Cottage Wall Photo Frame Tissue Box

This is the last of my desk items & though I have made tissue boxes before I haven't put a photo frame on the front. My desk has limited space (loads of work happens, honest) so I got 2 things for the price of 1!

The second picture show all my matching items, I didn't realise it at the time but they are worryingly close to Jobcentreplus Colours. It was an accident honest, I'm not that sad that my desk has to match my name badge!

  • Stamps - None, I promise I will get stamping again soon
  • Ink - None
  • Card - Rich Razzleberry
  • DSP - Cottage Wall
  • Accessories - Flower Fantasy Printed Window Sheets, Silver Elastic Cord, White Eyelet
  • Tools - Paper Cutter, Crop-o-dile
  • Adhesives - Sticky Strip, Dimensionals, Snail
  • Other Items - Tissue Box, Oval Nestability, Sizzix Frame Die
Hope you like the set & have a try, I made all these items in an evening!

Cottage Wall Memo Block

This is the second of my ne wdesk items, I bought some blocks a while ago & the notes are (almost) the same colour as the Rich Razzleberry. I cut a quarter circle from each of the sheets (yup, I'm bonkers) to make room for the 2 pencils, which I also colvered in the gorgeous DSP. If you don't have any of this lovely papers yet, get some before I decide to buy it all!

  • Stamps - None again, what's wrong with me?! You could stamp each sheet (I've done that before) but it's for work so I haven't bothered.
  • Ink - No inky fingers on this one!
  • Card - None required
  • DSP - Cottage Wall
  • Accessories - you could wrap it up with some of the Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon, but it's present for myself!
  • Tools - Paper Cutter
  • Adhesives - Sticky Strip
  • Other Items - Memo Block, 2 Pencils (from the desk tidy set)
Happy Crafting!

Cottage Wall Desk Tidy

I made this tidy from one of the Asda bargains & I love it so much I kept it! It now sits happliy on my desk at work, where there have been quite a few admiring it. I suppose I'll be making quite a few of these from now on! I adapted it from the last one by putting a post-it note holder on the front & I used a couple of my precious Hodgepodge items.

You might have noticed I used a very tiny piece of Flower Fantasy Printed Window Sheet in the label holder, one of my other new desk items has some of it, pop back in a few days to see it.

  • Stamps - None on this project, the DSP is gorgeous enough!
  • Ink - None again!
  • Card - Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Orchid Opulence, Whisper White
  • DSP - Cottage Wall
  • Accessories - Flower Fantasy Printed Window Sheets, Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware
  • Tools - Paper Cutter, Paper Snips, Eyelet Border Punch, Cropodile
  • Adhesives - Sticky Strip, Snail, Dimensionals
  • Other Items - Desk Tidy, 2 Pens, Post-it Notes
Thanks for looking,

Cottage Wall Cards

This is the other Stampers 6 project from a couple of weeks ago, they made one of the 2 versions by using either side of the DSP. We have a fallen in love with the Cottage Wall DSP. I nearly had a heart attack when I tried to order some packs for my ladies as it said it was out of stock! Luckily it was a computer glitch & it arrived a few days later. The central flower used the "rock'n'roll" technique.

  • Stamps - Fresh Cuts
  • Ink - Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence
  • DSP - Cottage Wall
  • Card - Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Fresh Cuts Notes
  • Accessories - Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon, Clear Rhinestone Brads
  • Tools - Paper Cutter, Paper Snips, 5-Petal Flower Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, Mat Pack
  • Adhesives - Snail, Dimensionals
Happy Crafting,
