Gift Box Punch Board make

Good Morning! Did you tune into It Takes Two last night?? If you missed it then it will be on the BBC iPlayer for a week and it is also on You Tube if you search for Strictly Super Fan Quiz!! It was a very surreal experience seeing myself on TV and hearing how Yorkshire I sounded, but I did try and do my “posh Yorkshire” voice! They did edit lots out and the final round at the end did end very abruptly, we actually answered another 2 people each before the round ended! Have to say that Myles who I was up against was very unlucky and he is such a lovely guy. We have stayed in touch which I am so thrilled about! I will let you know when the Semi-Final is going to be aired as I went back down to London to record it last week!

So onto Stampin Up! Here is another project from our Tuesday Club this week, a cute gift box made with the Gift Box Punch Board. It started with a piece of the Kraft card stock 9x9 inches and I stamped it all over with the lovely star from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set.
 I saw a cute little tag like this on a project that the lovely Erica Cerwin did so I just had to CASE it! Thank you Erica! The band around the box is just a piece of 12x12 cut at 2 inches and then I Scallop Tagged bot the ends and tied it together.
So a few little reminders for you as this is just a short post! 

We have our joining up offer! You can get your hands on £130 worth of Stampin Up goodies for only £74.25 and then earn an extra 5% back on all orders in December! If you have been thinking about joining now is the time to do so! Let’s have a chat!
I am also still placing orders for the Christmas Wish List service or I can make Gift Vouchers for you too! Just get in touch with me and I will arrange it all!
Back tomorrow!

Tuesday Club make

Good Morning! Firstly, I wanted to let those of you who have been following my Strictly journey, know that I will be on BBC 2 tonight at 6.30pm in the first round of the Strictly Super Fan Quiz. Lots of people have asked me if I will be dancing and the answer is no, I am taking part in a national quiz to find Strictly’s Biggest Super Fan and tonight’s round is the Quarter Final against a lovely guy called Myles. I have bet so many wonderful people throughout this surreal process and am excited to see it tonight plus I’m a little nervous too!!! Do hope you can tune in and cheer me on!

So back onto crafting! Here is one of the makes from last nights Tuesday Club. I have to give a shout out to the lovely Caroline van der Straaten who kindly allowed me to CASE her design. This card uses the Envelope Punch Board and you literally make an envelope and then cut off one of the flaps and add an insert and a belly band!
I used traditional colours of Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Crumb Cake and Whisper White along with some of the paper from the Trim the Tree DSP stack. The Festival of Trees was my stamp set of choice for this card.

Love love love the Cherry Cobbler ribbon from the Autumn/Winter catalogue, its perfect for this project.
Hope you like todays make, all the supplies used are detailed below

Just a couple of reminders about things whilst I have you here!


I also still have my Wish List service running too, please get in touch to get a list.
And finally we have our AMAZING offer for joining Stampin Up
£130 worth of products for only £74.25 until 2nd December only!!! What about an early Christmas present to yourself?
