 Let's SAB (sale-a-brate)  Have you seen the new SAB brochure yet (see below)?  I just love all the products, one of my favorites is the FREE Bubbles & Fizz DSP that matches the adorable Bubble Over Bundle.  I think the paper is sometimes over looked but so cute and I love that it coordinates with the stamp set~ makes it easy peasy to work with.

So this is my sample for the blog hop using the FREE BUBBLES & FIZZ DSP from the SAB brochure. So how do you get something free in the SAB brochure?  Just place an order from $50 or more from my website HERE  and you get a free product

Did you see the little ribs from the straw bending?  Adorable just adorable. 

Click on these products to order directly from my website but don't forget to use Hostess Code#AUZMF3DY for a gift from me at the end of the month.

Check out these free products from the Sale a Bration Brochure.

Crafting Forever

Yesterday I made this card for my hairdresser.  I have been using the saying "Do Something Creative Every Day" for paper crafters but let's face it hairdressers are creative everyday--- to put it mildly they work miracles every day!  Today when I went to get my hair cut I gave Michelle this card.  It has a piece underneath it so it will stand up on her counter.  She loved it. You never know what inspires someone to think about stamping.


On another note this is a calendar I made this week.  I will be offering it at my February Stamp Camp.  I love the Waterfront Stamp set in the new occasions catalog.

Happy 100th Birthday

Last week my neighbor from Canada asked me to check for a card for a 100th birthday for her friend next time I went to the store.  I chuckled, I said I am pretty sure I can find one for you.  Today I had some design time and I came up with the fun card for her friend.  I do love the eclipse technique.

You stamp your main image and then cut out the numbers or letters you want to use and separate them and put them back together and use dimensionals to put them back together so they look slightly raised.

Netta loved the card when I gave it to her to mail to her friend.

Celebrate You = FREE Dies

Have you looked at the SAB catalog yet?  There are some amazing FREE products and this is one of them.  This week I have been working on samples for classes and events etc.  I had been working on several things and these elements were sort of just laying against each other and it caught my eye.  I love the sharp contrast of Basic Black and Lemon Lime Twist.

The free product I used is Celebrate You Thinlits Dies #146840.  When you purchase $100 you get that thinlit FREE. Click the picture below and it will take you right to my website. Plus you can earn the Amazing You Stamp set to go with it.  So if you are thinking of ordering $150 from both the annual catalog and the occasions catalog you can get both for FREE plus there is more when you reach the $150 in an order you get $15 FREE of anything in the other catalogs as hostess rewards.  WIN WIN WIN for sure.  Contact me if you need more information about SAB- FREE STUFF

Check out the video for more ideas.

Stampin' Bunco ~ Celebrating 30 Years!~Grab Bags

This past week I played Stampin' Bunco with my friends and as always we had so much fun.  I have started offering projects each month.  Earlier in January,  I was in a card swap with other demonstrators across the country and I loved this card by Robyn Scherzer and this was my inspiration.  Thank you Robyn for swapping with me.

I had to have 3 different cards since we have 3 tables of 4 people this was the perfect set Fruit Basket and the Itty Bitty Fruit punches to match.

So each table had a different fruit to make these sweet cards with. I also used those two new scallop punches.

Grab Bags
I have been trying to organize my stamp room and get my retired things in a box and decided to bag them up for a Grab Bag (filled with stamp sets, framelits, ribbon, card samples.)  These are a few I have left.  They are each $25 and you would have to pay shipping to you or pick up if you are local. I will take Paypal only for payment.  So contact me with the grab bag number you want and we will exchange information.
