Alaska Achievers Blog Hop - Love!

Hello and welcome to another Alaska Achievers Blog Hop. We continue our theme of focusing on both the Occasions Catalogue and the Sale A Bration items this month. 

Products from both of these catalogues are very versatile and, like all Stampin' Up! products, they coordinate so well together. 

This month being February, which includes Valentines Day, I am focusing on using the gorgeous "Sure Do Love You" bundle. I've done a few workshops on this and am constantly told - "I wasn't sure about that Designer Series Paper, but now that I've seen it, I have to have some". So make sure you get some before the catalogue finishes in June. The paper is gorgeous and versatile and it lends itself to many different projects because it has both the foil embossed side and a patterned side. 💖

I have a simple card for you today and it uses products from both the Occasions Catalogue and the Sale-A-Bration flyer.
* Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.
 * Celebrate You Thinlit Dies from the first release of 2018 Sale-A-Bration.
* Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder  from the  second release 2018 Sale-A-Bration items. 

The papers and Thinlits speak for themselves, but I should point out that I have used the back side of the Embossing folder to get a different pattern - one that I felt complimented the card design more than the basket weave pattern. I love the different fonts in the Thinlits, and they cut out easily with just one run through the Big Shot. 
You can adhere some Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to the card stock prior to cutting and then it is super easy to attach the words to  your card by simply peeling off the backing. I love anything that saves me doing fussy gluing.

I'm really loving the Painted With Love Specialty Designer Series Papers with the rich foil embossed designs on one side and the complimenting patterned designs on the reverse. Creating cards, boxes and other items are quick and easy. 

If you would like to purchase any of the products you may do that through my on-line store.
As a special February offer I have a free card tutorial for any orders placed that include the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Papers. 
A full list of the products I used in the card is below the list of demonstrators participating in the blog hop.

Now it is time to continue the hop onto the next awesome project. Enjoy the inspiration and until next time...

Stay Crafty!
