Sale-A-Bration Hop!...

It's time for another Pals Hop, and this time it's celebrating the fabulous items in this year's Sale-A-Bration catalog from Stampin' Up! A group of talented and creative folk have gotten together to showcase the versatility and fun of these wonderful products.

If you've hopped over from the fabulous Cards by Gina, I'm stop #9. Be sure to read to the end of this post for the full line-up of blogs on our hop!

For my Sale-A-Bration projects, I actually used several of the new items from the current SAB catalog of goodies. I knew I wanted to do something bright and fun, so here I have a sweet treat box and a matching card, both using the new set, Good Neighbors and this year's In-Colors.
For my neighborly card, I cut an oval window through some of the SAB's fab designer series paper in which I framed a popped out house and some floating clouds. The card is bright and cheery, making use of Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, and Bermuda Bay (not to mention some Pumpkin Pie). For my "awning," I used the new SAB border punch and added little punched dots along the way. For some extra fun, I tied the polka-dot ribbon like a man's tie, with a button topper.
Opening the card reveals the little scene inside. I left off a sentiment, as I thought this card would be appropriate for many occasions, but I left lots of space for writing in some words of welcome or thanks, or even get-well wishes!

To go with my card, I thought I would create a little treat box. The box itself is a shameless copy of a box that the awesome Ann Schach created for V-Day. You can find her instructions here. It reminds me of the boxes of candy you get at the movies...fill it with your own and you've saved about 10 bucks! For this box, I matched the colors of my card and used a complimentary sheet of designer series paper. The cute little house is framed in one of the new images from Vintage Labels. In further keeping with my card, I used the same fab punch on three sides, adding the little punched circles. So there you have it, a bright and cheery set to give away to, well, anyone!
