Happy 2018!   I hope your holidays were great.  It is now time to celebrate the start of both the new Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration.  I cannot think of a better way to start off than with the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop!  I am featuring one of my favorite bundles, Charming Cafe.  


Honestly, the Charming Cafe bundle was not even on my radar until I really looked at the samples in the Occasions catalog and was intrigued by the dies and started thinking about all the possibilities.  Once I started working with the bundle I was indeed charmed by it.


I paired the Charming Cafe bundle with the Sale-A-Bration choice Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes on page 14 of the Sale-A-Bration catalog.  I think sometimes it is easy to overlook the non stamp Sale-A-Bration offerings.  The pack contains 16 pre-printed card bases (4 each of 4 designs) and coordinating envelopes.  I am featuring 3 of the designs on today's blog post.  


In case you are not familiar with Sale-A-Bration let me tell you about it.  During Sale-A-Bration for every $50 you spend (before shipping and tax) you get to choose a free product from the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  New this year there are even bigger rewards when you spend $100 (before tax and shipping).   The Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes are one of the choices at the $50 level.


Did you notice that all the cards also feature a cute little bow?  These bows are from the 2017-19 In Color Bitty Bows.  


Are you wondering why I did this?  Well, if you order the Charming Cafe bundle and the In Color Bitty Bows you would qualify for a $50 Sale-A-Bration reward and could get the Tutti-Frutti Cards & Envelopes.  Pretty cool, huh?


I really like using the pre-printed Tutti-Frutti card bases.  It eliminates some of the decisions and cutting and gets me to the fun part of designing and coloring a lot quicker.  Hope you enjoyed this look at the Charming Cafe bundle and the Tutti-Frutti Card Bases.  

Now it is time for you to hop on over to see what the talented Jenilee Pauls has created for you!
