Crazy Crafters January Blog Hop - Sale-a-bration Products

Well Hello! Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop for January! This month we are excited to show off projects made with the brand new 2016 Sale-a-bration Catalogue! We hope you find great inspiration from all the beautiful projects.
You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Nicole Spicer - or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup at the end will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Nicole Spicer.

For our blog hop this month, I wanted to step out of my comfort zone a bit. Floral cards are just not usually my thing..... So what better challenge than the new 2016 Sale-a-bration items Flowering Fields stamp set and coordinating Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper. You'll find these on page 12 of the new 2016 Sale-a-bration Catalogue.

So here is my project when it's closed... It is a box made from the Envelope Punch Board! Adjusted for the depth of the items inside! I've also made a belly band so it stays shut without having to adhere it down.

I found a great tool for working out the dimensions, called Box Buster! Have you seen it? I hadn't until I stumbled across it on pinterest! The Crafty Owl has created a template to make life so much easier! I'll include a link to her site at the end of my post!

And here it is open.... hmm..... I wonder what is inside!?

Here are my four cards I've created to fit into my box. They are 4"x4" Happy Birthday cards. They feature some of the colours from the new Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper: Old Olive, Lost Lagoon, Calypso Coral and Hello Honey.

Here is a close up of each card, with the matching envelope I made too.

I hope you have enjoyed my project today! I was so thrilled with how they turned out. 

Below is the blog hop lineup. At the moment  you are visiting Nicole Spicer.

Here are the supplies I've used in my project today.
