Sale-a-Bration and the new Mini Catalogue
Happy New Year, my crafty friends! January is always a big month with the start of Sale-a-Bration and the release of a new Mini Catalogue. If you live in Australia, would like me to be your Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and have yet to receive a catalogue, contact me with your details and I will have one winging its way to your address asap.
During Sale-a-Bration Stampin’ Up! also has an amazing Starter Kit Offer that actually includes an exclusive Boho Blue Mini Cut and Emboss Machine. So stay tuned for all the details or contact me. This offer starts on 5 January 2023 and is only available during Sale-a-Bration (5 January-February 2023). I have been a demonstrator for over 10 years and this year’s special Sale-a-Bration Starter Kit Offer is the best ever in my opinion. All the details are included in the Sale-a-Bration Brochure and on my Facebook Page in the next couple of days.
Valentine’s Day Card featuring Alphabet A La Mode Dies by Stampin’ Up!
I actually don’t have any Valentine’s Day Bundles – I don’t send out enough cards celebrating Valentine’s Day to make it worthwhile. So every year I look at repurposing what I already have to create my Valentine’s Day card. Stampin’ Up! stamp sets do have some nice sentiments that could be used for this purpose but when I searched, none popped out.
But I couldn’t wait to use the brand new Alphabet A La Mode Dies to be released Thursday 5 January 2023 as part of the new Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalogue (January -April). They are perfect for cardmaking as they are tall and fine. And they will work equally well for scrapbooking.
Valentine’s Day Card Details:
Poppy Parade Card Base: 8-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (21cm x 14 cm).
Basic White Front Layer: 3-5/8″ x 5 ” (9.2cm 12.7cm).
Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper (I used plain Calypso Coral background for this card) 3-1/2″ x 4-7/8″ (8.9cm x 12.4cm); Using White Shimmer Embossing Paste, mixed with a drop of Poppy Parade reinker, and the spotted mask from the Basic Pattern Decorative Masks (On Sale during the Last Chance Sale), create your background. Allow to dry (10 minutes).
Basic White C/S 6″ x 3″; adhere 6″ x 3″ Adhesive Sheet to the back of your Basic White C/S; Die-cut your Alpha letters or numbers.
