For the first Card & Cuppa sessions of 2020, I reached for the fabulous new Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set. Lovely Lily Pad is a FREE Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set and is one of the Reversibles range from Stampin’ Up! As you can see, the detailed outline stamp is one side of the stamp, with the
The brand new Mini and Sale-A-Bration catalogues may have arrived, but today I’m taking you back to a project I made for a December teenage Birthday. This bright project uses the Gallery Grunge Stamp Set for the background and stripes, and a sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays Stamp Set. I’ve teamed Granny Apple Green,
Happy New Year! I hope you’ve had a wonderful break. It’s my first day back at work today after the break, and I’m looking forward to sharing new products with you. As it’s the new year, it’s also Happy New Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration (SAB) time. SAB is the BEST time of the Stampin’ Up!

This Bundle is perfect for children (of all ages!) and I love using the Brights colour family with it. For this project, it’s a combination of Poppy Parade, Mango Melody and Granny Apple Green.
As many of you know, I’m a huge fan of Rocky Horror and have been attending various shows of the current UK tour. I made this card for the lovely gentleman who has been playing Frank-n-Furter for his Birthday. It’s based on this project from my Mostly Men Papercrafting Class. I’ve used a Real Red
At last week’s Card & Cuppa Class, the attendees made these beautiful butterflies. The project uses the fabulous Butterfly Gala Stamp Set and co-ordinating Butterfly Duet Punch. I chose a background of Soft Sea Foam as it is a lovely pale colour that works well with lots of other colours. Background leaves and the sentiment
The final project of the Mostly Men Class was this easy Stamparatus Card. This project was the quickest of the 6 and it’s all because of the Stamparatus. If I hadn’t added the ribbon, or the extra sentiment, it would have been completed in about 2 minutes maximum! The key to this project is using
