Spotlight On: Lovely as a Tree

Published by under cards | Apr 30 2012


Lovely as a Tree is one of those stamp sets that has been around for a long time… but there's a reason for that!

It's such a beautiful and versatile set.

Lovely As A Tree

Many new stampers I've met over the years have fallen in love with this golden oldie. We used it recently at a Workshop while doing a few different techniques, including 'Thumping' and 'Faux Leather'.



If you've had this set for a while, dig it out and have another go. Now there's a challenge for you. 🙂  


And if you don't have this set, you can find all the details on page 68 of the current Idea Book & Catalogue.

I can arrange for delivery to your door if you want this for your own – contact me for more information (and for a little surprise when placing your order).


Hope you have a great week. Things will be a little different here this week with the two oldest kiddlets at camp. Our littlest Miss has mum and dad all to herself and is planning on making the most of it! 

Happy stamping, 








Thinking about having a Workshop?

Want to get together to play with new Stampin' Up! products?
Has it been a while since your last workshop?
Have you been toying with the idea of hosting your own?

Being a hostess means:

– you can earn free products!
– you can help choose the Make & Takes or demonstration products
– you get a free thank you gift from me
– you and your friends can learn new papercrafting techiniques = more confidence!

I've got a couple of dates available for May workshops, and am also now booking for June and July. Contact me for more info.
