On top of the four stamp sets, accessories, papers, ribbon, My Digital Studio digital content CD, and even SAB-exclusive decor element, there is also selected stamps and accessories from the main catalog to choose from! Buttons, fabric, cardstock, Big Shot embossing folder.... there is something for everyone.

{Join} - But that's not all! Sale-a-bration is a great time to sign up to be a demonstrator. During SAB, the starter kit is only $125, plus you can choose from a bonus free paper pack or digital download every month for the rest of the year!

On to today's creative item... today's Stampin' Up Only Challenge is to create a project using your favorite new Occasions mini item. Bordering on... stingy? Here's another Bordering on Romance sample. This set really didn't catch my eye at first, and I'll tell you, I'm having the most fun coloring it. But what's up with stingy? Well, I ran some of the DSP through my printer, which happened to be dirty with crayon. Don't ask how that happened! Anyway, some of the DSP didn't fair too well, but I couldn't bear to toss it. So I threw it into this layout, and you can hardly tell!

The new edgelits make such a nice designed edge to the card. I cut the Baja Breeze and Whisper White pieces separately, but I suppose I could have ran them through together. Embossing is recommended to be done last.

This sample is for our recent sideline meeting. We get together every quarter and share shoebox projects, finished swaps, and business discussions. Sharing stamping with friends is just another perk of being a demo!

Stamps: Bordering on Romance; Paper: Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, Whisper White, Twitterpated DSP; Ink: Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Pear Pizzazz, White Craft, Black Stazon; Accessories: Aquapainter, White baker's twine, Circles #2 die, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Adorning Accents edgelits, Big Shot.

Thanks for stopping by!
