Stampin' Up Sizzix Stocking Die

Thought I would show you what I made a few weeks ago with the new Stampin Up Sizzix Stocking Die which is exclusive to Stampin' Up... I was lucky enough to play with someone's die along with the new Snowburst embossing folder!

We made these fab stockings with a box in the middle...  I love how they can stand up on their own thanks to the box in the middle.... I plan to make a few to give as gifts for Christmas with sweets or a gift card inside!

The colours aren't great but this is SU Cherry Cobbler & SU Old Olive and the Holly is a new Sizzix Die called Holly & Swirl

16th Mini Book

Well I thought today I would post a mini book which I made a few months ago for Paul's Nephew's 16th Birthday. We were set a challenge on a craft group that I am part of to make a mini book and everyone that made one got a prize.

I thought it was a great gift to give to his nephew for an important milestone... my main trouble was that I always struggle with male related things so this was a real challenge for me!!

Papers are DCWV guy stack which I have to say I love how they match with the SU colours!

I really enjoyed making this book and his nephew loved it a lot of the photos he had never seen before so he really enjoyed looking through it.... phew!!

Pop Up Butterfly Card - Happy Birthday Paul's Nan!

Well it's been a very loooong time since I last posted... nearly 11 months... ooops... I have been crafting on and off... things have been a bit up and down at home as Paul has been quite seriously unwell and I think it's partly that which has kept me away... he's still not 100% and there is still a lot of uncertainty on the future but we are trying to keep positive.....

Anyway I wanted to try to get back into blogging again to record some of the things I have made... this is a card for Paul's Nan who's birthday is today.

It's a pop up circle card and I have to say I love making these and giving them... I have made 4 now and the response is always really good.

I've used mainly all stampin' up items as I am still addicted to all things SU!!!
