3D projects


I have been wanting to share these projects with you for a couple of months now but with all the busyness of Christmas they were just put aside.  So, before we get right in to Sale-A-Bration and sharing any more from the new Occasions Catalogue coming out I thought I should show you these NOW!!  At the end of October last year I had a stall at the local craft fair here.  I only had 2 weeks to get organised but I made a number of different projects to sell. I know that when I do craft fairs I go searching for ideas on the internet and I am sure you do the same too if you do markets or fairs. These projects are nothing startling but I thought I might share them with you if it might help you with ideas.  I will share these ideas through a number of posts this week.

Firstly, since it was leading up to Christmas I created some little Christmas treat boxes.


I found this idea on Pinterest.  This is using the Milk Carton Die.  I cut 3 of them – 2 in Gumball Green and one in Cherry Cobbler.  I wrapped Cherry Cobbler Grosgrain ribbon around the 3 and added some mini clothes pegs to seal them.  On the front of the boxes I added scallop circles punched from retired Christmas paper and cut ‘JOY’ from silver Glimmer paper.


Another quick project was some Mini purses using the Petite Purse die.  I used some retired DSP and added some simple embellishments on the front.  Inside I added a few chocolate treats.

I have some more projects to share with you tomorrow so stop by again to check them out.




One of the great features with the Stampin’ Up! products that I think many people love is how great they co-ordinate together.  Card, ink, ribbons co-ordinate.  Stamp sets co-ordinate with punches and dies.  What about stamp sets co-ordinating with other stamp sets??? Well, this new little stamp set available in the upcoming Occasions Catalogue looks great when used on it’s own but how great is it when you combine it with one of the other stamp sets!


The small flowers are from the new stamp set ‘Petite Petals’.  There are 6 little flower stamps in the set plus there is a matching punch.  They are very cute on their own BUT why not layer them! Here I have added them with a flower from the ‘Flower Shop’ set.  For this card I have used some of the new DSP ‘Watercolor Wonder’. Absolutely gorgeous paper. You must grab some of this.  The colours and images are just beautiful.  The problem is though that each side is so beautiful it seems a shame to cover up one side to use on a card!  On the card I have also used the new Embossing Folder – Decorative Dots.  You can grab one of these for Free during Sale-A-Bration with a $90 order.  You will need that Embossing Folder too.  The greeting on this card is from ‘Remembering Your Birthday’. This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.

Hope you like what you see!!!

Would you like your own copy of the upcoming Occasions Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure?? Let me know and I can send one directly to you. I am mailing them out now. (Australian Residents only).  You will be able to check out these products I have used on this card PLUS so many more great products. Don’t forget the freebies you can get during Sale-A-Bration with your $90 order!

Thanks for stopping by,




Yes, I stamped! Not an amazing revelation really BUT it has been 2 weeks since I had touched a stamp.  That’s a long time for me.  It has been a good break though.  I opened up one of the new Sale-A-Bration sets I received last week and created not ONE but TWO cards!! Whoo Hoo!!  Here they are.  OK, they are both the same BUT….


This card was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest (sorry not sure who by though).  I changed the card to a standard size card.  I think the other one was a 10cmx10cm one.  I used the stamp set ‘Perfectly Penned’ and stamped this on a small strip of Whisper White in Black StazOn.  I added a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper underneath and added the small banners.  The Banners are from the Sale-A-Bration set ‘Banner Blast’ which is one of the Free choices you can get during Sale-A-Bration starting on the 28th January.  You can get a little Banner punch to punch them out too.  No hand-cutting here!! The Whisper White strip was then adhered to a Whisper White Card base.  The colours I used for the Banners on the card on the left were Pacific Point, Soft Sky and Tempting Turquoise.  The banners on the right hand card were Real Red, Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo. I was going to make some other colour combinations but I stopped there.  I wasn’t sure whether they were a bit plain.  What do you think????  Here they are individually to get a closer look.



I have just received my preorder of some of the goodies coming up in the new Occasions Catalogue.  This starts on January 28th.  I can’t wait to get creating with these goodies and share the projects with you.  There is so much to love.  I am having a little trouble deciding what to start with first!!  If you would like your very own copy of the new Occasions Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration brochure then drop me a message and I will get one to you as soon as I can.

Happy Stamping,


Stampin' Up!



Happy New Year to you!  I hope that 2014 brings you good health and happiness and that all your dreams come true.   I just hope it doesn’t fly by so quickly as this past year has.  I am excited what the New Year will bring especially for the new people that I can share stamping with.  I have just received my report in from WORDPRESS for my blog activities for 2013.  It is always interesting reading. I thought I would share a few facts.

Thank You to you if you are one of the 10,000 viewers to my blog in 2013.  Most visitors were from Australia followed closely by the US with visitors from many other countries.  I am excited that you stop by.  Thank You. I do hope you will continue to visit me as I share more projects in 2014.  Out of interest most of the viewers have come from Pinterest with Facebook a close second.   Would you like to know what my top posts have been this year??

The Most viewed post of this year was in fact just a recent post on November 2nd with the release of the Thinlets and the Envelope Punch Board.  The Envelope Punch Board has been one HOT item. You can check out the full post here if you missed it.  This is the project I shared for that post using the new Thinlets Framelits.


The 2nd highest views was for my Large Tote Bag Tutorial which received a high number of views in 2012 too.  You can find the post which has the tutorial here.

Here is the photo of the Tote Bag.


I was intending to make a new one for Christmas with some of the great ‘Season of Style’ DSP but it didn’t happen.  I think when I get some of the gorgeous new paper from the Occasions Catalogue then I will make one up, so stay tuned for that one!

So, Thank You all once again for being with me in my blogging journey in 2013. I don’t really blog my projects for my benefit but I hope that I inspire you????!!!!  So stop by and visit.  Do leave me a comment.  It’s nice that you visit and I would love to know where you are from.

To more creating in 2014!

Jenny xx
