Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop - Heartfelt

Welcome to the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop.

Yes it is that time of year again Sale-A-Bration.  Don't you just love to get free items.  This year Stampin' Up! has 13 items that you can get during Sale-A-Bration, Yes 13 items. The Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop has all 13 items in the hop so you can see them all.

Now if you came in order you got here from Twila (Stamp a Little Longer) and her Twisty Treats.  Aren't they great, doesn't she do a lovely job.
If you would like to hear more about the Hop you can find out a lot of the information here:
You can also go to my Linky/Blog Hop Page to find all the participants.

What did I choose to do?  I choose Heartfelt the Banner Kit.

I really like Banners and wanted to see this one.  I made one according to the instructions - I did have some left overs that I used in other ways.  I did not include photos on it as I am going to give it to my daughter who is graduating this year and I want her to fill it up with her friends senior pictures so she can take it to college.

I did sponge up some of the flags.  The coordinating colors are Calypso Coral, Coastal Cabana and Pear Pizzazz.  I love the flower flags, and the felt balls are great.  I added a stamp from You're Lovely.  I intertwined the two strings with the felt balls and the flags.

I had a few things left over and needed a Birthday Card so I used some of the left over on a card.

I also used the Sale-A-Bration Set - See Ya Later (133536).  From the Occasion Mini Catalog I used Banner Framelits (132173). From the Annual Catalog I used the Chevron Embossing Folder (127749).  I Sponged the Heart with Coastal Cabana.  I attached the heart with Sticky Strip everything else with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I love the Chevron look with the banner framelits.

The next thing I knew I was opening my second pack of Heartfelt and was doing some cards.
I really love this one.

I used three of the flags from Heartfelt (133514),  I told you I love the Flower Flag doesn't it just pop.  The green flag fit perfect behind the Flower Flag with just the top and bottom showing and makes it stand out.  I then layered them on the one of the Heart cut out flags.  I used Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (133520) for the background on the Calypso Coral Card.  I used, I like you from You're Lovely Sale-A-Bration set (133578), and the Circles Collection Framelits (130911).  This is one of the best cards I created with the Heartfelt Banner Kit.  I may show more later.

Hope you like this part of the hop.  Your next stop will be Yapha at Rubber Stamping & Card Making with Yapha She has some great projects using See Ya Later.
You can also get to Twilia and Yapha with these arrows.  Have fun at the rest of the Blog Hop.
