Curvy keepsakes for a little star

Hi everyone

Again I'm so late. Sorry.

Done the food shopping, walked dogs etc etc. sometimes life is just hectic.

Anyway a couple of days ago I had the pleasure in meeting one of my team for coffee.

What were we celebrating?  Firstly it was her birthday.

Secondly she had promoted so I had a gorgeous little something for her.

This lovely stamped crumb cake curvy keepsake box.  How cute is that.

And this lovely little card.

So congratulations to Shelley for achieving Bronze 2 I'm so proud of you.

What was inside the box?  Well I'm sorry I can't tell you.  Every team member who promotes with me gets a pressure and I'd hate to spoil the surprise.

If you'd like to join my team and get £130 of goods for £99, along with a free pack of designer series paper free every month for six months then head over to my join my team page and find out how to become part of my ever growing team.

Not only do you get rewarded each time you promote, but you get a lovely started pack from me designed to help you get going.

Have a great one.

Eleanor gots around .....

Hi guys. Sorry today's post is so late..... But I've been super busy.  

What have you guys been doing?  I'd love to know.  You can always chat with me in the comments below.  

Anyway. Today's card is using the so versatile everything Eleanor,  I'm so glad I finally caved in and got this gorgeous set.  

I especially love the flourish. It looks so cool with a few well placed itty accent flowers and a great sentiment.

Today's sentiment is from the lovely A Round array set.  Lots of cute sentiments in a cute circle.  

  In this one I popped the sentiment onto the flourish.  Again I am loving crumb cake and chocolate chip.  

My ladies in class and my online customers are loving these as well.  

And today I've also been playing with another cute combination.  Island indigo and cherry cobbler, plus a little bit of silver sparkle.

Stampin UP!"s Eleanor gets chatty and has something to say.......

Lisa Cornwall, Independant Stampin UP UK Demonstrator, shop online with me at 

Hello to all my lovely Crunchie readers out there.

How are you all.  Its lovely to see you again today.

In today's Post.

  • Eleanore gets chatty and has something to day.
  • Weekly deals
  • Pick a pack of paper

This is a stamp set that I have resisted.  Its been around for ages and I wasn't sure about how much I would use it.  Oh boy was I wrong.  It just speaks to me.  I adore it.  There are so many stamps in it and I can't wait to show them to you.

Today I have combined it with the something to say stamp set - and Eleanor is saying Thank you.

I have again used one of my favourite colour combos - Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake.  (Sorry the lighting was rubbish)

As you can see I have used the Thank You from the "Something to Say" stamp set and punched it out with the Modern Label punch.

I used the gorgeous swirl from the Everything Eleanore stamp set in chocolate chip.  

I have cut a matt to go on my card, sponged with chocolate chip and then stuck down using Tombow glue.  (This is the best glue ever - no warping, amazing)

Using chocolate chip cardstock I punched out three flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack and shaped.  Then added a pearl to each.  Super easy, super effective.

A gorgeous card for my gorgeous customers.

Gorgeous grungy flowers .....

Lisa Cornwall, Independant Stampin UP UK Demonstrator, shop online with me at 

Hi guys.

How are you all today.  I can't believe its Wendesday today.  I have been looking forward to today for about a week.


Well, I now live in Somerset, but I used to live in Tintagel in Cornwall and I miss lots of my friends, and once a month or so we get together for a girlie day of chat, cake and coffee.  What could be nicer.
I know I am having a great day.  I hope you are too.


  • Gorgeous Grungy Flowers
  • Chocolate Crumb - yesterday's post
  • Special Offers


Yesterday I showed you a lovely card using the beautiful bunch stamp set.  I love this set.  But one of my other loves is gorgeous grunge.  I love love love this one.

It creates amazing backgrounds for all types of projects and goes beautifully with the flowers in today's stamp set.

How cute is that.  I have stamped the images from gorgeous grunge straight onto the card base, using real red, crumb cake and pear pizzazz.  Beautiful colours.  Adore them.

I used the tag topper punch (Scallop) to punch out my tag before stamping in real red with the Thank U from A Round Array.  Next I edged my tag with real red ink using a sponge dauber.

Adding a little ribbon at the top of the tag and attaching to my card base using dimensionals.

I punched one flower out of pear pizzazz and stamped another in real red, before punching out.  I gave them some dimension by running over them with my bone folder, before added a pearl in the centre of the flower.  I layered them up and attached to the tag.  Cute don't you think.

So two days, and two cards using the same feature stamp set.

Who's for chocolate crumbs............

Hi guys,

Todays issue from Stampin UP Uk Demonstrator Lisa Cornwall.

Firstly sorry I did not post yesterday, but unfortunately I woke to up a message from someone that can be called nothing short of nasty.  It kind of upset me and I did not want that to come through in my post.  Anyway today the sun is shining so here goes:


  • Facebook question
  • Todays card - Chocolate Crumb

Facebook Question

I don't know about you but I love the fact that I can order from Stampin UP Uk 24/7 every week of the year.  I also love the huge variety of colours in their range.  Did you know that you can shop with me 24/7 every week of the year.  Simply click on the Shop with me button in the sidebar.

I am a member of lots of groups on Facebook and one of the questions that keeps being asked is do you match your papers to your colours or your colours to your papers?

I am lucky enough that I can do either.


Because Stampin Up and Crunchie Crafts make it easy.  Stampin Up! have everything co-ordinated.  They take the hassle out of choosing my favourite paper, but using colours I don't particularly like, or using my favourite colours and trying to match to a paper stack.

Its so simple.

And talking of papers, did you know that becoming a member of Stampin UP! this month gives you six months free of designer series papers.  Yes, one pack per month. Thats £9.95 worth of pretty papers of your choice free every month for six months.  Awesome.

How do you get it?

Simple ......... join my team, either as a hobby demonstrator who just wants to purchase craft products for themselves, or as demonstrator that wants to do a bit more.  There is no pressure, the choice is entirely yours.  It costs £99 and you get £130 of goods.  Thats £31 free plus the free papers a total amount of £189.70 for just £99.  Awesome.

To find out more just head over to my page .......... join my team 


click here to be taken to the sign up form.


I am currently dieting........... I would like to loose a few pounds so that my new dresses for Convention look awesome and also so that my man is proud of me.

With that thought in mind it is never a good time to start using colours like Chocolate Chip and Crumb Cake.  Ooooh the thoughts of all that yumminess.

Anyway I managed to get through it ........... and didn't eat anything I shouldn't but I am so loving the result.

I pulled out one of my new favourites for this card - the beautiful bunch stamp set and matching punch.  I love this flower its just too cute.

I cut an A4 sheet in half (Portrait) and folded to give my card base.  Next I cut a matting layer 1/4" smaller.  I distressed the edge of this layer with chocolate chip ink on a sponge.

Next I stamped the crumb cake cardstock all over with Chocolate chip ink using the flower from the set.

I then stamped one more and punched out, before curving it using my bone folder to give some dimension.

Lastly I added a basic jewel to the middle of the flower and used a dimensional to pop it on the card,
before adding the Thank You sentiment which is from the Something to Say stamp set.  This has been punched out using the modern label punch.  Again the edge of the sentiment has been sponged to make it pop.

I hope you love this card and set as much as I do.

Take care and thanks for stopping by.
