Sale-A-Bration ends today! Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP

The very first Sale-A-Bration product I featured on my blog was the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP, and it's the very last one I'll feature as well.  It was my favourite from the beginning, and even a after three months and the addition of hoards of new products, it's my favourite at the end. 

Today is the last day of Sale-A-Bration.  Waaahhhh!  We've had three beautiful months together, earning magnificent freebies and creating gorgeous projects with them.  But it's time to say goodbye. 

It's okay if you're upset.  I am too.  It's going to be hard on us, but we'll get through it.  We will go on together, and we can lean on one another for support.  And in nine months, we'll be reunited with our lost love.

Sniff, sniff!  (One last order going in today, or shop online 24/7 with the links below!)

2 Days Left of Sale-A-Bration! Sheer Perfection Vellum

Say it isn't so!  We are down to the final two days of Sale-A-Bration 2015.  It's the most wonderful time of year to buy, sell, host, and join with Stampin' Up!

For today and tomorrow, I wanted to feature two projects that focus on my two favourite Sale-A-Bration freebies; today's is the Sheer Perfection Vellum.

My fabulous friend Allison featured the coloured vellum butterflies a few weeks ago as her Artisan project, and the idea just called to me.  It's such a knockout!  I paired it with the On Film and Hello You Framelits to create this easy and beautiful card.

I will have my final Sale-A-Bration order going in tomorrow, so don't hesitate to contact me to get your Sheer Perfection Vellum before it's gone!

Crafting time with friends means hands-on playtime with stamps I don't have!  It's so fun to get to toy around with new goodies from time to time - I went right for Balloon Bash from the Occasions 2015 catalog.

This birthday card was inspired by the colour pallet - I wanted to use a combo of Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, Strawberry Slush and Old Olive with crisp Whisper White.  Such a fun colour combo just cried out to be used for a bright, cheery occasion like a young girl's birthday!

The "HB" needed a "2U" - which I made with Simply Pressed Clay and coloured by smushing them into an ink pad - and an "@birthdaygirl" to complete the text-speak sentiment.  I definitely have to save this for my much-younger cousin or a friend's daughter - I think my friends and family are all too old to get what I'm trying to say!  Hahaha...

We're wrapping up Sale-A-Bration this month so now's the time to get those orders in!  You'll get one free item for each $60 CAD spent - like the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP or the Thick Baker's Twine in 2014-2016 In-Colours!

See you again soon!

Gosh, You're Adorable!

When we were in California in January having a visit with my parents, my son (he's 3) was admiring his Bapka over dinner one night and then just chuckled and said "Oh, you're adorable!"  It was honestly one of the funniest moments ever.  He had us all in stitches.

Anyway,  this sentiment from Snuggles & Smooches totally reminds me of that moment.  I'm quite sure this card will be from my son to his Grandpa and Bapka.

I just got the Stacked With Love DSP stack in and I'm absolutely in love with it.  Why did I wait so long?!  The fabulous black/white/red graphic prints are just to die for.  And that's coming from a girl who rarely uses DSP!

See you on Wednesday for a super-fun birthday card!
