Happy Valentine's Day!

Hi everyone! Can you believe it's already February 14th and we're halfway through Sale-A-Bration already?!! This Friday, a new selection of SAB freebies are going to be available in addition to the wonderful selections already released. Supplies for all SAB items are while supplies last, so don't wait until March 30th if there is a stamp set or DSP, etc. that you just HAVE to have!

I whipped up this cute Valentine's card today for my hubby. I haven't pulled out This Little Piggy in a long time - it was a definite must have from the new annual catalogue last June! My card was CASEd from the fabulous Amy O'Neill, a fellow SU demonstrator in the USA.
Sorry for the slightly blurry picture - I'm going to have to find a new way to watermark my photos - the quality is being lost when I save the images!

Hope you got to spend Valentine's Day with someone you love!

Happy Stampin',

Party Pandas in the House for SUO Challenges #193


As soon as I saw the new Sale-A-Bration brochure, I knew I had to have those adorable pandas! When my husband and I were visiting southern California last year, we spent a few hours at the San Diego Zoo and saw some pandas in person. It was a definite highlight! There is a family of pandas coming to the zoo here in Calgary this spring; you can bet I will be paying them a visit as soon as they get settled in!

Sale-A-Bration is THE BEST promotion offered from Stampin' Up! From January 3 to March 31, 2018, you get to choose a free item with every $60 purchase (before taxes and shipping)! It's also a wonderful time to sign up as a demonstrator too; the starter kit is still $135 for any $165 of product of your choosing (plus no taxes and no shipping!) BUT you get additional 2 FREE STAMP SETS! No price limit! That is potentially another $100+ in free product depending on which stamp sets you choose. Isn't that amazing?!

I used some Tutti Frutti DSP cut at 2" x 5-1/4" to layer on my Whisper White piece of cardstock, and cut the red glimmer heart from the Wood Crate framelits dies. I am entering this creation in the current challenge over at SUO Challenges, #193, Hearts A Plenty. You can check out the link here: http://suochallenges.com/?p=6479 to view the projects. The challenge is to create a card to celebrate Valentine's Day. I plan to send these cuties to my 3 nieces who are attended various universities across the country, just so they know I am thinking of them! Everyone likes getting mail, right?

Click on the link on the right side of this screen to view all the amazing Sale-A-Bration freebies up for grabs including Party Pandas! There are also a couple of offerings when you spend $120 (or you can choose 2 of the $60 SAB goodies if you prefer). Shop 242/7 in my online store at https://www.stampinup.com/ecweb/default.aspx. If your order is under $200, please use this month's host code:

Thanks for stopping by! I can't believe it has been so long since I posted to my blog. I am much more active on my facebook page - just search Scotian Stamper so you don't miss out on any news!

Christmas Patchwork

Hi everyone! The new holiday catalogue has been live since Sept. 1 and is FULL of amazing new products! When something new comes out, we often forget about the "old" stuff (even though the annual catalogue has only been out 3 months!) Did you know it has a whole section of Christmas products too?! The new Be Merry DSP can be found on page 188 with the classic Christmas colours of Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green. I inked up a returning favorite from last year's holiday catalogue, Cookie Cutter Christmas (page 116 of the annual catalogue) and created this fun card:
Supplies:
Paper: Whisper White Thick, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Be Merry DSP
Stamps: Cookie Cutter Christmas
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Other: Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch

The coordinating Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon can be found on page 198 of the annual catalogue and adds a little texture to the front.

I hope you can join me on September 15 for my first Christmas class of the season! We'll be making 6 cards in total (2 each of 3 designs - including this one!), 2 gift tags, and a gift card holder. Please register by Sept. 8. Cost is $25. Email me for further details!

If you would like to purchase the supplies to create this fun project, shop my online store by clicking the link over there --->

Happy Stampin'!

Christmas in July!

With only a few days left in July (where has the time gone?!) now is a great time to get a head start on those Christmas projects! Until the end of July, there is a fantastic gift pack bonus offered from Stampin' Up! when you join our family of demonstrators! You still choose the regular starter kit (choose $165 of products and pay just $135) PLUS you will get another $94 worth of products for FREE!! Included is a new stamp set from the upcoming holiday catalogue, not available to customers until September!! You pay just $135 and get $259 worth of Stampin' Up! goodies PLUS pay no shipping!! Amazing, right?!! There is no catch - this offer is welcome to all, whether you're just looking for a discount for yourself, want to start a hobby business, or start your own full-time home business and earn an income! Extra bonus: As demonstrators, we have early access to the holiday catalogue a whole month ahead of customers, on August 1! (demonstrators got to see a PDF of the new holiday catalogue today....simply amazing!!!)
I joined Stampin' Up! over 3 years ago, and because of SU have met some amazing people I would never have met otherwise! The perks of being a part of the SU family reach far beyond discounts and sneak-peeks, the friendships and fun we have are the best, and the sense of community is nothing short of wonderful! I'd love to have you join me on this adventure. Contact me to join my team!

Have a fabulous weekend! I hope you find time to do something creative :) (and join my team...seriously....what have you got to lose?!)
