What's on my Workdesk Wednesday 170? lazer chippies and a crease mat.

Ok so yet another week has evaporated before my eyes!  Are you feeling the same way about this year?  I really need a pause button so I can catch my breath and then carry on.  I still have August up on my calendar and I am too scared to turn it over cos I might not like what I see!  I guess I am just going to have to suck it up and get on with it cos September is marching on regardless!

So what you see on my desk is the result of some shopping I did yesterday when I went to collect my die and crease mat that the Scrapbook Factory shop had especially ordered in for me.  Love that store it always makes a plan to get you what you want.  I had seen Tim use the crease mat in a video shot during CHA this July and realized I needed one to stop the paper cracking on the score lines when I die cut my pocket envelope and mini easel. (Tim thought he was the only one who had never heard of this crease mat...he was not alone...)

I got myself a new web cam during the week and have found that shooting my CC101 Student University videos with it have worked a real treat.  It still has some pixalization but I think that is our countries lack of band width speed to upload the image fast enough to You Tube.  The image quality is still much better than my "dinosaur" round one which I have had for 3 years or more... and it uploads instantly instead of taking 10 hours using my sony has been a learning curve of note!

So now I am off to see what you have to show on your desk for me to oogle at curtisy of our hostess Julia and her blog called Stamping Ground where she tries valiantly to keep us all in order...

Thanks for the visit



  1. Morning, Bella! Well done for ordering the crease mat... As I only scrap sporadically and do my shopping in batches like at this week's Convention, I made the mistake of assuming (yes I do know the old joke) that the wholesalers (who wish us & the stores like Carolyn xx to stop ordering independently & use their local agencies) would intelligently order all the bits required to make the dies work (In the Bag die needs the crease mat & the really big dies need wide extended cutting pads)-- Nope. Oh well. Enjoy creating-- will stop whinging now...

  2. Lots of goodies on your desk. Have fun. Sandy :) #50

  16. I have never heard of the crease mat. One more thing I will have to look up. Love those laser cuts embellishments. We have a number of brands in OZ and the detail they can achieve with the laser cutting is wonderful. I usually just spray them with glimmermist and dry. Always look great.
