ADVENT COUNTDOWN 24 Mini Christmas Banners

Stampin’ Up! UK ADVENT COUNTDOWN 23 Mini Christmas Banners Okay, so the children have broken up from school, Christmas isn’t coming fast enough for them, there’s no snow because it’s grey and raining and British weather is never stereotypically seasonal (one day we may have a white christmas…!), and they’re bored.

Pullable Christmas Cracker ADVENT COUNTDOWN 23

Stampin’ Up! UK Pullable Christmas Cracker ADVENT COUNTDOWN 23   Oooo, this was so not a planned project, but someone asked me to make a cracker, and while I love the ones that are out there on the internet, I wanted to make one that was different. And while it was having this thought process, […]

ADVENT COUNTDOWN 22 Elongated Sweetie Treat Pouches

Stampin’ Up! UK ADVENT COUNTDOWN 22 Elongated Sweetie Treat Pouches   It’s Toffee Time! Okay, the irony is, that had I been a bit more ‘witty’ ahead of time, instead of at a later time (I’d be great after an event, useless at the time!), I’d have bought some humbugs to go inside a treat […]

ADVENT COUNTDOWN 19 Table Gift Bag

Stampin’ Up! UK ADVENT COUNTDOWN 19 Table Gift Bag One of the things I love about making boxes and packaging is that although there really are only a handful of basic shapes and ways to build up a box/bag, it’s how you adjust the measurements that makes them look so very different. Essentially, this bag […]

Advent Countdown 17 Countdown Calendar Video

Stampin’ Up! UK Advent Countdown 17 Countdown Calendar Video So today’s project isn’t about the whole creation of this project, it’s fairly simple to pop some pretty paper into a photo frame, you cut to size and slip it in.
