My favourite punch yet!

The Two Step Bird Punch - Only £15.50

This was my first card using this - don't you think it's adorable.
This punch is also very versatile, as I will be showing you very soon. However, as it is the season most associated with the Robin red breast, I used this loads on Christmas cards and for my next favourite project:

Christmas Shortbread Treat Box
I used the Ornament Punch as the background and stuck the red breasted Robin on the front. I saw a similar box on youtube and because I wanted it to fit a good few shortbread biscuits, I enlarged by an inch.

These were for some of my old neighbours, but as a first try, I was very pleased with these. Oh and the biscuits were delicious too! 
If you would like instructions for this, I can send you them, just drop me a line.

My very first cards using Stampin' Up! Punch and stamps!

Hi everyone, finally my first cards using Stampin' Up! Ornament punch and Contempo Christmas Stamps.
 Lots of people commented on the little saying 
'Christmas is love with all the trimmings', 
they thought it was very appropriate.

 This is where I got hooked and made two orders in the space of one week. First was the Stampin' Up! Ornament Punch and the Contempo Christmas Stamps, which I bought as clear, that way I only needed to buy 1 clear block (just to start with). The card and ink was my own. Then I caved in and bought the Real Red and Old Olive Classic Stampin' Pad to make the 3D bauble effect.

Finalising my blog.

Hi there,
Well, after watching a few 'How to..' clips from YouTube I have finally decided on a skin for my blog and set up the rest (font colours etc...) to match. If you ever need any help, be sure to ask as I can direct you to the YouTube videos I watched. I hope you all find it attractive, just like the Stampin' Up! products, feedback is welcome!

My first blog...

I have taken the plunge, after a lot of thinking, to join Stampin' up and become a demonstrator. At the moment I feel like a teenager having a crush on one of my male college teachers - only this time it is the Stampin' Up products that I just cannot stop thinking about. And so my mission is to share my crush!
