Stampin' Addicts 2014 Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop. We are featuring items from the Stampin' Up Sale-A-Bration brochure which runs from January 28 to March 31, 2014. SAB, for short, is a special offer where you can choose a free item from the brochure with every $50 purchase.

If you are following the Blog Hop in order, you arrived from Rhonda's blog where she features the Sweet Sorbet Accessories Pack.

I hope you enjoy the ideas below using the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.

Fill this little bag with treats for someone sweet. Easy to make by embossing a sheet of Coastal Cabana. I stepped it up by die cutting the embossed piece with the Top Note Bigz Die.

Two little 3" x 3" note cards to show that the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder works great with Vellum and with Foil Sheets.

It is easy to make custom textured paper by embossing a sheet of Whisper White and then sponging with coordinating colors.

Embossing is easy and fun with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.

Stampin' Addicts 2014 Occasions Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts 2014 Occasions Catalog Blog Hop featuring items from newest catalog from Stampin' Up.

If you are following the Blog Hop in order, you arrived from Sara's blog where she features the stamp set "Love You to the Moon."

I am featuring the stamp set "Language of Love."  This is a perfect stamp set for all kinds of occasions.

Tell someone you love them with a handmade Valentine using Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White
and vellum.

Another great use for this set is a wedding or anniversary card.  The silver ribbon and silver vellum pair up beautifully with the Smoky Slate paper.

Pair up any coordinating colors to make a card to send to a friend. Guaranteed to let them know they are loved.

I love the Chevron gift bags. They are so easy to decorate for any occasion. Keep them on hand for quick and easy gift packaging. Did you notice how the banner is curved? If you get the cling mount set, you can adhere it to the block with a curve!


I hope you have fun with these ideas. This is a great little stamp set!

The next stop on the Blog Hop is Kim's blog where she is featuring Perfect Pennants.
