Deja Views and SEI - ROCK!!!

I can't say enough good things about our wonderful sponsors for July at Scrapbook Playground! Deja Views and SEI! We were all sent a huge amount of supplies - wonderful papers, glitter diecuts, chipboard, ribbon, brads, alpha letters, puffy stickers and much more. Yummy, yummy, yummy! I loved the colors of the Deja Views Little Yellow Bicycle line and the texture on the SEI Dill Blossom line was to die for. I've included a few samples of my LOs here, but head over to Scrapbook Playground to check out the galleries for Deja Views - http://scrapbookplayground.com/pp331/showgallery.php?cat=990/ and SEI - http://scrapbookplayground.com/pp331/showgallery.php?cat=990/

Twice in One Day!!

Kimmie and Corey are keeping me on my toes and keeping my blog updated for sure. I wonder if this was Kimmie's intent all along. She's always after me to update my blog. Well, here ya go sweetie - two in one day!

I had to do another challenge to use the scraps from my LO to make a card. Since I used no PP I really had no scraps, so I kept with the same theme and just made a cute summer birthday card using the same supplies (SU Stipple Shells Stamp Set, Stickles, SU Ink and pop dots, but I did use leftover CS scraps - yay me!) Hope you like it.

Use Your Stash Challenge - Using Stamps

I finally got my LO done and I'm not sure if I like it or not. It's very simple for me, not my usual thing so it sort of looks unfinished to me, but I decided I'm not going to mess with it anymore. I used the Stampin' Up set Stipple Shells. I drew a circle with a paper plate on a piece of white cardstock and then started stamping the shells around the circle. I erased the pencil line and then stamped some extra shells on a separate paper and cut them out. I then used pop dots to give the LO a little depth and added some stickles for sparkle. I also used a Sakura gel pen to add some stitching around the outside and a couple of Prima and American Craft flowers attached using brads. The stickers are from Mary Engelbreit.

Use Your Stash - A New Blog

I can hardly believe that it is July 1st already. Didn't school just let out? I feel like summer is flying by and I still have so much to look forward to. A trip with DH and a family trip to the outer banks. Plus tons of other little goodies we have planned.

Friends of mine, Corey and Kimmie, have started a "Use Your Stash" Blog. This will be a fun place to frequent because the challenges will help you use up that huge stash you've accumulated. I know I definitely need that little kick in the rear to use some of my supplies. But I figured, why did I buy them, well, cause they look so pretty. Well, now they're just going to have to look pretty on my page. So head on over and check it out, it looks like they're planning a giveaway (and if I know Kimmie it'll be awesome). Here's a link and tell them that I sent you: www.useyourstash.blogspot.com.
