Sale-A-Bration from Stampin' Up! ....... is live from 3rd January 2018 !!!

As I welcome you to our Sale-A-Bration Kick Off Event, I would like to start by wishing you, your friends and families, a very Happy New Year and may 2018 be filled with lots of creativity ! 

As you read through my Blog post today, I apologise the fonts will not display as saved and having spent 2-hours this evening trying to sort, I now have to publish for the hop. :-(

Today a group of Demonstrators from round the Globe, have joined together to bring you a wide variety of project ideas, all featuring Sale-A-Bration 2018 products, that can be earned for FREE with every £45 spent, until 31st March.

As soon as I saw the new catalogues, I immediately fell in love with this cute stamp set, Panda Party from  Sale-A-Bration.

Sadly, being so hectic over Christmas with two sets of family staying, I've had withdrawal symptoms, not being able to spend time in my Craft Studio.

Before festivities kicked off, I had managed to create the card below using the Petal Passion Designer Series Papers #145589 from the new Spring / Summer 2018 catalogue as my background, adding some Lemon Lime Twist 1/4" Ombre Ribbon #144234.

The card below was created as one of my four card designs for my monthly groups in January.  Here, I used the Bamboo effect from Textured Impressions Embossing Folders #145656 on a Lemon Lime Twist card layer.  This 2017-19 In-Colour, is such a lovely bright, fresh colour and goes really well with Basic Black card.
Next, I was looking for a different way to mount the greeting so I punched a Circle Tab punch #143754  in Black cardstock, stamp "Hi" sentiment and punched with 3/4" Circle punch #119873 to attach on to, finishing off with some Rhinestone Basic Jewels #144220.  Some Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine #141682 and a quick coat of Wink of Stella Glitter Brush #141897 finished off the card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my projects today.  Don't forget, if you love this stamp set and would like to earn for FREE, please visit my Online Shop in the link below, and quoting the January Hostess Code.
