Pootler’s Blog Hop

Pootlers Blog Hop-001

To day is a very special post as its part of a blog hop between members of the Pootler’s, and the theme of this blog hop is anything from the Spring/Summer catalogue or Sale-a-Bration brochure.

As I covered some of my favourite products from the spring/summer catalogue in my last products of the month post I decided to focus on sale-a-bration for this month.

So for my project I decided to create a special welcome pack decorated using only products available during Sale-a-Bration for anyone who hosts a party with me between now and the 31st of March.

Best Day Ever

Everything in this picture is available from stampin up (except the coins and the notebook).


So to start I took a Petite Cafe Gift Bag (they come in packs of 10 and can be found on page 35 of the Spring/Summer catalogue) and stamped it with the little spotty stamp from the Best Day Ever stamp set using Chocolate Chip ink. The sentiment and flower are also from the Best Day Ever stamp set and stamped on Whisper White cardstock using Coastal Cabana ink.

The flower was cut by hand and I used the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch on the sentiment and added a little of Calypso Coral ribbon to the top. The ribbon is part of the Best Year Ever Accessory pack and comes with Crushed Curry, Coastal Cabana ribbon and matching buttons.


Stampin Up don’t do A7 notebooks so I bought them from amazon hereThe outside of the notebook was really boring so I spruced it up using Crushed Curry cardstock for the base measuring 3″ wide by 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/8 and 4 1/4 for the depth of the notebook (for best results use Fast Fuse for sticking I ran out while making 10 of these and snail wasn’t strong enough to stick the card base to the notebook).

The front of the notebook uses a piece of Best Year Ever DSP (pack of 12 double sided sheets available as free gift during Sale-a-Bration) cut to 2 3/4″ by 3 7/8″. The sentiment is stamped using Coastal Caban ink and is from the Simply Wonderful stamp set another free Sale-a-Bration stamp set and is finished of with a rhinestone.


This lovely little bag of goodies is actually made from Real Red Goodie Gear Simply Created Kit which is currently on the clearance rack but you can buy these little cellophane bags at different sizes from Stampin Up. So to make it I just took one of the empty bags put in some coins and tied it with the Bermuda Bay Bakers Twine it comes with. The tag is already precut as part of the kit so I just stuck a scrap of Best year ever DSP on it. The sentiment is from the Simply Wonderful stamp set stamped in Coastal Cabana, the little banner is also pre cut shape from the kit.

We’ve got some Blog Candy up for grabs – to be in with a chance of winning a bundle of goodies, including the Best Day Ever stamp set, the Best Year ever paper set and the co-ordinating ribbons and buttons, all you have to do is work your way through the hop before midday on Sunday and leave a comment on every blog.  The winner will be chosen at random and announced in the Pootles Craft Forum and here on Tuesday, 3d March
