Occasions Catalogue Stamp N Hop Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the last Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop of this year!
Hope you've enjoyed hopping along with me and the other Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators this last year.

Our theme this month is the new Occasions Catalogue, I was lucky enough to go to Onstage in Birmingham so was able to pre-order a couple of the new stamp sets.

I'm making a card for a man using the new Geared Up Garage stamp set.  This is a great suite, includes paper, ribbon, metal elements as well as the stamp and framelits.

Base card Tranquil Tide  27cm x 12.7cm
DSP                                 6.8cm x 12.3cm
Very Vanilla                    6.8cm x 12.3cm

I've made a reverse gate fold card, first time I made this fold and I'm liking it!

Please feel free to watch my how to video below

Butterfly Gala Square Birthday Card

I recently made this card for a class, it's a really pretty card using the fantastic new Butterfly Gala stamp set and punch.  This is available to buy from the 3rd January.

How pretty is this stamp set, you have a choice of four different style butterflies and you can buy the punch which makes it a quick and easy option.

I coloured my butterflies in with the some Stampin' Blends but there is a stamp for quick stamping colour or no need to colour at all, butterfly is still beautiful if you stamp outline in your favourite colour.

I made this a 4 x 4" card, very simple to make, please watch my You Tube video below

New Spring/Summer catalogue I will be shipping out soon, would you like one? Please e-mail or contact me and I will pop one in the post to you.  

Also Sale-A-Bration starts on 3rd January, lasts until 31st March, every £45 order placed receives a free item (of your choice) from the Sale-A-Bration leaflet.  If you spend £90 you get to choose 2 items if you spend £135 you choose 3 items, and so it goes on.  On top of this, as always, you will receive a small gift from me if you spend over £35 (not including P&P) great offer!

Christmas Kre8tors December Blog Hop

Welcome to the last Kre8tors blog hop of the year!  What a creative year it's been!  You maybe hopping from Melissa's project (thanks Melissa) or you maybe starting here, very happy to see you all.

Our theme this month is Christmas, please hop along with us all.  We are all Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator's from around the world and we aim to inspire you to create.

As we are getting close to the big day I've made a quick and easy card and small gift box.

There's no stamping on the card, just cutting and sticking.

I've added the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels (which are in the sale at the moment) and the Frosted and Clear Epoxy Droplets.  The bow is the Linen Thread.

Tiny bit of stamping on the tag for the mini box.  I then went a little bit crazy with my stamping and stamped a square of white tissue paper to go into my Clear Tiny Treat Box.  I used Peaceful Noel stamp set, Garden Green and Real Red ink.


The tissue paper takes to stamping really well and is quite quick to do.  It looks expensive and festive.  The box is very quick to put together, I've cut a piece of the Farmhouse Festive DSP to fit the top of the box, then I've die cut some Whisper White card stock with the dies from Stitched Labels Framelits.  The Festive Farmhouse Elements have some cute Christmas Trees which look great on the top of my box.

I've made a couple of short videos. 

Please don't forget to hop along to Tricia Butts Awesome Christmas project.
