3D projects, Stampin' Up!


When I was at the South Pacific Convention back in late April (yes that long ago!!), I had a play with the Gift Bag Punch Board.  This is a new punch board in the catalogue.  I am sure by now you have seen lots of fun bags and boxes using this new tool.  I haven’t got one but I recently assembled the bag I made. I wasn’t sure how I was going to finish it off I guess that is why it took so long. 🙂 I thought I would show you the finished result.

I used my favourite set ‘Awesomely Artistic’.  Check it out!


I stamped the blossoms and the “dotty” strip in Soft Sky on to the Soft Sky Bag base.  The sentiment frame was stamped in Smoky Slate on Smoky Slate card with the greeting stamped in Tangerine Tango.  This was cut with the Project Life Framelits.  The dragonfly was stamped in Tangerine Tango and fussy cut.  I had to add some Silver Metallic Thread loops.  I only just received that thread THAT DAY! Whoop!  I tied off the bag with the White Cotton Ribbon.

Check out a close-up of the thread loops.


Hope you like it?  If you do a quick search for the Gift Bag Punch Board you can find lots of different ways of using this board.  If you check out on Pinterest there will be LOTS more ideas. 🙂  Check out the Stampin’ Up! Youtube video below to see how easy it is to use.  (If you receive this blog post by email you might need to go directly to my blog post to view the video.  Sorry.  Sometimes the video links get missed)

Thanks for checking out my ‘Awesomely Artistic’ bag.

Have a great day,

Classes, Stampin' Up!, Uncategorized


I thought I would share some of the things from my launch on the weekend.  It was such a fun time and I am sorry if you couldn’t make it. 🙂

Firstly, I have to show you my butterfly wall.  It is a bit hard to photograph.  The lighting is not the best.  It is a bit overcast today when I took these photos.


I will show you some close-ups. I have used the Butterflies Thinlets and the cute new Incolor Blossom Accents.




These are some of the treat bags I made for my lovely guests.  Sorry I didn’t take photos of all the flower colours.  These were last minute things as my order didn’t arrive until the 11th hour. The glue was still drying when the first guests arrived 🙂

I used the large Cello bags. I added some of the sheets from the ‘Cherry on Top’ DSP stacks and added a doily.  I cut some Balloons and banners with the Balloon Framelits and added a chocolate treat and some post-it notes.


It is hard to tell in the photo but I ran the bag through the Big Shot with the Boho Chic Embossing Folder.


Here is a close-up of the pegs for the bags.  I punched out a flower with the Petite Petals Punch and adhered a flower onto it with the Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  This was then adhered to a little peg.  It was a simple, cute idea.  I got the idea from a lovely friend of mine 🙂


I thought I would share the Colour Comparison chart for the new Incolors.  It’s a good way to see how they fit in with other current colours.  (Once again sorry about the lighting!  I really have to do something about this). 🙂


Next post I will show you the Make and Takes we did.  I think that is enough photos for one day. 🙂

3D projects, Masculine, Stampin' Up!


A few weeks ago I saw a cute Faceted box on a Facebook group I am on.  Of course, one must have a go at one of these!  I thought I would show you my version.  Then I will show you where to go to make your own.

I thought for this it would be good to make a male version.

P1160084            P1160082

I have used Night of Navy and Crumb Cake cardstock and used a new stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue ‘Guy Greetings’. This is a good one to tuck some chocolates in for the males in your family.  They are always the ones that are hard to make for aren’t they!

What do you think??  I thought at first it would be really hard to make with all those angled sides, but it was really easy once you got the scoring and cutting right.

Do you want to make your own?? My lovely friend Sam created this box {waving HI SAM] 🙂 Here is the You tube link for you to make it.  Really it is not hard so don’t be scared off by all those angled sides.

Now the funny thing after Sam posted this tutorial things went a little crazy and little Faceted boxes were streaming onto our group page.  So fun to see all the versions.  You can check them out on Sam’s page.  She posted them to show how crazy things were. HERE THEY ARE!

So now go and check the Youtube video out and make your own version.  Why not send me a photo of your version and I can share it with Sam.  🙂

Happy Stamping,




I shared some cards in the last post made with Blackberry Bliss and Crazy About You.  I decided to create some more the other day while I still had everything out.

This first one was CASED from Pinterest by Melissa Davies.  I love the simple one layer nature of it. (Apologies for the poor lighting.  The weather has been rainy and overcast most of this week).


The leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  See the flower?? I have stamped the flower 3 times and layered them.  The first flower was punched with the Medallion Flower Punch.  The 2nd and 3rd ones I cut the flowers down smaller following the lines of the flowers.  One smaller than the next. I added a Baker’s Twine bow to the centre with glue dots.


The second card was CASED from Pinterest also but I don’t know who the original creator was I am sorry.  The card base is Pear Pizzazz and has a Blackberry Bliss mat.  The flowers were stamped twice directly on the Whisper White card with Pear Pizzazz leaves.  I stamped another flower on scrap white card and punched this out and raised this one up with the mounting tape.  Just a tip for stamping the leaves particularly the one under the raised flower.  I placed the flower on the card and I could then see the best position for the leaves. Another white twine bow was added to the centre.  I added a little butterfly punched from Blackberry Bliss using the Itty Bitty Butterfly punch.  A little bling is always nice to finish the card off!



Thanks for stopping by again.  I do appreciate your visits.  Please say Hi. It’s nice to know I am not just putting these up here for myself.  Hey! I have already seen them 😉

Stop by again soon,
