You Made My Day Sale-A-Bration Card & Class - CTC 15

I totally LOVE the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) free products this year.  The very 1st stamp set in the SAB catalogue is the Best Day Ever stamp set.  I have designed a whole class around this stamp set as it is just so fun & fresh.  I was having a play with my goodies & thought I would case the actually catalogue on a card.    My catty cased card is perfect for the current challenge over at  Why not pop over there (once you are finished here of course) and check out all the great ideas & challenge entries.

Here is my Calypso Coral version:

And here is the actual catalogue one.  I changed mine a bit but the idea is basically the same. 

I am having a Sale-a-Bration day on February 15th here at my studio.  This card is part of a whole set of cards you can make on the day.  You even get to make a special box to keep them in.   This set of cards is just one of the 3 projects you make on the day.  For those that can't attend I will be adding this class to my classes for sale page soon.  

Here are the whole set together:

For those of you interested in attending my Sale-A-Bration day here is the flyer - I hope to see you there!

Butterfly Basics Easel Calendar

Things have been a bit quiet around here.  Sunny days, school holidays = not much time to craft.  Stamp club was back this week so it was the perfect opportunity to crack open my new Butterfly Basics stamp set & matching thinlits dies.

I wasn't to sure about these butterflies when I bought them but after a few uses, they are growing on me.

Here is the easel calendar we created:

We used Blackberry Bliss, Naturals Ivory & Mossy Meadow. Quite rich colours for a more vintage look.   We stamped the butterfly on vellum & heat embossed it.  We also made a matching card.

To make the easel part of calendar I cut a piece of A4 card stock in half lengthways.  Folded it in half, then one side in half again.  This became the easel.  I then cut a piece of card stock 10.5cm x 14cm (the size of the front half of a card & attached this to the folded section.  You can see I put tape where you need to adhere the front to the easel section.

Then it was just a matter of decorating the card part.  Once that is done, you need to add an anchor on the base. I used post it notes but you can also use embellishments or card stock. 

Thanks For Looking,

Birthday & Balloon Bash Fun - Yay It's New Catalogue Time

The NEW Occasions catalogue goes live today & I can now show you some of my samples I have been working on.  YAY!   When I first looked through this catalogue I fell in love with all the flowers & butterflies & bright colours.  I had to just stop & ask myself "what do I use the most & what do I need?" or else I would have bought the whole catalogue!   For me I thought, hmm... birthdays & bright fun is what I need more of & honed in on all the birthday goodies. People are always going to need birthday cards!  I love the bright fun colours in the NEW specialty DSP - Birthday Bash, plus it has 2 sheets with gold foil.

The coordinating photopolymer stamp set Balloon Bash is fresh & fun.  I couldn't wait to get my hands on them & have a play.  And have a play I did.  I have designed a whole class around this set.  Over the next few days I will share this set of cards with you.  Those of you in my area can come along to this class & make your own set.  Up top along the header is a tab titled classes.  All the info is there on when & where my classes are held, & how to book in.  For those of you not in my area I have added a a tutorial for all 5 cards in my TUTORIAL section up top.

Here is the first card.  I did warn you it's bright!   See that ribbon - It's FREE! Yes, you can earn it free during Sale-a-bration.  Starting from today all purchases totalling $90 (not including P&H) earns you one free product from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue.
