January Pals Blog Hop - Occasions and Sale-a-bration

Welcome to our first blog hop of 2014. This month we are excited to show you the new products available in the Stampin' Up! Occasions Catalog as well as a preview of the free products you can earn through Sale-a-bration at the end of January. 

You may just be starting the blog hop or may have come from Lisa Gaines-Davis at Cherry St. Papertreats #25 on the Pals Hop. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all of the amazing creations.

I've been creating quite a bit using the Sale-a-bration products (because they are awesome) so I decided to switch gears and pull out some products from the Occasions Catalog. Aren't these colors fantastic? I know many of you are dealing with winter conditions so here's a touch of spring for you. Want more? Order the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper and create your own spring!

EZ Peasy Design Tips:

  • The flower and sentiment are part of the So Very Grateful stamp set and have been embossed here with Tangerine Tango Stampin' Emboss Powder.
  • A bit of detail has been added with a thin strip of Crushed Curry cardstock and the Small Scallop Stampin' Trimmer Rotary Cutting Blade. Perfect for when a project needs 'just a little something'.


  • Rounded corners add another small detail and are super simple to create using the Envelope Punch Board.
  • An additional banner, made with Designer Series Paper, just peeks out from behind the sentiment banner.
  • Accent flowers were punched using the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack with a Pearl Basic Jewel in the center and scrunched up add just a bit of whimsy.
