Sale-a-Bration Kick Off Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our Sale-a-Bration 2018 BLOG HOP!  We have an amazing group of demonstrators in this hop that will be showing you ideas using the FREE PRODUCTS you can earn during Sale-a-Bration!  Sale-a-Bration runs January 3 – March 31st, 2018.  For every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you choose a FREE Sale-a-Bration product!  Plus, new this year:  Earn even bigger rewards when you spend $100 (before tax & shipping).

Today I’ll be showing off one of the items you can earn with $100 purchase- Celebrate You Thinlits Dies!  I’ve paired it with another FREE item, Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (free with $50 order).

Isn’t that a fun card?!!  And those thinlits cut out so easily!!  I love that balloon on the top!  That’s some beautiful paper that you can find in the new Occasions Catalog called Picture Perfect Party DSP.

A little different look for this card.  Which one do you like best?

I’ll be having a New Catalog and Sale-a-Bration Kick Off Party on Sunday, January 14th from noon to 3pm and I hope you can attend!  We’ll make 4 Make & Takes and there will be lots of displays & demonstrations, prize patrol, food, and you’ll take home Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalogs.  Cost is just $15.  Bring a friend who hasn’t stamped with me in 6 months and you’ll both get to make a fabulous project!  Please RSVP!

Thank you for joining us today!  And be sure & continue on the hop.  We’d love to hear a few comments!  Are you excited about Sale-a-Bration?!!  Me too!!

SSINKCC#43 Color Challenge

I love a challenge!  And anytime I use Perfect Plum it’s challenging for me!!  That color just sits there waiting to be noticed by me.  In face, my upline, Anne Matasci and I started a Purple Plum Color Challenge with each other on Pinterest that we haven’t bothered with for over a year.  So I’m reviving the challenge, Anne!!

That brings me to today’s Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspiration Color Challenge SSINKCC#43.

I just dove right in & hated the colors when I started, but now I think it really works!!

In fact, I really like it a lot!!  Where’s the plum?  It’s in the sentiment and the dark color on the roses.

I was in a hurry this morning and decided to CASE one of my own cards.

Remember this gorgeous DSP and Everything Eleanor?!!

Here are the measurements so that you can CASE it, too!

  • Stamps:  Picture Perfect
  • Ink:  Melon Mambo & Perfect Plum
  • Paper:  Whisper White Card Base (5 1/2 X 11, scored at 4 1/4 and 4 1/2 X 1 3/4), Tip Top Taupe (5 1/4 X 4, 2015 – 2017 In Color DSP Stack (4 1/4 X 1 3/4), Melon Mambo (4 1/4 X 2)

Be sure and check out what other great ideas the SSINK Team comes up with for combining these colors!  And join us by adding your card in the color challenge SSINKCS#43!

Home Decor Project- Seascape Framed Art

I’m very excited to announce an upcoming class where we’ll be making a Seascape Framed Art piece!  I love the art I’ve placed around my home using stamping mixed with photos, but haven’t found the time to do anything more for awhile.  Then I saw this gorgeous framed art from StampingwithLisa.com and I’ve squeezed it into my schedule!  Hope you can squeeze the time in to come to class!!

 

I’ll have 2 classes to choose from:

  •  Saturday, February 18 at 2 pm or
  • Monday, February 20 (President’s Day) at 10 am

Cost is $20 or FREE with your $40 order placed that day and includes everything except the frame.  I’ll have a couple of frames available for purchase for $15.

Class size is limited so RSVP soon to reserve your spot!

I’ll have a couple of different color combos to choose from.  Bring your own tiny(1″) seashell if you have a special one!  I brought this shell back from my daughter’s wedding last October that was in Charleston, SC.  I’m sure Jenny & her husband will love having this memento of their special day!
