Stampin' Addicts Sale a Bration Blog Hop Stop #2

Hello and Happy New Year!  Welcome to Stampin' Addicts Sale a Bration Blog Hop 2015!  Are you in for a treat!  So many fun goodies showcased in the Hop that you can get FREE when you purchase $50 in Stampin' Up products.  WoHoo!  If you are following the Blog Hop in order then you have just come from Heidi's Blog "RunningwScissorsStamper" where she wowed us with her great work using the Best Day Ever Stamp Set.  Makes you want to get that set now doesn't it.  There are 10 stops on the Hop so I hope you will "hop" all the way around to the beginning so you can view them all.  This "Hop" will run from Friday, January 2 thru Sunday, January 4.  So let's get on to my projects that I'm super excited to show you.
I chose the Best Year Ever Accessories for my product to work with.  This FREE product includes a container of buttons and 3 spools of ribbon in Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, & Crushed Curry.  What fun Springy colors!
My first project I made was a card with matching envelope.  A clean and simple card using each color of ribbon.  Adding just a simply saying from one of the new Occasions sets called Painted Petals finishes the card.  A little ribbon and a button on an envelope to match and it's done.
My second project is a Button Bracelet.  I have wanted to make one for a while now, so this gave me the perfect opportunity to get it done.  I love how it turned out.  (Although I used most of my buttons) but never fear I can get more FREE! with my next order. lol  I did use some white buttons from our Neutrals Pack from the Big Stampin' Up! Catalog.  Adding a bow after I finished it.  Stampin' Jill has a great video on YouTube on how to make these fun bracelets.  (Check it out after the "Hop")
And so my last project was a little Tag for my gift box.  Tags are so fun to make and give a personal touch to any gift.  I first punched out a tag using our Note Tag Punch and then using Calypso Coral stamped the phrase and flower from the FREE SAB set Simply Wonderful on it.  I trimmed thin bits of Crushed Curry ribbon and threaded though my 2 buttons to give a fun look to them and glue dotted them to the tag.  I added a Coastal Cabana ribbon to my box to close it up, and there you have it!  I hope you have enjoyed my projects as much as I did making them for you.  Now it's time to "Hop" on over to Tina's Blog "Paper Art Garden" and see what wonderful projects she has made for us using the Project Life Mini Card Collection.  I can't wait!
