Occasions & Sale-a-bration Catalogues Sneak Peek Blog Hop

Welcome to another ESAD Blog Hop!

This time we are all doing a sneak peek for you from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogues which start on 4th January, 2017.

There is so so much I had to choose from with these new catalogues and it was hard to decide on just one set or bundle to use but decided to go with the Balloon Adventures bundle.

Balloon Adventures Bundle $90.75

This is such a fun bundle to play with and so many possibilities – my projects today are just the start!

First up I have this fun card …

This one is super quick and easy to do and uses Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.

Now when I had stamped my balloons I pulled out the framelits to find there was no outline to cut the stamped images and thought what??   Then I thought hmm what about our balloon bouquet punch?  would they fit in that?  and YES they do!!  The larger balloon in the punch is perfect!

To finish off my card I just popped on some Rhinestones and Enamel Shapes in Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  Just using those simple embellishments makes the card pop!

My second card today is a shaker card …

I had fun making this card!  You can I’ve used the Balloon Pop-up die to create my front layer and decided to use my corner rounder punch to keep with the rounded corners.

I love the Sweet Sugarplum and Soft Sky colour combination and the Peekaboo Peach behind the dazzling details glimmer balloon makes the other colours pop.

I used the Fancy Frost Sequins inside my shaker …

I also used extra Foam adhesive strips so the sequins didnt all fall to the bottom.  I just popped it behind the Party On Banner to hold them in that middle section – a tip I got from Holly from the Stampin’ Up! Home Office in one of their training videos.

Now this bundle will be available from 4th January and will retail at $90.75 so that would qualify you for any one of the new Sale-a-bration items for free!

What is Sale-a-bration? 

Sale-a-bration is a yearly sales event from Stampin’ Up!  It runs from  4th January to 31st March and rewards their customers for their support.

All the items in the Sale-a-bration catalogue are free for every $90 in your orders.  So if you spend $150 you’ll get one set for free however if you spend $180 you’ll get two sets for free!   We also have rewards for Hosting a party or workshop and for joining the Stampin’ Up! family during Sale-a-bration so be sure to contact me about those.
