WOYWW - What is on my workdesk?

I've never played along with WOYWW before but seeing as it's Wednesday well why not!

I indulged in a Big Shot recently, today I finally got it out of the box.  Think I'm getting old because the instructions could have been written in Russian!  The best thing to do was just to go for it, so I did!  It's actually really easy to use, I think I was expecting it to be more difficult.  This could be quite addictive :)

This is what I made first, it's using the Sizzix Embosslits Beautiful Wings Die, its not an original idea.  I've seen a few different versions of this but it was the first thing I wanted to recreate now I had the Big Shot myself.  I'm really chuffed.


  1. I think its wonderful! Its really pretty and I've not seen it done as a rainbow effect before. Glad you are enjoying your new toy.

  2. Welcome Nicola, you can kiss goodbye to your Wednesdays now I'm afraid!! I have a Cuttlebug and use it a lot, it's a great tool. Love that butterfly canvas too.
