Kre8tors Blog Hop Occasions/Sale-A-Bration

Hello, and welcome to the first Kre8tors Blog Hop of 2019 
 You may of joined me from Tricia Butts post and awesome project, or you could be starting at my post, whichever way I'm very pleased to see you.

We are starting off the new year with a real challenge, a Tic-Tac-Toe or Noughts and crosses for us Brits with an 
Occasions/Sale-A-Bration theme.

Why not have a go at home with this challenge?  Choose a row up across or diagonal and make a project using whatever is in the box.

I have gone for Sequins, 3D Item and Heat emboss.

I've made a cute box with some cards inside.

This is a very simple, straight forward box to make.  I've covered my 3D item, with my box, my cake is stamped and then embossed with Stampin' Up Silver embossing powder and my sequins are attached to the back of my pretty ribbon.  All bases covered phew...

The cards are using the narrow cards and envelopes, this is the perfect size for them with a cheeky pen enclosed as well.  This would make a lovely gift for a family member or friend.

Cased box from CraftClare, changed it up a bit.

Here' a close up of my cake and ribbon, sequin combo.  This ribbon is beautiful and free! yes free with Sale-A-Bration at the moment.  

Do you see that cute owl peeking round the box, he's an oil burner Christmas Present, also perfect for card props!

I love how well the cards came together, this bundle is a great buy and has some really lovely sentiments.

 I love these ribbons
from this years Sale-A-Bration.

I have now been a member of the Kre8tors Blog Hop for a year and I've taken part every month I'm proud to display my badge.

I've made a short video on how to make the box.

and another video on the cards
