Welcome to the second Wacky Watercooler Mini Hop for January. We are once again showing off product from the 2016 Occasions catalog,  Handmade from the Heart and the Sale a Bration catalog. I love Sale a Bration because I can earn free product with every $50 I spend. Being one of those people who "need" everything my pocket book is groaning, but I have some great free products now in my stash.

As always the hop moves in a circle so you can go forward or backward. If you are moving forward you arrived at my blog from Buffy's blog. She never ceases to have wonderful projects to share. Sometimes we even get to see that little cutie pie, Amelia. If you are moving backwards you came from Heidi's blog. She is a masterful artist with paper and ink.

Now for my contributions.

I figured since the next hop would be after St. Valentine's Day, that I would do a valentine. This will be going to my husband (shhhh, he hasn't seen it yet). Since I am a vintage girl, it is vintage style and all its parts are from the Occasions catalog. The base card is Blushing Bride CS with papers from the Love Blossoms DSP stack and embellishments from the Love Blossoms Embellishment kit. I used the Bloomin' Hearts Thinlit die to cut the heart from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper. My heart appears backwards from the image in the catalog because I had better luck cutting from the backside than front the front. I used the new Big Shot die brush to help remove all the "hanging chads". Wow, no more poking with something sharp. The flowers added to the heart are from the same thinlit  package cut from Rose Red CS. The Bloomin' Love stamp set provided the banner and Love You. I hand cut the banner though I could have used the Large Numbers framelit die to cut it. I used a little clear Wink of Stella glitter brush to add some shine to the little flowers.


My second card is for my husbands birthday, which also falls this next month. He loves flying and since that has been his career I thought this stamp set, Sky is the Limit was the perfect choice. This is one of the free items available from Sale a Bration, but it is a Limited Time offering and is available only until February 15.  The card base is Crumb Cake and the papers are from the Sale a Bration Perfectly Artistic DSP (also Limited Time). I know it is hard to see because of the distressing and sponging that I did. I stamped the plane and smoke trail using Early Espresso ink and hand cut them. A little Wink of Stella added the shine to the prop movement and the smoke trail as well as brushing some on the sky. The Lots of Labels Framelits provided the label to stamp the sentiments and I added Antique Brads and Linen Thread to complete the look.

I hope you have enjoyed my creations today, but there is more to come from the next hopper, Heidi. You will love her work.


  1. Christine, both projects are wonderful, but I really like the valentine. The "roughed up" DSP really brings the thing home!

  2. FABULOUS!!! Love the vintage look!

  3. Christine - these are GORGEOUS! I love the Valentine. It's so "you!" And the Sky Is the Limit is perfect for your sweetie. Love the sunrise/sunset! Both cards are just lovely.

  4. Wow Christine now you're all set for your hubby's birthday and Valentine wishes! Great cards. Can't get enough of the Sky is the Limit. You've created a great card with it!

  5. Your vintage valentine is so pretty, Christine! And you've created a perfect sky for your plane to sail off into...lovely cards!

  6. Hi Christine, thanks for being part of our wonderful blog hop. Wow! This mini blog hop post of yours should be dedicated to your husband, lucky fellow! I love his Valentine. What a great idea to turn the Glimmer paper upside down to cut it. That makes sense since the actual paper which gets cut is on the underside. I'm going to have to keep that "trick" in mind. I love vintage and your Valentine is a wonderful example of that style. I can't even begin to enumerate the things I like because that would be everything, but what really stands out for me is the way every product works together seamlessly. Your The Sky is the Limit vintage card is great! Your husband will love it! I love that it's square and that you've distressed the edges of your DSP. Great touch! The sky against which the bi-plane is set looks marvellous. Thanks for the inspiration.

  20. cool things to do with led lights in your room - One of the coolest things you can do with LED strip lights is getting a custom-made fixture for your living room, bedroom, or whatever room you choose. It can be or say anything that you want— “love” or “here for a good time, not a long time,” or your favorite song lyric— and in any color you want.

  21. Setting up an High Bay LED Lights kit is incredibly simple. The LED lights came on spools with adhesive backing.
