Sale-a-Bration Wrap Up - My Two Favorite FREE Sets

As you have probably seen from Jan 4th until now, I've particularly enjoyed these two Sale-a-Bration sets.  I've made a lot of things with them!
As we wind down the final days of Sale-a-Bration 2017, I thought I would break out my favorite projects and share again. 
Tasty Trucks and Hey, Chick are both FREE stamp sets with a $50 purchase until March 31st.
 
 
This card is made with the soon to retire In Color, Watermelon Wonder. See the note below about the retiring colors.

 
This little food truck is so much fun! He can be a cupcake truck, breakfast truck, taco truck, hot dog truck and many other combinations.

 
These crazy chickens have lots of personality and would make all kinds of great cards for practically any occasion. 
This ensemble is made with the retiring In Color called Delightful Dijon. 
This color along with the colors listed below will be retiring in May as we make room for the new In Colors.  If you have ink pads, but not the refill, or the cardstock but not the ink pad or any bits and pieces that you would like to add the entire color collection to, I suggest you get it now, way before the discontinued list is out, as they will be only while supplies last and they go FAST!
 
The retired list will be posted April 10th.

Beautiful You Purse and Cards

This is it - officially the last week of Sale-a-Bration 2017.  I hate to see it come to an end, it is always such a happy time to get something free with an order, right?  View the newest Sale-a-Bration items HERE
 

Today's project was a display I made for Inking Idaho on the Road showcasing the Beautiful You stamp set and the Urban Underground Designer Series Paper.
Thank you to Diana Gibson for the wonderful inspiration on the cards.
This purse fits full size 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 cards and envelopes, but the cards shown here are note card size and I made the envelopes (not shown) with the Envelope Punch Board and DSP.
 

The pattern for this purse can be found in my 12 Days of Christmas 2010 edition tutorial found on the Tutorial Page of this blog or the right hand side bar.


This is also the last week to sign up to be a part of my Inking Everything team and get two FREE stamp sets of your choice.

Cool Treats Tiny Purses - Updated to Add Measurements

I made a little gift for all of my out of town team visiting for Inking Idaho on the Road and of course I had to break out my favorite Cool Treats Bundle! 
Guess What? 
The Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper is now one of the FREE product choices for the last week of Sale-a-Bration.  There are six additional choices for this week too.
 
To get them FREE, please use the ordering numbers in this chart, not the order numbers in the catalog.
Check them out right HERE.
 
They hold 3 x 3 cards and envelopes and a little pack of M&M's.

Edited to add project dimensions 
It is basically a box in a bag, just smaller for 3 x 3 cards.
The cardstock box, which is the bottom, is cardstock cut to 4-1/4" x 3" and scored on all four sides at 1/2".
Once the box is made wrap the Designer Series Paper around the outside, level with the bottom. 
DSP is 3-1/4" x 11. (3-1/4" indicates how tall I wanted it and can be adjusted to any height) The handles are 3/8" x 6". 
I wrapped a 1/2" strip around the outside of the bottom for decoration - it serves no purpose structurally.

 
I glued two ice cream cones together and added Sprinkles Embellishments with the Fine Tip Glue.

 
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Peakaboo Peach, Pear Pizzazz, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Watermelon Wonder, Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series paper
Stamp Set:  Cool Treats
Accessories:  Frozen Treats Framelits Dies, Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape, Sprinkles Embellishments

Inking Idaho on the Road Boise ID Meet & Greet

Friday afternoon I hosted a meet and greet at my home for our local team to meet our out of team members and have a chance to connect before the excitement and frenzy of Friday night came.  I thought if everyone on my list comes I would have a maximum of 40 people, but that never happens, right?  Not everyone always shows up.
Let me show you a few pictures and you tell me if you can take a guess at how many were here.











 If you guessed 46, you were right!  How does that even happen? 
It was so fun to watch my team visit and connect, it was SO warm in here with all these happy bodies, super crowded but no one seemed to care, there was more food than we could possible eat and I still have drinks for days!

This is just one portion of one counter, I wish I had a picture of my whole kitchen...it was pretty impressive!


Thank you Marcy Kowallis for managing my kitchen, directing traffic and keeping it all under control.  I can honestly say I couldn't have done it without you and I am grateful for your friendship. 
I can stamp, I can teach, I can talk in front of people but hostessing and food freaks me out!  I planned this entire event with no problem whatsoever, but lost many a night's sleep over this one thing. We all have our weaknesses, don't judge. *Ü*
