Time to Sparkle with Amazing You for As You See It Challenge #166

In two more days, it will be New Year's Eve and it's time to welcome 2018! Who knows what it will have in store for us. I hope it's a great year for all of you! But New Year's Eve is traditionally a time when sparkle and shimmer is okay and you can let your inner glitter fiend loose for a bit!

As You See It Challenge thinks so too and there is a new Theme Challenge over there this morning!

I hope you'll have some glimmery fun and try it out this weekend. Here's my sample for the Design Team:

  • I generally get all giddy inside when someone gives me permission to use glitter and sparkle! I have to restrain myself otherwise, sometimes quite forcibly! With this card, I threw caution to the wind. Hopefully, I didn't throw good taste to the wind as well, but with the new Sale-A-Bration stamp set, *Amazing You, and Thinlits set, *Celebrate You. it would be hard to do that, since they are really tasteful and useful products. 
  • The first two words of the sentiment and the sunburst are stamped with images from the *Amazing You stamp set. It also has a great flower image as well as some more words with mixed fonts. The die cuts 'amazing' and 'YOU' are from the *Celebrate You thinlit set that is one of the Tier 2 rewards from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. You can earn with with $120 spent.
  • The background paper is from Foil Frenzy, found in the Annual Catalogue. The vertical stripes in Berry Burst compliment the horizontal pattern I've created with the lettering and image on the front panel.
*Product will be available to order when the 2018 Sale-A-Bration Brochure is in effect starting  Jan. 3, 2018.

The layout is from the latest challenge from Freshly Made Sketches, which has been going for three weeks or I would never have had the chance to play along. I've turned the sketch on its side as you can see:

This will be my last reminder for the Stamparatus and my second last for the Year End Sale and the end of the Holiday Catalogue!

You have until 10:50 pm PST Dec. 30 to reserve your Stamparatus. It's a $65 value and worth every penny! I am impatiently waiting for mine to arrive. As an L2L Team member that helped in the development of this tool, I was able to order mine on Dec. 20, and it shipped out right away. I should have it already, but wouldn't you know it - Customs decided they wanted to do a random check on it and held it in the warehouse to do a clearance check, then the massive snowmageddon happened and nothing is moving, so I am a victim of circumstance! And I'm not being very patient about it either! I'm shaking my fist at FATE!! I'll let you know the moment it arrives and I can fill you in on the quality and the way to use it!

To reserve yours, go to my On-Line Store, and click on the Stamparatus link.

There are many retiring products from the Holiday Catalogue and they will be gone on Jan. 2! Make sure there was nothing you wanted that is retiring. If there is something you want, contact me or visit my On-Line Store to order.

Here are some of the retiring sets that are discounted:
