Painted Seasons Pen Pot - Saleabration Sunday


Painted Seasons Pen Pot


Saleabration Sunday


Wow today is the very last day of Saleabration! We started Saleabration on January 3rd when the New Year had just begun and it was very definitely the middle of Winter and it's ending today on March 31st which also marks the first day of British Summer Time, our clocks went forward last night! So it seemed fitting to bring you a project with fresh summery colours today.



It's also Mothering Sunday in the UK today and I have had a lovely couple of hours in my craft room making this Pen/Pencil Pot and playing with the Painted Seasons Papers. They are beautiful. You gat a full pack of 12, 12 x 12 papers free with Saleabration.

There are lots of gorgeous designs in these papers and I pulled out this one as I wanted to pick out the Lemon lime Twist colour. They are so simple to make and perfect for all the paraphernalia on my craft desk.

Here is the You Tube Video showing how I made it

The Needlpoint Nook Designer Series Papers are so pretty with their hand stitched images. It ties all the card elements all together. The Old Olive linen thread and Share What You Love Artisan Pearls give it a finishing touch.


 This card was one of a number designed by Stampin' Up! for convention last November where we got to see and play with stamps coming in the Spring Summer Catalogue - I love getting my hands on brand new products and trying them out.

Hello Cupcake, Cupcake Box


Hello Cupcake,  Cupcake Box!


Wow, we have just a few days of Saleabration left so I pulled out one of my favourite's for this week's Saleabration post. Hello Cupcake. 


Cupcake party box decorated with a large cupcake stamp from Hello Cupcake and a Monogram for a party cake box



I have had this simple idea in my head for a while. Using the Hello Cupcake stamps with the Bakers Boxes. These boxes come ready made, easy to assemble with simple folding along the score lines. They are food safe, have a great acetate window on the top and are a good size.

Some simple decoration turns it into a personalised cupcake box. Just right for giving out at a party to take a cake home instead of having one large cake. We have THREE big birthdays in our house this year! So I think they will come in handy.

Here is my You Tube video showing how I made it. I hope you find it useful. Do give me a thumbs up if you do and don't forget to click the little bell for notification of future videos.

Happy Birthday, All That You Are . Stampers Showcase Blog Hop







Happy Birthday, All That You Are.


Stampers Showcase Blog Hop



I am so excited to be part of the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop and very honoured to be in amongst some very talented stampers from around the world! If you are starting here or continuing to hop, hello and welcome to my blog. 

For our second hop the theme is Birthdays and the perfect excuse to use the beautiful All that You Are stamps. I based my all day craft event that I ran earlier this month around this set and I just can't put it down.


Birthday Card, All That You Are Stamp set, heat embossed in white and coloured in Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive


This flower image is so beautiful and lends itself beautifully to all sorts of colouring mediums. 

I simply stamped and embossed it in White embossing powder onto Sahara Sand card. I then used my Lovely Lipstick ink pad and picked up the colour with a blender pen and coloured it in. I did the same for the leaves in Old Olive - very simple. Blender pens can certainly make your ink pads more versatile.

Birthday Card, All That You Are Stamp set, heat embossed in white and coloured in Lovely Lipstick and Old Olive


I added a layer of Whisper White behind the Sahara Sand layer before adhering to the Sahara Sand card base. The Happy Birthday sentiment is stamped in Lovely Lipstick onto a square of Whisper White and I added some of the Lovely Lipstick Ribbon to finish it off.


Inside of birthday card, hand stamped with flower from the All That You Are stamps from Stampin' Up! and matching envelope

I stamped the same flower image in Memento Black off the side of the Whisper White layer inside before glueing into place and stamped the envelope to match. I always like to stamp my envelopes. It gives a nice finishing touch and is lovely to receive.
I have some other projects featuring this stamps set. You can see them here, and here.
I cant wait to see what all the other people taking part in the hop have come up with for this theme. There are some super talented people taking part so grab a cuppa and hop around for some fabulous inspiration.
