This post will remain at the top of my blog until the end of SAB, please scroll down for new crafty posts and inspiration!


Well it's here! Sale-A-Bration 2015! My favourite time of the Stampin' Up! Year! This years offering has just blown me away (I probably said that last year but its even better this year!) The brochure is great, with no more confusing fold out bits and I love the offering!  It has certainly kickstarted my crafting after the festive period.
Click on the picture above to see the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) brochure.

So here is the full scoop on SAB 2015!
For EVERY, yes EVERY £45 you spend you get to choose a free exclusive item from the SAB brochure above. There are lots of items ranging from stamp sets to buttons and ribbons and Project Life. Also there are sets of Blendabilities available for FREE too with your £45.
 Host a Party with me. For all my lovely hostesses who are booked in you will receive and extra £20 in Hostess spends when your party total hits £200 or more.

Something Lacy Technique Projects

Happy Sunday to you all! Today I am excited to share with you the final project from my Heat Embossing Technique class that I ran yesterday.  I have previously shared the other projects we made but I have added them at the end of this post in case you missed them

For this project we created a vellum treat bag using the thinlits die and then we embossed the bag in white emboss powder using Versamark. 
I broke into my Your Perfect Day stamp set to make this into a wedding project, either a card or a gift wallet for the happy couple.
 I went for a colour combo of Smoky Slate and Blushing Bride which reminds me of my bedroom at home in the 80’s as it was decorated in shades of pale grey and pale pink. 
 The inside image is stamped in Smoky Slate and then coloured in with Blushing Bride using the Blender Pens. On the front I added a large bow which my ladies weren’t too happy with me about as all the projects had bows on them! 
 So here are the other 2 projects we made.
If you would like to come to one of my Technique classes then my next one is Saturday 21st March at 2pm when we will be using the Sheltering Tree stamp set.

Team Welcome Pack

Hello there! Little lie in today here at Chez Kettlewell so I am just doing my blog following a lazy morning! Yesterday one of my new team members, Kate, came round for a little bit of training after joining Stampin Up a few days ago. I always like to make a welcome pack for my brand new recruits and here is Kate’s. I used the Painted Blooms papers which are so lovely I had to take a sharp intake of breath before I cut into them! 
I used 2 of the pieces with the large pattern which means the project doesn’t need much more adding to it to look effective.  Here is what I include in the pack. A deep box file for paperwork, a decorated journal for training notes, a colour chart, a handmade card and a short guide to being a demonstrator and a member or our team - Julie’s Jems.
 The journal is one of our large Kraft Journals and they are so easy to decorate with some patterned paper and a little ribbon. 
 The card used more of the paper and some Blackberry Bliss ribbon and the Hello You thinlits.
 Welcome to the team Kate, I know you are going to enjoy your Stampin Up journey with us.

If you have been pondering joining or simply have some questions then I am planning an Opportunity Evening at my home on Thursday 26th March from 7pm. Come along for a play in my craft den and to find out about becoming a demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! in an informal setting.
