Sneak Peek Merry Music Box and Ornament

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Sneak Peek Merry Music Box and Ornament

So I’ve been saving using new goodies until the ‘eleventh hour’ and I have decided to start the new Winter Catalogue with festively unchristmassy Christmas!

I love the papers, they’re so gorgeous, and while these 2 have Carols on them, there are other patterns that are just musical chords/symbols, some lovely script and pretty patterns. And what’s interesting is that one half of the pack is black on white and the other is the same pattern but white on black. You also get 24 sheets rather than the usual 12. They’re a little thinner than regular DSP, but heck, who cares when you get so much!

I wanted to showcase the paper, ribbon and adorable ornaments quite simply, so I went with a 4x4x1 (10 x 10 x 2.5cm) fold flat box. Great for all sorts of goodies, but could you imagine a beautifully laid up table at Christmas with crisp white crockery, silver cutlery, elegant glassware and these on all the white plates? I know I’d be excited to see what was inside!

Have a super day on this lovely Bank Holiday Monday everyone!

Pootles’ Picks Shopping Gifts

Everyone who shops with me gets a handmade card and gift in the post. Sometimes the gift is a handcrafted item, sometimes it’s a product share, sometimes it’s something else entirely!

And every person gets that, regardless of how large or small your order is. I am grateful to everyone who shops with me.

I do however also have a Hostess Code and always share the goodies out amongst everyone who uses it. This month, I’m trialling something different.


  • Spend over £50/€65 and receive the divine Metallic Edge Ribbon in Silver worth £6.25/€8.50
  • Spend over £100/€135 and receive the utterly beautiful Background Bits stamp set worth £19/€25
  • If you’d still like to use the code and be part of the collective, but your order is under £50, please feel free to use it and I’ll make sure to pop a little something extra in your parcel!
  • If your order is over £150/€200 please do not use the code as you will be your own Hostess and get your own rewards to spend!
