Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop

Hi Guys

it is a long time since I have been a part of a blog hop but with the Sale-a-Bration well and truly upon us it is time to show you some projects.  You should have come here from the lovely Anthea's blog and hasn't she done some lovely things.

My projects are here


 Firstly I have used Sweet Summer.  We were very lucky and we got this set at Convention last year free.  I love this set as much as I love all of the other sets in the Sale-a-Bration catalogue.  I have used the Brights selection of colours for this  set of cards along with a liberal dose of basic pearls.  I have used the DSP Brights Stack which work lovely for this set of cards.  Don't forget to click on the image to make it bigger.  I have then made a box for them all to go in so you could always give away to a friend as a pressie.



My second offering is using the Bliss set.  I have used this set to show that you don't need to distress and make old with this set.  It can be very elegant especially when teamed up with some elegant DSP like I have here using the Lap of Luxury papers.  I have coordinated with Concord Crush, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey and Very Vanilla.  Along with a liberal smattering of Basic Pearls again it looks really pretty.  The bow on the front of the box has been done by taking a length of ribbon and folding into thirds and wrapped a Pretty in Pink flower brad around and adhered with a dimensional.  The box on this set has two 'pockets' inside for the cards to go in.  The ribbon has been attached with two Pretty in Pink brads through the handles from a bull dog clip, ingenious I saw it somewhere but not sure where so can't credit.

The next thing to do is to go and see Sandra to see what delights she has in store for you.  There are 4 different blog hops on at the moment and they start at these links


AND FINALLY


Come back later in the week and I will have a tutorial for the Bliss set.  The Bliss set will be given away as part of my blog candy that will be coming up shortly. 

I hope you like and until next time

happy crafting

  5. What gorgeous boxed sets. These are both fabulous. I just can't pick a favourite between them. Love the bright cheery colours of the first and the stylish elegance of the second. If they need a home I've got space ...
