Sweet Stampede Blog Hop!


Hello there everyone!! And welcome to the Sweet Stampede Blog Hop! I am SO excited to be participating this month as this is my very first Blog Hop, yay!
So today we are showcasing products from the Sale-a-Bration catalog. And believe me, there is so many goodies in there, have you checked it out? 

Without further ado, here is my first project, it's an adorable set of note cards made with the fabulous narrow note cards and envelopes.  
What I love about this item is that the cards come ready to decorate, they are even scored for you, yay! It was really easy and fast to put this together, a breeze project!  AND.... the butterflies are a FREE paper from the Sale-a-Bration catalog AND the ribbon is also FREE. Unfortunately the ribbon is not orderable right now (I know, boohoo!), but they will become available again in March, so be patient!

Here is the envelopes, I kept really simple, but I love when envelopes are stamped or decorated. ;-)



And it's just fitting that I made a box to hold these note cards and envelopes, hence the reason why I had to keep them simple and not many embellishments so they could all fit in the box. I made 6 cards and envelopes and they easily fit with a room for probably a couple more if you don't use too much embellishments.



Isn't it cute?? I was really happy with the results! 




The lid measures 7 1/8 x 9 1/8 -  score at  1" and 2" on all sides. Then you cut the 3 edge squares on all 4 sides. Add a strong adhesive only to the long flaps as shown in the picture above, and that is it!!


I love that is double sided paper (FREE) so when you open the box is pretty all around!
As for the bottom of the box, it measures 8 x 10 - score at 1 1/4 and 2 1/2 on all sides and follow the same cutting and adhering as the lid. Easy, right?!
And last but not least, what is a gift without a tag? This one couldn't be simpler. But hey, I was in a hurry! ;)
The Scalloped Tag Topper is such a great tool to have. I reach out to this guy all the time. But how cute is that?! It measures 2 x 3 1/2.
One last pic of them all!
And now all wrapped up and ready for gift giving! ♥
A little side view for you.
