Thank you cards are the most frequently requested cards at my classes, and the new A Whole Lot of Lovely hostess set from Stampin' Up! has a gorgeous thank you sentiment which is perfect as the focal point of a card. I used Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe (I've... Continue reading

While I've not gone as far as triple time stamping, I wanted the try a layered stamping technique to make a simple card with the Sheltering Tree stamp set from Stampin' Up! With my craft room all boxed up so that the room could be repainted, I managed to lose... Continue reading

This was a card we made at a recent class. I was quite proud of myself for pulling some Melon Mambo off the shelf and really making it bright and cheerful. It goes just as well with Crumb Cake as more muted shades. It was also really easy to decorate... Continue reading

This was going to be my swap at a recent team training weekend, but as I couldn't go in the end, I added it to my monthly class. Let's just say I think they were too excited about the mini Green and Black's chocolates on offer! As I think I've... Continue reading

The Curvy Keepsake Thinlits die from Stampin' Up! is a very, very quick and easy way to make a 3D gift for someone. All it needs is a couple of suitably sized chocolates to fit in it, and you have the perfect hostess or table gift for any occasion. I... Continue reading

It's taken me a while to ink up the gorgeous Sheltering Tree stamp set. There have been so many lovely cards made with this set and shared on blogs and Pinterest that I don't know if this is my own idea, someone else's, or a mixture of the two! A... Continue reading

If you are even just thinking about considering joining up as a demonstrator, I'd say go for it! I joined during Sale-a-Bration 5 years ago and I've never... Continue reading

I've been playing with my Bow Builder punch this week. I think I've managed to get more of them stuck to my fingers than to anything else. My husband has started hiding from me as I keep asking him to hold the bits while the glue sets... time to order... Continue reading

I have a confession to make.... my craft room is a mess! I don't think I should even call it a craft room as it's just become our dumping ground for anything that doesn't have a home. Anyway, the result of this is that I only have my most recent... Continue reading

The Lotus Blossom set was the first one we got to play with at the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-Bration tour event before Christmas. We all knew it was going to be popular. I think that's why I've left it so long to get my set good and inky! I've paired it... Continue reading

As soon as I saw the Best Day Ever Sale-a-Bration set in this year's offering from Stampin' Up! I knew it needed to be paired with the Scallop Tag Topper punch. And that wasn't just because of the sample on p3 of the SAB brochure - that uses the Angled... Continue reading

I needed a hostess gift that was suitable for the dreary days of January. Chocolate being definitely off the cards, I hoped that some scented candles would be better received. They also fitted a square box much more easily than my usual matchbox pattern, so a new pattern was called... Continue reading
It was one of those "now how on earth do I stick this down" moments, rather than planned!
I think I've messed up the colours a bit in my photo... it's actually Wisteria Wonder, with Coastal Cabana for the flowers and background bit!

I always mean to try out a punched double gatefold card like this one using Scentsational Season (from way back in 2012) whenever there is a symmetrical-enough motif. Festival of trees gave me a more than suitable punch and stamp combo to try my hand at this simple style of... Continue reading

This is another of my (hopefully) Wow! cards from my recent class. I really loved the scenes that so many of my fellow demonstrators were able to create with the photopolymer White Christmas set that I had to give it a go. Although the photopolymer made it easy to line... Continue reading
