Happy New Year everyone!

The challenge was to come up with a design using products from the new seasonal spring/summer 2019 catalogue from Stampin Up.

Examples of handmade Christmas cards to inspire you

Hello there!

Did you know that Britons send approximately 16 Christmas cards each a year? That's a lot of cards especially if you are planning to make them yourself.

With only a few weeks left till Christmas, you might think you don't have enough time to make Christmas cards yourself and you might be tempted to buy them from a shop. Quick and easy.
But do you realize how much more meaningful would a handmade card be to someone you love?

Let me show you a few Christmas cards I made recently. I hope they inspire you to sit down one evening and create something beautiful for your loved one(s).

I designed my first card within an hour. I had an idea in mind and managed to turn it into reality straight away. This doesn't happen very often I must say... :) so I felt quite pleased with myself. This is what I came up with:

To make this card I used quite a few Stampin’ Up! Products, especially the amazing designer series paper from the 2019 Autumn/Winter catalogue. What I managed to do as well, I turned the patterned paper into the shimmering paper! Love the effect! here is my short video tutorial:

If you would like to know the exact supplies I used to make this card, and the other 2 projects -  I have listed them at the bottom of this blog.

Another card in the box I made recently has a beautiful stamp I heat-embossed on patterned paper. I used wide white organza ribbon, small silver embellishment, and red glittering poinsettia flowers.

In the last few days, I also managed to make a beautiful gift box. I used the amazing window box thinlits die from Stampin' Up! and covered it with Festive farmhouse Designer series paper again. Love this patterned paper, as you can see I used it in all my 3 projects.

I hope you like my 3d Christmas projects.
Thanks for stopping by.

Pootlers Blog Hop - Unique gift bag using goodies from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue 2018

Hello :)

I am so excited to be taking part in Pootlers Blog Hop for the first time.
Together with my crafting friends, we are celebrating the launch of the new Autumn/Winter catalogue by Stampin' Up!

Below you will find my project made using amazing goodies from the new catalogue. 
Hope you like it.

What's unique about this gift bag is the embossed window. The swirls match perfectly my Christmas theme here. What I also love about the bag is the paper - it folds in from the sides making it look like some kind of a curtain. Reminds me of a curtain in a theatre, and that adds a bit of a posh look to the display behind the embossed window. I can imagine a  mini prosecco  bottle in there haha

I didn't want my gift box to look too busy so I only attached a few embellishments to the design. The Santa sticker, happy Holidays sentiment (die cut), ribbon bow and clear epoxy droplets.

I cut the window out using a craft knife but you might as well use a die to cut out the desired shape.
The window measures about 7cm x 12cm ( 2 3/4" x 4 3/4")
I love the embossed swirls and curls in this window, it gives so much more character and fun to the gift box, 
don't you think?

The bow was quite unexpected really. I had two ribbons which I wanted to use but every bow I tried to make turned out not to my standards :P 
So I cut them into pieces and this is what I created. 

If you like my project keep an eye on my blog and Facebook page as I will be sharing with you a video tutorial in a couple of weeks. 

It took me a few weeks to finally decide what to use from the Winter/Catalogue goodies. There are so many amazing new items you will love.
