Last Day of Sale-a-Bration


We're on the last day of March and the last day of Sale-a-Bration!

Please order by 10.30pm today to be sure your order will be processed and don't forget I'm offering FREE P&P worth £4.95 until the end of Sale-a-Bration if you order directly through me. I can't extend that offer to website orders but rest assured, if you order from me it will still be delivered straight to your door via UPS or collect from me if you're local.

I hope you like my gatefold card. I remember when these were 'all the rage' but the crafting world moves fast and there's always a new trend taking over! I happen to think the gatefold card still has the 'wow' factor and I thought it a fitting way to mark the end of Sale-a-Bration 2014.

Be sure to keep checking my Blog and Facebook Page (Stamp With Esther) as Stampin' Up! will have plenty more excitement in store for us all this year!

Last Chance for Best of stamps

Hello Crafty friends,

During 2013, Stampin' Up! launched one 'Best of' stamp set every month. They featured old favourites brought out of retirement and one brand new stamp per set. Each set also had 1 stamp that matched one of our punches perfectly. Well, isn't that what Stampin' Up! do best?

Sadly the time has come to say goodbye to these sets, they're only available until 31 March so now is the time to get your sets. 

Don't forget Sale-a-Bration also ends 31 March so you will also earn a free gift for every £45 spend. I'm also offering FREE P&P on all orders over £45 placed directly through me, and your goodies can be delivered straight to your door via UPS if you don't live in my area.

Have a great weekend,

Esther xx

Digi Mum!

Hi everyone

I fell in love with the Happy Spring digital download that came out yesterday and had to have it straight away! That is of course the beauty of downloads, no waiting for the UPS man to deliver my Stampin' Up! goodies!

The collection is designed to be framed artwork but you can make them into cards. If you print in MDS you won't be able to change the size, it'll come out at approx 13x10cm but if you have an envelope punch board you can make an envelope that will fit it perfectly :) The other option is to create a card from the 'elements' that come as part of the download.
I used my silhouette cameo to make a standard size card as I can manipulate the size using that software.
The flower part of the image is one of the separate elements so I simply printed that out and cut a few to create some layers added some bling in the form of rhinestones and layered it onto my strawberry slush card base.

Please do let me know if I can help at all.

Have a great day

2 weeks left!

We are now in our final two weeks of Sale-a-Bration and it has flown by! Can't believe we started off in cold January and we can enjoy the end in lovely March sunshine.

It certainly wasn't this warm last March as I sat shivering in my house whilst we had a new heating system installed!

Anyway, onto the craft :)

I made a quick birthday card using the See Ya Later stamp set which is part of the Sale-a-Bration promotion. You can order this fabulous, all rounder stamp set completely free with any order over £45. I'm also offering FREE P&P (worth £4.95) to any orders £45 and over placed directly through me until 31 March 2014.

The multi colour effect and dots were both achieved by using the Stampin' Write Markers. It's great to have a play so why not see what you can do with them?

Hope you like my project, have a great day!

A little thank you

My customers are very important to me and I'm grateful & privileged that they choose me to be their Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

That's why when you order from me, you'll always find a little thank you from me in with your goodies.

Sometimes it's a card, or maybe something designed on my digital studio.
This time I made these:

Cute right?  Even better, they had a chocolate inside :) They're also very simple to make and require only a 3x6'' piece of DSP.

Click on the text not the image to view or purchase. The stamp set is a round array.

I like you

Sometimes it just has to be pink and sometimes you just need a bit of glitter and today was one of those days.

It's amazing how some pretty colours can really cheer up your day.
This card doesn't have many elements but I've added some fine details which I think make all the difference.

This is what I used:
Stamps: Hardwood & You're lovely (SAB item free with £45 spend)
Ink and Card: Whisper White, Coastal Cabana & Strawberry slush
Tools and accessories: Big Shot Machine, Deco Labels dies, Decorative Dots Embossing folder (SAB item free with £45 spend) 2-way glue pen, Dimensionals, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, adhesive pearls & Organza Ribbon.

You can order any of these items by contacting me or shop 24/7 at your leisure right here.
