I found this great video from Stampin' Up! showing how to make the star boxes featured in the new supplement.  I haven't tried them yet but plan to soon.  Check it out :)


I have been also continuing with my Christmas Card making before my trip too as Christmas is getting closer and closer by the minute......just 65 days now to be exact....Aaaaghhhh!!!  and I haven't even made half of my cards yet.  I will have to really get a move on in November.

I had some little stars floating around on my work area from a couple of previous projects using the Confetti Stars Punch

Confetti Stars Punch# 135861

so just had to make a shaker card.  I love shaker cards :):) Using the Shaker Frames.  They come in a pack of 6 lots of these varying sizes below for just $8.95.  On my card I used the largest outside circle

Shaker Frames# 124155

I adhered the Designer Series Paper on to the Pool Party cardstock first, then added the largest shaker frame circle.  I placed all my little star bits ( Pool Party, Whisper White and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper ones ) inside the shaker frame.  My DSP is from the retired Winter Frost Specialty DSP but you can use any of the current ones like the All is Calm Specialty DSP and would have the same great effect.

I then built up the top with a pool party circle by cutting 2 circles together from the Circles Collection Framelits Die to fit the shaker frame.

Circles Collection Framelits Die# 130911

Then the same idea using the Stars Framelits Dies.  I stamped the largest star stamp from the Bright and Beautiful Stamp Set and chose the Framelit that fitted the star and the next framelit 2 sizes down. Popped the star on the top with a little bit of Liquid Multipurpose Glue, added a couple of Rhinestone Basic Jewels and done.

Stars Framelits Dies# 133723.        Bright & Beautiful Clear-mount Stamp Set# 135029 Clear
                                                                                                                            # 135026 Wood

Liquid Multipurpose Glue# 110755    Rhinestone Basic Jewels Embellishments# 119246

The Merry Christmas greeting is from the  "Good Greetings" Stamp Set 
# 135017 in Clear and # 135014 in Wood which is still free till the end of October with every order over $300.00.  I hand cut the little flag ends to give it all a fancy finish!!

A New Home.................

Hi there Stampers

My daughter and son-in-law (SIL as I affectionately call him :* )  have bought their first home together and very soon now baby will make three xxxxoooo

So I thought I just must use the new "Holiday Home" photopolymer stamp set in the new Holiday Catalogue on page 16.  It also comes in a bundle including the matching framelits with a 15% saving.  Love those bundles.

It has a lot of Christmas little stamps in it too so can be used for many different occasions.  My next project is a few Christmas cards using it too.  Just so versatile. Pop on over to my website shop here to see a close up of what you get

So here is my card that I sent them to congratulate them on their new happy home

I have used Stampin' Up!s washi tape at the top and bottom of the card and also decorated the envelope flap with the washi tape as well.  Yellow is my favourite colour.  So happy and bright and sunny :):):)
The colour theme is Daffodil Delight and Crumb Cake with a splash of whisper white in there as well.

Happy Stamping
