Sale-a-bration Scraps!

It never ceases to amaze me what can be created from a pile of scraps. Even the scalloped edge on the card below was a scrap, a result of cutting out the pattern on the reverse side of this DSP!

The right-hand side of the Summer Starfruit Die Cut was stamped-off with a stamp for the Petal Parade Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the Regarding Dahlias Stamp Set. The cork flowers from the Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack finished off the card nicely!

10 days and counting left for these and any of the wonderful 2014 Sale-a-Bration treats – call me SOON with your order so you don’t miss out!

Springtime Hello

From the Spring Catalog one of my favorite “go-to” sets would have to be the Springtime Hello Stamp Set. Seriously, it’s a tiny set but packs quite the delicate punch.

Even with Crumb Cake on the background of Whisper White Cardstock, this set is impressive. Although scanning my cards instead photographing them has done them no favors today, my apologies.

From something quite demur to something quite bold with the Bermuda Bay Cardstock, the Springtime Hello Stamp Set really works.

The Springtime Hello stamp set works beautifully also with the Sale-a-Bration Sweet Sorbet DSP and Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack as you can see.

Go on… Push the Envelope… DARE YOU!

Last week I was like a woman possessed with my Envelope Punch Board – not making envelopes of course – that was way too obvious. Instead, I was seeing just what else I could do with this item besides collecting dust on my shelves, lol!

This is just a few of things created. My sincere apologizes for the poor photography – I’m fighting off the beginnings of the flu I fear so am not firing on all cylinders you might say – hence settings aren’t as wonderful as I’d like!

Push the Envelope CreationsThe 3″x3″ Card Envelope is so quick and easy but why the 1-1/4″ punched hole you ask? For the wine of course! How often have you taken a bottle or two of wine with you to someone’s house but  to wrap or bag the wine would be overkill? Well, this I think is the perfect solution!

Then by simply adding an inch to all the measurements you have the cutest, and once again the easiest, little box to house four 3″x 3″ Gift Cards!

Then whilst working on a 4-1/2″x 6-1/2″ box for some regular-sized cards I stuck the sides down with sticky strip without aligning both sides of the box first. Possibly no one would have noticed but I knew I would so by simply cutting the top off the box, adding some lovely Sweet Sorbet DSP and matching ribbon it was all good. Looking at it now I think a handle would complete it nicely!
