Loaded Laminate Pocket Tutorial



Hi Everyone,

Thank you for stopping by today! Firstly i just want to say 'sorry' for not being around for a while. I have had a few things going on and unfortunately have not been able to record many videos. Fingers crossed i will be back to my normal schedule very soon :-)

Today i have a very simple tutorial on how to make laminate pockets! As a lot of you know i love making pockets and things with my Laminator! I saw this project on another YouTube channel that goes by the name of 'LiveLoveScrap' I am sure many of you are already subscribed to her. I did make some slight changes to these pockets and i am very happy with the result.


I love making these pockets and they are just great to gift to pen pals, swaps and also make great gifts for crafty friends etc. In the original tutorial there is know laminate sheet protecting the inside designer paper of the pocket. I played around and came up with a way to change that!! Please check out my YouTube tutorial and everything will become clear :-)

I hope you will try these laminate pockets as i think they are great fun to make and also very addictive! You can find the link to my YouTube video at the end of this post. You can also purchase the Stampin Up! products from my 24 hr online shop.

Thank you

Love Ann xx

Botanical Bliss Bundle & different Ways To Use Them!


Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog & as always thank you for stopping by. I recently purchased the beautiful Botanical Bliss Bundle from Stampin' Up! & i just wanted to share with you some different ways you can use it.
This bundle is designed to make gift tags etc but i had a play around with it and used it on some cards. I love the way they turned out!





I made some gorgeous 4 x 4" note cards by cutting the die into the middle of the card stock. I then put some coloured card behind it. These cards have turned out very simple but very beautiful i think.

Please check out my YouTube tutorial for full instructions. You can find the link at the end of this Blog post. I have also listed the products i used & they are all available to purchase in my 24hr online shop.

I will be back again Sunday with another video.

Love
Ann xxx

Beautiful Promenade Product Focus



Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my blog on this fabulous Friday!!
Today i wanted to focus on a beautiful bundle/suite in the new annual catalogue called Beautiful Promenade. I just love this whole suite!! It truly is gorgeous!


You can see from the examples i made how gorgeous this suite is. I think it would be perfect for wedding projects. The DSP is absolutely stunning. The paper is a 12 x 12" stack and is all double sided. You have stunning flowers on one side and a more subtle pattern on the reverse.

Petal Promenade DSP 


Petal Promenade Photopolymer Bundle


To make my cards i used the Whisper white note cards and envelopes. These cards are great as they are pre-scored so you only have to fold and burnish. They also come in very vanilla if you prefer.

I hope you agree with me that the Beautiful Promenade suite is simply stunning! You can order this bundle from my 24/7 online shop as well as any other products you may like. Please remember to use my hostess code if your order is less than £150. Free stampin up! goodies for all that do!


You can find all the products i used at the end of this post as well as the link to my YouTube video.

Thank you

Very Easy Paper Flowers! Any Size


Hi Everyone,

Welcome to my Blog! I hope you are all well and have been having lots and lots of sunshine! I do like the summer but if i am honest its been a little to hot for me. My skin does not like the sun when its to hot :-(
Anyway, on with today's tutorial. I came across these gorgeous and very easy paper flowers and new i had to try my hand at some. The tutorial i followed was from a channel called Paper Folds. You can find the link in my YouTube Video.  I hope you will give them a go as they are great fun to make.

This flower was made with a 2" circle punch

This flower was made with a 3 1/4" layering circle die
As you can see from the pictures i made 4 different sizes. All you need to make these flowers is 8 circles of DSP all measuring the same and also 1 circle the same size cut from cardstock. This one will be the base of your flower. So you need 8 circles from DSP and 1 from card making 9 altogether.

I only recommend using thin/regular designer paper as using card or thick paper will not work. You will struggle to fold your circles. For mine i used the Tea room DSP and also the Best Route DSP. Please check out my YouTube Tutorial for full instructions, you can find the link to the video at the end of this post.

I really hope you will give them a try!!

Until next time........
Bye for now
