Sale-o-bration Blog Hop: Just Football!

Welcome to Lily's Ink Pad and the Stampin' Addicts Sale-a-bration Blog Hop! You may have just come from Allison Ohran's blog, or maybe you found me on your own, but you are in a for a treat. After you read my blog, you can travel to Lisa Naples' blog and from there see other demonstrator projects using Sale-a-bration projects in a big circle!



WHOOO HOOO! I love Sale-a-bration each year. Who doesn't like FREE STAMPS! This year Stampin' Up! has started something new-- we can choose from a list of current stamps from the catalog! How Cool!

I chose to use the stamp set Just Football as my husband is a huge football guy. Not just football- Raider Football. Me, I really don't care much at all. In fact the year, we first met, I didn't even know the Superbowl was on the day he asked me about i! Ever since, the annual tradition of watching the Superbowl is upheld by Bubba with me around somewhere stamping. To honor this tradition, I decided to use the Just Football stamp set:



Stamps: Just Football
Paper: Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Basic Gray
Ink: Old Olive, Creamy Caramel, Basic Gray
Accessories: Big Shot, Pennant Die, Sticky Strip, Paper Snips, Corner Rounder Punch, Round Tab Punch, scallop punch, 1 3/8 Circle Punch, Scallop Die, Felt, Paper Cutter with Scoring Blade, Stampin' Up! Journaling marker, Two Tags Bigz Die

The star decoration idea came from a lamp I found at store made of paper. I knew I could recreate it with the pennant die. Come back next week for a tutorial on how to make it!


I also made invites for Bubba's Party. He doesn't like things too fancy, so I kept it simple. Plus, if I was to send them out, I needed quick and easy. I made the football pop up by cutting a circle into a spiral. I used my marker to write the info on the invite, because it seemed more personal that way.


The food tags are essential for people like me with food issues, so we can identify what we plan to put in our mouths! I simply used the Two Tags Die to cut out a tag and folded it on it's crease, so that it stands! The scallop circles are for cupcakes or cake decorations. The felt scallop was a quick way to make coasters that can easily be washed or discarded after the game! I used classic ink; craft would have been better.

I hope you are inspired by this blog hop and enjoy your Sale-a-bration. Be sure to check out the next stop at Lisa Naples' Blog.
