Table favours using Hug in a mug and Treat Tubes

Hug in a mug table favours

I just couldn’t resist sharing one more project with you all! I made a few table favours for Christmas Day, just in case we all needed some more chocolate! Christmas Day and Easter Sunday are the two days of the year that my children are allowed chocolate for breakfast but it is possible that my teenagers does so more than twice a year!

I used some retiring favourites of mine, they’ll be gone by 3 January so grab them while you can.

Treat tubes 144612

They were super quick to make and only a few M&M’s fell into my mouth 🙂

Be sure to check out the Hug in a Mug stamp set, I think it’s a great one for all year round. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate have a place any day! I’m sure you’ll find lots of uses for the Treat Tubes too.

All the goodies you’ll need to make your own table favours are below, be sure to use the rewards code for extra treats from me.

Hearts Come Home – Picture

Hi all

I have a piece of home decor for you all today! The Hearts Come Home bundle is SO versatile for many crafting projects and I just had to make a cute little picture with it.


There’s even a die to make tags, you can see it top right on the image above. You can use the houses individually, cut them up or make an entire village!

Heart Come Home (1).png


I used an Ikea Tysslinge picture frame and it’s quite teeny! 8x9cm to be exact. As you can see I took just one house and tree, cut it 3 times in Real Red, Whisper White and Dapper Denim and paper pieced it to create a multi coloured image. Some Daffodil Delight was glued to the back to create a ‘glow’ in the windows. The tree was cut from Emerald Envy and Early Espresso with a Daffodil Delight star to top it off. The photo doesn’t show it well but I added some sparkle using Wink of Stella.

Stampin' Up! Stamparatus Pre-order opens again tomorrow!


Blink and you might have missed the last Stamparatus Pre-Order window as we had a sell out in 15 minutes! This is THE must have stamping tool for 2018 and clearly lots of you agree!

Due to the unprecedented demand there have been some changes to the pre-order system.

The window will open again at 9pm (GMT) 5 December and REMAIN OPEN until 31 December. Stampin’ Up! will start shipping the Stamparatus from 19 March on a first come first served basis. So, the sooner you place your order the sooner you’ll have your hands on one!

Reserving your Stamparatus is easy, just go to my online store and follow the instructions. You WILL NOT be charged until your Stamparatus ships and you’ll be able to add other items to your order should you wish to once you have your shipping notice.

There will be no 3rd window to pre-order. After this window closes, the next opportunity to purchase will be June when the Stamparatus will be in the new Annual Catalogue.

Good tidings! Especially when it's in the sale!


The Year – End Sales Event starts today! This is your chance to grab Autumn/Winter catalogue items before they retire on the 2nd of January. Not all items are retiring, and in some cases it’s the bundle that is retiring.

What does that mean?

If you flick through the catalogue or my online store you’ll see bundle pricing on some stamp sets and their coordinating dies or punches, buying the bundle saves you 10% of the cost of purchasing them separately. Some of the items will carry over but bundle prices only apply to the catalogue they were first published in. I hope that makes sense!



On the website there are two sections to choose from, Retiring Favourites and Discounted. Click the banners above to be redirected to my online store.

If you would prefer a PDF list, you can download it here

I do have a project to share with you today, it features the Good Tidings stamp set which is on sale!



The Sheet Music background stamp with inked with Soft Suede and stamped off.

The first layer of leaves was inked with Garden Green and stamped off, the second layer was full strength Garden Green. I didn’t quite line up the second image right but I was doing mine in a hurry on a instagram video! I see nothing wrong with displaying a little human error, nobody’s perfect!

Enjoy 🙂 xx
