Gingers DT Piece

Over at GingerSnaps Creations the monthly theme is "work" with this week's new supply challenge asking us to work with OFFICE SUPPLIES.  My piece for the design team has mostly been provided by the office I work in; which is a Chartered Surveyors and Commercial Property Consultancy.


Its very exciting (tongue in cheek).  In the "old days" we used ledger paper instead of SAGE and instead of USB sticks we used CDs (for large reports and photographic schedules).  My lovely boss still prefers the CDs if I was honest - so I have altered a CD wallet and the two CDs inside it!  I have used ledger paper, paper clips and staples too.

I have used a variety of stamps including TJ Designs, Elusive Images, Hero Arts and Paperartsy.  Inks used are Walnut DI and Timber Brown Stazon.

Oh yes and a little Graphic 45 paper has snuck its way into my project.  The paper flowers from Prima have been inked and inked again as has the ribbon - which was originally a ghastly yellow.

My girls (from TJ Designs) have been triple embossed and then cracked. 

Wander over to the GingerSnaps Creations blog - you have a whole month to play along and there are some fabulous examples from my fellow DT members.  Would love to receive your comments - I am away in my caravan and I have scheduled this post so would love to read your comments when I return.  Suzanne Xx

Brilliant work, and it all ties in so well. Just how bad was the ribbon?

Wow Suzanne, what a stunning creation. Love the colours and all the details.
Weird too as I'm a book-keeper and mostly do the book work by hand as my major client doesn't like technology - good old manual cash books to complete.
Hope you're enjoying your break.

I love your project, Suzanne - what a great use for CD's and envelopes, and I especially like that you altered the CD's as well - a fun surprise when you pull it out of the envelope!
