Convention Swaps


This is what I made for my swaps for this years Stampin'Up! Convention.....
I made 100 swaps and although they were not difficult they were a lot of work so ended up taking me several weekends to complete...good job I started them in good time.....

I changed my mind about the penguin (although I love him) I wanted a bit of sparkle so I punched out the large flower from the boho blossom punch from silver glimmer card for the center, however silly me I forgot to take a picture of the revised card and I didn't have any swaps left......doh!!!!
Anyway you get the idea, hope you enjoy, thanks for stopping by...

Convention 2013


Well Convention 2013 promised to be the best yet and it didn't disapoint, it was Stampin'Up!'s 25th year in America and 5th year in Europe, so there was lots to celebrate.

The main stage area was huge and this year there were no tables we sat in rows, because there were so many of us!

There were lots of display boards full of amazing cards and projects.......

This is just a tiny selection of what was there, along side these was an area set up for My Digital Studio (MDS) with laptop for you to have a play with the program and experts on hand to help with any questions or queries you might have.
Plus there were training sessions you could attend on business training, MDS, creative training, all sorts.....
In addition there was another huge room with tables where you could do your make n takes, eat lunch, try out different tools, view the momento mall merchandise and do the service project.

Well I think thats enough for now I will be back with more, Thanks for stopping by......

Gift Boxes


Appologies for my lack of posts, I have been really busy and have taken lots of photos but just have not had the time to upload onto my blog.........
Here are some Gift boxes I have made using the new Stampin'Up! envelope board, I have added a handmade broach as an embellishment. (sadly the bottletops are no longer available from Stampin'Up!) sigh.....can't say whats inside as that would spoil the surprise for the

 The next gift box is actually quite a nice size, I made this for my upline Michelle for Convention 2013, it contained something she liked from America a particular kind of sweet you can't get over here.

These boxes were so easy to make, in fact the most difficult part of this one was the snowflake
Well thanks for stopping by I will be back with some posts about Convention was awsome..

New Flip Card Thinlits...


If you're wondering what all the fuss is about, these are wonderful thin metal dies that can be used to make interactive flip cards like this one made by  Stampin' Up!

This is how the card looks as it opens...
Isn't it great. And all made quickly and efficiently by running it through your big shot and folding along the score lines! It is that simple! You can make whole batches of these in no time at all!

This is what the dies look like:
As you can see above, there are two different options: the labels version on the left and the circle version on the right. There are loads of extras with each too which are great fun to use on these flip cards or other cards and projects! Take a look at this short Stampin' Up video to see how it's done:
And priced at £29.95 for each set, they are brilliant value too!
If you would like to order you do so on my online shop any time day or night. 
Or if you have any queries, or prefer to speak to me, I'm always happy to help.
You can contact me on 01235 223872
