One of my team members made me a little gift the other day - a Stampin' Dimensional Holder!
I'd never seen this before, and it's so cute!
It perfectly holds one sheet of Stampin' Dimensionals.
I made some for my Stamp Club ladies in the Follow Your Art DSP.
I coloured all of the brush tips and rollers with Wink of Stella for a little bit of sparkle.
I love this type of thing - a cute little gift that doesn't take too long to make and isn't too expensive to give away, just perfect for customer gifts too!
Why not try it yourself? You can find one of many tutorials for this little holder here - have fun!
Until next time,

I came across a card recently and loved it so much I just had to make it - it even made me want to get the Stampin' Blends that I was 'never going to get as I don't colour in' haha. I'm now a convert to Stampin' Blends - they are so fun to use!
The original card is on youtube - an easy tutorial to follow and the demonstrator is so talented!
I made a matching shadow box out of scraps I had on my table, it turned out pretty cute I thought :)
You really should give this one a go, fun colouring techniques using the blends and sponging through one of our stencils was really relaxing!
Let me know if you would like to get together and make this - I'd be happy to put together a paid class for you :)

Still on my obsession with chocolate treat holders, here is a shadow box that holds a 40gram Choceur chocolate bar - these are readily available in a range of flavours from your local Aldi store - here in Australia that is :)
The photos really don't do this treat holder justice - it is such a pretty colour combination - Petal Pink and Early Espresso.
This paper is from the Magnolia Lane DSP, my current favourite from the annual catalogue.
If you are a demonstrator, you can purchase a 20 pack of this paper in 2 double-sided designs, which is great to be able to bulk-make treat holders like this :)
If you would like to purchase a 20 pack, let me know and I can order you one!
Let me know if you would like to get together to make some of these shadow box treat holders, I would be happy to put a paid class together for you :)
Until next time,

I came across a fabulous card online recently - you can see the tutorial here. Make sure to go watch it, as Linda gives you some great tips on how to do this technique - my only change would be to not colour over your gold embossing - I found it changed the colour of the embossing, so I coloured inside the lines. It doesn't take much longer to do this, but I think it gives a shinier result, but try it for yourself and see how you go :)
Here are some of the ones I made:
Crumb Cake card stock, gold embossing powder and Whisper White craft ink was used with an aquapainter to colour the flowers, before a sponge dauber dipped in Petal Pink ink was used on the middle of the flower.
Very very simple, but I think it is really lovely.
What do you think? Do you like them?
You can do this same technique on pretty much any colour card stock, which colour would you use?
I would love to see your creations :)
Until next time,
