Stampin' Up! Stall at Old Bus Depot Markets

I know it's been ages since my last post but I have just been so busy with classes, parties, getting items ready for markets every Sunday, interstate travel to Gold Coast and Darwin, and babysitting 2 little ones 2 days a week. My days just fly on by... I'm not complaining, I just wish there were more hours in the day and that I was 25 years younger!

Very popular items at the markets this year have been these snowflake ornaments that are made out of Stampin' Up! Whisper White card, some of Stampin' Up! retired stamps and framelits and the gorgeous Dazzling Diamonds.


They take a lot of cutting out strips of white card stock, but they go together pretty easily and are fun to try all different sizes. I use the Tombow glue and some bull dog clips to hold the strips once they are curved, and hot glue to attach them to the centre round. Then I use a 2 way glue pen to draw around the edges of each piece of paper and sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds over the top. 

I am really enjoying these ornaments and hope you do too.

Until next time

  1. Ann these are simply beautiful. Are you on IV feeds to get you through each day? Who stops to feed you and do all the other things you do. When do you sleep? These are such perfect things and with all the other things and classes and flying around the country my fingers are tired just from typing about it all. I really do admire all the things you do. If you are having a weekend experience (or during the week) with a group please let me know so that I can bring a friend and join in. I live in Sydney. Any time of the year is fine with us - Merry Christmas. Kay xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  2. Your snowflakes are awesome. It reminds me of quilling. Do you possibly have a tutorial on making them? They look quite large. I think they are beautiful.
    Have a wonderful Christmas!
