05/31Jume SOM Blog Hop - Are you ready to kick off the summer?!!

Yes it is that time again - my how time does fly! If you have been hoppin' along, you have just arrived from Lori's blog where you discovered another super creative project! So now it is time to check out my interpretation of this stamp set!

I have two projects for you to check out! To mix things up a bit, I decided to use X7091 It's A Guy Thing paper pack - why you ask??? Well #1 - it is time to start using up my paper AND #2 - It is time to start using up my paper stash......

My first project is a clear card using one of CTMH NEW Summer products! Z1309 NEW Clear Cards


This was rather hard to take a picture of because I kept getting the flash off the clear card but I finally have a great picture. My husband has a nasty habit of smoking cigars.... but the props are perfect for the picture!

I used the "Fancy Four" design from the Wishes book and I especially love how you can layer your work using the clear cards! This stamp has several designs you can use to make cards, layout and altered projects. Speaking of altered projects.....

I was digging through the paper pack and I noticed I started this photo card from Angela Tutton - actually Joanne Walton's idea - so I decided it was time to finish this project! So check it out!

Cut 1 piece of cardstock 5 1/4" x 12" and score at 4" and 9 1/2"

I just love the touch of the cigar and vintage lighter with the acrylic card. The cards and mini album are awesome!

I'm a bit behind, but hopping along to check out the cards because I am new and I hope to join in the SOTM hop in July! Your card totally made me come to a screeching halt - not just because the card is great but because your use of those props just made my day! Great use of them! LOL!
