Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Summer Lovin’

Welcome to another edition of the Stampin’ Creative blog hop – I love being part of this fabuous group of demo’s as not only is great to do the hop but behind the scene’s there is so much fun, support and sharing for the hop and for our Stampin’ Up! businesses as well. The Stampin’ Creative crew rock! You might have joined me from the very lovely Mikaela – she always does amazing projects so if you haven’t seen them be sure to pop by!

Today we have a “Summer Lovin” theme, and whilst the summer had seemed to have disappeared I’m glad it looks set to return, especially with a special Birthday BBQ planned this weekend! During the summer one of the things my little ones love to do is go for a picnic, whether it be out and about or just in the garden, so that got me thinking and this is what I came up with.

  • The picnic basket is made following a tutorial I found on Pinterest. It’s super easy to make doesn’t require a lot of cardstock or DSP either. I covered mine with one of the fabulous summery designs from the new Sweet L’il Things Designer Series paper from the Annual catalogue – a strawberry delight in shades of Watermelon Wonder. Yum!

  • The coordinating spotty paper is from the In Colour Designer Paper stack – great value at £20.00 for 40 12×12 sheets in the 5 new colours.
  • A couple of Antique Brads hold the handle in place and finish it off before adding some yummy treats inside!

  • I made a matching card to go with it featuring one of the fun sayings from You’re So Sweet and more of that scrummy paper. The banner also is cut from another design from the Sweet L’il Things Designer Series Paper.
  • The card is finished off with a bow in the very lovely Watermelon Wonder Dotted Lace Trim.

  1. Ooohheee am liking these, the striking colours, and the papers make your mouth want to eat the strawberries on there, .. LOVE STRAWBERRIES, Sadly the Kent ones seemed to have done a disappearing act this year….

  2. Delicious projects! …. Forgive me for being bias, but I believe there are no better strawberries than English Strawberries in the summertime. The smell, the juiciness, the sweetness and the rich red colour and I do believe you’ve captured that summer feel of them beautifully here xx
