Sale-A-Bration

Sale-A-Bration starts tomorrow! When tomorrow comes (22nd January) you can see all the Sale-A-Bration specials on my Promotions page. For every $100 you spend during the Sale-A-Bration period, you get to choose a FREE product :) One of the things i like about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator is that I get to order new products and play with them before they go on sale. I therefore made an order and earned the Pretty Petites and the Petite Label Punch right away! Then I got to playing with it and made a small birthday card for my son-in-law. I combined my Petite images and punches with some Clockworks images (page 105 in the Idea Book and Catalogue)on the background and on the envelope too. I used Bashful Blue, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip on the card, plus a few sparkly rhinestones and some Old Olive satin ribbon. I decided to spend some time sponging the edges of things. Then I mounted it on copper metallic cardstock. :)
Happy Birthday, son-in-law!

Make Some Rosebuds!

Do you like to make your own paper flowers? I do. I found a way to make folded paper rosebuds and leaves with just a little cardstock and designer series paper. I love how I can tailor my flowers to the size, colours and patterns I want! I thought I would share how i make these with a short video. Let me know if you decide to make these and have any questions about the instructions. Oh, and I used my phone to film this. Hope it is OK:
If you want the supply list or written instructions and a few still pictures, you can find them on this PaperCraftCentral page. Happy flower making!
