Launch of 2020 January-June Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration Brochure

Earlier this month I held an open house event in my home to launch the Stampin’ Up!  January – June (J J) Mini Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure.  I prepared lots of samples using some of the new products  and we had Make N Takes, Prizes, Nibbles, Bubbles and everyone got to take home a copy of the Mini Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. 

We had lots of fun and I wanted to share some of the projects from that day.  It was a small group, maybe something to do with the fact that it was 42 degrees, although the aircon did a great job of keeping us cool.

Paper Crafting Blog Hop – The Gang’s All Meer

PaperCraftingBlogHopBadge

I hope you are enjoying this month’s Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator’s Blog Hop featuring Sale-A-Bration projects. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have lots of fun projects to share with you. You may have arrived from Maureen Rauchfuss’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

TheGangsAllMeerCardStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan09012020

I wanted to use The Gang’s All Meer stamp set because it’s SO cute. And I love the Stone Embossing Folder! When my friend and downline, Vicki, opened her Demonstrator pre-order, I was with her and she pulled out this folder and said “What is this? I didn’t order this!” So we searched the documentation and found that it came as a Sale-A-Bration freebie, bundled with the Power of Hope Stamp Set. Then we both decided that we loved it and had to use it on everything.

I was really happy with this card. Bermuda Bay is one of my favourite colours and I think it looks great with the Stone Texture. The DSP ties all the colours together and the new Stitched So Sweetly Dies are a whole new level of sweet, with the petite scalloped edge as well as the stitching.

Supplies used:

Stamps: – The Gang’s All Meer (free during Sale-A-Bration when you spend AU$90)

Card: – Bermuda Bay, Whisper White, Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper (January-June Mini Catalogue)

Ink : – Memento Tuxedo Black, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso and Night of Navy Watercolour Pencils.

Tools: – Stone 3D Embossing Folder (free, as part of the Power of Hope Bundle during Sale-A-Bration, when you spend A$180), Stitched So Sweetly Dies (January-June Mini Catalogue), Blender Pen

Embellishments: – Sequins
