We've been busy with lots of summer fun these past two months. We went the pool ALOT. I helped with a craft at Cub Scout Day Camp. I was able to go to our church girls youth camp for a week. I made my youngest daughter a bandana stars and stripes top using some of my favorite striped ribbon from Stampin' Up.
Oh, and these hair things too. I used the Big Shot to cut the blue and white stars out of foam. Then, punched a hole in the center with the Crop-a-dile. To finish it off I tied the stars to the braids with the striped ribbon.
Last summer I was inspired by these memory jars. I added them to my ever growing to-do list but, never got around to making any. Don't you love those vinyl words on the jars?
These are from Martha Stewart.
When I saw this project on Erica's blog it was the kick in the pants I needed to go try making my own.
So, this was our Stamp Club creation in June.
I used a Stampin' Up digital kit to print out the embellishments we used in our project.
Just $9.95. With digital you can print as many as you need and in any size you want, over and over again! So, I decided on the size I wanted for this project and printed them out on Whisper White Cardstock. Then, we simply cut out the embellishments and added them to our memory jars.
This is a collection of photo jars Amy made to display at her photography studio. I love how they turned out and how they demonstrate using different themes, not just beach.
Stamp Club for July is tomorrow night! I hope to post our club creation soon.
Well, there you go, a little catchin' up on the blog. Things will probably be slow for another month or so as the real life little blue room is being rearranged and redecorated in August. I am SO excited! I've been sketching ideas and measuring things and hanging out on pinterest.com gathering lots of inspiration. Thanks for being patient with me. I should be back to sharing on a regular basis after school starts.
I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!
