Hi! Welcome to my part in the UYS summer blog hop…you should have arrived from Christine’s blog. If you haven’t you can go back to the start of the hop on the UYS blog so you don’t forget anyone….all the links are at the bottom of this post too, just in case you get lost!
I love summer! Here in Calgary, in my house anyway, summer means camping and a lot of time outdoors. We have a lot of winter here in Canada..sometimes up to 8 or 9 months of it, so when that warm weather hits, you know we are outside!
Summer always makes me think of fun, bright colors. Everything seems so much more vibrant and alive! So for my project, I wanted to share with you some embellishments that I made in a class I took at Crop & Create with Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine. The class was hosted by one of my crafting idols Vicki Boutin! We were using her new line of products from American Crafts and they are just so fun…there are stickers and water color stickers, die cuts, crayons and oh so much more! These embellishments are made with fun, vibrant uses of color. They give you the happy feeling inside and that’s what summer is all about! Happy happy fun fun!! 🙂
We were learning to just have fun and create layers and textures to make some knock out embellishments. Don’t throw away those scraps…instead, grab them along with some adhesive, some pop dots and whatever little bits and bobs you might have around and create some amazing embellishments while you binge watch your favorite shows!
I hope you enjoy these and I hope you will create some of your own to use on some great layouts or cards. Now you are off to Majo’s blog to see what great summer fun she has for you but the list is below just in case you lose your way!
