January Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop for January. This month we are excited to be showcasing the gorgeous freebies you can get as part of the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) promotional catalog. We hope you find great inspiration from the projects. You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog or you may have come from the previous person on the list. Be sure to click on the next person in the list to continue your journey on this blog hop.

This month we have very exciting news that we have the famous Connie Stewart playing along with us!! We are thrilled Connie is playing along with the Crazy Crafters this month as she is VERY talented and has a following all around the world. Thanks Connie!! x

So if you have been following my blog lately, you will have noticed that I am completely in love with the Sky is the Limit stamp set (& yes I couldn't help myself, I used one little stamp from the set), but I am showcasing the Memories in the Making Project Life Specialty Card Collection in this project. I haven't used them before but I was thrilled when I got the packet & had a look through, as there are so many beautiful little cards in there & they come in two different sizes.

I have used two of the smaller Project Life cards today, the Watermelon Wonder card which is matte with little shiny hearts all over it & the white acetate card with the clear heart shape in the middle:

I have used a Mint Macaron card base & the paper is from the Pretty Petals Designer Paper Series (DSP) Stack. I have used foam tape to make a contained pocket in between the two Project Life cards & then filled it with white pearlescent sugar beads from my stash, so it's a little shaker card.

I have also used the What I Love stamp set from the SAB catalog with Watermelon Wonder ink to stamp the sentiments on the front of the card & then I have used the Washi Label Punch to cut them out. I have propped them up on Dimensionals.

The little flowers & leaves on the inside of the card are also from the What I Love stamp set & I have used the Calypso Coral & Mint Macaron inks to stamp them. I have used Watermelon Wonder to stamp the sentiment, which is from the Sky is the Limit stamp set.

Here is the list of people taking part in the Blog Hop this month:

Below is a list of products I have used. The Project Life cards weren't available to go into the list, so here's a little pic of them to tempt you!
