Good morning everyone!
I thought it was about time I blogged again….  So what better time than the first day that Sale-A-Bration and the Occasions Catalogue open!  If you haven’t been through Sale-A-Bration (SAB) before, it’s a fantastic time of year in “Stampin’ Up! world”.  This year it’s even better, because the amount you need to spend to qualify for free goodies has dropped!  Yes, it’s LESS than previously – was $120 in New Zealand, and now is just $110.  How awesome is that?  So if you have your eye on new goodies from the Occasions catalogue, the main catalogue, or any other offers we have running currently (“Best of” sets, envelope punch board, Thinlit card dies, MDS weekly new downloads, etc), they all count towards earning free stuff from the SAB brochure!

To view both the SAB and Occasions catalogue files online, you can go ahead and click on the pics on my sidebar.  That will take you to the catalogues area of my Stampin’ Up! website, so as long as Stampin’ Up! uploads them between my writing this and your reading it, you should be able to see them there!  Or click here to see them!

Now to the eye candy…  Here’s one of the first things I’ve made after getting my Occasions catalogue pre-order.  I participate in team swaps, so I made a bunch of these cute boxes to swap with my demo friends.  Each box contains a little packet of shortbread – yum!  I took a few photos, here’s one showing all the boxes I made (quite a few!).

And another, showing how I was playing with making a pyramid out of them, they look cool as a group don’t you think?

And of course, a close up so you can see the detail!

Here’s what I used:
– Cardstock: Pool Party, Real Red, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
– Ink: Coastal Cabana
– Punches: Decorative Label
– Other: Essentials Paper Piercing pack, Stampin’ Dimensionals
– New items (love them!): Fresh Prints DSP stack, Arrows textured Impressions Embossing folder, Gold Baker’s Twine, Perfect Pennants Stamp set, SAB Banner punch

Want a closer look?  Come to my launch party this Saturday to see this and more!  Please check out the details in my sidebar and click here to contact me to RSVP!
