Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop - bundle up!

 
Thank you so much for joining us for our February Stylin' Stampin' Squad Blog Hop! Sale-a-Bration is in full swing and it's one of the BEST specials that Stampin' Up! provides every year! Each of the stops along our hop will give you a bundle of items that you can purchase that will total around $50 and give you a FREE Sale-a-Bration item!! 

You won't want to miss these exclusive Sale-a-Bration items: 


As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 16 on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad blog hop – Pam of Stampin' in the Sun. If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below.
 
I created my own little “bundle” of goodies to share with you that you could purchase for just a little over $50 and then get a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!! There are many Sale-A-Bration items to choose from (see above)

I chose the clear mount Chalk Talk stamp set and coordinating Chalk Talk Framelits Dies to be used with the Big Shot die-cutting machine. (Did you know you can buy the stamp set and Framelits Dies as a bundle to save 15%?) I wanted to pair this stamp set and Framelits Dies with a fun pack of DSP and I just love the colors and patterns in the I Am Me Designer Series Paper, so that was my choice! With these three items, it didn’t quite hit $50 to get a free item, so you can add a pack of assorted coordinating cardstock or a pack of the Subtles Candy Dots, which is what I show in my bundle.

My FREE Sale-A-Bration item!! You'll notice I tried to incorporate this in all of my cards

It was my mission to create a card or project using each image in the Chalk Talk stamp set. I did, in fact, use all of them, but one of the cards you’ll have to come back tomorrow to see! I’ll be sharing a couple of cards and a project that use hearts…just perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Disclaimer: In a couple of these cards/projects I used some retired Pool Party ruffled ribbon which is no longer available (didn’t realize it before everything was done!) The best replacement for that is our Pool PartySeam Binding Ribbon

All colors used in today’s card and project are: So Saffron, Basic Gray, Real Red, Calypso Coral, & Pool Party





This is a fun pizza box I created that is the perfect size for some candy, jewelry, a gift card, etc. It would be fun to crinkle up some coordinating teeny strips of paper to go inside as “basket filler”. The tutorial to create this box can be found HERE. It is super easy and fun to decorate! HERE is one I created a few years ago.

The band slips off all intact. I created the band from a 1” x 11” piece of cardstock and then used Sticky Strip to adhere together. I wrapped a piece of Pool Party ribbon around and tied with a bow. The fun thing about this stamped framelit is that you can just tuck the “hole” under the bow without having to tie anything on.
