Sale-A-Bration Ends Tomorrow!

Boo Hoo!  Where did the last two months go?!?  I like getting free stuff when I place orders for myself and for you!  And I'm going to really miss the Everyday Elegance Designer Series Paper!!  If you follow my blog, you know I love Designer Series Paper (DSP), and this has been one of my favorites!  I've been able to accumulate quite a good stash of it, but the way I use it, it will be gone in no time!  Here is my last card using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Elementary Elegance and of course the Everyday Elegance DSP!



I used Lucky Limeade and Pool Party card stock to compliment the colors in the DSP.



I used Lucky Limeade and Pool Party Stampin' Write Markers to color in the stamp, and then added a few of the smallest Basic Pearl Jewels.  If you'd like to see more Sale-A-Bration ideas so you can have several ideas on how to use your free goodies, just head over to my Sisters in Stamping blog and see what my creative stamping sisters made!

If you haven't taken advantage of Sale-A-Bration yet, or even if you have and you'll like some more free goodies, you can place an order 24/7 from my online web site, or call or email me to help you place an order or sign up as a demonstrator so you can get a discount on your crafting supplies year round!!

Hoppin’ Down the Bunny Trail!

Did you know that Easter is only a little over two weeks away?  I made this cute little Easter card last night and I killed three birds with one stone with this one!  Don't you love it when that happens.  First off, I made an Easter project for my Sisters in Stamping Fabulous Friday post (check tomorrow to see what my creative stamping sisters created), and I used the sketch for the Creating Pretty Cards monthly card challenge, and I made an Easter card for my little Jacie! 



There's a free little Mini Sketch Tutorial over on Craft Project Central if you'd like the instructions on how to make this card.  I used the Everybunny stamp set, the Domestic Goddess Designer Series Paper, and Daffodil Delight and Poppy Parade card stock.



It's hard to tell from the pictures, but I actually stamped the bunny and mushrooms on scrap Whisper White card stock, cut them out and then adhered them to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.



I also used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder to give my card front some cute texture!  If you need help getting ready for Easter, making cards and other cute Easter projects, just let me know!  I'd be glad to help you out!  Thanks for stopping by!  Have a fabulous weekend!

Delightfully Superb Paper (DSP)!

Also known in the Stampin' Up! world as Designer Series Paper (DSP)!  I love Stampin' Up!'s DSP!!  I love using it on my cards and in 3D projects!  I wish I could say that I love using it in my scrapbooking too, but alas, I haven't done any scrapbooking in so long!  But if I did, I would definitely use DSP in my scrapbooking!!



We made this card in my Stamp-A-Stack classes this week. Although the new Paper Doily die was a little work getting all the little pieces popped out, everyone loved this card, and I especially like the way the little birds on the DSP match the birds in the stamped image. 



I used Everyday Enchantment DSP, which is available for free with a qualifying order as part of the Sale-A-Bration promotion that is going on until the end of this month!  I hope that you've earned a free pack of this paper as the designs and colors in this pack are absolutely gorgeous!!!  The stamp set that I used is called Up in the Air and is a Hostess set from the Occasion Mini Catalog! 


To see some other fabulous projects using DSP, head over to my Sister's in Stamping blog to see what my talented stamping sisters created.


Thanks so much for stopping by and if you have any questions on Sale-A-Bration and how you can get some free stampin' goodies, just let me know!  Have a delightfully superb weekend!!
