"GIFT PACKAGING" Theme Stampers Showcase Blog Hop...


Good afternoon and welcome to the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop. 

 I feel very privileged to have been invited to join this amazing creative group.

You may have joined me from Ange or starting the hop here.  Sit back and enjoy lots of creative projects with the theme of Gift Packaging.

I love making gift packaging.  I love to see the excitement in people's faces when they spend those first few minutes just admiring the packaging rather than the gift inside.

Today I am sharing with you a project which I have created for an upcoming online class.  We are using the lovely Whale of a Time suite and are creating this little backpack.


The backpack is held closed by creating a little buckle on the front.  The ribbon you see on the top can pull through to the back so it looks like a backpack, just a bit of fun.  Here is the back view so you can see what I mean.


I love to try and use up all the offcuts when I can, so the closure is made from the offcuts of card and DSP and the fish are cut from the offcuts of the DSP used on the front and back of the backpack.

I loved creating this project and the Whale of a Time suite is so bright and cheerful.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and I am now going to pass you on to Leonie who I am sure will have something beautiful to share with you.

Happy Craftin'

Ink & Share July Scrapbook Hop - Punches...


Good afternoon and welcome to the Ink & Share Scrapbook Hop for July.  This month we are creating our layouts using punches.  You may have joined me from Lisa or starting your journey here.

We have such a lovely selection of punches and I have chosen to highlight four of them in my project today.


I have used some amazing new Designer Series Paper soon to join us from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.  It is called Gilded Autumn Speciality DSP and being a speciality paper it has some lovely foiled images.

I have used the Tailored Tag Punch to create my background


I punched them out from the DSP and randomly arranged them on my page.  I then mounted my picture and cut out the word AUTUMN using the Playful Alphabet Dies and these were glazed using the Shimmery Crystal Effects.


This picture was taken in Thetford Forest at the beginning of the Autumn so there is still quite a bit of green on the trees but I love this photo of my boy 'Jeffrey' just surveying his surroundings, deep in thought.  The corn was cut from the new Brushed Metallic cardstock, the leaves are from a set of three punches called Autumn punch pack and the stamps are from a new set called Autumn Leaves, all of these will be joining us in the Autumn/Winter catalogue from 4th August!







The items are taken from a complete Suite called Gilded Autumn Suite and I can't wait to share some more projects with you.

I hope you have enjoyed my project and I am now going to pass you on to Cindy who I am sure has something gorgeous to share with you today.

Happy Scrappin'

3D Paper Trimmer Blog Hop July 2020 Topic: Xmas in July...


Good morning and welcome to the 3D Paper Trimmer Blog Hop.  This is my first time joining in with this hop and I am very excited to be here.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love to make anything 3d.  I love the satisfaction of creating something from flat card!  I am often asked about my thought process for creating 3d items and honestly, I am not sure, all I do know is that if I have an idea (usually in the middle of the night), I jot it down and draw my vision on paper first.  Once I have done that I visualise it as if it were flat, like a flattened box if you like, I then set about playing with measurements to see what works, sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't, sometimes it's thrown in the bin, sometimes I will not give up until it is exactly how I want it!

The project I am sharing with you today came to me in the middle of the night, as predicted, so I scribbled it down and the next evening set about creating.  This project went together reasonably well with only two versions of the lid being made lol!!

The box is designed to hold gift tags, in this instance, christmas gift tags.  These would be great for christmas fayres or to give away to friends and family.

The box has three sections, two sections for gift tags and a section in the middle where I have wrapped the Braided Linen Trim and dyed white baker's twine around a dolly peg.  The top is made using acetate and the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder.




Here are some close ups of the tags.  I have used the brand new Have a Hoot stamp set which will be available to order from 4 August.  It is such a cute little set with 6 owl images and some hoot inspired greetings.






I stamped all the images using Staz On permanent ink and used our new Water Painters to colour them in.  They require little colouring so are quick and easy to make.  The top of the tag is made using the Delightful Tag Topper punch.









And of course I had to make a matching card.



I hope you like my project today you can see how I made it here.



You can follow the list of hoppers below and please leave us all a comment, we love to hear from you and receive feedback on our projects.

Happy Craftin'
