Sale-a-Bration Blog Hop

Welcome to my Blog Hop post!

Me and 13 other demonstrators in Julie's Jems Team  have each created projects using Sale-a-Bration products and we are sharing them today on our blogs.

All you have to do is hop from one blog to the next using the buttons at the bottom of this post and enjoy the crafty loveliness!  (If you've hopped here from Caroline's page, you'll have seen some fabulous creations already!)

Today my project showcases the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Papers. They are a pack of 12 sheets of 12" by 12" fantastic quality double-sided scrapbook papers - 12 different designs altogether.

I love these papers because they are so fresh and flowery - perfect for spring! I have been using these to create all sorts of things, but I wanted to share some of my favourite projects with you. Firstly my spring flower pot...

 I have made these before with different papers back in September. The 3D flower were made using the pansy punch. Each flower is made up of 3 punched pansies, and a piece of wire was pushed through the bottom layer and secured with a little hot glue (a hot glue gun is invaluable for projects like this!). I sponged the edges to give them definition.

I decorated an old coffee tin for the pot. Now I have flowers that will last all year long!

Here are a couple more ideas...

I covered a wooden 'love' decoration with the papers (my favourite design in the pack!), and also a money tin. I added some chalkboard paper cut with the labels die so people can write what they are saving for!

The pack of papers is worth £9.95 and are not for sale, but you can get them for FREE when you spend £45 until the end of March. They are just one of the many products you can choose for every £45 spend including stamp sets, a punch, card kits, and even digital sets. Keep hopping to see more ideas!!

I hope you like my project - please leave a comment before you hop onto to the next blog, which is Karen's!
