#Holiday Home gets scalloped

Hello everyone.

#Holiday Home and the #scallop tag topper punch

Today I am going to show you a couple more of the demonstration pieces at last week's craft fayre.

I love doing craft fayres and meeting so many amazing people.  Not to mention getting them to stamp and seeing their delight when the image comes out perfectly every time.

Do you remember that yesterday I showed you the box with the cute flying Santa.  

Today I am showing you the cute gift tags made to go with this box.

I have used very vanilla and old olive cardstock.  These are a great vintage colour combination.

Again the inks were Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.

Using the tree from #White Christmas and the santa from Holiday Home I stamped my images.  Matted them onto the old olive.

Next I popped them into the Scallop tag topper punch and created my tops.

The cardstock measured 3 7/8ths" x 1 7/8th" for the very vanilla

The old olive was 2" x 4"

Here's the tags.


Don't forget to stop by tomorrow when you will see my next piece as a guest designer for Sunday Stamps.

#white christmas meets the Box Maker Board from Stampin Up

Morning everyone,


In today's post I am going to show you a cute little box that I was demonstrating at a local event.

If you would like to see a demonstration of this I will be doing demonstrations on the 29th and 30th November at the Rural Living Show in Taunton.  Why not pop along and say hello.

You can play with the gorgeous Stampin UP products and see for yourself why they really are a must.

Anyway heres the cute little box.

I cut my paper to 10" x 10" and then punched out the box following the instructions on the board.

Once I had done that I then laid it down flat and got out my Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler inks.

The stamps sets used are White Christmas for the trees, and Holiday Home for the flying santa. (Isn't he cute)

Once stamped simply fold your box up and secure using the tabs.  Easy.

Ingredients for this box:

Crumb Cake Cardstock
Cherry Cobbler Inkpad
Old Olive Inkpad
White Christmas Stamps
Holiday Home Stamps

All of these are available through my shop here:

Whilst in the shop why not add this week's not to be missed weekly deals.  I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

Take care, big hugs

#Beautiful Bunch meets embossing folders

Hi everyone.

Gosh, did it ever rain yesterday.  I hope you had a better day than we did, but there was some good out of it.  I got to stay in and craft with friends all day. Coffee, chat and crafting ............. notice no cake, were all supposed to be dieting.

Bit of a shock when I went to walk the dogs. The surrounding fields were flooded. Shocked and worried for our local area yet again!  On a good note, the swans were enjoying it.

#Beautiful Bunch Card

As promised yesterday I am showing you the card I made to go with those gorgeous journals.  Aren't they just so cute.

I have used embossing folders to create the texture on the plain colour cardstock, before matting the Designer DSP paper.  I have added half a doily and then the gorgeous flower and finally the sentiment.

This one has the chevrons embossing folder and is in melon mambo.

How about the lovely dots and daffodil delight.  And like it says you can never have too much happy.  

I have used all the same ingredients as yesterday ......... you can see them in this post.

And now for some more news.

#Beautiful Bunch gets journaled ......

Hi everyone.

I hope that you are all well.  


Firstly can I say how lovely it was to meet so many of you at Bridgwater and what a great day was had.  My stand was positioned just perfectly and it was lovely to have so many of you join in the make and takes.  

It was lovely chatting with you all.  


On Saturday I hosted a private class for 7 ladies at my home.  We used the gorgeous #White Christmas stamp set and created some lovely cards.  Thank you once again for booking the class and I am looking forward to next time.


Whilst getting everything ready for the Craft fayres I got out one of my favourite stamp sets and set to work.  I actually created 10 journals, all in different colours.  And each had a greetings card made to match.

I loved doing these and used embossing, and stamping and punching and ribbon and sparkle and so much more.  Great fun to do.

In this example I have used the lovely Bermuda Bay.  I have matted cardstock and DSP from the DSP Stack, punched out a heart border, added a doily and then my flower

Here's a close up ...... I have added glitter to the button, after colouring it with my blendies.
