WOYWW My NUMBER8 and Julia's52 and WOYWWAC

What on earth!!!!! HMMMM. Now Julia I know you said-something for the desk so I put a little ribbon on it and hung it up. LOL But what on earth is it? Ages ago you talked about possibly meeting up at a show-maybe Birmingham. I've never been and it's doubtful I could get there due to the ole circumstances but if by any chance I do get there I'll be wearing this badge.
A shot without the clutter behind. Central portion is made of some shrink plastic that is supposed to go through your printer. I got it to play with but couldn't.......Determination paid off when I realised mine didn't have a shiny side until I peeled off the plastic layer. I printed on a scrap piece of paper and attached my shrink to it with magic tape. The image is mirrored 'cos it's on the back and it has to be lighter so that when it shrinks the colour is ok. The backing is ordinary white shrink plastic. I drew around a nestability frame and punched the holes with an extra large punch. Peel off pens for the lines and writing. Flowers coloured with sakura stardust pens and crayons. Butterfly is an SU punch stamped with an SU flower.
The little flower is a stamp from Make Your Mark in York-you can see it on the shelf in the first picture.
Just in case you would like a glimpse of the desk here we have last night's leftovers. Julia says shopkeeper gal doesn't see the point of chandeliers but a girl can never have too much glamour in life so bring on the diamond tiaras the chandeliers and the black lace. I wish
Lets hear it for Julia on this special day -three cheers hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray,----HIP HIP HOORAY.
If you don't understand what I'm going on about get over to The Stamping Ground and find out. Join in the fun and enjoy it-it's just for fun.

  14. Fabulous badge! You've made me think about the stack of shrink plastic I have lurking about somewhere. I must do something with it!

  15. Great. I bought some shrink paper too yesterday, but mine needs to be heated with my heat gun.
    I wanted to make a necklace out of it, but waited too long to put a hole in it, so it broke off under my Big Bite. Silly me, now I have to start all over again! My dad already called me crazy for buying all that stuff anywayz. We crafters need to be a little crazy to keep us a little bit sain :)

  17. That is so cute ...pretty ....fun ....if I ever go I will look out for your badge ...but like you I will probably never get to one.
    By the way ...me and shrink plastic do NOT go together ...not sure why but it NEVER straightens out for me .

  31. Hi, sorry I should have come back yesterday - the Tattered Florals measurements from the box are (die size, which I assume is what you need) - 5 1/2 x 6 x 5/8 - that's inches (I'm no good with centimetres being (just) a child of the 50's - but that's 13.87 cm x 15.24 cm x 1.59 cm. It doesn't say if it's compatible with the wizard, only mentions the big shot and big kick sizzix. Good luck.

  32. Maybe we should all have badges!
    Brilliant!
    Thanks for the info re card sizes etc. I'm a skinflint and use A4 from the PaperMill Shop because it's cheap! 12x12 works out quite expensive, especially if I mess up!

    I'm very much liking the look of your ribbon and lace - you're tempting me to treat myself to a little shopping "trip"
