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.

Another Beautiful Day Card Idea with new Stampin' Up Product.



This card uses another of the gorgeous large stamps from Beautiful Day. I really do like this set.

I used the water colour pencils to colour in the large flowers after I had stamped them randomly all over the Whisper White card stock  in Memento Black.




And I just adore the new Tailored Tag punch. Can you see how I have used it to also add a border around the sentiment. 

The sentiment by way comes from Petal Pallette - another new favourite of mine.

Beautiful Day Card Inspiration with new Stampin' Up Products.


If you know me, you know I love blue/green colours; my husband tells me I am not allowed to buy any more teal furniture, tiles, curtains, cushions, wall paper.......................

So it obvious why I really love this card.


I have stamped the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set and then coloured it in with the Bermuda Bay and Soft Sky Stampin' Blends.

I have never really been big into colouring before but I love the effect you can get with these pens - and it is so theraputic!

I also love the way that sentiment looks - so simple but so effective. It is made using the Classic Label Punch. 

A few of the Tutti Fruitti Sequins finished it all of perfectly.

Lidded Trapezoid Box - Video Tutorial with Petal Palate by Stampin' Up.

It feels so good to be back sharing videos with you all. 

I am literally brimming over with ideas and I hope you like today's project, a really interesting shaped box - I think the shape is a trapezoid - but that sounds too formal don't you think?

Any better ideas of what to call it?


It is decorated with a hand stamped pattern using the AMAZING Petal Palette set. I have been using this set so much recently - it is so versatile.

I have also used the new Tailored Tag punch - who can resist a good punch - certainly not me!

A little of the new Organza Ribbon finishes it off perfectly.

Picture Perfect Card Inspiration - New Stampin' Up Products


Thank you to everybody that has already placed an order for new goodies from the Spring Summer catalogue which launched yesterday.

I am so glad you are enjoying it as much as I am. 

Today I am sharing a card with you created with the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set.



Now I must admit that when I first saw this set, it took me a minute to work out how everything went together!

Once I had worked it out though, I found I couldn't stop using it.

How cute are these little party whistles.


And what about these beautiful card blanks? You can get these for free when you place an order over £45 during Sale-a-bration. 
Find out more HERE!

Do you like the way I stamped the background behind the whistles to coordinate with the card blanks - it is the little coordinating details like this that make me love Stampin' Up.
