Stampin’ Up! Demo Pootles – Real Red, Cherry Cobbler, Sahara Sand Painted Petals! Well in just a few days, we are going to be saying Goodbye to the beautiful Painted Petals stamp set. I’m really sad to see it go as it is one that I’ve used so much and have found it has become more and […]

Quirky Colours from Stampin’ Up! Cardstock

Pootles’ Quirky Colours from Stampin’ Up! Cardstock I love to work with unusual colour combinations and endlessly surf pinterest for colour pairings that leap out at me.

Tall Tower Pen Gift Holder using Stampin’ Up! Supplies

Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator Pootles – Tall Tower Pen Gift Holder It’s tall, slim, and holds half a dozen pens. How cute!

Golden Family Painted Petals

Thank You Card using Stampin’ Up! Painted Blooms DSP

Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – Thank You Card using Stampin’ Up!
