Favorite Sale-a-Bration Projects

With only a couple days left of Sale-a-Bration, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite projects created with SAB products.

This beautiful card featuring the Reverse Words stamp set and the sold out glimmer paper.

This layout created using the Inside the Lines dsp.

The Hey, Chick stamp set was definitely a favorite for a lot of people - this little egg makes me smile!

I also loved this set because of the introduction of our watercolor pencils. It's a great one to colour!

This birthday card was the very first card I created using the Inside the Lines dsp and watercolor pencils.

And another one...

And of course the many cards made with the Make a Medallion stamp set.

So many great products to choose for free! But only until March 31st.

The Perfect Mix

Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend:) Today I thought I'd share with you the four cards we made at the Watercolour Class that we held the afternoon of our Stamp Cafe. All these cards were created by my upline Winona Semler.

The first two cards use the stamp set Perfect Mix. This stamp set and our new Watercolor Pencils really do create the 'perfect mix'. Learning to watercolor can be a little intimidating, starting with smaller images can give you the confidence to move on to larger images.

The next two cards use the So Very Much stamp set which is available for free during SAB (only until March 31st). The watercoloring that she showed us how to do on the jar is amazing. It looks so good in person!

On this last card, she created a rainbow-type effect and used it as the background to the greeting. I love it! I've listed the main supplies (stamp sets and dies) in the supply list below. If you have any specific questions about any of the projects, just let me know.

REMINDER: Only 5 days left to take advantage of Sale-a-Bration a free product with every $60 purchase.  Plus if you use hostess code 4YJGNA36, I'll send you these two cute card kits!

Easel Treat Box Video and Samples

At our Stamp Cafe event last weekend, I demonstrated how to make these adorable easel treat boxes. It's amazing all that you can do with this one idea. I got the idea for the easel treat box from Janet Wakeland and then just ran with it. So many possibilities.

This first one holds 4 cards and uses the Lift Me Up bundle and the Cupcakes and Carousels dsp and embellishment kit - all from the 2017 Occasions Catalogue. Note: I share the cards in the video.

This messy haired chicken is bound to make anyone who isn't feeling well, smile! It was the perfect image to use on the front of a little get well package. I included a cup of soup, a tissue pkg and some halls in this easel treat box. It uses our kraft cardstock, the Affectionately Yours specialty paper and the Hey, Chick SAB stamp set (only available until Mar. 31st).

I love how this one turned out. This is going to be part of my husbands father's day gift. It's the perfect little desk organizer which includes some 4x6 sticky notes and his favorite pen. I'll tuck in a Tim Horton's gift card and he'll be set. To decorate this easel treat box, I used the Pun Intended hostess set and the urban underground dsp.

And this last one is my favourite! This is for my daughter for Easter (my son's is in the works). I filled it with a bunch of planner goodies and some matching pens. The bunny was created using the following pieces:
  • Head - layering hearts framelits
  • Ears - the leaves from the flower fair framelits
  • Muzzle - 1" circle punch
  • Eyes, nose and mouth - 1/2" circle punch
I used a product called Action Wobble Springs to make the bunny's head wobble. You can find them on Amazon and a few other places.
Be sure to watch the video to find out more information.

Have a creative day!

Demo Only Pre-order Party

As we near the end of the current annual catalogue, as demonstrators our thoughts shift to what will carry over and what new products will be released in the next catalogue. It's an exciting time! Even more exciting because those of us who are fortunate enough to have registered to attend On Stage in Calgary on April 8th will get first peek at the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue. 

However, with a sold out event and/or life circumstances, not all demonstrators are able to attend. If you are a demonstrator in the Edmonton, Sherwood Park or surrounding areas, I would love to bring the excitement of the On Stage local event back to share with you! 

As On Stage attendees, we get a first peek at the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue and the opportunity to order a selection of products before anyone else. We all know seeing product in print is not the same as seeing it in person. So I’ve decided to host a demo-only party in my home studio where you will have a chance to touch and feel products from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue before the pre-order goes live on May 2nd

Not only will you be able to see the products but you’ll also CREATE 20 SAMPLES to use at your own annual catalogue launches, for display or for your own use! Imagine having 20 samples created using BRAND NEW product before you can even order the product?!

Here are the details:

Demo Only Pre-order Party
Friday April 28th
10am - 3pm OR 5pm - 10pm
Fee is $50
Included in your $50 fee:

  • All consumable supplies to create 20 samples using brand new products(except adhesive) 
  • Light lunch or dinner depending on which class you are attending
  • Displays with additional inspiration using all the pre-order products
  • Door prizes
  • A FUN afternoon of stamping and creating with other demonstrators
  • Door prizes

Payment and registration is due by April 10th!
Preferred payment method - etransfer, cash, Visa or MCRD

Register Today - space is limited!

Note: This event is open to active demonstrators only. 

If you'd like to participate in the event, there's still time to take advantage of the best deal in the catalogue - the starter kit! For just $135 (no shipping and no GST) you can choose $165 worth of product (from the annual or occasions catalogue) plus get TWO free stamp sets of your choice and a free Paper Pumpkin kit!

Have a creative day!

Stamp Cafe Recap

We had such a great time on Saturday at the Sale-a-Bration Stamp Cafe. I'm pretty sure everyone left inspired after seeing all the displays, demo's and taking the classes that were offered. I thought I would share a few photos today.

Everyone who attends receives a gift for attending. This time it was the Urban Underground Embellishments. And of course we have to make them pretty!

We had lots of great displays. I was surprised at just how much we had considering it was just my upline and I putting on the event.

We did borrow this beauty from Lorna to have on display. She created it using the Succulent Framelits Dies. Don't they look real? The sponging adds so much to the cardstock, it's amazing.

We also had a couple home decor items to raffle off. Here's a closer look at the Hello Spring decor piece that I made.

I'm seriously considering a version of this as the make & take at my May Creative Retreat. I love how it turned out and want to make another one to keep.

And then of course we have the door prizes. This one was the Sale-a-Bration Metallic Ribbon Combo.

Some gold dazzling details.

The urban underground washi tape and we also gave away blender pens, which I didn't get a photo of.

I will share the class projects with you next week and my demonstration (and samples) on Friday. I'm working on filming a video for you.

If you want to mark your calendars for the next Stamp Cafe, it is tentatively set for World Card Making Day - October 7th, 2017. We'd love to have you join us.

Have a creative day!

Simple One Layer Card

Simple one layer cards can be so pretty. Handmade cards don't always need to be over-the-top to be beautiful. Today's card is the perfect example of a simple one layer card.

It uses the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Reverse Words which really is the star of the card. The flowers are just the little accents that make it pretty, like the accessories you wear to dress up a simple outfit. These little flowers are from the Jar of Love stamp set. This card could be used for so many different occasions - birthday, retirement, congratulations, promotion, engagement, etc.  And it's definitely a card that could easily be mass produced!!

Have a creative day!
