Hi Stampers and Crafters!

Welcome to Stamp It's Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop. If you are already on the hop, you have come from Sheri Meyer's  blog and wasn't her projects just abolutely awesome! If you have just arrived, welcome! To navigate throughout the hop, simply click the "Next" and "Previous" buttons to flow through the hop.

More info later in the post.

Today's hop is a total sneak peek of some products that can be found in Stampin' Up!'s New Occasions catalog.

Here is a Wedding Card that I created using the Rose Wonder Photopolymer Stamp Set. 

For this card, I chose to heat emoboss with Gold Embossing Powder onto vellum paper. Heat embossing is one of my favoirte techniques and when I saw this stamp set, it really called out my name....I have so many ideas that can be done can't wait to share more of them with you. This stamp set has 14 stamps of which 11 are greetings. It's so versatile to use.

This stamp set actually can be purchased as a bundle with it's coordinating framlit set. 

Now on to my Sale-A-Bration share...

During Sale-A-Bration, qualifying orders recieve FREE products from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. For every $50 you spend (before tax and shipping), you get one item from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. One of the awesome FREE products that will be available January 05-March 31 (There will be a release of more products February 15th) is this beautiful Wildflower Fields Desinger Series Paper. 12 Sheets (2 ea of 6 double sided 12" x 12" designs)

In the month of January, one of the things that I love to give my customers are calendars. Here are 5 little Post It Note/Claendars that I have created using the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper.  The flower accent is called Blossom Bunch Punch and it is in the New Occasion Catalog.

Here is a look at the inside of the calendar:

To make this calendar:
1.  Cut card stock at 9-1/4" x 3-3/8".
2.  Score at 1-3/4", 2-1/4", 5-1/2", and 6". Crease all score lines.
3.  Cut Designer Series Paper 3-1/4" x 3-3/8"
4.  Cut Designer Series Paper 1-3/4" x 3-3/8"
5.  Punch a hole inbetween the first two score lines. Do this on the left and right sides of your card stock.
6.   On the shortest side from the left edge to the 1-3/4" score line, punch the corners using the Cuurvy Corner Trio Punch (Hoorah!!! That punch carried over from the Holiday Catalog). 
7.  Punch two corners of the  1-3/4" x 3-3/8"  Designer Series Paper. Adhere to card stock. 
8.  Adhere 3-1/4" x 3-3/8" Designer Series Paper to the front bottom of the card stock.
9.  Adhere post it notes and calendar to the card stock.
10. Place a piece of velcro to open/shut your calendar
11.  Thread the ribbon through the two punch holes and tie a knot.
12. Create the flower accent piece with the Blossom Punch Bunch and attach to the flap of the calendar using Stampin' Dimensionals. Add a Candy Dot to accent the flower.

This month we have three very special guest bloggers:

Be sure to visit their blogs and check out their awesome creations!!!

I love's my favorite holiday and being able to give gifts and hopefully see the smiles on peoples faces. Today is my boy's last day of school before winter break. Today's share is a project I worked on as a gift that my boys could take to school and give their teacher for Christmas. A Santa Candy Sleigh and a coordination Christmas Card.

For Santa's Sleigh, I took a Kit Kat Bar and wrapped Gold Trim around the bar. Glued the Kit Kat bar to the candy canes using Tear and Stick Adhesive Tape. I adhered the Hershey Nuggets onto the Kit Kat Bar and stacked them on each other using Glue Dots (I was tempted to use a Hot Glue Gun, but I decided not to in fear that the heat would melt the chocolate). For the ribbon, I grabbed the only red ribbon that I had --- Red Cotton Ribbon and I made the bow using Stampin' Up!'s Bow Builder Punch.

For the card, I used a very simple layout featuring the red stripped Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!'s Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper. I decided to jazz up the background and simply embossed it with the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder. The presents are from the Your Presents Stamp Set. I will have the complete list of supplies on the bottom of my post.
