Birthday Surprise!

I got my first Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalog order this week.  The Tutti-Frutti Suite was my favorite (although it was hard to narrow it down); I ordered a number of items from this suite and got the Tutti-Frutti Cards and Envelopes for FREE!  I just love Sale-A-Bration, I mean, who doesn’t like free stuff!

I have a rare weekend with nothing planned – it’s such a nice calming feeling to know that I don’t have to be anywhere the whole weekend. So I spent most of the day today in my stamp room doing a bit of cleaning and a lot of stamping. I found the box/card project idea here on Pinterest and loved, loved, LOVED it!  I made a number of Christmas-themed versions with darling paper ornaments in the box for clients at my *real* job.  They turned out really cute and the ornaments looked so sweet nestled in the little box (see a pic here). Soooo, with that idea as my guide and my new Tutti-Frutti Suite in front of me, I made the project below. It just makes me smile!!

The box looks so sweet with the tiny little strawberry on top and the Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon as the box closure. I haven’t decided yet what to put into it – maybe some chocolates or a handmade trinket.  This obviously isn’t a card for mailing, but perfect for a hostess gift or a place card gift for dinner guests.

Here’s a list of all of the products that I ordered from the Occasions catalog that were used in this project: Fruit Basket Bundle, Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper, Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-Backed Sequins. Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon, and remember the Tutti-Frutti Cards and Envelopes were free!

If you need a Occasions or Sale-A-Bration catalog to see this Suite and all the other incredible products, please contact me through this site or my Stampin’ Up! website.

In closing, there is actually one place I have to be….in front of the television to watch the Minnesota Vikings beat the New Orleans Saints on Sunday – SKOL VIKINGS!!

Happy Stamping everyone!!
