I decided to create my own bundle to help inspire you so I included the following items:

Love You to The Moon Clear Stamp Set, Item #133143, Price $17.95
Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper, Item#130145, Price $10.95
Bracket Label Punch, Item #132153, Price $15.958.95
Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon, Item # 126845, Price $8.95

For my Free Sale-a-Bration item I choose the Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder.

I choose these items for my bundle since you can use them for lots of different occasions so they are really

 My first project is a card that uses everything in the bundle.  The cardbase is Bermuda Bay and I added a layer of Going Gray cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Decorative Dots Textured Embossing Folder.  I used some Summer Starfruit Cardstock to mat the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper and added some Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon around the DSP layer.  The greeting is from the Love You to the Moon stamp set and I colored in the stamp with Stampin' Write Marker's before punching the image out with the Label Bracket Punch.  This punch has a great shape and lots of our stamp images fit inside which makes it great.

For my second project I decided to make a fun treat holder using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch (these new punches are AWESOME!).  All I did was take a piece of 2" wide cardstock and punched both ends and scored using the Simply Scored Board in the middle for the width of the candy.  For the decoration I added a small strip of Silver Glimmer Paper and another pattern from the Beyond Birthday DSP.  I used the same stamped image and punched it out and attached it with a dimensional.  The final touch was to use some of the Raspberry Ripple ribbon to tie the top together.   To help ensure the candy stays in place I did use a little piece of Sticky Strip on the bottom.  This little treat is so cute and you could use it for all types of occasions.

 I hope you enjoyed this months projects and remember, snowy weather is perfect for crafting, so have some fun and get a little inky.  Click on the "Next" button below to go to Cynthia's blog, she always has wonderful projects to share!
