by Stacey Marsh Independent UK Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, August 30, 2021

Hello and welcome to the August Stampers Showcase Blog Hop which is ALL about Sale-a-Bration!  Did you know that Sale-a-Bration is carrying on through September?  That means you have another month to get your hands on even more free product and there is so much to choose from!

I love that Stampin' Up! have given us FREE product that coordinates with existing products from our catalogues and my favourite has to be the PENGUIN PLAYMATES DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS that coordinates beautifully with the PENGUIN PLACE BUNDLE from the August to December Mini Catalogue. 

As part of today's hop you will find LOTS of inspiration to help you choose your next FREE product and I do hope you enjoy hopping around with us today. 

If you are joining the hop here, or you have joined me from the previous Demonstrator, a very warm welcome to you wherever you are in the world from here in the UK.  I have been a Demonstrator for almost 8 years now and I love connecting with people with my creativity across the globe in this way!

I created both of these cards during a Facebook Live demonstration last week and had lots of fun choosing the images to use from the PENGUIN PLAYMATES DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS! Click the image below to watch the replay on my Youtube channel.  Don't forget to click subscribe, I am almost at 1000 subscribers!

I love that the penguins have other animal friends to really bring these papers to life!  Do you have a favourite? 

For the first card design, I have used the PICTURE THIS DIES to bring it together and use as my template for all these cute characters.  

As an little "extra" touch on this card, I have added in some snowflakes that have been cut using another FREE Sale-a-Bration item (and my other favourite product in the offer), the BE DAZZLING SPECIALITY PAPER! The sparkle on this paper is just amazing and the photos really don't do it justice!  You get 8 6" x 6" sheets in the pack so use it wisely!

The sentiment for this card has come from the SNOWMAN SEASON STAMP SET and I have heat embossed it with white stampin' emboss powder onto MISTY MOONLIGHT CARDSTOCK

For the 2nd card in my set today I wanted to create a fun snowy scene using more images and few little extras.  Starting with a background of white cardstock, I have used the PAINTED TEXTURE EMBOSSING FOLDER to add texture and doesn't it look like a snow drift?  I love how embossing can really chance the way the cardstock looks and we have so many to choose from!

I have used a die-cut circle to layer underneath my fussy-cut characters to "spotlight" the area and it gave me the opportunity to layer some thread underneath for added texture.  The trees have been die-cut using the CHRISTMAS TREES DIES and they add more dimension and detail to my scene. 

To finish, I have added another sentiment from the SNOWMAN SEASON STAMP SET and isn't it perfect for this card?!  

These PENGUIN PLAYMATES DESIGNER SERIES PAPERS really are the most fun to work with and my head is full of so many ideas to inspire not just my christmas card but for a number of other occasions also!

If you would like to get your hands on these FREE papers, I have added the details below.  You just need to add £45 worth of product to your basket before you can add them for FREE!  These papers will not be available to purchase and they are only available until the end of September or while stocks last..and they are SUPER popular!

  6. These showcases are very beautiful and many people want to buy these at any cost because they want to send to their dear ones. Last week, I bought ten stampers and sent to the writers of dissertation writing services because they are my favourite as they helped me a lot while writing my dissertation.
