Stampin'Up On Stage Event Solihull

Hello there,
WOW, I have just about come back down to earth after a fabulous weekend spent with my team at our bi annual training event that took place in Birmingham.

We kicked it off with a yummy Afternoon Tea on Friday, where we swapped gifts and even did a spot of crafting. A sweet little stocking made with the Trim Your Stocking Die showcased here by the gorgeous Vanessa :)

Vanessa is also holding her goodie bag that I put together for my all attending team members. I used the fabulous You're Priceless across all of my gifts this year. It fitted perfectly

Then on Friday evening we attended an special Leaders Event, with a fancy delicious meal and wonderful presentations. 

I loved the colour scheme of the table decor and how gorgeous do my teamies Julie and Sharon look? It was a fun event and as well as the dinner we were spoiled with a personalised T-Shirt and a brand NEW stamp set that's coming soon in the Spring Catalogue. 

Saturday was all about fun new to be released products, crafting, business presentations and  hanging with my fab team having a grand time :) They are the biggest part of doing what I love, the friendship and relationships are the most wonderful thing in this business and I will forever be grateful to this girls for allowing me to share their journeys. 





Oooh I nearly forgot the cake !!!! We are celebrating 10 years in the UK this week and it was fun to see these yummy cupcakes everywhere.. 


 And there was plenty of recognition for our past year achievements.  Incredibly humbled and happy to have ranked number 8 in the UK, I have managed to place top 10 overall ever since starting my Stampin'Up! journey nearly 10 years ago !!! THANK YOU to all that supported me over these years.


If you are reading this post and are thinking you would love to be part of it all as well, then please contact me so that we can chat about the possibility of joining one of the friendliest, loveliest teams there are. I am truly proud of all of the girls in our team for their warm hearts and for always being there for each other or simply follow this link and

Hearts Come Home Shadow Box Ornament

Hello there :)
How are you doing? Thank you for visiting me today, once again its time to be hopping with the Fab Stamp To Share Team,  and this month we are focusing on the Hearts Come Home Bundle.

If you've been keeping your eye on my Facebook Business Page, you know how much I love this set, I have been using it tons already.

For this blog however I used a bit differently,

I decided to use the Fab and New Stampin Blends to colour my sweet houses, after seeing a picture of sweet decorated gingerbread biscuits on Pinterest. It had all of these colours on it 

YUMMY right?? Once my little houses had colour on them,  I needed to lift them even further and I ended up with them looking like sugared gingerbread houses, thanks to the sticky sheets and some dazzling diamonds.

And once my scene was complete I cut a scalloped aperture in the lid of a pizza box and mounted the sparkly houses on the back the box. And I had a flash of inspiration when I decided to simply scoop some Embossing paste from Stampin' Up! in front of the scene which I sprinkled when wet with more glitter to act like mounds of sparkling snow <3 nbsp="" p="">

I sponged the outside of the box with some pool party ink then tied a length of Powder Pink 1/2" Ribbon around the box. I topped the bow with a sweet Mini Ornament and a Green Pine Sprig which has been frosted with more Embossing Paste

What do you think? I love it and it looks even better in real life, THANK YOU for joining me today now please follow on to Amy's blog and see what delights she has in store for you today. 
Much love
