Kinder Chocolates with Reindeer Shaker Tree Ornament

Thank you for joining me today for another Old Meets New project.  This is such a cute little box and the Seasonal Chums Reindeer is adorable, I’m chuffed to bits that this carrying over.

I made this Ribbon Slider box to hold a box of Kinder Chocolates, I think this could be given to any adult or child.  I have made the tag removable so it could be hung on the Christmas Tree, to be honest I couldn’t bare the thought of it being thrown in the bin.

OnStage Solihull Swaps – Ribbon Scissor Charms

Last weekend Hubby and I went to Solihull for the Stampin’ Up! OnStage Local event which is held twice a year.  Demonstrators who attend get a copy of the upcoming catalogue and play with some of the new products.

For the event I made 50+ swaps and I got to swap and chat with lots of demonstrators. I came home with a bag full of swaps that I can use for inspiration.

 

For my swaps I made Ribbon Scissor charms with the Shrinkles Shrink Art sheets, these are great fun to play with.  They reminded me of when I was at school and I used to put crisp packets in the oven to shrink them and make key rings and badges with them.  Did you do that too?

Thank You Dragonflies Card

My project today is a really quick and simple Thank You card.

If you follow my blog you may have noticed how much I love Berry Burst, I’ve been using it a lot lately.  As I’m sat here writing this post the UK has had the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia and it’s a miserable day outside but the bursts of colour in my craftroom are always so uplifting.

Oven Gloves Covered Notebook

Thank you for joining me today.  This is a busy time of year for crafters, we are making projects that we can give as Christmas presents and many of us are making them for craft fairs too.

Notebooks are really popular but the pretty covered notebooks they sell in the shops are so expensive.  I always have a notebook close by, they are all around the house and there’s always one in my handbag.

Craftroom Organisation – Embellishment Holder

Today I have a holder I made for my Embellishments and Metallic Thread. They were all stored in different drawers and I was fed up having to keep going backwards and forwards every time I needed to embellish something.

After watching a Dawn Griffith video where she cut the Acetate Card Boxes in half and put sweets inside I had to find out if the Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals, Rhinestones/Pearls, Doilies etc. would fit and they did.

Craftroom Organisation – 6″ DSP and Memories + More Cards Holder

Thank you for joining me today for the 2nd part of my Craftroom Organisation series.

Stampin’ Up! have DSP stacks that coordinate with their new Memories and More cards and the best way for me to remember to use them is to store them together and have them where I can see them.

Craftroom Organisation – Heat Tool/Glue Gun Stand

When I show my craftroom to fellow crafters they always tell me they love the way everything is organised.  I have spent a lot of time getting it to the point that it works for me and it’s still a work in progress.

I showed one of my team members some new storage I had made and whilst we were chatting the idea of doing a craftroom organisation series came about.  I hope you will find some of my storage solutions helpful.

Simple yet Stunning Screen Card – Pretty Label Punch Showcase

Thank you for joining me today for the 2nd part of my Pretty Label punch Showcase.  If you missed part1 and would like to see it click here.One of the reasons I didn’t want the Decorative Label punch to retire was that I loved the look the punch gave to the bottom of a screen card.
