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!
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.

Do you recognise this card as being similar to the one on the cover of the Sale-A-Bration Brochure? It is another joint creation by Vicki and myself. I wanted a card for the display board at my launch which showed the main image from the Lovely Lattice Stamp Set cut up into smaller images, showing its versatility. It also shows that anyone can make beautiful cards just by case-ing other works. Copy And Share Everything is what this means, in case you were wondering. And it is polite to link back to the work that inspired you.
Once again, Vicki did the colouring and I did the assembly and stamping. The colours are Highland Heather and Calypso Coral. We had fun, as usual. I think this is a lovely card. What do you think?
Wecome back to my blog and thanks for dropping by.
I held my Open House to launch the 2019 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogues on 12 January. I had six ladies attend and I think they enjoyed themselves. It was a welcome distraction from the 36deg heat outside. We had a game, a tour of the new catalogues, food and bubbles and make n takes, display boards and I hope some fun. There was lots of laughter anyway.
Above are some of the products I used to create the card. If you live in Australia and don’t have a demonstrator, I would love to be your demonstrator. If you click on the product code above you will go straight to my 24/7 secure online store and add it to your cart. And remember to use the January host code to go in to my monthly draw.
Also, Sale-A-Bration is the best time to join the Stampin’ Up! family. There is an additional $80 worth of products you can choose for your kit and an optional extra Craft and Carry Tote at less that half the retail value. See details in the image below. Contact me if you’d like to join my team or find out more.
