Sale-A-Bration 2014! Finally!

It's that time again: Sale-A-Bration! If you've never shopped with Stampin' Up! during Sale-A-Bration, you've been missing out. Let's take a look at what's offered now through March 31.

During Sale-A-Bration (SAB), you can choose any of the SAB brochure's exclusive products with each $50 purchase.

This year we've made it easier than ever for you to get your free products. The Sale-A-Bration brochure features seven bundles which are each priced around $50--perfect to earn a Sale-A-Bration freebie. The bundles are designed to meet specific needs and interests. Whether you love home d├ęcor, want to get prepped for an upcoming birthday, or just love to have a stash of cards on hand, there is a bundle for that. However, just because there are great bundles, they are still only suggestions. You can pick out any product to get to your $50.

CLICK HERE to view a copy of the Sale-A-Bration brochure, it has all of the free product you get to choose from after placing your $50 order (remember, the first half is suggested $50 bundles, not the free product).

If you have any other questions just let me know! I'm looking forward to seeing what you're all going to choose for your free items. Yay!

I'm back!

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! If you haven't noticed, I've been on a little bit of a crafting/blogging break. I decided to take a winter session course (Linguistics 305 for those of you who care haha) and they're quite intense; a full semester smushed into a 3-week course. Woo! Glad that's over ;) Anyway, I'm back to crafting and blogging so you can expect a more regular schedule now.

I have a card to share with you today that I made for UFC 2013. I'm always amazed at how complex black and white cards can be. I hope you see what I mean, here it is:

So... what do you think? I decided since I was going to do a black and white card that I needed to mix up the prints. I used Designer Series Paper for the 2 background prints and of course, the zebra counts as zebra print, right? ;) I also added some contrast by using a combination of pearls and brads, I'm in love with this combo; it's so different. Here's a close-up of the brads and pearls.

Oh, as you probably noticed, I tried to add some contrast by heat embossing the zebra as well. Overall I'm really happy with how the card turned out. Anyway, you'll definitely be seeing more of my crafty projects soon and on a regular schedule. ;) If you want to purchase any of the products you've seen on this card or any other Stampin' Up! products you can check out my online shop, HERE. Thanks for reading!
