Special November Offers

All the stamp sets below are available at 25% discount until the end of November.  These sets co-ordinate with the brand new ‘Stitched from the heart’ set of framelits that are available ahead of their official release in the 2017-18 annual catalogue.  I had thought I’d placed my last order this year, and then this offer comes out!  If you would like to take advantage of the offer, or just want to add anything to an order, please let me know by next weekend (20th) and it will be here in time for Christmas!

There are lots of amazing card ideas on Pinterest using these stamp sets, so go and have a look, and then let me know!!!  One of the favourite amongst my Stampin’ Up! family has been the Baby Bear stamp set that was £23 and is now £17.25 – what a  great price!  I’ve got my eyes on the Tin of Tags set which I may use to decorate my Christmas pressies this year.
Have a browse through the products on offer, and let me know if there’s anything you would like!

Happy Christmas Stampin’

A Very Happy 40th Birthday...

This card was made for a special friend of mine that celebrated her 40th birthday earlier this summer.  

I created the background paper using the flower stamps form the Number of Years stamp set, but you could always use your favourite DSP instead.

My inspiration for this card came from a German demonstrator Nadine Weiner.  I think, if you read her blog entry, she got her inspiration from someone else, but as I haven't studied German since I left school, I cant be too sure exactly what she wrote!

The addition of the corner rounder just gives the card a softer look.

The last picture is just a reminder not to forget to co-ordinate your envelope - it really does give it a professional finish!

More soon!

Just Peachy...

Today's fruit bowl offering is the lovely Peekaboo Peach, teamed with Pear Pizazz.  

The products used were the Fresh Fruit stamp set and the Fruit Stand DSP, teamed with the Peekaboo Peach ruched ribbon - plus the left over doily from yesterday's card!!

I like how versatile these cards are - you could add any sentiment to suit any occasion - great for what I call 'stock cards' - make up a few and add the sentiment when you need it!!

Well, thanks for dropping by.  I'll be back soon to share some more of my SU makes!

The Perfect Pear...

As promised, here is the second helping from my fruit bowl - again using the Fresh Fruit stamp set and the Fruit Stand DSP.

The inks used are Pear Pizazz, Flirty Flamingo and the leaves are Emerald Envy.  I've also added half a doily and some of the new ruched ribbon in Flirty Flamingo.

I'm loving using this set - I did say in my last post how they felt really summery - I think I spoke to soon!  I cant believe how much rain we have had in the last 2 days!  It's Ollie's birthday tomorrow so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that there may be a bit of sunshine for him!

If you'd like to know more about any of the products you've seen in any of my posts, please feel free to contact me at

Back soon!

Strawberry Fields Forever...

Hi there - remember me?!! It's been a while!  
Well, today's post is show casing something other than numbers!  I fancied a change and so here I am with the fabulous fruity offering that is the new Fresh Fruit stamp set peared (!) with the Fruit Stand DSP.

I've used the lovely Emerald Envy ruched ribbon and a little bit of doily to add the finishing touches.

I love how fresh these look, and they are perfect for the summer months - let's just hope we get some!

Colours are Real Red and Emerald Envy.

More fruity offerings soon!

This version of yesterday's card was made for my nephew whose birthday it was back in May.

The colour scheme for this one is Smokey Slate and Delightful Dijon.

I think he liked the card, but I think he liked the money inside it more!

I'm looking forward to some me time tonight as my delivery of brand new products is arriving later - early bed time for the children I think!

Will be back soon!
