It's Friday! Time for another HHH hop!!! Today I have quite a few things to share so I will try to keep the chatting to a minimum. I had some girlfriends over yesterday for a day of scrapping and stamping and I ended up using all Unity stamps! We had so much fun that we are going to do it again today too so I need to post and run . . .
My first card I made for yesterday's Hip Hop challenge to use images found in the Great Outdoors. I grabbed my Tiny Giggle Grove stamp set and paired it with this yummy K & Co. patterned paper I just picked up from Michaels. It is a man tree and a lady tree and they are a "perfect pair"! Cute, huh?
My next card features the August Store Kit, 100% Happy and the new Tag It alpha. It was made for yesterday's Hip Hop challenge to use at least 3 buttons on our project. Not sure why this looks like a 4th of July card to me but it is supposed to be for a military promotion if that makes sense. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to use buttons as my "bingo chips" and I love the vintage look!
This card was made for the August Guest Designer challenge. We were to use the June or July KOTM. It is a 1, 2, 3 challenge. We were allowed only one stamp image (although we could use it repeatedly), two patterned papers, and three embellishments. I thought it would be fun to use this happy banner from the June KOTM. The center image is colored and cut out, then popped up on dimensionals. My patterned papers are from Cosmo Cricket (grid) and Papertrey Ink (bitty dots). My embellishments are the ribbon and button from PTI and the "birthday" rubon from SU!
I also had an opportunity to scrap yesterday so I finished up this page, the fourth in a series, from our cruise last summer. I used SU! Pumpkin Pie and Kiwi Kiss cardstock and Making Memories Travel collection patterned paper, chipboard buttons and paper flowers. The four corner circles were stamped with images from the Time for Travel stamp set. I added a bit of ribbon from Michaels to accent the photo as well.
The last thing I have to share with you today is a page I made celebrating my daughter's (and out family's) love of books. I used SU! black cs as my base and added some Bo Bunny patterned paper. I used stamps from the customer kit Hodgepodge of Happiness colored using Copic markers. Both the tiny letter stickers and the corkboard sticker are from Making Memories. I popped the photos up on dimensionals and added the little bookmark and buttons as accents.
Thanks for stopping by today! Enjoy the rest of your Hop!!! *wink*
