January Alaska Achievers Blog Hop - SAB and Occasions Showcase

Welcome to our Blog Hop today!  To be part of this blog hop you need to have achieved the Stampin'Up incentive trip to Alaska in July 2018.... not everyone that earns the trip is part of it, and i dont always have time to do it every month myself.... but this month I couldnt miss this theme! We are showcasing the AWESOME Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues.... and there are so many fabulous products to work with!

In fact trying to choose just a few products was such a challenge as there are so many that I love. So I picked a favourite - the Waterfront stamp set - and then threw together a BUNCH of different Sale-A-Bration (SAB) products for good measure!

This time I have made a simple little watercolour landscape on my Stitched Shapes oval.  The backing DSP behind the oval is from the "Bubbles and Fizz" SAB set.   The frayed ribbon poking out from behind the oval is from the Shimmer ribbon 3-pack (another SAB product) and the "embossed" background on the pool party cardstock is not actually embossing at all... instead its the word "Amazing" cut with the Celebrate You framelits (another SAB product pack) multiple times in the same colour, and then adhered to the background cardstock.  Finally the sentiment "For You" is also from an SAB set... its called Happy Wishes.  Its a beautiful double-case set of sentiments, for all kinds of occasions.  And lastly, the sentiment has been die cut with another Occasions set... the Petals and More thinlit dies.

And there was one more reason I chose the Waterfront stamp set for this hop..... the trees, mountains and water kind of remind of somewhere..... could it be.... ALASKA!  I had a lot of fun making this card... and basically throwing together as many SAB products onto one card as I possibly could!  Hmmmm... is it too much???
