Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Thank You Gifts PLUS Tips for the Cookie Cutter Bundle!

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Thank You Gifts PLUS Tips for the Cookie Cutter Bundle!

Oh aren’t these just so cute!

As soon as we started getting sneak peeks of the new Autumn Winter catalogue, I knew exactly what I wanted to make as this month’s thank you gifts. I had already planned to make little notebooks and had bought them in ready, but the minute I saw the Candy Cane Lane suite I was in love. So much so, I actually cut and prepared the bases of these notebooks that very same day and I knew it would be another 10+ days before I even had the products in my hands!

It’s such a whimsical and happy suite and these notebooks were designed to show off the beautiful papers and the adorable Cookie Cutter bundle. How cute that we now have a gingerbread man punch?!

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Thank You Gifts PLUS Tips for the Cookie Cutter Bundle! Watercoloured Reindeer

I did have to test out the reindeer on a few different mediums, but the 4 characters I chose to use are my favourites.

In the video I go through all 4 of them and how I ended up colouring the reindeer in the way I did and on the paper that I used (watercolour)

It’s a bit longer than normal, but I hope that’s okay!

And you know what, I think everyone must have known that I was sending these out, I’d prepared 150 of them but very late on Thursday night, I was to be found in my office making another dozen because I needed 162 of them! That’s more than I’ve ever sent out!

I hope you like the video and here’s just a small selection of them too.

    Hi Sam, loved the video (Fennel as well). Chuckled to myself while I watched it. 20 minutes later. – who cares. I could watch you work all day long. Cheers from. Melbourne, Australia. xxx

    I love these! You did a beautiful job. I have to chuckle at myself though. I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it. But watching your video I thought to myself “a bear? don’t remember seeing a bear”. Since I’m from Canada, in my head I associated the bear’s body with a child bundled up in a snowsuit lol. Guess I have two options now lol.

  9. Rosemary Smith says:

    So now because of your beautiful project I need to order this bundle! You are definitely a fantastic inspiration for all of us crafters! And hello from the US

    Hi Sam, I didn’t even notice that the video was longer because of how engaging you are. I love this bundle, I think it was number one on my wish list. I’ve seen so many cute things done with it including Santa earrings! Thanks for the tips on making covers for junior legal pads.

  11. These were great tips for using the punch. Thanks for the notebook idea, too.

  12. I received my lovely little notebook today Sam thank you so much I love it, it is in my handbag as we speak ready for my lists x

  13. I got my little notebook today too Sam so thank you very much for that and the card – they will certainly come in handy and to think that your boys had a hand in making them makes them even more special. I remember my boys loving to “help” when they were little and they grow up so quickly so enjoy it while it lasts. Margie x

  14. Thanks Sam for the thankyou gifts. Really appreciated. Love all your youtube demos x

    Thanks for all the tips. I am in the middle of getting my house ready to show, so not able to play :(. I think both ways of doing the teddy bear ears are good.
