Morning!! What a great sentiment, it's from the Enjoy Life photopolymer stamps set which I've teamed with some paper from the Best Route DSP.  Sometimes all a card needs is a great sentiment on some well design paper...... I think this design would be fantastic for someone who was new to card making. Thanks for stopping by today,  Rebecca x

One sheet wonder

One sheet wonder
Hello!!! Here's something different that I wanted to show you- have you ever heard of a one sheet wonder? The idea with a one sheet wonder is to use a single sheet of 12x12 DSP for as many cards as possible and here's one I had a go at. This was a single sheet of paper from the pretty  Painted Seasons DSP  (a free item with a £45 spend during sale-a-bration). Stampin' Up! 12x12 DSP is nearly always double sided which gives you twice the options. Here I've cut the paper in different shapes and sizes and I've also done some fussy cutting too. Of course I've mixed in my own supplies of stamps, dies etc but I was amazed how a single piece of paper went..... most SU 12x12 sheets cost about 85p each, which really is quite a bargain I think!!! Which of these is your favourite card? Rebecca x

3D butterfly

3D butterfly
How pretty is this butterfly? I've fussy-cut several butterflies from the Botanical Butterfly DSP , which is free with a £45 spend during sale-a-bration!!! I've stuck them back to back so that the butterfly is actually 3Dand it's wings can open out- I don't think the photo really shows this affect. The sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set (photopolymer)- I think it's very subtle how the y from the "you" links into the word below! Thanks for stopping by today,  Rebecca x

You can see the full set of images available in the Crafting Forever stamp set if you full the link (click on the product name) or I've also put a copy at the bottom this post.  have made quite a few things like note books etc. using the images, they're also great for making fellow carmakers cards and gifts.

Sweet Wishes

Sweet Wishes
Hello! How yummy is this sweet card? It's another one where I've cut the elements from the How Sweet It Is DSP. I guess you know by that I love fussy cutting, I bet you also know how much of a fan I am of the Stampin' Up! scissor snips - they are very sharp and cut right to the very tip!! Other than a sharp pair of scissors they best way of making fussy cutting a dream is to remember to move the paper more than the scissors.  The only part of this card that isn't from the DSP pack is stamped sentiment- very easy. Thanks for stopping by today,  Rebecca x Here's a link to the  new catalogues  and the  sale-a-bration items.  What is your favourite item from the Spring catalogue and the Sale-a-bration items!!!

Painted Seasons- NEW Sale-a-bration item

Painted Seasons- NEW Sale-a-bration item
Hello,  I just wanted to share this gorgeous DSP with you, it is part of the Painted Seasons FREE Sale-a-bration bundle, there is also a stamp set included with the DSP but here I've just used other catalogue items. I love Stamping' Up! DSP (designer series papers) and how they often don't need much more with them- on both of these examples I've just add a sentiment. It means you can rattle off loads of super-quick, yet stylish cards really quickly. Let me know if you'd like to learn how you could earn this set of paper and the matching stamp set for FREE!

Happy Birthday Confetti

Happy Birthday Confetti
Hello! Here's a snazzy birthday card I found a phot of from a while back and I don't think I actually shared it with you. It uses some of my favourite colours I love ( Berry Burst , Lemon-lime twist , Costal Cabana, Bermuda Bay and Tranquil Tide ) Three of these colours are also the 2017-19 in-colours and will be retiring VERY soon, so if you love them as much as me you might want to stock up on ink and card!!! I've used the large  Happy Birthday die which I've cut part along with the Picture Perfect photopolymer stamp set (A bargain at £16 for such a versatile set). Thanks for stopping by today!! Rebecca

Hi,  here's a simple card that makes the most of the Botanical Butterfly DSP (which is FREE during SAle-a-bration).   With paper this pretty all you really need is a sentiment. This sentient is from the Well Said bundle which contains so many sentiments in stamp and die form- a true allrounder for your craft room.  Have you spotted the gorgeous die cut  Stitched rectangle too? I'm using these on EVERYTHING at the moment.......

FREE Country Floral Embossing Folder

FREE Country Floral Embossing Folder
Good afternoon,  How gorgeous is this embossing folder? It is the Country Floral Dynamic Textured embossing folder. It is very detailed and looks beautiful as the main focus of a card or as a detailed background. In these two examples I've kept one very simple and in the other I've added some ink. I also want to try adding ink to the folder before embossing, colouring the flowers with pens or watercolour and maybe embossing some other materials like foil....... The BEST thing about this particular embossing folder is that you can have it for FREE with a £45 spend during the SU Sale-a-bration- while stocks are available and if I"m honest I feel this one could sell out!! Thanks for stopping by,  Rebecca x

Sweets Treats

Sweets Treats
Good Morning! Today I wanted to show you some treat holders I made for the people in my department. I cut sheets of the 12x12 How Sweet it is DSP  into 4 6x6 pieces, next I scored a 5mm line along one edge, folded it and stuck it to the opposite side to create a tube shape. Next I glue the top of the tube closed- this would become the bottom. Finally I added my chocolate treats and then put glue along the top of the tube, but to create the shape I squeezed the tube so that the edge at the top is actually at a 90 degree angle to the bottom. (to clarify the side seem on the bottom is at the edge, but at the top the seem is actually in the middle of the back......maybe I should have taken more photos or a video!) I stapled on the tag created using the  Tailored Tag punc h and some of the Sale-a-bration FREE ribbon. REALLY quick and simple and each 12x12 sheet of paper makes 4 treat holders, would be great for a wedding, baby shower, Easter hunt etc. All the products I
