And since I've had my first real big holiday from stamping, and classes and everything else, I should also say "Happy New Year!!".
What an exciting way to come back from a good long break - with Sale-A-Bration in full swing and a Blog Hop to show you lots of the gorgeous products we have been using to make lovely, lovely projects!
Today, along with some of my fellow team members from the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team, we have a blog hop for you, focusing on the new Stampin’ Up! Occasions Seasonal Catalogue and also Sale-a-bration!
If you place an order with me during Sale-a-bration, you can choose a free item with every $90 you spend in one transaction. There are lots of fabulous free items to choose from (ask me for a Sale-A-Bration Flyer and an Occasions Catalogue) and the promotion goes right through until 31st March.
Better still, become part of our awesome fun, friendly and supportive Art With Heart team. We have a really large team Australia wide that has been around since Stampin’ Up! came to Australia. We have a very active team forum and also have in person stamp days, challenges, card swaps, product shares and more. When you join during Sale-a-bration, you get to choose whatever you like from our catalogues, but pay just $169 for $235 worth of product (that’s a huge discount!) and you also get to choose between two free product options. It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me how!
Now let’s get into showing you what you can make with the great new products in the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues. You may be starting here or may have come to my blog from my gorgeous friend in Adelaide, Kathryn Mangelsdorf.
Just have a lovely browse and at the end of each blog post you'll see a link button to take you to the next one, eventually you'll go full circle.
I chose to show you a couple of my FAVOURITE Sale-A-Bration products today - a stamp set, and a fabulous, gorgeous, wonderful Specialty Designer Series Paper ( DSP).
I decided to start with the DSP - it's called Irresistably Yours and yes, it's all white with delicious white embossed motifs - in this case stars. This means you can sponge, brayer, spritz all over it and then wipe the excess ink back to reveal the embossing - how could I resist sponging rainbows over it?
I teamed the lovely star design with the Confetti Stars Border Punch which was in our Holiday Catalogue and is a carry over item - along with lots of other Christmas goodies.
I then matched these two products with the cute and fun Big Day Stamp Set which is a stamp set you can choose for FREE with your Sale-A-Bration $90 order. Love this fun set!
Quite a number of Art With Heart team demonstrators attended a Stampin' Up! event last Saturday - Partytime Warragul which was a really fun day out - and as part of the preparations I made these twelve card fronts for a team swap which my team did to coincide with the event.
I loved the bright primary colours so much, and I wanted to use the stamp set a bit more, so I made another card using all the same products.
First I sponged more of the rainbow background.
Then I stamped and coloured the cake from the stamp set.
Then I put them together with some layers of Pacific Point Card stock and the super delicious White Jute Ribbon from the Occasions Catalogue. Love this card - so happy and cheerful!
Well, as you can see - I just had too much fun with these - such cheerful colours and such fun images that truly do co-ordinate with products we already have!
But, we'd better keep this blog hop hopping. Next person to visit today is Claire Daly. Click on the heart to go to her blog.
