Say Hello to the Climbing Orchid - Card Inspiration with Stampin' Up Products


This is a stamp set I have had for a little while now but haven't had a chance to get inky.

I needed to make two cards to welcome two brand new members of the SimplyStylishStampers and I found myself reaching Climbing Orchid and I am so glad I did.


These cards are so simple but I am really pleased with the way they have turned out. 

I simply stamped the two ornate Orchid images in Versamark and then heat embossed them in white.


I stamped the sentiment three times to make a little banner - I like the way the colours contrast and coordinate each other.

I will certainly be playing with this set a little more in future.

SimplyStylishSundays - Meeting the SimplyStylishStampers.


It was my absolute pleasure to spend last weekend with so many members of my wonderful team, the SimplyStylishStampers. 



Some of them attended OnStage with me and then some more ladies came along on Sunday when my upline, the fabulous Sam Hammond Donald and I were hosting a day of crafting and business training. 



It was such a pleasure to spend time with these ladies and get to know them all a bit better. 

I am so honoured to have them as part of my team.

I gave each of them a little gift - a Stampin' Up apron which I had embroidered with their names and our team name, the SimplyStylishStampers. 


Of course I had to make a box for each apron ad of course I forgot to take a photo of them boxes before I gave them out!

Luckily, the lovely Gez from Nigezza Creates, shared the photo above with me. 


They seemed to go down really well with the ladies and I was absolutely delighted when Jill from Paper Daisy Crafting shared this photo wearing her apron just before her class was about to start this week.

It really was a wonderful weekend made even more special by sharing it with these ladies. I can't wait to see them all again.

Full Size Wine Bottle Gift Box - Video Tutorial with Trim Your Stockings by Stampin' Up


Apologies for not posting for a little while - things got really hectic and I had to drop a few balls but it feels brilliant to be crafting and sharing again. 

Today I have a much requested project - this is a box which houses a full sized bottle of wine. 

I did a version of this box a few year ago for a smaller bottle and thought it was about time I scaled it up.



This picture really doesn't do it justice - I will take another tomorrow in hopefully better light.

The holly around the base and the sentiment come from the Trim Your Stockings stamp set.

If you would like to see how it is made - click HERE to watch my video tutorial.

Gorgeous Compartmented Box with Color Me Happy and Stampin' Blends - Video Tutorial


Today's box was inspired by a request from a lovely customer. Hessa wanted me to design a box that would hold two Nespresso coffee capsules and some sugar sachets and this is what I came up - I hope that you like it Hessa!


The lid is decorated using the brand new stamp set, Color Me Happy which launched on 1st November along with the amazing Stampin' Blends alcohol markers which I have used to colour the flowers. 


Inside there are three compartments - I designed them for Nespresso capsules but of course you could fit so many other things in there too.
