Sale-a-brating Fabulous Freebies

I am really enjoying the fabulous SAB freebies and wanted to share this card I made this week using the free everyday enchantment papers and the Fresh Vintage stamp set. I choose to stick totally to the gorgeous in colour collection and used the marvellous markers to ink my stamp.

For this project I used:-
Calypso Coral card  smooth card
Everyday Enchantment  designer paper (SAB)
Fresh Vintage Stamp Set (SAB)
Four of the five in colour markers (Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party & Island Indigo)
Sentiment from Create a Cupcake set (p22 of the Spring mini catalogue)
Bird Builder punch
Word Window Punch

I am having such fun with my SAB freebies  and will post more in the next couple of days.

There is still time to get your hands on one or more of the great SAB sets on offer by simply placing an order for £45 (excl p&p) before the end of March. If you would like to know more about the great SAB offers check out the details in my earlier post and if I can help in any way please do get in touch.

Stampin' Away day

Today I enjoyed a rare treat . . . a Stampin' Away day with the team. A whole  creative day filled with paper, ink and bling with lots of laughter and some cakey stuff thrown in for good measure.
It was so good to create in the company of fellow Stampin' Up! enthusiasts doing what we do best . . . Inspire, Create & Share. As is usual at these events swapping is a big part of the day.

 For this day the theme was friendship and I made some handy bookmarks, pairing crumb cake cardstock with the latest in-colours. These were fun to make and I kept one for myself too.

Of course not only is it fun to make things to swap, but its always a delight to receive projects that others have made, often with the same or similar materials. The variation in designs never ceases to amaze me and just goes to demonstrate that with the right materials and a little imagination the possibilities are endless.

Today I got some gorgeous swap items. I will take a picture of them when the light is good and will upload and share them so you can see exactly what I mean.

I always come away from these events feeling energised and today was no exception. My Stampin' Away day was a great experience. If you like the sound of this and would like to come along to a future event please drop me a note
