Oh my goodness how beautiful is this Paper!! I always love the Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up! but this one is just stunning isn’t it?

Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin kit…

As is so often the case I am a little late to the party here, but I can safely say that I am LOVING working with the Joy to the World Paper Pumpkin kit.

I happened to have the kit on my desk when I stumbled across this weeks Global Design Project challenge, #GDP268. The link to the page is at the bottom of this post, […]

How to create multicoloured stamped images…

I hadn’t realised until today that this week it is Thanksgiving in America, on Thursday 26th November. It is a time to step back and give thanks, and even though we don’t celebrate it over here in the UK, that doesn’t mean that we can’t also take a little time to reflect on what we have, and to be thankful for those things. I am most thankful for the friendship, creativity and community that Stampin’ Up! has offered me and continues to offer me, I honestly don’t know where I would be without it, without all of you. You are […]
