Hamburger Card

This card was made using an image from the Crafters Companion Camden Town make papercrafting CD. 

The stamp, note paper and arrows were from a retired Stampin Up kit. I used distress ink in vintage photo on all the items for a bit of interest. 

Handmade gift bag

I love the Stampin Up Shine On speciality designer papers. The designs are lovely and they're really nice and thick. 

I used two sheets to make this gift bag which I saw on YouTube ( It worked really well with this paper. It was really easy to do and made a nice strong bag. 

I added in a heat embossed tag for an added bit of decoration using the Stampin Up Saleabration Just for you stamp.

Gift Box Using Stampin Up Designer Series Kraft Card

I needed a small gift box for some presents for my Dad after he had another eye operation. I love the printed and foiled Shine on Stampin Up designer series Kraft card and made this for one 12x12 sheet using my Crafters Companion Big Score.

I cut the card in half (so I had two 6x12 pieces). With the first piece I stamped the stamp 'sweet treats' from the Stampin Up teeny tiny sentiments. With this piece I used the 'box lid' side of the board and measured 2.5 cm on each side. I did the same with the other sheet on the 'box base' side. I then used tacky glue to put it together.

I finished it with some lime ribbon.

The designer series Kraft is a great thickness and it makes it a really nice box.
