Double Flap Picnic Basket

I was looking for a box to put some little goodies in as a gift and came across a great tutorial from Crafty Caroline in the UK.

I made the picnic basket & love it.  It is a little fiddly putting the lid on and putting the split pins on but I love how they turned out.  I’ve used up some lovely designer series paper and a good way to use up your retiring products.  The split pins are no longer available from Stampin’ Up! but I’m using up my stock of them.

Here is the video tutorial for the box.  I hope you will enjoy making this box as much as I did.  Don’t forget that the retirement list is out and selling fast so go online to my shop and grab yourself a bargain as some items are up to 50% off

3 more weeks of the 2016/2017 Annual Catalogue

The retirement list is out and products are selling fast. I have created a top ten list of products.

These are some products that I love and will miss once they’re gone from the catalogues.  I’ve enjoyed creating with these products.
Buy them before they’re gone for good.

Balloon Celebration Card Set

The Balloon Celebration Stamp set is a versatile set that can be used for male and female cards.
I’ve been asked to prepare a class using this stamp set and the matching Balloon punch.  The designs are gorgeous with many inspired by Pinterest and one card changed up from an Ice Cream stamp set class that was designed by Stampin’ Up!

I was asked for birthday cards and male and female cards and the cards are in the above photo.  I also decided to make a matching card.  So I made a male and female card of each design using the same colours and I was really happy with how they all turned out.
