About Me

My photo
I have been a Stampin' Up Demonstrator for almost two years now, and when I signed up it was just for the starter kit and discount on products........ I never imagined it would snowball into being a business like it has. I am a new Mummy to my little boy, Isaac, who is almost four months old now. I am spending my maternity leave enjoying watch him grow up, becoming his own little person, and also trying to build my business up. Stampin' Up! have amazing products and I would love to share my crafting passion with as many people as possible. I am always putting through orders, so if you need anything, or just want some information or advise, please do not hesitate to contact me. If you want to try before you buy, then check out my classes and get booked on.

Blue Angels Team Training

A few weeks ago a group of Blue Angels got together for a team training event hosted by the lovely Cate.  As usual at these events we all did swaps.

As I had been busily preparing for a craft fair and card class I was a bit limited on time to get swaps done, so I put these gift tags together in about 30 minutes!!!!  Christmas crafting doesn't have to take a long time!

These are the nine that I made all together.  I simply used the Large Tag Punch with the beautiful Holly Berry Bouquet DSP, then stuck this down onto Real Red card punched with the Extra Larger Tag Punch.  I stuck this to a piece of Wild Wasabi (my favourite colour of choice right now) and I trimmed around the edges to form an even larger tag.  I left a little more room at the bottom for the sentiment which comes from the ever so versatile Pennant Parade stamp set.  This was inked in Chocolate Chip.
I punched a hole using my Crop-o-dile and threaded through some 1/8" Real Red Taffeta ribbon to finish them off.
Here's a closer look:

I think I will be making some more of these to add to my Christmas gifts this year as I just think they are adorable.

The Details: 
Card / Paper - Wild Wasabi / Real Red / Holly Berry Bouquet DSP
Stamps / Ink - Pennant Parade / Chocolate Chip
