WOYWW 246 - New Goodies & Cards

This has been an especially busy week for me, but I might add, quite productive...So excuse while I pat myself the back.....I managed to get a play day in with Eliza... As usual we got up to all sorts of mischief...and then some. I missed my bestie so we made up for lost time, producing cards, faux leather (made with my homemade ink refresher) and a tag or two. Unfortunately, Eliza has all the photo's on her camera, check out her blog for these. If she gets time to put them up.
Note to Self: Take your camera everywhere....

I made 3 flower pot cards out of left over papers, never made them before, so I was amazed they turned out, I mean they are OK, nothing to write home about... but face it folks, better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick....

Plus I have a few goodies, I don't normally by paper packs but could not resist the new DoCrafts packs.... there's a Martha Stewart punch. Couture Creations quick release die paper.... Then of course you are all wondering what's in the green box....aren't you? 

That my crafty friends is the brand spanking new Brother ScanNCut machine. It's amazing.  I can use my own artwork or stamp an image, scan it  then cut it out. It will resize, add a border....fab machine.  I loathe fussy cutting with a passion.... this does it all.....Check it out on Youtube. But only after you participate in the WOYWW blog hop, pop over to see Julia at the Stamping Ground.. Say hi and snoop the desks.

Hope you all have a great week and happy WOYWW.


  1. I have seen the Scan n Cut a lot lately - you are going to have so much fun with that! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #13

  2. Your cards are beautiful. You have to show some of the die cuts you make with your new toy. #1

  3. One of those machines is mine, yippee, hoorah, jump for joy, I am so excited to get it, but just as happy to look at it knowing my bestie is looking after it. I will get it tomorrow and I can't wait. The play day was fun, can't believe how much we crammed into one day and I loved every second of our time.

    Hugs Eliza who needs to get her act into gear and post

  4. Look at all that new stash have fun playing with it
    hugs Nikki #5
    I have candy too

  5. Took me forever to see the MS punch. Finally saw it. I am NOT a fan of MS and her overpriced "stuff," but I have to admit, her punches are the only ones I've ever been able to use and they don't break on me, or get so dull they no longer work, even when I run sandpaper through them.

    I've never heard of the Scan n Cut, but I'm sure it's wonderful. I'm still waiting to be able to afford a Sizzex! Happy WOYWW from # 3.

  6. The scan n cut sounds amazing and your new goodies .... look like lots of fun.

  9. I have o say I was tempted by the Scan&Cut but the price here in the UK (as a shopping channel exclusive for like 6 months) is massive. DH and I agree - being on the cutting edge of technology is nice, but the bleeding edge, before all the kinks have been worked out, not so much :) I'm almost more tempted for a Thermofax machine but that is monstrously expensive too.... I'm giving it some time to see what the over-all long term assessment of the S&C is so I'll be watching this space! Look forward to seeing all you create.

    An early Happy WOYWW!
