Sale-a-Bration Countdown - 6 days left!!

Woohoo!  It's Friday!  The weekend is here!  Do you have any fun plans this weekend?  My weekend is pretty packed full.  I have a private class tonight, a crop tomorrow, and then Easter with my family on Sunday.  

There are only 6 days left in the Sale-a-Bration promotion!

Today, I am featuring the What I Love stamp set.  This three step stamping set makes it easy to get perfectly detailed flowers each and every time.  I also like the watercolor-ish leaves, and the very scrpit-ish greetings.

Here are my Pinterest Picks for the this stamp set:

Here is a card that we did at one of my classes, using this stamp set:

Sale-a-Bration Countdown - 7 days left!!

Welcome to Thursday!  The weekend is almost here!!

It is a new day in our countdown - do you know what that means?  That's right - only 7 more days of Sale-a-Bration!  

Today I am featuring the Party Pants stamp set.  This is one of the newer Sale-a-Bration items, that was released on February 16th.  It is great for all the birthday celebrating going on, and is designed to coordinate with the Balloon Bouquet Punch from the Occasions Catalog.
This set features a fun solid balloon, a few other images - and best of all....some great greetings!

D's Stamping Team USA #imbringingbirthdaysback

Hello everyone!  I am so honored today to be a guest blogger on D's Stamping Team USA #imbringingbirthdaysback Blog Hop!  Thank you so much to Darla, and her team for having me!!

You are probably coming here from my friend Jen, at The Stamp Diva.  Wasn't her project just great?!  We are real life bffs, and I am so excited that we get to share this stampin' journey together!
You may have guessed from the title - but this month the hop is all about BIRTHDAYS!  A trainer from the Stampin' Up! home office decided in January that she was tired of Facebook ruining birthdays, and she was going to do something about it.  So, she started the #imbringingbirthdaysback movement.  She posted on her Facebook page that she would happily send a birthday card to anyone who wanted one.  They just needed to comment with their birthday, and PM her their address.  I'm sure she had no idea it would take off like it has.  (Big shout out to Shannon West, she's my favorite home office person, and the starter of this great movement!)  Apparently, a lot of people are underwhelmed with the popular trend of only a Facebook mention for birthdays.  As of a couple weeks ago, she had over 1500 names on her list.  (OVER ONE-THOUSAND-FIVE-HUNDRED birthday cards to mail out!!!!!!!!!)  The cool thing is that other people (myself included) loved what she is doing so much, they we are now doing it on our own too!  So, if you would like a birthday card - please, please, please email me your birthday and mailing address.  (email to scrappystampsandink at gmail dot com) I'd love to send you a card!

Here's the card I have to share with you today:

I decided to go with a masculine birthday card for the hop.  It seems there is always a need for more masculine cards.  

I have really loved all of the great Sale-a-Bration items we have had this year, and will be sad to see them retire!  This card features the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper, and the greeting is from the Party Pants stamp set.  What is your favorite Sale-a-Bration item from this year??

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please head on over to Darla's blog for some more amazing birthday inspiration!

You can purchase any of the items I used in my project from your Stampin' Up! demonstrator.  If you do not have a demonstrator, each of the items listed is a link to my Stampin Up! Store.

Sale-a-Bration Coundown - 8 days left!!!

Happy Wednesday!  

We've made it to the middle of the week!! Yay, us!  There are only 8 days left during Sale-a-Bration.  Which item in the catalog (or the additional flyer) was your favorite?  I love all of the items so much, I'm not sure I could pick one favorite.  (But, with this countdown - I get to pick 10! LOL)

Today I'm featuring the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set.  This set is absolutely adorable!  The set was designed to coordinate with our Honeycomb Embellishments, which I love! (OC p 9, $5)  But, most of my favorite cards made, don't even use them.  It is a great set for making a quick and easy card.
Three adorable images, with three little greetings.  Simple, and fun!

Here are my Pinterest Picks for the set:

This is a card we made at one of my classes using this set:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you are enjoying this countdown as much as I am!  
See you tomorrow!

Sale-a-Bration Coundown - 9 days left!

Hello again!  

There are only 9 days left in Sale-a-Bration, can you believe it??? 

Today I am showcasing the Flowering Fields stamp set.  Here's a fun fact about this stamp set - these flowers look unique to us here in the U.S., but that is because they are in fact native to Australia.  I am in love with Australia.  So, when I learned where these flowers came from - I loved them even more!

Here are some of my favorite Pinterest picks that feature this stamp set: 

Here is a card that I made for one of my classes: 

Thanks so much for stopping by, again today!  I hope you are having a great week.  Be sure to get any last minute Sale-a-Bration orders in!  & Please come back tomorrow for another countdown post!
