Control Freaks Blog Tour: Sale-a-bration Ideas

Are you ready to Sale-a-brate!? I'm so excited to participate in this month's Control Freaks Blog tour because we are showcasing projects featuring the awesome 2016 Sale-a-bration products. Whether you came from Debbie Henderson's blog or you are just joining the fun, you're in for a treat!

During the Sale-a-bration promotion (which ends March 31, 2015), you can earn a free gift for every $50 of Stampin' Up! products that you order. Who doesn't love free stuff!?

Did you see the three NEW gifts? There are two new stamp sets and some really fun Metallics Glitter Tape. I used the new stamp set Party Pants to create this card.

I also used the Wildflower Fields Designer Paper. I love the colors in this paper pack! I used this Sale-a-bration gift on my second card, too! I have seen a few of cards with this layout lately. I'm not sure what it's called, but after spotting a card on Splitcoast, I had to give it a try!

 All of the Calypso Coral pieces are from one half sheet of cardstock. The piece with the stamped flower bridges the top and bottom together. It's a different and fun fold! I'm working on a video with instructions and measurements and another design with the Honeycomb Happiness stamp set, so be sure to check back tomorrow to learn how to make this card!

Julie, both of your cards are absolutely fabulous! I haven't used much of that DSP, but you've inspired me to pull it out and do something with it.

Love how you used the designer paper on both cards Julie!
