Celebrating Sale-a-brations

Wooo hooo – welcome to Sale-a-brations! 

I am Celebrating such an exciting time of year for all Stampin Up lovers – by joining the ESAD-SU group (that stands for Extra Special Australian Demonstrator!) for a another fantastic Blog Hop.

You may have visited me before….but if you are unsure what a Blog Hop is – it means you can Hop from Blog to Blog to Blog and check out the projects we’ve made using 2010 Sale-a-brations stamp sets.   At the end of this post I will have a link to another Blog Hop Post and that will have a link to the next and so on until you loop back round to my blog.  I’m sure you’ll see a great range of examples made by the ESAD ladies.  I hope you enjoy hopping from Blog to Blog. 

Sale-a-bration runs from 25th January – 31 March 2010 and gives you the opportunity to earn FREE stamps.  There are three ways to earn FREE stamps.

  1. Spend $100 to earn one FREE Sale-a-bration set
  2. Host a workshop of at least $600 to earn one FREE Sale-a-bration set
  3. Join Stampin Up during Sale-a-bration and choose a FREE stamps set from the Idea Book & Catalogue

So give me a call to book a workshop today – and get on your way to earning FREE stamps.

ESAD-SU is a Yahoo Group for Aussie & NZ SU demonstrators.   It’s a great network of demonstrators who support and share with each other.  We run swaps, cyberstamps, ask questions and share idea’s and projects.  

Here’s my card I have made for the Sale-a-bration Blog Hop.  I decided to make a Pop-up Card using the Good Neighbors Stamp Set which is a cute little set that lets you mix and match the houses, roofs and trees.  The Pop-up bit is on the inside of the card.

Colours used: Brocade Blue, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and Very Vanilla.

Remember:  There is Blog Candy up for grabs if you if you leave a comment at the end of EACH Blog Hop post.

January Calendar Page

During 2010 – my friend and fellow stamper Susan Joyce is hosting a 6 x 6 Monthly Calendar Challenge.  You can see her Blog here    January’s calendar theme is Let’s Party – Celebrate the New Year. 

And as many of you know, I don’t do a lot of Scrapbooking – so I’ve decided to use the Monthly Calendar Challenge to create a little calendar album.

Here is my first page…..January 2010

The stamping in the background is all glittery – but you can’t really see it in the photo.  I decided on this because I was thinking – what does this time of year mean to me…..well it’s a new year and it’s all about summer and being hot and enjoying the warmth of the season.  This pic is of Sarah at Whale World in Albany.  It was a hot sunny summer’s day and she was enjoying playing in the play ground.
