Remarkable Blog Hop - Sale-A-Bration


Welcome to the Remarkable 
Blog Hop Sale-A-Bration


I'm so excited to be a part of this month's blog hop....the theme for this month is the must have's...the cannot live without....even if they are on back order.....
from the Occasions Spring Catalog and/or the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.

So when I saw this theme, I knew immediately what I had to have the first time I got a glimpse at the Occasions Catalog...I have to say...it was love at first sight....and I had to have them!

Unfortunately attending the On Stage Event in November, 2016, I was hoping I would have won the stamp set....but no worries...it was worth the wait to be able to order from the catalog when demos were able to preorder.....so, what's my pick/s you ask?

Well, they are both posted on the same page in the Occasions Catalog...page 24...

Have you figured it out yet?

It had to be the Beautiful You Stamp Set (item # 143004 W and # 143637 C)
and the Watercolor Pencils Iitem # 141709)

Here's a fun card I came up with using both of my favorites

I'm not sure what the technical type of fold this is..maybe a Dutch fold?


The top flips up and the bottom opens up (like Dutch doors).


I also used one of my favorite papers, Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (item #141642).
This paper stack is found in our annual catalog and while we are astonished by the scenery of this paper, I went to the other side...and decided to use that on the top and do a splash of the scenery paper on the bottom doors.


The card was stamped with our Basic Black Ink and colored with the fabulous Watercolor Pencils using our Aqua Painters (item # 103954). 


I just love how this card turned out...while it looks difficult it really isn't....it's easy to create but makes quite a statement and I love how it can be displayed by the receiver.

Now...onto the next blog on your journey.....enjoy!

Susan I love that set as well. I really like how versatile is and always looks stunning! I like your "dutch fold" (because I don't know what its called either!) what a great way for the receiver to display it!
