Stampin Friends Sumner Fun Blog Hop

Hello! and welcome to this months Stampin' Friends Blog Hop.  I am so excited to be a guest designer for this months Hop!  This month's theme is Summer Fun.  Each of the stops features a card and a 3D item, so do be sure and check out all the stops.  If you are following the Hop in order then you have just arrived from Elizabeth Jeanne's blog where she wow'ed us with her great projects.  If

This month we have 3 awesome guests hoppers:
Twila Davis:  That's me!  Eeekk!
I am so excited be a guest once again with this wonderful group of talented stampers.  So let's get on to my projects.  Since the theme is summer I went with a fun fishy set of projects.
 I decided to make a fun shaker card and a matching activity box for a car ride for my grandsons.
 If you have never made a shaker card you have got to try it.  Stampin' Up! makes it super easy now that they carry Foam Adhesive Strips.  They also have Clear Window Sheets in their inventory.  The stamp set I chose to showcase is Seaside Shore.  I had made this card for my last stamp camp and don't know why I didn't emboss the blue with the new Seaside emboss folder but I did for this card and love how much it really made the card pop!  I used the 2" Circle punch for my window and glued a 2 1/2" square of the Window Sheet behind that thed added a circle of the Foam stip before adding the fishy stamped image, masking the fish to make the plant look like it was behind the fish.  With the help of the Lots of Labels framelits I think the card turned out just "swimmingly".
 For my 3D project I thought it would be fun to create a fun travel box for my grandsons.  I am sure I will have to make 2 more as they are triplets.  The By The Shore DSP was a perfect choice for the background to cover one of the Wide Stamp Cases from Stampin' Up!  Finishing it off is some of the yummy new Ruched Dapper Denim Ribbon.
I added a covered magnetic sheet of dsp to the inside of the case and then made some fish magnets for some added fun.  Also a little pocket in the bottom for notes.  I added a notebook that I trimmed to fit inside and topped it off with some more of the By The Shore DSP.  All was let to do was alter an ink pen to match and that completed my project.

I hope you liked my projects.  And if you have a minute to leave me a comment, I would love to here what you thought of them.

Just love this stamp set. I live in a lake town so that adds to the fun with this set. #SFBlogHop

Crystal said...

Cute projects! What did you use in your shaker card? Plain sand? I was afraid that would leave powered sand on the window, so just wanted to verify before I case it! #SFJulyBlogHop

Twila said...

Yes Crystal I used regular sand. I think you can get white play sand that would be much better though. Glad you liked my card.

Twila said...

Desiree, I used my guillotine paper cutter for most of it. Cutting about 5 pages at a time. You can get them cut at a office supply store though.
