Last Month of Sale-a-Bration!

March 1st begins the last month of Sale-a-Bration (SAB), and to kick it off, we are featuring products from the best sale of the year in this month’s Blog Hop.  If you’ve arrived from Di’s blog, thanks for hopping along.

As if there weren’t enough great SAB gifts to choose from, Stampin’ Up! has added three new choices!  My favorite, so far, is the Glimmer Paper Assortment pack – 12 sheets, 3 colors, 4 sheets of each beautiful color!  In today’s project, I chose to work with the Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugar Plum papers, the third color in the assortment is Bermuda Bay.  You’ve got to see these papers for yourself – they are gorgeous!! 3-1-17

I started with a base of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock topped with a DSP layer from the Succulent Garden pack.  I used the Layering Squares framelits to cut a piece of the Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper, then added a Whisper White layer cut with the Stitched Shapes framelits.  The Sweet Sugarplum stamped images I used are from Flourishing Phrases, and I added two die cuts from the Flourish Thinlits Dies.  The Layering Ovals and Stitched Shapes Framelits were used to cut the greeting assembly.  The card was finished with a bow made with the 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon.

I know you’re going to enjoy Kathya’s project, so off you go to see what she has in store for you.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Remember that Sale-a-Bration awards are only available while supplies last – so get your favorites before they’re gone!


In case you get off track – our hoppers are:




Sending Good Thoughts Scalloped Tag Topper Card tag topper 4I have another Scalloped Tag Topper card for you today!  These are so fun to make, and I’ve got a pile of them on my desk…

This one starts off with a Pistachio Pudding base that was punched with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch.  I posted a video here showing just how that was done.  The front layer is from the Sweet Sorbet DSP pack that you can still get today as part of the Sale-a-Bration promo.  (It ends at midnight tonight – don’t wait!!)  The greeting is from Perfect Pennants and was die-cut with the Banners Framelits Dies.  A second Crisp Cantaloupe banner was layered behind the greeting, and a square of Pistachio Pudding was stamped with the dots from Perfect Pennants and layered behind both banners.  Flowers were stamped and punched with the Petite Petals bundle with matching punch.  The card is held closed with twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory pack.  The patterned inside is a piece of cardstock stamped in Pistachio Pudding ink with the Petal Parade stamp set – makes a cute DSP, doesn’t it?!

All supplies for this card can be found in my online store, but if there are Sale-a-Bration products you’ve got your eye on, don’t wait as today is the last day for them…  For your convenience, all the photos below are clickable links to the ordering page!



Sale-a-Bration Thank You Shop Thank You 1Seems like I’m just hitting my stride with Sale-a-Bration, but alas, we have just a couple more days before it’s over…

Today’s Thank You card uses some of the paper from the Sweet Sorbet DSP pack that you can get for free with a $50 order.  It also uses the Flower Shop and Petite Petals stamp sets and matching punches.  Coincidentally, the stamp/punch bundles for these sets, when added together, total exactly $50.00!  How’s that for a Sale-a-Bration combination?

The other thing I’m absolutely loving about this card is the Thank You from Lots of Thanks paired with the frame from Sweetly Framed (which matches the Decorative Label punch).  Ahhh – Stampin’ Up!  They make it so easy to create great-looking stuff…

Scalloped Tag Topper Card Tutorial tag topper 1I’ve been on a quest to find a good overhead camera mount that would work in my studio set-up.  A few weeks ago, I stumbled upon a tutorial to make one for relatively little $$ that seemed like it would work.  Two problems – I didn’t have the tools to do it with and the way they showed the camera being mounted would have given me an upside-down video.  Ugh!  I showed the tutorial to my brother, Bill, and enlisted his help to create a customized version.  Not only did he have the tools to work with, but he was able to engineer a solution to the upside-down problem!  In just a couple of days, he had the whole thing built for me and let me tell you, it works like a charm!!

I gave the new addition a test run over the weekend and was able to produce my very first video tutorial for you!  I am a neophyte at this stuff, and am still on a learning curve for the video editing program I’m using, but for a first effort, I think it turned out pretty good.  So, without further adieu, here’s how to make this card…

Card Base:  8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
