Sale-a-bration Blog Hop

Welcome to the Sale-a-bration blog hop organised very kindly by Helen from In Love With Stamping. If this is your first port of call I hope you enjoy the tour as you hop from one blog to another seeing all the wonderful creations made by other demonstrators using the current Sale-a-bration sets and hopefully you will feel inspired to get creating too. If you've arrived from Teri's blog and seen her fabulous creations I'm sure you're already picked up lots of ideas.

I've managed to use all four of the sets in one way or another, so here goes...

For the first one I used Happy Moments and Whimsical Words. For some reason every time I use Happy Moments I can't help but add some dazzling diamonds. I've coloured the presents with the blender pen and added a drizzle of glitter over the image just to give it that extra special touch - cute! There are three very tiny sweet sentiments in the Happy Moments set but I wanted to use Whimsical Words for this card to show you how beautiful they are - love those scripted words. The second card is using Vintage Labels. The intricate design of the circle label made me want to make it into a flower and thank goodness it fits inside the scallop circle punch....wouldn't really want to cut that one out would you?! The Happy Birthday sentiment is in the set too. And finally, put your sunglasses on for this one, here's Good Neighbors. It is quite bright isn't it?! Ok so that's me done. Hope you liked what you've seen and for more inspiration hop on over to Dawn's Blog here to follow on the tour. There are 15 blogs in this round but if you want to see more, there is also another Hop which starts here.

Right, I'm off to see what everyone has made. Tfl and if you've any questions, please ask.

See you soon,

Jo :)

Beautiful cards Jo. Love the use of textured card, I really must stop saving it just for the extra special occasions, lol. Clever use of punches on the Neighbors card, it looks like you're looking through a curtained window.
