My Top 5 Christmas buys – 2017

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – My Top 5 Christmas buys – 2017

Today we have free postage so its a chance to add some ‘I can’t live without’ items to your cart.

These are my current favourites but as I love pretty much all the contents or both of the current catalogues I may well have changed my mind tomorrow!

1. Get those Christmas cards ready in a jiffy!


If you saw my post yesterday you would have seen this year’s stunning project kit which makes 20 cards and is just £18. The cards are great quality and come with sumptuous gold liners for the envelopes included in the pack. whats not to love?


2 Dec the halls!

I just love the fact that some many of the products in the seasonal catalogue have multiple uses, but the Tags and trimmings bundle is my top buy in this category.  With the ability to use this die to quickly make multitudes of multicoloured stockings. This is a true value for money investment piece that you will want to use over and over again. You can make advent calender’s, tree decorations, table favours……. The sky is the limit!

3. Wrap it up!

For me its the labels that form one of the biggest elements of a my gift wrapping planning and the very versatile Merry Little Labels which we used it at our recent retreat completely fits the bill.


Our attendees loved this set with its coordinating punch and apart from copious amounts of gift labels we have been using the stamps to make cards, wine bottle wraps, and the wrapping paper itself!


4.0 Gift giving 

I love gift giving and if its totally handmade all the better. These Mini Pizza boxes fit the bill for flexibility and we have been using these  to gifts packs of mini cards,  gift cards, jewellery and home made fudge and peppermint creams.


I have a little stack of these pre decorated at the ready to grab for a last minute gift or I may use them as table favours on the run up to the big day!


5.0 Memory Keeping

Finally I have to say the Memories and More card pack is the perfect way to showcase all the fabulous Christmas memories that will accumulate on your phone over the festive season. Get those photos printed and preserve those memories forever. But if you cant wait,  this pack is also multi adaptable and makes great gift tags and  quick card fronts


Obviously this is just  a small selection of the fabulous products in the catalogue

Christmas in July – Swing panel card

Stampin Up demonstrator – Crafty Little Minx – Christmas in July – Swing panel card

Happy first of the month to everyone.  Today’s card is final card from my recent class ad probably the most complicated. Having said that once you break the elements down its a really simple concept. DSCN3872

On the front I cut out the window frame before embossing the rest of the piece with the brick wall TEF to create a log cabin effect. I then loosely fussy cut another piece to create the stack of logs under the window DSCN3871

The window piece has the sponged scene attached to the back and when you open the card you start to see the effect. DSCN3870

Inside I used more of the elements of the new Carols of Christmas bundle which ia available to buy from today. Yes that’s right TODAY! DSCN3876

The bundle includes these really cute decorations and you can die cut the same shapes which I raised with the new mini dimensionals. No sticky snips anymore. My class attendees loved them. DSCN3873

So did you spot the sweet little holly sprigs? They were so easy to make and once I started I just couldn’t stop stamping and die cutting. Bu then again its a Christmas card so can you really have too much holly?

Purchase your stamp set now and receive a full set of instructions to make all of the cards featured from the class.
