January Scrapbook Sunday Blog Hop

Good Morning, Stampers!


We are back this month with a fun color challenge
for our scrapbook pages using coral, green and black.


Hmmmm....this color challenge just happens 
to match the Sweet Soiree Memories and More
card pack from the Sale-A-Bration brochure - 
I wonder if it was planned that way??!! 

So, of course, I had to feature the them and
the hardest part is deciding which cards to use!

I also added the Amazing You stamp set and
coordinating Celebrate You thinlit dies both
of which are included in the Sale-A-Bration brochure.
The best part of all is that all (3) of these products
are available FREE with a qualifying order!


Here's a close-up of the flowers. To get the 3D
look, I stamped (2) flowers and adhered them together
with Stampin' Dimensionals for added texture.

Ink: Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Archival Basic Black
Paper: Old Olive, Whisper White, Basic Black, Calypso Coral

gold accents added. I love every pattern!!
