In Love With Stamping Saleabration Blog Hop...

Welcome to our In Love With Stamping Blog Hop... there are 30 of us taking part so we have split it into 2 blog hops 15 in each. Each project will use something out of the Stampin' Up! Saleabration Set and we hope this gives you some inspiration so you can design your own goodies with the stamp sets. If you have reached me that means you have come from Jan's blog here (hopefully) if not please make sure you go back and visit Jan's blog and her wonderful designs.

To get these sets you just need to spend £45 in the current Stampin' Up! catalogue and pick one of the sets free... if you would like to place an order with me just contact me on LindaLloyd@gmx.net.



I decided to be a bit more adventurous with these designs and made a suitcase out of Sahara Sand, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust and Chocolate Chip Cardstock using the Spiced Cider Patterned Paper. The Stamp Set I used for this set is the Good Neighbours set and it is stamped using Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Old Olive and Bashful Blue Ink. The above photo shows the whole set including the suitcase.


The above photograph shows all the cards packed into the case, it has room for 2 different size cards, some decorated paperclips and pens and pencils.


This is a close up of the inside of the case, you can see in this picture that there are dividers in the box made out of Whisper White Cardstock... this would make a brilliant gift for a friend who was moving, although I didn't put any sentiments on the cards so they can be used for any occasion.


The small cards are 3 x 3 in size, the paperclips have been decorated using the Vintage Tags Saleabration Stamp Set and embossed. The back of the paperclips that you cannot see has the leaf shaped tree stamped onto the Scallop Circles.


The big cards are 4 1/2" x 5 1/2". The little houses fit nicely onto a 1 3/8" punched out circle which can then be matted onto the Scallop Circle.

I then moved on to making a little box set which would make a lovely gift for a friend. I used Real Red, Rose Red, Whisper White and Regal Rose Cardstock. The Stamp Sets I used are Happy Moments and Whimsical Words. The Patterned Paper is from the Kaleidoscope Set and the Pink Flamingo Set.

You cannot see very well, but the box is covered in a Medium Window Sheet which Stampin' Up! sell. I used Gold Cord to wrap around the box and Regal Rose Ribbon to decorate it.


These are the cards I made, they measure 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" and the chocolates in the middle of the box are Hersheys.


The above photo was taken after I had removed the window sheet cover from the box so you could see everything packed away. I used the pink colours as it is soon Valentines Day, but not everyone wants Valentine Cards so made them so they could be used for various occasions.

Well I hope you enjoyed your stop here. Your next stop is Dawn's blog. I know you will love her contributions to the blog hop..

Have a great Sunday, take care all.. xx

Stunning Linda. My favourite is the pink set, guess I'm just a girlie girl (and easily tempted by chocolate) but the mini suitcase is so sweet. Two fabulous gift sets.
