Hi everyone

I hope you're all well. 

Can you believe it's week 2 of the design team already? It's flew over. I'm really enjoying challenging myself.

For the note book cover:

Island Indigo card measuring 9 7/16 x 2 15/16" line up and fold over the top of the note book and adhere.

Mats for front of cover and notepad:

Early Espresso card x 2 measuring 8 1/4" x 2 3/4" 
Hand stamped DSP layer x  measuring 8 1/8" x 2 5/8"

Pocket for inside:

Early Espresso card measuring 3" x 2 1/2" score on 3 sides at 1/4"

Calendar mat:

Early Espresso card measuring 3" x 2 3/4"

Tear Ticket punch

Quick and easy customer thankyou gifts


As you know SAB has started again. I love this time of year!

I have been sending out the new Spring/ Summer and Sale A Bration catalogues out to my customers and I wanted to include a handmade card as well as a little sweet treat. The gift box holds 2 Greens and Blacks mini chocolates.

So this is what I have come up with and I just love how dinky and cute they are. 

I used the new Sweet Soiree DSP for the treat boxes and the ribbon you can get FREE during Sale a Bration. For the cards I've also used a stamp set called Heartfelt Blooms that you can choose as one of your FREEBIES during this time. 

I kept the card really simple as I wanted the stamp set to speak for itself. I only used one other colour for each card (along with Whisper White) just to show that anyone can make beautiful cards with not a lot of products to use.

Instructions on how to make these projects are listed below:

Thank you cards- using colour of your choice

Card base measuring 11 3/4" x 4 1/8" score on the long side at 5 7/8" and fold and burnish

2 pieces of Whisper White card measuring 5 1/2" x 3 7/8" one to stamp on and the other as a mat for the inside of the card.

Ink pad (of your choice)

Everyday label punch (for the sentiment)

Adhesives of your choice.

Sweet gift box

Piece of card or DSP measuring 6 1/2" x 4"
score on the long side at 1/2", 1" and 3 1/2", score on the long side at 1/2", 3", 3 1/2" and 6"
cut away as shown in template below. I used a 1" circle punch for the thumb hole and a corner rounder for the flap.

add adhesive to the end tab and assemble as you would any box.

I used the shimmer ribbon trio pack from  Sale A Bration catalogue to wrap around and tie the bow.

I really hope my customers enjoy and like their little gifts and that you do too. If you would like to receive any of the current catalogues please drop me a message and I will get one out to you.

There will be a tutorial on Youtube for any of you that would like to watch it.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting.

Happy Crafters Design Team week 1

Hi guys

I hope you're all well.

I'm excited to share with you my news. I was chosen this month to take part in a design team put together by my upline, Ann Melvin who is positivelypapercraft.co.uk.

Ann is such a great team leader and an inspiration to us all. I am so honoured to take part in this challenge.

The stamp set this month is Happiest of Days, which I'll admit I overlooked in the catalogue. It's such a beautiful stamp set.

So for my 1st project I decided to keep it really simple to showcase how versatile it is. I myself struggle to do 'simple' cards as I always feel the need to add more haha. 

I really love how this turned out and I hope you do too. 

To make this card I used:

Berry Burst cardstock measuring 11 3/4" x 4 1/8" scored on the long side at 5 7/8" and fold to create the card base.
Whisper White cardstock measuring 5 1/2" x 3 7/8" x 2. Emboss one of these with the Brick wall embossing folder to use on the front of the card and keep the other for the inside.
Berry Burst ink pad
Lemon Lime Twist ink pad
Blender pen
Tutti Frutti adhesive backed sequins
Berry Burst 3/8"metallic edge ribbon
Layering Ovals thinlets

I really hope you like this card as much as I do and that you will tune in next week to see my next project.

Thanks for looking and happy crafting.

I really love how you can take something so little and turn it into something beautiful with the right packaging.

I have used the Merry Music DSP, foil snowflakes, gold foil, black shimmer ribbon and the gold faceted gems...all of which are available from Stampin Up.

I have done a video tutorial showing you how I made this project...please find the link below.
