Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge

SSSC Header

Hi everyone and welcome to another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge blog hop!. For anyone new to my blog this is a challenge that I take part in once a month with some fellow crafters. Usually we are given a sketch to work with, but this month is slighlty different – we have been given four Stampin’ Up colours, definitely a challenge!

These are the colours that have been picked for us:SSSC June

They are lovely colours and I really enjoyed working with them. It took me a while to manage to come up with something using all four colours, but I got there!

I used the Falling Flowers stamp set and it’s coordinating framelits dies, May Flowers. I love this stamp set as there is so much you can do with it. I love the flourish and chose it as a background, along with the smallest flower in the set, for my bold die cut flower. 

I really had fun playing around with this stamp set and these colours, I hope you like the end result. My fellow crafters have come up with some amazing projects using these same colours, so make sure that you use the buttons below to go and have a look.

Happy Crafting’

Pootler’s Design Team Week 3


Hi, and welcome to week 3 of The Pootler’s Design Team blog. I have had so much fun experimenting with this set! This week I wanted to do something other than a card so had to put my thinking cap on. I have a little box that sits on my desk with post-it notes in it, so I decided to copy the design and see how it turned out.

I was really pleased with the end result – it turned out to be a super easy box to make, all I really had to do was think of the design for the top. To make the box I used the gorgeous new Fresh Fig card stock from the new catalogue, I think it is definitely one of my favourite colours so far this year.


I used a little bit of the new Powder Pink ribbon to make a wee tag to open the box – then of course I HAD to go and buy some chocolates to see how they would fit in the box!!

In the end I decided to make a card as well to match the box as I was really pleased with how cute the box turned out.

Pop over to my You Tube channel to see a tutorial for this box:
