Summer Somethings!

Happy Friday All!

We've got a summer fun challenge for you over on STAMP SOMETHING today. Our challenge is super easy, just make something having to do with summer. It can be a card, a scrap page, a 3D project, anything you can think of that reminds you of summer!

Our blog candy this week has been donated by the fabulous Gina K! She's given us one of her new release stamp sets to give away to one lucky winner! So get out your stamps and play along with us, you won't want to miss this chance! Be sure to check out the super summer fun projects made by our design team too!

For my project I wanted to make something other than a card. I haven't been feeling the stamping mojo lately, but I saw a cute tutorial on Splitcoast for a treat pouch. Once I made the pouch I decided it needed a matching 3X3 note card.

This pouch was made using Summer Picnic DSP and the stamp set Tart & Tangy, both of which are in the new Stampin' Up! catalog.

This pouch is super easy to make and would be great for party favors or a sweet little treat to let someone know you're thinking about them.

While I was making my summery treat pouch, I also made a wedding shower themed pouch to show how diverse these pouches can be. I've had weddings on the brain all summer long, so for me this is the perfect summer project!

I made this pouch using the Tie the Knot Simply Scrappin' Kit. The papers are double sided and the die cuts make perfect accents. For a more elegant look, I added ribbon, a hat pin with pearls, and some pearls to the centers of the flowers.

Thanks for looking, hope you have a fantastic weekend! Go on and stamp some summer fun!
