Stampin' Addicts Sale-a-bration Blog Hop



Hello and welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Sale-a-bration Blog Hop. This Blog Hop will run Friday, January 27 thru Sunday, January 29.  Lot's of time to view all the stops. If you have been following the hop in order you have just arrived from Yapha's Blog where she wowed us with her projects made with the
"Sprinkled Expressions" Stamp Set. There are 18 stops on the hop and I am stop #6.  So if you are just begining with my blog be sure and hop all the way around till you come back to my blog so you won't miss any of the fantastic projects that have been designed for your viewing pleasure. Ok on to my projects.  I also chose to showcase the stamp set "Sprinkled Expressions". I fell in love with this set the moment I saw it in the SAB Flyer.  So on to my projects.


For my first card I chose to make a Valentine.  Now looking at this card you are probably thinking that my colors are Red and Black, right?  How about Poppy Parade and Black, yep that's right.  The DSP I used for background was Everyday Enchantment and I have to say it has me under it's spell because I ♥ it!  So that means I have to buy lot's more Stampin' Up stuff so I can hord a bunch of this beautiful paper.  Oops sorry on to card #2...

So I'm not to sure about this one, I really wanted it to look like a lot of shooting stars, I think it needs a redo, just not quit what I had in my mind.  Has that ever happened to you?  But I do love the SAB ribbon. Eekk!!!Need more of that too. :)  Colors I used were Lucky Limeade and Poppy Parade.  Ok on to card #3...

Now I have to admit I kinda CAS'ed this one from the Stampin' Addicts Gallery  It belongs to smccain and I just fell in love with her card.  I changed it up a little and added my saying over to the side in a scallop circle.  Once again using that Wonderful SAB Designer Paper as my background.  Colors I used where Peach Parfait and Pool Party.  And for my last project I chose to finish the front of the journal we were given at Regionals in Louisville to alter.

Makes you happy just looking at it doesn't it? :o)  Again the yummy DSP that you can get for FREE along with the stamp set that you can get for FREE oh and did I mention you can get the ribbon and the brads for FREE and some of the cardstock I used for FREE. WoOHoO!  I used the large Scallop Square Die for my background and added some little pearls to finish it off.  I used Imagine from the Word Play Stamp set and the colors I used where Very Vanilla, Pool Party, and Poppy Parade.  Well that's all I have for you, I do want to thank you for stoping by and if you would be kind enough to leave a comment you'll be entered into a drawing to receive some BLOG CANDY, a "Sprinkled Expressions" Stamp Set and some samples of the DSP, ribbon and brads.  What do you think of that!  Now it's time for you to hop on over to Rhonda's Blog and see what fun things she has come up with using the stamp set "Outlined Occasions".  Happy Hopping!

I love your star card. It might not have been what you envisioned but I don't think you could have lined them up more perfectly!

Heidi Baks said...

I too need more paper, ribbon, brads... LOL! Great projects! Maybe they did the same presentation at the San Antonio regionals as in St. Louis? We got a creativity journal + challenges. Intriguing... I haven't started it yet though.

A sweet stamp set for a sweet friend! And I really like the star card!! I think the ribbons with the little knots give this a fun energy.
