So Hoppy Together Double Z Fold Card.

Just love this beautiful Stamp Set and next month 'So Hoppy Together" will have a coordinating matching Die set with a few extra dies to add to the set.

 This has come about by offering the dies set to buy from the 1st March -31st March.

This gorgeous set "So Hoppy Together'  is one of Sale-a-bration's gifts for the purchase of $90.00 worth of any Stampin' Up! products from 5th January through to 31st March.


I have used about four stamp sets as well as one embossing folder to make this Wetland Froggie Scene.  I just loved making all the characters and scene settings for this card.

The Stamp sets I have used are:   'So Hoppy Together'
                                                      'Lily Pad Lake'
                                                      'Peaceful Reflection'
                                                      'In the Meadow' (retired) Any grass stamp and tree leaves would do.
                                                      'Woodlands' Embossing Folder
                                                      All Stampin' Up! products

This is part of the Layers that add a little bit of life to my Wetlands Scene.

Have a wonderful week crafting.

Dinosaurs Birthday

My grand sons 8th Birthday on Monday.  To suits the little man's Taste of the Moment are Dinosaurs and although this is a retired set the background was done with one of our Current Sets ' Waterfront'.  This one is in our annual catalogue and it is so useful I use it for so many different ideas.
The construction is a U Bridge Card which is amazing for setting the scene with so many different ideas.

I have been stamping now for many many years.  It is 40 years or more so have an amazing collection of stamps.  I have stamps from Companies that have not existed for years.  It is nice to be able to use them all together some times.
Of course  my love now is Stampin' Up! 

Happy Birthday to my gentle little Elliott.  God Bless and have a wonderful new 8th Year.
love Nanna

Quilled Beauty from Many Years Ago!

I want to wish you all a wonderful Christmas.  This beautiful Nativity was Quilled for me by an American Friend Jill Van Direen over 20 years ago.  It is still in pristine condition and I set it up for our Nativity for Christmas. Of course I took a lot of photo's to send to Jill so I could remind her of her wonderful generosity and gorgeous work of so long ago.

Add caption

Just looking at the many beautiful coils and Marquis and all the beautiful rolls of quilling it still pull my heart toward this very old art of precious paper.

Such an amazing gift to have for all these years and still as beautiful as the day it was made.
One of the most amazing thing that Jill and I are both a Stampin' Up! Demonstrators now one at one end of the globe and the other at the other end.  It was so lovely to see Jill name on our Demonstrator list and another thing in life we share.

Happy Christmas to all.
Have a Blessed Christmas and Joyous New Year.

Stampin' Up! Designer Paper Laser Cut for Absolute Beauty.

This card was made especially for a Wedding I have used a lot of our retired punch sets and dies to get the shape of the flowers that I wanted to use.  The beautiful Lattice Background is our beautiful Romantic Laser Cut Papers that is in our Annual Catalogue.  I think it really makes the card look stunning.  The flowers have been made with our Whisper White Ordinary weight card stock Paper with our beautiful little coloured Pearls that are in the Annual Catalogue also.  The stamp set is 'Falling for You'  it is retired but I really liked the greeting.

A close up of my Roses, I have used Cake Decorating stamen in the centre, and our beautiful Net Hail Spot Ribbon.  The rings I  have made with two circle dies taped together on our Gold  Foil  Card Stock.  I cut two out and placed them over each other to give the joined effect.

All boxed up and ready to go.
Happy Crafting.

Oh Christmas Tree!

These Cute little Christmas Trees can either be used as a name Card for your placement at the festive table or as a cute little Christmas Card.
If using as a Christmas Card you place a row of double sided tape on the back to be put together when received.  They are very cute for display  and so simple to make.

Two different styles I have made here.

As you see above the Merry Christmas Greeting can be used to pop the name on your card of were your guest is to be seated.

If anyone would like the direction for this card I will write them out and pop them up on this Blog in a few days.
Happy Crafting,

Stampin' Up's! Santa's Workshop.

Santa's Workshop Suite has surely thrilled me.  I have spent the last 8 weeks making this Memory Album for Christmas Photo's and Memories.

The Designer Series Paper, Stamp Set and Dies have made this so easy to do and enjoy.  The very last part of my book was to design the Floral Arrangement on the spine of the cover which was so exciting to do.

As you know I love my flowers.  I have attached some little silver and red bells, net ribbon and fir branches, mistletoe even a little branch of berries.

There are pockets, flap and pages and hours more I could have put into it but if I do it will be later.
Enjoy having a peek at my little workshop.
Happy Crafting.

VW Fun

It was my husbands Birthday last week and he loves his VolksWagen Cars.  He has been a V.W. connoisseur' for many years now. 
I can even remember back in 1971 when we went off on our Honeymoon to Queensland in our little V.W. Sedan.  These days we still drive a little white bug.

So I had to make him this Card for his birthday.  Must say he loved it and thought I had bought the badge to put on the card.  He really knows I would not do that.  All my old retired bits and pieces came in so handy for this card.  From old Alphabet dies to the stamps a 'Beautiful Ride'.  Think it is just as well I am a hoarder.

Have a wonderful week crafting.
love Carolyn.
