Sale-A-Bration: Product of the Week - Irresistibly Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper

This paper is so much more than meets the eye!

The glossy designs look great alone or they will "resist" ink, making them really fun for techniques.  Try it with spritzers, brayers, sponges and more.  You'll find that this paper can be used with any style, from bold and bright to elegant and subtle.  Try a technique class with your friends where everyone can play with this paper and fall in love with it like we have!  With unlimited crafty possibilities, this paper is simply a must-have for everyone's paper stash.

Sale-A-Bration: A Happy Thing, Best Year Ever DSP & Accessory Pack

Today makes the start of the Australia Day long weekend and I thought I would share a card that I made at my last card class which uses Sale-A-Bration FREE products - the A Happy Thing stamp set which comes in Wood or Clear, Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper and Best Year Ever Accessory Pack.

My card is a case from the brochure with a few changes in colour combination.  Below I am sharing the you tube video of the masking technique which takes the single lemon into a bunch of lemons.

Stamp Set: A Happy Thing
Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper
Ink: Memento, Wild Wasabi, Daffodil Delight & Wild Wasabi Blendabilities
Accessories: Spiral Border Punch, Crushed Curry Best Year Ever Ribbon

Sale-A-Bration: Product of the Week - Lotus Blossom

The gorgeous Lotus Blossom Stamp Set makes anyone feel like an artist in three quick steps.  It creates a beautiful flower that looks painted, but it is amazingly easy.  The individual stamps have a tab at the top to help you align them, and the tabs are numbered so you will know which part of the flower to stamp first, second and third.  Try playing around using one ink pad with the stamping off technique, or multiple different ink pads to create many different looks.

Rain in the Adelaide Hills ... Weekly Deals

I am celebrating some rain here in the Adelaide Hills as the last 6 days the CFS have been battling a huge bushfire, which effected so many people in the hills with 36 homes burnt.  I evacuated on Saturday, but luckly the fire did not reach my town but it was still way too close.

Again it's Wednesday so I am sharing the Weekly Deals and there are lots of huge savings on the Designer Series Paper Stacks ($37.95 reduced to $28.46) and the very versatile Envelope Punch Board ($31.95 reduced to $23.96).
