Happy New Year, Happy New Mini Catalogue and Happy SAB!

Happy New Year! I hope you’ve had a wonderful break.

It’s my first day back at work today after the break, and I’m looking forward to sharing new products with you.

As it’s the new year, it’s also Happy New Mini Catalogue and Sale-A-Bration (SAB) time.

SAB is the BEST time of the Stampin’ Up! year as you can earn products for FREE. For every £45 you spend, you can choose an item from the SAB Brochure. There are also Level 2 items where you can earn items when you spend £90. These totals are before P&P.

Here is the first project I made using items from the fabulous new Mini Catalogue, and SAB brochure.

Happy New Mini Catalogue. Project Designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

This project was for my Niece. As she has a Birthday just before Christmas, I wanted to make sure it wasn’t festive and had a more spring-like feel.

I opted for shades of purple, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Purple Posy along with Whisper White.

The background image and sentiment are from the new Label Me Bold Stamp Set. I really like this set and think it will spend quite a lot of time on my crafting desk.

Sale-A-Bration brings us the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set for the background dots, plus the fabulous co-ordinating Small Bloom Punch. I have to admit to being very excited when I saw this punch.

I’ve used the gorgeous new Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon and coloured it using a Dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blend Marker.

Again, this ribbon is going to be used on a lot of my projects over the next few months. It’s really versatile, colours beautifully and is easy to tie too.

A few Rhinestones were the finishing touch to the centre of the flowers.

Make sure you take a look at the new Mini Catalogue and SAB items and take advantage of earning FREE products.

There are also fabulous offers for joining Stampin’ Up! as a Demonstrator during SAB too. I joined myself during SAB, so why take the plunge and join my team.

I’ll be using various products from these new publications at my classes over the coming months, so book yourself a place if you’d like to see the items up close.

Happy crafting
