PTI Nature Challenge

Where is this month going? My term as January's feature stamper over on A Passion for Papertrey is almost coming to an end :( This is my last challenge submission, as a feature stamper (I'll still be entering as often as I can) the current challenge is to create a card or project with a nature element to it, this is what I made ...

Stamps: Everyday Button Bits, Giga Guidelines
Cardstock: Plum Pudding, Sweetblush, Dark Chocolate

DSP: Guidelines
Mediums: Old Olive, Lavender Lace (SU), Versomark
Embellishments: Plum pudding ½”luxe satin ribbon (a la Monica), SquareBrad (Craftwork), Buttons from stash. Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Nestabilities (Labels 1).

It was my first easel card (although I have made several this month, this one was made right at the beginning of the month in readiness for this challenge) I can tell you I'm hooked, well and truly, I can't believe how easy they are, and they look stunning, or at least this one does. If I can bear to part with it, I'm going to save this one until April for my Mum's birthday, I just know she'll love it, and purple is her favourite colour.

I used a piece of Plum Pudding cardstock for the bottom/stand.

For the top, I cut dark 3-3/4 x 3-3/4 dark chocolate and 3-5/8 x3-5/8 sweetblush, I stamped giga guidelines randomly in clear versomark over the sweetblush. I used the the flower stems from 'Everyday Button Bits', its stamped in Old Olive on Whisper White. I pulled out my Nestabilities (labels 1) and measured out two of them, cut out a smaller nestie around my flowers, and another one size larger in plum pudding cardstock.

I then sewed the button holes of colour co-ordintated buttons and adhered them to the flower stems and adhered both to my piece of sweetblush.

For the bottom/stand, I measured a piece of guidelines designer paper to leave a few mm around the edge and adhered to the base. I then cut another piece of cardstock in dark chocolate for a mat and layered a piece of sweetblush over for my sentiment.

The ribbon was tied 'a la Monica', I found the centre of the top of the sentiment layer and pierced a hole for the brad on the ribbon. I attached the ribbon via the brad and tidied up the ends. I stamped the sentiment in Lavender Lace, set the card straight and that was it, beautiful ...

Once again I've really enjoyed creating this project for you as a feature stamper for A Passion for Papertrey, I hope you like it - please leave me some feedback - let me know what you think.

While I'm at it, Why don't you join in? All you need to do is use at least one PTI product, you could use a stamp, cardstock, papers or a piece of ribbon, please do come and join us

See you soon

Thank You Card & Gift in One.


I had to make a thank you card this week along with a small thank you gift so I thought I'd combine the two using one of Jenny Moors’ classes.


I had so much fun making this little beauty, which is really just an easel card on top of a matchbox – I can’t wait to start playing again to make some more …

Stamps – Circle of Friends, Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock – Kraft, Basic Grey, Sage Shadow, Barely Banana, Sahara Sand
DSP – Nouveau Chic
Mediums – Night of Navy
Embellishments – Filigree Designer Brads, Vintage brads, Basic Grey 3/8” taffeta ribbon.
Tools – Eyelet border, Circle Scallop, 1-1/4”, 1-1/8”, 1” circle punches, Stamp-a-ma-jig.


This is the first time I’ve opened up the package of Nouveau Chic Designer Paper, I thought it was a bit ‘dark’, but now that I have I can see so many possibilities for it …


I’ve filled the drawer up with chocolate (what else?) but you could make up little matching notecards or a small memo block/post it pad.

Come back tomorrow I’ve another Easel card to show you, its actually the first one I made, right back at the beginning of the month but haven’t been able to show you yet, I can’t wait to show you – Its my favourite …

Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop.

Its time to hop ... where did you start? Have you come from Jo's blog or have you started here? I'm really excited about this event, each one of us on the hop have created some fantastic projects using the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and shared them on our blogs, as long as we all have our links working it should work so that you read all the way to the bottom of my post and I show you the link to the next blog, you follow that and that blogger leads you to the next blog and so on, eventually you'll come back to me. There are 15 of us in this loop (there are two loops running today).

For those that have joined me from Jo's blog, Welcome, I really do hope that you are enjoying your tour of the very talented people that have posted projects and ideas for you to try using your Sale-A-Bration stamp sets!

Don't forget all the Sale-A-Bration sets are available for a limited time only and each one is free with every £45 you spend in the Stampin' Up! catalogue.

I'm really looking forward to spending a few hours today blog hopping myself!!
So my two projects, both using Good Neighbours

First, a double scrapbook page using Good Neighbors a set comprising 3 houses, 3 roofs, 3 trees and a cloud ...

Cardstock: Ruby Red, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Sahara Sand
DSP: Rose Red Designer Series Paper, Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Good Neighbours (SAB), Big Deal Alphabet
Mediums: Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Really Rust

Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Scallop Edge punch, Paper piercer, Stamp-a-ma-jig.

It was a great excuse to use every stamp in the box! And of course some of my favourite stash, I seriously love those flower fusion felt flowers, they are so easy to work with, and that filigree designer brad {swoon} I had to force myself to add it to the page - I like to sit and stroke them - they are gorgeous!! I stamped the houses using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the roofs and trees - This piece of kit is a MUST HAVE once you own it you'll wonder what you ever did without it.

And for my second project, a reasonably quick and simple card ...

Cardstock: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Sahara Sand
Stamps: Good Neighbours (SAB)
Mediums: Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Really Rust, Bordering Blue
Embellishments: 1" Double Stitched Chocolate Chip & 5/8" Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, Linen thread, Latte Design Button.

Again I've used stash that I've been hording, I love that double stitched ribbon and try to save it for special occasions - what am I like!!

So who do you visit next? I'm going to pass you onto the very talented Elizabeth (Stash Fairy), I know you are going to love the projects she has designed for you!
Thank you so much for joining us on our blog hop, I really do hope that every visitor today leaves me a comment, it would be great to hear what you think about the hop and what we've all created with the same stamp sets ... I promise where possible I'll be back to visit you ...

PTI Notebook

As some of you know I was chosen as feature stamper over on A Passion for Papertrey for January and one of the responsibilities of feature stamper is to take part in the challenges. Well the first challenge has been set for 2010 and the challenge is to create a card or project with an embossed image, this is what I made ...

Stamps: Giga Guidelines, Take Note Cardstock: Dark Chocolate, Berry Sorbet
DSP: Bitty Dots, Everyday Blessings
Mediums: Staz-on, Chocolate Chip (SU), Embossing Stamp pad
Embellishments: Aqua Mist button, Berry Sorbet ½" luxe satin ribbon
Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Heat gun, Clear embossing power.

I really love making these notebooks, I not made one yet that I've really not wanted to give away ...

For this one I started out with a piece of dark chocolate cardstock, measured 21.5cm x 20.5cm scored at 7cm, 7.5cm and 14.5cm (along the 21.5cm edge). I then use a small plate to mark a nice curve for the inside pocket and cut. Nichol Heady has a template here but you might have to fiddle to get the measurements to fit.

For the front cover, I stamped one of the images from giga guidelines with versamark ink onto berry sorbet, and then sprinkled liberly with clear embossing powder. Heat set with a heat gun. I then sponged chocolate chip ink in small circular movements over the image (remembering to wipe the images clean). This really makes the images pop! I then cut another piece of berry sorbet 21cm x 6.6cm for the mat layer on the front cover, and stuck this down. I cut my embossed cardstock to size along with some bitty dots designer paper and adhered those to my mat layer. I cut a piece of Everyday Blessings to size and adhered that into place.

I inked up 'notes' from the 'Take Notes' stamp set with chocolate chip and stamped my image down the side for added interest.

The ribbon was tied 'a la Monica' but instead of using a brad I sewed on an Aqua Mist button.

Inside the notebook I decorated the pocket with the left overs/scraps from the front cover, to add interest I stamped a paperclip and a pointing finger, then all I had left to do was adhere the pad to the notebook.

I really enjoyed my first project as feature stamper, I hope you like it - please leave me some feedback - let me know what you think.

While I'm at it, Why don't you join in? All you need to do is use at least one PTI product, you could use a stamp, cardstock, papers or a piece of ribbon, so why not come and join us

See you soon

A Layout!.

I know it doesn't happen very often, but I've actually created a layout!!

One of my resolutions this year was to get scrappin again, one of the ways I knew I'd do this was to follow the weekly challenges over on UKS. This week was set by BeckyG1, and as it was the first challenge of the year she kept it nice and simple - She chose a Shimelle sketch from SI for us to work from, asked us to use celebration photo(s) and to include ribbon. Here's mine

Not the best photo I'm afraid (I'll upload a better one tomorrow)

Stamps: Celebrate from Wonderful Words
Pink Passion, Black CoreColor from Coredinations
DSP: Pink Slice (Colour Theory)
ediums- Pink Passion
Embellishments: Large brad from hodgepodge hardware

Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Mat pack & Paper-piercing tool, stamp-a-ma-jig.

So I've collected full points for my UKS team, Rockin Ribbon Raiders:

Used the sketch - 10 points
used celebration photos - 10 points
used ribbon - 10 points
layout - 10 points

Also managed to make a few cards with my new Medallion stamp, will post those tomorrow

Good Neighbors - Sale-A-Bration.

One of the perks of being a demonstrator for Stampin Up is being able to get our hands on the stamps before everyone else, I was a little late ordering and decided to wait and actually earn my free sets*! well the wait nearly killed me, watching all my fellow demos using their sets early ...

Well my first free set is finally here, despite the snow! - Good Neighbors

I chose good neighbors because, well I don't know why, I just loved it and could see a use for it straight away, although I can see a use for all the Sale-A-Bration sets - so much so I can't wait to place my next order ...

My first card made with Good Neighbors is an easel card, its not my first easel card (you'll see that later in the month) but I'm hooked, they are sooo easy to make but look complicated.

I followed the tutorial I found on ILWS written by Melanie Reid.

I also made this card with the colour inspiration challenge in mind over on Kristina's blog,, it was great to see that she had posted a 'one off' colour challenge. Anyway here's the card

And the colours Kristina gave us to play with:

I had to substitute some of the colours as they are not available in the UK ...

Stamps: Good Neighbors, 'New' Sentiment from Seasonal Wishes, 'home' from stash

Cardstock: Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, More Mustard
DSP: Pink Flamingo
Mediums: Ruby Red, More Mustard, Bashful Blue, Cameo Coral, So Saffron markers, Versomark

Embellishments: Bashful Blue 1/2" striped grosgrain, More mustard 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, bashful blue soft subtles brads.

Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Large Oval and Scallop Oval Punches, Paper piercer, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Nestabilities (standard circles large).

So what do you think?

I'm off to play some more with the other goodies that the lovely UPS man brought yesterday, I can hear that Medallion calling ...

* Receive a free Sale-A-Bration stamp set for every £45 purchase you make from the current Idea Book & Catalogue, there are four fantastic sets to choose from.

The Sale-A-Bration promotion is running 30 December - 28th February 2010, so you have plenty of time to collect all four!

ILWS January Cup Challenge - Card 4.

ILWS last Challenge on Saturday night was set by Karin, it was a combination challenge, the first part was 'masking' to make something that had some kind of masking element to it, and the second part was to 'recycle' a regular a household item into it.

I had no problem with the first part of the challenge, I used Stampin Up's 'All in the Family' stamp set which I've recently borrowed from a fellow demo, Deborah for another project.

Stamps: All in the Family
Broacade Blue, Whisper White
DSP: Bashful Blue
ediums- Brocade blue, bordering blue, ballet blue, creamy caramel, close to cocoa, basic black
Embellishments: Vintage brads, bashful blue 1/2" striped grosgrain grosgrain ribbon

Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Mat pack & Paper-piercing tool, stamp-a-ma-jig, Nestabilities.

When I was putting the card together I completely forgot to add my 'recycled' item!!

The 'All in the family' set are ideal for masking. I started by stamping the cat and the dog on my cardstock, I then stamped them again on a post-it, cut out the image from the post-it note, masked my image (covered) and continued stamping, this time with the little boy and girl. Again once on my cardstock and on a post-it note, cut out the image on the post-it note, masked my image and continued stamping .... Once you've finished stamping you take off the post-it notes and colour.

I hope you liked my cards, I enjoyed the challenge evening and look forward to the next one, I hope you will join us ...

ILWS January Cup Challenge - Card 3.

ILWS Challenge 3 was another set by Monica, but we all thought she'd gone mad ... it was a colour challenge the colours being:


We had to use ALL of these colours! We could add any other neutral colours if we wished but HAD to use all the above together.

You'd think I'd find colour challenges quite easy when I've set them for most of last year!

First thing I did was pulled out a piece of card of each of each colour .... then I stared at them for 15 minutes ..... then I panicked

This is what I came up with, not sure I'm happy with it

Stamps: Baroque Motifs
Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue

DSP: Bashful Blue, Sweet Always (Pretty in Pink), Haiku (Old Olive)
ediums- Basic Black
Embellishments: Vintage brads,

Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Paper Piercer, Scallop Edge, Scallop Circle, 1-3/8 circle, 1-1/4 circles punches, stamp-a-ma-jig.

At 10pm it was the last challenge, this one was set by Karin and my favourite of the evening, I'll post more tomorrow ...

Have a look at the ILWS gallery, see what others created for the same challenge.

ILWS January Cup Challenge - Card 1.

Saturday night was Challenge Cup over on ILWS, we had to register at 5pm at which time we were automatically assigned teams and had to be ready for 7pm to begin the first challenge ....

I wasn't at home at 5pm so had to register from my MILs via my mobile, that was a challenge in itself, I'm really not very technology advanced ... I managed it ... eventually. But then had to leave almost straight away to be home with time to eat and be ready to start at 7pm.

I couldn't believe how many people were logged into ILWS, it was a fantastic turnout!

The first challenge was posted promptly at 7pm, a sketch challenge, we had one hour to create and upload a card to the ILWS gallery, this is my card

Stamps: Mr & Mrs
Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White
DSP: Love Stories
ediums- Basic Black
Embellishments: Bashful Blue brads,blue/white polka dot grosgrain ribbon (stash)

Stampers 10 - Only 3 places remaining.


How a Stampers 10 virtual club works:

10 people get together (don't worry I advertise for those people, you don't have to find them them yourself, although if you do have a crafting buddy who will love being part of this please pass on this information) and form a club, the club runs for 10 months, each member agrees to place a minimum order of £15.00 per month plus p&p. This will give us the minimum qualifying order of £150 we need every month. Each month a DIFFERENT member in the club gets to be the hostess and collects all the free benefits associated with that month's total. By the end of the 10 months all the members in the club will have had their turn to be the hostess. It really is as easy at that! Each month a box of goodies will arrive on your doorstep.

You will get a FREE copy of the catalogue and any mini catalogues released through the club duration plus free samples, projects and freebies a few times during the 10 month duration.

So in summary ...

  • 10 members join (and commit to the whole of 10 months)
  • The club runs for 10 months, there is no commitment to continue after the 10 month period
  • Each member agrees to spend a minimum of £15 on products per month (before postage) on any items from the catalogue
  • If you want to spend more you can take an additional place in the club, that way you get to take advantage of the hostess benefits twice :O)
  • When all the places are filled, hostess months with be allocated at random

Stampers 10 will receive:

  • A Stampin' Up! catalogue
  • Sale-A-Bration mini catalogue
  • A least a level one hostess gift from the catalogue, these are exclusive to hostesses (these are sets that cannot be bought, they can only be earned free with qualifying orders of £150 or more). You chose your gift when it is your month to be the virtual hostess, you will also receive a minimum of £15 to spend as you wish on anything from the current catalogue
  • I'll organise ribbon and paper shares (if the group wants them)
  • I'll set up an exclusive Stampers 10 group here on my blog with Project ideas and monthly prizes

As soon as all 10 places are filled the club will start. Remember, because its virtual everything can be done online or over the phone, I'll arrange for your goodies to be delivered to your door :O)

Extra bonus during Sale-A-Bration

  • ALL members of Stampers 10 groups are still eligable to receive free stamp sets for product orders of £45 or more during January and February. THATS MORE FREE STAMP SETS - Choose from the Sale-A-Bration mini catalogue (see posts below)

Happy New Year to everyone to visits my blog I hope you all had a fabulous New Year celebration and that you are all having a lovely relaxing break.

A Passion for Papertrey's current challenge is to create a card with stars featured on the card, this is what I came up with ...

Its a card for a friend at work who should have had her baby boy over the christmas period. I cannot take credit for the card design I CASed that from Amy Celona, I had to play for a while to get the dimensions right! I'm not sure if I wish I'd stuck to a onesie card though ...

Cardstock - Aqua Mist, (PTI)
DSP: Father Knows Best collection, Chocolate Remix (PTI)
ediums- Creamy Caramel Stampin' write markers (SU)
Embellishments - Aqua Mist buttons (PTI)
