Clean and simple Butterfly Gala card

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to be able to bring you this project today. I made it ages ago, as part of our Pootlers Team Card Swap (see my post HERE to see the cards I received) but have delayed making this post as the Butterfly Gala stamp set and the Butterfly Duet punch have been out of stock. But now they are back, so here is my project.


Butterfly Gala Duet Punch Stampin' Up!


Very simple little card but very effective I think. I do love a minimalist card with lots of white space! I was inspired by a card I found on Pinterest by Lisa Curcio

I've made a video tutorial to show you how I made the card. Watch it HERE or by clicking on the image below.


As I've been building up my collection of Stampin' Blends, making this card was a great excuse to use as many of them as I could. I needed to make 5 cards to send off to the other people in my swap group,  so I tried to use a different colour combination on each one.

And here are all 5 cards together.

Just a quick update - stocks of some dies running low!

Hi everyone,

Just a quick stock update for you today. I have some good news and some not so good news. The good news is that the Butterfly Gala stamp set, the Butterfly Duet punch and the bundle are now back in stock. Hurray!

The not so good news is that Stampin' Up! have let us demos know that several of the dies and bundles in the Spring Summer catalogue have been popular way beyond the expected numbers. Stocks of these products are now running very low. This means that they are unlikely to be available until the end of the catalogue period and may even retire for good within weeks. So if any of these dies are on your wishlist, you’ll want to make sure you place an order soon.  Click on the product name / bundle photo in the product list at the bottom of this post to view them in my online store.

Here are the products which are in short supply:

WONDERUL FLORAL FRAMELITS / WONDERFUL ROMANCE BUNDLE 





 DETAILED BIRTHDAY EDGELITS DIES / BIRTHDAY CHEER BUNDLE


DOILY BUILDER THINLITS DIES / DEAR DOILY BUNDLE





ROSE TRELLIS THINLITS / CLIMBING ROSES BUNDLE


Sale-A-Bration runs until the end of the month (31st March 2019), so there’s still lots of shopping time to earn free products. So maybe now is a good time to buy these products if they are on your wish list and earn a freebie at the same time!  With three releases of free products, there’s lots of amazing choice for everyone! See HERE for the full choice.

Back soon,

Happy St Patrick's Day - win a pack of DSP!!

Hi everyone,

Did you know that it is St Patrick's Day today. I expect all my Irish followers will be celebrating! I'm sure there will be lots of green being worn and Guinness being drunk.

Just as a bit of fun for today, I have a little poll for you. Which is your favourite Stampin' Up! green?



Just leave me a comment below to let me know which is favourite green by 10pm on Friday 2nd March and next weekend I'll put all the names in a hat and draw out a winner. The winner will receive a pack of 20 6" x 6" green DSPs. Sorry though - I can only send them to people in the UK. Look forward to hearing your views!

Magazine Style Storage Box for 6" x 6" patterned paper stacks Part 2

Hello again everyone,

I'm back today with the second part of my tutorial on how I made these fabulous storage boxes for my 6" x 6" paper stacks. Do pop back to yesterday's post if you missed it - in that I give all the instructions on how to construct the boxes. Today we are going to decorate them!


Bloom by bloom Stampin' Up!

I used the lovely Bloom by Bloom stamp set to decorate my boxes. I am really loving this stamp set - the more I use it, the more ideas for projects I have. Click on the link at the bottom of the post if you'd like to see the set in more detail (and of course, if you'd like to buy it!)

This is the template you will need for the sides of the box.


And you will also need two other panels - one measuring 1 1/2" x 2 1/4" and the other measuring 1 1/2" x 5 7/8".

Here is the video showing how to do the stamping - just click HERE or on the image below:


Hope you have enjoyed this project. Would love it if you'd leave me a comment!
