Julie's Jems Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop!

It's almost time for Sale-a-bration (SAB), one of the most exciting times in the Stampin' Up calendar!  During Sale-a-bration, for every £45 you order, you can choose a product from an exclusive SAB range, ABSOLUTELY FREE!!!!  What a deal!

Sale-a-bration runs from January 28 to March 31, and there is no limit to the number of free items you can snag in that time.

To celebrate the start of this fantastic annual promotion, the ladies in our team, Julie's Jems, are running a blog hop today, showcasing projects made with SAB goodies.

If you've found your way to me from my fabulous Stampin' Up Mummy Julie Kettlewell's blog, welcome!  I know she will have wowed you with her creations.  Please follow the link the the next blog in the blog hop, which should be the fantastic Sharon Glynn.  I'll add a full list at the end in case you get lost!

So here are my two Sale-a-bration makes, using a SAB exclusive sentiment stamp set called See Ya Later. (Excuse the quality of the later photos, it was very late and I couldn't get the light right!)

This is a box card I made for my grandson Zachary's first birthday...the sentiment from the See Ya Later set really captures how I feel about my special little man...."Once in a lifetime you meet someone who changes everything"  The box card was made following a fab tutorial by Monica Gale, you can find it here.  The little animals are from the Zoo Babies stamp set and I've cut them out with my paper snips.  I added some highlights of red glimmer paper for sparkle.

My second project is a simple card using another of the sentiments..I love the little alligator!  You may have noticed another little sneak peek...the papers are from a gorgeous new pack called Fresh Prints, from the new seasonal catalogue which also launches on Tuesday.  Please get in touch if you would like a copy of any of our catalogues.
