Some sad news

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let you know that for the next few weeks my posts on here, especially those showing new projects and videos will be very limited. Sadly my lovely dad died last Friday and as he lived with my mum in Norfolk, I have had to up sticks and come to Norfolk for a few days/weeks to arrange the funeral and look after mum, so have no access to all my crafty stash.


My dad was a very lovely, gentle man, very traditional in his outlook but exceptionally unselfish with his time. He would have done anything for anyone. And our nick name for him was "Mr Fix It" as there was very little that he couldn't fix - electricals, cars, furniture.....he was so clever that way. He looked after my mum, who was diagnosed with dementia five years ago, until very recently. I will miss him more than I can say.

I'll be back as soon and as often as I can but please bear with me.

Jill and Gez Go Crafting - Wed 11th Dec


Hi everyone,

Welcome to another "Jill and Gez Go Crafting" when myself and my good friend Gez give each other a bit of exposure on our blogs. 

Gez has an amazing blog with loads of fabulous inspiration and really detailed tutorials - just hop over to https://www.nigezza.co.uk/. And also a brilliant YouTube channel which you can view HERE

First up today is this cute little tree table favour. Gez has used the Pine Tree Punch to make this 3D "box" and it has turned out great.


You'll have to pop over to Gez's blog to see how to make it - read all about this project HERE.

Next Gez has been making some quick and easy tags, again using the Pine Tree Punch (What do you mean you haven't bought it yet! Buy it today and get FREE SHIPPING - see below)




Read all about this cute project HERE.

Lastly for today, is this Gez's take on being eco friendly this year - instead of buying unrecyclable gift wrapping paper Gez has hand stamped on brown kraft paper. Love it! 

Read all about it HERE.

Hope you've enjoyed seeing Gez's projects today and that you'll pop over to see her fabulous blog. I'll be back with more from Gez in two weeks!

FREE SHIPPING - WEDNESDAY 11th DECEMBER

Hi everyone

Just a quickie as I know it's a busy time of year for everyone.
Stampin' Up! are offering free shipping when you place an order for £35+ or 40€ (if you are in Europe) on December 11th only!


No one likes paying the delivery fee so its a wonderful opportunity to order those supplies on your list but simply haven't got around to ordering.

As we are 1 hour behind Europe our 24 hour free shipping sales starts and ends 1 hour earlier.
11:01 p.m. (10 December)–10:59 p.m. (11 December) (UK)

It's a good time to maybe purchase a few Christmas gifts too as orders placed before 15th December are guaranteed to arrive before Christmas.

Be sure to check out the items on our Year-End Close Out and the Clearance Rack as well as retiring items as some have already sold out and will not be re-stocked.
Lots of items which are being retired on 2nd January and are available now whilst stocks last, and some with a great discount.

The easiest way to see everything on offer is to go to my online shop HERE

I have added a new code for December on my blog so be sure to enter it when shopping online with me to receive a free thank you card and gift for shopping with me.

Watch the unboxing video of my new Stampin' Up! goodies

Hi everyone,

A couple of weeks ago all us Stampin' Up! demos received early copies of the new Spring Summer mini catalogue, which will go live for customers on 3rd January. As demos, we get the chance to preorder from the catalogue a month early and that is exactly what I did. 

Here is the cover of the catalogue - I'm not allowed to show you the inside pages but the cover shows you how some of the new products have been used - I just love those poppies! 


Would you like to see what I ordered? Of course you would! I must admit I was a little bit naughty and spent far too much - oh well, I am worth it!!

CLICK HERE to watch my unboxing video, or on the image below and see what you think.


Some amazing new products eh?

And don't forget that starting at the same time as the new mini catalogue, we have our annual Sale-a-bration promotion, which means that every time you order you have the chance to earn some amazing FREE products - stamp sets, a punch, some dies, patterned papers, a card kit, embellishments - so much crafty loveliness. And all for FREE - all you need to do is place an order for £45 or multiples of £45. I'll be posting more about this soon. 

And of course if you'd like a copy of our new catalogue (for free of course!) just drop me an email at jilldchapman@gmail.com. You can then spend a lovely couple of hours, browsing all the wonderful new goodies coming out in January. I for one can't wait to get started playing with my new stash.

The Project Share Project - 5th dec

Hi everyone,


Welcome to another Thursday and the Project Share Project where I get to showcase projects made by some of my crafty friends. And as we hurtle ever more quickly towards Christmas, I thought we would have one last look at some Christmas cards, to give some inspiration, just in case yours are not made yet! So we are beginning with Verity of Inky Butterfly who has made this lovely card, showing another way to use the very versatile Peffectly Plaid stamp set and coordinating Pine Tree punch.


Perfectly Plaid Stampin Up

Hop over to Verity's blog to see the details about her card by CLICKING HERE.

Next  today is Heather of Stamp with Nellie. Heather has used the DSP (Designer Series Paper - or patterned paper) from the Most Wonderful Time product medley as the main feature on her card - it doesn't show up too well in photos but this paper has beautiful gold foiling on it.

And last for today is Gez. Gez has once again used the cute penguin set- Playful Penguins - for this fun card.

Origami card case with matching cards

Hi everyone,

Way back in September we had several "Make n Take" projects to complete and I've already shared a couple with you. Today I have some photos for you of another one of our projects. This one is a case for a set of cards which is made by just folding a piece of 12" x 12" paper - no glue needed. And I need to give a shout out to Karen Varley of Donemark Papercrafts whose idea this was. You find Karen's blog by CLICKING HERE.

Bird Ballad Origami Card Case Stampin Up

This is the inside of the case with no cards in it. 

Bird Ballad Origami Card Case Stampin Up

As you can see we used the Bird Ballad papers and followed the theme through on the cards in the case - using the Free As A Bird stamp set. 

Free as a bird stamp set Stampin Up

Here are the cards in the set. We used Stampin' Up Note Cards and envelopes as the basis for these cards.

Bird Ballad Origami Card Case Stampin Up

I was hoping to be bringing you a video to show how to make this case and card set but unfortunately I was called away from home to look after my parents so I'm afraid you will have to wait!

But wouldn't this card set make a gorgeous Christmas gift for someone?  Nothing like a handmade gift that is also useful. And who wouldn't like to receive this?

I have made another version of this using Magnolia Lane paper and some coordinating cards which I will bring you in a couple of days.

Til then, have a great day,
