Welcome to the Pals’ February blog hop. We’re so glad you’re here because it’s “Time to Sale-A-Brate”! Our Design Team created projects using Sale-A-Bration items to inspire you. You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I have used a variety of stamp sets, most are from Sale-A-Bration, and created a very unique card, for me anyway.  I tend to do cards with different folds and bright colors.  Today’s card is definitely a Different Fold!


So Hoppy Together, 149725


Aren’t these frogs adorable?  I love their positions and features.  I wanted to make something different for today’s Blog Hop and decided to finally try the box card.  I have had it on my desk forever it seems.  You will love to know that it is really very easy to make.

Here is a close up of the frogs.


So Hoppy Together, 149725


And here is how it looks when you would pull it out of the envelope.  Yes, it fits in a regular A2 envelope.  It measures 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  Woohoo!!



In addition to the frog stamp set , which is So Hoppy Together, I used another SAB set that is new.  It is More Than Words.  Another new item is the DSP in the photo above.  It is a reverse side of the Painted Season DSP coming in March.  I forgot to mention that the black checked paper is a reverse side of the Botanical Butterfly DSP, one of the SAB items.  Although I did not photograph it well, the new punch coming also in March is the Story Label Punch.  It is used on the left side flap with the Happy Birthday.

A couple of the sentiments came from Piece of Cake and Incredible lIke you.  I was trying to get coordinating sentiments, and may have gone a tad overboard!  Another new item coming in March is framelit dies that match the frogs!  That would have made me happy, as I fussy cut the frogs today!  Stay tuned for these great products beginning March 1.

Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  I will prepare a template, and maybe a video (once I get the nerve) on the box card.  It truly is so much easier than I originally thought.  As always, the supply list is at the bottom of the post.
