Hello and welcome to the first SUBA hop of 2019 where we are delighted to share some of our favourite Salebration products with you.  You may be starting the hop with me or have arrived from Sandra’s blog either way I’m excited to have you join us !

We all met on course run by the Simply Unique Business Angels headed up by the fabulous Pip Todman and Louise Sims.  I can highly recommend them and you can find out more about them here.

What is Saleabration?

As the Occasions Spring Summer catalogue launches, Stampin’ Up! also gives a little extra back to our customers.  For qualifying orders of £45 or more our customers can pick a free Saleabration item and you can pick one for every £45 you spend.

Even more exciting is that if you join my team between now and the end of March your starter kit costs only £99 and you get £170 worth of products of your choice from any of the catalogues.  You can pick every single item that goes into your starter kit. That is an extra £40 of free product in your starter kit – what’s not to love about that?

Butterfly inspiration

I absolutely love the Gingham Gala product suite in the new Spring Summer catalogue and what make it even better is that their are two co-ordinating free Saleabration items.  There is Botanical Butterfly designer series paper and the Organdy Ribbon combo pack as pictured below.  If you want to see the other Saleabration products you could earn for free then click hereFree saleabration items on qualifying orders over £45

Just a little note

I’ve created these cute note cards which could fit nearly ever occasion and they use the same colour combination as the Gingham Gala suite. Which one is your favourite?

Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper

Then I’ve used one of our clear acetate boxes which are perfect to hold this set of notecards.  I’ve used the Botanical Butterfly DSP to create a pretty cover so it looks more like a present !

The back layer is designer series paper and the butterfly centerpiece is hand cut from one of the other sheets of DSP.  I shaded the Whisper White flax ribbon and the reverse side of the pearlized doilie using Stampin’ sponges and ink pads.  I’ve taken a close up picture so you can see this in a little more detail.

Finally I added an embossed “little note” sentiment and added some Gingham Gala adhesive sequins to add a little sparkle. I made some more cards using these papers on this hop last month you can see them here
