ICS Blog Hop: Amazing You

 Well hello everyone! And thank you for visiting me on today's Blog Hop. Which just so happens to be on the FIRST day of SALE-A-BRATION!

If Stampin' Up! is relatively new to you, you may be wondering what the heck kind of cheesy name that is. It's the name Stampin' Up! gives to their big annual sale where if you spend $60, you get a free item from a catalog of exclusive Sale-a-Bration offerings. These items are available while supplies last until the end of March and they cannot be purchased - only earned with a $60 purchase. And new this year - there are a couple of big-ticket items that are earned with a $120 purchase! (and yes, they are totally worth it!!).

For this month's Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hop, we wanted to show you some ways that you could get to $60 and get a free item! Woohoo! So get your shopping list ready and visit a few of my friends today for some awesome ideas!!

The Amazing You stamp set is my Number One Top Favorite stamp set in the Sale-a-Bration catalog. Why, you may ask? Well, for one reason, I really like the fonts. I like that you can use the words to make a few different sentiments. Let's celebrate you. You are simply amazing to me. Celebrate amazing you. Let's celebrate. Amazing you. So many options! Plus I love the wild rose. It brings back memories of my Quadra Island days :) But the main reason why I love this stamp set is that there is a set of THINLITS that coordinates with it. It has the three words celebrate, amazing, and you - in the same fonts as in the stamp set. What a great way to coordinate stamping and paper! Imagine that "amazing" in gold glimmer paper?! I looove it. Totally my top two favorite items in Sale-a-Bration. Here they are, for your enjoyment!!

Soooo, I thought that I'd give you a couple of options for ways that you could earn this stamp set! It is free with a $60 purchase (FYI, the thinlits are free with a $120 purchase). We all have different supplies, so one option may appeal better to meet the gaps in your supplies!

OPTION 1: (basics - cardstock, ink, embellishments) Total: $64.50 CAD

OPTION 2: (for those who may have all the colors already!) Total: $62 CAD

Now, I'll be honest. I did use a couple of inks that were not in the marker set I indicated above. And I'll put them in my supply list below. But really, the colors are flexible. You can use what you have to create a new and different look that's all your own!

Thanks for stopping by today - I hope you enjoyed my card, and my recipes for Sale-a-Bration success! Now, go see Deb Naylor to see what she's cooked up for us!

Happy Stamping!
