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 […]

How to scrapbook a single photo…

I wanted to make a gift for my Sister-in-Law recently, and decided to give her a piece of home-decor, so I set about thinking of how to scrapbook a single photo. When I scrapbook, I normally try to fit about three photos on a page, but here I wanted to showcase a beautiful photograph of her three girls, taken while they were out for a walk last year. It is so lovely to see them all smiling and laughing together. I started by choosing a colour scheme, and I knew I wanted greens to tie in the photograph and a […]

Make something a little different…

I seem to have been making a lot of cards recently, and I wanted to make something a little different, so out came my trusty greyboard and some GORGEOUS Snowflake Splendor DSP. This project was started on a recent Facebook Live, but here it is in all it’s glory, I hope you like it. I must admit these papers and colours are my absolute favourite from the Aug-Dec Mini catalogue this year, and the Balmy Blue glimmer paper, well I have just ordered another two packs of that! If you would like to see how I made the hanging frame, […]

Exploding Candle Box…

I absolutely love making these – the gorgeous exploding candle box. It is a design that I came up with a few years ago when I was making things to sell at the local craft fairs. I sourced some fairly inexpensive candles and really jazzed them up – they proved very popular so I thought I would share the design with you here today. My candles are approximately 2 3/4″ diameter at the widest part and 3 1/4″ high. I wanted to use the Forever Greenery Designer series paper becuase I find green a very calming colour, just perfect for […]
