Last weekend was Onstage Local where we celebrated Stampin’ Up’s 30th Anniversary. I was able to meet with lots of other demonstrators, got sneak peaks of future product releases and of course, took part in the time honored tradition of swapping!
I had so much fun putting these mini exploding boxes together as my swaps, and whilst the concept is nothing new, I never get tired of the element of surprise they bring!
My mini treat boxes are designed to hold one Ferraro rocher.
Such a fabulous onstage event, I’m already excited about the next one! Thanks for stopping by today 😘
I had been wanting to use my takeout treats bundle forever and I’m so glad I finally got the excuse I needed by combining them with the brand new stunning and limited edition snowflake showcase!
Gray Granite has become a firm favourite for me so I decided to use this colour for my box base, with fresh fig, gorgeous grape and soft seafoam cardstock for my snowflakes and the panels behind them.
The snowflakes were cut using the brand new Snowfall Thinlits Dies, and I stayed with a tone on tone look for the snowflake decoration on the box. Once die cut, I sponged white frost shimmer paint onto the snowflakes. I’m so in love with the metallic/frosted look the cardstock takes on once the shimmer paint has been added – so beautiful and Christmassy!
Just love how these boxes turned out – so pretty and I think they would also work well at Christmas time for wedding favours or table decorations for Christmas Day.
The stunning snowflake showcase which consists of two beautiful stamp sets and the coordinating Snowfall dies will be available to purchase from my online store from tomorrow, 1st November for one month only! I will be bringing you more projects featuring this beautiful set in the coming weeks.

Although I’m not a 3D crafter by nature, I absolutely love making my own gift packaging whenever I can.
I wanted to create a lidded box to hold a gorgeous tube of Neals Yard hand cream. The perfect Christmas gift! The Frosted Floral Speciality DSP is just beautiful and the shimmery effect of this wintery floral paper makes it very special to work with.
I also created an insert for the box to hold the tube in place.
I decorated my box using the gorgeous label Dies from the Frosted Bouquet framelits Dies along with some silver metallic edged ribbon.
Finally I added a few frosted and clear epoxy droplets. Oh how pretty!
So in love with this paper and I can’t stop using it!

I’ve just returned from a fantastic weekend retreat with my Stampin’ Up! team mates and Upline.
It’s always good fun to get together, and it was doubly fun as I recently promoted to a Silver Demo and was able to enjoy a special celebration dinner on the first evening.
I decided to use the Treat Time Bundle for my team swaps. I love all of Stampin’ Up’s 3D project dies, and the fact you can put together multiple treat holders quickly and easily, and without having to worry about measurements etc.
I created almost 50 of these gorgeous treat holders using a mix of the Frosted Floral Speciality DSP, the Petal Promenade DSP and the Tropical Escape DSP.
So easy to put together and they look fab with bakers twine. How cute are the heart toppers?!
I filled my treat tubes (AKA sour cream containers) with little packs of sweeties 😋 but individually wrapped chocolates would also work well xx
Today is little Maisy’s 1st birthday and I was delighted to be able to make the party favours for this special occasion. Once I’d decided on Wood Crate favours I knew I wanted a blushing bride and berry burst colour way. I stamped the pretty floral stamp from the Wood Words stamp set over my blushing bride cardstock before using the matching Wood Crate Framelits Dies to cut two crates out and adhering the pieces together.
I love the versatility of this set and the fact that you can use the gorgeous Wood Textures DSP to create that rustic farmers market look or pretty up your crates by simply stamping over the cardstock in whatever images you’d like. The stamp set and dies are available to purchase in a bundle from the annual catalogue with a 10% discount.
