Did yow know that Stampin' Up! has some wonderful supplies that are not so much crafty but practical crafting supplies.

One of these supplies if the Stampin' Up! Grid paper - I love it! 

Not only does it have cm but also inches (I craft in both measurements) it is great for trying out stamps on, using it to stamp off (let's you get a lighter shade), keeping your surfaces clean and I am sure so many more uses!

It comes in a stack of 100 and is 11" x 17" (28 x 43cm)- so will last for a good number of crafty projects.

Global Stamping Friends - Extraordinary Hop

Welcome to an extra special hop. Yes, there's a new catalogue on the block. In the UK we call it the Autumn/Winter catalogue, but in other parts of the world it's called the Seasonal catalogue. Different names but same AMAZING items!

Demonstrators were able to pre-order from it a while ago - one of the perks! Unfortunately I didn't so I'm still waiting for my order. Good news however, as of the 5th September everyone can order - hooray!

So, I decided to share the items I love the most.

Halloween isn't huge here, but the kids do like to decorate and trick or treat - good excuse for sweeties I think.

So my favourite bundle is this - 


I LOVE it.

I mean isn't this box just the cutest?!

 Plus the dies match!!!

Hoping to share some real life projects with you soon.

Please hopping over to see Tricia's wonderful project from the new catalogue.

Global Stamping Friends Anniversary

WOW!  Look where one little Facebook post on the 25th July 2016 has led.

It is hard to believe that what started off with me wanting to take part in a bloghop and asking on a Demonstrator Planning page if anyone wanted to join me has lead here- our 2nd Anniversary.

We've had people come and go over the past 2 years and some who have been here the whole time. But that is a the beauty of Stampin' Up! you get to make great friends.

Please get yourself a cuppa and some cake, after all it is a celebration, and sit down to enjoy the projects.

My project used the new Puzzle Pieces Thinlits.  I LOVE this set and have lots of great ideas for it.  It comes in a bundle with a matching stamp set but I've just used the dies for this one.

This is one of the framelits from the set, a heart.   You not only get the puzzle pieces but you are left with a heart cut out - clever!

The sentiment is from the new Tropical Chic stamp set. I masked pieces of the full sentiment which was " with much love and thanks" to get just the love.  This also comes in a bundle with matching dies and I can easily see it becoming one of my go to sets.

I really love the colours used navy and lemon lime twist with whisper white, although I am sure that lots of other colour combinations would be amazing too!

I hope that you have enjoyed my project, please hop on over to see Lisa's  amazing creation.

Global Stamping Friends - Home Decor

Welcome to the Global Stamping Friends Bloghop.  We are a group of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all around the world - yes Stampin' Up! is a great place to meet new friends.

This month we are focusing on Home Decor - that's right something a bit different, but that Stampin' Up! products make so easy.

I made a name sign for a bedroom door. It was so simple to make. I used the thick card base that comes with the DSP papers for the base, stamped on a piece of whisper white to create my own background and best of all?  The large letter dies!  They are a godsend to anyone who can't find a name in the shops - like me often.  I added these to a plan piece of whisper white and then placed that over the handcrafted DSP.

Having seen it I thought the back needed something to so I added the IN and OUT pockets with a a space for a pencil.  What I didn't envisage is that my youngest son would love it so much he has already been writing notes and putting them in the OUT pocket for me to read.  I am so pleased that he likes it as it will really help him with his writing and reading,. Yes, I too have written some notes already and he is really enjoying his new room decor.

I hope that you have liked this little project and am I'm now inspired to create individual name signs and IN OUT pockets for all the kids!  

For more inspiration hop on over to Lisa's blog to see her amazing creation.
