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!

Stampin' Up! Ultimate Blog Hop in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

 I'm super excited to be a part of this fun blog hop.... When I heard of this fun hop from Janet Wakeland....I had to jump at the chance to be a part of this.  
 Breast Cancer Awareness is a very important cause...just just for the month of October for it should be brought to our attention every day....but we especially have made October the month to remind us of how important it is to be tested.....
On a personal note, two years back I wasn't feeling well.  I went for the blood work, x-rays and all the normal types of testing....I was then sent for an abdominal ultrasound and there was something that showed up....so to further understand what it was, I was then sent for more x-rays and a CAT scan...well....it was made quite clear that I had a lemon-sized mass in my left kidney....so after discussing it at length with my urologist the decision was made to remove the kidney. We didn't know at the time what it was, malignant, non malignant, had to spread, was it encapsulat…

Out With The Old...In With the New Blog Hop

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW BLOG HOP
Thanks for stopping by today....I would like to welcome to our Blog Hop....we are saying good-bye to the old...and welcoming in the new!  Are you ready?
Let's put on our hopping shoes and go!
So...let's take a look....can you see what's old and what's new?

First off...the bear was used from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set Item # 142043 along with the coordinating punch Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Item # 140396. 

The new is the Lift Me Up Bundle Item # 144711 (w) and 144712 (c).  The stamp set is Lift Me Up and the Thinlits are Up & Away...the clouds were also done using the Thinlits Dies. 

I also used our Cardstock Vellum and cut out the coordinating pieces for the back of the balloon...along with the basket thinlit. 

I love this little bear....he's not just for babies and Christmas...I can see so many other things done using him.
Thanks for stopping by....time to hop on over to the next blog!

This is a SUper easy home decor' project to create.... All you need is: A 12 x 12 frame of your choice (I got mine at a big box store with a 50% off coupon) Basic Black 12 x 12 cardstock (#124267) Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (#141642) I was going to be a downloadable file to create this frame, but it's so simple...so I just posted the information here....

You can even change the inside picture for all the different seasons by using any of our DSP (which, by the way, they are on sale for this month) If you do not have a demonstrator, come on over …
