I totally get that I am in the lucky position to be able to make handmade items pretty much whenever I want, as it is my job. But everyone can get involved in sending happy thoughts to people, and there shouldn’t need to be a Special Reason. So, when I was at the Stampin’ Up! Convention last year, I was thrilled that one of the free stamp sets we were all give was ‘Special Reason’ #142902, because it has one of the sentiments is ‘There’s no special reason for this card…’ Just perfect!
This is a great set also because if has some really pretty flowers and leaves that can be layered up, and they work particularly well with the Stylish Stems Framelits, which is how I have used them in today’s project (and you can buy them together as a Bundle, so with 10% off – we love a bargain!). I got the inspiration for this card from the fabulous Dena Rekow over at The Creativity Cave in the USA. My card is quite different from her’s but her’s was the jumping off point.
That is another thing I love about the Stampin’ Up! family, are all really happy to share our ideas with everyone. In a couple of weeks I will be at a Team event where we are encouraged to share our ideas by swapping projects with each other. These are always fabulous events, but I am not sure we have quite worked out that we are adults!!
If you want to buy any of the products I have used, please pop over to my on-line store, and remember that if your order is over £25 you will automatically become a VIP, and get some freebies AND if you remember to use the current Hostess Code, you will get additional Goodies. If your order is over £150, please do not use the hostess code, as you will get your own Hostess rewards (during Sale-a-Bration you can get even more Stampin Rewards – see below).
Sale-a-Bration continues until 31 March, so remember the additional offers that Stampin’ Up! have for either free product (for every £45 excluding P&P), or additional free product if you are looking to become a member of the Stampin’ Up! family and join in with all our fun – I would love it if you would like to join my Team, we have a blast and occasionally remember to act like adults!!
