It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas - well at least at Stampin' Up

The new Stampin' Up Christmas Catalogue has been released and I have just received my first order.
There are so many beautiful things it was hard to control myself.
Yesterday afternoon I went to my friend Chloe's house and we had some fun creating with the Santa's Sleigh Bundle. Another demonstrator Kathy Wayson had posted a photo of the stamp set using a double Z fold card which looked great and it sparked the same idea for Chloe and I to do the same thing but with a night sky. I had spent quite a bit of time preparing my background which I CASEd from Anna Smith at Scrapping Stampin and Stuff and the Z fold strip to match and getting very inky fingers in the process. Chloe then had the absolutely brilliant idea of using window sheets for the Z fold. So here is the finished product. It will be a very special card for someone this Christmas.

Send me a message or an email if you would like a copy of the new catalogue, so you can get started early this year.You can order from the 1st of September.

and here is a link to see Chloe's beautiful card on her blog Chlo's Craft Closet.

Look out for many more Christmas cards over the next few months.

Enjoy your weekend. x

Sweet 16 matching card and gift boxes

As promised here is my second bag in box project. My daughter and I made these on Friday afternoon for a 16th birthday. Tayla made this lovely birthday card and that set the theme for the pillow box and gift bag.
The bicycle was cut on my KNK Maxx electronic cutter. The DSP is Typeset. The sentiments is from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and the banner was punch from the triple banner punch. 

The rear butterfly is from the new Bold Butterfly framelits stamped with a sentiment from the Watercolor Wishes Stamp Set. It is available as a bundle. The front butterfly is from the Butterfly thinnest which is also available in a bundle with the Butterfly Basics stamp set. I love them both, but most especially the dies. I have included the product links below.
See yesterdays post for the you tub link instructions for the bag. 
The pillow box was cut with my KNK Maxx electronic cutter. The surprise stamp is from the Amazing Birthday stamp set, which is also available as a bundle with the banner frailest. I included the link below.

It's been a busy crafting week.
I have been using a some retired cardstock and making gifts for friends and family.

I love the bag in a box, here is a link to  Luvin Stampin, Box in a Bag.
 I used the measurements from here, but made a few design changes.
There a loads of other you tube videos on the bags, so have a look and choose one you like. 
I filled the bag with 6 cards. This is a lovely gift idea that you can make for your friends and family.

Add a comment if you would like any more details about this project.

One sheet wonder technique. Randomly stamp a single image all over your card stock and you have created your own DSP, that perfectly coordinates with your planned project. 

This card used the new Happy Birthday Everyone Hostess Stamp Set.

Lego Card

Hi Girls,
It was my Nephew's birthday this week and we gave him some Lego, so it was a no brainer that I would need a Lego card to go with his gift. I used a hole punch for the circles and double layered them added some white gel pen to make them 'pop'

Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone,
I hope you have all had a little time to craft.

If you're like me, you spend plenty of time on Pinterest looking for inspiration and CASEing (Copy and Share Everything), as there are so many beautiful cards out there, but there is nothing like that feeling of accomplishment when you actually create something of your own.

This week I participated in my very first sketch challenge, compliments of my lovely upline Chloe Evans at chloscraftcloset.

Here is the challenge sketch....

And here is my card.....
Products used: Butterfly basics stamp set, Sahara Sand ink, and multiple embossing folders (the small hearts one is retired).  White ribbon coloured with my sahara ink reindeer to match.

 I loved the inchies concept and saw a design on Pinterest which inspired my second card below.
Products used: Butterfly Basics stamp set, Early expresso ink. The flowers were paper pieced with some retired DSP and dazzling diamonds and a rhinestone added. The sentiment  is from the Petite Pairs stamp set, but I used my stamp positioner to have a single line sentiment instead of multi lines.

All current products used a linked below. Just click on the link and you will be taken to my shop. If you have any questions please drop me an email or give me a call. I have used the Butterfly Basics stamp set in both my cards, and it is one of my favourites, the stamp set is also available as a bundle (save 15%) with the matching dies.
