NC SU Demos Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be part of the NC SU Demos Blog Hop! Follow through the blogs to see lots of great ideas using Sale-a-Bration (SAB) items. SAB items are those wonderful products you can get for free through March 31. Get 1 free item for each $50 purchase. Once you see the great projects in this blog hop, your wish list will probably be big enough to earn a free item (or two).

I have two projects for you today using the SAB items Flowering Fields stamp set and the coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) Wildflower Fields.

The first project is a center step card. In addition to the featured SAB items, I used the stamp set And Many More, which is so versatile. Several other sentiments in that set could be substituted for the one I used and the card would be good for a different occasion. The sentiment was die cut using my Big Shot and the banner from the Large Numbers Framelits Dies. The bow was made with the Bow Builder Punch. I used my Stampin' Write marker to add the grasss.

Did you notice how the butterflies on the front are lightly colored? I used clear Wink of Stella on them. It blended the ink a little and added some sparkle. I couldn't get the sparkle to show in my pictures, but trust me, it is very cool!

 Here's the inside of the card. The sentiments, like the one on the front, are from And Many More. The flowers are the same ones, from Flowering Fields, as used on the front of the card.

Here's the second project I made. It's a note holder with a chipboard coaster as it's base. I cut the DSP to the size of the coaster and then used the Project Life Corner Rounder Punch, which matched perfectly.  The flowers on the left are a decoration and on the right is a 2x3 pad of Post-It notes. I fabricated an easel back and attached it to the back of the coaster so I can stand it up on my desk.
I covered the clothespin with DSP to make it look pretty. I also lightly sponged around the clothespin with Calypso Coral ink. Wonder why I added it? So I can pin notes to my holder. It grabs my attention because it looks different and when I don't need the note any more, I pull it off and the pretty flowers are back.

By the way, the clothespins are on the Weekly Deals list through tomorrow night.

That's it for my projects. Thanks for stopping by. Head on over to the blog of Pam Staples to see another great project.
