Monthly Paper Crafting Blog Hop -- Sale-a-Bration Birthday ideas

Hello friends!

Welcome to our March Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop focusing on products from the 2019 Sale-A-Bration (SAB) and the new Occasions catalogs for celebrating birthdays. If you arrived from Sandra Roberts' you saw her fabulous birthday project!

During SAB you can earn FREE items with every $50 order...and there are many items to choose from! Once again fellow Stampin Up demonstrators from around the world are participating in a hop this month sharing wonderful birthday projects!

My project is a quick and easy birthday card featuring the SAB Painted Seasons bundle which includes the Painted Seasons stamp set and the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper (DSP). 
NEWS FLASH.......the DSP is now available outside of the bundle as an individual SAB item, free with a $50 purchase! How sweet is that! 

My inspiration was a card I saw on Sandy Hancock's blog (click here to see it). I loved the colors as well as it's quick-and-easy design. 

I added the flower image from the stamp set as a background on the Petal Pink card base and on the stitched circle framelit. Stampin Up creates products that coordinate--paper, ink, and stamps. They do the hard work of coordinating so I can make a super easy-to-create card in minutes!!! 

Do you find it easier to create when products coordinate? Leave a comment, I'd love to hear your thoughts on coordinating products!
