We've had lots of excitement lately in my Stampin' Up team with some girls who've worked to achieved big promotions. Perfect time to sit down and make some congratulations cards.
I loved the Happy Congratulations set in the Occasions catalogue so this was a nice opportunity to give it a run.
A few years ago at our Stampin' Up convention I learnt a trick from one of the demonstrator presenters (now who was that - I forget, if you know leave a comment and I'll link!) It was a nice way to use ribbon scraps as a feature on a card. Just lay some lengths together and tie them with a longer piece.
Storing and Using Scraps Tip: Ever since I've been saving my ribbon offcuts in a basket in a drawer and every now and then I grab a bundle that seem to work together and add them to a creation.

Feel like a bit of sparkle, perhaps a touch of disco?
Quite loving this sparkly sequin trim. Right here.

Got anyone to congratulate this month? I made 3 cards using the same design but different colours so I've got a couple of other variations to share in the coming weeks - stay tuned.
And since I do really love a good inspirational quote, maybe I'll finish off with one I saved this week. Do you have any favourite quotes? I've always loved collecting ones that speak to me.
Have a great week and happy stamping!
