I had been looking for videos that share some of the basics about Stampin’ Up! but couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for. Then I had the thought, “why not make some myself?”. So I jumped waaaaaay out of my comfort zone and made, not one, but two videos.

One video explains the three types of stamps that Stampin’ Up! sells and in this one I share one of my favourite things about Stampin’ Up!, coordination:

My kids have been having a giggle at me. They think it’s pretty hilarious that I have a youtube channel. Apparently I’m not cool enough. hehehe

Hopefully you’ll find it entertaining as well when you pop over and have a look. Leave a comment letting me know what you love about Stampin’ Up! and while you’re there, subscribe to my channel so you get to see more videos as they go live.

Have you been wondering what the Occasion Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration are? Well, let me explain:

Stampin’ Up! has an annual catalogue that is current for one year and to compliment the already awesome range they have, they release two smaller catalogues during the year. This one is called the Occasions catalogue because in contains products you can use for any occasion.

Sale-a-bration = free products! It is the BIGGEST promotion of the Stampin’ Up! year. To qualify for the freebies, make a purchase of $90. It’s that simple. But it gets better, if you host a party during Sale-a-bration you can earn MORE Stampin rewards than at other times of the year. Stampin rewards = free products. But wait, there’s more; join as a demonstrator during Sale-a-bration and you’ll receive two stamps set FREE. So, freebies all round. You gotta love that!

Any questions? I’d love to answer them. Comment below or send me an email.

Christmas Heart


Another easy DIY project. For these Christmas decorations you’ll need air-dry clay, a heart shaped cookie cutter, stampin’ up! stamps, something pointy (to make the hole) and string.


Hang on the tree or use them to jazz up your Christmas gift wrapping.

These garlands are super cute and super easy to make. Cut out card or paper shapes with punches and dies, then run them through a sewing machine.


I punched the circles first with this one and then punched the stars from the middle of the large circles.

The are light-weight so all you need is a blob of blu-tac on either end to hold them on the wall  it makes these a great decoration if you don’t want to mark your walls with hooks or spend money on those removable sticky hooks.


Don’t have a sewing machine? Fold a paper doily over a piece of string and peg a star onto the doily. You could even just glue the star on if you don’t have any of these tiny pegs hanging around. So simple and a great craft idea to make today with the kids.

Happy crafting 😀

I’m still loving this colour combination for Christmas cards. After my first two cards (no. 1 and no. 2) in these colours I continued to use the Stampin, Up! colours of basic grey and whisper white. Together they make any colour stand out and especially in this case the real red ribbon which pops right out along with the merry Christmas sentiment and amazingly it doesn’t overpower the Christmas tree.


I used dazzling diamonds glitter on the Christmas tree again but as before it isn’t showing up in the photos. It really is very pretty.

This card is a remake of a card from a couple of years ago. Another simple, subtle card that could be made in even more colours and it would look just as gorgeous. Which card do you prefer? Or would you choose a colour combination of your own?



After creating my subtle Christmas card yesterday I had another idea for the same colours and wth a similar style. After a few adjustments to the mental picture I had, this is what I created.

What do you think? Should I try and create another?
