Simply Wonderful - Sale-a-bration starts tomorrow

Sale-a-bration has come around again for 2015 and this year it's a CRACKER!

It kicks off tomorrow, along with a brand new and entirely delicious Occasions Catalogue and I'm popping in today to share some cards using one of the new Sale-a-bration stamp sets, some new Designer Series Paper and a fabulous new set of Thinlits!

This year's Sale-a-bration is (once again!) more amazing than ever, with a plethora of freebies to choose from with your $90 order. The stamp set that I used for today's cards is a set called Simply Wonderful, comprising five different sentiment stamps and a sweet little flower image...

Here's the first one...

I made use of a variety of sets of Blendabilities to colour in the 'Thanks' part of the stamp, which is the main feature of the card, set off with a bit of the new Best Year Ever Sale-a-bration DSP plus a cute punched flower and a sweet bow.

This one uses two more of the stamp greetings, introduces the sweet flower, coloured with markers, plus another of the DSP designs.  I can already tell that this is going to be one of me favourite DSPs.  The COLOURS..!

The next card is one that I was challenged to make during my international Skype crafting session with my dear friend and fellow demo Julie Kettlewell. We had to use the same stamp set and DSP, and make a thank you card with a matching little bag.

Here's my card...

And the two of them together...!

The little bag is made with an amazingly clever new product - a Thinlit die that makes little paper bags out of whatever paper you like! It is the absolute sweetest, PLUS comes with an array of other Thinlits in the pack, including the 'enjoy' wording that you can see pegged onto the bag...

I'm just busting to put those Thinlits through their paces, I can envisage a whole lot of custom packaging happening with those babies!

Check back tomorrow to see the new catalogues in living colour, along with a post showing some projects with another of the new FREE stamp sets on offer...
