I'm moving

This will be my last blog post here as I have moved to an official Stampin' Up! Website. Thank you for browsing and following this site.

I am updating the new site on a regular basis so I hope you will continue to check in there for project ideas, news, promotions, and online shopping.

Off the page....

Papercraft goes airborn....Stampin' Up! images and punches are fantastic for all kinds of papercraft projects, but they are also perfect for cake decorating!

This is a cake I made recently for my daughter's birthday - butterfly theme.

I used two co-ordinating butterfly punches - one fron the current main catalogue and the cute little one from the new seasonal catalogue. They nest inside each other beautifully and are both designed to fit with the images in the 'Papillon Potpourri' Stamp Set.

Favour Boxes

I recently bought a whole lot of mini Take-Away containers from my local wholesaler and decided to use some of them for the party favour boxes below.

I used my Simply Scored tool to make the rosettes and the gorgeous butterfly punch from the main catalogue, layered onto another butterfly that was embossed and die cut using my Big Shot. All finished off with a Rhinestone Jewel and co-ordinating ribbon.
Easy As :)

Happy New Year

Well, now my Christmas blitz of blog posts is over my blog has been quiet for a while.... about time for another post I think. The next couple of pictures are Christmas ideas, but perhaps you will find them inspiring for next year.

I made my own wraping paper this year using the brown packing paper that Stampin' Up! use in the boxes they send me. The version above is using the new Evergreen stamp Set and in the parcels below I used 'Snowflake Soiree'. Both sets are from the current Seasonal Catalogue, which will end on Jan 31st so get your orders in ASAP for these items.

I also made gift boxes this year, decorated with Shimmer Paper and my Snowflake die. I think they look super cute with the Scalloped Tulle ribbon fron the seasonal catalogue.
Lastly, I made raindeer biscuits for the kids and used my Stampin' Up! suplies to make little tags.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

This advent calander took a while to make using my candy wrapper die, but I think it was worth it - it has given much pleasure to my kids this year and I think it will be used for many years to come!!!

Wishing your all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Peaceful New Year.
I hope to see you all in 2013...

Day 12

Truly quick cards!
I used the Gift Labels from the Holiday Mini Catalogue to make some fab quick christmas cards - perfect when you're short on time but still want to send handmade cards.
I just added greetings and a bit of glitter to the labels and they make great card fronts.
Colours are Gumball Green and Cherry Cobber.
