Stampin' Up! Holiday Tag It Bundle Offers

How much do you enjoy creating your own gifts and then spending the time to package them and make them just perfect? If you enjoy this a LOT you are going to love this fabulous new offer from Stampin' Up!

Stampin_Up_UK

So there are two bundles included in the offer, the difficult bit is choosing which one to get - or in my case to argue why I shouldn't have both!

Stampin_Up_Nottingham

Each kit contains the amazing Stamp a Tag Kit which comes in it's own cute box complete with 24 blank tags, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Classic Stampin' Spots, Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive Bakers Twine and the Stamp a Tag stamp set PLUS 10 yards of Cherry Cobbler 1" Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon. 

The Decorative Box Bundle also includes a pack of 6 Decorative Window Gift Boxes.
The Extra Large Box Bundle also includes a pack of 3 Extra Large Gift Boxes.

Want some inspiration? Here's a project I made using the Extra large Box Bundle:

Stampin_Up_Demonstrator

Love the size of this box, the lid is 6" square. I've covered the whole box with decorative papers from the Season of Style Series and then had some fun colouring in images using Markers from Color Me Christmas. I've die cut them and then layered them with Deco Labels Framelits.

Stampin_Up_Demonstrator

I created a huge bow for the top using the Cherry Cobbler Stitched Edge Grosgrain Ribbon and looped through both Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine. I love the way the tags are already finished on both sides with a Crumb Cake circle around the punched hole - all about the detail!

 I've stamped the tags and the Old Olive Card around the box using inks and stamps included in the kit. Want to go shopping? Just click on the product images below to visit my Stampin' Up! Shop.

So a project for today. I love decorating up little notepads to make them all pretty and here are three I made up this week:

Stampin_Up_UK_Nottingham

I've used another of the stamp sets in our current offer (25% off 25 stamp sets!) Betsy's Blossoms. I went mad on this set when the annual catalogue first launched and haven't used it much since - ever made so much with one set you get crafters block? Well it was blummin' lovely to be using it again!

My colour combo consists of the current In Colours - Baked Brown Sugar, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding. I've added some pretty Stretch Ruffle Ribbon and Boutique Details.

Stampin' Up! Gifts of Kindness

Brrrr - blimey it was a bit cold last night!!!! Wrapping up warm today for a day out with the boys doing a Spooky Trail! 

On Tuesday I told you about the fantastic offer for one week only Stampin' Up! are giving us 25% discount off 25 different stamp sets - so here's another card made using one of those sets - Gifts of Kindness. I have of course HAD to use the new Card Thinlits Dies - again in circles. I can see my Big Shot getting lots of action this week ha ha!

Stampin_Up_UK_Nottingham

My colour combo is driven from the beautiful  Afternoon Picnic Designer Papers - Pear Pizazz, Wisteria Wonder, Coastal Cabana and Basic Gray. I stamped the main floral image direct onto the designer paper in Basic Gray and then coloured it with Markers and stamped onto Whisper White.

Below you can see the outside and inside both with sentiments from the set.

Here's a reminder of all the stamps in the set:

Stampin' Up! UK NEW Thinlits Card Dies

I'm doing a happy dance!
  Cor ever since I saw these were available in the States I've wanted them. I love making fancy fold cards and don't always have much patience with measuring and cutting etc. But these two dies take all the hard work out of it 


Stampin_Up_Nottingham
  
and what's more, it's not just the frame, check out all the extras too:


First is the Label Card Thinlits die and next Circle Card Thinlits Die. Both sets coordinate beautifully with Oh Hello, Yippee-Skipee! Really Good Greetings and Regarding Dahilias stamps sets. 
 I imagine you're all shouting at me right now 'Oh wow - Oh Hello and Yippee-Skipee! are both available at a 25% discount this week!' That's right crafters, grab yourself a fabulous new product and a discounted stamp set to go with it - we're just throwing offers at you right now.

They do work rather brilliantly with the Big Shot Magnetic Plate too, want to watch a video? Click on the image below:



I would recommend not hanging about to order these as if they are as popular as the Magnetic Plate was when it was first launched, 3 months of supplies sold out in just two weeks!

Luckily for me, being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator I get to order products early and therefore have a play and made this cutie:


It features one of the 25 stamp sets at 25% discount available until 28th October only, Bright Blossoms. My colour combo here is Strawberry Slush, Wild Wasabi and Coastal Cabana.


I chopped the bottom of the card off to create a square shape instead of the standard rectangle.
Remember you could get your crafty mitts on this stamp set by placing an online order and using my hostess code and winning the freebies or just spend loads and get the hostess benefits for yourself anyway - you know you want to!

You can shop online here:


If you're keen, just create an account and load them up into your shopping basket - but when you do, be sure to add my special hostess code AMZFTZNE to be in with a chance of winning this months FREE hostess stash goodies - and yes you get to choose them if you win!!!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Class Projects

What a grim day out there today! Luckily we had a fun family day out yesterday and the boys are happily making Halloween crafts at the table today.

 So now I can share with you one of the projects we made at my all day Christmas class on Saturday, we had such a fab time, a very relaxed and giggly day was had and I even got to do some crafting myself!

Stampin_Up

A cute set of Christmas card and envelopes in a matching box with a larger card to match. The papers are Season of Style mixed with Crumb Cake Card and Champagne Glimmer Paper.

We made use of the Kraft Gift Boxes and Washi Tape too, everyone got a pack of three rolls of Washi Tape as a bonus product in their goody bags.

I used the Tags 4 You stamp set too - love that you can buy it as a bundle with the Label Bracket Punch too.

Stampin_Up

And a few shots of the room and display:

Stampin_Up

Only I could rock up to set up a Christmas display and forget to take a Christmas Tree! I think I managed OK without it though - twit!

Back tomorrow with some exciting news.

Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio Halloween Treats

I'm not normally a fan of Halloween as my boys are too young to really enjoy it. But when I saw one of the downloads available this week for Stampin' Up! My Digital Studio I had to try something. So I downloaded the file and made some spooky treats:

Stampin_Up

I downloaded the Hooray For Tags Designer Template:

Stampin_Up
 Next I printed the Goblin Goodies tag and cut them out. The smaller round tags are created using Spooky Bingo Bits - also available as a My Digital Studio file. I made up some cartons using the Big Shot Mini Milk Carton die in various shades of Stampin' Up! card and pieced them together with a pack of 'goodies' raisins inside - healthy eh? Held together with a little Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon.

Stampin_Up

I'm going to make a load more and let the boys give them out at school for Halloween - they aren't allowed to give out chocolates or sweets so these will be perfect!

Stampin' Up! Peekaboo Frames

Something a little bit different for me today. I think it's good to step outside of your comfort zone every now and then and that's what I've tried to do with this card. Admittedly I have managed to use Crumb Cake!!!

Stampin_Up

So not really sure what I had in mind I was determined to put my Peekaboo Frames Big Shot Die to good use! I've used Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake card. the wood look is made by stamping the Woodgrain background stamp in Baked Brown Sugar ink. The matching card used on the frame is Natural Composition Speciality. When you open the frame it reveals a little Christmas scene:

Stampin_Up

I've used all manner of things on here from Candy Dots and Brad Bases, Gold Embossing Powder and Markers. Had great fun doing something different.

Now though I have to go and do some removal work! the glaziers have been in again today and have replaced the window in the room of craft. I spent ages this morning taking loads of my Stampin' Up! stuff out, piling it up in the boys bedroom and now have the task of putting it all back in again. I could be gone some time!

Meanwhile, do you fancy a spot of online shopping? Why not visit my shop and enter this months mystery hostess code  AMZFTZNE


Back tomorrow

Stampin' Up! Christmas Messages

Blimey the kids are on form today, cooped up inside as it's raining and after much colouring in, playing games, building train tracks and Lego models it's now time to run around like loons making as much noise as possible!

I escaped - only for a bit to the room of craft, long enough to make some more Christmas cards, I'm determined to get them done this year, I was so rubbish last year and didn't send a single one! So here are five more:

Stampin_Up

 I've used the same colour combo I used on my tutorial last week, Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana. I think they hold a bit of tradition with a modern twist!

I've inked up the sentiment from Christmas Messages with Markers and stamped onto Shimmery White Card. I LOVE the sparkle when you look at it closely.

the baubles are stamped from Very Merry Tags (this one co-ordinates with the Mosaic Punch) and used the Paper Piercing Tool and Stampin' Pierce Mat to create holes and then filled the gaps with a Smokey Slate Marker to give the appearance of stitching.

 Stampin_Up

I've layered the Shimmery White Card onto Brushed Silver Card - again this gives a lovely shimmer, very Christmas!

Cards are finished off with some Self Adhesive Rhinestones for a bit of bling. You can order all these products online now by visiting my Stampin' Up! shop here:


Right - I'm off to find some ear defenders!
