Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop: Vintage Verse

Welcome to stop #6 on the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop!  If you are hoping in order than you arrived here from Betty's Kitty Stamp Blog and saw the clever things she made with Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit.  If this is your first stop on the hop, all the blogs are linked together in a circle so you won't miss a thing. If you get lost along the way or just want to chat it up, visit Stampin' Addicts.  This year's Sale-A-Bration offerings are just fabulous.  There truly is something for everyone and you will get to see all of it during this blog hop.

Lucky me, I get to show you one of the exclusive Sale-A-Bration stamp sets: Vintage Verse.  I love the variety of fonts used in this set and the fun shapes of the greetings.  There are four stamps in the set and I am going to show them all to you today.  Three of the projects also feature paper from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and some the matching ribbon and button bundle.  Both of these are also exclusive Sale-A-Bration items.  I will be sharing more details about these projects on Monday and Wednesday next week so be sure to check back.

First, "Just because." I thought this was the perfect greeting for a tag.  Who doesn't like to receive a little something special just because.  The tag also features just a bit of that Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and matching accessory bundle that I referred to before.

Next, I have my take on the hexagon card that has been all over the place since the Spring Catalog debuted.  Here, I filled it with more of the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper and paired it with the buttons and ribbon.  I can think of a few people in my life I could give a card to that says "There is only one you."  (And some of them I am glad there is only one of them. ;))  I do love the fun font and flourishes on this stamp.

Third, I made this thank you card for a recent swap and have been saving it to share with you on the hop.  This "Thanks" stamp is probably my favorite from Vintage Verses.  Here I paired it with another print from the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper (are you sick of it yet?  Really it is fabulous!  You will want some to go with this and all the other Sale-A-Bration stamp sets).

Finally, a little gift box.  I wanted to keep it simple and since I have a lot of boys in my life, keep it masculine.  I did use a stamp from another Sale-A-Bration exclusive set, Madison Avenue, on the base of the box, but I wanted to let this beautiful greeting set stand as the focal point of the project.

Convinced you need the Vintage Verses and the Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper yet?  Then I have done my job.  Come back on Monday and Wednesday to hear a little more about each of the projects.  Now you can hop on over to Kim's Stitchin' and Stampin' on Paper Blog to see her fabulous creations with Pretty Petites.  Happy hopping!
