Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

http://www.stampinaddicts.com/forums/general-stampin-talk/9553-sale-bration-blog-hop-january-2-2015-a.html
Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop!!  Sale-A-Bration is my favorite time of the year for Stampin' Up!  So many fun new things to get for free!  If you are hopping in order, than you've arrived here from Rhonda's The Stampin' Bunny look at the Irresistibly Yours Paper.  Now I have some great ideas what to do with the package that is currently sitting in my craft room. All the blogs are linked together in a circle, so if they is your first stop, you won't miss anything.  And if you get lost along the way, you can always head over to Stampin' Addicts for a complete list of hop stops.

Today, I'm showcasing a perfect little stamp set: Simply Wonderful.  This is one you will want to have in your collection, especially if you are a beginning stamper, because it has three perfect sets of greetings in it and a cute little flower to go with it.  (Don't look for that flower on any of my projects because it didn't make it on them. Oops!)

First up a card featuring a few other Sale-A-Bration goodies too that you are seeing a lot of on this blog hop on a Thank You card:

Colors: Coastal Cabana, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Crushed Curry and Sahara Sand.  Stamps: Simply Wonderful (SAB Exclusive).  Accessories: Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper and Accessory Pack (SAB Exclusives), Whisper White Baker's Twine.
 Next, I broke out some of the new Occasions Catalog items including the new Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and the chalk ink and chalkboard paper to make a little gift for a friend:
Colors: Calypso Coral, Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana and Black.  Stamps: Simply Wonderful (SAB Exclusive).  Big Shot: Mini Treat Bag Thinlits Dies.  Punches: Extra Large Oval. Accessories: Aquamarine & Rose Coral ColorBox Chalk Ink Pads, Chalkboard Paper, Chalk Marker, Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper and Accessory Pack (SAB Exclusive), Clothespin.
And last, I paired this set with some of the fun wedding card items in the new Occasions Catalog to make a window card:
Colors: Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloupe, Pink Pirouette, Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky, and Pistachio Pudding.  Stamps: Something Wonderful (SAB Exclusive) and Something Lacy.  Big Shot: Oval Framelits.  Accessories: Many Marvelous Markers.  Sahara Sand 7/8" Lace Trim.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop and be sure to leave a little blog love along the way.  Next stop is Holly's Rubber Redneck and her look at A Happy Thing.  She has me adding this step to my next order.  Happy Hopping!
