Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop - Stop #5

sabbanner

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts SU! Sale-A-Bration Blog Tour.  All participants in this tour are featuring creations they made with items you can earn for FREE during Stampin' Up's SAB period (January 5 - March 31).  For every $50 purchase of Stampin' Up! merchandise you get to choose one item from the SAB catalog free.  It doesn't get much better than that!

If you started this tour from the beginning you came upon my blog after visiting Sarah.  Didn't you love the wonderful projects she made using the Good Neighbors stamp set?  If you're starting the tour at my website, just follow the link at the bottom of this post to continue on your journey.  If you get lost along the way, you can always jump back on the tour bus by visiting Stampin' Addicts for the complete list of participants.  This tour will run through Monday evening ... so sit back, relax and enjoy!!!

I am showcasing the "Welcome Neighbor" designer series paper pad.  I'm tellin' ya, this pad is HUGE and the selection is fantastic!  72 total sheets of 6" square papers ... 3 sheets each of 24 different designs ... I had such a tough time deciding which designs I wanted to use, I love them all!  I'm not going to go into too many details, don't want to hold the bus up ... check back next week, I'll be posting more details on these projects.

My first project is a magnetic post-it note holder.  This cute little heart design makes a great background paper, the colors are so vibrant and fun yet not overpowering.  The bird is punched using the brand new Two-Step Bird punch from the reverse side of the heart paper.  I added one of SU's rhinestone brads, a bit of ribbon and a magnet on the back. 

POST IT HOLDER

This next project was super fun to design and make, an idea I've had in my head for quite some time. I've been looking for something cute and small to keep my notepapers and writing utensils in, which seem to always be hiding from me when I need them.  You could use this for almost anything - I found a few bottles of SU ink refills fit perfectly in the bottom section! 

2 TIER DESK CADDY

My last item is a set of mini gift cards and envelopes in a matching box - perfect for a quick and easy last minute gift!  Once again, all these cute designer prints can be found in the SAB Welcome Neighbor paper pack.  Can you spot the two discoveries I found when making these?  They might not be new ideas to you, but they sure were to me.

GIFT NOTE SET
Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting, I hope you enjoyed my projects as much as I did creating them.  Please continue on the tour by visiting Sharon who will be showcasing the Whimsical Words stamp set.

beautiful projects and i love the embosslit mat behind the heart punch

Heidi Baks said...

I love the "neighborhood box". How cute! All I could guess is you found the embosslit heart and punch heart fit into each other (news to me, but I'm not surprised with SU!).

Kim said...

Love them all. Great ideas. I see the embosslit behind the heart as Mary did, and the Favor box for your uber cool neighborhood box.
