Christmas Advent Tree Class

Evening All,

I made this little Christmas Advent Tree for my niece Ezmee.

Fancy having a go?

The instructions are over on the right hand side.

I used the medium star punch and the little number framelits with the Merry Moments paper to decorate the front.

Then I filled the boxes with little chocolate treats.

I finished off with a Lindor Mini Bear.

The rest have chocolate robins and mini maltesers reindeers.

These are the products I used

Stampin' UP! On Stage Live Team Gifts

Evening All,

I thought I would show you what I made for some of my Team members that came to the On Stage Live Event in Brussels.  Our Team are called the Bloomin' Buds.

Ok I am a tiny bit known for my covered notebooks, so I sort of thing its expected from me!
I use the hostess set Floral Wings from the Annual Catalogue, which you can earn for placing a qualifying order of £150, you get £15 to spend in any of our catalogues, Who doesn't like FREE stuff.

It just so happens to match with the Butterfly framelits.

The notebook were from Home Bargains.

The designer paper is called Timeless Elegance its all Basic Black, Sahara Sand and Very Vanilla.

Another idea using the Floral Wings stamp set is a Scrapbook Double Spread.

We made these pages last month.  The next scrapbook club is next wednesday.  I do have a couple of places free so if you fancy coming along for a trial, Email me.

The colour combination is Rich Razzleberry, Bermuda Bay and Crumb Cake.

The crumb cake is the corrugated cardstock.

The dots are sponged with the Dots & Stripes decorative masks on page 157 using a finger dauber.

These are the products I used

Stampin' UP! Acorny Thank You Stamp Class.....

Finally managed to get back into my Blog!  I have been locked out of it since updating to Windows 10 on my computer for some strange reason.  My hubbie worked some magic while I have been away so here I am.

We have just been away to Brussels for Stampin' UP! Onstage LIVE Event which was amazing.
More on that latering the week as we aren't allowed to show any news stuff or details until later next week.  Exciting things coming though!

Right then on with the stamp class.

We used the stamp set called Acorny Thank You with the matching acorn builder punch, Stampin' UP! really do think of everything to help with our crafting.

The designer paper is called into the woods which are just perfect for Autumn.  
Haven't all the colours of the trees been amazing this year?

I used the gusset clear bags to make a little, well actually a large treat bag to match the thankful card.

The colour combination for this project is Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Tangelo Twist.

A hint of gold glimmer card was used for extra sparkle with the new gold cord for the tiny bows.

Love the acorn with NUTS ABOUT YOU sentiment, goes perfect with the monkey nuts in the treat bag.

Oh Bless just look at the tiny wooden embellishments, little leaves and on the previous card along the glitter edge, very nice sizes for cards and scrapbook pages.

We are all liking the woodland embossing folder for the embossed background.

I embossed a layer of soft suede with the embossing folder and then fussy cut out all the branches and added them in the same order to a layer of old olive before adding the layers to this gatefold card.
I know!......But I liked the look.

I punched all the bases of the acorns first and punched them out with the whole acorn side of the punch and then stamped the cups or tops of the acorns and used the punch.  I glued them together as this makes them pop in real life.  Its hard to capture that in a photo.

Anyone got any tips on taking photo's using LED lights?  I keep ending up with shadows?
