It is time for Trimming the Town with a Crafty Blog Hops


Hello and welcome to my latest blog post,

Today I will be sharing the two projects that I made fir the Crafty Blogs Blog Hop using the Trimming the Town Suite by Stampin’ Up!  

In this suite there is the Coming Home stamp set with co-ordinating dies, Designer Series Patterned Paper, embellishments and ribbons.  

      

I knew that this would be one of those suites that has so many options but for now I have made a Terry’s Chocolate Orange gift box and a Christmas greetings card.  Every year in my Cards and 3D class we would always make a Terry's Chocolate Orange gift box, then I present them with the chocolate to put in the box, but this year I changed how I made it as I wanted a hinged lid.

 

One of the sheets of Designer Series Paper sheets had houses and trees on which can be cut out with the co-ordinating dies or fussy cut with scissors.  Most of my past posts will have some fussy cutting on them as I just love doing it, as I find it so therapeutic.  I even used the partial houses and trees to give a 3D effect by adding mini dimensionals after I cut them out.

             

I wanted to use Stampin’ Up! window sheets for the card front as I could add layers and depth to the card and also incorporate the insert into the card image. 

loved how the Terry Chocolate gift box came together, I loved the gorgeous colours, the patterns on the paper and how I was able to wrap around the bottom of the gift box.

Please see below the supply list of the products used in these projects:

Demonstrator Support Programme Blog Hop #1

    

Hello, G’day, Hallo, Bonjour, こんにちは and welcome

Thank you for popping in as you go around the Demonstrator Support Program Blog Hop, you will get to see lots of Independent Demonstrators from around the world showing you what they have been crafting.

Today I will be sharing this card that I made several of which I will have ready to send out as and when needed.  I am not sure if I am the only one, but there is something that fascinates me about feathers, so when I chose to use Stampin’ Up!’s Tasteful Touches stamp set from the Annual CatalogueI knew that the feather had to be embossed using Gold Embossing Powder.   


Oh yes, my cards did involve some fussy cutting but you either love it or hate it, personally I LOVE IT!  I have been known to even fussy cut some stamped images even though I have the matching dies too, I just find it so relaxing.






I hope you have enjoyed visiting and have fun on the rest of your hop.  Hope to see you again soon.

Please see below the supply list of the products used in these projects:

Oh what am I working on.....

Hello and welcome to my blog, 

I just wanted to show you what I am working on at the moment, with so much new craft products about due to Stampin’ Up! having two current catalogues it made my decision quite hard.  However, it didn’t take me too long for me to make my mind up as I have wanted to play with this suite for quite a while – Stampin’ Up!’s Forever Greenery.  

Every month I offer a scrapbooking kit (£15 collected, £20 posted) to my regular customers and these are my two pages using items from the kit, plus I have added the stamp set and dies into my work.

Before I started creating I decided that I would like to stamp and die-cut loads of different elements using the stamps and dies so I had them all ready to play with.

Here you will see a mixture of Forever Gold Laser-cut Speciality Paper which I literally just popped out to add with all of the stamped and die-cut images which I created stamping onto Whisper White card and by using Just Jade, Shaded Spruce, Garden Green, Pear Pizzazz, Pretty Peacock and Soft Sea Foam ink colours.

 

I truly loved using the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper as they went so well with the photographs that I wanted to scrap, a recent family day out in Stamford, Norfolk.  I had so many photos to use and it was my intention to get as many on as I could.

      

These pictures are close-ups of two sections of the page so you get a better chance to see the detail.  I was really happy with how these pages turned out and it is my intention to carry on crafting with this suite.  I plan to make a mini album with more photographs in of this memorable day out with my daughters and granddaughters.

Oh my favourite Designer Series Paper Stamp 'n Hop Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to my latest blog post for the Stamp n’ Hop blog hop where we are showcasing our favourite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers, so thank you stopping by from Kim.

For this blog hop I choose Stampin’ Up!’s Snowflake Splendour Designer Series Paper which is available in the August to December 2020 mini catalogue.

With these papers I decided I would make a start on my Christmas card stash as it will be here before we know it.  It was really easy to use these papers as the colours work so well together.

    

    

These cards were created using the Snowflake Wishes stamp set, Balmy Blue Glimmer Paper, So Many Snowflakes and Stitched Shapes dies.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you continue with the hopping as you visit Vicki’s blog post.

Most Wonderful Time - Stampin' for Christmas Blog Hop



“It's the most wonderful time of the year....” bet you were singing that!

Another month nearer to Christmas and hello and welcome to the Stampin’ for Christmas Blog Hop.  You may have joined me from Zoe's post or started your hopping session here.  

It was quite easy for me to choose what I wanted to use for this blog hop, I fell in love with Stampin’ Up!’s ‘Most Wonderful Time Product Medley’ when it was launched in last year’s seasonal catalogue.  Not only does it have lovely colours, but it offers great value for the money at only £65 (refill is £24) for all of this…


With this product medley I created so many different things, I nearly used all of the products included in the kit so I had to purchase the refill kit too.

Here are some of the products that I created...

       

 

I love making Gift tags too, they are great for using up the leftovers so nothing is wasted.

Thank you so much for stopping by, now time to hop on over to the lovely Jo.

Please see below the supply list of the products used in these projects:

Howlin' Halloween Crafty Blog Hop



Time for another
Crafty Blog Hop with the theme being Halloween.  So, thank you for stopping by and looking at my blog post.

I truly love Halloween; however, I am envious of how Halloween is celebrated in the USA as they really go to town, hardly any effort apart from the occasional “Trick or Treat” here in the UK.

I knew I wanted to use Autumnal colours and it had to be Mossy Meadow, Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Cinnamon Cider!  They just went together so well.  For the wreath I used four pieces of each A4 card colour (49 pieces per sheet).

Question… would I do it again???

Answer… oh yes!!! I loved watching it come together, please do not get me wrong, I was over the moon when it was finished and it looked even better than I imagined.

Thank you so much for reading my post, hope you enjoy hopping around and seeing what other global Stampin’ Up! demonstrators have been creating.
