When I bring things home to do, they get changed. This christmas cracker was a triangle shape originally and had more ribbon and a different sentiment and a different embossing folder and edge punch! Well lets say I did use the shimmer paper! and somewhat adapted pattern. The embossing folder & edge punch are from the new December mini. I love my bird punch and couldn't resist puting a bird and flowers on it.

Top note die album Tauranga Extravaganza

As a demonstrator at the Tauranga Extravaganza I got to take home the projects that were made to do at home. This means I put my own slant on them. I noticed the top note die album when opened, the points hit each other so I added a spine which is the cherry cobler with white dots from the Jolly Holly DSP. I edged the sentiment with the heart edge punch which is coming in the new mini catalogue on Dec 1st. I inked the edge with early expresso, and made an owl to go on the front as its an album for my grandaughter as I am a night owl. You will see I have embossed the front of the owl with a starburst and put the heart in the middle as my heart bursts with love for my wee grandaughter. you can see in the last pic that I spritzed it with gold spritz again new in the Dec mini.
Should you wish to order any StampinUp products email me with your order.

StampinUp DSP - Christmas Star

I learnt how to make this awesome christmas star on Crafters Anonymous. I spritzed it with gold spritz but it doesn't show in the pic. This is an awesome star and stands about 10inches high. Made with Jolly Holly DSP from SU

Two new Stamp sets from StampinUp

I got some stamp sets. This one I really love its called "loads of love" and I just love the pick up truck so I made a real quick card for one of the girls at work. Using scrap paper and the corner and border punch from SU she just loved it.

This is a hostess set that I took a few minuts to really appreciate but then when I used it I just loved it. Again made in a few minutes from scrap card as a trial, using the masking technique this set is called "Because I care"
