ICS Blog Hop Avant-Garden

Happy New Year!

I am so excited, as today we kick off the annual Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration promotion AND to inspire you our blog hop theme this month is Let's Sale-A-Brate! How fun and how lucky are we to kick off the annual promo with a hop!

Have you seen the Sale-A-Bration catalog yet?  Wow, there are so many choices! If you don't have a copy you can see it here:, if you are one of my customers, I mailed you a copy last month. If you don't have a demonstrator and need a copy feel free to request one from me free!

As a demonstrator, I was able to preorder from the 2017 Occasions catalog, which meant that I was also eligible to earn Sale-a-Bration items early.  For this card, I chose to use the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Avant Garden.

Along with the Avant-Garden Stamp Set, I used the following Stampin' Up! products:

Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum and Whisper White Cardstock
Daffodil Delight, Perfect Plum and Old Olive Ink Pads
Stitched Shapes Framelits
Layering Ovals Framelits
Bunch of Banners Framelits
Bitty Butterfly Punch
Wink of Stella Glitter Brush Clear
Jewel Rhinestones
Stampin' Dimensionals

Now, it's time to check out Anna's beautiful creation!  Head over to her blog and give her some love.

I hope you have a wonderful 2017!  Thank you for stopping by!
