Sale-A-Bration Thank You.

After much cajolling(sp) I have finally done my first demo. Met up with a group of scrapbookers and card makers in St Leonards on Sea. I can't believe how scared I was, I think my knees were actually knocking at the start, I know I was shaking like a leaf but I had everything prepared and reasonably well rehearsed and afterwards they told me that they enjoyed both the demo and the make and take.

As a thank you I made a small gift for the lady (Jane) who invited me to do the demonstration.


A small decorated gift bag, decorated candle, notebook and card.  All co-ordinating and made using the fantastic Sale-a-bration stamp set ‘Happy Moments’ which is my current FAVOURITE stamp set :O)

(BIG thank you to Blue Jelly who originally designed the giftbag, card and candle) I couldn’t think straight with my nerves and this set was ideal.  The notebook grew from that idea …


Stamps – Happy Moments
Cardstock – Kraft, Pink Passion, Orchid Opulence, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip
Mediums –
Pink Passion, Orchid Opulence, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Basic Black

Embellishments – 1” Rose Red double stitched, & 5/8 Regal rose grosgrain ribbon,  Linen thread, Latte Designer Buttons.
Tools – Eyelet border.


I cannot believe how easy the candles are to do, it only took me 10 minutes to complete! so easy I might even do a tutorial :O)

A few pics of the ladies at work …


I really enjoyed my evening, and cannot believe just how scared I was of a group of ladies, who after all are all together in one place for the same reason as me - the love of crafting.
