Summer Theme Blog Hop

Welcome to our Blog Hop!

In celebration of Summer Vacation we are holding this blog hop that we have put together, we welcome international participation on this hop. There will be 3 ways you can win!

You can have a chance at winning the candy by following our blog hop and collecting the letters from the Scrapbooking Elements along the way. Once you have reached the last blog and collected all the letters (some blogs may have 2 scrapbook elements so make sure you check the blogs very carefully) unscramble the letters to reveal a well-known Summer theme song. If you wish to be entered into the Summer Theme Blog Hop Drawing make sure you post your answers onto the main blog page here.

Following the link from the last blog, post your comment on our main Blog with your answers and a link back to your blog so we can contact the lucky winners. Sign up to the Scrappers Delight Group as we have many give-aways and monthly swaps and challenges going on throughout the year.

The hop will close on July 8, 2011 and the winners will be announced on July 11, 2011.

Father's Day

We finally got together to celebrate Father's Day! Sunday was such a busy day with volleyball tournaments, etc. So, I thought I'd share the card I made for my Dad with you.

I usually make girl-y cards for my mom or other friends who are women, so, this was fun to do a masculine one for a change.

Here it is:

I just received these cute stamps last week and couldn't wait to get my hands on them. Edwin with the Butterfly is just chillin' on the nice, big mushrooms.

Here's an up close look of Edwin:

Purple and Yellow

Good evening!
I finally finished the card I've been slowly working on as I have had a chance. I used purple and yellow, which are complementary colors, and I love putting them together.

I am going to enter this into my very first challenge, being held at Make It Colourful.

I used the Sew Easy products from We R Memory Keepers to sew the edges of this. I really love these products, especially since I don't have a sewing machine. They have many different heads for it that you can change out to make different designs.

This was also my first attempt at making hat pins. I love the look of these and how it adds a special element to the card. I found all of the supplies to make them at Hobby Lobby. 

I really like this Tilda Blowing Hearts!!! Actually, I like all of the Magnolia stamps. They are all so unique and sweet! You really can't go wrong with any of them!

Here's an up close look at the sewing, my tag that says love you, the hat pins and the flowers for Wild Orchid Crafts.

Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts

Designer Paper: K&Company - Julianne Specialty Paper

Other Paper: Stampin' Up Very Vanilla, Elegant Eggplant, More Mustard

Sentiment: Stampin' Up Valentine Defined set

Tag: Creative Memories tag punch, Stampin' Up Elegant Eggplant Classic Stampin' Pad

Copics used:
Face - E000, E00, E01, E11, E13, RV02
Hair - E55, E57, E59
Dress, Socks, Wings and Hearts - BV00, BV02, BV11, BV13, Y21, YR31
