Love these little treat holders Jill made for her customers. Love the chocolate buttons as well. Always good to have these ideas for little treats.

Jill made this card for a winter birthday themed blog hop we were both on on Saturday. This card proves once again that Jill is the Queen of Clean & Simple cards.

Finally Jill has made a lovely Christmas card using the lovely Stitched Snowflakes dies. I didn't think I needed these dies as I have So Many Snowflakes but Jill keeps making such lovely cards with them! 





I hope you enjoyed the projects I chose and I hope you will go and check out Jill's Blog.

Winter Birthday Card Using Christmas Die

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Today I am bringing you the tutorial for the card I made for the InspireINK blog hop and our theme this month was Winter Birthday. I made a 60th masculine card for the blog hop but for the tutorial I changed it into a 50th card for a female friend. I love how a change of colour, orientation and embossing folders changes the whole look of the card. 

Winter Birthday Card Using Christmas Die


Measurements and Materials


  • Card base 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
    • Score @ 4 1/8" on the long side
  • Card mat 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"

Now watch the video tutorial to see how this was made :-)

Ink & Share Scrapbook October Blog Hop - Sketch Challenge

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Today I am hopping with the Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop. Scrapbooking was my first crafting that I did seriously. I love recording events and try to scrapbook all our big holidays. This layout shows some more pictures fro our holiday in the US we did in 2019. We visited a great pizza place on Bleaker St and could not believe the size of the pizza. Thankfully we were sharing and they were able to make half vegetarian and half for Ed!  I took photos in the lift of our hotel every night on our way out because it had a huge mirror and was easy and good lighting. The bottom 2 photos are from a lovely lunch we had after visiting the 9/11 memorial. It was lovely and peaceful and had lots of tables with seats. There were loads of people eating their lunch there and so many places to chose from for food. I was also sheltered by lots of trees. SO I took the trees as my inspiration for the DSP I used and die cut some leaves from the Beauty Of The Earth DSP. It was hard to believe we were in a very busy part of the city.

Measurements and Materials

  • My photos were slightly smaller than the sketch said as they were already printed 
    • 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"
  • The mat for the 4 photos 8"x8"
  • I cut strips of DSP 2", 1 1/2" & 1" wide and flagged the ends to stick out the side
    • I did cheat a bit and use a retired punch! 
  • I cut the title using matching card stock, Mossy Meadow & Old Olive with the Playful Alphabet dies, an absolute must for scrapbooking I think
  • I used the Quiet Meadow dies and Intricate Leaves for the decoration and Scallop Contour dies fo the little border 


Time for the closeups!
