Crackers for these crackers!

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a project I learned how to make from a lovely fellow demo called Hazel Benn.  I just loved the cute little crackers - and they were SO easy to create.

I couldn't wait to teach my lovely class ladies. They are made from Whisper White cardstock decorated with Seasons of Style DSP.


I finished them with the Christmas greeting from 'That's the Ticket' and the fabulous Silver ribbon from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.


If you are local to Hampshire and want to join me for a class, why not contact me? I would love to hear from you.

Little Gift Card Holder

Hello Everyone


Today's project is a little gift card holder. I have used lots of goodies from the Autumn/Winter catalogue from Stampin' Up!

The greeting and inside stamping are done with the stamp set Wishing You. The little bows are pre-tied on to the clips, making the closure really simple.


When you open the holder you find a space for a gift card - or in my case you find a Disney room key card...couldn't find a gift card for the picture. LOL


You can see how the simple fold works in the photo below.


I hope you like this quick and easy gift card holder.

VIDEO Grungy card from scratch....

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a video of a card I made up as I went along. This is really the way I create...changing my mind as I go. Like many of us, a mistake becomes a happy accident, or an embellishment opportunity!

When you have watched the video, scroll down to the bottom of this post and see the mess I was working in...then you will understand why I kept losing things! LOL





Oh dear - a bit of a mess to clear up! :)

Perfect Packaging

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing two ideas for using the Tag a Bag gift Bags from Stampin' Up! As you may know I LOVE the gift boxes, (also on page 158 of the big catalogue), but I had some questions about how to use the bags - and here is what I came up with...


The first idea is actually to snip off the bottom of the bag, snip up in four corners, fold in and create a bag that stands up. I have decorated with the lovely Chalk Talk stamp set cut with the matching framelits.


My second project is my favourite. By simply placing the paper bag inside one of our large cello bags, you get a luxury look! Again I finished with a Chalk Talk label, Natural Trim Ribbon and Linen Thread.



There are lots of other ways of using these cute bags - will you be adding them to your wish list? :)
