Alaska Achievers Blog Hop ~ February 2018

Welcome back for another Alaska Achievers Monthly Blog Hop with fellow Demonstrators globally, who have also earned the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive Trip 2018.

I'm getting really excited, with Christmas finished and now March just around the corner, the months seem to be passing by quickly, with less than 5-months until we experience this wonderful 'bucket list' destination.

For today's hop, I am sharing with you a trio of cards I created during a catch up  with some of my team last weekend.  We all brought a shoebox swap to share, using Sale-A-Bration stamp sets. 

I loved the colour combination used by two of my team and was inspired to recreate my design again, using a similar combination of colours. I have to admit my Tempting Turquoise cardstock has not been 'out to play' lately so this was a welcome combination, adding to my favourite Lemon & Lime Twist.

I used the Eclectic Expressions #147335 (W) #147338 (C) stamp set, a newly added item to the FREE products available in the 2nd release Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration collection.  I love the splodges as it reminds me of our sadly retired Gorgeous Grunge set.  A few Basic Pearl Jewels #144219 were randomly added to finish.

My next card was designed and shared by Helen, using the Beautiful Peacock #147239 (P) stamp set, available FREE during our Sale-A-Bration promotion.  I hadn't used this set before but enjoyed creating this card, changing the background and borders.  The set is growing on me now I've had a chance to 'play' and looking forward to using again soon.

My last card today was designed and shared by Jacqui.  Again a very similar colour combination which I had lots of fun creating.  I'm loving the gorgeous Myths & Magic 6"x6" Glimmer Paper #145601, in Iridescent, Light Green and Turquoise, making a lovely sparkly addition to this project.

The Amazing You stamps #147212 (W) #147215 (C) have been stamped in first and second generation, giving two tone effect.  The Celebrate You Thinlits Dies #146840 finish the decoration.  Both of these available FREE with relevant spend during Sale-A-Bration, before 31st March.

Berry Burst is also a firm favourite in my colour palette and these flowers were stamped twice, laying up and adding a little Wink of Stella #141897, not only adding a pink hue but also a lovely twinkle in real life.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today.  There are loads of other wonderful creations to see along our 'hop' today round the globe, so please work through the list below.  Adding comments along the way would be much appreciated.
