Casually Crafting Blog Hop – Sale-A-Bration

Welcome to our monthly Casually Crafting Blog Hop, This month we are celebrating Sale-A-Bration. For this project I have based my projects on the Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper, which if free with a £45 minimum spend during Sale-A-Bration. Sale-A-Bration products will be available from 5th January – 28th February 2021.

Celebrate Sale-A-Bration

During the first two months of the January – June 2021 Mini Catalogue, 5th January – 28th February 2021, Sale-A-Bration products can be earned – one product credit for each multiple of £45 spend.

I chose to use the Oh So Ombre Designer Series paper for my project this month, which has a lovely combination of plain and patterned ombre Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Rococo Rose 6 inch papers.

Project Colours

With the Oh So Ombre DSP I also featured a sneak peak of the Simply Succulents Bundle, which at £50.25 in the January – June 2021 mini catalogue, will automatically qualify for one Sale-A-Bration product if purchased within the Sale-A-Bration sales period. I used Old Olive, Rococo Rose and Blackberry Bliss blends to colour my succulents, with Blackberry Bliss ink for my sentiments.

As this only featured, one of the colours in the DSP, I decided to create a card which featured all the colours and patterns of the DSP. Here is my creation.

This was created from 3 sheets of A4 blackberry bliss, measured along the short edge – scored at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm and 20cm.

Then measured along the long edge, One piece cut at just under 20cm, the second and third pieces cut at just under 15cm, then another cut at 5cm. This leaves the remaining 3 pieces from each card at just under 10cm. The ‘boxes’ were created and stuck together to form the structure. I also used 8 sheets of the DSP, one of each colour and pattern, there are 48 sheets in the pack so there is plenty left for other projects. The paper layers were cut to size in my desired colour combinations and stuck to the structure, note as I also decorated the back of the card I used nearly all of the 8 sheets.

I decorated with whisper white small daisies, the centres cut with the retired 1/2″ punch (small circles can be found in a number of die sets), with the sentiment from Happiest of Birthdays – if you are going to send a belated birthday card, you might as well make it special – right?

The inspiration for this card was taken from our monthly crafting session, designed by Sara Sayers, and fellow Casual Crafter blogger (see below), here is my version of her card.
