Welcome to the Occasions Mini Blog Hop brought to you
by Stampin Addicts, a positively creative, positively Stampin' Up! website.
Friday, December 30 - January 1
The hop officially begins at noon today so all of the links may not be working just yet. Be sure to come back for lots of inspiration!
If you arrived here from Sara Mattson-Blume's blog, you are at the right place. Thanks for hanging in there - you are almost to the end! But don't worry if this is your first stop. The hop goes full circle just follow the links.
Since every participant must choose a different Occasions Mini product to highlight, I chose the Simply Sent Create and Keep Kit. It is one of those products that you may just pass over - I know I would have! I am so glad I didn't because it makes such an awesome gift!!
The Create and Keep Kit contains:
- A precut Organizer/Box that you assemble with Sticky Strip.
- 4 Colored Dividers
- 10 preprinted colored cards
- 10 designer Envelopes
- Self Adhesive die cut accents
Rather than explain it - let me show you!!
This is the assembled box. I added the Pear Pizzazz Ribbon and Early Espresso button to show you how this gift can be "jazzed up" with your own embellishments. Ribbon and buttons are not included in the kit.
You can see the dividers with labeled tabs which separates the cards into 4 different categories. I added a fifth category to show you how this can be personalized to fit the need! The envelopes are in the back of the box and the little velcro tab in the front keeps it closed.
I had a blast creating the cards using the provided accents. No cutting or adhesive necessary!
All of the cards come with a pattern on the front - the backs are plain and the insides are white.
The die cut accents have a pattern as well. There are 5 colors: Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso and Pear Pizzazz
I had enough accents leftover to make one more card using regular cardstock (mine) for the base. I also added some Large Basic Pearls (also mine) from the Occasions Mini.
I plan on giving this adorable box of cards as a gift to my aunt but I can see it being a great card organizer for myself. It is also a perfect project for a new stamper or someone who thinks they aren't very creative. Lots of possibilities!!
Now on to the final inspirational stop of the Blog Hop - Yapha Mason's blog. Enjoy!
Until next time.
