Dry Embossing with Die Cut Panels & News of the Craft Stash Black Friday Machines Offers !

A little while ago I made a video tutorial showing you how I dry embossed pretty backgrounds on cards using die-cuts.

Well I decided to revisit that technique again for today's pretty card.



I dry embossed my Bright Diamond Panel dies onto some white card stock and decided to use the debossed image as the background.  Please see my video below which demonstrates how to dry emboss die-cuts. 

For the sentiment, I have combined my Bright Rosa Friend Word Dies with the Birthday Wishes stamp set.

The gorgeous Bright Rosa Sunflower Dies have been worth their weight in gold because I have had so much use from them already.  I used various layer combinations for the flowers on my card.

The discreet leafy die cut is from my Bright Rosa Foliage Dies.


Embossing/Debossing Using the Big Shot.   This video was filmed a little while ago:-


I hope that you like today's project and that if you have not tried dry embossing/debossing using your die-cutting machine, then maybe you will inspired to have a go.  Its a great way to extend the use of dies.

Card in a Box - Bright Rosa Style !!

This site uses affiliated links which means I will receive a small percentage if you use any of my links to purchase products I use for my projects .  Please see Affiliate and Product Disclosure tab above

Its an awfully long time since I made a card in a box.   I remember when they were all the rage and were popping up just about everywhere !

I am now a member of the Craft Stash Design team and I decided to ressurrect them in terms of my own personal crafting menu, to make a sample card for the Hochanda shows which aired on Sunday and Monday, promoting Paula Pascual's Sunflowers and Sentiments Bright Rosa range.

I was so inspired by the gorgeous new Bright Rosa Diamond Panel Dies, Sunflower Border and the Foliage Sprigs dies that I couldn't wait to make this card.


I was so pleased with how this card turned out that I think I shall be making some more and sharing my technique/recipe on my YouTube channel.   So if you haven't already subscribed, then I would love you to do so.  That way you will be notified each time I post a new tutorial.

Paula's show on Hochanda was a huge success and I can see why !   Her designs are inspiring.

I Made a Successful Shaker Card !! It's Going To Be on TV !!

This site uses affiliated links which means I will receive a small percentage if you use any of my links to purchase products I use for my projects .  Please see Affiliate and Product Disclosure tab above

Shaker cards always seem to defeat me.  The shake just doesn't shake. Those pesky the sequins seem to remain stubbornly stuck around the edges of my apertures, resulting in abject disappointment and ultimately a trip to the craft room bin.

Not so this one !


I decided to go for it and try my hand at making a shaker card whereby the aperture/shaker window was, frankly, huge.

I used the gorgeous new Bright Rosa Diamond Panel dies, together with some acetate and adhesive back foam strips which I have had in my craft stash for some time.

I prepped and I prepped and I prepped some more.  I stuck the adhesive strips around the edged of my 7x5 die cut panel and liberally dusted around the edges with my anti-static tool  which I got from Amazon and which is currently only £4.45 with free delivery from Amazon.  I added a variety of sequins in icy blues and irridesent white and nervously sealed them within the big aperture.

My hope was that at least a few might shake freely, but the buzz I got when I tentatively shook it for the first time was just amazing.   My sequins positively flew around within the big aperture created by the fabulous cover die with only a few sticking to the edges.  The sound was very satisfying too.


I would call it a big success ....... and a relief too; because this card, along with lots of my other creations was soon winging its way to the Craft Stash HQ to be photographed for their website and ultimately a trip to the Hochanda studios, where it will be presented as a sample on Hochanda tomorrow evening at 6.00 pm, by the lovely Paula Pascual, the designer behind the brand, and now a bona fide Hochanda TV Presenter.  Paula will be presenting her new Bright Rosa Sunflowers and Sentiments collection

I want to give a shout out too, to the lovely word dies I have used.  These are also part of Paula's new collection.  They are the from the Bright Rosa Sweet Words dies.  I coordinated them with some stamped sentiments too, which are from the Bright Rosa Birthday Wishes stamp set.

I hope that maybe you can tune into Hochanda tomorrow at 6.00 pm or Sunday, or perhaps record the show.  I know that Paula has lots of creative inspiration to share when she promotes her new release.  I was incredibly fortunate to receive the new collection in its entirety and really enjoyed working with them all.  They were all very inspiring.  I even made a new handbag/evening bag gift box, which I will be demonstrating in a video tutorial on my YouTube channel next week.  I can't wait to share it with you.

Thank you for stopping by today.

I hope you have a super weekend and ........................"Happy Crafting Everybody!".

Mini Christmas Bauble Treat Holders using Marvellous Mirri Pad in Fancy Flourishes by Hunkydory

This site uses affiliated links which means I will receive a small percentage if you use any of my links to purchase products I use for my projects .  Please see Affiliate and Product Disclosure tab above

Following on from my Christmas project yesterday when I made some pretty gift boxes using Marvellous Mirri Pad card in Fancy Flourishes by Hunkydory, I decided that I would use it again for today's Christmas project.

I have wanted to try making these cute Christmas Bauble Treat Holders after seeing how popular they were last year.  But I wanted to make a scaled down mini version. 



My mini baubles only require card stock measuring 6-1/4 x 3-3/4 inches, which means that you can make two from one sheet of 8x8 inch card stock or 3 from an A4 sized piece of card stock.

They may look complicated, but honestly - they are super easy.   These would look lovely dotted around your Christmas tree or as little table decorations.

I have recorded a video tutorial giving you step by step instructions, so why not grab yourself a nice brew and sit back and take a little look:-



I hope you like today's Christmas project and feel inspired to have a go.

The Mirri Pad I used is available from Crash Stash if you are ordering from the UK, US Mainland, Australia, Canada or Europe.   Shipping is free in the UK for orders of £15 and over. 

The affiliated links I provide to the Craft Stash website will enable you to select the currency appropriate to you, and I will very gratefully receive a small percentage, but at no extra cost to you.

Thank you for dropping by and I hope you will return again.

Have a super day and ............................"Happy Crafting Everybody!".

Cute Little Christmas Gift Boxes Using Hunkydory Marvellous Mirri Pads - Fancy Flourishes

This site uses affiliated links which means I will receive a small percentage if you use any of my links to purchase products I use for my projects .  Please see Affiliate and Product Disclosure tab above

I think that the Hunkydory Marvellous Mirri Pads are just gorgeous.  I have used the Fancy Flourishes designs for today's little project.   The Mirri sheets in this Paper Pad collection are versatile, in that they can be used for Christmas packaging, but the designs are such that they are suitable for any occasion.


My pretty Christmas gift boxes for today's project have been sized in order to accommodate little shot sized bottles of alcohol, such as Vodka.  But they will hold a variety of little Christmas gifts.  They are 1-7/8 square and the main body is 4 inches tall, not including the decorative top panel.

I used my We Are Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board to make the boxes, but I explain in my video tutorial that it is not essential you use one.  If you don't own one, I show you how to achieve the "cracker" style decorative top.

These gift boxes are very quick and easy to assemble.   Once made up they can be decorated in all sorts of ways.  I chose to use my fabulous Bright Rosa Snowflake Border die pack to embellish with a solitary stylish glittery snowflake.

Here is my latest video tutorial giving you step by step instructions on how to put one together.  Hope you like it.



Thank you for stopping by.  I have another "little" Christmas project lined up to share with you, so I do hope you will pop back for a return visit.

Bye for now and ............................"Happy Crafting Everybody!".

Christmas Sachet Style Gift Box with Magnetic Closure Using Products by Chloe Endean

This site uses affiliated links which means I will receive a small percentage if you use any of my links to purchase products I use for my projects .  Please see Affiliate and Product Disclosure tab above
Today I have a Christmas Sachet Style Gift Box to share with you.   I made it using products I received from Chloe.   I am a big fan of Chloe's paper pads and the beautiful Luxury Foil 8 x 8 Paper Pad I used for today's project was perfect for this Christmas Gift Box.  I also used Chloe's Luxury Pearl Card in the colour Vista.  The quality of the card is just lovely to work with.  It has a gorgeous shimmer which is perfect for special gift boxes.



I chose to incorporate a magnetic snap shut closure for this box design, but you could easily use Velcro coins instead.

The cute little die-cut snowflake is from Chloe's rather fabulous Sparkling Snowflake Cut & Emboss set

The bag is about 5 inches wide, 6-1/2 inches tall and 1-1/2 inches deep - so a very useful size.

I have filmed a step by step video tutorial showing you how to put this Gift Box together.  I do hope it inspires you to have a go a making one.


Thank you for stopping by and please pop back for my next project which I would love to share with you.

The links I have provided in my blog article above are not affiliated links and are direct to Chloe's website at chloescreativecards.co.uk.

I have provided affiliated links in the Product List below to the other tools and products I used for putting together this project.  These products are available from Craft Stash who provide free shipping in the UK for orders over £15.   Craft Stash also ships to the US Mainland, Australia and Europe.

Perpetual Style Advent Calendar For Little Treats

This site uses affiliated links which means I will receive a small percentage if you use any of my links to purchase products I use for my projects .  Please see Affiliate and Product Disclosure tab above
I have been ever so busy designing for the Craft Stash Design Team and an upcoming Hochanda programme, that I have had very little time to craft for myself !  Not that I am complaining.  I am having a great time working with some great brands and products.

But I felt it was time to slip in a crafty little Advent project in good time for Christmas to hopefully please the Christmas crafters.


So I felt that an Advent Calendar would be a nice project.   This one is a Perpetual Style Calendar, purely for December.   The numbered cubes are a great size and I have sized them to hold larger treats.   Each of the cubes in my photo are holding a mini bag of Haribo treats.

I had great fun designing and making the one in the photo.  Its quite blingy and ornate, but it could be made in more traditional Christmas colours and themed for little members of the family.  For adults you could pop some costume jewellery, make-up items, etc into each cube.  Each cube measures 2" inches square.

The products I used to make my Advent Calendar are all byTonic Studios.  I used their Temperance Upper Case Simple Type Dies, Temperance  Lower Case Simple Type Dies, Temperance Numerals Simple Type Dies and also their gorgeous Festive Miniatures Snowflakes Trio Die Set.  The fabulous Black and Gold Foiled Craft Card is also from Tonic Studios.  I will provide affiliate links for both the UK market and the USA in the photos in my Product List below.  However, I have discovered since filming my video that the dies are not available from the Tonic USA website.  The good news is that they are available from Craft Stash, if you are ordering from USA mainland, Canada, Australia or Europe.

Well I do hope you like the look of my cute Advent Calendar.  If you fancy having a go yourself, just click the link below for my step by step video tutorial.  But perhaps make yourself a cuppa first, because it is fairly lengthy.


Thank you for stopping by and please pop back soon, as I hope to have some more projects for you to try in the not too distant future.

Bye for now and ..........................."Happy Crafting Everybody!"
