I used the Good Egg for my Lollipop Gift Box. That Chick is so cute isn't he?
Can't really believe Easter is this weekend, and it will be April!
Pop over to Dawn's Blog for more details of the Current and Future Ustamp's.
Thanks for looking,
The stamp set is Vintage Vogue from the new Mini Catalogue which goes LIVE on April 1st.....This stamp set will be perminately on my desk, I think!!! LOVE IT so much. The flowers are so easy to cut out and all the little leaves etc are so perfect.
Sharon loves Purple, so I decided to use Elegant Eggplant, Lavendar Lace and Pumpkin Pie. The pearls are from the Pretties Kit.
I made a gift box for Sharons Gift to go inside from the Grooms Speciality Papers. I have completely run out of these now. They really are so gorgeous.
The card is an Easel card, but a long version. You can get so much more on this size.
Anyway, Hope to upload some more bits before we go on Holiday.
Thanks for looking,

I think this stamp set called Vintage Vogue is going to be one of my favourite's. It has a matching wheel as well. This is the card I gave to my lovely Downline that managed to come to the Reading Training event. The papers are another Sneak peak....It comes from a huge Designer paper pack called Sweet Pea - 48 Sheets!!!!
When I saw the papers, I couldn't stop stroking them, they are gorgeous.
I decorated a note pad, pen and ruler all to match. Can you see the felt flowers?
Oh My! They are stitched felt flowers, leaves and spots. There are 52 pieces in the pack. They match a stamp set and the papers.
This was my swap card for the Stampin Up Demonstrators. I used the Bird on a Branch. The colours are Ballet Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate chip and Very Vanilla.
Your eyes haven't gone funny - Yes its CHOCOLATE CHIP SATIN RIBBON hee hee
New Punches are in the catalogue as well!!! They are a new design as well, they fold up flat for neat storage.
Another Project using the Carousel Note cards a Little Pram which can hold some bibs or booties. (Actually they are Men's sports socks - they didn't have booties or bibs in the shop near me!! hee hee) More lovely Sweet Pea flowers.
Along the 11 1/4" side, Score at 2", 5 1/2", 7 1/2", 11"
Along the 4" side, Score at 2"

Do the same to the third carousel note.
The fourth carousel note is the same as the first one but this time score to the centre at 3 to 6o'clock section NOT the 6 to 9. Do the same with the square punch, This will give you a mirror image of the first carousel note.
Right then, Are you still with me???? hee hee
It folds flat but depending on the layers. You can tie it closed with the ribbon.

You can find your nearest Demonstrator by clicking on the Stampin Up Website on the left hand side of my blog and go under the Demonstrator Finder.
I was roped into doing a demonstration on a Product from the Stampin Up Catalogue. The Carousel notes come in a pack of 12, 4 Pretty in Pink, 4 So Saffron and 4 Mellow Moss, plus you get 12 gorgeous Chocolate Chip envelopes to match.
An easy way of making a special card is by joining two of the carousel notes together.
Just score a line between 6 scallops on the left. Join together with another Carousel note by using two jumbo eyelets. Tie a bow using the taffeta ribbon. This one is using the Live Your Dream stamp set.
I decorated the lid of a gift box with another one of the Carousel notes. Score a line every 6 Scallops, you will end up with a scored square in the centre of the Carousel note. Use double sided tape to add to the top of the box to match the card. The Pretties kit was used to add some flowers on top.
This is the Mellow Moss Carousel Notes. Close your eyes now if you don't want to think about Christmas Cards!!!! hee hee The stamp set is Scandinavian Season, stamped in Always Artichoke and coloured in with Mellow Moss marker. Dazzling Diamonds glitter was added to sections of the Tree.
The box to match is similar to the Live Your Dream one. Just two lids instead of a bigger box.
You can see the score lines better here between each 6 scallops.
Don't forget the inside!!
This one is using the So Saffron Carousel notes and the A Good Egg stamp set.
The chocolate easter eggs were put in one of our large cello bags and a carousel note was wrapped around to make a cone shape. I held it in place with some double sided tape.
The paper is Tea party designer paper. I coloured in the chick with the Barely Banana SU Marker pen.
I will be changing the ribbon on these for my sons Easter Egg hunt at Easter - Eyes rolling!!! He's 15 and still wants an Easter Egg hunt. We are always in a caravan at Easter - How many places can you hide Chocolate Eggs in a Caravan........Tons of places. Keeps him busy for hours!
