Long summer break

Hi Everyone
I've had a fabulous long summer break! Christmas rolls on to new year...on to holiday with the kids and then my birthday in early Feb, so the good times just roll on and on!
But, all good things come to an end and reality has set in, the kids are back at school, and I've had my first few days back at 'real' work. .Luckily I have this other part time job as a  Stampin'Up demonstrator which brings me a lot of fun and enjoyment through creating and catching up with a lot of neat people.

Our first session for the year was creating with the gorgeous papers from the Sale-a-Bration brochure, Sycamore Street and the matching buttons and ribbons.(Choose either free when you spend $120 on product)

We made these cute gifts, card holders and 3 cards to go inside. I'm determined to be more organised with my own gifts for friends this year, so started off by creating a pile of these to have on the ready to give away.
I used thesimply scored tool to create the boxes and then the adorning accent edgelet to make the nice curve on the front.
The cards were quite simple, though still impressive I thought.

The ladies all made a great job and went home happy with their first project of the year.
I promise to be back soon.
Hope your year has started well,
Kind regards


  1. These sets look wonderful. A great idea.

  2. These are really gorgeous, what a great first class for the year. TFS.

  3. Wow - these are lovely (did I tell you my birthday was in May!). If possible are you able to share the measurements for your box?
