Birthday Sale- A-Bration

2013_03_19IMG_0959 Happy Birthday to me!  I love it that the Stampin Up Sale- A- Bration is during my birthmonth.  As a matter of fact if you have not taken advantage of the fantastic sale-a-bration, time is running out. Sale-a-bration ends on March 22 so there is still time to stock up on your favorite products and earn free products too.    Todays card was my free sale-A-Bration item -the Happy Hello #130149 Simply Sent Kits.  I used only the product that came in the card kit to make this very quick and easy card.

Take 2 into 1 Happy Hello

2013_02_03 Call me crazy with this card- I took 2 of the Simply Sent Happy Hello Kits to make this card.  Why not since the  Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit is one of 13 all new items along with 6 items in the Stampin Up annual catalog that are free during Stampin Up’s Sale-A-Bration (from now through March 22, 2013).   During Sale-A-Bration, for every $50 in product sales you will earn 1 item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE.  Plus during Sale-A-BRation, for an order of $150 your will get 3 items free plus a pack of Silver  Glimmer paper for a free bonus and of course the $25 in Hostess dollars to spend as you wish.

I started with a Daffodil Delight cardbase and layered it with whisper white and then began slicing and dicing 2 simply sent cards to come up with this layout.  Once I came up with this card, I decided I had to place another order so I can get another set of these super fun card kits.

Happy Hello

DSCI0007 Cammie was as excited as I was  when w.e saw that Stampin Up introduced the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kits as a free item in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. We both love the Stampin Up kits and love the free kits even more and today Cammie is showcasing 2 cards that she made using this fun kit.  Be sure to check out yesterday’s post to see how I used the kit.

Today’s card started out as a simply sent card from the Happy Hello Kit #130149.  The Simply Sent Kits are designed to make card making a snap and include 8 diecut cards and super cute coordinating diecut envelopes and embellishments to make 8 cards.  The sample cards are always cute but Cammie will never start out usiing the kit as designed she immediately thought outside the Simply Sent kit and add her own twist to make her cards.  Today’s card sshows what Cammie did to change it up just by adding a piece of daddodil cardstock to the die cut image.  DSCI0008

For Cammie’s second card, she flipped the diecut, and added Basic Gray cardstock and stepped it up using the white gel pen to create some faux stitching and embossed the sentiment in white.

The Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit is something that every card maker needs in their arsenal so that you can make a card in an instant. Hurry because Sale-A-Bration ends on March 22 and there is no limit to the number of free items you can get. This years Sale- A- Bration features 13 all new items plus 6 items from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  For every $50 in product sales you will earn 1 item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE.  Plus during Sale-A-BRation, for an order of $150 your will get 3 items free plus a pack of Silver  Glimmer paper for a free bonus and of course the $25 in Hostess dollars to spend as you wish.

Tomorrow, I will take the challenge to a new level so be sure to check back.

2013_02_02IMG_0955We were so excited when we saw that Stampin Up introduced the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kits as a free item in the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  This years Sale- A- Bration features 13 all new items plus 6 items from the Stampin Up annual catalog.  For every $50 in product sales you will earn 1 item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog for FREE.  Plus during Sale-A-BRation, for an order of $150 your will get 3 items free plus a pack of Silver  Glimmer paper for a free bonus and of course the $25 in Hostess dollars to spend as you wish.  Cammie and I challenged each other to come up with ways to use the Simply Sent Kits.  I started simple and used the Simply Sent Happy Hello kit #130149 as intended but switched up the location of the flower.  For my second card, I simply just layered a folded white tea lace paper doily #129399 and got a completly different look.

2013_02_02IMG_09512013_02_02MG_0953Stay tuned for more ideas to use this kit in a non-traditional way.
