About Me

Hello! My name is Sarah Fleming, and I'm a paper addict living in central Texas. I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit. If you're in the USA, I'd love to be your demonstrator!

You Amaze Me, Alaska

Good afternoon from America!

I’m taking part in a very special blog hop today with the Aim for Alaska training group. This is a training put on by Kylie Bertucci to help us grow our businesses (Aim for Alaska means that we are trying to earn the fabulous Stampin’ Up! incentive trip for this year, which is an Alaskan cruise). I’ve learned so much about how to grow and run a successful business from top demonstrators all over the world, and I’m so grateful for this wonderful group!

The theme for our blog hop is Inspired by Alaska. When I think of Alaska, I think glaciers, mountains, reindeer, trees, and plaid, LOL.

Thank you, Jensen.

Tips for CASEing my card:

*My card base is Night of Navy, 4.25″ x 11″, scored at 5.5″.

*I cut a 4″-wide strip of the Carried Away designer series paper that is a Sale-A-Bration freebie. This paper coordinates perfectly with the Lift Me Up bundle and is only available free with a $50 purchase until the end of March.  After I cut this strip of paper, I used my Paper Snips to cut off everything above the mountains. I did cut around one tiny hot air balloon and cloud but cut off everything else above the mountains. I just love how this paper gives a full scene of nature and wildlife in such a small space.

*After I glued down the paper to the card base, I cut the piece of Whisper White paper. I wanted the paper 3/4″ wide on the right side and 1/2″ tall on top. I probably did it the hard way, so the easy way would be to cut a piece that is 4.25″ x 5.5″, then use the ruler on your Trimmer to cut across the top (leaving 1/2″ above the cut) 3.75″ (leave 3/4″ on the right edge), then turn your paper and cut all the way to the bottom edge. I am making it sound more difficult than it is. Pop the piece of white up on Dimensionals.

*I stamped the tree from the Peaceful Pines stamp set in Emerald Envy ink on Emerald Envy cardstock, then cut it out with the Perfect Pines framelits. That is on Dimensionals.

*The banner is from the Banners for You bundle. I stamped in Emerald Envy and Night of Navy, then cut the banner out with the matching framelit. Since I was adding this right on top of the tree and the white border, I used my glue for most of the banner but did put a Dimensional under the left banner flap so everything is even.

*The bow is Emerald Envy Solid Baker’s Twine.

*The extra clouds are stamped/die cut using the Lift Me Up bundle.

*To finish off the card, I added Wink of Stella (clear) to all of the mountain peaks and the clouds. I love the frost you can get from this glitter pen!

*Inside. This sentiment is also from the Banners for You bundle, but it is a curved stamp, meant to fit on one of the curvy banners. So I just straightened it out when I put it on the clear block. That’s one of my favorite things about photopolymer stamps!

I hope you like my card. Make sure to continue hopping around the world on this fabulous Aim for Alaska blog hop. Right now you’re at Sarah Fleming’s blog, so just keep clicking down the list until you hop all the way back to me.

Sarah, your card certainly does present how much there is to see in the big spaces in Alaska. And that pop of green in the foreground tops your card off brilliantly! Love it.

Sarah this reminds me of the many still pictures of snow covered mountains – we don’t get snow where I live in Australia but would love to see it one day – love your card xx
