Welcome to Day 1 of my Advent Countdown - #216

Over the next few weeks I will be bringing you 24 Christmas Themed Projects. These will include gift suggestions, card designs, gift wrapping - you name it, I will probably cover it.

Year of Cheer Tea Light Cracker Stampin Up

Today brings a second first, so as well as this being the first of the series, it is also the first time I have made a Cracker Box. I have made this using the Envelope Punch Board, which makes way more than just envelopes. The measurements are below, but if you need more details, just follow the link to my YouTube tutorial.


I hope you agree that this is a great way of dressing up a few Tea Lights into a really cute little parcel, and it really is not difficult.

13 Days of Halloween LAST DAY! - #215

I am hoping you will agree that I have saved the best to last! The Detailed Gate dies are to die for!! I have been waiting to use these and they have not disappointed.

Add a bit of sponged inking, a couple of stamps and you are pretty much done, and I really do think it is stunning. I used a slightly odd colour scheme, but it gave me the exact look I was going for.


I used the sponge brayers, but you could use Stampin' Sponges instead, just remember that a light hand is key to getting the look without obvious lines. And who knew that my absolute favourite stamp set, High Tides, could come in for some Halloween fun?

Today is the penultimate project of this series, and brings a minimal supplies project, but that is still a stunner, she says modestly!

I really enjoy making little gift bags and boxes, and with just a few supplies, it is so easy to do. And we all love those sorts of project, right!


So which one do you prefer, the Cats & Hats or the Pumpkins? I'm not sure.

13 Days of Halloween Day 11 with a Twist - #213

Today there is a twist to my 13 Days of Halloween as it coincides with the third of the Inspire.Create Challenges. A simple challenge really as it is a Theme of 'Festive', which could be any celebration. As this falls within my Halloween series, I thought I would do two versions, one Halloween and one Christmas, using the fantastic, and FREE, Merry Patterns Hostess stamp set.


I must thank Dena Rekow for the inspiration behind this project, it has also set my mind running on some other ideas with the embossing folder, but more of that (possibly already!! - the joys of posting out of sequence).


Dare I say, what is not to love about a reindeer in a Nordic jumper? I am really looking forward to making a few more cards with this exclusive stamp set.

I urge you to take a look at all the other inspiration the Design Team has come up with, just click on the image below and you will jump over to the website.

Stampin' Blends Launch Date Announced!!

Stampin' Up! have kindly agreed that they will launch the new Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers on my Birthday! They knew I would be really excited about that, so that was just so kind of them.

OK, it is pure coincidence that the launch date and my birthday happen to fall on the same day, but it does not reduce the excitement I have for the blends. Because I am a Demonstrator, I was able to order these at the start of this month and I LOVE them (keep tuned for a few sneaky projects with them soon)!

Stampin Blends Stampin Up


So what is the date? 1st November. BUT you could get them before then and at a discount! YAY!! Just buy the new Member's Starter Kit and drop them in as part of the £130 of product you get for just £99 (including FREE shipping) and you will have them in a matter of days. The full set of 27 pens (which includes the Colour Lifter) is just £108, which leaves you with £22 still to spend. You can get single colours and duo too, but who wouldn't want the full set!!

13 Days of Halloween Day 10 - #212

Will someone please tell me why I waited so long to get the Mini Gift Bag Dies! I love this little bag, it is perfect for all kinds of gift giving. Teachers Gifts, Thank you Gifts and of course, Trick or Treat Gifts.
spooky night Halloween trick or treat stampin up mini treat bag

I have gone out on a bit of a limb here and used So Saffron as one of the colours for the project, only a small amount, but for me it is a better match to the colour in this particular sheet of paper.


Are you with me on that one? It just seemed to work a bit better than Very Vanilla. And it's my project, and I like it!! Stamps foot to show determination!

I hope you enjoy the project and will give it a go.

13 Days of Halloween Day 9 - #211

These little cups are just too cute for words, so adding a little bit of Halloween Stamping just makes them even cuter, doesn't it?

I posted a project similar to this a little while ago, using Designer Series Paper, but this one is just paper and ink, and so quick and easy to put together.


Four cup covers from one piece of A4 cardstock is pretty amazing too!

13 Days of Halloween Day 8 - #210

Well this is a project that is a we bit punch and die heavy, but if you already have them, it actually needs very few additional products. Circle punches could be substituted with circle dies, the square dies could be left out and the cardstock just cut to size, so don't worry too much about the product list!

Our Pizza Boxes are really cute, food safe, easy to stamp on or colour (just remember that if you are using them for unsealed food, spraying with ink would not be a great idea!). Love that you can turn a plain white box into pretty much anything you want, just add whatever embellishments you want.


Loving that we have the Real Red and Old Olive Marker Duo in the Autumn/Winter Catalogue, I always buy any Duos or Singles that are offered, it is a great way to build up a collection of Markers in an affordable way.

13 Days of Halloween Day 7 - #209

Time for a really cute Test Tube stand project. I spotted something similar to this on Pinterest (what a fantastic resource that is!) and was determined to give it a go. It actually came together really quickly as some of the positioning and measurements are a bit flexible. And we like that kind of project and The Old Stables!

These tubes can be filled with pretty much anything you want, be that liquid or solid, so could be after dinner sweets, or a little alcoholic after dinner treat maybe.


Great for using up narrow strips of Designer Series Paper, I hope you will give it a go.

13 Days of Halloween Day 6 - #208

Our Team currently has a Challenge running to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) a project from either of the current Catalogues (Annual or Autumn/Winter), and this is my entry. Taken from page 22 of the Annual Catalogue, this is my twist on the little bag. As today is Friday 13th, will this be my lucky or unlucky day in the challenge?

Spooky Night Merry Cafe Bag

Spooky Night Merry Cafe Bag

I have to say that I am really pleased with how it turned out, in particular the Vellum window and embossing. It is worth remembering that embossing powder melts a LOT quicker on vellum than on cardstock because the vellum heats up quicker, so be very careful not to over heat it.


I think these bags would make great table gifts at a Halloween Themed dinner.

13 Days of Halloween Day 5 - #207

Welcome to one of the smallest projects I have every made! This is a tiny TicTac treat book, similar to the one I shared as part of the 2nd Annual Ultimate Pink Blog Hop on Sunday (which you can find HERE)


I think this has to be one of the cutest projects I have put together for a while, simply because of the size. Sadly this size of TicTac does not seem to be readily available, other than at Airport Duty Free Shops, so you know what to do next time you know someone who is travelling overseas.


I do hope you enjoy this and the whole Halloween series. Come back tomorrow for more!

13 Days of Halloween Day 4 - #206

Welcome back to the 13 Days of Halloween. I have another food related, Trick or Treat, project for you today (which seems to be the main focus of Halloween these days!)

Spooky Night Spooky Cat Reese Cup Stampin Up

I found the Snack Size of Reese Peanut Butter Cups in one of our local shops, and thought the colour of the wrapper was perfect for Halloween goodies.


This is a fairly straightforward project, as long as you can get your head around all the scoring and folding. I do recommend using a HOT melt glue gun for this rather than a COOL melt glue gun; it gives you more time to get everything stuck in the right place, just be careful not to burn yourself!

13 Days of Halloween Day 3 - #205

Trick or Treat is really beginning to be a 'thing' in the UK, so having a few quick, but small and inexpensive projects to dress up some wrapped sweets is always going to be a good idea.

Seasonal Chums Stampin Up Sweet wrappers

These little wraps use the Pumpkin/Jack-o-Lantern from Seasonal Chums, and is really quick and easy to put together. The only thing to master is how you place the die and cutting mat to make sure that you have the flap in place to go under the sweet. But if you don't master that, don't panic - just add an extra strip under the sweet and stick it to the inside of both parts of the tag.


I love these, add them to a Halloween tree (that's a thing, right!?) or trim the 'hole' off and just have them in a bowl waiting for the 'over-hyper-sugar-high' children to come round and collect them from you in a few weeks time.

2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop

I am honoured to be part of this amazing Blog Hop supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer has touch my family more than many, and I count myself as lucky to be one of the survivors. I pray each day for that to continue. Make sure you get your check ups regularly. In the UK we are lucky that the NHS call us for mammograms, but don't just wait, if you notice a difference when you do your regular and routine self exam (you are doing them, right!), get it checked out!!!!! It could save your life. 

Ribbon of Courage TicTac Holder for 2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop

When I came to design my project I thought about doing a simple card, but then memories of going through Chemotherapy kept coming back to me and I thought I would like to create something that I would have been touched to have received during this time.


I think we are all too aware of the impact that Chemo can take on your body with hair lose, sickness, weight gain, the list is horrible and long. Strangely one of the things that I found most annoying was the way that it mucked about with my taste buds, so I would suck sweets a lot (which may have been part of the reason for the weight gain of course!) My project is a sweet holder, specifically a Large Size Strawberry Fields TicTac holder (the pink just seemed to be the right way to go). I am hoping that the messages and the Ribbon of Courage will help to give any Breast Cancer fighter a little boost.

Please take the time to visit as many of the hoppers as you can, they all have wonderful projects to share, and some amazing stories. The next person on the list is Connie Babbert, please take the time to visit her blog
