I love berry burst and will be gutted when the colour retires its a colour I’ve reached for over and over. I think this beautiful floral image really stands out in the deep pink  and I’m so glad this stamp set is carrying over.

Paper hoarders anonymous

So today I am admitting my problem…I hoard paper, I see gorgeous dsp packs and think I have to have them but then thy sit in my craft room unused (because who cuts something that pretty) Until now. You might have seen my recent posts about #loveitchopit well todays post follows on from that theme.

 

I chose to use a retired paper picture perfect party (but honestly any paper would do) and some retired card stock I had that matched (peekaboo peach)

I cut the a4 card stock in half (14.9cm) and then scored (at 10.5cm) to make a card base to make the paper pop I added a layer of black card stock (14.4cm x10cm) then a layer of dsp (13.9cm x 9.5cm) I then added a simple sentiment which could be done using a punch (like the triple banner or one of stampin’ up’s! label punches) or by hand. I thought these cards were really effective and super simple.

 

If you check back in the next few days there will also be  notecard holder which can be made to coordinate and  works perfectly to give as a gift. Hope to see you then.20190518_175049

It’s a beautiful day

Good morning hopefully today is a beautiful day where you are, as currently while i’m writing its a horrible rainy grey day. This card is definitely pretty enough to cheer me up, I overlooked this set completely in last years catalogue but it really jumped out when I saw the samples in the new 2019-20 Stampin up Catalogue. Hopefully you like it as much as I do.20190518_174905

Natures Poem DSP Scrap Card

20190518_174853I’m sure you are all like me and constantly have scraps of designer series paper that you hold on to without knowing what to do with it… well this card might be the solution. I had loads of slithers of paper left from my #loveitchopit so decided to put them to good use, the possibilities with this card are endless you could just go with simple stripes or create a more complicated design, but best of all there is no waste whatsoever. Definitely my kind of crafting would you agree?

Today’s post is a bit of a sad one as I’m gutted to be saying goodbye to one of my favourite retiring sets- Coffee Cafe, but i thought I would send it off in style with this wonderful project I was shown at our April team retreat by Sally from SallyStampers.  If you would like more details on this project Sally has a wonderful video showing measurements etc over on her site, Click here to see it!  I hope you like this project as much as I did, it would be great as a gift to go with a copy of the new annual catalogue so the lucky recipient could enjoy the read with a cuppa and a biscuit.

Sneak Peek DSP #loveitchopit

So my preorder arrived yesterday (definitely benefits to being a demonstrator) and I was super excited to chop my Designer series paper which is something I would have never done before.

I’m finding if I chop the paper I’m using it so much more and really appreciating the level of detail that goes into it. New DSP case inserts will be on the useful links page ASAP pictures will be updated as soon as I can use catalogue images too.
