VIDEO - Post it note desk holder

Hello Everyone

**IMPORTANT - at the time I created these projects, all the items on the retirements list were available - but many have now sold out. Please go to my online store here to check for current availability. Note that some stamp sets not available in Clear Mount are still available in Wood Mount. ***

Today's project is a desk holder for post it notes that we made in class last month.  Hope you enjoy it.

Feeling Kinda Eclectic

Hello Everyone

This stamp set is gorgeous - frankly you just cannot make a bad card with it! Called Kinda Eclectic, you can see that the stamps are just lovely.

The two butterflies in the set co-ordinate with the Large and Small butterfly punches - but for me the stand out stamp is the leaf one - just so pretty and useful to use with lots of flower stamps and punches too.


Here I used the greeting from Peace, Love and Cupcakes. Hope you like it.

Blackberry Box!

Hello Everyone

I love this little Fry Box - it is made from the die exclusively available in the Stampin' Up! catalogue, (and also available on my online store here)

I made these up in Park Lace designer series paper on the left and Blackberry Bliss card stock with the DSP on the left.

The hearts and flower come from a stamp set called Peace, Love and Cupcakes and punched with the Sweetheart punch - love that shape.


The ribbon is in Smokey Slate and I just love how these little boxes turned out.

I Love Lace with Summer Silhouettes

Hello Everyone

Today's project is using the fabulous I Love Lace background stamp. This stamp looks great in any colour and combines well with all sorts of other stamps.

Here I used Summer Silhouettes in Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.


The greeting comes from Wetlands and fits beautifully in the Large Oval and Scallop Oval layers.

Hope you like it :)

Fancy Bags with Swallowtail

Hello Everyone




Todays projects are decorated paper bags. These bags come plain white and I decided to jazz them up and make them into pretty gift bags. I used the stunning Swallowtail stamp set. It is funny, it took me ages to decide to buy it because the image is big - but since I've had it, I have used it a lot!

I stamped in Memento black ink and coloured in with Blendabilites. This image makes is to easy to get a really great vibrant effect.








Here is a close up of the colouring - do you like it? I used Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Blendabilities here.





And then I did another colour way for this one with Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Blendabilties and Blackberry Bliss cardstock stamped with Summer Silhouettes.








I hope you like today's fancy bags and I hope the recipients will like them too.
