Three Days of Bliss

Sale-A-Bration Bliss I still get excited about getting FREE stamps during Sale-A-Bration. Who couldn’t, right? This year was no exception when I saw the upcoming Sale-A-Bration brochure and what it contained!

Over the next three days, I’m going to share with you some projects that include my favorite FREE stamp set from the 2011 Stampin’ UP! Sale-A-Bration brochure, Bliss.   If you didn’t get the brochure in the mail from me, you’ll need to email me so I can get you on the list to receive the next ones.  In the meantime, you can view the brochure here.  Sale-A-Bration Brochure. Remember all it takes during Sale-A-Bration is a $50 order to get your own Bliss stamp set for FREE. As an extra bonus, anyone that places a Sale-A-Bration order with me, will get one of the “bliss”ful cards in the mail for your own use. Sale-A-Bration - Bliss

This is what I call a scrap card because it was made of all the scraps that I’ve been holding on to since I started stamping.  This card is a little bit rustic and a little bit vintage..would you call that rustic vintage? It reminds me of all the old barns that I see on American Pickers. I guess you could say that I was “picking” through my scraps for the treasures I needed for this project! This card would be perfect for a wedding, a valentine, a love note or any extremely happy occasion.
