Cross Top Favour Treat Boxes - Video Tutorial, My OnStage Swaps.


I hope all of my American readers had a great Thanksgiving yesterday.

Today I am sharing a project with you that I made for my OnStage swaps.

As you hopefully know, OnStage is a twice yearly conference for demonstrators and one of the lovely parts of OnStage is swaping creative projects with other demos.


These little boxes are perfect for favours or a little treat. I popped a Quality Street chocolate in each.


I love cross closure on these boxes and tag just finishes it off beautifully - you know I love Happy Birthday Gorgeous - the set the tag comes from. 

I also really like the way you can get three beautifully different looks from the same DSP stack, Colorful Seasons.

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.

SimplyStylishSundays - Lovely Painted Harvest



You probably know that Painted Harvest is one of my favourite sets in the current Autumn Winter Catalogue.  I was therefore absolutely delighted to receive this gorgeous card from Nancy, one of the SimplyStylishStampers, recently.

Isn't it beautiful. 

This is a colour combo I would never have thought of in a million years but how stunning is it and how clever of Nancy.

You can see more of her work over on her blog HERE



I received the card rather later than she hoped though - I found it a few days ago in a pile of post on my husband's desk where it had been sitting for a few weeks!

I wasn't snooping I promise! I was trying to find some name stickers for the children's clothes. 

Good job I did though!
