Welcome to my Corner of the World

At the moment Stampin’ UP! is in the last 3 weeks of Sale-a-bration where you can choose exclusive free products when you place a product order of at least $50. Today’s card features the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper and by using it to create this fun fold we can see both sides of the paper!

Christmas Ornament Contemporary Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

This time next week it will be Christmas Day!!! After a year of everything being turned on its head I am determined to hold onto some of my Christmas traditions, I have my trees decorated, lights on the outside of the house and a traditional (English) Christmas Lunch planned!

Welcome to the Team – Thoughtful Blooms Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A couple of weeks ago I had one of my lovely customers decide to join my team as a hobby demo – so she could take advantage of the discount when buying her goodies – I wanted to give her a personal thank you for making that decision and gave her a package of goodies along with a hand-made card!

Sale-a-bration is the perfect time to join Stampin’ UP! as a demonstrator, there are extra goodies offered as well as the usual great deal of choosing $125 worth of any goodies in the the catalogs for just $99.  When I joined around 9 1/2 years ago it was one of the best decisions I have ever  made (after marrying my husband, of course 🙂 )  If you scroll down the post a little further there is a link that will take you straight to more details.

It showcases the very pretty Pressed Petals Designer Series Paper along with the Layered With Kindness stamp set from the 2020 Mini Catalog.
