Welcome to the Alaska Achievers Blog Hop!  You’ll see top demonstrators at Stampin’ Up! sharing creative projects to inspire you from the Sale-a-Bration and Occasions catalog!

Stampin' up!, Lots of Lavender, Special Celebrations, Special fold, StampinBJ.com

I am going to treat you to double the inspiration by showcasing Occasions & Sale-a-Bration stamp sets along with a special fold technique showcasing the retiring In Colors.  That might be triple the inspiration!  A great bonus for you!

For this card, I am featuring the Peekaboo Peach retiring In Color with the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper (which also will retire).  The Sale-a-Bration stamp set I used is the Lots of Lavender and the greeting comes from the Special Celebration stamp set.

This really is a super easy special fold card.

Cutting and scoring measurements;

  • Card base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • Band is 1 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • Score both at 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″

Check out this quick video for more tips;

 

Here are the retiring 2016-2018 In Colors.  I very strongly encourage you to stock up on your favs right now for 2 reasons;  Get them before they are gone!  (when the retiring list comes out everything goes quickly!)  Secondly, get them while you can double dip and get Sale-a-Bration benefits too!!

Order;

  • Cardstock
  • Ink refills
  • Markers
  • Ribbon
