I used a small square frame to put my image and sentiment on. I love white space a lot, but i did not want my image to appear to be floating in air, so by putting them on the frame it ground the image without adding extra clutter!
I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this week!

On Saturday I had the opportunity to meet up with Ardyth Percy-Robb and a couple of new friends Natasha Kara and Emily Leiphart! Natasha was a most gracious host and although the goal was to get together and craft but I honestly came home with a few die cuts that I managed to crank out! We talked and laughed the day away. Amazing that we all live so close to each other when the city of Toronto is 2.5 million large! I would meet up with these ladies again anytime!
Actually I think we are going to Ardyth's in August!
we are kicking off the StampNation Summer Beach Vacation event with a Blog Hop.
Each of the StampNation Dream Team members, along with some of our crafty
friends, are hopping along sharing cards inspired by our first challenge,
"Beach Style", as well as a peek at our favorite projects from the
Here's my card for the first challenge
What is my Beach Style? Packing up and heading to the sand. The retro van because it is JUST THAT COOL and palm trees in the background. I used Avery Elle's new Surf's Up beach inspired stamp set for my card which allowed me to colour the van retro orange, toss a surfboard on the roof and of course some silver Wink of Stella for the hubcaps! To stamp the palm tree on the ocean side of the van I created a post it mask of the surf board and the van, masked them off and stamped the palm.
It's time to hop along now. Make sure you leave comments at each of the blogs
listed below to be eligible to win...
I am on today over at the Top Dog Dies Blog with a tutorial for this Butterfly Belly Band Gatefold card. Fun and easy to make using the steel-rule Top Dog Dies A2 Card #1 and the Butterfly
Die Set. I would love it if you popped over to have a look and let me know what you think!
