The Sky is the LimitI love this old fashioned biplane soaring off into the blue skies. If you love this plane too, grab it quick. You can get it free as a Sale-a-Bration reward, but it’s one of a few with an extra limited time availability through February 15th, 2016.

Sale-a-Bration is an annual promotion. For each and every $50 (US) you spend at Stampin’ Up! you select a free item from the Sale-a-Bration brochure.

I made a variation of the project I posted earlier here. It’s made the same way, but I switched out the colors and Designer Series Paper and used the Lots of Labels Framelits. There are few other changes. Which one do you like better?

Frequent Shopper Points

I just added a Frequent Shopper Rewards Program for my online customers. I have always offered $5 coupons for larger orders at workshops, but I wasn’t sure how to make that happen for online orders. This reward is from me personally, and not from Stampin’ Up!®. I cannot give a discount for online orders. But I looked around at how a few other demonstrators did it and came up with a plan that works for me. Find out more here or click the tab above.

20160113_160859_resizedThis quick card makes a lovely Valentine for the man in your life. It is a variation on one of the cards in the Watercolor Wishes kit.

Tip: Be sure to let the ink dry on the wooden embellishment. I set my aside to dry, but only for a few minutes. I got a little smudge I needed to fix up.
