Sale a Bration 2014 Sneak Peeks

You have probably reached me via Connie’s blog…  and if not, be sure to travel backwards on the tour and visit her! 🙂

First Up… I created a gift basket with cute supplies from the Dollar Spot at Target, and I decorated the box with new Washi Tape, new Twine, a new gold clothespin and a new Flower Punch!


I was thrilled with how well these cute items coordinated with our new gold Washi Tape!

New Sneak Peek Stampin’ Up! Products I used:

  • Watercolor Wonder Washi Tape (gold!!)
  • Gold Baker’s Twine
  • Mini Metallic Clothespins (gold and silver)
  • Petite Petals flower punch
  • Happy Watercolor stamp set (“you make me HAPPY” stamp)



My 2nd new sneak peek project for you, shown above and below:  One of my Luv 2 Stamp Group downline “challenged” me to create a Christmas  card with the new Petite Petals flower set and matching punch.. and I thought.. HMMMM, ok, game on!

Do you like it?  I think it turned out very Christmasy and so fresh and fun! I also used the Stampin’ Up! Notecards and the Season of Style Washi Tape.

New Sneak Peek Stampin’ Up! Products I used:

  • Petite Petals flower punch
  • Petite Petals Stamp Set


Tag-topper-punch-to-fromAnd here is a little bonus project for you showcasing a new punch from the Occasions Catalog and a new punch you can earn as a Free Sale a Bration item in 2014!

New Sneak Peek Stampin’ Up! Products I used:

This new Scalloped Tag Topper punch is probably my most favorite accessory in the Occasions Catalog!  Just cut your paper to 2″ wide, insert and punch.. voila… super cute tag!  I rounded the bottom corners with the corner rounder punch on the Envelope Punch Board.

The 2nd new punch you might notice is the BANNER Punch, available starting Jan. 28 as a free Sale a Bration gift with your $50 purchase!
