Sweet Summertime

Wowza! The 'Sweet Summertime' line is so colorful and fun to work with! I've had it for a couple of weeks now, sitting on one of my craft tables and I couldn't wait to have a crack at it!  Here are a couple cards I made.


With this first card I used the kit's paper packaging that was printed with the various papers it included. It was just to cute to throw out and I'm all about reducing, reusing and recycling whenever possible! I added the oval die cut and a couple strips of colorful 'Paper Frills' from my stash that Doodlebug manufactured some time ago. Otherwise, everything was included in the kit.


This shade of green is my favorite! Lime! So pretty and cheerful! I added the flip flops and the little rubber flower that's another stash item from Ki Memories. Fun to use up some of my older goodies! The blue scalloped border on this card was also from the kit's package.

These two card make me want to slip into my flip flops and head outdoors! Thanks for stopping by to check out my latest. Hope you are having a fun summer and still finding some crafty time! :) Kathy
