Half Way Sale-A-Bration Happiness

halfway happiness

Who can believe that we are already half way through February, wow time flies when you are having fun.  And what fun are we having???  Sale-A-Bration!!!

Sale-A-Bration is Stampin’ Up!’s best time of the year.  How does receiving a free product of your choice from nine different stamps and accessories sound?  Well it gets better, because this year Stampin’ Up! is releasing more products, due to be released on 16th February 2016.  This second addition of products will be available until 31st March.

Ten members from our team of Eureka Stampers has come together to do a quick Blog Hop focusing on the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  You may have started on my blog or may have arrived from the mighty talented Rose Packer.  I am always so inspired by Rose’s creations.  Don’t forget to hop your way through all of our blogs (and please leave a message to say you have visited).

Anyway, onto my projects.

My first card is using the Botanicals for You stamp set.  This set co-ordinate with the Botanical Blooms bundle (available in the Occasions Catalogue) and so I have used the Botanical Builders Framelit Dies to create this quick and easy card.


I really like how the Botanical Blooms Framelits Die creates the fancy border.  It adds another dimension to the card.  To make the card pop just a little more, I included a scattering of the It’s My Party Enamel Dots.  Don’t you love the colours!

My second project is made using the Honeycomb Happiness and Perfect Pairings stamp sets.  There is also a bit of a pop on the inside of this card, I can’t wait to show you.

The stamped the ice-cream cone in Early Espresso Ink and then water coloured in Perfect Plum and Tip Top Taupe.  Although it doesn’t show in the photo (unfortunately), I have also traced around the ice-cream and cone in Clear Winks of Stella (my new favourite).  The sentiment, from Perfect Pairings is also stamped in Perfect Plum.


But wait, here the inside of the card……..


The little honeycomb Embellishments are so cute and again, come in a variety of colours – Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Whisper White.

You are now going to move onto the wonderful world of Julie Cocks.  I am super proud of all that Julie has achieved in participating in her first Blog Hop, however here is a quick message for Julie…….beware, it is addictive.
