Tea Room Suite Notecard Holder

It was a friends birthday recently and she loves to give hand made cards. As she isn't an avid crafter I thought it would be nice to gift her a set of cards.

I designed and made this Note Card holder with the Tea Room Speciality Designer Papers.



These papers are so pretty and of course we have matching cardstock, ribbons and  a Memories and More Card pack. 

The Memories and More Card packs have many uses, Scrapbooking, Journalling or for quick cards. I used a couple of these cards on the front of the holder. 

I also used Coastal Cabana and Crushed Curry cardstock to make the holder and decorate the Very Vanilla Note Cards.


 I made the three Birthday cards using some retired toppers with a sentiment from the Special Celebrations Stamp Set.



The three Thank You cards were decorated with a topper made from the Layering Circles Framelits and a Copper embossed sentiment from the Eastern Beauty Stamp Set.





I used the Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack to both decorate the cards and to secure the holder. 

I love the way this turned out and will definitely be making some more and of course you can also provide refill cards.

Happy Stamping

All My Love Designer Paper Card

Wow ! What a fun team blog hop we had on Saturday...39 of us took part sharing fabulous inspiration for the new products in the Spring/Summer catalogue that launched on 3rd January. If you missed it, pop over to Saturdays blog and have a look.




Today's card uses some current, some new and some retired !

The patterned paper is from the All My Love Designer Paper Series teamed with Calypso Coral cardstock. I've used the Foliage Frame Framelits to make the wreath along with Layering Circles dies. The sentiment is from the Hello Cupcake Free Stamp Set. I heat embossed it in gold to make it a bit more special.





The Tufted Embossing Folder gives the card it bit of dimension and detail is added with one of the new Floral Romance Seals and some Flirty Flamingo Ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack.

I have used some retired Designer Paper as an envelope liner and all the little off cuts...instead of debating whether to keep them or chuck them,I have started using them to decorate the inside of my card.



You get a lovely matching insert and no bits left over !

Happy Stamping

Forever Lovely Spring/Summer Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the Pootlers Spring/Summer catalogue launch Blog Hop !





This really is a great catalogue and I can't wait to see all the projects my fabulous teamies have come up with....

I chose to make my project using products from the Forever Lovely suite.


The Lovely Flowers matching Edgelits Dies cut out this beautiful border.


The All My Love Designer Series Paper has 12 different designs.

I used one of the patterned papers for the front of the card and the Lovely Lipstick matching cardstock for the inside of the card so that it shows through the border.

used the Layering Ovals Framelits to make the topper and
 heat embossed the sentiment with Copper Stampin Emboss Powder and  added some Enamel Dots. I was so pleased with how this turned out that I made another with one of the Tea Room Speciality Designer Series Paper



Don't forget that until 31st March for every £45 you spend, you can get a free item from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue. 

So....... if you purchased the Forever Lovely Bundle, (the Stamp set and Edgelits I have used here ) you could get 8 FREE 12"x 12" Foil sheets in Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick that would match this project beautifully.

Please hop around all the other projects by clicking on the names below for more inspiration.

Rooted In Nature Happy New Year 2019

Hello My Crafty Friends

Well 2018 comes to a close and time to reflect on the year just past and the one to come. I don't as a rule make resolutions as I rarely keep them and every day is a new start!

But I do have some plans to put in place, some decluttering to do...not sure quite how that's going to work in the craft room and maybe a career change.

But for the time being I will share this card with you. It was for a crafty friends birthday and I used the lovely Natures Poem Designer Paper along with a stamp and die from the Rooted in Nature Bundle. I also used one of the Petal Pair Embossing Folders and a sentiment from Stitched All Around.

I'm not a purple fan but I am rather taken with the lovely returning colour Blackberry Bliss especially matched here with Petal Pink.




Of course the New Year brings with it the new Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer catalogue with lots of truly wonderful new products, and along with that the annual Sale-A-Bration with free goodies. I'll be back with more details soon.

But for now I wish you a Happy New Year, may it bring you lots of crafting opportunities

Happy Stamping

Picture Perfect Party Paper


Use it up and wear it out !

As the current catalogues come to an end soon, I decided I had to use up all my lovely retiring papers. The Picture Perfect Party Papers are 6 x 6 and I had cut into them for another project and had lots of 2 1/2" strips leftover.


I used the Picture Perfect Stamp Set along with some glimmer paper.

I just love these photograph style papers, so easy to make striking cards.

The last chance for lots of items from the retiring catalogues is 31st May, make sure you don't miss out.

Happy Stampin
