Smooth, Domed, Pick a Pattern Bag

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Smooth, Domed, Pick a Pattern Bag Firstly I have to say a huge Thank You to Jane Carroll from my team who’s project inspired mine. At our team retreat back in June, Jane’s swap project was the small one and I loved the shape of it so much that I decided […]

Stunning Simplicity of Colourful Seasons

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Stunning Simplicity of Colourful Seasons Oh my wow. I think this stamp set is just beyond gorgeous, and that’s just the words on it!

Pootles’ Way Back Wednesday Slender Storage Box

Pootles’ Way Back Wednesday Slender Storage Box Hmmm, so last week I said that was the last of my revamped storage projects. I didn’t fib as such because when I filmed those 4 (back at the beginning of May), I hadn’t factored in there being 5 Wednesdays in June. And you know me, a series […]
