May National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop "Taste Of Summer"

Hi Ladies! If you came from Lisa Plummer's Blog, then you're right on track! Please visit Melinda's Blog if you got lost during the hop. We are celebrating National Scrapbooking Month and Close To My Heart is releasing for this month only, a truly yummy paper pack--Taste Of Summer.


It also has a matching stamp set, Simply Sublime.



I went to town with making my projects, but I had to stop because of work. I made matching gift items: an A2 card, a notecard, and a strawberry box using the Artiste cartridge(I cut it at 4").

The A2 card was embellished using Black Striped Twill Ribbon, and the black stars from Scaredy Cat Assortment. I added a Red Shimmer Trim to the notecard, and the strawberry box had an added cranberry twine to hold the tag which I had cut freehand from Hollyhock Cardstock. The leaf center has a blingy brad from my stash.



I made a gender-neutral baby card using the green floral designer paper from the collection. I thought that shade of green would look lovely when paired with slate. I trimmed a Picture My Life Babycakes card with a rubber duck in it and rounded the edges with a Corner Rounder Punch. I added some Slate Striped Twist Ties and Oceanside Sequins. The sentiment is from the Nursery Charms stamp set, stamped with Canary Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad.
