Last week, I held my Sale-a-bration Final Fling party. This was a free party for anyone who had joined my team during SAB, or who had spent £150 with me during SAB or hosted an event for during the three months of SAB.
I made all my attendees a little gift using the gorgeous Something Borrowed suite of DSP, lace trim and embellishments. It was a scissor charm in one of our little treat boxes.
We had great fun and even had a game of Pass the parcel – which I’ve just learned is Hot Potato in the States. I also raffled off some special prizes and of course, we made some cards using a great selection of this year’s Sale-a-bration products. These products are free with a £45 order right up until March 31st so don’t miss out. Find out more about Sale-a-bration here.
Our first card was cased from a card I found on Pinterest by US demo Dawn Tidd. I changed up the colours and the DSP but used the same layout as she did.
Our next card was also cased from a card I found on Pinterest, this time from UK demonstrator Julie Kettlewell. Again I changed up the colours as I wanted to showcase our SAB items.
And our final card was cased from a German demonstrator, Helga Hopen. Again, I found Helga’s card on Pinterest and instantly fell in love with it. I didn’t really change much about her card as I thought it was just perfect as it was.
To CASE is a term coined by us demonstrators in the Stampin’ Up world and the letters CASE stand for Copy and Share Everything. We are very proud of our open door policy on designs and as long as we give credit to the original designer, copying a design is perfectly acceptable. Many people tell me they are not crafty or they wouldn’t know where to start when making a card or any other papercrafting project. This is where CASE’ing plays a perfect role.
If you’re stuck for inspiration, or in a hurry, the internet is full of inspiration. Google, Pinterest, Blogs – all full of ideas to inspire you. You can change things up if you wish to suit your style or supplies or copy exactly, but the original ideas are there to whet your crafting appetite. So give it a try, or why not start with a cardmaking kit from Stampin’ Up to dip your toe in gently. Have a look at my online shop and check out our range of kits.
If you have any questions, do drop me a line, I would be delighted to hear from you.
until next time, happy crafting.
