Did you attend the Stampin’ Up! stamp along event online last night? I did, but was a little surprised as it was not a true stamp-along in my book! But there were loads of pretty gift packaging ideas shared, and many of them could be translated into card ideas if you are not in need of packaging right now. A number of ideas were shown using the kraft gift boxes from the tag-a-box range – including altering the size of the box to make it a little more versatile. The measurements for these will be posted on the Stampin’ Up! homepage and I will let you know when they are available.
Talking of card ideas, did you order your Hip Hip Hooray kit yet? I ordered mine today and cannot wait for it to arrive for me to play with. I am loving the kits right now, as they are full of fun elements for making cards which are all cut and scored for you, meaning that you can go right ahead and get on with the fun bit! And Stampin’ Up are bringing out lots of new kits at the moment, and let me tell you they are just getting better and better. Why not try one out today?
There is even a kit available for free. But to get that one you will have to be quick. It is one of the SaleABration freebies which are only available until Monday. These freebies are really lovely this year (they always are, to be fair!) and very on-trend. I am absolutely loving the Banner Blast stamp set and coordinating Banner punch, they are so cute and so versatile, and totally “of the moment”! If you want the stamp set, again this will only be available until Monday, so get your orders in quick! You get one freebie with every £45 you spend, so get spending! The banner punch will be available in the new Annual Catalogue, however why not earn it for free this week, instead of paying for it in a few months time?!
So, your action for this week (before Monday) is to get your orders in for SaleABration. If you like the idea of the kits, why not get the Yay For Cards bundle, and choose the Good as Gold SAB freebie? Three kits for the price of two (ish)! – These are the Happenings Simply Created kit, the On Its Way Simply Sent kit, and the Good As Gold freebie. You’ll also get a ton of other goodies in there too! The bundle on its own makes at least 23 cards, then your freebie kit has another 8, but by being a bit clever with ho you put them together there is scope for a lot more than that. Why not give it a go? Who knows what you will create 🙂
