Stampin Up Calendar Project

So I made this project in May but as usual other things got in the way. This is my version of the Stampin Up Perpetual Calendar Kit, made using the Perpetual Calendar Photopolymer Stamp Set.

If you wish to buy the stamp set Here I will provide the PDF calendar sheets free in PDF format for you to decorate, once the sale has gone through my Stampin Up shop.

ScanNCut Cards made with basic shapes

I challenged myself to make a simple card using a basic shape that is in the SNC machine, the card I made is the hexagon card and the video is


Once I had made that I made another using the butterfly also from the machine.

Two very simple quick cards, both made with pre installed shapes from the SNC and a little extra decoration from some rubber stamps, basic white/coloured card, paper and adhesive.

What do you think?

If you would like to buy any Stampin Up craft supplies please visit my online shop link on the left sidebar, the butterfly stamp is from the Perpetual Calendar set and I have another project to show you soon with that.


Squeeze Top Box

I found this design on the net but the instructions were in German, anyway I thought I would try it out, so here it is.

You just squeeze the top section inwards and it opens up, cute or what?

I will share a video for instructions soon.

Stampin up card stock, designer series paper and basic pearls used for this project all available from my online shop Here

Hexagon Box

Years ago I made a hexagon shape box for the Craft Robo it was a simple straight box, but I recently saw something like this on Pinterest or YouTube I cannot remember which could have been both anyway I thought I would make a cutting file using ScanNCut Canvas, so this is my prototype and cute I think?

It was a fairly simple process although I forgot to add a glueing tab at one point, but did realise in the end, so this may be a video in a few weeks.


I’ve cut this in Stampin Up Kraft card and used SU designer series paper from a paper stack and used the thank you rubber stamp from the Lotus Blossom stamp set.

This was 6×6 but could be made any size with SNC.

Stampin Up Weekly Deal

Just a quick note to let you know that Fast Fuse is on a weekly deal on my Stampin Up shop here

Just select Shop and click on the Weekly Deals link on the left

This stuff is super sticky and great for sticking card, boxes, 3d projects and its acid free so good for scrap booking too.

The red sticky strip adhesive thats popular is retiring soon, there will be replacement coming in June but if you struggle with trying to remove that red tape backing or any tape backing from the sticky strip, then fast fuse may be an option for you.

There are a couple of embossing folders and some ribbon too on offer.

Stampin Up Elegant & Bitty Butterfly’s

So recently I posted two cards that I am hoping to demonstrate at a workshop that I am trying to arrange, these were the cards, I made the first one using the Petite Petals  from Stampin Up and with the punched out flowers I made the second card and used my favourite “field of sky” stamp as a background.

On Sunday I saw that Sam from Pootles Cards had posted a similar card made using the Elegant and Bitty butterfly punches, with Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and she had kind of fused the two design ideas,  hers was made based on a card her son made I thought it looked cute  so I decided to give it a go.

Here’s mine I used Blackberry Bliss and Blushing Bride ink pads for mine and once again the field of sky stamp as I don’t own Gorgeous Grunge yet.

I also added an insert inside mine as I don’t like writing directly onto the inside of a card.


What do you think, I think it’s cute and could be used for any occasion. 
All the supplies used can be found in my online Stampin Up shop link in the side bar or at the top of the page.
