Stampin' Up! LAST CHANCE SALE and Retiring Items


The 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue will be coming in June, and to make way for all the lovely new products that is coming with it, it's time to say goodbye to some favourites! Stampin" Up! have now put up their Last Chance list of items that will either be retiring or will no longer be bundled in the next catalogue.

Please make sure you check this list out as some of the discounts are huge, 75% off! How good is that. Also if you have a wish list and the retiring items are on it, please get in quick as they sell out fast. The Circle Punches are going, so are the Stitched Shapes dies and my favourite 3D Subtle embossing folder.

If you don't have the Circle punches, or the Stitched Shapes you may regret it. I love mine and would never let them go. 

Here is a link to the Last Chance Items in my Online Shop.

If you want to see the list  then take a look here at the pdf

If it is all too confusing please email me, I'd hate you to miss out.

Note Card Box

 After being asked to show how to make different styles of boxes, I then created a box to hold our Note Cards and envelopes.

The box was decorated using the Dandy Garden DSP. I managed to get 3 items out of one piece of 6" x 6" DSP. I cut 11/2" off the bottom and then cut the remainder in half. One half I decorated the lid of the box the other half went on the front of a note card. The 11/2" strip was cut in half and adheared top and bottom to another note card. I then added the sentiment strip in the centre.

BOX BASE - Start with a 93/8”x 77/8” piece of card.
1. Box Base - Start with a 93/8”x 77/8” piece of card. 

 2. On the long side score at 1”, 2” , 73/8”, 83/8”

 3. Turn to short side and score 1”,2”, 57/8”, 67/8” 

4. Cut up each corner to the second score line, you will be cutting a L shape out of each corner, leaving a tab. 

5. Fold on all the score lines, to make a crisp edge and assemble by tucking the corner tabs in and folding the edges over the tab. Repeat this on each edge, the tabs tucked in on each side. 

 6. BOX TOP - Start with a 91/2”x 8” piece of card. On the long side, score at 1”, 2”, 71/2”, 81/2”, Turn to short side and score 1”,2”, 6”, 7” Follow the cutting and folding instructions for the box base assembly. Decorate as desired.

 We're now into February, so that means Sale A Bration will be ending at the end of this month. So take advantage of this time and add to your card stash.

There is always plenty of reasons to stamp cards for friends, neighbours, co‑workers, and anyone you know who could use a little cheering up and encouragement. We recommend keeping your stamping simple. That way you will have tons of cards to give away in no time!

In fact, if you CASE (Copy and Share Everything) the cards you see here, you’ll be halfway there! Interest has been added to these easy‑to‑make cards in three ways: 

Adhere Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper strips at different angles for the You Did It card and stamped directly on this same Designer Series Paper with the Cue the Confetti and Whale Done cards.

You can come up with other ideas by checking social media boards or by thumbing through the catalogue.

So don’t wait! Take advantage of this fabulous Sale‑A‑Bration offering, and don’t delay, shop online now!

Enjoy Creativity

 Using the FREE Sale A Bration Flower & Field Designer Series Paper, try and  Step It Up!!!

I love this time of year with Stampin' Up! as it is Sale‑A‑Bration  It is the perfect time to shop and earn fantastic Sale‑A‑Bration rewards. For every $90 spent you can choose a FREE item. These cards are made using the FREE Flower & Field Designer Series Paper. 

Whether you are a beginner, casual or avid crafter this paper can be used in creating some beautiful cards.


To create this beginner card, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink on a layer of Basic White Cardstock, then adhere the stamped cardstock to the Mint Macaron card base. Stamp the heart image in Flirty Flamingo ink using the stamp-off technique. Then, punch five banners from our Flower & Field Designer Series Paper using the Banners Pick a Punch. Adhere the banners to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals and tie with a Linen Thread bow. Done! You have the perfect, easy card to let someone know you care.


Add a little extra detail to the second card by spritzing with Bumblebee Classic Stampin’ Ink Refill using the Stampin’ Spritzer. Embellish the banners with flowers die cut using the Wreath Builder Dies, and add 2020–2022 In Color Enamel Dots. Die cut the sentiment using the Stitched Rectangles Dies, then finish with a fussy-cut, stamped heart popped up with a Stampin’ Dimensional. So pretty don't you recon!


For our avid crafters we need a card with the LOT!! Adhere additional flowers fussy cut from Designer Series Paper, plus some Vellum Cardstock. For an extra-lavish look, layer on a die-cut heart and a fussy-cut sentiment, then amp up the artistry even more with a lacy edge made using Flower & Field Designer Series Paper and the Budding Blooms Dies.

Stepping up your cards is so much fun! Start simple and go big. Mix and match until you find the look that is right for you. Why not try this and show me what you come up with on my Facebook Page

3 x 3 Embossed Box

I was asked how to make different types of boxes. Well usually I make all my boxes with the Envelope Punch board, however I wanted a challenge, so set about to make a box to hold our 3x3 envelopes and also another style to hold our Note Cards and envelopes.
This box is made using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool and can be decorated with layers of card and DSP or possibly a belly band decoration, or embossed as in this one. 

Many different decorative ideas. Use Christmas DSP and make them into Christmas card boxes, the measurements for this box accommodates 4 cards and our 3"x3" envelopes

Start with a 9x53/4” piece of card.

On the long side score 31/4”, 41/4”, 71/2”, 81/2”

Turn clockwise to short side and score 1”, 41/4”, 51/4 

With the 1score line on the bottom and the 1/2” score line on the right. Cut up each score to the first score line. When you get to the 1/2” score line, cut up to form a V  

Turn and working from the right on the long side. Cut up to the second score line, this forms the box closure. Cut along the rest of the 1/2” score line up to the 1/2” score line, cut this up to form a V. You will have formed a tab. Cut up each of the remaining score lines. 

Fold on all the score lines, to make a crisp edge and assemble box by adhering the tab to the other edge. With this size you may be able to emboss, before assembling, however any bigger and embossing would not be possible. You will need to decorate another way. 

*** All products including adhesives, can be purchased from my online shop.

These are the cards created to go into this cute little box.

Memory Keeping Made Easy


Memory keeping does not have to be a chore. In fact, it can be a fabulous experience when you use our Memories & More Card Packs! All you need is a Basic Black 6" x 8" (15.2 x 20.3 cm) Album, Variety Pack 6" x 8" (15.2 x 20.3) Photo Pocket Pages, and your choice of Memories & More Card Packs.

Filling the album pages is easy! Simply insert photos, then add double-sided cards, specialty cards, and embellishments from the Memories & More Card Pack for a super-simple way to preserve your memories.

For extra fun, you may want to decorate the album cover. As you can see with our masculine Hello Adventure Album, we fussy cut images and sentiments using World of Good Memories & More Cards. The torn edges on the Designer Series Paper add a rugged texture—or you might want to add a little ink spatter using a Water Painter and ink to give it a “grunge” look and feel.

To create the Beautiful Baby Girl Album, we fussy cut flowers and die-cut letters (using Playful Alphabet Dies) from the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper. We also stamped floral images on the Designer Series Paper for added interest. The result is pretty and feminine and oh-so-easy to achieve!

We hope we’ve inspired you to get out your shoeboxes filled with photos and give them a new home! And remember to share your results on my Facebook Page,. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
