Sitting Pretty


Hello and welcome. Today I am featuring a retiring stamp set on my card, Sitting Pretty. Like many of my stamp sets, this one didn't get a lot of use. It wasn't because I didn't like it, it's more because I had so many stamp sets to use and just didn't get around to using it very often. Do you ever do that? Have to have something but then let it sit unloved. Well I decided to show this set some love and made this card.

Isn't this seat just so beautiful. Would you believe I purchased this stamp set just for that seat. Have you ever done something like that?

Bloom By Bloom


Hello and welcome. Today I have a pretty card to share with  you. I think you will be surprised at the stamp set I have used for it.

There are so many cool small flowers in the Bloom By Bloom stamp set.

Climbing Roses


Hello and welcome. Today I have a card to share with you that has been made using a gorgeous stamp set that will sadly be retiring. It is the lovely Climbing Roses stamp set. 

Such a lovely stamp to colour - Climbing Roses.

New Online Class -Needle & Thread


Hello and welcome. Today I am sharing with you my latest online class. I actually released it a few days ago but forgot to let you all know. Ooops.  It is the Needle & Thread Online class and it is gorgeous. Here is a sneak peek.

Incredible Like You


Hello and welcome. Today I have a card to share with you that uses the retiring Incredible Like You stamp set. But when you look at the card it won't be very obvious that I have used that set. Sometimes I like to look at a set and work out a non obvious way to use it. Todays card was the result of that.

Beautifully Detailed Meets Floral Romance


Hello and welcome. Today  I have a scrap page to share with you of my late Nana. She was a very special person to me, so when I recently came across this photo of her, I knew I had to use something very special on the page. I actually used two special products, but more on that later, first here is the page.


Last Chance


Hello and welcome. It is an exciting day here. That's because the lists are out of what is retiring. Retiring products are those products that are not going to be in the new upcoming catalogue. This can be sad as some favourites are going away, but it is exciting too as it means we are making room for some wonderful new products. It's your last chance to own your favourites.

The Shelli Paper Pumpkin Kit


Oh My! I am beyond excited. Shelli Gardner, the Co-Founder of Stampin' Up! has designed a Pumpkin Paper paper crafting box. I absolutely love her style. It is so vintage, feminine, and so so gorgeous. She describes the contents of this kit as "A touch of earthy and elegant spring with lots of layers and textures." 

First Communion


Hello and welcome. Today I have a card to share with you that ended up completely different to how it started. I knew I wanted to showcase some of the retiring colours and also to follow on using the Florentine Filigree stamp set that I had used on a card the other day. I thought that while the stamp set was still on my desk, I may as well use it for another project.

Achieve ombre stamping easily with the hinge step technique and the Stamparatus.

Retiring InColors


Hello and welcome. Today it is time for the Freshly Brewed Projects with the Latte Girls. Our focus this time is the retiring InColors.

Florentine Filigree


Hello and welcome. Today's card has been a long time coming. I have had my eye on the Florentine Filigree bundle for a long time. For as long as the Occasions Catalogue has been in publication actually. But I have only recently purchased it. So this idea for this card has been waiting in my head all that time. I am surprised I still managed to remember what I wanted to do.

Make wonderfully detailed cards easy with the Florentine Filigree stamp set and die bundle plus the Stamparatus.

Dear Doily Simple Stamping


Hello and welcome. Today I have a card to show you that uses the Dear Doily stamp set and some of the retiring colours. I used the same stamp set yesterday but different retiring colours. But today I wanted to also show you how you can make an amazing card with just simply stamping. 

Simple stamping with one stamp set and a couple of colour inks. I used the Dear Doily stamp set and some of the retiring InColors.

Dear Doily


Hello and welcome. Today I have a card to share with you using the Dear Doily stamp set and matching framelits. The card also uses some special colours. I will explain later why these colours are so special, but first here is the card.

This card was made using the Dear Doily Bundle consisting of the stamp set and framelits.
