VIDEO Wild About Flowers in an English Garden

Hello Everyone

The title of my blog post today comes from the main two Stampin' Up! products I used - Wild About Flowers stamp set and English Garden Designer Series Paper.

But I thought I would just share a little picture of part of my English garden today. I have been out planting flowers - but it will take a while before the colour comes through….so on with the video.

I Love It When My Goodies Come Together!

Hello Everyone

One thing I love about Stampin' Up! is the co-ordination you get - with matching card stock, ink and accessories to stamps matching punches.

Here we have a classic example. In the Spring/Summer catalogue, we introduced the Mini Treat Bag Die and now with the arrival of the new big catalogue from Stampin' Up! we have a co-ordinating stamp set.

The Mini Treat Bag Die set comes with a banner, heart and star cutter (along with much more) and these shapes are reflected in the new stamps - how beautifully they go together.

The stamp set is called You're So Sweet and I have used it on each of the treat bag projects below. See how the star is outlined with a line and the word 'hello' (slightly obscured behind the ribbon on this photo) - and the 'just for you' sentiment is inlaid behind the frame on the spotty bag.

Don't you love it when your goodies come together?

Quick Tip Video - Cleaning your Stampin' Up! Stamps

Hello Everyone

Back with another quick tip video - today all about cleaning your stamps. What I didn't say on the video was how to clean your Stampin' Scrub. I simply hold the whole thing under the cold tap until the water runs clear, then leave it to drain and dry.

Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set

Hello Everyone

When I first saw the new catalogue from Stampin' Up! one of the sets that jumped off the page at me was this one - Awesomely Artisic. Firstly I could see at a glance it would work perfectly with one of my all time favourites, Gorgeous Grunge - but it was also such a versatile set with delicate images for any occasion.

I love the dragonfly image - the mini grunge spots - the hessian type edge stamp and in fact each and every stamp in the set. Even though I am NOT Awesomely Artistic - this set makes me look as though I am!

I finished this card with a button and some lined thread. If you don't already have a catalogue you can pop to my online shop and check out the rest of the images here.  (Just look under products / stamps for Awesomely Artistic).

My Story

I know I have new people visiting my blog, so thought I would  a share a little bit about me and how I got to do the BEST job in the world! 

My name is Elizabeth and I just LOVE to share my passion for stamping. I started by buying just a couple of ink pads and a stamp set a few years ago...and I was hooked. Now I am a full time Stampin' Up! demonstrator and get to wake up every morning and do what I love.

There is nothing better than being able to introduce others to the wonders of Stampin' Up!  If you want to come to a class, a workshop, an event, a party or join me on one of my free weekly video tutorials I am here to share what I have learned and help you create amazing projects you will be proud to give.

Since being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator I have had made more friends than I could ever have imagined and now I get to pay my bills by stamping too! smiley


I also support a growing team of wonderful demonstrators who also love to share. We are callled the Dazzling Dreamers and we always welcome new stampers to our happy family.

If you would like to contact me about attending an event, ordering some Stampin' Up! goodies or starting a fabulous crafty business, feel free to get in touch. I am always available on email, or you can call me Mon-Sat 8am-8pm UK time. I would love to hear from you and help your stamping dreams come true. 

I have been married for almost 20 years to my soulmate Michael, who is a songwriter and is really supportive of my Stampin' Up! business. We love to holiday in Walt Disney World whenever we can - in fact we are now Disney Vacation Club member - which means we get to go more often! My nieces, who I adore, call me Auntie Disney - they love to stamp with me too! 

Love and hugs
