    Star Box with Stampin Up' Wooden Snowflake Elements for Molton Brown gift

    Hello There

    It's that time of year where you frantically make gift goodies for Friends and Family, ( Gee where has the time gone!!)   Lots of ideas buzz about in your mind, lots to be inspired by on the internet and then I was inspired by one of my team members Elaine Kerr, I loved it and wanted to make one, I decorated it similar to the downline Gifts I made for Stampin Up' s Onstage event in Brussels…..

    There are many Star box Tutorials around the place, but none the size I wanted , Oh my nearly Two hours I was faffing around trying to get the right measurement, but I was determined to get the size I wanted.

    I used splats this time from the beautiful Awesomely Artistic Stamp Set, and the Gorgeous Wooden Snowflake Elements, Oh how I adore these, I painted them with A Wink of Stella Clear  with a Gorgeous sneak peak item from the new upcoming Spring/Summer Catalogue, Prettilicous for sure, you can barely see it from the photos as I couldn't get it to focus,  I blame that on too much sparkle, Ha Ha…..


     See the Wink of Stella below

    And here is where my inspiration  came from

    My Stampin' Up Stampissimo Video for you tube ………. using Lots of Joy Stamp Set

    I can now share with you my something fabulous I spoke about a while ago,

    A couple of months back I got a call from our Business Manager Paula Gorry here in the UK for Stampin Up, asking would I come and make a video for Stampissiomo,  well I couldn't say no could I, ..

    I was asked to make some simple tags to demonstrate in the video using the stamp set Lots of Joy, from the Annual Catalogue, showing how easy it is to make your own tags, and was asked to share a couple of makes to show also more involved stamping and paper crafting items, … I did get a little carried away as the more I used the set the more I liked it….

    I had a super fun day, I won't lie it was not easy, two flood lights shining in your face whilst you are being filmed smiling into thin air was hard!!! , lol was I  nervous hell yeah!!!!! I sure you will notice just how much in the opening scene,  I have to confess I wasn't to clever the night before, the nerves got the better of me,  But Paula and Kelly was very gentle with me, made me feel at home, made me smile and made me laugh out very loud,  and tried very hard to make me feel at ease…

    I am always being asked to do videos on my makes, especially the ladies in my team, so I dedicate this video to them, ….

    Here are some photos taken of the day…..

    Tomorrow I will share the makes I made so please do pop by…..
