Found this template on the internet and thought I’d have a go. I’ve also used the Stampin’ Up! Sizzix die Blossom Party with In Color  cardstock and brads. Patterned paper is FREE SAB paper.


Really enjoyed making this. Hope you like it.

Sale-a-Bration Papers

I’ve seen in blogland, where people have made a picture with either Flowers, Hearts or Butterflies using the beautiful SAB2012 paper. This set of papers consists of 12 double-sided sheets of 6 designs.

Here’s my attempt.


If you’d like to get your hands on these papers for FREE,  just place with me a £45 order and you too can enjoy these papers. I must admit I’m stocking up on them as they are only available whilst SAB is on and I LOVE them!

Angry Bird’s Punch Art..

Now for something a little different from me. Punch Art. Now I got the instructions for my Angry Bird’s from an American Demo’ blog, which for now has completely gone from my mind, but when I remember it I’ll add a link for you all.

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


The birthday sentiment is from the Hostess Set Happiest Birthday Wishes.

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
