I die cut one of the tags from the Merry Tags Framelit and two in Very Vanilla and stamped the To and From on one and backed the other with the second die cut

Easel Box using Stampin' Up! Wonderful Year

Sneak Peek into the Autumn Winter Catalogue

A lovely stamp set called Frosted Medallions, I made a Drawer Easel Box and added a 2017 Calendar

This makes the perfect desk calendar

I used the This Christmas Designer Series Paper to decorate the box

I used Versa Mark and embossed with Stampin' Up! Gold Embossing Powder on a piece of Cherry Cobbler Card

I added a small pencil and some note paper 

I thought the words were perfect for a yearly calendar

Thanks for looking

This Stamp Set will be available to order starting 1st September 2016

Until next time...........

Love and Affection

Love and Affection - Stampin' Up! 

I just love this Love and Affection Stamp Set and I forgot I'd bought it!! I know you might be thinking how could I forget? well I did buy a few stamps and they went on the shelf and this one went into hiding.

It was only when I came across the matching designer series paper - Affectionately Yours that I remembered it!

I stamped the flower and leaves on Crumb Cake card and cut them out

I wondered if I should add some jewels or sequins but decided against it, I can always add them if I change my mind.....

Thanks for looking
Until next time ...... enjoy your day!

Cable Knit Dynamic Card Sneak Peek

Autumn/Winter Sneak Peek

Well what can I say ...... my pre-order from Stampin' Up! Autumn/Winter Catalogue arrived on Friday and I have spent a lovely weekend making some projects and cards

Today I am sharing a couple of the cards I made inspired by this card I received some years ago from my sister in law - Karenna, I had to keep it! I thought it was so cute and knew one day it would give me inspiration to make a card

Here is one of the cards, made this one second and realised I had made a really big boo boo!!!!

I thought the sentiment said Hugs and Kisses - ha ha, I think I need glasses, Oh well I can always create another sentiment and add it over the top eh?

I used a brand new Texture Embossing Folder well it's called Cable Knit Dynamic but it's so 3d and I thought it was perfect for my knitting!

this is the first one I made still with Hogs and Kisses!!! doh! I will add a different sentiment though as I think this is stupid, well I feel stupid for doing i†!

I think I like this one best 

I think you can see the 3d effect more in the next photo

the folder will be available from 1st September and the item number is 143537 if you want to add it to your wish list

Thanks for looking

Until next time .......

Origami box in a box

Origami box in a box

I saw this box on a fellow  Stampin' Up! Demonstrator blog and just had to create one

I made mine from Flirty Flamingo paper from the In Colour Designer Stack and added a Delicate White Doily to the top to sit my Baby Bear on

This is the inside and it's the perfect size to add a box of Glue Dots to give as a gift 

Thanks for looking

Until next time .........

Irresistible Floral Card from a Sketch

On Tuesday 2nd August I was able to pre-order from the upcoming Autumn/Winter catalogue just one of the perks of being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator

I can't wait for my new supplies to arrive and you are going to love this catalogue!

Stampin' Up! have, again, excelled with all the lovely products

Anyway, to stop me thinking about getting the new supplies and to take my mind off it

I did a Google search and found this sketch and thought I would make a card based on this

This is what I came up with

I started off with a Smoky Slate card base and then using one of the new Sponge Brayers and Watermelon Wonder Ink starting slowly and colouring in the background with a piece of the Irresistible Floral Card

I then stamped flowers from the Falling Flowers Stamp Set, matches perfectly and that's what I love about Stampin' Up! and coordinating products

I added the sentiment and used a small one from Love You Lots Hostess Stamp Set

Just love the Smoky Slate Stitched Ribbon tied in a bow just like the sketch

Thanks for looking

Until next time .............
