All My Love Cute Crew box

Did you know that you can make a box using the Rectangle Stitched Framelits dies?  I'm always looking for different ways to use my stash.  Remember the Stitched Shapes Framelits set - I used the square dies to cut rectangles, and now that we have the new Rectangle Stitched Framelits, I won't have to anymore!

The largest rectangle can be used to make a box approximately 3-1/4" x 1-7/8" with a 1" depth - in metric that will measure 8.2 cm x 4.8 cm with a 2.5 cm depth - just perfect for a couple of macaroons or treats.

Part of My Story - watch out for a sneak peek!

This is a simply stamped card - returning to my roots and going back to basics with limited supplies.  

Are you a paper hoarder?  I used to be, but once you get over that barrier, you won't have any qualms about cutting it up, because paper is a consumable item, and if you use up one, you can always buy another.  Think of the joy you are spreading by sharing them on a card!!!!

I love variety,  not ALL cards need to be all singing and dancing.  Often I find that less is more.  If something is too busy, you don't know what to look at! lol!    If you persevere and watch to the end of the video, you're in for a surprise and a little sneak peek!

All Geared Up

At time of writing, we were seeing our son on the weekend to take him out for a celebratory birthday lunch.  I still can't quite believe we have a son who is now in his early 40s!!!

I wanted a quick and simple card which would reflect his love of cars, and in Stampin' Up!'s new-ish Spring/Summer Catalogue we have a bundle which is just the ticket!

Do you have the Big Shot embossing mats?  I love them!  Did you know you can use these special embossing plates to get more out of  your dies other than for die cutting?    This is the first time I used the grey mat - I usually use the thin blue silicon mat, but I thought I'd give the grey one a try and it leaves a much deeper impression and it's fantastic!  See for yourself!

It's safe to post now as I delivered his card to him personally, and I doubt very much that he would visit my blog - that would be uncool (winks).

In case you're wondering, the sentiment for the inside of the card comes from the "Stitched All Round" stamp set.  I just love the font on it.

Happy Sunday!  Thanks for popping by!

New!!! Second Release Sale-a-bration items!

Yay!  Only a very short lead in time to bring you some new items which have been added to the  Sale-a-bration brochure!  You'll love it - The Country Floral Dynamic TIEF is a Level 1 item and it was too pretty to cover up in the card so I've let it "sing" and only embellished with a greeting and a small strip of DSP.

Stampin' Up! features the artwork from samples their concept artists have made for the cover of the brochure, but my pre-order arrived in the nick of time so I thought I'd make my own to share with you.

Please note that the Country Floral Dynamic TIEF and the Painted Seasons Bundle are Level 1 and Level 2 Sale-a-bration items and are not for purchase, but can be earned FREE subject to a qualifying order excluding shipping and handling.
