Stampers with Attitude ~ Taste of Summer

Welcome to the Stampers with Attitude Blog Hop!!  The Stampers with Attitude is the team lead by Kimberly Moss.  This month the Stampers with Attitude are going to be showcasing art work featuring the Taste of Summer Paper Pack!

If you are just hopping here from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog  then you are in the right spot.  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating consultant at the end of my blog.

I have been working on seasonal home decor for our house and love creating banners and wreaths.  I am needing some summer decorations and when I saw this paper pack I knew it was prefect!!!  I wanted to make a summer banner and planned to do it all in cardstock but I then found these burlap 4 x 4″ squares at Michaels and knew they would be prefect.

Taste of Summer ~ National Scrapbooking Month ~ #CTMHTOS ~ catscrapbooking.comI used my Cricut to cut the frames.  I used the 4 x4 photo frame from pg 81 in the Artbooking cartridge. The larger is cut at 3.5″ by 3.5 ” (I did unlock them in Design Space to make frame square) and the smaller is 3.25″ x 3.25″.  I used Pickwick font to crate the “SUMMER” on my Cricut Explore, but in order to create the outlined I used my Silhouette (as I am not aware of Cricut’s ability to do this using Design Space).
