5 Projects Using... Simply Creative Sugar Rush


Here are 5 projects using the Simply Creative 'Sugar Rush' papers from Trimcraft. There are instructions on how to make them below each picture.


  1. Cut several pieces of patterned paper and arrange on a 12x12" sheet. Distress the edges and stick down.
  2. Cut a piece of acetate and cover in confetti glitter glue (allow a few hours to dry) and cut in half.
  3. Print your photo at 4x4" and mount onto patterned paper.
  4. Using the same glitter glue, cover the alpha stickers you will use for your title. 
  5. In pink ink, stamp some emojis, die cut or punch them out and colour their eyes with 3D Pearl Effects.
  6. Arrange the glitter acetate, title and embellishments and your photo, then stick down.
  7. Punch little hearts from glitter card and arrange around the layout.
  8. Spatter the layout with coloured ink.


  1. Take a board (I think this one is from shirt packaging) and layer up patterned papers onto it. On each layer, distress the edges and then add ink.
  2. In between the layers, have doilies and paper flowers sticking out from the edges. 
  3. Stamp flowers up the left side of the piece.
  4. Paint the birdcage using white paint first and then your chosen colour. 
  5. Stick the birdcage to the piece and allow to dry.
  6. Using a heat gun, stick ribbons to the left side of the piece. 
  7. Add flowers too. To make the large flowers, cut petal shapes from foam, add a little colour and then use a heat gun to make the petals curl. Use a heat gun to stick the petals together and finish with a button.
  8. Add bunting and gems to the birdcage.


  1. Stamp four flamingos onto different papers and cut out. You may need a craft knife for the fiddly bits. 
  2. On an A6 card blank, stick a length of washi tape along the bottom.
  3. Arrange the flamingos so they are standing on the tape. 
  4. Finish with adhesive gems and a sentiment. 


This card uses free printables available to download from the Trimcraft website.


  1. Print and cut out your chosen elements. Cut the centre from the frame and stick the swan tag behind it, trimming off the excess.
  2. Arrange the frame and 'thanks' banner on patterned paper and stick down, including a leaf in the sandwich. Cut around the edge leaving a small border.
  3. Stick in the centre of a 13cm square of patterned paper. Stick to a card blank.
  4. Finish with co-ordinating buttons.


  1. Die cut 36 hearts from patterned paper. Arrange in a grid on a 12x12" sheet of patterned paper so there are 6 in every row and column. Stick down with glue when you are happy with the layout.
  2. Using a sewing machine, sew lines down each column of hearts. You could also stitch manually and try different embroidery stitches. 
  3. Print your photo at 3x2" and mount. 
  4. Add 3D foam to the back of the photo and stick the the bottom right corner.
  5. Add a few embellishments but use them sparingly.
Thanks for stopping by!
