Stampin' Trimmer - by Stampin' Up!

Introducing the new and improved Stampin’ Trimmer! Although paper trimmers are a common crafting tool, this trimmer was designed exclusively by paper crafters for paper crafters—and because it was made by Stampin’ Up!, you know it’s a cut above the rest!
Please note: the cutting and scoring blade refills will be available early in December.

Features of the All-New Stampin’ Trimmer
  • An extra-wide 15.9 cm cutting base and an extended 39 cm ruler
    • The extra-wide cutting base provides a large work area and is marked in 4 mm increments, allowing for small measurements.
    • The right-side grid helps you measure and cut very thin strips.
    • The extended cutting arm has a stabilizing leg to provide a sturdy and steady cutting surface for longer cuts. 
    • When fully extended, the extended cutting arm sits flush with the trimmer base, providing more accurate and consistent measurements across the entire surface.
    • All rulers and measurements on the base are printed under a plastic cover so your measurements won’t wear off.
    • The base has nonskid feet, which keeps the Stampin’ Trimmer securely in place on your work area.
  • A full 30.5 cm cutting and scoring track
    • The extra-long cutting track has space at the top and bottom so you don’t have to take the cutting and scoring blades out when you’re not using them. 
    • The track gives you enough space to cut or score a full 30.5 cm without having to remove or switch out handles. 
    • The cutting track locks in place for secure storage or transport. 
    • The track includes an insertion point for cutting and scoring blade handles so you can easily insert handles into the cutting track.
  • Specially designed handles and cutting track to ensure straight cuts
    • The hook on the scoring and cutting blade handles keeps the handles stable so the cuts are as straight as possible.
    • Handles come in two colors: dark for cutting, light for scoring. 
    • The precision tip on the cutting blade allows you to pinpoint precisely where you’re cutting.
    • The point on the side of each handle shows you where the blade will cut, making it easy to see exactly where your cuts and scores will begin.
  • Storage compartment under base
    • The storage compartment holds scoring and cutting tools such as a Bone Folder, Simply Scored Stylus, extra scoring and cutting blades and even business cards. 
    • Separate compartments within the storage compartment keep your tools organized, and the clear cover makes it easy to see what you’ve stored.
  • Product details: item 129722; 33,95 €/£25.95

Sorry for the absence.......

It been a while since I last blogged and im sorry for that.  

Some of you may know but for those that dont I have been dealing with a huge tragedy in my life, my yonger brother was hit by a car in early November and after being in a coma and fighting for 5 days he sadly passed away on 13th Nov 2012.  I have been left devestated by this and am still trying to figure out why this happened to us and more importantly why him.

The support we have received as a family has been overwhelming and the love that has been shown for him is a testement to the type of person he was.

I am slowly trying to get back to routine especially with my crafting as I need a release and hope that you will all bare with me during what is the worst moments of my life...I should never have had to say goodnight to my little brother and it is heart renching

I will be posting quite a bit over the next week as loads of samples and a couple of exciting Stampin Up bits to share with you all

I shall leave you now but keep eyes open for upcoming posts and info

Twitterpatted scrapbook page

Morning everyone

I am finally getting around to finishing my little girls 1st year baby album (she is nearly4!!!!) and I created this page using the Twitterpatted Designer series Paper which is one of my absolute favourites and I was so pleased whan they carried it over into the New Annual Catalogue.

Look how tiny my baby girl is against the Thumper teddy next to her!!!!

As Lillie was our second child and we diddnt find out what we were having we kept the Blue crib bedding that we had used for our son Frankie - The crib is approx 80yrs old and the bedding had to be made specially - and I thought that I wouldnt be able to scrapbook this pic as each time I tried to match it to Pink nothing worked..then I laid the picture ontop of the patterened paper in Twitterpatted and it was a perfect match..and so from a sketch this gorgeous layout was born.

Here is your shopping list:

Twitterpatted Designer Series Paper
Crumb Cake Cardstock

If you would like to order a catalogue or anything from the catalogues please contact me on

Tommorrow I will be posting another Big Shot Project so make sure you pop back for a look xxxx

Big Shot Snow Flurry Die

Earlier this weekend I posted some informtion about the Big Shot Die Cutting machine...over the next week I will be sharing some projects with you that have been made using dies/embossing folders and the Big Shot.

First up is a simple scrapbook page using the Snow Flurry Die

Although I have only used the die once on this page I really like the effect it has and how it stands out against the Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Stack.

If you have a copy of the Stampin Up Catalogues you will see the fantastic Dies and Embossing folders that we have to offer...We have also set up a selection of Stamp and Die bundles in the Autumn/Winter catalogue which are fantastic value for money.

If you woud like to request a catalogue or order anything from the catalogues please contact me on

Thanks for popping by and dont forget I will be posting more projects this week so pop back soon xxx

Stampin Up Big Shot

I recently became the proud owner of a Big Shot....and boy has it made my life easier..for those who dont know what a Big Shot is here is a picture.....

The Sizzix Big Shot for Stampin' Up! product line is a big deal! With the Big Shot and our exclusive dies, you can cut over 50 different material types and duplicate creative and intricate designs quickly and easily. And because the Big Shot is lightweight and does not require electricity, you can take it with you wherever you go.
We've designed exclusive dies that coordinate with current Stampin' Up! product lines—such as our stamps and punches—as well as Sizzix dies that coordinate with the Stampin' Up! look and feel. You can also create beautiful fabric accessories and home décor with your Big Shot--even if you don't sew. Design your own custom pillow appliqués using the Scallop Circle Bigz die or make custom fabric flowers to embellish a quilt. From sewing to quilting to home décor, the Big Shot is the perfect tool for many types of crafting.
Our product line will continue to expand, so check back to see what exciting new things are on the way.

Want to see the Big Shot in action?
Host a workshop! At a workshop, I can give you a hands-on demonstration of the product and you'll be able to purchase it at a workshop. I can also help you learn fun ways to use your Big Shot and dies in all your creative projects.
