Advent Calendar

Well Mr Brown finally arrived yesterday evening, he's a new UPS driver and one that clearly doesn't understand the desperation of a Stampin UP! demonstrator anxious to get her hands on her new stash :)

I spent most of the evening creating this advent calendar using the new Big Shot peekaboo dies and the 25 and counting stamp set.  I have a feeling that I am going to be making lots of these calendars as gifts as they are easy to make but really effective.

I tried to keep to 3 basic colours old olive, cherry cobbler and crumb cake, I then embosses and glittered to my hearts content! 

I stuck images behind the doors

This is the one for Christmas Day.

What do you think?  I will show you some different designs over the next few days and then we can pick a favourite!

Have a great day

Christmas Mittens

I fell in love with the Make a Mittens stamp set in the new holiday mini catalogue.  You can buy the punch to match it and it makes such quick and easy cards!

I quickly put this one together using the framelits dies 

The card opens to reveal another framelit stamped with some more of the Make a Mittens set.  The mittens on the front are punched out and embossed and then they just kind of hang the way my mittens did when I was little and my mum put them on a string through my sleeves! - Ah the memories.

I hope you like the card, let me know what you think, I love to read comments

Oh my! The new catalogue is live and ready for your orders!

I have to say this is my favourite time of the Stampin UP! Year, the new catalogue comes out crammed with must have goodies and this year I swear it's better than ever! 

It's much bigger for a start, crammed with over 200 pages of crafting lushness.  They have increased the Big Shot Range and the possibilities are endless!

Why not order a copy from me for £5.00 incl P&P or join one of my stamping clubs?  I am just about to start a new one in conjunction with the new catalogue - all you need to do is to agree to spend £25.00 per month for 10 months exc P&P and in one of those months you will be classed as the "hostess" and receive FREE GOODIES!

If you would "just" like to order some goodies, or have a wish list, let me know and I will make sure sure that your wishes do come true!

Have a great day
