#1 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Hotel Chocolat Petal Promenade Explosion Box
Hands up who has experienced and loves Hotel Chocolat? I’m very fortunate that these amazing chocolates are made in Cambridgeshire where I live, and better still, the Factory Outlet shop is close by too! Getting to stock up on amazing chocolate and at a discount is always a winner for me!
Whenever we go shopping and pass one of the stores, Chris and I always pick up some ‘grown up’ chocolate treats for us, and then some adorable cute treats for the boys. They’re huge fans of the Tiddly Pots and we picked up some recently, albeit for the boys eventually, but I’d planned to put them into a video first.
Unfortunately, small child snaffled them while I was doing a Live Broadcast… He did bring the empty pots back, but I’d wanted to show you the little chocolate drops first! Oh well, as long as the pot is there, you get the idea…!
This project is lovely and while it’s more elegant and sophisticated in its decoration than my boys would probably appreciate, I love the look of it. Can you imagine going to a friends house with a treat for her, and that’s this with darling chocolate delights inside?
The Petal Promenade paper certainly ticks all the boxes for elegance and sophistication and I can’t stop using it! This is the paper that’s really captured my heart this year and I’m doing my best to spread it out so as not to overdose you all with it!
But how about those lovely little flowers on top? Not all projects need stamping, it’s ok to leave it down to the paper to do the talking, and a little extra embellishment takes it from beautiful to stunning!
Have a fabulous week everyone!
I’m currently labelling 200 parcels for everyone who came shopping with me in June. The parcels are all filled with a card, handmade goodie treat and a stamp set too! And then I am also doing nearly 200 recognition gifts for my team too! The start of the month is always very busy for me, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
