Having Fun with Summer Time Kit

Hi everyone!  I hope your Summer is turning out to be exactly as you planned.  All week it has been raining crazy in my neck of the woods and when it rains, I like to hang out in my craft room with a HUGE cup of coffee and craft away.  And so that is exactly what I did.

My first project is a Daily Life page of what my Summer vacation looked like.  I went ahead and used my sister's pictures because I thought she captured the sunsets so well.

Ahhh, I am so happy with the way this page turned out and it makes me miss my hometown.  But I know it's just a 45 minute airplane ride away. Okay, along with a 30 minute drive. hehe!  So EVERYTHING on this page comes from the Summer Time Journaling Cards and Summer Time Print & Cut Kit from The Greeting Farm.

Now... I've been having the urge to make Summer Time Anya in Paris because Anya is always sweet yet sassy.  Don't you think?  So I created a step-card that shows the Eiffel Tower and because there isn't a beach near the tower I added a pool.  Surely there must be a pool somewhere close by right?  And I agree with Anya here... Life IS better at the pool!

One of my all time favorite things to make is homemade scrubs.

Here I upcycled a jar and filled it with a homemade orange cream sugar scrub and wrapped it with a Summer Time Journal Card. Even the blue paper behind the label is a journal card.  HAHA! I wasn't gonna waste anything!  I decided to decorate a gift box as well and again I used the same journal card and elements from the kit.  Of course I had to add the orange Popsicle :)

And for fun I made another card...

When I saw these stars I quickly had Skater Ian in mind.  And like a typical boy he's enjoying life.

Thank you so much for allowing me to share all my projects using this amazing kit with all of you!  I was having so much fun with it. Please visit The Greeting Farm and my fellow DT members ClaudetteCorinne, and Cynthia.  THANK YOU!

Summertime Mini Release

Hello friends!  I hope everyone had a fun and safe Holiday weekend.  Today I'm sharing a mini release on The Greeting Farm's Summer Time Journal cards. They are currently on sale over at The Greeting Farm.  These cards can be used in many ways... Daily life, scrapbook layouts, cards, and so much more!  Here are a couple of ways that I have used them...

Every paper you see here is from this new Summer Time Journal Cards Kit and the added elements are from the Summer Time Print & Cut Kit.  My photos didn't do justice to how beautiful the water was that day so I'm pleased with how much my page is brightened up with this kit.

I also created a card. All the background paper is from the Journal Cards and the sun and sentiment is from the Print & Cut Kit. I wanted to make a fishing card because I'm looking forward to doing some fishing this summer.

I hope you enjoyed my projects and that it has helped you in getting your creativity flowing.  Happy crafting everyone and be sure to stop by the other design team members for more crafty ideas.
