One Colorful Summer


Brought to you by the Krazy Crafting Crew

Our independent hop team is bringing you colorful delightful creations for summer time projects!

If you have just stumbled upon the hop, Robin Lane from "Create-a-Latte" will be your host today, you can start from the beginning and work your way through, to get all the inspiration we have to offer. The whole line up will be provided at the end of this post.

This is what I have came up with for a colorful summer:

I've been making a lot of cards lately and wanted to make something different for this hop so I made these party favor bags.  I used 8 My Creations Paper Pouches from Close to My Heart.   These are the small pouches measuring 3" x 4".  I used our Surf's Up paper pack to alter the pouches.  I then cut the postage stamp background and the scalloped circles using our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

The waves on the bottom of the bag, the anchor, and the ship images all came from the exclusive stamp set included in the Tommy Workshop on the Go Kit.  I stamped the images in Juniper and Sorbet ink.
