First Stampin’ Up/Project Life Pages!!

I am very excited to share my first Project Life pages with you.  They are very basic and I’m sure I will look back at them in months to come and be shocked at how basic they really were (just like I do with my first cards).  However, I just love the system. It really couldn’t be easier.  You start off with a basic kit of pocket pages and a card collection… Read More »

Stampin’ Up CASE of Hardwood and Petite Petals

I’m STILL waiting on my photo delivery!!  It has shipped but they are still not here.  If you read my last post, you’ll know how excited I am to finally get my life in order, so to speak, and join the scrapbooking revolution that is Project Life.  But it’s going to have to wait another day as I have nothing to put in my pocket pages as yet. So, I’ll… Read More »

However, even though my Project Life goodies are here, my photos are not 🙁 I have been looking at various Project Life Facebook groups and on our own Stampin’ Up/Project Life groups and… Read More »

Last few days of Happy Watercolour

By now, I am sure you are all familiar with Happy Watercolour.  It is one of my absolute favourite sets and the source of many of my cardmaking ideas and inspiration. I am sorry to report that it is not being continued in our new annual catalogue.  That means it will be retiring on June 30th.  . I also used it most recently in my private class that I talked… Read More »

Stampin’ Up UK says goodbye to some old favourites!

      So, it’s that time of the year when we are getting closer and closer to our brand new catalogue (launch date July 1st).  A great number of products are carried over but we do lose some old favourites to make way for some brand new products.  I apologise that I am publishing the list a bit late as I just got back from my half term break. This year, our… Read More »

Stampin Up UK Video Tutorial – Simply Pressed Clay

Morning! Someone asked me recently about our Simply Pressed Clay – found in our annual catalogue. It is really one of our hidden gems, so easy to use and so inexpensive.  You can see it here in our catalogue together with the moulds. There are so many ways to use it and colour it and add a bit of glitz and shimmer to it.  So IO thought who better to showcase… Read More »

Stampin’ Up’s Morning Meadow is so Versatile!

Not a flower in sight this time! No pastels either! I thought I would show you a totally different card using Stampin’ Up’s hostess set, Morning Meadow. I showed you 2 cards already this week using this set in different colourways, this time I am going for Real Red.

Stampin’ Up! UK CASE of Morning Meadow with a hint of Stretch Ruffle Trim

I often hear the refrain of ‘but I’m not artistic’ or ‘I don’t have the ideas’.  Quite frankly, I don’t always come up with original ideas either!  Luckily, Stampin’ Up! have a policy known as CASE-ing which stands for Copy and Share Everything.  Sometimes, I see a design online that gives me an idea, or maybe I copy the layout with different supplies, or in this case, I fall in… Read More »
