Let's go to the {blog}hop!

Hi there!

Thanks for stopping by.  Hopefully, you are on your way around our fantastic Sale-a-bration blog hop.  If not, follow the links at the bottom of this post to see some amazing projects from some fantastic demos - all themed around the hotly anticipated Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration event.

Between January 28th and March 31st 2014, every £45 you spend with Stampin Up! will earn you a FREE exclusive product from the Sale-a-bration range.  That's not limited to 1 per customer order, it's 1 for EVERY £45 you spend.  So come back on Tuesday and visit my online store to get yours.

Whilst you are here, pop over to my Stampin Up! website to see my current classes and events.

I have been playing with the gorgeous 'petal parade', a set of 5 stamps which is available in both clear and wood mount options/  I have also been using some of the co-ordinating designer paper called 'sweet sorbet', a lovely combination of fresh spring colours - sahara sand, crisp cantaloupe, pool party, pistachio pudding and black.

I started off with a couple of cards and got my wonderful envelope punch board out for a play.  It's one of the best gadgets I have ever bought.

I then decided to have a go at decorating a candle, this is super easy, all you need is your heat tool, some tissue paper and waxed paper.  Stamp onto the shiny side of the tissue paper, trim and position on your candle.  Wrap tightly with waxed paper and give it a blast of heat until the tissue is soaked with molten wax.  I added a couple of rhinestones to mine for added glamour, but I'm not sure that would work so well if you wanted to burn the candle.

 Next, I made some of my own dsp using whisper white cardstock and my stamps/ink.  I used this as well as the sweet sorbet papers to make some beads.  I threaded them onto a length of yarn to make a lovely necklace.

After all that crafting, I was in need of a cup of tea and a hobnob (and a little look at my Stampin' Up! catalogue to see what goodies I might treat myself to this Sale-a-bration)

Now off you go to the next blog - but please come back soon x
