DSP Fond Farewell ~ Thank You’s

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I am always looking for inspiration and sometimes that comes from fellow demonstrators!  Due to one thing and another I was not able to send my usual  ‘Thank You’ to my March customers who shopped for their Stampin’ UP! goodies with me.  So when it came to April I knew  I needed to do a something special for them and my April customers.  I found this really great ‘twisted’ packet from Sam Donald so made a bunch of them from several of the soon to be retiring designer series papers.

Pretty Handmade Gift Box

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I make and share  lot of cards on my blog, I was working on some designs one evening and looking for a change and some inspiration and there was some off-cuts of Designer Series Paper on my work bench.  I decided a box would make a nice change ~ so I started with the largest piece of DSP to make the lid then worked backwards to make the base of the box, choosing one of the colors from the paper.

I share the ones I made below but set myself a challenge with the video to create a box for a Bath Bomb from scratch (keeping my fingers crossed all the time that it would work out)

Timeless Tropical Virtual Vacation

Welcome back to my corner of the world

So we are all still practicing social distancing and if you are like me, hunkering down in the house and garden.  I am sure we are all looking forward to our  lives opening up at some time but in the meantime I have a virtual vacation to share today from the Stampin’ UP! Tropical Oasis Suite of products.

If you were part of my DSP, Ribbon and Embellishment Share back in January/February you will already have some of these great products in your stash, now would be a great time to pull them out and have a virtual vacation of your own! Continue reading

Thank You ~ Gift Card Holder

Welcome back to my corner of the world

As many of you know, during tax season, I work for the largest retail tax preparation service here in the US.  Today would normally be ‘Tax Filing Day’ but this year it has been extended to July 15th, however today is the last day of my 18th tax season.  I recognize the help and support of our people who work the front desk in the office and we have a little ‘whip-round’ to give a little gift to them as a sincere thank you for their hard work, as a paper crafter I cannot just give them the card – it has to be prettied up!

I have shared this style of gift card holder before, if you scroll down you will see a link to the video I made at the time, but today’s one is using current papers and dies.
