Saying Good-bye to Limited Edition Sale-a-Bration Items

Honeycomb Happiness Sale-a-Bration Linda Bauwin

In today's video I show you a quick tip to use the beautiful Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper and the Hello Stamp Set. Both of these items are part of our Sale-a-Bration Sale, but are only available until February 15, 2016.  So you need to act before they are gone for good.

The Artistic Designer Series Paper comes in a pack of 12 sheets: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs that are 12" x 12". They are acid and lignin free with soft colors of Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay,  Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Mint Macaron, Soft Sky, Tempting Turquoise and Whisper White.

I also used the Honeycomb Happiness Stamp Set which is a Sale-a-Bration Item but will be available until March 31, 2016 the end of the Sale-a-Bration Promotion period.  This set is perfect to go with the quick tip I show you in the video.  Here is another card I did with the same technique.

Honeycomb Happiness Linda Bauwin

I used the Wink Of Stella on the ice cream scoops and they look so good it makes you hungry.

In the video, I talk about some lucky person winning a $50 gift certificate each week in February.  It was going to be my way of thanking all my loyal customers.   When I did that video, I never thought about this being consider gambling.  Because not all states allow gambling, I am not allowed to offer something like this on my blog.  So instead I am offer a free gift to who that order in my Online Store or purchase my Stamp of the Month Kit.

Look Who Came To Stamp With Me


Kim Williams from Butler, PA is such a blessing to me.   She came to visit last week with a bag of stamping project plus a cake and cupcakes.  I tell her she is my sweetest friend as she continues to bring me sweets.

We always have so much to catch up on when she comes.  So we needed to chat away before we could be creative, as we can't do both at the same time.  We even had a little visit from our Hola Girl Cindy Baughman from Hawaii by phone to help us with our creativity.

Cindy wants us to Face Time with her when we get together.  Even though we would love to.  Cindy needs to understand Kim and I have a hard time even doing selfies, so I have no clue how she thinks we will figure Face Time.   Maybe some day we will figure all that out and surprise her.

Wanted to share these great cards Kim brought for me to stamp.  You can find all the instruction over on Kim's Blog.

Bookmark Card Linda Bauwin

This card has a cute bookmark and uses the What I Love Stamp Set from Sale-a-Bration.

Vellum Rose Wonder Linda Bauwin

So love this card as it uses the Rose Wonder Stamp Set with vellum.  But check out the Expressions Natural Elements 'thanks".  Kim used the Gold Wink a Stella to color it.  Simply stunning.

Pleated Card Front

Pleated Card Linda Bauwin

Today's creative fold video was inspired by this card created by Missy Shipman for a card swap I was in.  It uses the beautiful designer series paper Botanical Gardens and the Botanical Builders Framelit Dies.  The designer series paper and the framelits are both part of a bundle that also includes a stamp set.

This bundle is huge, as the stamp set has 17 photopolymer stamps, the framelit dies include 14 dies that match the stamp set, plus the designer series paper that is 12 sheets 2 each of 6 designs.  And the great part is it is my Stamp of the Month Kit this month.  You will also get the Perfect Pairings Stamp Set in this kit and an added surprise from me.  

If you already have this bundle, you can substitute other products in your bundle.  Here is the card I created for the video.  This is a bonus card, as it is not in my Stamp of the Month Kit, you will 7 other card designs in that kit

Pleated card botanical blossoms Linda Bauwin


When you watch today's video to learn how to do the creative fold, you will see me have a major senior moment.  Do you ever get something in your head and can't get it out?  Well that is what happens in the video and some times it scares me that this happens, but hay you got to laugh at yourself right?

So in order to make this pleated card I used a piece of card stock that measures 2 3/4" x 7 1/2" and I scored it at 1 3/8", 2 1/2", 4" and 4 1/2".  This is where I have my mental block.  You take the tip of the card stock and lineup on your trimmer at the 1 1/2" mark and you will cut at an angle to the 4 1/2" score line.


 Here are the cards I did using the same creative fold but with the Balloon Celebration Bundle.
