Picture Perfect Birthday Treat Bags! Celebrate The Good Stuff!

How cute are these treat bags made with the Picture Perfect Party DSP!


Mini Treat Bagd Stampin Up

I absolutely love the colours in these papers! Bermuda Bay, Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach and Lemon Lime Twist. The paper stack has 48 double sided sheets. Side A has photographic images and side B has the most gorgeous coordinating patterns. They are just perfect for holding gift cards (envelopes are so boring aren't they), gifts, chocolate or for party bags.

Here is the You Tube video showing how I made them.



I hope you like the video. please give me a thumbs up if you do and subscribe.

I held my monthly team meeting last night for those that are local. I have a growing team and it's a great opportunity to connect, share inspiration and ideas. I like to reward my team too for reaching their goals and for anniversaries. I love my team, we have a lot of fun. We had an anniversary to celebrate last night so I made one of these treat bags to hold some goodies inside for her. We then went on to make the treat bags as the evening's make n take. 

Here they all are

Sale-a-bration Sunday I You Are Simply Amazing !


 Woohoo! It's time for Sale-a-bration Sunday and this week I am using the Amazing You stamp set.

  Saleabration  items are FREE with a £45 order in my online shop here . 

It runs for 12 weeks until March 31st which takes it right up to British Summer Time on March 25th marked by the clocks going forward bringing in the lighter evenings. I am SO looking forward to that but in the mean time we can craft the winter away. Win/Win!



Every Sunday I will be bringing you a new project from Saleabration as we craft our way into
Spring!


 The Amazing You stamp set has got to be one of my favourites!


Amazing You card


I love the flower so much! It is perfect for colouring in with the Stampin Blends alcohol markers.



Flower from Amazing You stamp set with Clear Faceted Gem


I have cut the flowers out and the middle flowers to to give dimension to the card, added a Faceted Gem to the centre of each and a little heat embossing in Silver to make it a little more special.

Here is my You Tube tutorial for this card.




I really hope you like the video, please give me a thumbs up and subscribe if you do.

Fussy cut flowers coloured with Blends from Amazing You stamps Stampin Up

There was a little cutting out but it was easy, I promise.


The sentiments in this set are perfect for any type of congratulations/celebration card.


Lets Celebrate. Inside card. Amazing You from Stampin Up!



I have used Pool Party card stock for my base. A4 cut in half at 14.8 cm and scored at 10.5 cm.
The Very Vanilla panel is 14. 3 cm x 10 cm.

I can see that I will be using this set a lot and it is beautiful with or without colour, though that Dog Rose lends itself to colouring with all sorts of medium. I have a lot of ideas for it whirling around in my head.


All the products I have used on my card are shown below with clickable links. Come shopping with me online and receive a hand made card and a little gift to say thank you.

Cute Picture Perfect Party Boxes for the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge 010!


 This week for the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge #010 we have a Colour Challenge.


Aren't they gorgeous!
Colour makes me so happy, and these colours remind me of the Picture Perfect Party Suite from Stampin' Up!  They shout Birthday Party to me. 😀




I took it as inspiration and decided to make some cute little gift boxes, just changing the colours to fit the challenge . They are so simple to make using the Envelope Punch Board.


Picture Perfect Party stamps Stampin' Up!

They are so cute and quick to make too.

Hand made box with Envelope Punch board

I LOVE these mini binder clips. They are part of the Picture Perfect Party Suite and come in Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Silver and Bermuda bay. To keep with the colour challenge I have used Bermuda Bay and Silver.





Here is the You Tube Video of how I made them





 If you enjoyed the video, please let me know, give me a thumbs up and subscribe.

Meaurements: Card stock 6"x6"
Line edge up at 1.5", punch and score, line up at 4", punch and score.
Continue to then line up your score line at the indicator on all 3 remaining sides.

DSP ( I have used the Bermuda Bay from the Picture Perfect Birthday DSP)
 Panels measure: 2 1/8" x 1 5/8" (x2)
1 1/2 " x 1 5/8" (x2)

I have made a few of them now, so fun to do. I have a few birthdays coming up so will definitely come in handy for those small gifts. I think they would be perfect in different colour ways for party or wedding favours

See what the rest of the talented Design Team on the Inspire Create Stamping Challenge have come up with this time here. Its great to see all the different projects that are made and also all the entries into the challenge too.It is open to everyone and is lots of fun to take part.

Perfect to rustle up a card quickly. I have used the Beautiful Day stamps. Isn't this butterfly gorgeous!

I stamped him once in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the card front and again onto a scrap of Whisper White. I coloured him in using the Blends- Stampin' Up!'s new alcohol markers.
I have used Bermuda Bay dark and light and Pool Party dark and light. After cutting him out and inking around his edges I attached a couple of the mini dimensionals to his middle only and fixed him to the card.

Thoughtful Thanks. Thank you.

Can you see that he is slightly sparkly? I have coloured his wings with clear of Wink Of Stella. I added a couple of the new self adhesive sequins and stamped Thank You from Thankful Thoughts stamp set. Don't forget to stamp your envelope too.


I stamped Thank you inside too and added another butterfly stamped off the edge.
