Celebrate You and Wood Words Thank You Gift



Welcome to the Anything But A Card Blog Hop. And a special welcome to any visitors coming from Quebec, Canada, via fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator, Emilie Poncelet's blog! Today I am hopping with several Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the United States, Canada, United Kingdom and Australia! Welcome one and all.

As my regular visitors already know, my new year's resolution is to increase crafting inspiration for my virtual crafting friends. Hard to believe that my first blog hop was just a month ago. Let's get started.


Like last month, this hop features free, exclusive products from the 2018 Sale-A-Bration catalog that can be earned with qualifying purchases.  The new twist is to create anything, but NOT a card. I decided to pair the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies with the Wood Words stamp set and Wood Crate Framelits Dies found in the Annual Catalog on page 159 (and currently a bundle price) to create this cute thank you gift. I LUV the rustic look of the crate using the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper. Don't you?


In my second photo, I snuck (is this even a word?) in a cute tall box with a Celebrate banner made with the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies - LUV the newest in-color Lemon Lime Twist paired with the retiring in-color Dapper Denim. The tall box is made with the Popcorn Box Thinlits Dies also found in the Annual Catalog on page 212. Can you believe this is the first time I have made anything with this die set?

Thank you for visiting with me today! Make sure you keep hopping along to see all the other Sale-A-Bration projects! Click on the "Next" button below to visit Sue Kremer's blog. She is from Minnesota, USA.

Stamp On!!

MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SALE-A-BRATION:  In case you are new to Stampin' Up!, Sale-A-Bration is held once a year for the first three months (this year it runs from January 3 through March 31. You earn exclusive free Stampin' Up! products with every qualifying purchase ($50/U.S.). You also earn rewards for hosting a workshop or becoming a Stampin' Up! demonstrator during Sale-A-Bration. It would be my pleasure to show you how to earn the free products or join my team.

This year Stampin' Up! added a new level of rewards and for the first time for a qualifying purchase of $100 the Celebrate You Thinlits dies featured in the Sale-A-Bration brochure will carry over into the annual catalog. During Sale-A-Bration, these dies coordinate with the Amazing You stamp set; however, when Sale-A-Bration is over, while the dies will still be available in the annual catalog, it will NOT be bundled with a stamp set.
