Celebration Card using the Delicate Details Stamp Set that you can choose for free during Sale-a-Bration. Hurry - offer is only applicable until 31st March and while supplies last

There's less than 3 weeks left of the biggest and best Stampin' Up! promotion of the year called Sale-a-Bration. For every £45 you spend you can choose a free gift from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogues and if your order exceeds £200 you will earn an extra £20 in Stampin' Rewards! Why don't you have a browse of these catalogues to see what you could choose for free with qualifying orders between now and 31st March 2017.

I made this card using the Delicate Details Photopolymer Stamp Set which you can choose for free when you spend £45 during Sale-a-Bration. You get 5 stamps in this stamp set as shown in the image below and I've used 2 of these in my card. They were really easy to line up together as they are photopolymer and you can see exactly where you are stamping.
To finish the card I've used the sentiment Celebrate You from the Birthday Blast Clear Mount Stamp Set from the Spring/Summer Catalogue 2017.#

The stamps and colours I have used for this card were inspired by my good friend Sasha Reade - thanks for providing the inspiration Sasha!

Please do get in touch if you have any questions about this promotion, want to find out more about Stampin' Rewards or if you would like to place an order. 

If you would like to know more about joining my team and how you could receive a fully customisable starter kit containing £130 of product for just £99 and 20% discount on products you purchase from Stampin' Up!, please let me know, I'd be more than happy to explain it to you.

Floral Boutique Gift Bag Swap & My First YouTube Tutorial!

Tomorrow I am attending an event that my upline Michelle Last has arranged for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators in her downline. I'm really looking forward to it as I've not see my good friends Baz and Sasha since November and I can't wait to have a catch up with them. Of course I am looking forward to seeing everyone else and also to do some much needed crafting!! Michelle designs the most beautiful projects and its really nice to sit back and make something that someone else has designed.

I made a treat bag in this style back in December and I had lots of lovely people comment on my blog and email me asking for a tutorial. I am pleased to say that I have finally plucked up the courage and made a YouTube tutorial - I hope you like it and please do let me know by liking it or subscribing to my channel.

I designed this treat bag myself, I think its quite unusual as it has a square base and curved sides. Its super quick to make and its the perfect size to hold a few treats. From one pack of 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper, you can make 48 of these bags!

To make this bag you need a 6" x 6" piece of Designer Series Paper and score as follows:
  • Score at 1 3/8"
  • Turn paper clockwise
  • Score at 1 3/8" (only to the score line)
  • Score at 2 3/4"
  • Score at 4 1/8" (only to the score line)
  • Score at 5 1/2"
Once you have done this, grab some scissors and some tape and click on the link further down below to watch my video to see how to make this gift bag.

You can click here to go to YouTube to watch my tutorial or you can click on the play button below.
