Jems Sale-A-Bration Blog Hop

I can't believe it's nearly a year since I last blogged! Where has the time gone? I haven't been idle though, I've regularly updated my Facebook page & that is where I post details of my forthcoming classes. So if you would like to follow me on Facebook please click on the link on my sidebar.

Anyway . . . . . . . . . . on to today's Jems Blog Hop.

Only a couple more days until Sale-A-Bration 2014 gets underway closely followed by the launch of the Spring/Summer Catalogue. Believe me when I say you will not be disappointed by either!! The freebies in this years Sale-A-Bration are the best ever. So much to choose from & all FREE with a spend of £45.

You should have arrived at my blog from the lovely Allie Jolliffes' Blog so should be half way through our blog hop. If you have found your way straight here & would like to start at the beginning of the blog then hop straight to Karyns' Blog

I love it when stamp sets have a matching punch so I was so excited to see the Banner Blast stamp set & the matching Banner Punch. You would get both of these items free if you spent £90.

The stamp set has 10 stamps altogether, 7 banner stamps & 3 little accent stamps one of which, the star, you can see on this card.

It's one of my closest friends 50th birthday today & she's asked for cash from all her friends so she can buy something special. She told me she has a gold box to keep all her money in so I thought I'd go with the gold theme for her gift. I was just going to put the cash inside her card but when trawling through Pinterest I came across a fab money wallet using the banner blast set & vellum. I've unashamedly cased it as I loved everything about it.

I thought it was a great idea to use the Washi tape to seal the sides of the vellum! Have you noticed the new 'gold' Washi tape, that's available in the new Spring/Summer Catalogue along with the set that the longer banner comes from, Language Of Love & the little gold sequins on the gift bag. We were lucky to be given all three of these products for free at Convention.
The simple money wallet pulls out of the vellum envelope & the money sits inside this.

 I then decorated a little gift bag to match.

I hope you like what I've done with the Banner Blast set & punch. I was really pleased with how these turned out & I know my friend will like them as she loved shiny/blingy things!

Right, now it's on to Angies' Blog for the next part of our hop. Enjoy!
