So it's that time of the week again...when voices across the globe cry out "what, Wednesday?  Already?!" 

So, straight down to business and what is on my workdesk this Wednesday? 

This week I have been making luggage labels (as you do).  At my local scrap store they had some nice thick leather (they don't have it often) in blue and green and my mum has been asking me to make some luggage labels for her so this seemed perfect.
I used bostik leather glue (I think this is really expensive at £5 for a small tube which I used up just on this project)but its really strong and holds well.  I also cut some decorations with thinner leather using my bigz sizzix dies. I cut a slit in the back and threaded through some white card and clear plastic so that contact details can be added.

Also on my desk this week is my new purchase (an early anniversary pressie from hubby) which is  a photo printing kit where you can print from a negative onto fabric (such as a t shirt) and expose it in the sun.  If anyone has used this before I would love to hear from you!

My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week are 'Romantic Girl Stuns Hero', two, three...ahhh....unless its a stun gun, in which case it takes a whole different turn!

If you would like a legal snoop at desks across the globe then feel free to join us over at Julia's blog (there is a link over on the right).

Happy crafting

  9. Your mum will be thrilled with the luggage labels - gorgeous project. Thanks for sharing your workspace today. Hope you have a great day and a lovely crafting week to come. Hazel, WOYWW #45 x

  10. G'day there Kyla. Just dropping by for WOYWW. I haven't played for a few months but remembered today. I did sun printing today but not with photo paper. I have used solar paper before but didn't know you could buy a sun activated printable you use an ink jet or a laser copier for these?

    1. Inkjet so its easy to print at home (i hope!)

  11. Wow, these luggage labels are really neat! Never saw anything like it! How cool!

  12. Love the labels but the t-shirt printing looks too cool. Can't wait to see more on that. I think Fabri-tac is cheaper BTW, and it works on leather. Check Amazon - I think I got it there but it's been a while so not 100% sure.

    Happy WOYWW!

  13. Stun very of our time!! Love the luggage tags, what a great idea...trouble with the glue is that once you know it exists and works, you're kinda mis-trusting of any others....I think.

  14. Thanks for visiting me - I can assure you my desk won't stay that neat for long! Great luggage tags and I'm looking forward to seeing how the photo printing turns out.

  15. Hi Kyla, thanks for stopping by at mine, I am still trying to get round had my sister-in-law visiting and the time has just run away with me.
    The photo printing kit sounds interesting hope you will let us know how you get on with it.
    Happy crafting, Angela x

  16. Loving the tags, fab colours, makes seeing suitcase easier. Ooh you'll have fun with the printing kit. I bought fabric transfer paper & printed designs then ironed onto t-shirt. Yours sounds more fun though.Lol at the Guinness, last time I had it was when pregnant and needed an iron boost, you back in the day when Guinness actually had health benefits!! Take care lovely, thanks for popping by. Zo xx 50

  17. I love these luggage tags Kyla. That printing kit sounds like fun.

  18. The luggage tags are great, what wonderful idea, and the printing kit--that DOES sound like fun!!!
