Sale-a-Brate in March!

Hello everyone,

I wanted to share a couple cards I made using some of the new and awesome FREE products available to you during Sale-a-Bration.  If you know Stampin' Up, you know this is their BEST time of year!  For every $60 you spend, you can pick a free item from the Sale-a-Bration selection.  See the SAB link on the right hand side of my page or contact me for a hard copy of the SAB brochure. 

Here is the first one:
 I made this one with a Soft Suede base and added a piece of the nice patterned paper in Summer Starfruit from the FREE pack of SAB paper 'Sycamore Street'.  You will see that this paper is incredibly versatile - I used it for this very vintage card as well as a more retro card below AND two very modern/contemporary cards as well. 

The nostalgic ferris wheel image is also part of a FREE Sale-a-Bration set called 'Feeling Sentimental'.  The sentiment is also part of that same set. 

I finished it off with a vintage faceted button and some brown baker's twine. 

This birthday card was pretty much the same process - the Sycamore paper makes it so easy to let your DSP take center stage on your cards!  The cycle image is again from 'Feeling Sentimental'.  The Pool Party button is from the set of FREE Sale-a-Bration buttons and ribbon pack.  You get 3 spools of ribbon and 36 buttons in 3 colours!  Fantastic deal!
The birthday sentiment banner is from 'Itty Bitty Banners' stamp set and is one of the free SAB choices that is also featured in the main catalogue. 

Hope you liked this quick glimpse at the SAB offerings this year!  There is much much more in the brochure - you are going to want one!  Contact me to get a copy

Hope you like!
