Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop 2015

Today I am participating in the Stampin' Addicts Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop.  I just love this Sale-A-Bration and all the items you can get for free.  I know I will be making sure I have the rest of the Blendabilities I don't have.  I love the stamp sets and the project life cards.  I am not a big project life scrapper but I do love the cards and accessories packs to make my own cards.  I choose This Day Project life Mini card Collection to show off this year.

Now if you are following in order you cam from Tina who showed off the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper. She did some really great work.

Let me show you some of the things I did with This Day Project Life Mini Card Collection.

I went through the cards to see what jumped out at me and the first one I saw was the Postcard Card.  I knew right away that I had to use that one.  My oldest daughter is home from college and heading back on the 10th and I wanted to send her something to arrive when she does and this is perfect.  The photo is of Christmas Morning (Sorry it is so gray but it just turned out that way).  I really hope she remembers the good times of being home but still the great times she is having at college.

I also used the Occasion Stamp Set Big on You for it, because I do think she is pretty swell.  Now I have to mail it so it arrives just as she does.

This second one I made when the sun was not shinning in Cheyenne - we don't get to many of those days and it feels odd and cold when the sun doesn't shine. So I had to use this to remind me that the sun will be here again.

I also used the new Happy Heart Embossing Folder from the Occasion Catalog. I love the bright colors takes my mind off the cold temps we have been having like -3 below.  I just have to keep saying we had a week of 60 degrees in December it will get us through it.

This last one I just had to use since it matched so well with a lot of things in the Occasion Catalog and it was again bright and cheerful.  This card Says Happiness is: I just had to use this Stamp from the Indescribable Gift Set. Doesn't it just shout it out and make you take notice  -  I know two people who would love this card now how to choose which one to give it to.

You will notice a lot of Occasion Catalog items on this card - Bow Builder Punch ( I love to make bows and love this punch),  Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper (you have to see this in person the photos just don't do it justice in the catalog) and the Spring Flowers Embossing Folder.  

If you get the items I used from the Occasions Catalog (total 69.75) you will be able to get This Day Project Life Mini Card Collection for free.

Hope you enjoyed my part of the hop.  Next stop is Yapha and You Brighten My Day Stamp Set.  She has done some amazing things.
