Jar of Nuggets ~ video tutorial

I love to make 3D items, particularly ones that hold treats and even more particularly when those treats are chocolate.

In keeping with an autumnal theme I made these treats for the ladies who came to my one day Stampin’ Getaway in October, each lady found one on her work table when she returned from lunch.

While they look a little involved they really are very easy to make, to prove it I have made a video for you to follow ūüôā Continue reading

Decorated Sticky Notes ~ video

Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper was launched in the 2017 – 2018 Stampin’ Up! annual catalog, it has all of the new In-colors,8 sheets of each of the 5 colors – that is 40 sheets of 12 x 12 paper to play with!

At the beginning of June I held my new catalog launch where I invite all my customers to come ooohhh and aaahhh over the new products, do some make and takes (using new products) and get their own copy of the new catalog.  As a thank you to them for shopping with me throughout the year and for coming to the launch I gave each of them a decorated pad of sticky notes (plus a pen) so they could mark all their favorites ready to add to their wish lists!

Irresistibly Floral Card ~ Stampin’ Up! Products

I love heat embossing ~ it just has to be one of my most favorite techniques, but when you add the ‘resist’ part of the technique it really gives a punch to the finished project. ¬†Sometimes, though it is nice not to have to do the heat embossing and just go onto the ‘resist’…. and the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Paper a perfect solution! ¬†I wanted to showcase this gorgeous paper in a recent class and here is the card we all ¬†made…………………

I have a small but delightful team of ladies who are part of the Stampin’ Up! family with me. ¬†I wanted to make them a small thank you gift for Christmas using products from Stampin’ Up.

I am a little late in posting this and the video as Christmas is now 3 weeks behind us – but the idea can be used for any occasion – in fact I think they would make very nice shower favors – they can be made in the party’s color scheme.
