Envelope Books

Hi Everyone!

This weekend I have been making mostly …. Envelope Books 🙂

They are samples for a workshop at Stampers Grove this Saturday 11th February from 10.30 till 12.30..


This is a great way to use up your envelops stash and as you can see they look great in all shapes and sizes 🙂



Its also a great way for you to use up your jelly plate prints


and also use up all those patterned papers we hoard 😉


and practice zentangle (which I suck at lol)


So if you are in Edinburgh next Saturday and fancy making one, you can call James or Emma to book a space on  0131 221 9440 or pop into 92 Grove St, Edinburgh EH3 8AF


As always, thank you for popping round

Christmas Promise & Wild at Heart Stacks

Hi everyone,

I thought I would record a wee video for you showing the First Edition Christmas Promise and also the Wild at Heart 6×6 patterned paper stacks.

I absolutely love them both, they are absolutely gorgeous,  however, please shop around if you plan to buy them, I paid £8.00 for each stack from Hobbycraft the other day,  and I also ordered more online from Amazon last night where the same 6×6 stacks were £3.99 !!

Hope you found this post useful, I will see you all again soon.

Thanks for popping round

Merry Christmas Notebook

  • First of all I took a sheet of Stampin Up 12 x 12 patterned christmas paper and cut out 2 dirrerent sizes of the snowflake design

  • I then applied some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo glitter glue around the edge of the large snowflake, then the inside on the smaller snowflake and set them aside to dry.

  • The I cut a strip off the same paper, took a Fiskars border punch (treading water) and edged one side, took some grosgrain ribbon and tied a bow.

  • Once the glue had dried on the snowflakes it was ready to assemble ( I put the smaller snowflake on top of the radiator to get the curled up effect)

  • I adhered the snowflakes to the notepad and then stamped “Merry Christmas”

Here is a full list of supplies used for this project :-

  • 1 x Notepad
  • Stampin Up So Saffron Cardstock
  • Stampin Up Merry Moments 12 x 12 Patterned Paper
  • Stampin Up Choc Chip Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Bo Bunny Merry Christmas Stamp set
  • Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Stickles glitter glue
  • Double sided tape, glue dots and zig glue pen
