Sunday afternoon was going to be the very first time our new Spring 2012 Hostess Club met together to stamp. I was so excited to see my "stamp ladies" again. I even had our projects planned and prepped a week in advance. Then one-by-one, I received word that some of my stampers wouldn't be able to come. No biggie, I'll just stamp their cards for them. Then on Saturday, I woke up with the worst cold I've had in quite awhile. Bummer!! I had to cancel our club meeting. And the even bigger bummer is I can not reschedule for next week either!! I guess I'll be making everyone's projects and tucking them into their order bags. Here is one of the cards we were going to make. It is a CASE of a card I saw on Stampin' Connection (an online site for SU! demos) by Misty Lee Berry. The only thing I changed was the sentiment.
OVER ALL #113790
Stamps: Oval All
Paper: Naturals White, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Everyday Enchantment, Very Vanilla

Isn't this card so pretty? Wish I could take credit for it, but I'm happy to CASE other talented stampers out there. :) I sponged a little bit of Lucky Limeade ink on the raised parts of the Tulip Frame, to highlight them. And isn't that Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper just gorgeous?!!! I love the colors in it. And today is the day you can finally get it because today is the day for Sale-A-Bration!!! My most favorite time of the year!! For every $50 you spend on your favorite Stampin' Up! products, you choose an item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE (this includes online orders)!!! And there are so many fabulous Sale-A-Bration items it is hard to pick one! Good thing this promotion lasts through March 31!! ;)
And in other fun stamping news... I can't wait for Friday, because that is the first day of the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop!! Stampin' Addicts is my favorite Stampin' Up! only online hangout. They have fun forums, a great gallery, and amazing stampers who share their talent, and inspiration. And it's all Stampin' Up!, all the time!! Such a happy place to hang out! And on Friday, many of those very talented stampers will be sharing their creativity using the products in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. All the Sale-A-Bration items will be highlighted at least once on the tour. I will be showcasing the Striped Textured Impressions Embossing Folder on page 16 of the SAB catalog. It's also on page 218 of the "big" catalog, but wouldn't it be more fun to get it for FREE?!

I post links to my blog there and also other news and information I receive from Stampin' Up! And if you need more stamping inspiration in your day (don't we all!), then come "follow" me on Pinterest (link also on my sidebar). I started boards that are dedicated to Stampin' Up's! various Big Shot dies. I have a board for the Petal Cone die, and another board for the Fancy Favor box, and so on and so on!! I've been trying to add a new Big Shot board everyday. These "pin boards" have inspiration from various talented stampers, not just me, so there is lots of variety.
I am really excited for February to get here. That's when I get to stamp with my club ladies again, and have a birthday card class, and finally put in a Stampin' Up! order!! It's been too long since I've gotten anything new and I just love everything in the new Occasions Mini Catalog. Haven't seen it yet? Check out the link on Stampin' Up! website: Krystal's Cards.
Thanks for stopping by!
