Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop.

Its time to hop ... where did you start? Have you come from Jo's blog or have you started here? I'm really excited about this event, each one of us on the hop have created some fantastic projects using the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets and shared them on our blogs, as long as we all have our links working it should work so that you read all the way to the bottom of my post and I show you the link to the next blog, you follow that and that blogger leads you to the next blog and so on, eventually you'll come back to me. There are 15 of us in this loop (there are two loops running today).

For those that have joined me from Jo's blog, Welcome, I really do hope that you are enjoying your tour of the very talented people that have posted projects and ideas for you to try using your Sale-A-Bration stamp sets!

Don't forget all the Sale-A-Bration sets are available for a limited time only and each one is free with every £45 you spend in the Stampin' Up! catalogue.

I'm really looking forward to spending a few hours today blog hopping myself!!
So my two projects, both using Good Neighbours

First, a double scrapbook page using Good Neighbors a set comprising 3 houses, 3 roofs, 3 trees and a cloud ...

Cardstock: Ruby Red, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Sahara Sand
DSP: Rose Red Designer Series Paper, Chocolate Chip Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Good Neighbours (SAB), Big Deal Alphabet
Mediums: Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Really Rust
Embellishments: 5/8" Chocolate Chip & More Mustard 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Flower Fusion felt flowers, Filigree designer brad, Vintage & Circle fire rhinestone brads.
Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Scallop Edge punch, Paper piercer, Stamp-a-ma-jig.

It was a great excuse to use every stamp in the box! And of course some of my favourite stash, I seriously love those flower fusion felt flowers, they are so easy to work with, and that filigree designer brad {swoon} I had to force myself to add it to the page - I like to sit and stroke them - they are gorgeous!! I stamped the houses using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the roofs and trees - This piece of kit is a MUST HAVE once you own it you'll wonder what you ever did without it.

And for my second project, a reasonably quick and simple card ...

Cardstock: Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Sahara Sand
Stamps: Good Neighbours (SAB)
Mediums: Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa, Creamy Caramel, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Really Rust, Bordering Blue
Embellishments: 1" Double Stitched Chocolate Chip & 5/8" Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, Linen thread, Latte Design Button.
Tools - Paper cutter and scorer, Snail adhesive, Mat Pack & Paper piercer, Stamp-a-ma-jig.

Again I've used stash that I've been hording, I love that double stitched ribbon and try to save it for special occasions - what am I like!!

So who do you visit next? I'm going to pass you onto the very talented Elizabeth (Stash Fairy), I know you are going to love the projects she has designed for you!
Thank you so much for joining us on our blog hop, I really do hope that every visitor today leaves me a comment, it would be great to hear what you think about the hop and what we've all created with the same stamp sets ... I promise where possible I'll be back to visit you ...

I hope you've enjoyed the hop so far

Come back soon
