Blog Hopping!

I’m having a go at a “blog hop” with some of my amazing fellow Stampin’ Up demonstrators! The idea is for us to share with you and each other some of our ideas and inspiration for some of our favourite items in the current Spring/Summer catalogue!


There’s so many beautiful things to choose from, but I have totally fallen in love with these ladies in the Beautiful You stamp set. These are the samples from my classes this week, I hope you love them as much as me. There’s so many different techniques you can use with them, and these are just a few!

The Designer Series Paper I’ve used throughout the projects is the Blooms and Bliss set from the Annual Catalogue, the Stitched Shapes framelits are a must-have item to add that extra touch to your projects (I’m using them on nearly everything at the moment!)

The gorgeous shower of flowers is from the Thankful Life hostess set (ask me how you can have it in your collection too, it’s so pretty!)

The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits were used to create the patterned bag, perfect to slip a small bar of chocolate into!


If you fancy joining one of my classes, I schedule them as events on my Facebook page @elliescardclub so you can add yourself in or just let me know 😀

Happy blog hopping, I hope you enjoy the journey! Xx

Ooh, I love a bargain!

I just wanted to share this kit with you today as it has got me very excited! It’s actually a retired product which I found in the Stampin’ Up clearance rack, but for £8.30 it was too good to ignore! The original catalogue price was £21.75!

There’s 18 canvas pennants to string into a banner with a full alphabet of letters and numbers 0-9 as acetate stencils which can be cleaned and used again and again. It’s would be a brilliant finishing  touch to a party decoration or an unusual gift if you made it up for someone. The colours and options are limitless!

It’s only available while stocks last, so if anyone is interested I can place an order this weekend, just let me know before 8pm on Sunday xx
