Lots of Lavender Sachet Video Tutorial

I recently held my Occasions Catalog Kick Off the end of December and so I thought I’d share the projects that we made with you over the next few days along with the tutorials for them.  Today’s lavender sachet was their gift for attending.

Everyone was great about the fact I wasn’t able to finish assembling them myself due to a last minute procedure the day before, so it became a third project for them. LOL! I’ve got such a great group of stampers!

We had a lot of fun using the new products and stamping together. Everyone who attended not only made 3 fun projects, but also got to see the fun new products from them for the first time.

Want to see how they are made? I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial for you and also a printed tutorial too!

Hello Sunshine

Today’s cards were some that I received in swaps and are created using  products that are limited time Sale-a-bration items. I think these two stamp sets are a wonderful addition to any stampers collection since their sentiments cover all kinds of occasions.

These first two cards are created with the Hello stamp set (141240/141243). Joanne gave me this bright and cheerful Hello card. It also uses our Sale-a-bration Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper (141021) which is one of the three products only available until February 15th.

Hello SC SAB Swap 2016 (6)

And this card uses our yummy Mint Macaron In Color along with Blackberry Bliss.

Hello SC SAB Swap 2016 (7)

I love the way that Kate tucked the Silver Metallic Thread (138402) behind the layered Flower Medallion (137417) and Pansy Punches (130698). And can you see the embellishment that adds a bit of shine to the center of the flower? It’s one of our Itty Bitty Accents Epoxy Stickers (137856).

And here are some samples using the Sky Is the Limit stamp set (141282/141349). This first one Roxie designed for Valentine’s Day. It uses the Love Blossoms Designer Series Paper Stack (140548).

Sky is the Limit SC SAB Swap 2016

And another from Tanisha. I love the quick and easy clouds she sponged for the background.

Sky is the Limit SC SAB Swap 2016 (8)

And these next two use the Sale-a-bration Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper (141021).

Sky is the Limit SC SAB Swap 2016 (9) Sky is the Limit SC SAB Swap 2016 (7)

And finally this card from Joanne  She used one of my favorite Designer Series Paper Stacks from the Occasions Catalog, Going Places (140581).  I just love the White Vellum cardstock (101856) propeller and Neutrals Collection Candy Dots (130934) she added to it.

Sky is the Limit SC SAB Swap 2016 (4)

Something so small – just makes this a special little card.

Did you know that there were just 3 more days to earn 3 of our Sale-a-bration items? Pages 16 – 19 include two stamp sets and some beautiful Designer Series Paper that are only available to earn until February 15th after that they’ll be gone – so why not get your favorites before it’s too late.

Sale-a-bration Ends Today

It’s Bloomin’ Marvelous (item 129651/129654) – that’s what these cards are that I received during my Leadership swaps. Isn’t it great that this set coordinates with our NEW Bitty Butterfly Punch (item 129406) from the Spring Catalog?

Leadership Swap Christy Kimball

And I love the color combination that was used for this card.

Leadership Swap No Name 5

Patterned Occasions (item 129621/129624) is such a cute stamp set. You can use the images with or without the sentiments. Here is a great card that anyone would love to get any time of year. You could even tuck a little gift card or invitation for coffee inside for a friend.

Leadership 2013Shoebox Swap No Name (3)

This final card was made using the Madison Avenue Stamp Set (item 129657/129660).

Leadership Swap Cindy Mitchell-Clark

Sycamore Street

I love the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper that you can earn for FREE during Sale-a-bration and so I thought I would show the note pads that my friend Cindy brought to our last Team Meeting for her swap.

Feel Goods Clipboards Cindys  March swap

Don’t you love the sentiment set that she used to stamp on the note pads? Feel Goods (item 129681/129684) is well named since when I see or use these sentiments I just feel – well good.

And here are a couple of cards from my Leadership swaps that also use the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper. This first one uses the Henry Says stamp set (item 128090/128093) from the Spring Catalog.

Henry Says Leadership 2013Shoebox Swap Andi Potler (2)

And this last card uses the Oh, Hello stamp set (item 130730/130733) and one of my favorite accessories, the Paper Doilies (item 129399).

I’m Feeling Sentimental about Bloomin’ Marvelous

Here are two more cards I wanted to share with you that my Team members gave me during our swap this month. I think they are both such fantastic cards that I didn’t want to not share them with you before the end of today.

This first card Cindy made and in addition to the Feeling Sentimental stamp set (item 1296237/129630) it uses our Natural Composition Specialty Designer Series Paper (item 126917). I love the richness and vintage feel of this card, don’t you?

Feeling Sentimental Team swap Cindy March 2013

And did you know that since the Natural Composition DSP has a raised pattern on it you can use it to create any color paper you’d like simply by adding classic ink with a sponge? Cindy also used our Apothecary Accents Framelits (item 127003) to create this great negative image where she placed her sentiment. How cool is that?

Tamara’s swap uses the Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set (item 129651/129654) and just makes smile and think of spring. I love the colors she chose to go with the Summer Smooches Designer Series Paper (item 125409)  she used across the bottom.

Team Swap Tamara March 2013

We have such fun together at the Blue Mountain Stampers Team meetings each month. Have you ever thought about becoming a Demonstrator? I would love to have you join in the fun.

Feeling Sentimental

Can you believe there are just a few more days until Sale-a-bration ends? You only have until Friday, March 22nd to earn your FREE items. As we wrap up Sale-a-bration  I thought I would show you some projects made with one of my favorite stamp sets that you can earn during Sale-a-bration, the Feeling Sentimental Stamp Set (item 129627/129630).

This first card is one I made during a challenge with my demo friends. It’s a vertical z fold card and I love the way it turned out. Did you notice how I used the Basic Designer Button (item 129325) – I thought it looked a bit like a coin.

Feeling Sentimental zfold card

Here is a great card that I made during my shoebox swap at Leadership. I love the colors and am really going to miss this year’s Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper, Sycamore Street (item 127540).

Leadership 2013Shoebox Swap Martha Lucia Gomez (7)

And here is a card that I received in a Leadership swap from Barbara. It uses the Honeycomb Embossing Folder (item 129378) in the background. I really like the feeling of texture this card has.

Feeling Sentimental Leadership Swap 2013 Barbara Horn (1)

And finally another favorite of mine from the Leadership shoebox swap. If you attended my Sale-a-bration Celebration event you were able to make one of these for yourself. I love the way this card uses the Be of Good Cheer Designer Series Paper (item 126896). It’s not just for Christmas as you can see.

Can you believe there are only 8 days left until Sale-a-bration ends? I’m sure going to miss the stamp sets and especially the Sycamore Designer Series Paper  that I’ve gotten for FREE during Sale-a-bration. The Sycamore Designeer Series Paper (item 127540) and Ribbon & Button Pack (item 130812) have been used with our very popular Feeling Sentimental Stamp Set (item 129627/129630) for this next card.

Leadership 2013 Shoebox Swap Dana Mosley

This last card uses our Madison Avenue Stamp Set (item 129657/129660) along with the sentiment from the Vintage Verses Stamp Set (item 129633/129636) also available in our Sale-a-bration flyer.
