I am falling in love with the Berry Delightful and Berry Blessings set that come FREE as part of Sale-a-Bration. At first, the thought of fruit on a card didn’t appeal to me and I preferred the patterned sides of the paper. But the more I look at it, the more the fruit draws me in. And this card will hopefully show you why!
The colours on this particular pattern are gorgeous, they open you up to endless colour choices for a project and make life that bit easier when understanding what you are going use. When I first saw this pattern, I knew it had to be a project that showed off the paper, with minimal stamping – so a card seemed the perfect opportunity.
With a quick sentiment at the bottom and a strawberry fussy cut from a left over piece. This card is too cute to keep! A close up of the paper pattern above should show you why. Anyone who receives that won’t be able to stop themselves from falling in love with it too.
Every now and then you need a teeny tiny project to come into your life and remind you that they’re just as cute as their large project counterparts. My inspiration for this cute little clutch bag-esque design was from Angelina over at Intatwyne Designs who made a very similar project a few years ago now.
Using the Berry Delights FREE goodies earned from the Sale-a-Bration Catalogue, I used both the paper and the stamp set to bring together the project. Using the key colours of Granny Apple Green and Poppy Parade, and a new gorgeous punch from the Mini Catalogue. .
This close up picture shows you the beautiful detail of the paper and shows that even though it’s a free product, the quality is still the same high standard.
Excited doesn’t even come close – yesterday the new Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalogue for January to June 2021 launched – eek! So in true fashion, today’s project features new product. But this new product isn’t available to just anyone, oh no. The Designer Series Paper shown on the exterior of this box is part of an amazing gift to anyone who joins Stampin’ Up! during Sale-a-Bration. You can read more about this by clicking the button below!
The paper used is Crushed Curry from the Regals collection, but in my video I used Granny Apple Green which is from the Brights Family. Both of them are gorgeous colours to showcase this paper. I kept my box simple, as I want the DSP to really be shown off and take centre stage. With ab bit of white edging, I’m sure you would agree that the pattern of the paper really makes the box look fabulous!
Of course, to finish the box I have used one of my fave stamp sets from the new Mini Catalogue / Sale-a-Bration brochures called ‘Approaching Perfection’. The sentiments are just perfect and I find myself reaching for them again and again, as the jokey nature of the sentiments are my style all over.
Which colour do you prefer from the two showcased? If I made a third box – what colour would you like to see me use?
It’s sneak peek time! First up I wanted to showcase one of the gorgeous papers available in the Sale-a-Bration brochure and one of several options when you place a qualifying order over £45 / 60 €. Technically, this project contains two items available in the brochure, but the main focus of today is on the gorgeous ‘Oh So Ombre’ Designer Series Paper.
The paper pack has 4 different colours in it; Bermuda Bay, Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green and Rococo Rose (see video for a peek at these!) and has 2 designs in each colour – which are absolutely gorgeous. All four are amongst my faves from the Stampin’ Up! colour families.
My project today is inspired by a treat box that Pootles first made approximately 5 years ago using the envelope punch board. Unfortunately, the punch board is now retired and so I wanted to find a way in which I could still make a treat box that looked the same, but only used a score board.
After a bit of playing with different techniques and measurements, I hit the jackpot and found the perfect technique for making boxes like this – please watch the video and you will see how easy the scoring is!
And look at the finished result, sweet and simple – just how we like our projects!
