I have two different Sale-A-Bration freebies to share with you today!  I used both on a card that has been very well liked by those who have made it!

I think it is easy for some to overlook both of these freebies, simply because they each require a $100 purchase and it’s easy to pay more attention to the $50 freebies.  Check these out:Continue reading

On the Ocean Handmade Card

On the Ocean Handmade Card

To be honest, I’m not quite sure why the One the Ocean stamp set caught my eye, but it did.  May it was the water stamp, I do like the swirls in that particular stamp!  Maybe it was the water and boat dies that coordinate with the set.  Who knows!

In any case, I did buy the bundle and I have had opportunity to create one card with it so far which I thought I would share it with you.  I created this card as an example of a new fancy fold I was sharing with my Technique Club earlier in the month.

Nested Friends Thank You

Nested Friends Thank You

For some reason the bird stamp sets always seem to catch my attention.  I’m not sure why.  I’m not a bird watcher and I can’t name birds other than a few basic kinds, but I do seem to like decorating with them and making cards with them.

All that to say, of course the Nested Friends stamp set caught my attention in the mini catalog.  I particularly like the fact that there are dies to cut out a nice nest!

Here is a card we made with the Nested Friends stamp set in the Fancy Folds Class recently.Continue reading

Hoot Hoot You’re so Cute!

Hoot Hoot You’re so Cute!

Have you noticed the Adorable Owls which are free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration?  Those little guys are pretty cute, aren’t they?  I need to spend some more time with them.  Things like taxes have been taking up some of my creative time lately.  Blah!

I did make this one card which is quite simple and easy to make.Continue reading

Nesting Boxes Storage & Decor

Nesting Boxes Storage & Decor

For the Valentine’s Gift class I always try to come up with something that looks nice for the guys, but is also usable.  I figure guys will get more excitement out of the gift if it’s something they can actually use.

Now, my example may not look very “manly”, but that’s because I made it for me, not my husband (is that bad??)  The good news is that when you come to class you can choose whatever Designer Series Paper you want to use, and nobody is going to care if you’re making it for your Valentine or someone else!

See what you think of this project.

Greatest Journey Suite from Stampin’ Up!

Greatest Journey Suite from Stampin’ Up!

The Greatest Journey stamp set is a fun one, but when you add in the coordinating dies it gets so much better!  The stamp set didn’t particularly strike my fancy at first until I saw the dies.  The dies add so many more options to this set!

You can check out the entire Greatest Journey Suite on pages 58-59 of the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog.  I’ve just posted a picture of the stamp set and dies below for you.
