Stampin' Addicts 2014 Sale-a-bration Blog Hop

Happy Sale-a-bration Time! Come on and enjoy another Stampin' Addicts Blog Hop where my demonstrator friends and I post our projects featuring the lastest Stampin' Up! products. You'll get great ideas with every single Sale-a-bration product in this year's catalog!

If going in order, you came from Tina's Paper Art Garden featuring the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. Weren't they great projects? If you are going backwards, you came from Kim's Stitchin n Stampin' on Paper where she will show you the Blanner Blast Stamp Set. (LOVE it!)

Here at Lily's Ink Pad, I'm featuring the Good as Gold kit. Here is all I made with a single kit (and nothing else):

The Good as Gold kit comes with supplies to make 8 cards that look just like the top middle one. I made it to show how easy it was, and cute, BTW. Although, I've always been a silver fan, I'm liking the pop the gold has!

The center bottom project is not a card, but a mini-scrapbook:

I made a chain of  5 envelopes by gluing one flap to the back of the next. I then used two cards to cover two envelopes with a bit of the Sahara Sand envelope to contrast the dots. I then added pictures I printed (so kind of a poor quality) of my neice and I goofing off at her last photo shoot with Unka Bubba. I added accents from the kit, trimming the French and German Banners as I saw fit to add some fun. I used the Envelope Liners for the gold mat on the pictures. See that final panel? It has a smaller (3x3) picture on it and it's also special. Youc an pull on the tabs on the right and reveal, a full page:

 The second to last envelope made the perfect pocket for the page and reveals a quick kiss from Clare. I love this and thought of giving it away, but think I am going to put it on my desk at work. 

I wanted to use as much of the kit as I could, and I have trouble following directions, so I played with the cardfronts and how I could accent them:

I tried repeatedly to get a great picture, but that gold is super reflective and I couldn't get one with all the cards showing well. My favorite is the top middle. I don't usually go for so much flash, but that's fun!

I hope you enjoyed my projects. I know you will enjoy Kim's Banner Blast projects at Stitchin n' Stampin on Paper! Or go backwards to Tina's Decorative Dots projects at Paper Art Garden.

You can also join us all on the Stampin' Addicts Discussion Thread!
