ESAD last chance Sale-a-bration blog hop

Welcome from Nicole Wilson’s blog. Be ready to be inspired again.

It comes to that time of year again where sale-a-bration is drawing to a close. We have had amazing products again this year and I will be sad to see them go but you still have one week to get your hands on some of these freebies.

Tonight I’m sharing 3 cards made using 3 different Sale-a-bration sets. Yes, that’s right I’m doing cards for a change.

 

I just love Flowering Fields. It is so versatile. I also love this design of card. It is one of my go to designs. It is simple but it always works.

What I love has been a best seller for me. Now I’m not a fan of Wisteria Wonder but doesn’t it just look gorgeous here? This card design I CASed from an old Stampin’ Up! catalogue so make sure you keep your old catalogues for card inspiration when you’re stuck for a class idea.

The idea for this card came from Sara, now Stampin’ Up!s new CEO. She shared this idea a while back and I loved it. This is called Honeycomb Happiness. Get fussy cutting ladies and enjoy the DSP designs on your cards as well as the act of fussy cutting.  It is therapeutic if you are in the mood. I also made a very similar card using the ice cream in this set which was sent to a beautiful friend of mine.

Spiral Flower originals gift box

I often demonstrate this technique at a workshop and give it to the hostess as a gift. It is so very easy (so easy I have done it with my kids craft class) but so very effective.

So simple to do. I just inked the edges and then wound them up and hot glued them on. Bakers twine around the box. So beautiful. Add some choccies or a gift and you’re done.
