Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop ~ Summer

Welcome to the  Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop,  we are  group of international Stampin UP! demonstrators sharing our ideas and creativity with you.

You will have either arrived from  Rochelle’s  post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME.  This month we have a  ‘Summer ‘  theme.  Summer always evokes flowers in my mind so I focused on using the flower stamp sets and punches Stampin’ Up has available.

Once again I have chosen to use a 12 x 12 page – mainly because Stampin’ UP! has 12 x 12 card stock in all its colors which gives me a fantastic choice but also because they have the 12 x 12 Page Protectors and Albums.

Happy Tails ~ Just Fur You Card

Hello Paper Crafting Friends ~ welcome back to my corner of the world.

I am a dog person – my puppies, Miss Daisy Mae and CiCi are always close by, sometimes you might hear them when I am making a video ~ one of them usually manages to let out a little ‘woof’ or scratch at the study  door in the middle of recording 🙂

So The Happy Tails Stamp Set with the coordinating Dog Builder Punch is a great set for the fellow dog lovers out there.  There are some cute greetings as well, I have used the ‘Just fur You’ one, I think the ‘Keep Calm and Wag On’ will be useful as well as “So sorry for your Loss’ for those sad times when a beloved pet goes to the Rainbow Bridge.

Sweet & Simple ~ Beautiful You

Today’s card is another in my Sweet and Simple series where I have set myself a little challenge using a small amount of equipment and supplies – kind of like one of those cookery shows where you are given 3 or 4 ingredients and you have to turn it into a spectacular 4 course meal!

Last week our daughter-in-law celebrated a birthday, she lives in the UK with her family so we don’t get to see her too often.  Since last week was spring break for the schools in the UK, she, our son and their daughters went on holiday to one of the islands off the coast of Spain – making a really lovely birthday treat!

The stamp set is Beautiful You – I have had this in my stash for some time  but this is the first time I have used it, it has three images of women and a number of greetings and is perfect for this occasion. Continue reading
