Ok, so I have A LOT to catch up on… so, big breath in, and get ready to dive in to some project ideas for you!

First up, this fun birthday card idea using the Sale-a-Bration stamp set – Big Day!

Tips for making this card:

  • This was my first time using the new Chalk inks… and with it my first time playing with the new Chalkboard paper!  This paper has the COOLEST texture and is so fun to play with.  You want to stamp on the SMOOTH side with the chalk inks so that the ink will sit on the surface and give you that pretty chalkboard look.  (this is the Coral Rose color)
  • Add your own extra touches with the Chalk Pen!  The white dots under the cake and the white lines along the side of the chalkboard paper are made with the Chalk Pen.  As you can see, it is really vibrant on the Chalkboard paper, but more “chalky” when drawing on regular cardstock.
  • Make a fun embellishment piece by using the new Ornate Tag Topper punch… only don’t just stick to one side, do both!  I had a 2” strip of Whisper White cardstock that I punched both ends.  Then run some ribbon through the holes (and tie together on the inside of the card) to hold it in place.
  • Jazz up your Ornate tag by grabbing a Stampin’ Write marker and drawing a border about 1/16” in from the edge of the tag.  Really helps you see the design, huh?
  • And don’t hesitate to stamp your image and then stamp & color a second version to pop-up on top!  It keeps it interesting to look at when viewed at different angles, but you only have to color one. Smile

Lots of fun… and if you need another idea, here is a reminder of one of the official cards shared in the Sale-a-Bration catalog.  I love the colors and the little pop of dimension with the “Celebrate”

Now, if you are like me and LOVE the black, white, and yellow combination, I really hope you are a Paper Pumpkin subscriber because check out March’s kit and a fun alternate idea.

You have THROUGH TODAY (3/31/2015) to pick up a 3-month Prepaid subscription to the super fun kits by mail each month and not only SAVE $$ but also get a free Sale-a-Bration item to boot!  I know, awesome right?  I already picked up mine!

We never know what we are going to get until it ships out to us around the 15th of the month, but over the last year they have been working hard to improve the projects and how much you get in your box and so they have turned out to be really fun projects and you end up with lots of supplies.  You know you will always get:

  • an exclusive stamp set
  • precut papers and supplies to make usually 6-9 copies of the project, though this varies by month and the project
  • all the accessories you need for the project and sometimes variations
  • envelopes (if they are cards)
  • instructions with video walkthroughs online
  • ink spots

Basically all you need is scissors and adhesive!  (See, now you get why I said they make great gifts!)

Here is what we got for March:
