Have you checked out the beautiful Botanical Prints Project Medley on page 61 in the Stampin’ Up! January – June 2020 Mini Catalog? The product medley is a wonderful kit. In addition to gorgeous Designer Series Paper, included is a 6-piece cling stamp set, coordinating dies, and accents for creating beautiful projects. The 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper features 8 each of 6 double-sided designs for a total of 48 sheets. In addition, the product medley contains 4 sheets of die-cut accents, 2 each of 2 designs; 4 sheets of laser-cut overlays, 2 each of 4 designs; Old Olive Twill Ribbon and 12 metal bee embellishments.
This past weekend I was able to spend some time crafting and created the following card. It highlights a sheet of the Designer Series Paper from the Botanical Prints Product Medley. The card design is the Playtime with Paper Team’s weekly challenge and comes from Sunday Stamps design SSC202. The challenges are a fun way for team members to engage with one another and share their interpretation of the design sketch.
Create card base: Basic Black cardstock (4-1/4″ x 11″, score and fold at 5-1/2″).
Cut three strips of Whisper White cardstock: 1-11/16″ x 4″.
Select desired Designer Series Paper and cut 3-7/8″ x 9/16″.
Attach the Designer Series Paper strips to the Whisper White strips with Snail Adhesive. Position the strips evenly onto the card base and adhere.
Using the triple leaves dies from the Nature’s Root Dies, emboss and cut two sets of leaves from scraps of Basic Black cardstock.
Stamp the sentiment from the So Sentimental Stamp Set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad onto a 3″ x 2-1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. Use the Stitched So Sweetly Dies to cut the shape.
Referring to the card photo, attach the leaves to the top and bottom of the sentiment layer.
Add sentiment layer to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Finish by embellishing sentiment with Basic Rhinestone Jewels.
I will be using more elements from the Botanical Prints Product Medley to create additional cards and other projects so be sure to subscribe to “Get My Posts” to receive notifications of new posts.

The past few weeks, I have been promoting that during Sale-a-Bration you have the opportunity to earn free product. One of the many products you can earn is the Lovely Lattice stamp set. This is a beautiful stamp set that you will have fun coloring. There are so many techniques you can choose from when you put the images to the paper. My personal favorite would be to color with the Stampin’ Blends or the Aqua Painter. Take advantage of Sale-a-Bration and earn this set for free with a $50 purchase from my online store.
As with many of our catalogs, the Occasions catalog has it’s share of project kits from Stampin’ Up!. The Made to Bloom Kit makes it possible for you to bloom all year long. In the kit, you will also receive pre-printed elements which allows you to add beautiful color to your cards. The kit also contains a stamp set, accents, stamp pad, stamp block, adhesive backed pearls, card bases and envelopes. Once you complete all the cards, you can store them in the acetate box included or, give them away as a gift.
I love being able to have a box of cards for any occasion. Stampin’ Up! adds new project kits to every catalog each year. When you are new to stamping or have limited time to craft, these kits are a life saver. Being able to have all the products in one box saves time and helps you improve your crafting skills.
Another great product in the Sale-a-Bration catalog is the Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove Foil Sheets. They are shimmery foil sheets that look amazing under light. Use them beneath your sentiment, as a background or just as a small accent. No matter how you use them, you won’t be disappointed. When you get your hands on them you will agree that they are amazing. These sheets are available for free in the Sale-a-Bration catalog with a $50 purchase.
The sheets can be used as accents on cards and boxes. A good example is the Pillow Boxes in the video.
Sale-a-Bration is truly a celebration each year when it comes around. It’s the most anticipated sale of the year. Earn free product as you shop the annual catalog and the brand new Occasions Catalog which has so many new Spring products. There are three ways to earn free product from the Sale-a-Bration catalog. Earn free product for every $50 you purchase (before shipping and tax), host a qualifying party and earn free product based on your sales or join my team and not only earn free products, but add the new Craft and Carry Tote to your supply order. So as you can see, you have options.

You can get your hands on some new Clearance Rack items if you act fast. The Clearance Rack has had some items added to it recently. It was a surprise to me as well given that we already have a year-end closeout sale in motion.
The Clearance Rack has a fresh face this week. If you like to save while you shop and plan ahead, this is the perfect time to take advantage of the savings. I know some of you are focusing on Christmas but sometimes we need a distraction from all the hustle and bustle. Take a minute to see what’s on sale.
Some of the new products added are perfect for the new year and Valentine’s Day. Take advantage of this wonderful sale and pick up some products to add to your “loving” collection.
