Spooky Night Halloween Pillow Boxes - Stampin' Up new product inspiration.



I am so glad that so many of you found my tutorial on how to make up the Trim Your Stocking pillow boxes on Friday useful.

If you missed it, click HERE to view now.

Today I thought I would show you how the same dies can be used to make a standard pillow box - and show you some lovely Halloween products at the same time. 

I don't normally do Halloween but as the children have already been invited to a Halloween party, I thought it was about time I did!


These boxes are made with a veritable plethora of new product - all of which can be ordered from this Friday 1st September when the new Stampin' Up catalogue goes live.

The DSP is called Spooky Night which coordinates really well with Spooky Cat stamp set - where I have taken the sentiment from.

The sentiments are punched out with a fab new punch - everyday label. I know this is going to come in very handy.

To see all these gorgeous new products in close up and how I made the boxes, click HERE for my YouTube video.

Hearts Come Home for Christmas - card inspiration with Stampin' Up Products



I have another gorgeous card to share with you all today using some more new goodies from the Autumn Winter Stampin' Up catalogue which launches THIS FRIDAY!

How cute are those houses with the trees and snow men in front. They are created with some gorgeous new Thinlet dies, Home Town Greetings - expect to see them a lot more, they're fab. 


The sentiment really resonates with me, having an international family. It comes from the coordinating stamp set, Hearts Come Home. 

The sentiment is punched out using a brand new punch - the new catalogue is packed with little gems like this.

I added just a hint of sparkle with the new silver tinsel trim peeking out from under the sentiment.

SimplyStylishStampers Blog Hop



I am so excited today to be taking part in the first ever SimplyStylishStampers Blog Hop.

The SimplyStylishStampers is the name of my Stampin' Up team and I honestly feel honoured every day that these fantastically talented ladies choose to be part of my team.

We didn't set a theme for the hop today, I just asked the ladies to feature something showing their signature style.

So of course, I had to make something with a hand stamped DSP look and my current new catalogue favourite, Painted Harvest, really stepped up.


This set just looks stunning in every colour combination I have tried. Here I have used Sweet Sugar Plum and Rich Razzleberry with a Smoky Slate centre. 

And of course the sentiment is the perfect message to each of my team, there are now over 30 SimplyStylishStampers and I really am thankful for each of them.

Do keep hopping round and visit everybody, your support really would is appreciated. My team leader is putting a special guest appearance too - of course I'm also very thankful for her too.

Just click on the Next below to head over to the next blog, Katrina has a fabulous project waiting for you.

I have to admit it, I am a little addicted to making these gorgeous little stocking pillow boxes.



They are created with a fabulous new die set, Trim Your Stockings, which are available in the new catalogue from 1st September.

There really are so many different combinations, I can't stop mixing the colours and the embelishments.

I think they look great made with the Quilted Christmas DSP stack - also available from the 1st September.

Painted Harvest Gift Box - Video Tutorial with New Stampin' Up Product



How stunning is this brand new stamp set?

It is called Painted Harvest and it is one of my current favourites from the new Autumn Winter Stampin' Up catalogue which launches on 1st September.



The gorgeous central flower is stamped in Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral, I just love the effect.

The surrounding leaves come from the same stamp set and they are punched out - yes punched - with a matching leaf punch.

There are three fantastic new coordinating punches in this new catalogue.


Lets not forget the box itself - it has a little bit of an extra luxurious opening. 

You can see just how I made it and how I stamped that gorgeous flower in my video HERE.

Hidden Letters Home Decoration with Home Life by Stampin' Up


A little something different from me today. 

I was looking for some simple prints to decorate our apartment we use when visiting family in Denmark but couldn't find anything I really liked that wasn't too expensive. 

So of course I decided to have a go at making something myself and this is what I came up with. 

I love the way the last few letters of HELLO are hidden in the Home Life stamp.

It is perhaps a little more subtle than I would like but overall I am pleased with the result.


I really do like the Home Life stamp set - a bit of a hidden gem in my opinion. 

The letters are of course cut using the Large Letters - these were quite a big investment but I can't believe just how much I use them. Well worth it in my opinion. 


My colours are Berry Burst, Crushed Curry and Emerald Envy.


You can view my video on how to make this HERE.

Silver Congratulations Card with Memories and More from Stampin' Up



I have said it many time before but signing up as a Stampin' Up demo to get a discount on product I was buying to make my wedding stationary was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I can't believe that decision has grown into blooming business which is paying for both my crafting addiction and some little treats for my family (and for me too without me feeling guilty!).

I am always thrilled when somebody joins my team, be that for the discount on their own purchases or to start growing their own business too.


This is a card I made to send to one such business builder recently. Lorna is doing a great job growing her own team and recently promoted to Silver. 

The letters are cut out using the Large Letter framelits which I can't stop using at the moment.

The background 'DSP' isn't DSP at all, it a Petal Garden Memories and More card - the gorgeous flower image is a sticker from the same pack - as is the frame for the congratulations sentiment. 

Using the Memories and More card seemed apt as Lorna selected a Memories and More Album and Pocket Pages as a congratulations gift from me. 

Well done Lorna - I am so proud of you.

Stunning Card with Petal Garden DSP by Stampin' Up


When you start with DSP this beautiful, it is easy to make a stunning card.

How lovely is this paper from the Petal Garden DSP stack.


The sentiment some from the Garden in Bloom stamp set - an oldie but a goodie.

I made a few of these cards to send out to some of my team members that recently started growing their own teams - it really is a special feeling when somebody chooses to join your team and so the sentiment felt very appropriate.


I added a little extra interest by cropping the edge of the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes Framelits - isn't it effective. 

The Stitched Shapes Framelits have to be my most used item, I just love them.

Home Life Team Member Welcome Card - Inspiration with Stampin' Up Products


Some times Mondays need a little extra help don't they, so hopefully this card is something bright and cheery to start your week with.

I hope they brought a little smile to the faces of the recipients, I designed them to send out to some lovely new members of my team Stampin' Up team - the SimplyStylishStampers. 

It always makes my day when somebody decides to join my team and I really love sending a little card and gift to say Thanks and Welcome to the Team.


For this card I used the lovely Home Life stamp set and Welcome Home Framelits.

I love this colour combination too, Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Lemon Lime Twist. 

I firstly made this card with a plain background but it was just a bit well - flat. Running the mat through the Ruffles embossing folder made such a difference don't you think.
