From The Herd

Good morning all.
Here is another sneak peek of the new Stampin Up Spring Catalogue:
The bow is a new punch also in the Spring Catalogue.
How cute are they?!!
This was yet another stamp that I just had to have!

Father Christmas bought me some new NEW STAMPIN UP BLENDABILITIES so it was the perfect stamp to test them out.
They come in a pack of three - light, medium and dark-

Stampin' Blendabilities™ Markers Night of Navy Assortment     

There are 12 sets plus a pack of skin tones and 1 colour lifter.
Hope you have a fab day,

Baby, We've Grown

Good evening all.
Have you eaten too many mince pies and drunk too much bubbly?!!
I have but that is what you are supposed to do isn't it?!

Over at Less Is More the theme is 'Family' also they are saying goodbye to Jen who is such an inspirational crafter I know she will be missed. So in honour of Jen I have CASED THIS CARD:

As you can see I didn't copy it exactly as I think that is stealing and obviously it is not as good as Jen's.

Hopefully Jen will still post when she has more time as her talent needs to be shared.

So that's my card for today - thanks for visiting.

Love Is Kindness

Good evening all.
I hope that your Christmas preparations are going well. I still have loads to do as I haven't been feeling well today but never mind there are still 3 days to go.

One of the great things about being a Stampin Up demonstrator is that we get to view and order items from upcoming catalogues. When I saw the new 2015 Spring and Summer catalogue I just had to have this stamp:

 Side view of the decoupage:

I used my Stampin Up Markers to watercolour the tulips and I decoupaged the newspaper.

If you would like either the Spring and Summer catalogue or the Sale-a-Bration catalogue just send me an email HERE and I will pop one in the post for you. They are both full of loveliness - more sneak peeks to follow.

Now I'm off to watch the Apprentice - I wanted Roisin to win :(
Hope you have a lovely evening and thanks for visiting.

Stampin' Up Stazon Cleaner Really Works!

Good evening all.

Occasionally I will buy second hand rubber stamps if they are retired and I can't buy them new.
But when they arrive in the post and are stained  I use my Stampin Up Stazon Cleaner with my Stampin Scrub and 'Hey Presto' they are as good as new. Here's the proof-



 The other good thing is that it doesn't smell horrible like some other Stazon cleaners (although the instructions say to use in a well ventilated room).

For everyday use though I use my Stampin' Mist cleaner with my Stampin' Scrub and it keeps my stamps in lovely condition.

Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake Box Die 'Tea Light' Tutorial

Hello there!
My apologies for the lack of posts lately but I have been busy making things for several craft fares.

Finally my Stampin Up Curvy Keepsake Die arrived after it being on back order as it was out of stock - yay!!
 I thought that I would show you a picture tutorial of how to put it together:

Firstly cut out 2 die cuts of DSP or card stock (I used my big shot):

Next curve the edge with the rounded top (the handle) with a bone folder:
Here is my 'top tip' if you would like to punch a hole in it - place a post it punched hole where you would like the hole to be:
Then you can just punch it out knowing that it will be perfectly placed!:
Now put some double sided tape (sticky strip) on the bottom square:
Next place the second die cut on top:
As I used vellum I then added a punched out piece of card stock to make it more stable but you would not need this for something more heavy weight.
Now pinch the two handles together and then fold over one of the pointed sides to close it:
Next fold over the other pointed edge:
Voilà!! You now have a Tea Light candle holder (battery operated of course!):

The tag die comes with the set and there are three in total.
I have made lot's more of these but will show you those another time as I'm sure this post has quite enough photos!!

So I hope that my tutorial makes sense!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.
