Welcome to the Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop!

2013 SAB Blog Hop bannerGreetings, stampers, and welcome to the Stampin’ Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop for 2013, celebrating the biggest party of the Stampin’ Up! year!

If you’ve arrived here from the previous stop, Lily’s Ink Pad, you’ve already seen Sarah’s creations using the other digital content disc, Lemonade Stand.  I’m happy to be showing off the last products in the SAB brochure, One Big Sale-A-Bration CD.  Every exclusive SAB product in the brochure is included on this CD and, as you may already know, those digital images can be used in Stampin’ Up!’s own My Digital Studio as well as in any program that allows you to insert graphics.  Pretty cool, especially since this CD is free, free, free!  (And if you’re a subscriber to my newsletter, you know how you can win one of these discs for yourself!)

My first project is a pretty traditional page — you’ll recognize the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper on this 11″ x 8½” page.  It shows a book signing event at our Borders book store (RIP) a few years ago; my husband was one of the authors of Rural School Journeys.  You may be wondering about that button, which certainly looks like one of the Sycamore Street buttons, but that color — ?  One of the improvements to My Digital Studio in version 2 is the ability to recolor embellishments.  Never mind that the buttons are really in Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry, and Tangerine Tango, I chose to make mine a shade of gray to match my husband’s sweater.  Love that!

2013 SAB Blog Hop #1

My next scrapbook page may surprise you, because it certainly doesn’t look like content from this SAB disc!  But yes, that’s one of the DSP papers as the background, with the opacity reduced quite a bit.  I wanted it to give the feeling of windblown snow.  The ribbon is an altered version of the Sycamore Street ribbon, and the “snowflakes” are made from the stamp in the Madison Avenue set.  (Kindly do this grandmother a favor and click on the photo to see it better — enlarge it while you’re at it!)

2013 SAB Blog Hop #2I love the Vintage Verses set but wanted to do something unconventional with it.  Did you know you might be able to print on fabric on your ink jet printer?  This was demonstrated at the Stampin’ Up! Regional event I attend last fall.  I was anxious to try it but a little worried about securing the fabric to a piece of paper or card stock so that it wouldn’t get jammed in the printer.  That would be bad.  I mentioned this concept to my sister, who gave me an easy solution.  (No, I’m not going to tell you.  It will be my Tuesday Tip next week, so come back!)  Oh, and the different colors?  Of course I did that in My Digital Studio, using the Coloring Tool.  Amazing!

2013 SAB Blog Hop #3Are you getting the feeling that this software is a blast to work with?  My MDS students have lots of fun to look forward to!  I hope these project inspire you to get creating with My Digital Studio and the free Sale-A-Bration disc.  Now you’re on to the next stop on the blog hop — which is the first one!  Enjoy seeing some of the same patterns in Tanya’s Madison Avenue projects at Tinkerin In Ink.
