Sturdy and Big Reinforced Gift Box - Rose Garden Thinlits Dies

I say in my video that these are my new dies - well actually that's a little white lie.  I have had them for a little while now and just not found the right project for them.   Until now !

I have created this two tone gift box.  Its big in capacity (6 x 6 x 1  1/2 inches), and very sturdy and robust.  I inlaid the gorgeous dies in the panel on the lid.

In Black and Blushing Bride card stock, I dressed it with a pretty black shimmery bow.  I just have to wait for the right occasion to use it now, as I think its quite special.

What do you think ?

Here is a link to my video giving instructions on how I made it:-



Happy Friday everybody - the weekend is upon us.  Yay !!

Bye for now.

Fresh Florals Magnetic Covered Notebook in Clear Stamp Case Cover from Stampin' Up"

I have been wanting to make one of these for ages !

Clear Stamp Case Cover by Linda Parker, UK Stampin' Up! Demonstrator to hold Magnetic Notebook and Business Card Holder

Magnetic Notebook,  Clear Stamp Case Cover,  Linda Parker



So I ordered myself some Clear Stamp Case Covers, some pen clip holders and A6 notebooks and hey presto !!

The Fresh Florals DSP is so pretty and this is a great way to showcase it.  It makes for a great practical way to carry around a notebook and pen, whilst keeping them protected in the clear stamp case.

My notebook has a magnetic sheet adhered to the back of it and there is a magnetic sheet adhered to the stamp case to hold it firmly in place.   Complete with co-ordinating pen,  handy calendar and business card holder/postage stamps holder, I think this would make a great Teachers Gift, or indeed, a great and handy gift for anybody !

Links for the Pen Clip and A6 Notebooks can be found under my YouTube video description, together with a link to the Clear-Mount Stamp Case Covers (4 for £5.50 - a bargain !!)

Hope you like it.

This is my lastest step by step video tutorial.



Thanks for stopping by today.  Please remember to use my Hostess Code for July if you are shopping with me, which is. QJNHGEQC.

And by the way ......... I am GIVING AWAY this notebook set to one of my lucky July customers.

Bye for now,

Beautiful Bouquet really is quite Beautiful

I received some new toys this week !

Amongst them, the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle.

I have been told my style is Clean And Simple and I guess it is, if this is anything to go by.

I have sent my June Hostess Rewards customers the lovely new Sweetheart Textured Impressions Embossing Folders which should be falling through their letterboxes sometime this coming week.

I wanted to combine using my own pretty embossing folder with my Beautiful Bouquet Bundle, and this little card is what I came up with.

Beautiful Bouquet from Stampin Up by Linda Parker

I have only used two elements from the numerous ones contained in the set. But they do make a big impact.  I used a Blender Pen to add some deeper definition to the lovely flower motif.  It kind of makes it more interesting and I think it "pops".  I shall be using that technique again for sure.  I die cut some hearts to reflect the heart shape in the centre of the dry embossed card, and to create a decorative centrepiece for my card.

Well, I am going to hit my craft room again today for a couple of hours.  How about you ?

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Sunday everyone.

Bye for now.

June Hostess Rewards Going Out This Week !

Well now -  I have been a busy bee !!!


I do love my job !  I get a real sense of satisfaction from being able to reward my customers for their loyalty.   And I like to do so by creating pretty packaging to send their Reward Gifts in.  These gifts are winging their way (pardon the pun !) to customers who used my Hostess Code in June.

Out came my Dragonfly Dreams stamp set (I do just adore this little bee).  I used up some retiring DSP and put to good use my two new punches - the 2 1/4 inch circle punch and the lovely new Starburst punch to create this pretty layered topper.  Hey Presto !

Free Hostess Gifts



If you are thinking of placing an order, please remember to use my Hostess Code for July which is

QJNHGEQC .    I would love to be sending a little something to you next month for becoming a member of my July Rewards Club.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bye for now - I have to make a trip to the Post Office !!
