Himself was dubious. "I am sure this falls into the category of Please Do Not Try This At Home', he said, with a distinct undertone of there-will-be-tears-before-bedtime, and a dollop of don't-blame-me-when-this-goes-wrong.
"I've read about it," I said. "Lots of people do it", with rather more confidence than I was feeling and hoping I wasn't going to be challenged by 'the usual reply of "Name one". "It'll be fine. You can watch if you like", I added encouragingly.
"No thanks", he replied, heading for the door. "Watching fabric mangle the innards of a printer is not high on my list of favourite things to do".
But it was fine. Of course, it may not be washable but I'm sure I can use it for scrapping. Designing scrapbook papers was very enjoyable in the first instance, but who'd have guessed that printing your own fabric on an ordinary ink-jet printer would be so easy, or such fun? Here it is, on my desk ...
... and I'll take some photos for you on how to do it, in case you would like to try this at home!
And as promised on Monday, here are the zipped scrapbooking papers for those of you who would like them:
Some of you have emailed about the template I used in the layout on Monday this week - I hope to have that for you on Friday, with a few extras as well.
So please do hop over to the inspirational Julia of The Stamping Ground, to see what else is lurking on wonderful workdesks around the world! Oh, and Himself was warmly impressed. Eating hats is not quite on the menu, but a cup of tea and a handful of liquorice allsorts said it all. :)
