June's Crop - Make A Wish Foundation

At the crop we made projects using the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack and, gasp, no stamping! The first project is our pocket page. Punched and cut up some of the 3x4 cards to create this page.

Little flags that can be used in so many ways! But on Saturday we had Chocolate, Vanilla and Red Velvet cupcakes to go with them, yummy! We cut up some of the 4x6 cards and used the cardstock stickers to embellish the flags.

Lisa designed this wonderful scrapbook page. You can change the cards simply by using a punch - the Tag Topper Punch to create the great backdrop to the cute photos of her son.

Cards are really easy and quick to make with a pack (or two) of the Memories & More Cards and Envelopes with a Memories & More Card Pack. You only need a little adhesive and you can make 10 or more cards quick and easy!

Thank you to all who joined us at the Crop on Saturday! We raised $161.29 for Make A Wish!
Join us on Saturday July 18th at St. Lawrence College for our next All Day Crop in support of Loving Spoonful - registration is open until July 7th! https://www.facebook.com/events/242646219810918/

Supplies
Stamps: none
Accessories: Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack, Memories & More Cards and Envelopes, Ribbon, Everyday Label Punch, Tag Topper Punch

Grey Heron with Blends!

Have you tried Stampin' Up!'s Blends? I'm starting to fall in love with them. I might just have to order some. To be honest I never thought I would like them! But at the crop this past Saturday I borrowed Lisa's Blends to colour in the images for this card and wow, definitely changed my mind! If you haven't tried them yet let me know. They are on my next order so watch for more projects soon featuring them! On a side note, I also borrowed a friend's Stamparatus to line up the Thinking of you sentiment and it was perfect!. Another item I mistakenly thought I didn't need. That's on my next order too... 

Supplies
Stamps: Lily Pad Lake
Colours: Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Lakeside Framelits, Stampin' Blends: Rich Razzelberry, Old Olive and Smokey Slate

Ocean Picture Frame


Creating this project makes me think of the trips I've taken down east. My mom and I are headed to Nova Scotia at the end of this month. I'll put my favourite picture in this frame after our trip. T minus 10 days!


The Under the Sea Framlits makes this project easy! The only freehand cutting I did was around the back seaweed. For the sand dollars I stamped the net onto Whisper White cardstock and then ran it through the Big Shot with the sand dollar framelits, then used my Aquapainter with a small amount of Crumb Cake ink to muddy the lines a bit.

Supplies
Stamps: Sea of Textures
Colours: Bermuda Bay, Granite Gray, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Tranquil Textures Sprinkles, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals, Layering Circle Thinlits, Under The Sea Framelits, Seaside Embossing Folder
