Crazy About You

Happy Monday everyone. How was you're weekend? Mine was great, lots of time with Mr Ding and some time crafting too. Perfect!

Reason for the Season

It's Friday! Which can mean only 1 thing, wine! Oh no sorry, I mean "Back To Basics". Today is all about 2-Step stamping, where you have stamps that you stamp on top of each other to create dimension, various coloured sections or a scene.

Embellished Ornaments

The minute I saw these dies in the autumn/winter catalogue this is what I wanted to do with them! I finally got around to it for today's Tool Time video.

Happy Scenes

Happy Scenes, is exactly what you get with this stamp set. I loved playing with it when I visited my down-line Jacki a few weekends ago.

Square Pillow Box Thinlits Dies by Stampin’ Up!

OMGosh! How cute is this little guy? Rhetorical question really. To quote my American friends, "he's so stinking' cute!". He's from the Christmas Cuties  stamp set, and he has 2 friends!

Gift Box Punch Board

Tool Time! Each Wednesday I'm going to bring you a tutorial video on using one of the many great tools from Stampin' Up!. As the Gift Box Punch Board is in the Weekly Deals this week, I thought I'd start with that!

The mass producing of Christmas cards has started in the Ding household, and I have a new video for you to show how I go about getting a lot done in a short time...

Snow Place

I am loving this cute new stamp set Snow Place. The matching dies make it so easy to create cards, tags and gift boxes using the images.

Festival of Trees

I know we're all loving the autumn/winter catalogue, but I didn't want to neglect the main annual catalogue. After all we did get Christmas back with this year's edition!

Garden in Bloom

Seeing as it's the end of summer and the dark nights are drawing in, I thought I spread a little sunshine with today's post. It's never too early to start on next spring's birthday cards is it?

Snow Place

Have you seen the new autumn/winter catalogue yet? It's amazing! No, seriously. I know I say this every time, but this is the best yet.

Celebrate Today

I am loving this stamp set! So glad I chose it for this week's 5 cards 1 stamp set.

Celebrate Today

I thought I'd go back to trying 5 cards in 5 days from one stamp set, seeing as I only lasted a week last time I tried this. Any bets on how long this will run for this time?

Watercolor Wings Z card

I'm on an alternative fold cards kick at the minute, just in case you haven't already noticed. So when I came a across this Z fold card on Pinterest using Watercolor Wings & Butterfly Basics I just had to case it.

Watercolor Wings Pop-Up Book Card

Whilst looking through the Splitcoast Stampers tutorials yesterday I came across this one. Loved it, and thought that looks easy enough to covert to UK card size, so I had a go.

Flower Patch Card in a Box

I first saw these card in a box cards 5 years ago on Zoe Tant's blog. Then a few years ago Monica did a tutorial video and they took off, popping up everywhere. I had a go at them and made Mother's Day cards with my youngest niece for my mum & her's.

Amazing Birthday

How rubbish am I? I failed my own challenge to myself in week 1! So much for 5 cards using the same featured stamp set over 1 week.

Amazing Birthday - Day 3

I've really enjoyed playing with this stamp set, and love the simplicity of this layout.

You've Got This

This is a card a made about a week ago and forgot to blog! Where exactly my head has been, I'm not sure!

Guy Greetings

Father's Day is almost upon us. I haven't had reason to make a card for this time of year for sometime now, but after how well received my cards were at work for Mothering Sunday (most the mum's of my work colleagues got a hand stamped Stampin' Up! card), I thought I'd make some to take in for Father's Day.

Floral Wings

I really don't know where to start with the new catalogue. There is so much I NEED! You know what that's like, right?

Box 1 with the Gift Bag Punch Board

As promised, here's the video for my box using the Gift Bag Punch Board... This is the easiest way to make the box. I'll post another video later in the week for the other boxes.... Enjoy!

Gift Bag Punch Board

We all got very excited 18 months ago over the Envelope punch board. Lots of clever people and me came up with ways of using it to make boxes too, why spend the money for something that does one thing, right?

I have a video for you today, showing you how I created the background for this layout.

More Sprinkles of Life

I am loving this stamp set and used 5 different sketch challenges to create this little set of 5" square cards. It's rather amazing how much I get done when I enter my craft room at 8am and don't switch my PC on until 1pm! 
The joy of this year's Ronald McDonald House Charity stamp set Sprinkles of Life  is that you can do so much with it, like...

Sprinkles of Life

Every year Stampin' Up! brings out an extra special stamp set for the Ronald McDonald House Charity, they've been partners for a long time. This is the third year we've had a stamp set for this cause in the European catalogue, and oh boy this year's is a great one!

Technique Tuesday

OK, so it almost isn't Tuesday, but I made a tutorial video before going to work this morning and was determined to post it on a Tuesday! The video is of the colouring technique for this card.

Scrap Sunday!

I promise to get more organised and visit more often! But for now, it's another Scrap Sunday already!

Scrap Sunday

Better late than never I always say! This was layout 1 for May's class, but the papers were on the retired list and have sold out!...

Scrapbook Saturday

 Wednesday was my monthly scrapbook class, where we make a double and 2 single layouts. It was a full house and we had a lot of fun.
