What's on My Workdesk Wednesday 231? Tim Stencils

Hello fellow desker, sorry I was AWOL last week but it was my sons birthday on Thursday and somehow time ran away with me...

Welcome to my desk over in Cape Town, South Africa where you can see front and centre, the three latest stash acquisitions.

Apparently these are still not available from our wholesalers to purchase here yet, but a friend and I got into cahoots and ordered these on line.  I could not wait any more.

I have already used the measuring tape one in class last Saturday and the ladies really loved it.

So this is me, short and sweet as the rest on my desk is debris from projects and classes that is waiting to be put away.

Now I am off to see what you are up to on your desk over at Julia's place on Stamping Ground.



  1. Oooh I have two of those stencils...I am now coveting the tape measure one, as I haven't seen that before..can't wait to see what you do with them. Cx #27

  2. Oh what fun looking stencils, can't wait to see what you make with them, don't forget to share!

  3. I have been eye-ing off those stencils too and been managing to resist the temptation, but I might break down and get them soon.

    Great crafty desk this week thanks for sharing.

    Happy WOYWW

  4. Well done on grabbing some of the stencils! Hope you have a great week, thanks for stopping by already! helen 7

  5. Ooh clever you getting the stencils before they are out. I like the idea of the measuring tape one. Just leave all the bits of mess on your desk, why waste time cleaning up. When it gets too big it will fall on the floor and then it's out of your way ;) Good to know you were quite "handy" when your were at school.
    Have a great week.

  6. Fab stencils - I have not seen them before. Am eagerly awaiting some work from you with them featured.
    have a nice day and thanks for visiting me earlier.

  8. Oh I just saw those at Michael's last week. I look forward to seeing how you use them... Carole # 72

  9. Very organised boxes on the back wall. Have fun with your stencils

  10. Love the new stencils! Tim (& Ranger) are marketing geniuses -- it's hard to resist their products. The "hook" with these is being tag-sized. I'm sure I will have to adopt some sometime. :-) Happy WOYWW from Laura #10 (and thanks for visiting!)

  11. oh wow, I so love those stencils, I must get some of those to try, I can see why you were so eager to get your hands on them!

  12. That burlap texture stencil looks like it would be especially fun and interesting to play with. I can see using it with embossing paste. Happy experimenting!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and for the kind comments.

    Happy Woyww,

  13. Cool - I like the look of those. I am taming my stencil collection today and may have to find the room for a few new ones...

    Happy WOYWW!

  17. Golly, what a lot to look at on your desk - very creative space you have there. Enjoy using it all.

  18. I got them too :D I managed to get from Niki Zipp here who is a stamper she didn't have the burlap one... I need to go and see what he brought out so I can see which ones I still need but I love them and I am loving the Creative Chemistry... couldn't do it while I was away cause I was using a 3g connection but now I am home I can catch up :D

  19. Stencils are so useful aren't they?I haven't seen all these.Must be new-ish ones.

  23. Oh you lucky dog you! I'm still waiting for my stencils which were ordered eons ago. Seems they're having difficulty keeping up with demand. (the peeps at ranger ) show us what you did with the measuring tape one, please. A late...Thanks for the earlier visit! WOYWW hugs! Nan G #20
