New Papers

New Designer Series Papers = more excuses to make stuff!  Right?
Well, ok, who needs excuses….. just had to make some cute little boxes to show off some of the gorgeous new papers!
These boxes use both the Envelope Punch Board, and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.

This first one combines the Lullaby DSP with some Hello Honey coloured cardstock, some gold Baker’s twine and a tag made from the Occasions stamp set (part of the Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit), and  the Artisan Label punch.
Here is the box when it is open….

And a close up of the tag.

And a second box, a little bigger, but made in the same way, this time using the absolutely stunning papers from the Gold Soiree DSP.  Wouldn’t this make a gorgeous box for a wedding gift?

This box has a layer of Vellum around it, and is tied with some of the gorgeous Gold Ribbon.
Having fun! Hope you are too. 🙂

Happy Stamping!

Envelope Punch Board

I couldn’t wait to play with my Christmas present, the new Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board!


I have used the punch board to make not only envelope, but also the little slider box.


I have used some gorgeous new papers which will be available during Sale-a-Bration, starting on January 28.  Aren’t the colours just gorgeous?  Lots of other goodies available free during Sale-a-Bration, so make sure you contact me to find out how you can make the most of it.


The papers are called Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Papers (#133521 available Jan 28 2014).  As well I have used the Chevron Embossing Folder, Hearts a Flutter Framelits (#130159), Label Love stamp set (#130622 Clear, #130619 Wood), the Artisan Label Punch (#130920) and of course the Envelope Punch Board (#133774).   You can order any, or all of these products by visiting my Stampin’ Up! website here.

Happy Stamping!

Sent With Love

Just wanted to share a gorgeous little box which I made using the Sent With Love papers.

I just love this bundle…. the papers are bright and cheery, the stamp set is very versatile and of course if you bundle it with the Baker’s Twine you get 20% off, but it’s only available until the 15th June.
I love it so much that I think I will be making some note cards to go in this box, so stay tuned.
And did you know that you can also get them in Digital format through My Digital Studio?  That’s right, in fact this box is actually an MDS template which is also available.
They can all be ordered through my Stampin’ Up! site, or send me an email and let me know what it is you want to order or any questions you might have.

Happy Stamping!

Fundraising

Recently, I was asked to donate some boxed sets of cards for a charity fundraising event. I am very excited to be asked to do this, and wanted to make the box something a bit special, and I found this design on Tanya Bell‘s blog, and thought it was perfect. Thanks for sharing the tutorial for this one Tanya.

The white flap of the box opens up so that you can put the cards and envelopes inside.
For this particular box I have used Primrose Petals as the main colour, along with the Apothecary Art Stamp Set, the Framelits Labels Collection and some retired bits and pieces.  I have made two of these boxes and each has 6 of my hand crafted cards in it.
As well as that, I have also put together 250 advertising packs, each with information about my stamping business and each also has a gift tag inside.  I will show you the advertising packs in another post, but let’s just say it has definitely been a big project!
Hope you are having a crafty day.  Happy Stamping!
