Wednesday’s WOW! #130 – Extending your diecuts to make them larger.
This is a tip I use so often. It works well with punched out shapes too. If you have a die or a punch that you wish would be just a little larger, cut the piece in half and separate the pieces to adhere them under the images or sentiment.
This is what Stampin’ Up! have done in the tag on page 3 of the Mini Catalogue with the Christmas Season bundle and the Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper -(and it’s a gorgeous tag they have created too).
The Week 3 project for our “A Merry Little Christmas” Series is a sweet Star Table Favour that I think will look lovely on the Christmas table this Christmas. They are very easy to make so you can whip up a few in no time.
These have been inspired by a project I saw by Deb Valder from Stampladee some time ago. I adapted it for the Table favour. The measurements are available in Metric and Imperial further below.
Here is the Star Table Favour for you. It is made with the Stitched Stars Dies.
Catch the video below.

A couple of months ago it was my Mum’s birthday. Yes a couple of months ago! We recently had to move her in to an aged card home. I didn’t know what to get her but I wanted to make a special card for her to sit on her windowsill. I thought a Card in a Box would be good.
I used the Dandy Garden Designer Series Paper with the Misty Moonlight print. Blue is her favourite colour so couldn’t miss that one. I used the Pierced Blooms Dies to create an array of flowers.
This shows it folded flat.
I have made a number of these Card In A Box type cards over the years. Click on the ‘tag’ Card in a Box and you will see them. If you want a tutorial for this version you can head -> HERE. I can’t remember now if this is the one I used. This one is in Metric.
Sadly with the restrictions (which are still going …) I couldn’t see her for her birthday but I delivered it to her home. I think she liked it. I enjoyed making it for her.
Hope you have a great week.

Yesterday I shared the Concertina Card that I made for my daughter’s 21st. Today I wanted to share with you this special little booklet I made. Of course using the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper.
It was just a little booklet with some inspirational sentiments for her.
It’s small in size and tied up with some Pale Papaya ribbon. The peach is cut from the You’re A Peach paper.
When you open it there is a little concertina piece. I have held it down here in the photo with the Bone Folder so I could take the photo.
Folding out the strip of card there is a special sentiment on each section. I used a number of different stamp sets for the sentiments and for the images.
This was really fun to create (and made from the heart to my gorgeous girl).
I will share the dimensions for it another time. I only have them in metric at the moment.
Hope you like it.
Hope your week is going ok wherever you are in the world. Thanks for visiting me and take care.
I just wanted to share a special card with you today. Yesterday my gorgeous baby girl was 21. I can’t believe where that time has gone. We are a little peach crazy in our house with perfumes and creams and all kind of Peach Scented products. So of course it had to be the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper.
I wanted to make the card a little different and found a sweet concertina style card. It’s just a little bigger version than a regular zig-zag type fold.
Here is the card from a few different views.
The ’21’ was diecut from the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper from Sale-A-Bration using the Large Numbers Dies (now retired but really I can’t get rid of those). The peaches were diecut from the paper.
I found how to make this style of card from Suzie’s blog -> HERE. The measurements are in imperial. I used those measurements as I was short for time so I haven’t got them in metric as yet. I will make another card later to share those.
I made another mini version of a concertina card as well that I will share in the next post. It is so sweet so you will want to see that.

Happy creating now with lots of colour inspiration,
I recently held my Annual Catalogue Launch. Once again I forgot to take photos of the lovely people who came but I thought I would share the projects.
I made some cute gift tags up for the treat bags. These were using the Color and Contour Bundle. I used some of the lovely new Incolors for them.
Here is a close-up of each of the colours.
They were put inside of a cello bag which had some Memories and More cards and some Pale Papaya ribbon. The Ombre Incolor bags had some Sticky Notes, teabags and of course chocolates. I love that everything can be matchy-matchy. 🙂
Each guest could make up an Incolor Bookmark. The flowers were punched out using the Flowers and Leaves Punch. Such fun!
Next post I will share the cards each guest made. That was lots of fun too.
