Scrapbooking with Karen 1 26 17 (click here to view my blog)

The layout for tonight was well accepted.  It was so much fun using the free Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-Bration Catalog along with the Up & Away Thinlits Dies from the Occasions Catalog.  The free Pretty Pocket Card Kit served as the journaling and title feature of the layout.

During Sale-a-Bration, you get to choose a free item from the Sale-a-Bration catalog for every $50 you spend in current Stampin' Up product (before tax and Shipping and Handling).
