Stampin Up Hey Chick New Home

Hello Everyone

My second project with The Hey Chick Stamp Set from Sale-a Bration is a New Home card I made for my sister.

She has just moved to live beside the sea on the South coast, and hopefully will have a spare room for me for some summer weekend getaways !

I used some Cupcakes and Carousels design paper on a Calypso Coral card base. The image I stamped and paper pieced with the same paper then die cut and layered with the Stitched Shape Framelit dies.  I cut one of the lace doilies in half for a bit of added interest.
The sentiment is made from the Labeller Alphabet Stamp Set.

This versatile Stamp Set is available to you FREE !! when you spend £45 in either the Annual or Spring/Summer catalogues.

For more information please don't hesitate to contact me.

Please sign up on the sidebar for e mail notifications of my new blog posts. I will be showing you another super project using this Stamp Set on Thursday.

Until then

Happy Stamping

Hey Chick Upcycled Project

Hello Everyone,

Here we are again for the Sale-A Bration Blog Hop with the Pootlers Team

Today we are showing projects that you can make from the free products in the Sale-A Bration catalogue. Every time you spend £45/60 Euros, from the main or Spring/Summer catalogue you get a free product from Sale-A Bration catalogue.

What are they like ??? Have a look at our Blog Hop today and you can see some of them. You can also click on the picture to the right on the sidebar and view the PDF version.

This week on my blog I am going to be featuring projects I have made with the " Hey Chick " Stamp Set.  It's so fun and quirky...I love it !

My first project is an upcycled picture frame I picked up in the Summer while I was out shopping with my sister. We always pop into the Charity Shops and usually end up buying something up with the idea of upcyling it. And so, like you I expect, I have a little pile of "Projects Pending"....

But the other day I knuckled under and made good on this one . It started like this.....

 A rather worn out picture frame with a little twine hanging line and a single peg...it cost me the princely sum of £ 1.99.

So, I cut some card and designer paper , Dapper Denim, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. 
Stamped with the Hey Chick Stamp Set and die cut with Botanical Blooms Framelits
 and after making a bit of a mess......

 I ended up with a rather nice (if I do say so myself) individual piece of Wall Art for my kitchen which will make me smile every morning.

Best of all it cost me practically NOTHING to make apart from some of my existing supplies as the stamp set was FREE !!!

Hope it makes you smile too.

Thank you for stopping by today I hope you enjoy looking at all the projects my teammates and I have come up with and maybe I have inspired you to get going on your own Projects Pending pile.

If you want to join our lovely team, get a catalogue or find out more about Stampin Up just get in touch with me.

Happy Stamping

Enjoy the Little Things with Layering Love

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are well and not too chilly.

As I write this the sun is shining, but it is freezing cold here in Kent. But at least it's not raining !

My project for today was a card I made for a swap group at the end of last year and in all the Christmas rush, I forgot to show you it, so here it is now.

I embossed the sentiment from the Layering Love Set with Gold embossing powder and then decorated with the flowers and foliage stamps from the Jars of Love Stamp Set.

The card base is Peekaboo Peach and the layer is Daffodil Delight. 
I used the same colours for the stamping, along with Old Olive for the leaves and doodled a bit around the edge.

This is such a simple card to make and of course you can use lots of different colourway options.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for stopping by today. As always you can go to the Shop Now button on the sidebar to purchase any of these products. If you need any further information or would like a catalogue please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Just a reminder too, along with the launch of our Spring/Summer catalogue comes Sale-A-Bration which means that for every £45 you spend you can pick an item for free from the mini catalogue.

Until next time,

Happy Stamping

Beautiful You

Hello Everyone,

Today I am taking part in my Stampin Up teams Blog Hop that is celebrating  the launch of the Spring/Summer Catalogue featuring lots of  new Stamp Sets and Papers. So if you have just arrived from one of my teamies... Welcome I hope you are enjoying all the lovely projects.


The Stamp Set I have made my card with showcases the Beautiful You Stamp Set. I personally think that this is going to be one of the most popular sets , lovely stamps, sentiments and so many uses.

The card base is Pool Party cardstock and I used the Definitely Dahlia stamp from the Annual Catalogue in  Calypso Coral. As I didn't want the colour to be too strong I stamped off on a sheet of paper first.

I then stamped the lovely stylish lady from the Beautiful You Stamp Set on the top and layered onto Basic Black cardstock.

I then wrapped some Pool Party Bakers Twine around and finished it off with a little bow, both of these items are from the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishments Kit.

The sentiment also comes from the Beautiful You Stamp Set along with the little background shadow.

I finished it off with some Calypso Coral Enamel Shapes.

Please click on the links below to see all the other Pootlers projects.

Thanks for stopping by today I hope you are enjoying all the lovely creations.


Beautiful You is such a versatile Stamp Set, please feel free to pop over to my shop and buy it now !!

The PDF version of the new catalogues are available to look at in the sidebar, but if you would like a'proper' version do give me a shout. Remember also for every £45 you spend you get to pick a free item from the Sale-a Bration catalogue.

As always, don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like more information.

Happy Stamping

I think not !!  Stampin Up now have the new Spring/Summer Catalogue out along with Sale-A-Bration until the end of March. So we have lots of new Stamps and papers out AND free goodies.


On New Years Day my parents celebrated their 62nd Anniversary...yes... 62 years and still such a loving couple.

I used lots of lovely stuff from the new catty. The background is a sheet of beautiful Falling In Love Designer paper (p51). I used the Congratulations stamp from the Floral Phrases set in the Annual Catalogue (p77) and stamped on a frame from the Cupcakes and Carousels Embellishment Kit (p9).
Also from this kit are the scattered sequins...fun sticking them on...lol

The doilies in the background are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other, very useful, I finished off with a bow in the Gold Satin ribbon and some little pearls.


The PDF version of the new catalogues are available to look at in the sidebar, but if you would like a 'proper' version do give me a shout. Remember also for every £45 you spend you get to pick a free item from the Sale-a Bration catalogue, so head on over to my shop and stock up !
