Sale-a-Bration and Spring/Summer Catalogue Blog Hop!

Welcome to the ILWS Sale-a-Bration and Spring/Summer Catalogue Blog Hop.  You may have landed here from the talented Sarah and hope you enjoy my project using the gorgeous products available free for every £45 spend during Sale-A-Bration offer time, 22 January to 22 March.

As I am useless at organising my cards to send and in desperate need of some efficiency, I decided to create a box that I could use to store the cards as I make them.  I made index cards for each month, leaving space to write on the date and event.  I can then file the cards as I make them, ensuring I have one ready when needed, well that's the plan ;-)

The box features bunting made from card and the Sycamore Street papers punched with the Petite Pennants Builder Punch, with the lettering from the Broadsheet Alphabet Set.  The flower was made with the scallop circle punch - 5 scallop circles, snipped at each scallop, dampened with a water brush and scrunched up to create the petals.  Each one was layered on top of each other, and secured with Tombow liquid glue.  When dry, a button was added to the centre with a glue dot - simple, yet effective!

Here is a close up of the the index cards.  I used the Madison Avenue stamp set to decorate the ruled card and the tabs were made with the Decorative Label punch and the Broadsheet Alphabet stamp set.

The vibrant colours are Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango, Rich Razzleberry and Island Indigo.  All these colours are in the Sale-a-bration Sycamore Street Designer Series Paper pack.

Inside the box lid I added a calendar pad and a small envelope to hold my stamps.  The envelope was made using the Scallop Envelope Bigz die and the Big Shot.  Now I have no excuse!!
