http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Hr8eRM9dMNI/U_h0wRhRUMI/AAAAAAAAK-Y/kuDjEwsb-Go/s1600/ShopNow_Button.png
Sale-a-bration finishes at midnight tonight. You can shop online and secure one of the fantastic free Sale-a-bration sets available by placing an order of $90.

Here's a last look at the Lotus Blossom set available as a Sale-a-bration stamp set.

This set is so easy to use - but creates the most effective stamped images.
I whipped up these quick birthday cards on the weekend.  Here I've teamed the Lotus Blossom stamp set with the sentiment from the Flower Patch stamp set (134207).
I could have easily added some bling - or stepped the card up a bit - but instead I decided to keep it very simple.  The added bonus is I know have a stash of birthday cards ready to go.

Some news to sad news to share :(  Unfortunately both Blendabilities Markers and My Digital Studio Software/Downloads are being discontinued. You can no longer purchase Blendabilities due to quality control issues with some of the markers.  My Digital Studio however will be available still until the 31st May 2015.

Happy news is that as the Blendablities were part of the Sale-a-bration offering Stampin' Up! now have more items available that you can earn as your free products!!:

Stamp Set: For Peeps' Sake stamp set (wood 137179, clear 138557)

Big Shot Embossing & Die Cutting Machine (113439)
Framelits: Deco Labels Collection
Punches: Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border (119275),  1 3/4" Circle (119850), 2" Circle (133782)

For Peeps' Sake Check Out This Cute Carriage!

http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
SUO Challenge #118 is to make a project with Easter as the theme.  So here is the idea I have been working on - Easter table decorations!  We always enjoy having a family lunch on Easter Sunday so I thought I would make gorgeous place markers for each person. 
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
I've started with my eldest daughter Caitlin who loves pink - so this has been incorporated into her carriage.  I'm planning on using each person's favourite colour in their carriage.  Lottie loves purple, Tom will get red, and Cameron blue.  Hopefully I can get some more pictures on my blog when I get all of the carriages together.
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
Of course each carriage has to have some passengers - so there are three chocolates travelling inside. I used the 3/4" circle punch (119873) to give each a "seat".
http://www3.stampinup.com/ECWeb/default.aspx?dbwsdemoid=4011806
I've punched some "carriage links" out of the scalloped tag topper punch (133324) and added a bit of silver 1/8" ribbon (132137).  If I get a chance I might make an engine to pull the carriages and link them all up!

Other elements I have used to create this carriage include:
For Peeps' Sake stamp set (wood 137179, clear 138557)
Big Shot Embossing & Die Cutting Machine (113439)
Apothecary Accents framelits (127003), Bitty Banners framelits (129267)
Fancy Fan embossing folder (127751)
Simply Scored Scoring Tool (122334)
1" circle punch (119868)
1 3/8" circle punch (119860)
Many Marvellous Markers (131264)
Card stock colours of choice.
Sticky Strip (104294) - a really strong adhesive is required to hold the carriage together and sticky strip is great for holding heavy accessories or structural items.
Stampin' Dimensionals (104430),  Sponge Daubers (133773), Stamping Sponges (101610), Dazzling Details (124117).

I hope you have enjoyed seeing this project.  It has been fun making something special for each family member.  Holidays are so commercialised now so it has been good to focus on the people I love - with something made with lots of love.

Happy crafting!
