I am getting back into the swing of crafting because it is a happy place for me and has been for most of my life. Creating things feeds my soul and the friendships I've made with people who also like to craft have been life-giving in so many ways. I know there are hard days ahead but I also know there are great days as well.
The New Year happens to coincide with Stampin'Up!'s biggest promotion of the year, Sale-A-Bration! You'll be hearing alot about this as it lasts through March 31st. Briefly, for every $50 you spend on a purchase, any product, any catalog, you get to choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. The new catalog and brochure are located on the right hand side of the blog and you can click there for easy access. I also have paper copies if you would like one, just contact me.
To start things off, here's a fun card using the Party Pop-Up Thinlits Dies. I will be showing you several ways to use these, but here is one. I used the thinlit directly on the front of my black card and then glued a colorful Designer Series paper from the "It's My Party" stack behind it. I wanted the shape of the thinlit to stand out a little more so I used our white gel marker to make dashes around the word bubble shape. Here's the card:
This would be a very easy card to make multiples of and could be used for birthday, congratulations or any celebratory reason. Be sure to check out the new catalog and SAB brochure and start your wish list today!
Happy New Year,
