Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop!

 

Welcome to stop #3 on the Stampin' Addict's Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop!  If you are hopping through in order than you've landed here from Holly's Rubber Redneck blog.  Didn't you just love what she did with the Fresh Vintage Stamp set?  If this is your first stop, all the blogs are linked together in a circle so you won't miss a thing. If you get lost along the way or just want to chat about what you've seen, head on over to Stampin' Addicts.

I didn't think it was possible for Stampin' Up! to come up with a Designer Series Paper I would love more than Spice Cake from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  But of course, they've done it again!  And I'm so excited to get to share with you the fabulous Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper.  I've already used the paper a lot and I'm going to end up spending a lot of money to get more free packs of this gorgeous stuff during Sale-A-Bration.  And remember, this is just one of the several items you can get free with any $50 purchase between now and March 31.

The first project is a mini album that features this beautiful paper and the Labels Collection Framelits from the Occasions Mini Catalog.  The top picture is the cover and the bottom picture is the back. I don't even know where to begin to tell you about this album but I love the way it turned out.  If you come back on Monday, I will share all the details including pictures of the rest of the pages.

The second project is a card that features the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad Pack and the Elementary Elegance Stamp Set also from the Sale-A-Bration.  This is also my version of the Stampin' Addict Sketch Challenge #121 inspired by Stacy McCain.  Isn't a fun sketch?  When you're over at Stampin' Addicts, be sure to check out all the fun challenges we have and play along.

And last, but not least, my mixed media project.  I decoupaged the paper to an 11"x14" canvas to make a home decor project.  I haven't attempted one of these for a long time but was inspired by a recent article in Stampin' Success, an exclusive publication for Stampin' Up! Demonstrators.  There are so many details to share on this one so come back on Wednesday for a closer look at how I put it together and some of the things I learned a long the way. 

I hope you enjoyed this look at the Everyday Enchantment Paper and that you love it as much as I do.  Thanks for stopping by and be sure to come back next week for a closer look at the projects. Next stop on the hop is Tanya's Tinkerin' In Ink and her look at the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad Pack (which coordinates beautifully with this paper so you're going to need to place a couple of orders during Sale-A-Bration to get both).  Happy Hopping!

How fun! The mini album is so cute, and when I saw the home decor project, I immediately thought it looked like something I'd see in the IB&C or SS (you should submit it)! Can't wait to see the rest of the mini album tomorrow.
