Mini Tic Tac Boxes And Onstage Swaps!

I was looking for something to package into a swap for our Stampin' Up Onstage demonstrator event and these mini Tic Tac boxes are so sweet. I love anything mini!

I matched up the card colours with the tic tac boxes. I used Balmy Blue, Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral and Pumpkin Pie.


Here is my You Tube Tutorial showing how I made them.

You can see all the lovely swaps I received at Onstage too!

I created the little labels using the Tabs For Everything stamp set and the 3/4 inch circle punch. Both of these are on the retiring list to make way for new items. Hop over to my shop to buy now if you'd like these as they are whilst stocks last.

I didn't swap all of my swaps this time, as I was lucky enough to be selected as a volunteer at registration at the event 😀

Look at all those gorgeous convention bags waiting to be given out, full of goodies!

I did manage to swap a lot of my boxes and got some gorgeous swaps in return. You can see those in the You Tube video!

The inspiration for my boxes came from the Paper Pixie who posted a You Tube video showing how to make them last year. You can see that here and I have also added the link to the video description box. Do check her out.

We had an amazing time at Onstage! Just one of the perks of being a demonstrator. We got a copy of the new catalogue that is coming out in June too! Do check out all the products that are retiring to make way for new as they are only whilst stocks last. You can see them here under Last Chance Products.


The new Spring Summer catalogue is still in full swing and is full of beautiful, fresh, spring colours and is stuffed full of everything you need for your papercrafting.  Do let me know if you would like a copy wont you!

I am of course, very grateful if you choose me to be your demonstrator and you shop with me. If you shop with me online, don't forget to use the hostess code if your order is between £20 - £150 for a small gift from me.

Picture Perfect Birthday Card


Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #41





 I love a sketch. They make a great starting point for creating a card so I was very happy to see this week was sketch challenge for the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #041


 Birthday card for the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #041


I love the All My Love Designer Series Papers so much and this sketch gave me the perfect chance to use them. 


 Birthday card for the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #041

I picked out the colours in the papers and used the matching card for the card base, and layers. Flirty Flamingo, Lovely Lipstick and Soft Seafoam. I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Birthday Party stamp set in Lovely Lipstick. I just love how Stampin' Up make it so easy with matching card, ink, papers and embellishments. I added a few enamel dots in Lovely Lipstick to finish it off.


Birthday card for the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #041


I stamped the inside of the card in Lovely Lipstick, using the same stamp set.I love this mix of fonts.

I hope you like the card, such a quick and easy one to put together. You can see what all the rest of the talented Design Team came up with for this challenge over at the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #041 here

I have made some other projects using these gorgeous papers. You can see them here, and here

Floral Essence Stampin Up! - New Product Sneak Peek!

Floral Essence


New Product Sneak Peek!


I have just come home from an amazing weekend away at Onstage, our biannual Stampin Up demonstrator convention. Our brand new upcoming Annual catalogue was revealed along with all the products including this gorgeous stamp set which I was lucky enough to bring home with me! 

Floral Essence  Card- New Product Stampin Up


There are lots of flower images in this set including this one and I and couldn't wait to have a play. 

How I Made It

I chose Old Olive as my card base with a layer of Blackberry Bliss card. I stamped the image in versamark and heat embossed in white onto watercolour paper. I used my Aqua Painter to pick up the colour from my Blackberry Bliss ink pad to water colour. the flowers.  I added some of the leaves in the same way and used Old Olive ink.


Floral Essence  Card- New Product Stampin Up

I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive onto Whisper White and layered it onto Blackberry Bliss card. The 3/8 " Linen Magnolia Lane Ribbon is also a brand new one coming up in the new catalogue too! 


Floral Essence  Card- New Product Stampin Up


I have stamped another flower inside in Blackberry Bliss. They are I believe anemone's. This stamp set is part of a punch/stamp set bundle and also a suite comprising of some beautiful papers and ribbon too.


Floral Essence sneak peek


The three petal image has a matching punch with which you can layer to make beautiful flowers and the three leafed sprig in the stamp set matches our existing leaf punch!  So useful, I am going to get a lot of use out of it!  It will be available to customers to buy at the beginning of June when the catalogue launches.

I hope you enjoy this sneak peek! We made another card with this set whilst we were at Onstage so watch out for that in an upcoming post.


The new Spring Summer catalogue is in full swing and is full of beautiful, fresh, spring colours and is stuffed full of everything you need for your papercrafting.  Do let me know if you would like a copy wont you!

I am of course, very grateful if you choose me to be your demonstrator and you shop with me. If you shop with me online, don't forget to use the hostess code if your order is between £20 - £150 for a small gift from me.

I added the daisy using Flirty Flamingo card using the Daisy Punch to the box top and finished it off with a Gold Faceted Gem as a nod to the beautiful pink and gold candle tin inside.
