Sale-a-bration Freebies

Hello everyone, Hope you have been finding some time for yourselves and enjoying your papercraft. I have recently made a few projects with some of the Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration freebies. The Mother's Day card also uses the Fabulous Forets which is is a great floral set in the Summer mini catalogue. (Soon to be finishing) The ribbon is part of the ribbon and brad pack. The purple card uses the Fresh Vintage Stamps, and the other is a card I made for my husbands 40th using some of the Everyday enchantment DSP and Pocket full of posies DSP. All the sale-a-bration products are fabulous and I don't want you to miss out on getting these freebies. Remember you get to choose one for every $100 you spend, so get those orders in!

A late "Happy New Year"

Well I can't believe one month of the year is already gone! I have had a holiday from creating and spending most of our time renovating. So just to get back into the swing of things I thought I'd share a project I made for my niece's kitchen tea present. We all had to bring a favourite recipe, so I made her a recepie book to keep them all in. The chipboard and pages were cut using the Stampin' Up! Top Note die, and lettering using the Stampin' Up! Medium sizzlets dies.

Stampin' Up!s Elements of Style stamp set floral stamp adds some quick decoration to my recipe.

I used the Beau chateau DSP to cover the outside and inside of the chipboard, and fussy cut some of the flowers for decoration.

It's so easy with Stampin' Up! Parlor Prints background stamp to give this beautiful design, seen on this page.

I really enjoyed doing this project and hope to maybe do one for myself. At least a few projects for myself for the year!
