Hello there! Today I have a few projects for you featuring the second-release SAB products. All of the original SAB rewards are still available, but now we have a few extra options to pick from:) My favorite is the Blossoming Basket Bundle. It comes with the Blossoming Basket stamp set and the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder.

I opened up the embossing folder and ran a Crumb Cake spot over it. I then placed a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock inside and ran it through the Big Shot. The ink added a little extra definition and texture. I distressed the edges and adhered it to a Crumb Cake base. I stamped the basket onto a piece of Shimmery White Cardstock and heat-embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I added a wash over the background using a Pool Party pad and an Aqua Painter. After it dried I colored the basket with Sahara Sand and Crumb Cake Markers. I colored the leaves with Lemon Lime Twist & Old Olive. The flowers were colored with Peakaboo Peach & Daffodil Delight for the centers.

I was going to use my Stampin' Blends to color but they're over at my Stampin' Pad, ready to go for my TNT! class tomorrow-which I'm praying doesn't get canceled AGAIN due to weather! And I was too lazy to walk across the street to get them:) I stamped the sentiment & butterflies with Crumb Cake ink and used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the oval. I cut out the butterflies with my Paper Snips and attached them with Glue Dots. I tucked a piece of Very Vanilla Lace Trim under the oval with Glue Dots & adhered the sentiment with Dimensionals.

The Blossoming Basket Bundle is a Level 2 reward meaning that you can earn it for FREE with a $100 order. I'm really excited to share that the Basket Weave Embossing Folder will be carrying over into the 2018-2019 Annual catalog!

Next up is the gorgeous Springtime Foils Specialty DSP. You get 3 each of 4 patterns in 12" x 12" sheets. And it's really sturdy-it works great for boxes or 3-D projects. I covered a Narrow Note Card with one of the designs and colored the leaves with Lemon Lime Twist & Old Olive Markers.

The sentiment is from the 3rd SAB product, the Eclectic Expressions stamp set. I stamped it in Old Olive ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I punched out the banner from another pattern using the Duet Banner Punch. I colored the stripes with an Old Olive Marker, adhered it to the sentiment and attached it with Dimensionals.

I added a piece of Linen Thread to a True Gentlemen Button and tucked it under the banner with a Glue Dot. I then added the background with Old Olive ink and Eclectic Expressions.

This was a super quick & easy card and I just love the adorable little size of the notecards.

The third SAB addition is the Eclectic Expressions stamp set. It has a couple of great sentiments and some cool watercolor images. I started with a Dapper Denim base and added a piece of Sweet Soiree DSP to it. I started in the center of a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and stamped the larger watercolor image with Daffodil Delight ink a couple of times, overlapping slightly. I then went over it at the top and the bottom with the smaller image.

I overlapped the Daffodil Delight with Old Olive and Flirty Flamingo. I then used Dapper Denim ink for the splatter image. I added a couple strips of washi tape from the Basics Pack 3 and adhered it to a piece of Daffodil Delight Cardstock.

I wrapped a piece of Dapper Denim Bakers' Twine around and tied a bow. I adhered it to the DSP with Dimensionals and I finished it off with an In Color Glitter Acrylic Shape.

I hope you got some inspiration for these fun new additions to our Sale-A-Bration season! Make sure to come back tomorrow as I'll have some more goodies to share:) Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hello there! For the month of February, I'm giving everyone who places a $50 order a FREE gift! I've been busy making cards out of the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack, which is a Sale-A-Bration item that you can get for FREE!

Each person placing a $50 order during February will get an Acetate Box filled with 5 of these gorgeous cards for FREE, along with a SAB product!

I was able to make 22 cards from 1 pack and I used every single card!

I was also able to make cards for several different occasions: Birthday, wedding, could use your own greetings and make them work for any occasion you need.

I cut some flowers out of the cards and coordinating Sweet Soiree DSP by hand. I also used the Cake Soiree Bundle for stamping and die-cutting.

The beauty of the memories & More Card Packs is that you can make really nice cards really fast. This one took about 5 minutes!

Or you can spend a little more time on them and make them as elaborate as you want by adding ribbon, washi tape and embellishments.

The colors used in this card pack are: Basic Grey, Berry Burst, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Flirty Flamingo, Marina Mist, Old Olive, Powder Pink, Rich Razzleberry & Whisper White.

The  Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack makes beautiful, quick & easy cards, but it will also make a beautiful album, especially if you have a wedding coming up!

Included in this pack are 20-6" x 4" cards and 52-4" x 3" cards, for a total of 72 cards. I simply trimmed the 6" cards to 5 1/2" to fit a standard-sized card base.

You get 2 of each card in a pack so I was able to make 2 of each card shown.

And you'll have enough cards that you can make the insides just as pretty as the outside:)

I hope you'll take advantage of this great offer, but there's only 1 week left! Email me today with your $50 order and choose the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack as your FREE SAB item, and have 11 ideas for it right away! Or try out the other amazing card packs in the Annual & Occasions Catalogs. Make sure to stop back tomorrow for some projects made with the brand new Second-Release Sale-A-Bration products! Thanks so much for coming by:)

Hello there! Happy Valentine's Day to you! This is one of the cards we'll be making at my upcoming TNT! Tuesday Class. We'll be playing with the Stampin' Blends Markers and I'll be sharing tips & techniques with you. If the DSP and flower look unfamiliar to you it's because they're part of the brand new second release Sale-A-Bration items that will be available on Friday! I'd like to introduce you to the lovely Springtime Foils Specialty DSP, a product you can get for FREE with a $50 order! The DSP includes 3 sheets of 4 different designs, with a mixture of copper, silver & gold foil. And it colors beautifully with the Stampin' Blends Markers:)

We'll also be making these beautiful cards using the Color Me Happy Bundle which was designed to work with the Stampin' Blends. The Color Me Happy stamp set and Color Me Happy Project Kit can be bought separately or as a bundle, which saves you 10%. They're both only available while supplies last, so they'd be perfect to order at Tuesday's class and get the class for FREE!

Each attendee will get to make one or two of these cards, depending on how many are attending. Make plans to attend TNT! (Tips & Techniques) Tuesday on February 20th from 6-8 at the Stampin' Pad. The cost is $15 or get the class for FREE with a $25 order! The clear-mount Color Me Happy Bundle is $39.50 and the wood-mount set is $46.75. Add a few Stampin' Blends Markers to bump up your order to the $50 mark and get a FREE SAB product, like the gorgeous Springtime Foils DSP!

Please let me know if you plan to attend TNT! on Tuesday so I can have a little surprise for you! I hope to hear from you soon:) Thanks so much for stopping by!
