A sneak peek!!!!!

I'm sorry that I haven't posted in several days, but I really needed to get my Christmas cards in the mail. I've also been very busy playing with my new toys. What new toys you might ask??? Well check out the card I threw together today. The stamps come from the current catalogue, but all the other details are listed below... If you have been following my blog for a while, or if you have been using Stampin' Up! products for a few years, you will know that Sale-a-bration is coming up. What is Sale-a-bration???? Well when Stampin' Up! discovered that February was their slowest sales month, they introduced a promotion where if you spent a certain amount of money you would earn free stamps. Every year they come up with a mini catalogue full of stampsets that you could earn for free. And now it's one of the most popular months to host a workshop. Well this year the mini catalogue includes not only stamps, but also a very cute pack of DSP and an awesome border punch. AND they've expanded the dates so THIS year Sale-a-bration starts January 5 and runs all the way to the end of March. So for every $65 you spent on product, you will be able to choose a free stampset or DSP or punch from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. Thats a whole 3 months to earn free stuff!
As a demonstrator I am able to order from these catalogues before the general public. Oh yeah, I have also been able to order from the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalogue as well. So in the card above are the absolutely adorable mini flowers from the Sweet Pea Stiched felt. These will be available in the Occasions Mini. That heart patterned DSP is from the Sale-a-bration catalogue so you can earn it for free as well as that adorable border punch. It's called the Scallop Trim Border punch and there's a matching corner punch in the Occasions Mini. OOOOhh I can't wait to post for you some of the projects I have been making for you.

The recipe:
1. Paper: Melon Mambo, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette, Welcome Neighbour DSP
2. Stamps: Sincere Salutations, Teeny Tiny Wishes
3. Ink: Chocolate Chip
4. Punches: Tag corner punch, Scallop Trim Border punch
5. Accessories: Polka Dot Grosgrain in Melon Mambo, Mini Library Clip, Sweet Pea Stictched Felt
