Happy Easter!

This bunny shadow box was made with the Sweet Little Something stamp set, and the soon retiring Flirty Flamingo colour!

The 2016-2018 In Colours will be retiring at the end of May, so mows the chance to stock up!

I also used a product that’s arriving in June- the fabulous Stamparatus makes positioning stamps a breeze!

More on mini albums, with Stampin’ Up! Memories & More cards

Hiya crafting lovelies! I promised some more details on my collection of mini albums in last weeks post, and here they are! All are made with pocket scrapbooking Memories & More cards. The Saleabration freebie pack, Sweet Soiree, to be exact!

The large one in the bottom left is a zig-zag card! The two ‘inside’ pages are trimmed down by about a quarter inch and each is attached to the other with a little card stock bracket…

My small green one says ‘Collect moments, not things’ on the front, which is very inappropriate for me as I do both avidly! This is one of my favourites, and so simple! Each page is bound to the one next to it just using washi tape!

My other small ones are bound with ribbon. For the one on the left I simply scored a half inch from the edge of each card, punched two holes through them and bound them with the delightful Berry Burst ribbon.

The other one I wanted to use rings to bind it with, but the ones I had were too big, so I went with ribbon again… this one is unusual too in that photos stuck back-to-back make up some of the pages themselves~

I placed a page of vellum between pages where two photos would be testing against each other- a fun place to write too!

For the final fold-out album I have a really quick tutorial for you-

I hope you enjoy making these simple and fun brag books too!

More fruity fun with Stampin’ Up! Tutti Fruitti papers!

I just adore these Designer Series Papers and matching stamps! (Not to mention the punches and the washi tape!)

I’ve been on a roll with the magic slider cards, and the little outline stamps from the Fruit Basket stamps make a perfect design! If you’d like to have a play with these stamps, I find them in the store here

This next card was a CASE from fellow Aussie Kelly Kent, if you haven’t already, check out her blog! Lots of fabulous designs~

Blast from the past- Ice Cream Shop with Stampin Up! Cool Treats stamps

I discovered this post in my drafts from last year, and while the embossing folder I used has sadly retired, all the other (delicious products used are still with us!! (They can be found here if you’d like them for yourself)

I had a lot of fun (and some frustration) making this Ice Cream Shop gift box for the display at On Stage in Brisbane in November!


The box is featuring the Cool Treats stamps and matching freamelits, and closes with a magnet so it can open and shut.


As well as the delicious ice cream stamps, I’ve used the bohemian embossing folder to add some texture to the bottom section of the ‘shop’! The window frame also pops out further thanks to the foam strips~
