I am currently working on some projects for a Christmas Extravaganza Evening I will be holding on December 3rd. More details and some sneek peeks of projects will hopefully appear over the next week or two. So until then happy stampin'.

I already have a Stampers 6 club on the go but have had a couple of more enquiries with joining in on the next one. I am aiming to start the next ones in January but if I fill another 6 places, I will start as soon as possible.
With a Stampers 6 club we have 6 members
It runs for 6 months
Each month every member commits to ordering a minimum of £25 worth of product plus P&P
Each month one of the members is selected as a "virtual" hostess and received the hostess benefits which will be a minimum of a Level 1 hostess stamp set and £15 worth of free products. This is guaranteed but it could be more.
You will receive a free copy of the catalogue.
Stampers 6 is a great way of building up your stash each month without
breaking the bank.
If you would like more information, please mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to say at the moment all those that have been in the stampers 6 have gained a level 2 in the hostess sets and also had £35 to spend in merchandise FREE for that one month.
This is all without having to hold a party at home.

2. Colour in your image. I used a mixture of ink pads and markers. A little white gel pen on the trees to indicate a little snow, brrrrrrr.
3. Dry off using your heat gun. Using a versamark pen, go all around your image and colour it in. Don’t do the open trees in the background.
4. Pour over clear embossing powder. With it being clear it’s hard to show in a photo. Heat using your heat tool. Don’t worry if you miss bits you can over with your pen and repeat the embossing process. Put to one side for now.
5. For the moon you need to either punch out a circle or cut your shape out. I am going to use my moon stamp to show how it’s used but it’s the same for a punched out circle.
At the top of the post it note (where the sticky is on the reverse), stamp your image. (Or punch out your circle). Cut it out.
6. Place the mask where you want it on your project. Using your second colour (bashful blue) and a piece of kitchen sponge. Stipple the colour around the moon.
7. Remove the mask and sponge on your first colour (barely banana). Just go outside of the moon shape to give a natural glare coming from the moon.
8. Keeping the moon clean, re place the mask back over the moon. Using your third colour (ballet blue), sponge around the edge and blend into the bashful blue as you go.
9. Cut down your image, so that it is ready for matting and layering. Now using the Night of navy ink, place colour all around the edges of the sky section only.
10. Remove the mask and sponge a little of the Apricot Appeal in the centre. This will give the moon a little more depth.
11. If you have a moon stamp, you can stamp it now using your stamp-a-ma-jig. If you have just used a punched out circle, leave as it is. Both versions look just as good. Mat and layer onto your cardstock. I choose Apricot appeal, basic black and night of navy.
First sample showing a plain moon the second with a stamp. Enjoy!

- Take a sheet of 12 x 12 cardstock and cut in half to 6 x 12 inches.
- Score at 3, 6 and 9 inches along the 12 inch edge.
- Turn 90 degrees and score again at 1.5 and 3 inches
- On the bottom panels you need to cut up to the first score line, again indicated by black lines on the photo.
- From the section cut away, cut a small piece of card 3/4" x 1.5" score in half length ways and fold. This will be your joining piece on the box. Place DST on to both panels.
- Stick this little piece to the inside of the box on the middle panel. Then stick the other side to the other end of the box, to join the sides together.
- Fold up the bottom part of the box and stick together using DST
- Cut two squares out of cardstock measuring 3.5 x 3.5 inches. Also one square out of decorative paper 3 1/4" x 3 1/4".
- You can use a corner rounder or a ticket corner punch to decorate the corners at this stage.
- Place the paper on top of one of the cardstock squares.
- You can now decorate the top. I wrapped ribbon round and tied at the side to close the box.

This was the first project we made using 'Big bold birthday' Stamp set on page 35. This is actually a treat bag that you can pop some choccies inside, and you know EVERYONE loves chocolate.
