Pretty Diagonal Close Box with Springtime Foils DSP from Stampin' Up - Video Tutorial


Stampin' Up have really excelled themselves with the recent DSP releases.

The new Springtime Foils DSP is no exception - it is absolutely gorgeous and what is more, it is absolutely FREE at the moment during Sale-a-bration. 




This box really shows it off well.
It is such a good size and it has an opening that is a little different.

I made a feature of the paper to create the tag, punched out one of the flowers and used the Pink Pirouette Blends to give a little subtle feature.

Just a perfect, very feminine box.

Sweet Soiree Thank You Gift Wrap - Video Tutorial with Stampin' Up Products.


Another quick project from me to show you just how easy it is to make simple gifts look absolutely stunning with a little bit of help from Stampin' Up.

These are little hand creams which I sent to all of my customers as a thank you last month - along with a stamp set of course - watch the video to find out which one. 


The Sweet Soiree DSP is absolutely stunning - I have used it here to create a little wrap for each hand cream finished off with a flash of the Metallic Edged Ribbon. 

Something a little different as a gift for my customers this month - did you recieve one? What did you think?

A little Lemon Zest Lift - Card Inspiration with Stampin' Up Products.


I have had the Lemon Zest stamp set and matching Lemon Builder punch for absolutely ages so thought it was time to finally get it inky.

I can't believe it took me so long - I love how this card turned out.



The Daffodil Delight and Old Olive work well together don't they and I really love the sentiment.

This winter seems to be getting a lot of people down and this would be a nice way of sending a little lift to somebody down on their luck a little.

Fresh Heartfelt Blooms - Card Inspiration with Stampin' Up Products.


I love stamp sets that do all the work for you and the gorgeous Heartfelt Blooms certainly does that.

The level of detailing on this stamp set is amazing - what else is amazing is that it is absolutely free at the moment! During Sale-a-bration you get to pick a free item for every £45 you spend on Stampin' Up goodies.


I have used Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party here - they looks very fresh together don't you think?

I added a flash of the beautiful Lemon Lime Twist striped ribbon underneath the sentimen from Blooms and Wishes, popped out with the Tailored Tag Punch - a new favourite of mine.

Gorgeous gift packaging - video tutorial using Cake Soiree by Stampin' Up.





This is a project I have been meaning to share for a while. I actually sent these little gifts out to my customers as part of their Thank You gift pack a few months ago and then just ever got round to sharing the video with you all!

While I popped a bone folder in each one, they would also work really well with for nail files.


They are so easy to make. I used the 2016-2018 in-colours, they will be retiring soon so I want to take every possible opportunity to use them. I am really going to miss Emerald Envy.

That gorgeous tone on tone stamping and the sentiment come from the lovely Cake Soiree set and love that striped ribbon - so pretty. 

They are so easy to make, click HERE to view my video tutorial.

Celebrate with Heart Happiness from Stampin' Up.


This card has a very Valentines Day look to it doesn't it but I actually made it for one of my lovely team members, Jill of Paper Daisy Crafting who recently recruited her own team member. 

I love my team and I am always delighted when they start growing their own teams too.



I stamped the hearts in Smoky Slate, Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo using a mix of stamps from Heart Happiness.

The sentiment is die cut using the FREE Celebrate You thinlets - get these for free during Sale-a-bration when you spend over £90 on any Stampin' Up items.

Pop out surprise treat box - video tutorial with Stampin' Up products.


Whoop Whoop - technical problems sorted and I can now share this gorgeous project with you all.

If you saw my Facebook Live yesterday you will have already seen this really fun box. 

As well as looking gorgeous on the outside, when you open it up a little treat pops out.

As I say in the video, not my idea but based on a gift a customer sent me.



The heart paper is all hand stamped. The hearts come from the Tabs for Everything stamp set; I have nearly fell off my chair when I saw that set is just £15! Bargain!

 I have stamped in Real Red, Pool Party and Crumb Cake - a lovely combination. 

And how about that ribbon? 

I tool the Whisper White Metalic Edged Ribbon and coloured it with one of the Stampin' Blends - effective and so easy - the video shows you how as well.


Want to see that pop out surprise- click HERE to view my video.

Technical Difficulties - Sneak Peak and Please Stand By.



I am so disappointed right now.

I am having some technical problems with my YouTube channel which means I can't share a video with you all this morning.

And it is such a fun project.

It might look like a simple box but it has a fun surprise inside. 

And one more thing, a challenge if you like to keep you busy while we work on fixing the problem - can you find that Pool Party ribbon in the catalogue?




Keep an eye on my channel today and hopefully I will be sharing my video very soon.

Pootlers Team Blog Hop, Lots of Lavender Anniversary Celebration.





It is a pleasure to be taking part in the Pootler's blog hop today.

I am joining an incredibly talented group of ladies who all ultimately feed into my upline, the wonderful Sam Hammond Donald.

Do follow the links at the bottom of the page to hop around for lots of inspiration using Sale-A-Bration goodies.

I am proud to say that some of the ladies in the hop today are part of my team, the SimplyStylishStampers, and the project that I am sharing with you today is the card I sent to two of them whom are celebrating their second anniversary of becoming a Stampin' Up demos this month.



If you have followed me for a while you will know that my crafting tends towards Simple but Stunning and I think this card is a perfect example.

I have used the wonderful Lots of Lavender to create those lovely sprigs of flowers and the coordinating stamp set means you can colour them in super fast.  

I stamped the outline in Elegant Eggplant and coloured them with Perfect Plum and Pear Pizzazz.

I used the same three colours for the sentiment - using the every useful Number of Years.

Of course I had to send a little gift as well - come back tomorrow and I will show you how I wrapped them.

Remember until March 31st, you can pick a Sale-a-bration item for free with every £45 you spend!

Do keep hopping to see lots more inspiration using all of those freebies - apologies if it makes choosing harder!

Picture Perfect Birthday - Card Inspiration with Stampin' Up products.

I am a really big fan of the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.

As I have said before, it can take a minute or two to work out how all the individual stamps go together, but once you crack it you are away creating beautiful cards like this in minutes.




Although this called Picture Perfect Birthday, I think this card works well as a congratulations card too - that sentiment is pretty special don't you think.

I stamped in So Saffron and Calypso Coral and used one of the Tutti Frutti card blanks and matching envelopes - you can get these for free right now when you spend £45 during Sale-a-bration. 

A little flash of Calypso Coral ombre ribbon finishes it off perfectly.

Gift wallet with matching note card - video tutorial with Petal Palette from Stampin' Up.


Every month I like to send all of my customers a little gift to say thank you for choosing me as your demonstrator.

And of course, some special packaging is needed.


This month I decided to combine the wrapping for part of the gift with a coordinating thank you card and this little wallet is what I came up with.

It really showcases the gorgeous Petal Passion DSP and I love that little pop of colour from the ribbon and the little bird, stamped using Petal Palette - one of my current favorite sets.


Inside there is a little slot for the gift on one side and on the other, a cute matching note card. 

For a closer look and to see just how it is made, check out my YouTube video HERE.

Gorgeous Geometric Bowls - Papercraft Tutorial with Bubble and Fizz DSP from Stampin' Up


I love these little bowls - they are so useful, I can't stop making them and finding things to pop inside.

And like most of my projects, these are so easy to make.


You just need to start with 3 squares of paper the same size.
It then just comes down to some clever folding and a lick of glue.


You can make them any size you want, I have used 6 x 6 inch squares for the larger bowls and 4 x 4 inch squares for the smaller squares.


It really is so easy - this must be on of my shortest videos in a while. Click HERE to view.

I have used the Bubble and Fizz DSP which you can pick up for FREE when you spend £45 on Stampin' Up goodies during Sale-a-bration.
