Ink and Share Blog Hop

Welcome to our Sale-A-Bration blog hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Phoebe’s stop. My hop entry is below.

I used 3 different Sale-A-Bration products on my greeting card. The Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes allowed me to get to the fun faster since the card base was already cut and scored and had tone on tone printing. The rich razzleberry striped layer is an option in the Sweet Soiree Memories and More Card pack. Last, I used the Beautiful Peacock stamp set for the focal point.

The inside of the card is stamped as well using a sentiment from the Lovely Friends stamp set. Check back tomorrow for full design details and how to video creating the peacock focal point.

Fun Mail for Me

The logo drink mug and 30th Stampin’ Up! anniversary pin were delivered within a day of each other. Both are gifts from Stampin’ Up! The 30th anniversary pin celebrates Stampin’ Up!’s 30 years as a business. I have been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for 15 of the last years’. My anniversary is in August.

My family and I have been with Stampin’ Up! for longer than my 15 years as a demonstrator. We made a few of my previous demonstrators happy with our family orders. I decided to sign up to enjoy the demonstrator discount after we moved into our house with an extra room that needed a hobby to fill it.

The pin is attached to my lanyard along with my 5 and 10 year pin. I am looking forward to adding my 15 year pin in the fall. I first used the drink mug at a crop so it has good paper crafting vibes.

Stampin on my friends, Stamp On!

I was asked what the popular Sale-A-Bration picks are so here is my unofficial poll.

Heartfelt Flowers Blooms creates stunning images in seconds. The flower bunch stamp has built in depth so this look is achieved in one step. Card designed by a fellow SU demonstrator.

Lorie Line in concert

I have been a fan of Lorie Line since seeing her in the early days playing at the Cities department store. I have many of her CD’s but not sure where Threads of Love went. hmmm…it has been missing for several years. I have watched her concert schedule over the years but it was never a good time to attend.

She was going to be somewhat close by so I watched the weather and that open front row seat. When the weather looked clear, I thought when was I going to have the chance to be front row again? So, I took the opportunity to attend. Lorie’s first costume was elegant eggplant velvet so I knew I was in for a great show. I love the color purple!

I added the concert CD to my stash at intermission. I was pleasantly surprised that it was placed in a dark purple organza bag. Such fortunes to be surrounded by purples!

Thanks for a wonderful evening #LorieLine and company!

Oh yes, I did sent her a thank you card. It was this one because I felt the reindeer conveyed all the effort put into preparing and performing this concert. I’ll color coordinate a (purple if that is the concert theme) thank you card for the next concert I attend.

Anything But A Card Blog Hop

I hope you are enjoying our Anything But a Card Blog Hop. I’m hopping with fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia and Quebec, Canada.

Today’s hop features products from Sale-A-Bration 2018 that can be earned with qualifying purchases. I decided I wanted to document my kombucha journey. Notice the documenting is absent. I’ll add the journaling later along with my favorite flavors and my home brewing set up.

Nessalla is right on trend with my favorite flavor, lemongrass ginger. The bottle logo coordinates with our lemon lime twist In Color. When this color was introduced last summer, I knew I would be using it to make a scrapbook layout. The blog hop was a good reason to get the layout designed. The Nessalla bermuda bay sticker is also on trend and coordinates perfectly with the Bubbles and Fizz designer series paper. This DSP can be earned free with purchase during Sale-A-Bration.
