Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights - January 2018


Welcome to Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlight - January 2018. This months theme is "Favorite Sale-A-Bration or Occasions Catalog Products". That was a hard one for me. There are several products that I just love. So I decided to go with the set that was my 1st choice to purchase. I have a obsession with gift card holders. Some of my family lives out of state. So when it comes to gift giving I reach for a gift card. That being said, they also have to be mailable. Now that the Holidays are behind us it's time to think about birthdays. My 1st need for a birthday gift is in February. I had to get busy on this.
Before we go any further I wanted to take a minute and ask for your vote. Once you have finished with this post just click on the button above and you will be taken to Kylie's blog where the voting gallery is located.  Look for my project photo and click on the heart in the top right hand corner when the hearts appear...Thank You!

When I was going through the Occasions Catalog I came to the Picture Perfect Party Suite. And it is just that, perfect. The colors are vibrant and fun. The Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper stack is just wonderful. The Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set is full of possibilities and perfect for my gift card holder. I also used the Labels to Love stamp set as well as the coordinating Everyday Label Punch. I hope you like what I have you today. You can find the card ingredients below the photo.

RemARKably Created Blog Hop: Theme - Bundle Up


Welcome to the RemARKably Creative Blog Tour. Our theme this time is Bundle Up. What does that mean ? It means we are showcasing Sets/Bundles. Stamp Sets that come with a punch or coordinating dies. I chose the Sure Do Love You Bundle. This bundle has the Sure Do Love You stamp set and the coordinating Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies.


The Box Die makes the cutest little box that you can use for the Whisper White Narrow Notes or candy. Mine have Reese's Peanut Butter Hearts in them (my DH's favorite candy). I also used the flower stamps and dies from the Bloomin' Love set. The beautiful Gold Foil paper is from the Painted with Love Specialty Designers Series Paper (DSP) pack. I made up 2 boxes so far, I will be making a few more for family. One is made with Calypso Coral Cardstock and the other is made from Melon Mambo Cardstock. The Calypso Coral Box has Melon Mambo flowers with Pear Pizzazz leaves and the Melon Mambo box has Calypso Coral flowers with Pear Pizzazz leaves. Both of the The boxes and the card have a Gold Embossed Heart ring around the cut out. I did the embossing 1st. Then used the Heart Die to cut the heart from the center. On the boxes I glued the DSP to the Box Front, embossed the Heart Ring then cut through both layers with the Heart Die. I backed the cut out with Window Sheet. I used Tear n Tape to assemble the box. The little "Candy Hearts" on the card are stamped in Melon Mambo. I added some Metallic Gold Thread under the hearts. The inside Sentiment comes from the Love You Still Stamp set. I thought the sentiment was perfect for the " Candy Hearts" on the front of the card.

Hope these ideas will spark a need to add to your Valentine stash this season. If so you can click on your choices from the product list at the bottom of this post and you will be taken to my online store to make your purchase. Don't forget the Hostess Code AWDRJ62S for this month and don't forget for every $50.00 purchase or $100.00 purchase (before tax & shipping) you get to choose something FREE from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I don't know anyone that does not like FREE stuff.

It's time to move on to Katrina Wolfe's blog to see what Bundle she has chosen to showcase for you. Thank you for stopping by and have a Happy Hop.
