Sweet Strawberry Hello Gift Set – Pals Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

For today’s project, I used my current favorite bundle from the January-June 2021 catalog…Sweet Strawberry.  This stamp set and coordinating punch are aptly named as they create just the “sweetest” cards and 3D projects.  I know I’ll be using this bundle well beyond the catalog period!

I used another new product for the coordinating gift box…the Love You Always Treat Boxes.  These boxes are such a generous size, so you could fit many different treats or gifts in them and they’re super sturdy.  The embellishing possibilities are endless!

I frequently want to give a little something to friends, neighbors and co-workers.  This box will now be my go-to for this.

    Coming from Louisiana, the Strawberry Capitol of the world I couldn’t help but LOVE your card AND box. To top it all off my kitchen, dining room, and den are decorated in red with black and white buffalo check. So, you hit the bullseye on all of it. Beautiful Inspiration.

    I love the strawberries with the black and white check. Beautiful!?

  23. I just love it! Where did you purchase the black and white checker paper?

  24. I just love this card! Where did you purchase the black and white checker paper?

    • Thank you, Suzanne! I have such a large stash of paper, especially plaids and ginghams (my favorites). I believe I purchased the black and white plaid Hobby Lobby.

  25. Beautiful card and box! Love the colors together! I have been on the fence about getting this set, thinking I wouldn’t use it much. After seeing these items, it is on my list for my next order.

    I wish SU would keep the black and white checked paper, I know after seeing a card like this, that paper would fly out of the warehouse!

    • Thanks Vicky! I’m not opposed to using non-SU paper if I think it will work. I know you’ll love the strawberry bundle.

      • I put a suggestion into SU about getting and keeping plaid or buffalo check paper in the annual catalog as it is such a timeless and versatile paper.We will see how that works lol

  26. Very pretty! This is such a classic color combination, and I love the way the strawberries just pop on the checkerboard.
