Pretty In Pink using Stampin’ Up! Products


Have you seen the new Stampin’ Up! ® Annual catalogue yet? It’s absolutely lovely! I had my catalogue launch event and all my ladies think it’s the best one they’ve seen and want everything! Glad I’m not alone there! Today’s project is using brand new Stampin’ Up! products combined with some that have carried over from the spring/summer catalogue!

I had to make birthday cards for twins this weekend. They are a boy and girl and I wanted different cards for them. I used Swirly Bird and Number of Years for the little girl and No Bones About it and Number of Years for the little boy. I really didn’t have a choice on colour scheme for the little girl – she LOVES pink!

I kept the sentiment the same but I didn’t want to just do a blue version of the card as I think twins tend to get given the same things and I wanted to give them each something a bit different – what do you think?

I used the retired 2-1/2″ circle punch as I am in between circle framelits having sold my retired ones in my BOGOF sale on Saturday! Oops bad planning there lol! 😉



The sentiment is from Number of Years and is not quite so rounded in real life, as you can see in the picture above, but I have a really easy trick for you!

As this is a photopolymer stamp set the stamps are quite flexible. I simply placed the negative of the circle I  had punched out over an acrylic block and shaped the set to fit around the curve at the top! It stays in place for a while – plenty of time to stamp the sentiment a couple of times!

Spring Easter Bunny Treat Bag Video – using Stampin’ Up! ® products

Good morning everyone. I hope you are all fine and dandy today. A while back I posted a picture of two cute little bunny treat bags that I was intending to make in my March class. I was undecided on which colour to go for. In the end we made both, with a more grown up option available for the ladies to make if the preferred.

The bunnies went down a treat I must say! Also the Petite Petal flower stamp and punch bundle (wood or clear) used to decorate the grown up version was very popular, even amongst the ladies who made the bunny version!

Well back to the bunnies though, I filmed a video tutorial for the gift bags, and as the class was last week I can share it with you all now. I do hope you enjoy it.

Yay – what a fantastic weekend. The sun has been shining and the temperature has been very spring like. It’s amazing the difference it makes to everyone’s moods. The boys have been as mad as March hares (but nothing new there). My lovely husband took them out for about 4 hours yesterday, so I managed to film a few video tutorials! Yippee. I’m still in post production stage (ha ha get me – like I know what I’m talking about! NOT!! Lol!!).

Do you remember Batty – the little Hallowe’en Bat gift bag I made for the boys? Well Batty has metamorphosed into Bunny. I’m not sure which colour scheme to go with for my class at the end of the month. The May household is evenly split 2:2 on which one is the nicest. What do you think?

I am doing a grown up pretty version for the ladies in the class, who might not have little children in their lives but I won’t post a picture of those until after the class. If you are local and would like to join us you are more than welcome. You can find more details here.

I have a video tutorial for these bags, which I will post in a couple of weeks. Come back on Wednesday though to see the tutorial for this box using the envelope punch board.
