Pretty Packaging with Stampin’ Up!
I love how I can create co-ordinated and themed pretty packaging with Stampin’ Up! I think the wrapping is as important as the gift and I give this part just as much care and attention as the gift itself. The packaging pictured above was made by Sarajane, she shares my love of wrapping as you can see. Continue reading
Let me introduce you to the brand new Stamparatus. I’m sure like me you have experienced stamping an image only to find you didn’t have enough ink on the stamp, or tried to position flowers into a jug from 2 separate stamps, it’s a bit nerve wracking and doesn’t always turn out.

4 Fold Anniversary Card Commission
A friend commissioned a card for her husband for their 25th wedding anniversary. This 4 fold anniversary card is what I came up with.

Otherwise it can be hard to incorporate many different themes into one card design.
Embossing Paste Eclectic Layers Card
I had a brainwave when I saw the Eclectic Layers Thinlits and the Embossing Paste. How amazing to have the thinlit shape with the rows of diamonds raised in the paste. I cut out the shape using the thinlit from Window Sheet, this way I can use the same mask over and over.
Here’s the card I created and demonstrated for attendees to make in my June classes.
Beautiful Soft Sky Anniversary Card
This month’s class included this beautiful soft sky anniversary card. This card was cased from Leanne Johnson and the Occasions Catalogue page 50.
The Falling in Love Suite is pretty and elegant and it’s perfect for all marriage related occasions like anniversaries, weddings and engagements. The fonts and images are beautiful and the accessories compliment the suite perfectly. I especially love the doilies because they are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other and they can be coloured using ink to any Stampin’ Up! ink colour that you like.
