Note Card Gift Set - Video Tutorial with Tranquil Tulips from Stampin' Up


I am absolutely in love with Tranquil Tulips, I have really enjoyed playing around with this set and trying out different colour combinations. 

I haven't found one that hasn't worked yet!

As I was making lots of cards, trying out the different looks, I decided I would make a little gift set for them - and that is the project I am sharing today.

I was going to share the cards I've made yesterday and then gift set today but time got away from me and I just didn't have time to blog yesterday so I will show you the cards tomorrow.



These little gift card sets are so easy to put together yet they really do look stunning and it is all down to the fabulous Tranquil Tulips set.

I'll be honest, I hadn't really noticed it until people started contacting me asking how they could get their hands on it. 

It is a hostess set - which means you can usually only get your hands on it if you spend over £150 in a single order or alternatively you host a party with sales over that amount. 

This month however, if you shop with me, I will send you this gorgeous set as a Thank You gift! No catch, and it isn't a competition, everybody who shops with me will get this stamp set for free. This is a gift from me and will arrive separately from your main order from SU.

To see the stamp set in more detail and see just how to make this gorgeous note card set, click HERE for my video tutorial.




I have used two different colour combinations on these sets. The red one if course Real Red, I haven't stamped off, the stamp set does all the work for you, I really do think this is my favourite colour combo.

My other combo - which I stamp in the video is Crushed Curry and Peek-a-boo Peach - and they are pretty stunning too.

Tag Topper Gift Box - Video Tutorial using Happy Birthday, Gorgeous by Stampin' Up

It is so wet and miserable here at the moment, it feels like autumn has come early. If you have any sun at the moment, could you send some to me please.

These cute little boxes are a little ray of sunshine though, bright and cheerful, they just make me smile.


The box construction is pretty simple, you can see just how simple in my video tutorial HERE

I love using the Tag Topper Punch to create a clever closure. 

The decoration is all hand stamped with one of the little flowers in Happy Birthday, Gorgeous - one of my current favourite stamp sets.


I think it is the stripy ribbon which just screams summer to me. 

Doesn't it just finish off the box beautifully - and Stampin' Up being Stampin' Up, it all coordinates perfectly!

Tranquil Tulips from Stampin' Up Card Inspiration

A pretty simple card to share with you all today showcasing the wonderful Tranquil Tulips stamp set.

This set really is stunning - it gives gorgeous results with very little effort.


I am really enjoying playing around with lots of different colours for the tulips. There are lots of different techniques you can try as well.

In this case I have gone pretty simple with just Real Red for one flower, I haven't stamped off twice or anything like that. The second flower is Crushed Curry first and then Calypso Coral.

The leaves are stamped in Old Olive and I have finished with a strip of coordinating Old Olive mini chevron ribbon tied with a little linen thread.

The sentiment is from Beautiful Bouquet - I am really loving the versatility of this set. 


Now remember that Tranquil Tulips is usually only available if you place a Stampin' Up order over £150 or host a party with sales exceeding that same amount. 

However, I am sending a brand new set to all of my customers who shop with me in July as part of their thank you pack.

And remember you will recieve a £4.50 voucher to spend in August from Stampin' Up for every £45.00 you spend in July

If you live in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, France or Austria, you can shop Stampin' Up on line with me HERE and receive this set as a thank you from me in early August.

Magnetic Monogrammed Note Book Journal - Video Tutorial Using Falling Flowers by Stampin' Up


I was standing in Paperchase the other day just about to buy a magnetic note book when I caught myself on and realised I could make one for much less than the £8.99 I was just about to spend!

I grabbed 3 A6 note books in Tescos for just 79p and set about making my version using some nano craft magnets that I had already at home - these are really thin at just 1mm thick, you will have seen me use these before. Just search nano craft magnet on ebay and you will find plenty of venders.


I made one for me in Elegant Eggplant and one for a friend using Berry Burst. It was really easy to monogramme them using the Large Letters Framelits and matching Letters for You stamp set.

The gorgeous swirling pattern is  all hand stamped - so easy to do and yet so effective, using the beautiful Falling Flowers stamp set.



To see just how it is made, click HERE for my YouTube tutorial.


As always, if you would like to buy any Stampin' Up products, you can shop on line 24/7 in my online shop HERE, or get in touch at craftycarolinecreates@gmail.com and it would be my pleasure to help.

Whole Lot of Lovely Customer Thank You Cards with Pretty Label Punch


Every month I send out a thank you gift and hand made card to everybody that has shopped with me the predeeding month.

Today I wanted to share with you the cards I sent out to all of my lovely June customers. 


The sentiment is really quite apt - I do think all my customers are the best and it makes a nice change to 'Thank You'.

It comes from the Label Me Pretty stamp set which, as you can see, coordinates perfectly with the Pretty Label punch.

Remember you can buy the stamp set and the punch together as a bundle and save 10%.


I have used two of the more subtle but equally very pretty patterns from the Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.

Popping the DSP up on a strip of complimentary colour card stock really makes the paper stands out.

The base of these cards is the very useful, ever useful in fact Whisper White note cards, which meant whipping up a big batch of these was really quick and easy.

Magazine Style Storage Box - Ideal for DSP Stacks - Video Tutorial with Stampin' Up Tempting Tulips


I love today's project, it is both practical and pretty - win win win.

You may have noticed that the new DSP stacks from Stampin' Up no longer come with the pages stuck together. 

Great - no longer do you have to worry about ripping one when you tear it off but storage is a little harder.

Step in this gorgeous magazine style storage box. 


I have decorated the box using Tranquil Tulips - this set is causing quite a stir and I can absolutely see why - it is so pretty!

This is a hostess set - which ordinarily means that you have to spend £150 or host a workshop with sales over £150 in order to get your hands on it. 

A lot of you have been in touch to ask if there was an easier way to get your hands on it - or if I might consider making it one of my thank you gifts.

Well - you asked and I listened - shop with me in July and this stamp set will be winging its way to you along with another little something in early August as a Thank you gift from me. 

There is no catch, it isn't a competition, everybody that shops with me in July will recieve a set!

I normally keep exactly what I am going to send as a Thank You gift a secret but as so many of you asked for this set, I didn't want anybody to miss out. 



Back to the box - well it is a really good size, mine is holding 4 pretty full DSP stacks right now but there is probably room for at least another one, if not two more. 

I have made some very cute little dividers to help me keep each stack separated. It also gave me the perfect excuse to try out the new tab punch - doesn't it make them look so professional.
