Stampin’ Up! – CTC Blog Hop – Sale-A-Bration

Hi All

Hello and welcome to this week’s CASEing the Catty Blog Hop.

This week we are taking our inspiration from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.


Whether you’re joining the Hop here, or if you’ve hopped on over from the lovely Elizabeth Grossa BIG hello!

Remember to click on through this week’s CTC crew to see plenty of inspirational projects that the crew have created for you – there’s a full list on the CTC blog page if you get lost along the way.

I am so pleased that one of the items you can earn FREE during Sale-A-Bration is a set of Project Life cards – the Memories in the Making Project Life Speciality Card Collection. It’s such a bright happy set of cards in a colour palette of Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Watermelon Wonder, Basic Black, and white along with silver and gold.


This Sale-A-Bration collection co-ordinates with the Memories in the Making Card Collection, stamp set and Accessory pack from the Annual Catalogue – shown below as a bundle which means a 15% savings compared to purchasing the three (3) items individually.


I’ve made a couple of greeting cards using of the cards from the Speciality Card Collection, but hadn’t done any memory keeping with them so decided that would be my project for this week’s Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop.

I’ve taken my inspiration from page 9 and CASE’d the double layout in the top picture.


Here’s my layout.


The layout is about the Catalogue Launch Parties I held last month when the new Occasions Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration started. I love a party and a new catalogue is a great reason to celebrate, so that’s what we did!

The Title card is using one of the 4 x 6″ overlays available in the Sale-A-Bration speciality collection. In the collection there are several coloured overlays like the one above, but also some that are gold on one side and silver on the other.

I have loaned my Memories in the Making stamp set to a friend so had to improvise – always an opportunity to be creative.

The bottom left 3×4″ pocket on page one has a cute little “Love” stamped, punched out and added as an embellishment. Instead –  I took a photo of one of the pages of the Enjoy the Little Things Clipboard Project Kit – printed, punched out and matted it. A perfect sentiment for how I feel about being a Stampin’ Up! demo!


The 3×4″ that is in the bottom right hand pocket of page one has a Watermelon Wonder heart stamped over the sponged Watermelon Wonder area. This card is one of the UV  resist cards in the speciality card collection. you can add any colur to it – how flexible is that!


In the absence of the stamp set I used on the wooden hearts from the Memories in the making Accessory Pack as shown below.



And rather than using an ampersand like the original – I chose to have balloons on the bottom left pocket on page two .First I punched out a balloon using the Balloon Boutique Punch before adding a sticker from the Memories in the Making Accessory Pack.


The 3×4″ card at the top right of page two is another UV resist card which I sponged Daffodil Delight and I attached the photo using the washi tape from the Accessory Pack.

I do hope you’ve enjoyed my project for this week’s CTC Blog Hop.
