…. with new items from the upcoming “Sale-A-Bration“!

My card today is one I created for “Try Stamping on Tuesday“.  Along with the sketch, we could use Polka Dots if we wanted.  For me it was the perfect chance to create a birthday for my niece next week.

It was the perfect chance to use some of the gorgeous stuff from SAB!  I must say I love, love the Embossing Folder AND the DSP.  I don’t think I will get enough of these 2 items.

When I first saw this stamp set in the current “Occasions Catalogue”, I immediately thought of birthdays, not Christmas!  Mind you, I did use it for some of my Christmas Cards, but I can see myself getting a lot of use out of throughout the year for birthday cards.

Merry Christmas….

One of our Technique Classes for November was to use “Washi Tape“.  I will be the first to admit that I was not keen on using this Tape as I have never really been able to get into what all the hype was all about. 

Knowing some of the ladies had played with the Tape previously & comments like “Don’t know what everyone is raving about“, “Nope, not me”, “Don’t know what to do with it other than stick it on a corner”, etc.  You get the idea.  I decided to jump out of my comfort zone & play with some!  Well, what a mistake on my behalf – I am hooked.  I can now understand all the hype!

I think I’ve convinced everyone that it is a great little product & the result can create a very different look!

Since this photo was taken, I’ve added a little bit of bling to the centre of the present & to the bow at the top.

    Merry Christmas Elaina….

    Today’s card is one I was asked to create for my niece – Elaina.  In fact it is her 1st Christmas, so she may not understand what all the hype is all about.

    I wanted to do a simple little card for her but keeping in with the traditional colours of Christmas.  I have loved this gorgeous little set “Wishing You” since I first saw it in the Seasonal Catalogue.  In fact, I had not intended to use it for Christmas, but for kids birthdays during the year.  Boy, was I wrong!  I’ve used it heaps for Christmas & none for birthdays, but that will come in the year.

    I liked this card so much that I created 6 of them to give out to friends for Christmas.

    I’ve also decided to enter it into the current challenge over at LateNightStampers where we have to create a card, etc using 3 layers, 2 embellishments & be able to create it in 15min or less!
