Welcome to my part in the Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop.

If you’ve not visited anywhere else yet, welcome as well. Just make sure you either blog back to Erika’s (Twin Trouble) blog or forward onto Jeanette’s blog. so you don’t miss out on the rest of the hop.
The object of this blog hop is to bring you many wonderful, stunning creations using Stampin’ up!’s fabulous Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set. Well here’s my contribution... Enjoy!

My first item for you is a Mini Magazine Holder and matching cards using the fabulous Punch Bunch Stamp Set and So Happy for You Stamp Set. I’ve also used the In Colors ™ Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzazz and Peach Parfait cardstock & Ink and Pear Pizzazz ribbon. I have also used the Two-Step Bird Punch for the braches for the little owl’s to sit on and gold brads on the holders tag. The lovely spotty paper is from the In Colors ™ Designer Series Papers Stack.

Next up is a perfect little Post-it Note ™ Holder in the same colours as before. The moon behind little own is made using Textured So Saffron Cardstock and the 1 3/4 “ Circle Punch. These make great little thank you presents for friends and family.

And lastly I just couldn’t resist a neat little 6”x6” scrapbook page of my 2 little ones taken about a year and a bit ago. Aw!!!

Sweet Summer SAB Blog Hop

The main Page is Pear Pizzazz, with Blushing Bride dotty paper from the In Colors ™ Designer Series Papers Stack. The photo mat is Concord Crush. One of my favourite colours!

The gorgeous flowers are from the SAB set Sweet Summer. I stamped them in Concord Crush on to Blushing Bride cardstock and cut them out. I just love this set and have used it loads since I got it.

The So Happy tag is from the So Happy for you SAB stamp Set, which I coloured just the first part of the set with my Concord Crush In Colors ™ Stampin Write Marker. I then punched it out using the Modern Label Punch. I took the edges off by punching the edges through the modern label punch and then mounted it onto a Concord Crush Modern Label.
A few of the Basic Pearls Jewels later and there you have it.
