The theme of this month’s blog hop is ‘Summer Events’, and I really wanted to use some of our amazing new Designer Series Paper to make a mini-album, ready for all of those Summer holiday photographs. Only problem is, we aren’t having a Summer holiday this year!! Lol. This will be ready and waiting for me when we do go away next though, and will hopefully inspire you to make an album of your own with your favourite papers.

How to make a quick and easy notecard set…

This quick and easy notecard set is one of several projects that have been lying around my craft room waiting for me to finish. I had a tidy up of my shelving this week when I cam across it again and thought ‘today is the day!’ The box that holds the cards is one of the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes, so versatile and they make crafting a breeze, as all we need to do is decorate them. And they are very sturdy too, so make a perfect gift. The cards are also quick and easy, as these are the Notecards […]

Make a Mini Stationery Set…

I had a fabulous time on my Facebook Live this morning demonstrating how to make a Mini Stationery Set, and I wanted to share the instructions here with you today. This is such a lovely little project, perfect for giving as a gift or for selling at craft fairs, which are starting up again now! These sets contain a notepad, a set of sticky notes and a pen, all presented in one of the Stampin’ Up! acetate card boxes. I used to sell these sets for about £5 in the craft fairs, but it depends on what your materials cost […]

I am so excited to share my handmade home decor entry for this wonderful blog hop by the Tech 4 Stampers group.

How to make a handmade card and gift tag set…

I just wanted to hope on fairly quickly today to share with you how to make a handmade card and gift tag set. This project looks so elegant and stylish I think, which seems perfectly fitting because I have used the new (available May 4th) suite of products called Simply Elegant. With its neutral tones and metallic highlights the Designer Series Paper lends itself really well to 3D projects just like this one. I have actually recorded an accompanying video to show you how to make this project, because it is much easier to see how things are done sometimes! […]

These baskets have been around for a while, in fact I think I made them last year too, but it’s always good to revisit forgotten projects! I sized these baskets so that you could […]

How to make a 3D triangular box…

I used many a paper trimmer before I found Stampin’ Up! and I must say I get the best cuts with this one, so I wanted to show you today how to make a 3D triangular box using the Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer. I first saw this type of box at the Stampin’ Up! On Stage event in Dortmund in 2019 and as soon as I held it I loved it, it is just so strong and tactile thanks to the triangular shape . First off, cut the Blackberry Bliss cardstock to 10cm x 21cm and score it on the […]
