entered into the draw and to find out what else I made.

Next along my desk is another card that now belongs to Elizabeth aka silver scrapper (my first Trash to Treasure giveaway winner) and it is my intention to pop it in the post today so it will soon be winging its way to bonny Scotland.

The box you see at the end is something I intend to use for my third Trash to Treasure post - I have an idea I am mulling over!  It involves an old pair of jeans!!


As those of you whose eyes aren't as bleary as mine will notice I skipped this as I thought it would make a cheery shot on this dull morning.  It is my intention to have a play with some more of this lovely paper and embellishments called Seraphina.  Here are two cute cards that I have made with it already.  I am loving the little wooden embellishments.

Oh and last but not least it is my intention to empty that bin!!!!

All my intentions of  course depend upon whether or not I can drag myself away from visiting with the gang at WOYWW!!!  If you have no idea what that is then please follow this link!  But be warned you may not achieve all that you intend to today once you start hopping!!!!

Thanks for popping by x

  5. Hi Helen, thanks for stopping by. I am loving the bright colors of your cards and will be back to see the tutorial. The way that I keep the beads together on my stickpins is to use a little glossy accents between each bead. Add a drop, twist the bead around and then add the next bead. I hold all the pieces together and just lay it flat until they dry. Or you could add an earring back to hold them until they dry. #83

    1. Thanks Lucy. I have the next project mulling over in my brain. A friend of mine recently gave me lots of large flowers and I have no where to store them and so I am going to kill two birds with one stone!!! :-) x

  8. Well, I love both the bright cheery cards and that soft, grey sophisticated little number as well....gorgeous! And those wooden embellishments are really cute!

    Yes, there is another WOYWW crop, on Saturday 1st June in Burbage, Wiltshire. Julia did post about it a couple of weeks ago and will do many reminders again in the next couple of months, I'm sure. Are you thinking of coming?? Be great to meet you!

  15. Ha! Emptying the bin is something I don't do often enough. Usually despite my good intentions, it gets left until I am wading through all the bits that missed the bin! I love the little wooden birds. They are very cute. And I was interested to read how you made your alternative shaker card too. Kate x #67
