Scallop Tag Topper Box

I've got lots on great new products to play with at the moment after receiving my saleabration order (got to take advantage of those fantastic freebies!).  Two of my newest favorite products have to be the scallop tag topper and the Bigz flower die, both from the 'Occasions' Catalogue.  Above I've combined the two to make this gorgeous little box that I think would be great as a wedding or engagement favour box.   What do you think?

Art With Heart Blog Hop

Hi there, today I’m excited to bring you a blog hop with some of the awesome ladies in the Art With Heart Stampin’ Up! Team. Today is the first day of the brand new Occasions Stampin’ Up! Seasonal Catalogue in Australia and also the very first day of our biggest promotion of the year, Saleabration! If you place an order with me during Saleabration, you can choose a free item with every $90 you spend in one transaction. There are lots of fabulous free items to choose from (ask me for a brochure and an Occasions Catalogue) and the promotion goes right through until March 31st.
Better still, become part of our awesome fun, friendly and supportive Art With Heart team. We have a really large team Australia wide that has been around since Stampin’ Up! came to Australia. We have a very active team forum and also have in person stamp days, challenges, card swaps, product shares and more. When you join during Saleabration, you get to choose whatever you like from our catalogues, but pay just $169 for $255 worth of product (that’s a 33% discount!). It’s quick and easy to join online too. Ask me how!
