Last Gasp - Sale-a-Bration

Last Saturday I held a pop up class - Last Gasp of Sale-a-Bration.  Despite the fact that I got the times wrong (been doing that a LOT lately!) I was in fact home when people arrived - and ready.  (I thought they were coming half an hour earlier!)

Sale-a-Bration finishes at the end of the month so I wanted to remind them of what they could get for FREE (and also remind you!)

Two of the most popular items from the first release are Party Pandas and the gorgeous Tutti Frutti notecards.  They partner perfectly to contrast the colourful with the black and white!

By far the most popular item in the second release is the Springtime Foil DSP.  Yummy!  For this card we brayered it with Basic Gray Archival Ink which really makes the metallics pop.

I love this DSP so much that we used it on another card which also featured the Blossoming Basket Bundle.  This bundle is free with a $180 order and featured the gorgeous flowers in a basket stamp set and the Basket Weave Dynamic Embossing Folder.

The centre flower was stamped and fussy cut then popped up on Dimensionals.  We added some Wink of Stella and tiny pearls to finish off.  I love this card!

The last stamp set we played with was Eclectic Expressions.  This is one of those fun stamp sets where you build up the images on top of one another and the results are beautiful and soooo versatile.

To view the 1st and 2nd release SAB items, it's best to view the PDF by clicking HERE.

Stampin' Up! has also announced a 3rd release of products.  These are existing items from the catalogue but during SAB you can earn them for FREE.

If you would like to order online, please visit my online store by clicking HERE.  Use the hostess code MFFTTAAC in your shopping basket.

Or drop me an email at or phone me on 07 55 765 469.

Sale-a-Bration ends in two weeks!

Our most fantastic promo of the year ends in just two weeks.

To finish strong, Stampin' Up! has released a 3rd round of SAB offerings.  All SAB items are still available and these extras are catalogue products that might just be on your wish list...

One of the beautiful second release products is the Blossoming Basket Bundle.  So many of the samples show the basket coloured in but in my 'SAB Last Gasp' class tomorrow, we are making this card with NO COLOURING!  (not that I don't love to colour!)

This card uses the beautiful Springtime Foil Specialty DSP (another SAB item) and the Blossoming Basket stamp set - stamped in Soft Suede.  The middle flower is stamped again, fussy cut and popped up on dimensionals and then "Wink of Stella-ed" to give it that gorgeous shine.

And you might spy in the background the Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder:  part of the Blossiming Basket Bundle FREE with a $180 spend during SAB.

If you'd like to place an order let me know.  You get freebees for every $90 spent.  And if you have a big wish list the best value is to JOIN UP!  It's a no brainer with more details HERE.

I would love you to join my team and I would LOVE  you to receive a great discount on your products every time you order!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Paper Angels Team Day! A Classy Event

Twice a year I team up with my Stampin' Up!® buddy and fabulous friend Bec to run a combined team day.  And we invite others from our wider team along too!

Here's Bec and I.  We dress like this all the time and carry silver letters. #wheatbix

Our aim is to provide a day of fun and inspiration where demonstrators can get together and STAMP!

We held three sessions of make and takes....

We had a couple of information sessions...

Participants would join in swaps of card fronts and or 3D items.  Here's one attendee's collection of 3D swaps.

Here are the make and takes in their sets...

These cards, using the Truly Tailored stamp set, went from clean and simple, to stepped up, to and "Outside, Inside, Envelope" card.

A set of notecards in a box is always a winner...

And these cards explored a variety of techniques with one stamp.

All up we had a fabulous day of "funraising."

Don't forget that joining my team during Sale-a-Bration gives you two extra free stamp sets AND you'll become part of a fabulous group of women and join in fantastic evens like this one!
