Saturday Spotlight

I was thinking about what Stampin Up! products that I use the most.  Having given this some considerable thought, I decided that there were just far too many to mention in one go Winking smile So, I concluded, that we needed a Saturday Spotlight !

This weeks ‘Saturday Spotlight’ is all about Framelits.

My biggest bug bare with using framelits, is that aside from the matching sets and framelits, I never know what is going to fit inside a framelit and what isn’t.  I don’t have the time to measure every single framelit in order to give you a definitive list, but Dawn Olchefske has !  Her amazing list of framelit sizes is HERE ! Wow I wish I had found this handy little link sooner .. now I will know exactly what stamp set or sentiment set will fit with which framelit !  YAY !

I use framelits for all genres of crafting.  I use them as journalling tags and photo mats in my scrapbooking and mini albums, as seen here

convention album 1

and I use them for both picture and sentiment mats when making cards.

Even on their own, framelits make amazing gift tags and bookmarks.


Up to now, I have kept my framelits in their wallets inside a drawer.  However, having seen this amazing idea by Sandi MacIver, I’ve just ordered lots of our DVD clear cases, and intend to sort mine out over the next few weeks. Not only can you get two sets of framelits to one case, but you can see them and access them more easily.

Another idea I’ve seen for storing framelits, is to put them into plastic wallets inside a D-ring album.

Or even, store them in a box on magnetic sheets.

All of them are great ideas, but I like the idea of protecting them inside the DVD cover.

Well, I hope you found the above informative, and that you are able to use some of the ideas that I have suggested.

Special Offer:

Order 2 framelit sets costing £22.95 each, and you will receive both sets for £45 PLUS free postage, PLUS a free Sale a Bration product of your choice !  Don’t forget to let me know what free SAB product you want !

To place an order please contact me on or call/text me on 07747 465186

Have a great weekend everyone !  Cal xxx

Oh Happy Days !

 photo 4Crop 1






YAY !!!  Its Friday !  I hope you have lots of crafting activities lined up for this weekend ?  I’m planning on getting some scrapbooking time, so I need to get up early tomorrow and sort out all the housework and shopping.

In the meantime, I have these two cards to show you.  Can you believe that both of these cards have been created using the same stamp set !  The Happy Watercolor stamp set fills me with such joy .. seriously, I love this set.  It is very definitely one of my most favourite stamp sets from the Spring/Summer catalogue.

Happy Watercolour 1 hardwood stamp 1

The card on the right has been created using the new Hardwood background stamp (Wood 133032 £15.95 or Unmounted 133035 £12.95).  The flower image was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock, and then over-stamped using the watercolour grunge stamp in Crushed Curry ink and Crisp Cantaloupe.  The flower image was then ‘fussy’ cut out, and adhered to the Marina Mist (blue) background, which was then layered onto a Crumb Cake card base.

The card on the left was stamped five times.  Again, I over-stamped using the watercolour grunge stamp, but in Bermuda Bay this time.  I then cut out two of the poppy images, and adhered them over two of the remaining poppy’s using dimensionals.  I used Very Vanilla cardstock, Bermuda Bay cardstock and again, I used a Crumb Cake base.

Bundle Offer:

  • Happy Watercolour stamp set – unmounted - £21.95
  • Hardwood background stamp – unmounted - £12.95
  • Choice of cardstock - £6.25
  • Choice of inkpad - £4.95
  • Total - £46.10
