Pinkies Blog Hop – Saleabration

blog hop logo

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using new Stampin’ Up!® products that you can earn free during Sale-a-Bration. Simply use the buttons at the end of of each post to keep hopping!

There are so many gorgeous products in this years Sale-a-Bration Catalogue, that you will definitely want to place an order and get those FREEBIES! lol I love them all and again it was hard choosing just one to showcase for you. So I thought I would show you the gorgeous Vellum Stack, Botanical Gardens and the Botanicals For You stamp set.  These two coordinate beautifully and in fact you will find they coordinate well with other stamps and papers in our new spring/summer catalogue.

Here is the first project I have made for you.

botanical vellum treat bag

As you can see I have done a beautiful gift bag in Vellum. First of all I stamped the words ‘Just for You, from Botanicals For You stamp set, using Rose Red Ink. Then using a Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the words exactly over the top, I heat embossed the words over the top with Clear Embossing Powder. Using clear embossing powder is a great way to get all the colours you wish for. Isn’t it gorgeous! To make it stand out even more I have sponged on the back of the vellum using Rose Red ink and a sponge dauber. I also coloured the larger flowers on the back with crushed curry marker pen.

Botanicals card

Next I made a lovely coordinating card to go with it.  Again I have used some of the same Vellum, and stuck it to some Rose Red Cardstock, using Glue dots in the corners.  To hide the glue dots, I have added large pearls over the top. I stamped flowers from the Botanicals For You stamp set onto Shimmery White CS, using Rose Red, Perfect plum and crushed curry Inks. I stuck the flowers on the vellum using glue dots and added tiny pearls to each of them. Finally I stamped ‘…on your special day’ from the same stamp set on shimmery white cs with crushed curry ink, flagged one end using paper snips and stuck it to the card with dimensionals.  Can you see I added the single crushed curry flower to the banner which I think makes it ‘special’!

Give these together to someone special and they will be bowled over!

Well I hope you have enjoyed looking at my projects and I hope you will pop back soon to see how I have coordinated these Sale-a-bration Freebies with other products from the spring/summer catalogue.

So now it’s time to hop on over to Camille’s blog to see what amazing projects she has made with some new products.

Money Wallets & Product-based Classes

Hi everyone,

I want to talk to you today about my Product-based Classes and the Money Wallets I taught in a 1-2-1 I had today. I am busy trying to get my website with all the information I can as quickly as I can.  Thank you for you patience, it is still a work in progress, but hopefully you have enjoyed what you have seen so far. If you go to my Product-based Classes Page (under Classes) you will see the Timetable for the Brand New Classes starting in July. You will also see the projects you will be making in the July classes using the Stamp Set you will receive at the Class to take home with you. The Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set we will be using is included in the Class price, which means you can produce more gorgeous cards with your own stamp set when you get home all inspired after the class.

The following month, August will be using Build a Birthday Stamp Set! As it is one of the Brand New Stamp Sets, I have not yet bought mine so have not made the projects we will be making in the classes but you can see samples of projects from the Brand New Catalogue – out today!

So please go check out the Product-based Classes page and book those places soon as spaces are limited!

I had a lovely 1-2-1 class this morning with a lovely lady at her home.  She wanted to make a couple of Money Wallets so I made one as a sample using the Brand New In-Color Cardstock, marker pens, along with the absolutely gorgeous Bohemium DSP!  I also used one of my favourite Stamp sets from Last Year ‘In This Together’, although she chose to put something else on.

So here is the wallet I made (I can’t show you hers, lol but hope they like them).
