I pulled out my favourite from Sale-A-Bration again, the Happy Birthday To You stamp set, to create this subtle birthday card using the Emboss Resist Technique with a pretty watercolour wash of Highland Heather and Seaside Spray ink.  Splashing ink around for this card was just much fun!

Today is the day to share your heartfelt appreciation to those you care about most.  One of the best ways to do that is to send or give something handmade or handwritten from the heart.

I’m excited to announce the launch of Your Creative Connection today; a bi-monthly creative showcase which will come to you on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month.  Your Creative Connection came together from a group of eight global friends wanting to give you a worldwide connection to creativity.  We hope to inspire you to connect with us as we share papercraft ideas using Stampin’ Up! products.

Sale-A-Bration is well underway and many, many free stamping products have already been shipped.  My favourite?  It has to be the Happy Birthday To You stamp set - it's elegant and perfect for both birthdays and special occasions.  And now it's even more versatile with the newly-released coordinating Birthday Dies - woohoo!  These dies are part of the Coordination Product Release and are only available until the end of March or while supplies last.

Have you seen the beautiful Parisian Blossoms Suite on page 15 of the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue?  This coordinating set of products are soft and elegant with detailed floral images that are perfect for creating projects for weddings, anniversaries, friendships, and more.  I used this product suite to create a handmade wedding card in some of my favourite colours...

I threw the whole From My Heart Suite at this Valentine project.  Because the suite coordinates so beautifully, it was easy to pull it all together.

Have you seen the cute heart-shaped baking tins in the From My Heart Suite on page 9 of the new January-June 2020 Mini Catalogue?  Add a baked treat or some yummy sweets inside and use them just as they are, or decorate the tins for a special occasion.  These were created to give to everyone who came along to the Mini Catalogue Launch Party this month...

Last Friday, I held the Mini Catalogue Launch Party, which was a lot of fun and a great way to start the year!  We had games, prizes and lots of creating.  Look what we got up to...
