Stamp Around UK Video Hop – June 2023 – In Colors

Hello! Today I’m taking part in a video hop over on YouTube along with a fabulous group of other UK based Stampin’ Up! independent demonstrators. Our theme for this month is the Stampin’ Up! In Colors, so we can use any combination of the 2022-2024 or 2023-2025 In Colors for our projects. I decided to […]

Father’s Day card with He’s All That

Hello! I hope you are well. I am delighted that the He’s All That stamp set and the coordinating All That dies have carried over into the 2023-2024 Annual Catalogue as I don’t have many masculine stamp sets. However, the matching designer series paper has been discontinued and I’ve completely finished my last pack of […]
