What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday 196

Welcome if you are visiting here via Stamping Ground Blogspot
If you wish to find out more about WOYWW hosted by Julia x 
please check them out and join in the fun.

All I can say is Wow what a week! 
Time definitely grew wings and flew straight past me.

This week I devoted lots of time to Digital crafting.
I am blessed to be Involved with a Great Team of People
called The Nifty Designers and we were working undercover 
on a Digital collaboration which launched Tuesday.
So proud to be a part of something So Beautiful x
Also Thank you to three Wonderful ladies
Gill Heather and Sherry who are absolute Angels.

I made quite a few Digital pages, think this 
one turned out to be my favourite so far.
Made using my latest kit and the collab.

Last week I promised to show my desk,
so this is where I create digitally.
Did squeeze in crafting prep on my table for handmade projects, 
using assorted dies, the vagabond and some Ink.
Need to finish off and create something with all
the different elements now.

Have a Wonderful creative week
Happy Crafting Everyone
Heather x

Am so impressed by your digi prowess! And that you sit at a desk todo it..I can see me trying to balance everything on my lap and getting very cross! But yeah, any sort of computer work - whiles away the week without any problem, huh!

Gibby Frogett said...

Morning Heather, Happy WOYWW.. thanks for visiting earlier too. Lovely dies and paper, look forward to seeing what you do with them. Is the butterfly a Marianne die? Have a good day... Gill xxx #45

Neet said...

Can see why you chose that digital LO as your favourite but I love the background you show on the penultimate photo. Fab!
Just returned from hotel breakfast so resting on the bed to let it settle before I go out and see what the shops have to offer (tee hee, shopping is a great pastime)
Hugs, Neet xxx36

SueH said...

I’ve tried doing a few digital LO’s in the past and I’m really not very good at it but your page is absolutely beautiful and I love that soft shade of Blue. Good luck with the launch next week.
It looks like you’ve been busy inking, embossing and die cutting too……wonder what you’re going to make with it all?

Happy Crafting!

Sandy Leigh said...

Absolutely beautiful digi-creativeness going on there! And, a stamp with a handle! I think ALL my stamps are just big clumsy blocks. I've got my eye on some clear stamps now though. Thank you for visiting me too! Happy WOYWW! Sandy Leigh #106

butlersabroad said...

Very pretty new digital work Heather, love the calming blues. I like how organised you are with your card making too, all the pieces neatly laid out! You must think some of us crafters are such slobs, lol!!

BJ said...

Although I love your digital pages, the real stuff is much more my scene. Loving all your elements, are you entering Tim Holtz's tattered florals challenge per chance? Thanks for visiting me this week BJ #69

Heather Alger said...

Hi BJ, I did see his challenge, all the entries look so amazing, am thinking about entering but not sure yet?

Heather Alger said...

Trust me Brenda it wasn't organised before that! I have a really small crafting table though so have to tidy as I go in order to have space to work :)

fairy thoughts said...

Hi the digi layout is very pretty but I like to get down and dirty with the real stuff... glad to see you do both, all the elements look interesting, I brought mowed lawn the other day.... now it is my favouite colour of the moment.
thanks for sharing and have a good week

Erika said...

Heather I love your digi work, stunning. Thanks for the visit and have a super Wednesday, hugs Erika.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Heather, your digi layout is absolutely beautiful - are you able to print it off yourself or do you have to get it done at a print shop? Just curious as the only digi layouts I've printed off have been A4 size. Like all the embossing and inking you're doing - that leafy folder is pretty. Hope you've had a good WOYWW. Elizabeth x #26

Lunch Lady Jan said...

I like all the elements you have made up, you'll have to show the finished article next week!! Thanks for dropping by my blog :)
Hugs, LLJ 32 xxxx

Lisa-Jane said...

Oooh Tattered Florals is one of my most favourite dies! Thanks for sharing.

Heather Alger said...

Hi Elizabeth,
The software I use Craft Artist 2 allows you to make custom sizes I like to work at all different ones. 8x8 for scrapbooks as more manageable for me. You can also save pages as jpegs and play around to make small card toppers and all sorts of different projects x

Angela said...

Your digital work is beautiful and inspiring :) thank u for sharing, wishing u a crafty week :)

lisa said...

Happy WOYWW! Gorgeous digi-scrap, and how exciting to be part of a collab!

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for your reply, Heather. Of course, I'd forgotten 8x8s - I've printed that size off to. It's Craft Artist I have too. I have used photos as card toppers - just never thought of using CA to play around with them - thanks for the tip. Elizabeth xx

RosC said...

Hi Heather,
Thanks for visiting me, and weather commiserations. The consistent heat is not my fave.
I really love the embossed and softly coloured papers you are creating. I'm not sure I understand the digi creation but it's really lovely.
Happy time without clocks.

Love your die cuts waiting to see what comes of those! Happy WOYWW. Karen 87 x

Samantha Elliott said...

Lovely digital layout there. I must confess I do like the toucheyfeeliness of an old fashioned layout. I also work on a puter all day so other than blogging I don't tend to use one in my spare time!
Thanks for your visit. Love your blog layout too!

okienurse said...

I am clueless when it comes to digital! I purchased a digital scrapbook program from Stampin UP! and I have trouble with that! Love your desk and the projects you are working on!

Christine said...

Love your digi space - I think I may have to make room for my laptop in my Playroom after all the WOYWW tours!
BTW my DH said 'you daft bat, it wasn't Lidl you got the lamp from, it was Machine Mart'. sorry about that, I know they are on the internet if you don't have a shop near you.
