Bonne Année & SAB!

Wishing you a (very belated) happy new year!  In France it is more popular to send New Year's cards (than Christmas cards) and New Year's wishes can arrive up until the end of January - that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!  Even though I have just got in by the skin of my teeth!

Stampin' Up! have a fab promotion at the moment - Sale-a-bration (otherwise known as SAB) has returned!  This year it runs from 24 January until 31 March.  For every £45 you spend in one order you can choose from one of 4 stamp sets or a gorgeous pack of exclusive Designer paper absolutely FREE!

This card is one of the make and takes from a workshop I held last week:

Card/Paper: Very Vanilla, Poppy Parade; Stamps: Thank You Kindly, Fresh Vintage (SAB); Ink: Poppy Parade; Tools/Accessories: Stampin Dimensionals, Self-Adhesive Pearls

This is the perfect card for the new crafter - very easy to make but looks great!

I have also made another version which takes the card to the next level and the materials for this card would get you 2 free SAB products:

Card/Paper: SU Whisper White, SU Poppy Parade, SU Pool Party; Stamps: SU Thank You Kindly, SU Fresh Vintage (SAB); Ink: Versamark, SU Poppy Parade, SU 2011-13 In Color markers (Lucky Limeade, Pool Party & Calypso Coral used); Tools/Accessories: Stampin Dimensionals, Self-Adhesive Pearls, SU Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch, Clear embossing powder, Heat gun

Did you notice the paper in the background - that is one of the papers from the SAB promotion - Everyday Enchantment - isn't it sumptuous?  It also co-ordinates with the SAB Fresh Vintage stamp set and it inspired me with the colours in the second card.  In fact if you were to buy all the products needed to make this card - you would get both the stamp set and the papers for free!  How great is that?!

Interested?  Why not contact me to find out more?!  I'd love to hear from you!

A la prochaine!  Amitiés!



  1. Very pretty cards thanks for sharing!!!

  2. This is a stunning design Nicole and I like the way you've created two very different cards from it. Thank you for your comment on my blog . I don't have any formula for making envelopes - they're just made in a muddle like the rest of my projects! Vicky x


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message - it is really appreciated Nx
