Another template I found on the Stampin' Up! web site. These crackers are small but so cute. I think I will make some more and hang them on the tree.
I have used brocade blue cardstock for the cracker and the beautiful papers Bella Bleu around the middle, edged by the eyelet border punch. A fabric flower and crystal brad from the Pretties kit embellish the belly band. Whisper White Taffeta ribbon to tie the ends. Very pretty.

I found a card template on the Stampin' Up! web site for this snow globe. I printed the template onto Bashful Blue cardstock and cut it out. I cut out a panel on the front and attached a panel of stamped Window Sheet. I stamped the snowflakes from Wonderous Gift in white Stazon and sprinked on Dazzling Diamonds whilst the ink was still wet. Inside I stamped images from Holly Jolly. and covered the base in Close to Cocoa cardstock. I added a bow of Taffeta Whisper White ribbon around the front. A cute little card.

Welcome to everyone who is on the blog cruise. Hope you are enjoying your voyage. Thanks to Claire .
I have two projects to show you today. One is a miniature box in a bag in christmas characters. Ideal for little treats for the children. Santa was made in Real Red and Basic Black. His buckle is a ribbon slide from the hodgepodge set. The snowman is made in Whisper White with a hat and coals in Basic Black, Only Orange nose.
Next is my box of christmas tags. This box was demoed at Convention and I loved it. Pam made it with tags using Flight of a butterfly. I decided to make the box with christmas tags. I used the stamps from Spotlight on Christmas as this is perfect for the SU punches. I also sneaked in the Christmas stamp from the hostess set Punches Three.
Lastly to win a prize of some fab Stampin' Up! goodies, leave a comment and one lucky winner will be pick on Sunday night.
Ok, ready for your next stop. Click on the icon below to visit your next blog. Hope you have enjoyed your stay.

Next year, convention is going to be London. So I'm hoping my team will beable to make it. I took part in some general swaps with not only other UK demonstrators but German and French demos too. Wow, what can I say. There is a lot of talent out there ladies. Thank you all so much. I also took part in an organised Card Candy swap on Inlovewithstamping.com forum. I'll post some pictures up later, but although most people did say they struggled (myself included), and not everyone completed theirs I think we were all blown away with the results.
On the Friday night, there was a big Gala Dinner after which Shelli Gardner (CEO and founder of Stampin' Up!) presented prizes. Well done to all the girls who walked the stage. Fantastic achievements.

I must confess this is a lift from a card I saw on Splitcoaststamper. I can't remember who created the original but she was a SU demonstrator in Australia. I thought it was fantastic.
This card uses Old Olive as the base with Ski Slope DSP and the wonderfull Winter Post stamps.
Hope you like it as much as me.

I have a Stampers 10 club starting in October. Are you interested? Would you like to receive some FREE Stampin' Up! products???
By commiting to spend just £15 (plus p&p) per month for 10 months, you can gradually build up your Stampin' Up! supplies. Each of my 10 club members will take it in turns to become the 'virtual hostess' for a month and benefit from receiving a free level 1 hostess set and £15 worth of freebies (of their choice) from the catalogue!
You could also when you are that month's hostess, add extra orders in by either a home workshop or from friends. This gives you the opportunity to earn maybe a higher level hostess set and more £££worth of freebies. Does this sound great?
And don't forget!!! The new catalogue is due out in October! All club members will receive a free copy from me as soon as I receive them :o)
The product will be sent to me and I will distribute it.
Those local to me will be invited to a special club night once a month where you can participate in a free project and sort out your order for the following month and collect your latest order.
For more information email me at email@example.com

I made this birthday card for my step-mother. She loved it, so I thought I'd share..
This card uses the Tea Party Designer Series Papers, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery cardstock. Pretty in Pink, Almost Amethyst ink (and Basic Grey for stamping the verse). A gem brad (round fire). Stamp sets used were Cheer and Wishes for the verse and flowers from the Petal Pizzazz. Hope you like it too.
Here are the three cards we made at my Mini Christmas Stamp a Stack.
This card uses Night of Navy, Brocade Blue and Whisper White cardstock. Night of Navy and Brocade Blue ink and Brocade Blue 5/8" grosgrain ribbon.
The fir tree is from Lovely as a Tree and the christmas message is from the Level 1 Hostess set Best Yet.
We also used the Large oval punch and scallop punch. The three trees in the foreground also had the Heat and Stick treatment and covered in Dazzling Diamonds glitter.
Again staying with the same colour theme. Bashful blue Designer Paper and the wonderfull stag and ornate snowflakes from Winter Post.
Also the Silent Night set. This lovely big image was also given the Heat and Stick and Dazzling Diamonds treatment.
Wednesday, 12 August 2009
