I LOVE 1/2 Price Sales!

Stampin Up! doesn't often offer a sale on it's stamps...maybe once or twice a year. The month of March happens to be when one of those sales is occurring! The Spring mini catalog is incredible. It is filled with beautiful color combinations, adorable stamp sets in so many different styles.
During March if you purchase the new set Polka Dots and Paisley ($17.95), the most incredible double sided paper - which is Petals & Paisleys ($8.95) and a new jumbo wheel - Petals ($7.95) you can pick anything out of the mini catalog for 1/2 price. There are a couple sets in there that are $28.95 and $29.95 - this means you can grab those for just $14 and $15!
Here is a sample I made using all three of the elements you need to purchase to take advantage of that sale. Hopefully I will get more time to play later tonight! I am also considering this for my upcoming class - To Embellish or Not Embellish. Each participant will make 10 cards. There will be 5 designs and each design will be done with one using an embellishment and the other will omit the embellishment. This should give you the opportunity to see how embellishments really spruce up your projects. The embellishment in this one is the metal edge tag. You could just punch out a circle, but I think the tag is really cute!
