Delightful Daisy Suite Preview



I travelled down to the Kent coast yesterday to visit my Sister. 

It always lifts my spirits to be beside the sea and it was such a beautiful sunny day and I was lucky enough to be able to stroll along the beach.

 One of my other favourite things to do is to sit with someone as we craft and chat and put the world to rights !

paperjay Crafts, Daisy Delights, Calypso Coral, Stampin Up

I think the card matched the lovely day. 

I used the new Daisy Delights suite, with a fabulous set of Designer Paper, the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and the Daisy Punch. I also used some of the new cross-stitch ribbon in Daffodil Delight.

As always the Designer Papers co-ordinate with a selection of the Stampin Up colours and with this card I used Calypso Coral.

This suite is available from the 1st June in the new Stampin Up Annual Catalogue. ....next week !! If you would like a copy, please get in touch.

Happy Stampin

For the Birthday Boy


It is my oldest Grandsons Birthday on Sunday, and I have made this card for him. 
I made quite a few cards folded in this way a few years ago and saw a similar type card recently and thought I would try some more to show off Stampin Up's matching Designer Papers.

Paperjay Crafts, Up and Away DSP, Balloon Adventures, Stampin Up


I have used the Up, Up and Away Designer Paper Stack from the Sale A Bration Catalogue which has now retired and the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set which will be retiring at the end of the month.

I made a 6"x 6" card base in Whisper White and made a fold in the front panel of the card at 3". This then folds back.

I made two matching layered squares starting at 3"x3" and reducing in size and then stamped on the sentiments in Night of Navy.



Glue the inner square on first and then attach the second layer to the front of the card (only the left half) lining it up to match the inside one.


Hope that made sense....I think these cards make a nice change and somehow make the cards themselves seem bigger !

Got another one of these on the go with a sneak peek of some new designer paper that I will share with you next week !

Happy Stampin

Urban Underground and Beautiful You


Todays project was made from retired product, retiring products and a Stamp set that is carrying over to the NEW catalogue.


Paperjay Crafts, Beautiful You, Urban Underground DSP, Delicate Details


I don't know anyone who doesn't love the Beautiful You Stamp Set and I am so pleased that it will be in the new catalogue and I can make more lovely cards with it.

I used a black card base along with one of our retiring In Colours,Watermelon Wonder. I teamed this with one of the papers from the Urban Underground Designer Paper Set. This paper is in a suite of more masculine stamps and dies in the Spring/Summer catalogue but I found that some of these papers work well as a stylish background.

I stamped one of the lace borders from the Delicate Details Stamp Set at  the top and bottom of the paper and layered up the image with the Stitched Shapes Oval Dies. I added one of my favourite sentiments underneath,suitable for many occasions.

The new Stampin Up catalogue will be released on 1st June 2017, full of lovely new stamps and paper. I have my first batch and if you shop
with me one will be on its way to you shortly. If you are new to Stampin Up and would like to receive a shiny new catalogue please get in touch.

Check It Out...




Following on from my post on Wednesday I would like to share with you the final two cards I made for my Grandson to go in a pack to give to his friends.



Paperjay Crafts, Party Animals DSP, Balloon Adventures , Reverse Words, Stampin Up


Again I used the Party Animals Designer Paper Collection and the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set. With this card I also used the Reverse Words Stamp that was available for free during Sale-A-Bration.

Paperjay Crafts, Party Animals DSP, Love Sparkles Stamp Set, Stampin Up



This card features a sentiment from the Love Sparkles Stamp Set. 

The papers and stamp sets I have used on these cards are all retiring on the 31st May. 

I would hate for any of you to miss out on getting them either before that date or before they sell out. There are also lots of products that have been reduced. So head over to my online shop via the "Shop Now " button in the side bar and have a look under "Retired Products".

Use it Up....

Hi Everyone

The other day I dropped my little Grandson off at a birthday party. He happily went into the local village hall clutching his card.....and...hang on ..a shop bought card !!?? What the...??

Is it just me or do us crafters find that friends and family never remember to ask us to supply them with handmade cards ? 

So, with that in mind I went home and was inspired to make some birthday cards to give to my Grandson so that he has a little supply for his friends.



As I am on a mission to use up my retiring designer papers I got out the Party Animal paper and used it with another retiring product, the Balloon Adventures Stamp Set.

All Stampin Up papers are double sided, and just by layering up a few different ones and adding a sentiment you can make quite a selection based on one design.


This card used the same paper and stamp set along with Balloon Punch which is staying with us for another year.

I love to make cards but I love more that I can share them.

Happy Stampin

So Long, Farewell...

Posting today some birthday cards I made using some of my retiring paper and stamps. 

Paperjay Crafts, Penned and Painted, Watermelon Wonder

The cardbase is made from Watermelon Wonder cardstock, this is one of the In-Colours that has been around for the last two years and is now being retired. I made my own background paper from the fabulous Penned and Painted Stamp Set and  the sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments Set.
Lastly the lovely flower is from the Botanical Blooms Framelits.

And as I always try to do I made the same card in a different colourway.. another retiring colour Mint Macaron.

Paperjay Crafts, Penned and Painted, Mint Macaron

So sad to see all these items going but more lovely new stuff is on the way soon.
If you would like to add any of these to your stamping stash head on over to my online shop and check out the retiring products list. There are some bargains to be had but they are selling out quickly.

Happy Stampin
