There are three ways for you to earn free stamp sets:
  • Spend. For every £45 you spend, you can choose one Sale-A-Bration set.
  • Host. For every £300 in workshop sales, as hostess, you can choose an exclusive Sale-A-Bration set. This is in addition to the already fabulous hostess rewards!
  • Join. New recruits can choose any stamp set from the 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalogue (valued up to £44.95) when they become a demonstrator during Sale-A-Bration.

So, I've been busy making some cards using the stamps from the sale-a-bration promotion..........

So the first cards are made using a combination of the Bliss and So happy for you stamp sets. I have combined these with designer paper in neutrals, crumb cake and baja breeze card and ink.

This one uses the Sweet Summer stamp set.

I got the idea for these two whilst visiting Michelle Last's blog. When I saw them I just had to have a go myself. She had created some wonderful cards just like these but using the Brights designer patterned paper. Thanks for sharing your wonderful creations Michelle. Mine use the neutrals designer patterned paper.

Well that's all for today.....see you soon!

More sneak peaks of the January workshop.

These two cards were also made using the Just Believe stamp set and Elegant Soiree papers. Ink colours used are crumb cake, soft suede and baja breeze.

This layout uses layered Elegant Soiree paper and once again the Just Believe Stamp set. The flowers are made using the boho blossoms punch. The petals have also been layered and curled to add dimension.
This is one of the last photos taken of our two girls, now that two have become one.

Happy New Year!

I hope that the New Year brings good health and happiness for all of my friends and family.
I am hoping that today's layout picture doesn't tempt more of the white stuff to fall from the skies!

Today I am posting the first of the page samples for my Stampin' Up workshop in January. I have used the 'Just Believe' stamp set and 'Elegant Soiree' patterned paper set. 
I used soft suede and very vanilla cardstock, along with crumb cake and soft suede ink for the stamping. My paper snips scissors came in very handy for all the fine detail cutting around the foliage stamping!
