Kre8tors Blog Hop - Bye Bye Sale-A-Bration

Hi and welcome back, joining myself and fellow Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators, sharing our creativity globally through our Kre8tors Blog Hop group.   You join me here in Norfolk, UK and looking forward to sharing todays projects with you.  Sadly at the end of this month we wave goodbye to earning FREE products in our annual Sale-A-Bration promotion for another year.

I've chosen to share with you projects using the FREE  Painted Seasons Stamp set & Designer Series Paper bundle, a double item from the 2nd Sale-A-Bration release, available FREE with a £90 order from any of the current catalogues. 

The Four Seasons Framelits Dies were some of the Sale-A-Bration co-ordination products released on 1st March for one month only to coordinate with this bundle.

Here is the card I created for my Business Builders Team meeting last weekend. I provided all the products and, as a little creative 'homework', everyone had pre-designed one card using a different Designer Series Paper from the bundle.

These Designer Series Papers are now available as a 'stand-alone' product from Sale-A-Bration rewards with a £45 order. If you would like to order and choose these papers, I would recommend ordering quickly before they run out as SAB products are strictly 'while stocks last'.
Card base is Poppy Parade, with a mat layer of Painted Season Designer Series Paper with strips of Pumpkin Pie, Mango Medley and Whisper White card stock.
With a little bit of Dazzling Diamonds applied to the fir cones for 'frost', this would make a perfect Autumn Birthday card.

Four Seasons Framelits Dies #150074

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set from the Spring/Summer catalogue.

Here are the different Designer Series Papers together with the co-ordinating card stock colours.

Here is the video from Stampin' Up! showing this bundle of products.

This set has been lovely to work with and will be sharing other projects this week so would love you to pop back and see additional projects...…. yes, even starting some Christmas designs !  

I hope you have enjoyed my contribution today.  Enjoy the rest of your 'hop' around the globe today by clicking the arrow to visit Jo and see the wonderful creations she has to share with you.  We do really appreciate reading your lovely comments on our posts.

Roll Call List
We have seen a fabulous selection of products from Stampin' Up! this year, which has sadly caused some frustrations too.  Many items sold out extremely quickly, despite Stampin' Up! ordering addition supplies and in many cases, over four times the number of items previously!  

With  the 3rd release products from the Annual catalogue added to the collection, the most up-to-date reference for availability, is via my 24/7 Stampin' Up! Online shop.

If you are in the UK and do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I would love to help you get started ordering your favourite supplies.  Sale-A-Bration is the best time of the year as there are FREE products for everyone, Customers, Hostesses and by joining my Team, to buy your own craft supplies at a discount or as a small business !  Give me a call and we can catch up, or visit my 24/7 online shop following the link below. 

Would you like to receive a whole bundle of tutorials FREE every month ?  I am a member of the I.D.E.A.S. group of Demonstrators, all sharing a fabulous tutorial each month and can be FREE to you in one of these 3 ways :-

* Place a minimum £30 order and I will send it to you as a Thank You.
