I had to miss my visit to the workspace of my friends last week, but I am popping in this week although there is not a lot to show on my desk.
I have been playing with vinyl in my Sihouette cameo machine this week. I made a successful card for my brother (See previous post) so now I am working on another one. But the design is your guess for now. It is another week or two before I can show it on here.
My desk is tidy because I have to clear sufficient space around the machine for the 12" x 12" mat to move right through it back and front. It is easier now I have re-sited it on the right hand side of my computer desk. It is now relatively simple to move a few bits. So here you can see the vinyl loaded into the cutter, the blue protective sheet for the adhesive carrier mat, and the brayer that I keep to roll over any material I am going to cut to ensure it isn't going to move half-way through the cut. I often add a strip of masking tape to each side as well, just to make sure!
For once there is no mug of tea in the picture. It is replaced this week with a bottle of water. It has been so hot that I drink water non-stop.
The only other thing on view is my latest project Life page that I have just printed out. It is waiting to be trimmed and filed in the album. I can be doing that while my design is cutting. I am almost up to date with my project again now. Just one more week to do. (Do you realise we are already in week 31 of this year!?) Here's what Week 29 was like for me.
I had better make a start on week 30 now. It should be an easy one. It was too hot to do much! But first I shall link this over to the blog of our lovely hostess Julia, who makes our mid-week so much fun. See you over there!
