I know Sale-a-bration is finished but I have one last project that I would like to share with you.
I found this lovely card on Pinterest (where else!) from Becky at Inking Idaho.
I changed it a little bit and I made 6 of them for the girls in my downline to show them my appreciation of their efforts in my team. Thanks, girls!!

Back to Christmas!!! I needed to get a wish list up on the fridge so that I could let Craig, my husband, know what to get me for Christmas and vice versa.
Did you know that Stampin’ Up! have On Board Sheets of chipboard? They come as 14.6cm x 35cm pieces and you get 6 in a pack for only $11.95. You can cut them using the Big Shot or just with your paper trimmer. I cut one in half and covered it in my favourite DSP, you guessed it, Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP!!
I created a word document of just lines and printed it out and trimmed it to fit. I mounted it in Real Red and Gumball Green respectively and stamped a couple of images from Bells & Boughs stamp set. I also printed out the heading for each one on Whisper White cardstock and used my other favourite framelit (Apothecary Accents) to mount it. I did cut a couple of extra shapes to create an edge. Then pop a magnet on the back and it’s good to go!! Let me know what you think!

I’ve got a few friends having birthday’s over the next few weeks, so I’ve had to take off the Christmas hat and put on a birthday one! It’s actually nice to do something different!
This one was for Fiona, in which I also included an SU! gift voucher. If you are looking for a gift for birthdays’ or Christmas, I’m happy to do vouchers.
I cased this one from Pinterest here. I loved the colour combination and, of course, who doesn’t love polka dots!!
One of my new favourite, non-Christmas, papers is Birds of a Feather DSP. It features some of the new in colours and is very cute. The catalogue doesn’t do it justice. I’ve used a few strips as the banners.
Stamp Set: Perfectly Penned
Ink: Primrose Petals
Paper: Primrose Petals, Whisper White, Birds of a Feather DSP

I am in love with the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP in the Holiday Catalogue. It is just gorgeous!!!! There are two sheets of flocked window sheets which are just beautiful!!!
I cased today’s card from fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Stephanie Robnett on a demo only facebook group. It’s not exactly the same but that doesn’t matter. I like it!!
I really love the Apothecary Accents framelits which I used to cut out the centre piece. They can even cut through the glimmer paper.
I coloured the flowers using blenders pens and ink pressed into the lid of the ink pad. I’m not very good at doing shading but I think I did ok on this one.
Stamp Set: Bells & Boughs

Paper: Naturals White, Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Apothecary Accents framelits, White organza ribbon, real red grosgrain ribbon, vintage brads, glimmer paper, blender pens.
Here is the final box of the series. Seeing as it is only 79 sleeps until Christmas (Aahhhh!!), I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas box as well. And there are such nice papers to choose from this year, so I need to try them all out!!
I used my favourite Labels Collection Framelits to mat the Heart of Christmas stamp from the Holiday Catalogue. You can just see it in the photo that I have used the Festive paper piercing pack on the Real Red layer. Looks really nice!! The snow flake is from Snow Flurry Die. You would never know it was hiding a little ink spot!!
The cards are following the same template as the other boxes. I’ve uused the Candelight Christmas Specialty DSP from the Holiday Catalogue. This paper is very nice and it includes two flocked window sheets which are very luxurious!! The Holiday Ornaments Framelits make cutting out the ornaments so easy! No more dodgy hand cutting for me! I also love the font on the Greetings of the Season stamp set. Very elegant.
I hope you have enjoyed the box that I made from Tanya’s tutorial.

This box looks so pretty!! I’m really happy with how it turned out. I used the Window Frames Collection Framelits and again used the Festive Paper Piercing pack. I used the Apothecary Accents framelits to put the frame at the bottom.
Here are the cards.
