"Hula Hoop", Freehand Scraps July kit, went up for sale this morning and it is FAB! I believe all the design team girls are together on the fact it is a favorite. Definitely no "theme" to the kit, other than awesomeness (is that a word?) and new CHA goodies.
Aven heard the Blizzardmobile was going to be close so of course we had to swing by for a free oreo blizzard. I really wanted to cut ice cream cone shapes from my Slice, but didn't have that design card. I thought about purchasing an ice cream punch for 40% off....but then I saw these banner stickers and thought they made the perfect "cone".
Our church had a soldier salute in May, hence the "5.10" title, and the boys were beyond excited to see this helicopter there. I really liked using the more muted papers for this and the Girls' Paperie die cuts went along swell.
He only wants to be poolside. Just content as can be to sit along the side and observe. I wonder how long that will last..?! Used just the yellow tones of the Cosmo Cricket paper for the "suns" and the blue tones for the "waves". And might we all just be in shock here that I actually did some HAND WRITTEN journaling? yes, I gave the old typewriter a break ;)
Simple little card using Martha Stewart hydrangea punch over and over and over...
And this little job is quite random. But I like random ;) I had this piece of kraft paper leftover from cutting some Christmas tags and then used it as a scrap piece of paper to show a friend how to get the inked circles. Planned to just throw it away but then I saw some scraps from the kit and thought they could use a little home in those "negative" spaces that were left. A bit of sewing and SHOCK more hand written journaling and I called it good! Use those scraps!
In other news...I am THRILLED to be guesting on the October Afternoon blog for the month of July! Along with most every scrapper out there, they are a favorite company of mine and continue to release MUST HAVE lines.
