Sale-A-Bration & New Catalogue Celebration Open House

The new Spring & Summer Collection 2008 (SSC 2008) catalogues are here and they have some great new stamp sets and accessories! Also, Sale-A-Bration starts February 1, 2008 and runs to March 17, 2008. During Sale-A-Bration, you can earn special Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, only available during this time period, for every $70 of product you purchase from the SSC 2008 catalogue or if you would like to host a party, for every $400 of workshop sales you obtain. Due to the high Canadian dollar, these limits are lower than last year's Sale-A-Bration. Also, this year, all Sale-A-Bration sets come dye-cut! To see the Sale-A-Bration sets available, please click on the Sale-A-Bration brochure link under "My Favorite Links" to the right.

In order to celebrate Sale-A-Bration and the new catalogue, I'm having an open house on February 9, 2008 from 12:30 - 2:30pm. Come check out the new catalogue and Sale-A-Bration brochure, do a make & take, check out retired stamp sets for sale, and of course there will be food and prizes!

Multi Purpose Card

A good friend of mine gave me a whole bunch of burgandy cardstock so I'm using it in alot of cards these days :-). This is another card that I used as a birthday card for one of the girls at work but it could be used for other occasions as well. The card base is white (5 1/2 x 8 1/2). The layers are SU Old Olive (2 3/4 x 4 3/4) and burgandy (2 1/2 x 4 1/2). The white square with the image is cut out using a scallop square punch that I got at Michaels (with a 40% off coupon, of course!). To stamp the image (from SU 2007 Sell-A-Bration set Happy Harmony), I used Bravo Burgandy and Old Olive markers and coloured on the rubber. The flowers also have glitter, which is hard to see in the picture. The sentiment, also from Happy Harmony, is stamped in Whisper White craft ink. As a finishing touch, I added white organdy ribbon.

Birthday Card

I make birthday cards for birthdays at work. This is one I made for one of the guys. The main card is white, 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded in half. I then layered burgandy (5 3/8 x 4 1/8) and SU River Rock (5 1/4 x 4) which I dry embossed with the Happy Birthday cuttle bug folder. The ribbon is SU Soft Sky double stitched ribbon. The stamp set I used is SU Hostess Garden Silhouettes in River Rock and Bravo Burgandy ink. I sponged the edge of the image piece (white 2 1/4 x 4 1/4) with Soft Sky ink. It is layered onto more burgandy card stock (2 1/2 x 4 1/2).
