You may have noticed that earlier this week, was the start of Stampin’ Up’s big spring promotion – Sale-a-Bration. It is a really fun promotion that basically gets you free stuff no matter what you do! You can
- pick free goodies from the special Sale-a-Bration catalog when you order $50 or more,
- get extra hostess dollars when you host a private or online event,
- or even get an extra $25 in product in your starter kit if you want to take advantage of the perks of being a demonstrator.
So yeah, basically everyone wins!
Anyway, I always like to throw a party when a new catalog comes out and at the beginning of Sale-a-bration. It is a great excuse to hang out with friends, share samples I go at recent events, let everyone see and try out a TON of new products from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs, and STAMP! (what kind of party would it be if there was no stamping? )
Wanna see what we made? Here you go!
This was the first card we made and inspired loosely by a card I saw from a German demonstrator named Ines.
I’ll admit, when I saw Petal Parade in the Sale-a-bration catalog it looked a little boring to me, but let me just say I have been having a blast playing with it and think it may be my favorite stamp set from SAB! Plus, got to add in that little detail with the cork and the twine from the Sweet Sorbet Accessories bundle.

I also really wanted to use the Banner Blast stamp set and Banner punch and so we made this card:
This card is a more direct CASE from my friend and look-alike, Julie Davison. I made a few adjustments like changing up the sentiment, making it a standard size card, and using the Decorative Dots embossing folder for the starfruit trim.
So cute, huh?!
