ESAD Last Chance Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog and thank you for visiting, If you are hopping along from Kelly's Blog that's great or if you have just landed here please hop along to see more great Sale-A-Bration goodies featured in our hop.

The Sale-A-Bration item I have chosen to feature is the Carried Away Designer Series Paper FREE with a $90 AU spend but only till 31st March 2017 so don't delay.

I used it to make 12 different cards with enough left over to make another 24 exactly the same and still some extra pieces for a scrapbook page I have planned. I'm impressed 36 cards and leftovers from one pack of DSP that's great value and can be used with any of our DSP packs.

I followed Brandi's video from the Stampin' Up! YouTube channel but tweaked the measurements for Australian size cards.

I didn't do the tin Brandi did but I do love that idea as well.

For our Aussie crafters working with our cardstock sizes this is what I did.
My Bases were cut A4 exactly in half for both style of card type.
The DSP was cut to 10x14.2cm
The little DSP strips were 1.8x10cm the banner was hand cut.
the Whisper White main piece 7x8.5  stamped in both Landscape and Portrait depending on which base it was going on.
The inner Whisper White Panel is 9x13.5cm
All cards have a stamped matching envelope making this s great gift giving option as well.

One must have a list of goodies so here it is - I have popped the Lift Me up Bundle in wood on the list as just by purchasing that one item you are eligible for the FREE DSP
Thank you for visiting please hop along to Rachael's Blog to see what beauties she has to show you. Until next time have a beautiful crafty day.
