Light-Up Framed Decoration using Bethlehem Edgelit Dies

We have lots of resources to use as Stampin’ Up demonstrators when it comes to finding project inspiration. I found this idea using a different set on one of our Facebook groups from Kathryn Simpson.  Later another fellow demonstrator from my home country, Emma Fawcett made a similar project using the Bethlehem edgelits,  I loved her version and wanted to use it in a class but needed to simplify it… Read More »

Pillow Box Video…

So today I am feeling very under the weather! Christmas card production has ground to a halt for the moment. Luckily, I had no events planned this weekend or that could have been disastrous. So due to my mystery bug, I don’t have a new project for you today but I thought I would share a video direct from Stampin’ Up showcasing the Pillow Box Thinlit dies. These are gorgeous… Read More »

Stampin’ Up Advent Calendar with Tiny Treat Boxes

We always make a showstopper piece at my Christmas Crafternoon and this year we made this fabulous Advent Calendar.

Happy New Year one and all!

2015 has arrived! Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? I must admit, I don’t make any ‘formal’ resolutions as I rarely even remember what they were come March! I am going to try and look after myself a little bit more, drink a bit more water, exercise a little but no ridiculous resolutions that I know I wont keep up with. I’m also going to try and keep up with… Read More »
