Thank you card & Treat Bag

Wednesday 28 December 2016 Somerset, UK

I hope you have all had a lovely Christmas break and are looking forward to welcoming 2017 in a few days time! I'd like to shout out a big welcome to all my new subscribers and followers who have followed me this month!

If you are visiting my blog for the first time, hello! My name is Kim and I live in the UK. If you live in UK, The Netherlands, Germany, France and Austria, you can purchase Stampin' Up! products from my online shop. If you are visiting from further afield, a very warm welcome to you! I hope you find some inspiration here today. You are more than welcome to follow me through any of my social media channels and keep up to date with my craft creations.

Today I am taking part in Kylie Bertucci's Stampin' Up! Blog Highlight and I am using new products from the forthcoming Stampin' Up! Spring Summer 2017 catalogue which is available to order from on 4th January 2017!!  Our theme for this highlight is encouragement as we all need a kind word said to us to build us up.

Voting is now live over on Kylie's blog and I would love it if you could click here to see what everyone has made. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop, if you like my project, I would very much appreciate you voting for me.

My project features 2 new products from Stampin' Up! Spring Summer 2017 catalogue plus the new Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies which should be back in stock and available to purchase again mid-January! 

First up we have a lovely new designer series paper. Its called Falling In Love and all of the sheets are pastel colours and are such lovely soft patterns. Aren't they gorgeous? I've used the sheet on the very far left in my project today. I bought myself two packs in the pre order available to demonstrators as I can see myself using this DSP a lot. 

The next new product I have used are the new Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies. There is a coordinating stamp set which you can purchase with the thinlits as a bundle at 10% off. I haven't used this today but I am sure I will be soon. There are 5 dies included in this set which include 4 different dragonflies and a cute little bee!

Now over to my project, I've made a thank you card and coordinating treat bag. I love a matching set! This bag is exactly the same design as my previous blog post, a design that I actually created (my first original!). 

Take a look by clicking here to see my Christmas version, you can see the shape a little better on this link. This treat bag has been very popular with my subscribers and followers - its now in my top 10 blog posts (currently it's at no. 5) and my blog has been live for almost 2.5 years. 

I've had lots of requests to publish instructions on how to make it so I am currently considering my first YouTube video - eeek! I'll give it a try but if I am not confident with it, the very least I will provide is a pictorial. Make sure you subscribe to my blog to be notified of my blog post when I release the instructions. I plan to do this very soon.

Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to head over to Kylie's blog to vote!
