Basic Grey Hopscotch | Monday Card Madness #93

Ahhhh, the lazy days of summer. Today’s steal, the Basic Grey Hopscotch collection, takes me back to the days when the thrill of the summer was someone getting a new Hopscotch board painted on their driveway, and the smell of a brand new swirly hoppy taw. Sure, this probably dates me, but those are fond memories of my summer vacations clear back in the ::gasp:: 70′s.

While the Hopscotch collection makes me reminisce of my youth, there is absolutely nothing vintage 70′s about these papers. It’s such a whimsical, fun collection that evokes simpler times.

This collection is so much fun to play with! It was a collection I thought was really cute, but wow, once I got chopping the papers I didn’t want to stop!

I love the Basic Grey Ribbon Doilies and used them as the foundation of my card design. I started with the pennant design and came up with this card.

I love the pink butterfly/flower inspired trim and used it on my next card.

Of course I couldn’t leave the final doily trim unloved, so made this cute little “love you” card.

The chipboard pieces are won-der-ful. They actually stick and come in such a wide variety of shapes and designs. I used some of the border pieces to mimic the idea of the doilies in the previous cards.

Thank you, Basic Grey, for that fun and carefree crafting session!

Don’t forget there is a little more time to participate in the We R Memory Keepers Operation Write Home Card Drive. As a little incentive and a huge thank you to those participating, we have a lovely Red White and Blue Stack Pack that will be given to one random winner who participates in the Operation Write Home Card Drive.

We will have a random drawing from all of the card drive participants. The winner will be announced on our July 30th Monday Card Madness blog post. (Don’t forget! Post your cards to a regular Monday Card Madness blog post by August 3rd in order to be eligible for our regular monthly drawing.)

Tomorrow we are in for a terrific How To’sday from Staci Jones with unique uses for transparencies.

Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Collection

Hasn’t it been a great birthday week here at ScrapbookSteals.com? We’re going to wrap things up with a great combination—adding Simple Stories as a new vendor in the ScrapbookSteals.com lineup and the first official design team member post from Katrina Hunt. Today Katrina wows with the Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Collection.

• • • • •

Hey there!  It’s Katrina with my first official post here on the blog.  I am so excited to be here and I can’t wait for you to see what you can do with today’s steal.

Where I live it is hot, hot, HOT, which put me in the perfect mood to work with the Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer collection.  I hate heat so it was the perfect excuse to stay inside and create.

I have two layouts and a card today to share and I still have product left over.  I may create a mini book and a few cards with the leftovers. (That’s how much product you get!)

Here is my first layout, and trust me, it’s hard to get a picture with all four dogs looking the same direction!  And then when you do, the human isn’t looking the right way!

I wanted to add an element cluster in the corner to balance the layout and the stickers were fun to do that with.

Tags, cards and more cards are the name of the game with Simple Stories collections.  This makes it super easy to layer and to create focal points on your layouts.  I love to use cards as anchors for titles on my pages and this one was perfect to make part of my title.

Right after I did that layout  I whipped up a quick card.  The large bingo cards make this easy and quick.  Add some of the collection stickers, some twine or ribbon, and voilà…a card you can give to someone to make their day!

Life got busy and then I remembered some pictures that would be perfect for this collection.  Out the pictures came and the bottom layout was created.  Now, I will admit to using a LOT of stickers on this layout.  There are so many on the sticker sheets that I couldn’t help myself.  But, if you ground them to other elements on your pages and pop them up with dimensional adhesive it give the page an entirely different look.  Layering them is a favorite trick of mine.

This time I  placed my pictures and title on the larger card elements.  I started with the title at the bottom, but after moving and shifting I decided the larger cards would be fun to layer above my pictures and have my title go across the page. I popped up the words “summer,” “up!” and the number 2.

Then I just used some of the smaller letter stickers and the “Fun” bingo card to stretch my title out even more!

And that is all from me today!  If you haven’t already grabbed the steal, I hope I have made you want to.  This is a perfect collection to scrap all those pictures you are going to be taking over the next couple of months!

Hugs,

Katrina

Katrina, wow. You have got so much talent in your itty bitty pinky that I think you need to share!

And now I think I’ll go have a cupcake. All of this birthday celebrating has me exhausted. ;)

I’ll see you Monday with a fun Monday Card Madness! Oh and if you happen to be at the Craft and Hobby Show in Chicago on Tuesday, be sure to stop by the We R Memory Keepers booth and say hi! I’ll be there helping out with the make and take and I’d love to meet you.
