Kre8tors are saying Bye to Sale-a-Bration

Hello and welcome to our hopping group. This month we are saying bye bye to Sale-a-Bration. March is its final month. This year Sale-a-Bration has been full of nice surprises. Three product releases and first time ever in the history of Stampin' Up!® there are coordinating framelits for some of the sets. And there is only one month left of it all!

But do you know what else is coming to its end? The 2017-2019 In Colours, Powder Pink, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig. Which one will you miss the most? My favourite is the lemon-lime twist but I really like all these colours. So I decided to use them for my project.

I made a set of small cards (whisper white base 6" x 3", scored at 3") that fit into a pizza box. These boxes are part of the 3rd Sale-a-Bration release so available for free with a qualifying order. 

It's a fast project with the help of stamparatus, see it yourself in my short video.

I hope you enjoyed my little cards in a box and you are ready to hop to another blog. Either click on the "Next" image below to see what talented Cheryl Taylor came up with or choose a crafter by name from the list below. 

Scroll a little lower to see the full list of the products I used to create my project. With every £45 spent you qualify for a Sale-a-Bration item and this month tutorial bundle.

CASE Yourself - Let's Get Hopping Round 18 - Sympathy Card

Welcome to our lovely blog hop. This month we are CASE-ing our own projects. You are in for a treat with all the participating demonstrators from around the world. See it for yourself. Just follow the "Next" arrows to see other posts. Also, visit our Pinterest board to see a great selection of awesome projects.

You might or might not be familiar with the term "CASE". It means either Copy And Selectively Edit or Copy And Share Everything. I like the selectively edit version better. It was difficult to choose a project but at the end, I saw this card that I made some time ago. I made several of these for different occasions. For today's post, I decided to CASE a sympathy card.

It might sound a bit weird but I like making sympathy cards. When I was growing up in a little commie place all the sympathy cards were pretty much the same. Usually a photo of some flowers. In fact, to think of it, I've never seen an adult handmade card for this or any occasion when I was a kid. Can you even imagine? Me neither!

The sympathy cards are beautiful, sad and tranquil. When I make them I think of people I lost, namely my mami. I like to think she is with me here, crafting. Maybe that's why I find sympathy cards so beautiful; because she is in them. It might sound crazy to you, but you know what? It's ok. 

The card is easy to make. The silver foil embossed with the subtle folder looks great against the black background. I raised it with dimensionals. The flower, sentiment and butterfly are glued on with a multipurpose glue. I used a wink of Stella to highlight the butterfly body. Scatter some rhinestones around and boom, a beautiful  acard is done. 

Are you ready for another one? Just click on the arrow below and visit the super talented Susan Wong's blog. But before you do that, scroll down and see the full shopping list to make the card I showed you yourself. If you shop with me, besides the sale-a-bration freebies you will also get (also for free) this month tutorial bundle. Have a look at the bottom of this post for the sneak peek.

Thank you for stopping by today. Do you like my card? Let me know in the comments. I'd love to hear from you.
