#Holiday Home gets scalloped

Hello everyone.

#Holiday Home and the #scallop tag topper punch

Today I am going to show you a couple more of the demonstration pieces at last week’s craft fayre.
I love doing craft fayres and meeting so many amazing people.  Not to mention getting them to stamp and seeing their delight when the image comes out perfectly every time.
Do you remember that yesterday I showed you the box with the cute flying Santa.  
Today I am showing you the cute gift tags made to go with this box.
I have used very vanilla and old olive cardstock.  These are a great vintage colour combination.
Again the inks were Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.
Using the tree from #White Christmas and the santa from Holiday Home I stamped my images.  Matted them onto the old olive.
Next I popped them into the Scallop tag topper punch and created my tops.
The cardstock measured 3 7/8ths” x 1 7/8th” for the very vanilla
The old olive was 2″ x 4″
Here’s the tags.
 

Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow when you will see my next piece as a guest designer for Sunday Stamps.

#white christmas meets the Box Maker Board from Stampin Up

Morning everyone,

#WHITE CHRISTMAS MEETS THE BOX MAKER

In today’s post I am going to show you a cute little box that I was demonstrating at a local event.
If you would like to see a demonstration of this I will be doing demonstrations on the 29th and 30th November at the Rural Living Show in Taunton.  Why not pop along and say hello.
You can play with the gorgeous Stampin UP products and see for yourself why they really are a must.
Anyway heres the cute little box.

I cut my paper to 10″ x 10″ and then punched out the box following the instructions on the board.
Once I had done that I then laid it down flat and got out my Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler inks.

The stamps sets used are White Christmas for the trees, and Holiday Home for the flying santa. (Isn’t he cute)
Once stamped simply fold your box up and secure using the tabs.  Easy.
Ingredients for this box:
Crumb Cake Cardstock
Cherry Cobbler Inkpad
Old Olive Inkpad
White Christmas Stamps
Holiday Home Stamps
All of these are available through my shop here:
shop now
Whilst in the shop why not add this week’s not to be missed weekly deals.  I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
Take care, big hugs

Its beginning to look a lot like christmas lights ……….

Morning Crunchies.  Your UK Stampin UP Independent Demonstrator here.

How are you all today?   Lots to tell you today.

Firstly why not come and see me at the Chestnut Buttons Christmas Exstravaganza  on Sunday at J24, just off J24 of the M4 Nr Bridgwater.  There is a large Christmas Craft Fayre.  I will be doing demonstrations and make and takes all day.  You can come and join in the fun.  There are also lots of other stalls to see, so why not get your christmas shopping off to a great start…….

Weekly deals change again today.  Here are this week’s

What an amazing array of deals.  Want to get your christmas stocking fillers done for your crafty family and friends.  Why not get them a journal, or some scrap book papers and what about that lovely stamp set.  
I know the triangle punch will be falling into my basket.
So why not hop over to my online shop and get yours today.
So onto today’s card.
I am still loving the White Christmas stamp set and but wanted my trees to have fairy lights.
After all whats a tree at Christmas without fairy lights.
So here’s what I came up with.
Aren’t these just so cute.
I have used the tree stamp, and then using the Stamp N Write markers have added the lights to the tree.
I have sponged the background with soft sky and then stamped the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler.

The matts and layers are Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.  Lovely Christmas colours.
Thanks for stopping by.

All is calm except my nerves ..

Hi everyone.  Lisa Cornwall Stampin Up UK Independent Demonstrator here.

Yep, everything was very calm except for my nerves.

As you know from yesterday’s post I attended Stampin Up Convention in Brussels at the weekend.

I had been asked way back in August if I could do a table decoration display using the All is Calm suite featured in the Autumn/Winter catalogue.

I was asked to make place settings for four people to include cutlery holder, name plaque, napkin ring, place mat, table favour boxes and lastly a candle display.

I was very honoured and humbled to have been asked to do this, but at the same time very nervous.  This would be one of the main displays and I so wanted it to be right.  Not to mention the fact that Shelli Gardner, of the So Shelli Blog and founder of Stampin UP! was going to see it.  (By the way there are pictures of me on Shelli’s Blog today.  Simply click the link above to see)

Anyway here is my lovely make.

My table all set up.

The Candle Display      

The Curvy Keepsake Heat Embossed Table favour Box

  

 The Gorgeous Napkin Ring Holders

Table Place Names

Table mats for each seat

The Menu

A Close Up of the flowers on the Candle Display

And lastly the ever so cute Cutlery Holders.
I was absolutely thrilled with the way this looked and am putting together a class for this.
I will be holding the class online, as well as in post format and at my classroom
Please let me know if you are interested.
Don’t forget there is only 2 more days left to join and get a free pack of paper every month for six months.
I would love to welcome you to my team and to be able to share all the wonderful things that being part of Stampin Up! Uk and convention have given me.

just walking in the rain and the ………………. sun (hopefully)

Morning everyone.  How are you?  Sorry I didn’t post yesterday, but I was out and about with the kids and the dogs, and then I was with the lovely Nicky last night playing with the wonderful new products from the new annual catalogue.  
Anyway I was up early again this morning, and have walked the dogs.  This is part of our walk along the river.  It was taken on Saturday morning and the colours in the hedgerows and along the river bank are so pretty.  They remind me of the lovely colours shown above.  There are hues of orange and reds and pinks in the foliage along the banks.  I find the walks very relaxing.  They give me time to reflect as well as plan my next creative project.

With these colours in mind, here’s a sneaky peak of something I am working on at the moment.
Its made using a single stamp set, and a matching punch, alongside a set of framelits.

You will be able to see the finished item tomorrow.  Any ideas as to what set I am using?
Anyway its Wednesday again, which means that its time for a new set of weekly deals.  There are some great bargains to be had this time …………
Check out the gold and silver foil.  Amazing value.  Perfect for Christmas.  
Want to create texture in your backgrounds then what about these two sets of embossing folders.  Super cute.  
And tape it ………. I love this set.  Its super super cute.
Here’s a simple project using this fab stamp set. 
How about the cute heart framelits.  Get ready for Valentines and weddings etc with this great set at a great price.  You could create a nesting hearts card using lots of layers of DSP.  Would love to see what you come up with.
Don’t forget the two great deals ending this week.

BIG SHOT AND BIG DEALS
don’t forget about the great deals in this promotion.

Colour tools …..

Hi guys,  

I don’t know about you, but if my desk or workspace is not tidy I find my creativity takes a wander and disappears.  
My ink pads are stacked neatly in their ink pad holder, my pens are in their holder, but my sponges and daubers were all over the place.  
They all got mixed up, colours became duplicated and messed up, so I decided to do something about it.
A quick trip to a local DIY store and this was the result …
So now all my colours are easy to find.  Divided into sections, with daubers and sponges neatly arranged.  
And although I’ve been crafting for years, and a demonstrator for 18 months I still find the colour coach an invaluable tool.
If you struggle with putting colour ideas together or are looking for new colour combinations then the colour coach is an amazing tool.  It’s available from me or any other demonstrator.  
Want to know what a tidy desk has achieved ……
Here’s a sneak peak …..  Check back tomorrow to see the full project ….
Any ideas what this is.  And isn’t that stamp gorgeous ……  It’s a hostess stamp.  One of the extra value special sets that only hostesses can get.  To be able to get this or one of the other sets simply host your own workshop, and have a great time, and earn extra special stamp sets.  
To book simply give me a call or email me.
