OSAT June Blog Hop Lay It Out

Good Morning, Stampers!

Welcome to the June OSAT Blog Hop!
This month, we are laying it all out with a
Lay it Out Scrapbook Page!

I hear from a lot of people that they don't do scrapbooking and
that's okay! Pages don't have to be in a book and you certainly don't
 have to make a lot of them! They are a great way to highlight special photos
in a frame, making a small brag book, highlighting a special trip
and so much more! 


I created a 6" x 6" scrapbook page and coordinating candy treat
featuring the all-new Dandelion Wishes stamp set.


I colored the dandelions in red, blues and gray for
fireworks. With the addition of a little rhienstone in the
center of the fireworks, they really do sparkle!

The bottom of the page features some patriotic fabric
that I tore into strips for a frayed edge giving it a bit
of a worn look. 


I was able to create this little firecracker (licorice) treat 
with the same pieces as the scrapbook page.
It would make a fun and inexpensive parade/party handout!

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Dandelion Wishes, Teeny Tiny Greetings, Make A Difference
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Silver Foil
Accessories: Basic Rhinestones, 1 1/2" circle punch, Circle Tab punch, Wood Crate framelits (star),
Celebrate You thinlits, Whisper White polka dot ribbon, Broadway Lights framelits

You Deserve a Break Gift Idea

Good Morning, Stampers!

We are finally nearing the end of our school year here in Michigan! WOO HOO! It's about time!
I created some end-of-the-year gifts that I thought I would share with you. They are all made with products I have saved (ok, hoarded) over the years. I need to use these up more often!! Really
easy to make!


Instructions:

1. Wrap the 12-bar package of mini Kit Kat bars using a 6 1/2" x 12" piece of decorative
paper. 
2. Cut the letters from Basic Black cardstock using the Large Letter framelits and adhere 
to the center of the package.
3. Print the sentiments on Whisper White cardstock and cut each one into a banner.
4. Adhere the banners using Stampin' Dimensionals.
5. Add a fun coordinating embellishment or die cut.
