Did you know if you spend $90 on products from either the Annual catalogue or the Occasions catalogue, you can earn any of the products in the Sale-a-bration catalogue for free?  Isn’t that fabulous!!

Did you know that you can get a Project Life card collection for free?  It’s the Memories in the Marking Project Life Specialty card collection and it’s gorgeous!  You get 30 specialty cards that supplement our other Project Life collections.  There are 10 4″ x 6″ cards and 20 3″ x 4″ cards.  And of these cards, there are 15 overlays and 15 emboss resist cards!!!

Whilst these cards are great for using with Project Life, they are also good for making quick and easy cards.

So for my first card, I used a 4″ x 6″ black and white overlay.  Now remember it’s a bigger size than our usual card size, so keep that in mind when cutting your cardstock.  Ask me how I know!!  lol.

I put a piece of white underneath the overlay and then created my ice creams on a separate piece of cardstock and cut them out.  Aren’t the honeycomb embellishments to die for?  They are so cute!  I stamped the sentiment very carefully on the overlay in Staz-on ink and put it aside to dry for a while so it didn’t get smudged.

For my next card, I used one of the smaller 3″ x 4″ overlays and I added a piece of white cardstock underneath again.  I then used another SAB stamp set, What I love, for the sentiment.  A little bunch of flowers in the corner and it’s all done!!

For my last card, I used one of the emboss resist 4″ x 6″ pieces.  I carefully coloured each section with a sponge dauber.

I used the SAB Perfect Pairings stamp set for the sentiment and did a little paper piercing around the oval for an extra bit of detail.  A silver bow and again, another quick card.

CTC62 – My Favourite Sale-a-bration

ctc_header

Welcome to another week of Case-ing the Catty!!! Gee, the year is flying past already!! This week, we are showcasing our favourites from the Sale-a-bration catalogue. There are so many gorgeous freebies in this catalogue that it makes it hard to choose just one.

I decided to case the card on page 10 which features a Project Life card and the Perfect Pairings stamp set.

I don’t have the SAB Project Life cards yet (yes, you can get a Project Life kit for free!!), so I decided to make my own. I used the It’s My Party DSP stack and based my colours on the co-ordinating colours of the DSP. So I have a Sahara Sand base, then a Crushed Curry layer and then I created the window using Melon Mambo. I also used the SAB Botanical Gardens Designer Vellum Stack on the window.

I created the square window using two of the square framelits and ran them through the big shot at the same time. Fortunately, I had them lined up straight!!

I then stamped the sentiment from the Perfect Pairings set using my trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig using the Archival Basic Black ink. As it was a bit wet, I used my heat gun to dry it off quicker so I could stamp the smaller stamp as well. It’s a bit hard to see in the photo but I drew a square around window in Crushed Curry like the original.

I then assembled the window and made some confetti using my confetti star punch. I put lots of dimensionals around the edge of the back of the square and added the banners at the bottom. (Note to self: make sure you put tape on the back of the banner, otherwise confetti falls out the gap. Ask me how I know!!)

A final bow in the new Melon Mambo baker’s twine and voila, all done!!
