This is an insanely talented team, so you won’t want to miss anyone’s blog. Currently you’re visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.

Stampin' Up! Friendship's Sweetest Thoughts with Hold On to Hope, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper, Sale-A-Bration Shimmer Ribbon Pack (free with $50 purchase), Stampin' Write Markers - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My first card is a card I made for a recent swap with other demonstrators. The background is stamped with a floral flourish from the Hold On to Hope stamp set. The flower cart comes from Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts, and I colored it with Stampin’ Write Markers. I also sponged Lemon-Lime Twist around the flowers before I colored them in.

The sentiment is from Friendship’s Sweetest Thoughts. What a sweet message to send to a friend! The ribbon is FREE Sale-A-Bration ribbon (with $50 order), and the glimmer paper is from the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper. One thing about gluing things down on top of Glimmer Paper — you need to use hot glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen or the Multipurpose Liquid Glue and allow a long drying time. What I did for the swap cards was I put the Glimmer Paper banner underneath the flower cart layer, then attached the ribbon and sentiment on top of the flower cart layer. That takes a lot less time!

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You thinlits (free with $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration), Hello Color, Brusho Crystal Colour, emboss resist handmade celebration card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

My second card is in a completely different direction and a different style. I can never settle on my own personal style, because I love them all. I heat embossed the Hello Color stamp from the Annual Catalog, then sprinkled Brusho Crystals on top of the embossed area, then spritzed. I used Prussian Blue, Brilliant Red, and Yellow. Look how many wonderful colors and shades you can get from a few sprinkles and a quick spritzing! Brusho is one of my very favorite products from the new Occasions Catalog.

Stampin' Up! Celebrate You thinlits (free with $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration), Hello Color, Brusho Crystal Colour, emboss resist handmade celebration card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The “celebrate” sentiment is die cut from Shimmery White cardstock using the Celebrate You thinlits (free with $100 purchase during Sale-A-Bration). After I cut it out, I sprinkled on Prussian Blue and Brilliant Red Brusho crystals, then spritzed the die cut. And this is how it turned out! I love that you never know what you will get with Brusho.

Stampin’ Blends Marker Club: Magical Day

Stampin' Up! Magical Day with Magical Mates framelits and Stampin' Blends alcohol markers - handmade kid cards with magic, dragons, mermaids, unicorns - Stampin' Blends Marker Club - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The January projects for my Stampin’ Blends Marker Club were made with the Magical Day stamp set. This has been, by far, my favorite month for my Blends Club! I just had a blast designing the projects. We’ve been building everyone’s marker collection, 5-6 markers at a time, so we have quite a collection now to incorporate into all the projects. I will be taking sign-ups in March for my next club, which will start in April.

One of a Kind

Stampin' Up! Magical Day scrapbook page, Magical Mates framelits, Sunshine & Rainbows, Rainbow Builder framelits, one of a kind layout, Myths & Magic paper - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good morning! Hopefully I’m still sleeping when this post goes live. If not, hopefully I’m on my way back to bed. Today I get to show you a darling scrapbook layout I made with the Myths & Magic suite of products along with the Sunshine & Rainbows bundle. Myths & Magic is my favorite, and Sunshine & Rainbows is definitely in my top 5. Especially now that I’ve used it.

*The 12″x12″ cardstock is from the Painted With Love cardstock assortment. I was so happy to be able to get Melon Mambo 12″x12″ cardstock again. The cloud paper is from the Myths & Magic paper, and the starry paper is from the Sale-A-Bration paper, Bubbles & Fizz (FREE with a $50 purchase).

*For the clouds along the bottom, I used the Rainbow Builder framelits — there are some big cloud edgelits that come in the set. I used Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper and Whisper White 12″x12″ paper for the clouds. To get the white cloud layer to stick to the bottom glimmer paper layer, I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen. You have to hold it on there and wait a while for it to dry, but it will stay stuck.

*The name/date tabs on the photos are punched with the Circle Tab Punch.

*I’m totally gaga over this fat unicorn! She’s from Magical Day. I stamped her in Rich Razzleberry, then colored her in with Rich Razzleberry (Light and Dark) and Pink Pirouette (Light and Dark) Stampin’ Blends. Plus Bermuda Bay (Light/Dark) Stampin’ Blends on the horn.

*The Rainbow Builder framelits make the rainbow SO easy! There are 7 sizes, and they nest perfectly for a ROYGBIV rainbow. I did my rainbow in Melon Mambo, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Lemon-Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry. I cut all of the pieces, then glued them down to the largest circle from the Layering Circles framelits. I chopped off the excess circle, then cut the half-circle off in the center of the rainbow. When you do it this way, you can move the rainbow around to your heart’s content until you decide exactly where you want it. That’s Wink of Stella all over the rainbow and the unicorn’s hair.

*The title is from Magical Day, and after I cut it out with the die from the framelits, I stamped “you are” again, then snipped it out and popped it up on Mini Dimensionals. I cut a second banner out of Lemon-Lime Twist, snipped it apart in the middle, and glued it to the top and bottom of the back of the title.

*You could easily convert this title section to a card. In fact, I’m sure I will!

The tiny sun is from Sunshine & Rainbows, and the sunburst behind it, stamped in Melon Mambo, is from the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Amazing You (FREE with $50 purchase!). It adds a little texture and a little fun.

Good morning, and Happy New Year! Today I’m showing you another preview of lots of goodies that will be available Wednesday.

The card with the colored flowers is one of the cards from the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack. This is a black and white card, and I colored it in with Stampin’ Blends.

I used only the Light Cherry Cobbler Blends marker (but I’ve linked the Combo pack below if you want to go ahead and get the pair, which I recommend). The ribbon is from the Shimmer Ribbon Combo Pack in the Sale-A-Bration brochure. You’ll be able to get this for FREE with a $50 (pre-tax and -shipping) order during Sale-A-Bration! Sale-A-Bration starts Wednesday and runs through March 31.
