What's on my Workdesk Wednesday 285? Demo tags

Hello fellow Desker from Julia's place.

Welcome to the chaos that abounds on my desk as I prep for my class on Saturday.  I am doing a demo class of Tim Holtz techniques.

I have just finished the sample tags and now have to put all the required inks, dabbers, applicators and bits into the plastic container in the top right hand corner of this pic.  Some of it is already there, I just have to die cut the keyholes and I am done!

Now I am off to see what I can see on your desk!


  1. Great tags, Bella. Hope the class goes well, it looks like you're pretty prepared... Have a lovely week. Helen 4

  2. Can you come over to Wales anytime soon? I'd love to have someone show me how to make gorgeous tags like those!
    have a happy week

  4. great looking tags Bella. I love the Tim Holtz style projects you do! Have fun with your class. Have a great week. Vickie #17

  5. Hum. I'm guessing it's a real life in person class and not a blog class? A bit to far to travel but hope you share the projects at the end. I've never manage more than about four of the, one year :) Oh well....

    Happy happy WOYWW!

  23. I Love all those TH technical bits and bobs I really need to do some tags so I can remember them easily..... Maybe in the new year too much to do now .... I should write a list LOL

  24. Hi Bella,

    I love the look of your desk! I even have the cupcake stamp, but alas, haven't used it yet. I'll have to dig it out and get it dirty! Have fun at your class. I bet you are a great instructor!

    Thank you for visiting me earlier. I'm slowly making my way around to desks. It will be an all weekend affair!
    Happy belated WOYWW,
    Peace, Kay (12)

  25. I love those tags! I do like TimHoltz but I don't buy any of his stuff because you need sooo many things to make one tag. (I can't afford it. For me the postage is more than the product....) But I have splashed out on 3 or 4 different distress ink pads and I use them all the time.
    Sorry I'm late, but I like to take my time and look at everybody's blog. I read it all and look at the links etc.
    Thank you for letting me look over your shoulder.
    Have a good week,


Its always lovely to hear from you , so thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment.
