Suspended Book Fold Card – Creativity Abounds Blog Hop August ’23…

Our theme for this month’s Creativity Abounds Blog Hop is ‘Fancy Folds’ and I have got one for you that I have never seen before, a suspended Book Fold Card.

Paper Florist Dies from Stampin’ Up!…

I think I am in love with the new Paper Florist Dies from Stampin’ Up! and just love how all of the different elements and flowers can be used individually or combined to make small or gigantic flowers! I have opted for the latter on this easel card, making the one big flower a real focus point. To see these dies on the Stampin’ Up! website, please visit by using the button below. I have used four colours for this card, the new Lemon Lolly and Bubble Bath, the returning Lemon Lime Twist and the continuing Balmy Blue. I think […]

Handmade Wedding Invitations…

I just love the new Cottage Rose stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and I wanted to make a very special type of project with it today – handmade wedding invitations. When you think weddings, you think special, don’t you, and so I knew this design needed to have the wow factor, but it also needed to be relatively quick to make because you could easily be making a few! I hope you like this project as much as I do, and even if you aren’t making your own handmade wedding invitations this design could easily be turned into a special […]

Happy Birthday to You…

I was so loving colouring with the Stampin’ Blend alcohol markers that I coloured in several of these gorgeous cake images from the Happy Birthday to You stamp set. If you like the look of this stamp set then read to the end to find out how you can win one of these for yourself. I have paired it here with the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper. This has some lovely floral patterns and I have chosen one with light pastel shades. I coloured the image in with Mint Macaron, So Saffron, Crumb Cake and Petal Pink Blends, before cutting […]

A Stand Up Fold Out Card…

Well, I really struggled to name this card design as it isn’t one I have come across before. I was just sat pondering fancy fold cards one day and this popped into my head as a great design for a special card, and it shows off so much of our beautiful Designer Series Paper that I couldn’t resist making this design using both the Honey Bee Bundle (£38.50) and the Golden Honey DSP (FREE with an order over £45 while stocks last or until 31st March). These products really work amazingly well together and those cute little bees are perfect […]
