WOYWW and My Memory Box Dies Crush

Good morning everyone!  Well, it's morning as I write this, anyway.  Sitting here drinking my tea and hoping that the sun comes out today. 

So, it's time for WOYWW again and if you were by here last week, you read that I was going to play a game this week!  Let's start with my desk.


Yep, still a mess.  I have been happily crafting away and it shows!  Now for the game.  Every week when I am peeking around at all of your desks, it always makes me think of "I Spy".  Considering how much stuff is usually piled on my desk I figured we might as well play.  The winner is going to get a couple of stamps from me!  Ready?  How many ink pads can you see on my desk?  Just put your answer in the comments to play.  If more than one person gets the correct answer, I will put their names in a hat and draw a winner.  I do realize that we have players from all over the world, and that is fine!  I will announce the winner next Wednesday.

OK, now on to my new crush...Memory Box Dies!  I bought one just over a week ago, and I have been restraining myself ever since from running right back to the store to buy more.  They are just so pretty!  My will power is just about drained and I am probably hitting the stamp store today...shhhhh...don't tell the hubby ;)



Made this little box the other day for Christmas.  I used the Snowflake Corner Die (Memory Box), and also a Scalloped Circle Die (Spellbinders).  The patterned paper is from 12 Days of Christmas (My Mind's Eye).  Finished it off with some Red Stickles on the reindeer which is an old TAC stamp that I have. 

Going to go cruise around and check out everyone's desks for this week.  Hope everyone is having a great week!

Happy Stamping,

Michelle

I love the reindeer topped box with the gorgeous swirly cut out snowflakes - great fun!! As a non paper-crafter, I have absolutely no idea about what are stamp pads or not - but I love the idea of WOYWW I-Spy!. So, my guess is 13!!

The memory box is great! I'm so behind the times, I don't have a die cutting machine :-(

As for the I spy game -- I'm thinking Pam is right. Eleven is my number too!

Happy WOYWW #82

That die cut is bee-oo-tifull!! I've fallen in love with Cheery Lynn dies recently, they look very similar!

The dies are lovely, and what you've done with that one is marvellous, so pretty. So against the wall, under the window, sort of on top of a box..what is that? I only count 8, I can't tell if the TAC pile is ink pads, never seen them before!

sandee said...

mmmm....I'm thinking 14...lol...messy desk=happy desk!

Amber S said...

Well, if it helps your desk looks clean compared to mine! I LOVE dies and can't get enough. Your project looks great. I'm guessing 14.

Vicki Dutcher said...

I am right there with regarding those dies! Do they cut like butter or what! Nice messy desk - sign of a great stamper! :)

I look forward to working with you over the next year!!

I love the idea of a memory box. That reindeer is a prancin!

Depending on whether that TLC stack is pads or not it is either 9 or 17! Interesting challenge! I should try this and see how many pads people think I have!! I love snooping the desks! Love your new die! Have a great week and Happy Holidays! Thanks for sharing. Vickie #35

You desk looks just like mine lol. I think I can see 15 ink pads, but can't zoom in for a bigger look.

Love the memory boxes. I would be back at the shop buying as many as I could carry lol.

Thanks for the inspiration!!

I'm going with 8 on the ink pads, I also can't tell if the TAC pile are inks or something else! Love, love, love the reindeer box, and you need to get in line with the Memory Box crush sistah!! I was there first, lol!! I haven't been quite as restrained as you though and now have six stamps, four paper packs and eight dies since the end of September!! My local stamp store is loving me!
