July 2013 Stylin' Stampin' Blog Hop

Did you have a great 4th of July? I enjoyed the local display with my husband, but I have to admit I'm very glad that my neighborhood no longer sounds like a war zone until 11:00 every night!

Our blog hop theme this month is birthdays. My card this month is one that I taught at my June card class. It is a double pocket card and is made out of one piece of Designer Series Paper. Two cuts, a few scores, and a little folding; add some adhesive, decorate, and you're done. Well, the recipient of the card might appreciate something being put in the pockets. Perhaps some birthday money in this birthday card?

Supplies used:
Epic Day & Gingham Garden Designer Series Papers
Pool Party cardstock
Gumball Green ink
Epic Day This & That Designer Stickers
Epic Day This & That Washi tape
Label Love stamp set
Artisan Label punch
Simply Scored
Grid Paper
Sticky Strip
Stampin' Dimensionals

Inside view

I really can't tell you what supplies I love most on this card. I love all our Washi Tape as it's so easy to use and adds so much to step up a project. I have used the Epic Day and Gingham Garden Designer Series Papers on several of my projects lately. Label Love is quickly becoming one of my most used stamp sets from the new catalog. The coordinating punch can't be beat! I like to layer behind this punch, by punching out an additional piece, cutting it in half and gluing the halves to the back so they peek out on the top and bottom.

You will see many exciting changes to my blog starting this weekend. I just finished and mailed 76 items for a swap I participated in, which was actually 10 different projects. I will be posting those swap projects this weekend with all the supplies used, and then a daily post featuring each of the projects, especially if I did something "tricky" on them. (Totally not tricky, but lots of fun!)
Then starting in August, I'm proud to be a Design Team member for our new DAILY inspiration blog that will be brought to you courtesy of several of our blog hop members. If you're not currently following my blog, I would love for you to start because I don't want you to miss out seeing some of my favorite projects, which I hope will inspire you.
A HUGE shout out to Kim Ryden for getting the ball rolling on this & Bree Renwick for creating the badge!
