Sale-a-Bration is coming!!

I'm so excited about this year's Sale-a-Bration choices. Like every year when you spend $50 you can pick free products. This year you have your choice between a 6 x6 paper stack, 4 great stamp sets or a brand new punch! But that's not all. This year Stampin' UP! is also letting you pick some stamp sets in the current catalog including "Hello again" and "Dasher".

This sample card shows one of the Sale-a-bration stampsets, the paper is from the sweet pea paper stack in the new occasions mini.

Now is a great time to have a workshop! During sale-a-bration the hostess earns a free Sale-a-bration product with $300 in sales. To make it even better, I will be giving away the Love Bug Level 1 Hostess set if you Host a workshop on FRIDAY JANUARY 8th! Book your workshop today!

It's Christmas...

Okay I know I've been missing for a few days, but it's Christmas. I've been crafting a lot but I can't show you what I've been making because they are Christmas presents for my loved ones. And they love me so much they read my blog too.

My posts will be less frequent for the next couple of weeks. I will keep you informed of any Stampin up specials and show you a few projects, but I won't be posting everyday.

Check tomorrow for infomation about Stampin' Up's 12 days of Christmas promotion. I can't wait to see what they are going to do for us after the Thanksgiving bundles!!

I know many of you are already getting excited about Sale-a-Bration, so am I. I will be having a workshop on January 5th at 6:30 to introduce the new products. This is FREE you just need to RSVP.

Don't forget to schedule your workshop for Jan and Feb, my calendar is filling up!

the rule of three

]This card is one that we made at the stamp-a-stack last Sunday. This is one of the simplest layouts for a card. When I have a creativity block this is the layout I always go to. When designing a card you can use the rule of three. Three repeating images make a great focal point. This works well for small images.
