Time for a birthday sampler made possible by the Cake Soiree Bundle and of course those stinkin’ cute Party Pandas.  One of the best parts is that you can earn the panda set for FREE with a qualfying Sale-a-Bration order.

Picture Perfect Birthday is another fabulous new birthday set you’ll want to add to your stash.  This is an 18 piece photopolymer set and it will be hard to resist those horn blowers and candles.  The sentiments in this set are fantastic with a fresh font and lots of elements to make your projects super cute.

Sale-a-Bration just got more exciting with a new Level 2 offering this year.  With a $100 order you can choose the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies for FREE.  And guess what, that set will carry over into the next annual catalog, but it won’t be free, so now is your chance.  Don’t miss out.

Those little Pandas are just too cute and I’ve created a color wash in the background to make them pop right off the page.  That gorgeous birthday cake is the star of the show and can be found in the Cake Soiree Bundle on page 12 of the Occasions Catalog.  That bundle contains a gorgeous 18 piece red rubber set with 16 coordinating framelits.  Love it!

That stunningly beautiful Sweet Soiree Specialty designer series paper used throughout the project is from the same suite.  Each sheet is double sided and one side of each sheet contains silver foiling.  You just have to see these in person to really appreciate them.  

I’ve recorded a video on this project and welcome you to CASE this birthday sampler and share it with someone special.
