SAB Pretty Petites and matching punch

First things first, the WEATHER (I am British, after all!). I took a concerned call last night from the man in charge of the hall we’re using for Saturday’s event, asking me if I was going to cancel. “Why?” I naively asked. Turns out everyone else who has booked the hall this week has cancelled because we’re expecting more snow. I’ve just checked the forecast and, while snow IS forecast for Friday afternoon, it will turn to rain and temperatures will rise on Saturday. So, as far as I’m concerned, both of my Saturday events are ON. Obviously, only travel if it’s safe to do so, as I know some of you have quite a way to come.

Both events? I have a team meeting in the morning – and if you want more info about being a demonstrator, this is the perfect event to attend, not least because it’s FREE and you’ll have the opportunity to talk to lots of other demonstrators about their way of doing things. Because we all do it differently. There will also be demonstrations, a Make & Take and, of course, cake.  But let me know ASAP if you want to come so I can ensure there are enough M&Ts.

And in the afternoon I have my Double Launch Party, to celebrate the arrival of Sale-a-Bration and the impending Spring/Summer catalogue. This event is now fully booked but I’ll be showing the projects afterwards.

Over to today’s project, which I totally CASEd from an Australian demonstrator called Tricia after seeing it on Pinterest. It’s a quick and easy way to showcase several SAB items available this year; the Pretty Petites stamp set, the Petite Curly Label punch (which will be available after Sale-a-Bration, too) and the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper.

Cardstock: Pool Party, Whisper White, Island Indigo
Paper: Sycamore Street (SAB)
Ink: Pool Party, Island Indigo
Accessories: Petite Curly Label punch (SAB), Itty Bitty Punch pack, Basic Rhinestones, Corner Rounder
