Beautiful Baubles Swing Card

Deck The Halls!


Beautiful Baubles Swing Aperture Card. Stampin' Up


I am loving the Beautiful Baubles stamps and dies bundle this season and to make a "stepped up" card they make easy work of it.


Beautiful Baubles bundle Stampin' Up!


The baubles were cut out from Copper Foil Card using one of the bauble dies and then attached to the top of the aperture with copper thread to allow it to swing.

I designed this card for my Christmas Stamp a Stack event last month


Merry Merlot, Copper Reversible Ribbon, Stampin Up


It seems to be all about Copper for me at the moment, I love the reversible Merry Merlot and Copper Ribbon so it was easy to decide in the colours for this card.


Here are the products used to make the card with clickable links to my online shop

It's A Small World - It Really Is!

 We were trying to take a selfie of us on It's A Small World and a lovely lady next in the queue offered to take it for us. You would never believe it but she turned out to also be a Stampin Up Demonstrator too! Out here with her family before heading to Onstage later in the week! How amazing is that. I now have a new friend from Colorado. It really is a Small World after all!



Had to have a selfie with Elizabeth Wright πŸ’—

The Magic Kingdom Fireworks Happily Ever After


To round off the day, we got a great vantage point on the veranda of the restaurant  to watch the Happily Ever After fireworks that were absolutely amazing and as usual brought a tear to my eye. They really are something else.

Such a long, but amazing day! We had a great touring plan - A must to avoid long queues in the heat and we did so much more than I can show you here without boring you. It was very late by the time we got back to the Condo and time for bed, an early start again tomorrow as we head over to register for Onstage and then spend the day at Animal Kingdom.

This trip was absolutely amazing and I would never had the opportunity had I not joined Stampin' Up! There are so many fun events and opportunities and I have made so many friends. If you think you would like to be part of this amazing company too, do get in touch. I would love to have you on my team. There really is something for everyone! 

Do join me tomorrow for Part 3 of our trip before Onstage Convention

Onstage Florida Trip. Part 1.

Celebrating 30 Years of Stampin' Up!

 Florida, Celebrations and Onstage! Part 1.


Anyone who know me, knows that our family are unashamed Disney addicts so it was with great excitement when it was announced that Stampin' Up's Live Onstage Convention this year was to be held in Florida!  Convention is open to all demonstrators and is a real perk with Onstage events going on both locally and internationally. We are lucky enough to stay in a family members Condo when we go out for a holiday and it was going to be perfect for this trip!  Some of my demonstrator friends were going too! - And so the planning began.  

So, this post is all about the trip, the fun and the convention. I promise not to bore you with lots of pictures of Walt Disney World but a few may creep in.  I hope you enjoy seeing what we got up to on our trip and as this is the first year Stampin' Up!  have had no spoiler policy over new product, I can share lots of what goes on at convention too!

I am so happy to have shared this trip with these lovely ladies. We all booked onto the same flight out and met at the airport the evening before. A whole week ahead of us in Florida.

Some flight pics. There was another of our team on the flight too and more coming out on following flights too.  It was dark by the time we landed, cleared immigration and collected our luggage and picked up the car.

Day 1 - The sun was shining and it was around 80 degrees. How gorgeous is that sky!



We had three full days before convention began and today was going to be a shopping day! We were up early due to the time difference and went out for an American breakfast at Denny's.

The choice of cheesecakes are HUGE!

We had a great first day shopping, exploring and acclimatising. We had another two days before Convention and plans to spend them at Walt Disney World at The Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. 



This trip was absolutely amazing and I would never had the opportunity had I not joined Stampin' Up! There are so many fun events and opportunities and I have made so many friends. If you think you would like to be part of this amazing company too, do get in touch. I would love to have you on my team. There really is something for everyone!

Coffee And Cards - Lots Of Happy!

Coffee And Cards - Lots Of Happy!



We have the most beautiful card kits in the Stampin' Up! catalogues so I brought one along for Coffee And Cards this week. 


Lots of Happy Card Kit, Stampin Up, Coffee and Cards


After having the most amazing time at Stampin' Up'!s  Onstage Convention in Orlando last week I landed back in the UK on Monday looking forward to Coffee and Cards on Tuesday morning. I love spending time crafting with these ladies and was able to share my swaps and all about the trip. - more to come about that.


Lots of Happy Card Kit, Stampin Up, Coffee and Cards


The all inclusive kits are just that.

Lots of Happy Card Kit, Stampin Up,


It has all the items you need, including the stamps. It even includes the acrylic block, ink and adhesive foam pads too. This one has Water Colour Pencils and Lemon lime Twist Ombre Ribbon too. Perfect for on the go crafting or new stampers who maybe haven't got all they need yet.



Lots of Happy Card Kit, Stampin Up,




You can see a short clip here to get a closer look.



This one is the Lots Of Happy Kit and its so pretty. It makes 20 cards for lots of occasions. I love to keep one handy so that I can rustle up a pretty hand made card easily. The bonus is, that you can also buy a refill of all of the consumables making it very reasonable indeed. Perfect for you or even for a Christmas gift. They come in a pretty box too!

Here is the kit we used to make the cards and also the refill kit too, with clickable links straight to my online shop.




I have so much to share with you from Onstage. Now the jet lag has subsided I will be posting all about the event and all the lovely swaps I received, so do check back in soon.

Christmas Table Favours - Inspire Create Challenge #031

Christmas Table Favours


Inspire Create Challenge #031



Christmas Table Favours Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #31


It's time for another Inspire Create Stamping Challenge, and this time we have a colour challenge!



Very Christmassy don't you think? I thought so and decided to make some Christmas table/Party favours using the Clear Tiny Treat Boxes.

Christmas Table Favours Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #31

I used the gorgeous, Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper to go around the box. The colours are perfect as they match the challenge. This piece has Shaded Spruce, Sahara Sand and Copper.  I cut a 2 inch strip and wrapped it around the box. creasing against the corners as I went and secured it at the side with tear n tape. 


Christmas Table Favours Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #31

I have cut a 1 3/4 inch circle from Whisper White card using the circle punch and added some simple stamping in Merry Merlot and Shaded Spruce inks, using the Feathers And Frost stamp set. The sprigs are punched out of Copper Foiled paper and Shaded Spruce card and sandwiched between using Dimensionals.


Christmas Table Favours Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #31


I have added some of the gorgeous reversible Merry Merlot/Copper Ribbon to make it look beautiful. Tying it around the side to cover the seam of the DSP.


Christmas Table Favours Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #31

These are very simple and easy to make. Filled with chocolates or sweets or even a small gift, these would make the perfect favour to go on your Christmas table or at a party.

Hop over to the Inspire Create Stamping Challenges here and see what the rest of the talented Design Team have come up here. You can see all the other entries and perhaps join along too. We would love to have you.




I hope you like it. Here are the products I have used with clickable links to my online shop.
