Hello everyone! I'm so happy to be kicking off a couple of weeks of Sweet Summer Inspiration over on the Doodlebug Design Blog! Summer is almost here, and I for one am VERY HAPPY about that! It's been a long winter here in New England! I decided to make some fun cards to celebrate!
Sweet Summer is such a fun, versatile collection! For my first card I made a box card and filled it with the adorable fruits from the Odds & Ends Pack!
I edited this file for the crate (deleted the bottom portion) and then added some inserts to hold the fruits. The crate was made using papers from the Sweet Summer 6x6 Pad, and the sentiment is from the Sweet Summer Chit Chats Pack. I just love the little faces on the fruits!!!
My next card is a fun pop up card. I just love making little scenes with the Odds & Ends!
Every time I see the little seagulls from the Odds & Ends Pack all I can think of are the seagulls from Finding Nemo ( Mine! Mine! Mine!!!) They are just too cute. I used some Almond Textured Cardstock for the sand and some Bubble Blue Gingham Linen Petite Prints for my sky. The tree, chair, seagulls and sun are from the Odds & Ends Pack and the sentiment is from the This & That Sticker Sheet. I finished it up with a little drink from the Tropical Punch Shaped Sprinkles.
I made my last card for a friend's upcoming birthday. She has hosted the "work friends" girls nights for about 20 years! (of the 15-ish of us, only one still works at the company, lol) When I saw the cute little tropical drinks, I thought of her fun parties!
I started with the Punch Plaid Cardstock which is my FAVORITE in this collection! I enlarged one of the insta-frames from the Polaroid Puppy Love Cut file to frame the cute little drinks from the Odds & Ends package. I finished it off with some sentiments from the Chit Chat Pack. Now if I only remember to mail it I'll be in good shape!
Be sure to stop by the Doodlebug Blog over the next couple of weeks for more fabulous Sweet Summer inspiration from the Design Team! That's it for me today, thanks for stopping by to peek!
