Sale-A-Bration Ends Soon,

Well, not the best picture of this card, but the flower image in the scallop circle is from the Punch Bunch stamp set in the soon-to-expire Sale-A-Bration catalog on March 31.  Just think, for every $50 spent, you get a great value for the product you are purchasing, PLUS you get a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  That's 1 FREE item for $50 purchase, 2 FREE items for $100 purchase and so on!  All these free stamp sets and accessories being offered have an average value of approximately $11 to $15 each.  What a great deal, don't you think?

If you've been procrastinating about making a purchase, now is the time.  It's not too late!  Give me a call at (309) 221-0978 or e-mail  @ tmustain@centurytel.net.

Happy Stamping,

Scrapbooking Fun

     The last two weekends, I've had the privilege of being able to scrapbook some old pictures from my childhood.  I've been somewhat reluctant to use all Stampin' Up! product with scrapbook pages, as I was trying to use up old papers I had, plus I hated to waste my 'good' papers' with trial and error on scrapbook pages.  Well, now I have quite a bit of retired paper, so I've decided to start using as much Stampin' Up! product as I can.  This page shows some old post cards I pulled from an old magnetic photo album.  (Oh, the horrible things that stuff does to your pictures!!!)
     I wanted to be able to view the back side of the postcards, so I took a small strip of cardstock, folded it in half lengthwise and adhered the back side to my page.  The front of the postcard is adhered just under the front side of the folded cardstock and can now be flipped open like a page to see the back of the card.  I combined old and new product, using some retired colors and new stamps and punches.  The flowers may not match the theme of baseball on the postcards, but I thought they added a nice touch to the page.  I really like the two border punches put together, as well.
     I'll get another opportunity to scrapbook for a day in a couple of weeks.  I've been asked to be a vendor at another local scrapbook crop on March 19.  Call me at (309) 221-0978 for more details.  Time is 9 a.m. to midnight, so plenty of time to get some work done!
     Remember, you still have time to take advantage of Sale-A-Bration!  For every $50 product purchased from any current catalog, you may order one FREE item the the SAB catalog.  These items range in value from approximately $9.95 to $15.95, so hurry and get in on these great deals!

Happy Stamping,
