Ok, it is officially the next to last day for Sale-a-bration. So, as promised, I’m sharing my last few projects using my Sale-a-bration freebies. I realized that the Sale-a-bration flyer doesn’t do the best job giving you a feel for the different stamps and papers so hopefully seeing them in person gives you some ideas for what you like and how to use what you have!
First up, a sweet scrapbook page that took me about 20 minutes to complete!
Seriously – only about 20 minutes, if that! And that includes the journalling.
Sorry the photo isn’t the best… I’m still trying to figure out the best way to photograph 12×12 layouts (if you have any tips, PLEASE leave me a comment and let me know what you do!)
Ok, so here is the real reason why this came together so quickly – it is made up of entirely scraps! Aside from the button, and cutting down the Calyspo Coral designer paper for one of the photomats (from a scrap). Everything else on the page is used exactly as is from my scrap pile!
Alright, I did a little sponging… but NO CUTTING!
I guess sometimes saving those scraps and die cuts is a good thing.
This page is for Caitlin’s first (and so far, only) time getting her hair done in a salon. She barely lets me brush her hair and so trying to attempt a braid is a little too ambitious. So I wanted to capture the moment when I had the chance!

And I have a few extra cards to share with you today as well. Just some bonus inspiration!
I love the Vivid Vases stamp set and turns out it kind of works with that crazy pattern from the Sweet Sorbet designer paper (can you believe this pattern come from the same pack as the paper used in the scrapbook page above?)
And then there is this super sweet and simple card I was given by Holly Jones:
This uses the Petal Parade stamp set for the focal flowers and then a simple small circle punchout of Silver Glimmer paper for the centers!
So, hope these gave you some ideas and I’ll be back tomorrow with two more simple ideas to finish out your Sale-a-bration season!
