Onstage gifts - Kylie and Bruno

I made some special gifts to take to Auckland for some friends. This one was for Bruno Bertucci, the husband of Kylie. He has a bit of an addiction to stampin dimensionals so I knew I had to make a cute little pocket for a packet of them.


I found this project quite a while ago now so I cannot remember who to give credit to. If you know who please will you let me know? 

The design is simple - it uses the envelope punch board and a piece of designer series paper measuring 10.5" x 10.5". Using the scoring measurements on your envelope punch board you simply make a large envelope - 4.5' x 8.5' 

Fold and glue the envelope shut (you might need to trim a little off the top to make it flush) then cut the envelope in half and you have 2 pockets to fill with all sorts of goodies. 

I then made a simple belly band with the left over designer series paper and decorated both with the Geared Up Garage stamp set. 

I stamped the images onto various die cut shapes and adhered them together. 

These would make fun gifts for class attendees or for your team don't you think?

Ha! I love this sentiment and it was just the perfect card for my nephew - he loves cake! (actually he loves all food really like any sports mad, growing boy!!) We got to celebrate with his favourite caramel mud cake - yum! 

This sentiment comes from the Free Cake stamp set.  I stamped in black memento so I could colour the layers of the cakes with my blends. 

I added some fun polka dots with a layer of designer series paper.

Thinking of You - Just Because

I made this card a little while ago and forgot to share it with you! I found some fabulous designs on Pinterest. (you know I love pinterest!) 

I love this stamp set but I feel it hasn't gotten enough recognition. It is a hostess set called Just Because and I love the bold images and the sentiments are really sweet too. 

For this card I have used Pear Pizzazz as my main colour with a pop of Old Olive for the frame. I used the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper for the first layer then used my rectangle stitched framelits to create a frame for the image. I embossed the old olive panel using the quilt top embossing folder for some added texture. 

I coloured the image with my blends - crumb cake and old olive.

Hurry before they are gone for good - last chance products.

It's that time of the year where we have to say goodbye to some items to make way for brand new ones! 

Now this list is a bit long - mainly for one reason. 

Stampin'  Up! are discontinuing all wood mount stamps and also transitioning all clear stamps to our new cling style. Some stamp sets are not disappearing, they are just being reconfigured to the new style. This has made the list a lot longer than usual. So don't panic! 

Now these items are WHILE STOCKS LAST and many do sell out so make sure you get in early. 

If you are not sure please, please ask - I know it can be a bit overwhelming sometimes!

Fable Friends Pocket - Easter Greetings

I have another Fable Friends 3D project to show you today. Another fun project I saw online. I made this little pouch with my envelope punch board then added the Rabbit and sentiment. Inside I put a small notecard so I can write a little note. I thought these would be sweet to add a little gift in too.  

After I made this I thought they were so cute I made a bunch more to send to my team. I really appreciate having them in my life and I love to spoil them when I can. I love the so much I have now used up all of my favourite gingham gala designer series paper!

Sweet Bunny - Fable Friends

I just adore this little bunny and I think he/she is on all of my Easter projects this year!  

This card is inspired by Patty Bennett  and it was too sweet not to recreate. 

She fits perfectly into the stitched shapes die don't you think?   

I like the colour combination - flirty flamingo and blushing bride. The pop of the darker colour makes the designer series paper really stand out. And speaking of designer series paper - this pattern is from the Tropical Escape pack. It looks totally different here!

What cute Easter projects are you working on?
