The last card I made using Stampin Up's
Large Paper Doily has a Christmas theme.
This card came together quickly with the help
of Stampin Up's Snow Festival Designer Series Paper.

Day 4 SU Large Paper Doily

This card has a bright, spring feel to it.
I cannot get enough of the Stampin Up Polka Dot DSP.
It's so versatile for any card.
This card has a simple, delicate feel about it.

Day 3 Su Large Paper Doily

I have followed the same design, makes creating a bunch of cards
so much quicker. I have just changed the papers, colours,
embossing folders etc. For this card i cut the center
flower out of the paper doily and used this as an accent.

Day 2 Stampin Up Large Paper Doily

Here is the next card I made using
Stampin Up's Sizzlits Large Paper Doily.
I have again used Comfort Cafe DSP and have cut the
doily out of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.
The beautiful sentiment is from the
adorable stamp set, Stampin Up From The Heart.
I have punched out the middle of the sentiment
and raised it with dimensionals.

Day 1 Stampin Up Large Paper Doily

School holidays, Spring and beautiful weather.
I love school holidays and I am really looking forward to the next few weeks.
I have been making a few cards using Stampin Up's
new Sizzlits Large Paper Doily.
Once you spend a few minutes popping all the bits of paper out
you are left with a beautiful, delicate paper doily.
So many possibilities.
Over the next few days i will share with you the cards I have
been making. The first card I have used Newsprint DSP
to cut out the doily, Comfort Cafe DSP, Crumb Cake,
Cherry Cobbler cardstock, pearls and a clear button.
Also the stunning new Stampin Up Beautiful Birthday stamp.

Moving Forward Stampin Up

Recently i was asked to come up with some
Birthday cards for young children.
I don't have any children related stamps in my stash.
So I had a look through the Stampin Up 2012-2013 Catalogue
and decided on the Moving Forward Stampin Up stamp set.
It is one of those sets that can be used for various card ideas.
Here is my first card using the set. I made this card for
my nephews 8th Birthday.

SU Midnight Muse

I am growing attached to the new Stampin Up
2012-2013 In-Colours. I have used Midnight Muse
for this card. I don't normally use alot of blues
but I am finding this shade is easy to work with.

September Stamp A Stack

Here are the cards for September.
This month we had a Christmas SAS.
Four designs and we made two of each so we have
a good head start on Christmas cards.
I enjoyed coming up with the designs using new products.
I had help from the Stampin Up catalogues with my designs.
All products are Stampin Up.

Stampin Up Christmas Decorations

I have been experimenting with some new products
out of the Stampin Up Holiday catalogue.
I have made a few decorations and the last decoration
on this post I think I will keep to use instead of
a bow on a Christmas present this year.

Origami Star Decorations

I am trying to get a head start on making decorations
for the holiday season. There are so many
wonderful new products in the Stampin Up Holiday
catalogue that I want to utilise and have on hand
for gifts and decorating my home.
I have recently learnt how to make these Origami star
ornaments and have become totally addicted.
They look wonderful when completed and will last
many holiday seasons as once they are put together
they become quite sturdy.

I made this Origami star decoration out of retired
Stampin Up DSP.

I made this Origami Star Decoration out of an old book.

CS&P Card

In this month's Cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft magazine
I have had the card below published in the Reader's Gallery.
There's lots of great ideas in this month's magazine.
It's a great go to when the mojo has disappeared.

Wedding Anniversary Card

I am happy with the look I achieved with this card.
I wanted elegant but not too over the top.
I have used Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla and Raspberry Ripple
cardstock and all supplies on this card are from Stampin Up.

Launch Lucky Door Gifts

I put these gifts together for my Stampin Up Catalogue Launch.
I had three gifts and pulled the lucky ladies names out of
a decorated tin.

I decorated a clipboard and added a few handmade
cards in the pocket.

Jars are so in now in the decorating world.
I decorated a small & large jar.
Inside each jar i places Dazzling Details, Cherry Cobbler Tulle
and some new ribbon. In the larger jar I also made 3 rosettes and added
them to the jar so the recipient could use them for projects.

Gift Bag Gifts

I put together gift bags for the Ladies that attended
my Stampin Up Catalogue Launch.
Inside each bag i placed the two new Stampin Up catalogues
and some gifts to thank the ladies for coming.
A diary & address book, a coffee bag and chocolates.

I bought 2013 Calenders & Address books.
I pulled them apart out of their original packaging
and made a cover for them out of the
Comfort Cafe DSP.
They are alot wider than this photo depicts.

I made these little gift pockets out of Stampin Up's Two Tag Die.
Inside each pocket I added a coffee bag.

Spring Is Here

It really feels like Spring is here today.
I picked these beautiful flowers out of my
garden this morning. The flowers have brightened
my day and also filled our home with an amazing fragrance.
