The background is with the new woodgrain embossing folder and the superheros made from the Owl Punch.   See this idea on Pinterest and knew how it would be loved by my son.
Pleasant Poppies
Love this Pleasant Poppies large background stamp. I’ve stamped in black in Melon Mambo and embossed.  Just love it.

Little Notelets using Bright Blossoms

This little set is fabulous.  I didn’t give it a second look when I first saw it in the Summer Mini but after seeing what other people had done with it, I realised what a useful addition it would make to my stamp collect.

Here I have made some very simple notelets. perfect.

Some WOW’s from the Summer Mini Catalogue.

As my mojo has been away on holiday, I thought I’d show you some card samples made as swaps at a Stampin’ Up! training event.  Fellow demonstrators made these with stamp sets in the summer mini. I think you’ll agree with me they are fantastic. We have some very talented ladies in Scotland.


Both these are made from Bright Blossoms.


The Open Sea. Fabulous set for those difficult men’s cards.


One of my favourite sets. Up, Up and Away.



Thee two have used Bordering on Romance set. Plus you can see the new Bakers Thread, Ribbon and Edgelets.

Hope you have enjoyed them. The Summer mini is valid until the end of August.  If you still have seen a catalogue or would like to place an order. Please get in touch.

Basically you are using your 1 3/8” circle punch, Boho Punch. small heart and Small Oval and Itty Bitty circle punch.

Spring Mini and Blog Hop

Happy New Year!

Great news as Stampin' Up! have started 2012 with an extra brand new Spring Mini Catalogue.

This morning I'm partipating in a Blog Hop that will showcase some fabulous projects using new products from this little extra catalogue.

This blog hop has been organised by Alison in France. Thanks Alison.

You may of arrived from the very talented Kate

Here are my projects using some of my favourite products.

My first project is this little keyring. Do you like the cupcake. It is a fabulous new punch that is in the catalogue. There is also a matching stamp set. I have just punched cardstock for my cupcake and used my crimper to add some texture for the cupcake wrapper.

As you probably know, Stampin' Up! introducted fabric in October. Well I hadn't really sewn since I was a school, but I'm very proud of myself for making this bag yesterday. This fabric is called Spiced Cake and has matching papers , Designer Buttons and co-ordinating stamps. These buttons are MASSIVE . I've used one for my closure.

Next ...introducing Simply Adorned range. This is a range of chains, charms, baubles to personalise. My necklace has the largest charm on it. The charms are locket style with a hinge that lets you insert artwork or photos and everything is packaged in it's own gift box. Perfect for beautiful presents. My artwork is using a Sale-a-bration stamp set with gems and a small die cut butterfly. More Sale-a-Bration news coming up later as this year it starts on the 24th January and lasts until the end of March. The back (not shown here) has slices of the matching SAB papers.

Sorry my pictures are not fantastic, there is no light in this dreadful weather.

Hope you have enjoyed my projects and if you are interested in any of these products, please get in touch.

Next for more fabulousness your next stop is Tina
