Calligraphy Essentials and MASSIVE Sale-A-Bration Haul with Pam!

Hello Kre8tors! I’m so excited to announce we had a special guest Kre8tor on today’s video! My good friend and fellow crafter, Pam, shared her amazing HUGE haul with us. She took FULL advantage of the Sale-A-Bration promotion by purchasing her one year Paper Pumpkin Subscription, adding a few more items to her order, and raking in the Stampin’ Rewards to earn a TON of free stuff! Be sure to watch the video below to see all of her amazing goodies, as well as her project using the Calligraphy Essentials stamp set. Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to watch her video!

You too can earn lots of amazing goodies by pairing your Paper Pumpkin pre-paid subscription with the Sale-A-Bration promotion before it ends on March 31st! Here’s how you can do it:

.1. Head over to my online store and click on the Paper Pumpkin link on the left.

.2. Click on the Prepaid Subscriptions link.

.3. Click the subscription you’d like, and add it to your bag.

.4. Depending on the subscription you choose, you might want to add a little more to trigger the Stampin’ Rewards like Pam did. If that’s the case, keep shopping until you hit $250, then click Checkout.

.5. You’ll be notified how many Sale-A-Bration rewards you’ve earned. Click confirm, and then click on the link to claim your items!

.6. Shop for your Sale-A-Bration items by clicking the links, selecting your items, and adding them to your bag.

.7. Once you’ve added all your Sale-A-Bration items, don’t forget to redeem those Stampin’ Rewards you racked up! Click on the Learn More link at the top of the page to learn more about how your Stampin’ Rewards work and to see the hostess exclusive stamp sets you can purchase with your Stampin’ Rewards.

.8. If you are purchasing a hostess exclusive set, simply click Claim Rewards to add it to your cart.

.9. When adding other items, instead of clicking Add To Bag, make sure you click Claim Rewards to use your Stampin’ Rewards. Make sure you use them all up! You can go over a little bit if you find something you can’t live without and you only have a small amount in Stampin’ Rewards left. You can pay the difference.

.10. When you’re ready, simply click Check Out and finish your order.

That’s it! Now all that’s left is to head over to the Paper Pumpkin website, sign up (if you don’t already have an account) and enter in the subscription code that was sent to your email address after you checked out. And of course wait for all your amazing goodies to arrive!

In this order example, we earned 5 FREE Sale-A-Bration Level 1 items AND over $50 in Stampin’ Rewards! That’s a lot of FREE stuff!!! If you want to take advantage of this, be sure you do it before the end of March. Sale-A-Bration items are only offered while supplies last and some are already sold out!

Here’s a bonus for you! There are some amazing items that will coordinate with your Sale-A-Bration items. This promotion starts TODAY and is while supplies last, so make sure you snag what you want quickly so you don’t miss out! Just click on the image above to start shopping!

A Happy Match

Hello Kre8tors and welcome back! Today we are getting FESTIVE with TWO amazing bundles, and I am so excited to share this project with you! I received a comment on my YouTube channel asking me to CASE the back of the Holiday Catalog. I hadn’t even really taken much notice to the projects on the back page until I read that comment. When I took the time to look at that photo, I realized how AMAZING it was! So thank you so much, Diana, for the suggestion!

This card used a LOT of TLC! I didn’t have any Designer Series Paper on hand, so I decided to ATTEMPT to make my own PLAID! Wow, that was tough. After one failed attempt, I decided to try a different method, and so this DIY DSP Plaid background paper was born! I go into a lot of detail in my YouTube video, link below. Be sure to check it out to see how this card came together!

All in all, using the materials I had on hand, I think this CASE’d card came out very well! What do you think? Are you ready to give this card a try with the materials that YOU have on hand? If you do, take a photo and upload it to Social Media, and TAG me! I’m on Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest as @MKre8tions. You can also post a photo to my Facebook page!

One of my favorite things about the Winter Woods Bundle is how unique the framelits are! You are able to create some beautiful dimension and depth with these framelits. Love adding a hint of Wink of Stella to the boughs as well! When pairing the Winter Woods Bundle with the Rooted in Nature Bundle, it does make a Happy Match indeed! These sets work beautifully together! I can’t wait to play more!

Measurements:

Garden Green Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, Scored @ 5-1/2″
Whisper White for DIY DSP Plaid: 3-3/4″ x 5″
Shimmer White: Approximately 4″ x 4″
Whisper White Scraps: Approximately 4″ x 5″
Cherry Cobbler Scraps: Approximately 3″ x 2″

Floating Easel Card Technique with Petal Palette

Boy oh boy, do I have a treat for you! This is my Floating Easel Card made using the Occasions stamp set Petal Palette. I think I found my new favorite paper crafting project! The rich color of the Fresh Fig cardstock paired with the bling of the Gold Glimmer Paper and the soft watercoloring of the flowers with Aqua Painters is just SCRUMPTIOUS! What do you think?

My coordinating video tutorial is very different from my normal videos. I don’t show you any stamping (except the sentiment) or cutting. I do explain how to make the floating easel mechanism, and what pieces I used from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies to cut out different cardstock embellishments.

I am just completely entranced by this card, and I hope you are too! Check out my video tutorial for all the details on this beautiful card! Grab all the supplies you need to make this wonderful project by clicking on the pictures below. Don’t forget! During Sale-A-Bration (now through March 31) you can get FREE products just for shopping! Visit my store for more details, or get in touch with me!

Measurements:

Fresh Fig Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″, score @ 5-1/2″ & cut a 1/2″ frame from card front
Fresh Fig Frames: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, cut a 1/2″ frame (make 2)
Whisper White Inside Mat: 4″ x 5-1/4″
