Pootler’s Team Sale-a-bration Blog Hop


Hello everyone and welcome to the second Pootlers Blog Hop of the month! I am proud to be a member of a group of crafters and fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrators known as the Pootlers! This time we want to share some of the lovely FREE products that can be gained during the months of January through March. Yes, they are completely FREE with every purchase over £45!

It was hard to choose one product to feature but I decided to go with the Hey Chick stamp set. This wasnt a stamp set that I was instantly drawn to, but as soon as I saw projects made by others with this set it began to grow on me – isn’t this chick super cute?


There are a few characters to stamp in this set but I chose this one, I think its my favourite. Of course, this stamp set also gave me the opportunity to play with the watercolour pencils again, I just love them! I used Daffodil Delight and Calypso Coral pencils, the Calypso Coral matches the Carried Away paper perfectly. These pencils are so easy to use and have such great colours too. I also used these fab papers from the  Carried Away Designer Series Paper pack – also free during the Sale-a-bration period! And I managed to incorporate another favourite of mine in this project – the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies – these have been pn back order but are now back in stock!

I hope you like my project today and I hope you take advantage of this wonderful offer whilst it’s on – remember for every £45 you spend you will earn a FREE product!

Pootler’s Team Blog Hop


Hi everyone and welcome to my first blog hop of the year! I am really excited today to be joining in the Pootler’s Team Blog Hop! This hop is all about showing some of the amazing new products from the spring/summer catalogue. This catalogue is packed with so many gorgeous goodies that it was so hard to decide which one I wanted to share with you! I showed you the adorable Falling in Love suite last week, so today I decided to go with the stunning Dragonfly Dreams bundle.


This set is so beautiful, but because I love so much in the new catalogue I ended up mixing it up with a whole bunch of other stuff that I love too! The dragonfly itself I coloured with the gorgeous new watercolour pencils and a blender pen. It is so beautifully detailed that I thought the lace doilie went perfectly with it. I have listed at the bottom of this blog all the other products that I have used.

Thanks for stopping by, please use the list below to follow the hop and see the amazing creations my fellow Pootlers have come up with.

Have a crafty weekend,

Anniversary Gift Box and Card

Hi everyone – I am so happy today to be sharing with you my first project from the brand new Spring/Summer catalogue which went live today!

It full of beautiful stamps, dies, papers and lots of lovely accessories! It was really hard for me to decide what I wanted to play with first, but once my order arrived I quickly made up my mind – the Falling in Love suite is beautiful. It has two beautiful stamp sets, a beautiful intricate die, gorgeous coordinating paper and several other accessories. I love it.


In this project today I have only been able to show you a couple of these lovely goodies, but over the next few weeks I will be showing more!

I used the very pretty heart border punch (from the annual catalogue) to cut the little hearts at the top of the card, and I chose to use the colours that are promoted in the Falling in Love suits. They are Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride, two colours that I feel add to the delicate look of the card. The other colour in the suite is Soft Sky. When I attached the top layer of card to the Blushing Bride underneath, I used dimensionals to really make the beautiful hearts stand out.

After I had made this anniversary card I decided it would be lovely to make a gift box to go alongside it. I made it using the Gift Box Punch Board from Stampin’ Up – if you watch my video below you can see how I made it.

The dimensions for the gift box are 8″ x 8″, and follow the directions on the Gift Box Punch Board for making a 3.25 x 3.25 x 1.75″ box.

For the gift tag you will need:                                                                                                                 One piece of cardstock 4.25 x 2″,                                                                                                                   One piece of cardstock 3.5 x 1 3/8″,                                                                                                             One piece of cardstock 3 3/8 x 1.25 

I hope that you have enjoyed this project and my video. Don’t forget that this is Sale-a-bration period, which means that for every £45 you spend in either or both Spring/Summer and Annual Catalogues, you will be able to choose a free product from the Sale-a-bration catalogue! What a great start to the year. If you would like  copy of any of the brochures please contact me on the email address below. And dont forget to head on over to my store to see the goodies for yourself! Juse click on the Shop Now button at the top of the page.
