Good Old Summertime Blog Hop

So glad you are joining us for the Good Old Summertime Blog Hop!!!

 We are so excited that you have joined us today!!! You have made it to the last stop and I know you have to be enjoying all the fun Summer projects. The ladies on this hop are all so super talented!!!

Did you say you like Blog Hop

CANDY!!!

Here's how you can win some:

Be sure to be a FOLLOWER and COMMENT on each blog because we are all featuring Mary's Cardz TV Stamps in our projects, and we are ALL giving away a set of Cardz TV Stamps!  What?! You read that right!  All 6 of us will randomly choose a comment from our blog to win a set of Cardz TV Stamps to add to your crafty stash. Remember to FOLLOW and COMMENT on each blog being sure to leave a way to contact you in case you win! (USA addresses only)

MORE CANDY!!!!

In addition to the Cardz TV Stamps, some of the blogs are offering additional CANDY. Read each blog post to learn how to win from their blog. I'll tell you about the additional CANDY I'm offering right after I show you my project.

Today I have this super fun Layout to share with you.
  
Summer fun is sunshine and sunsets, beaches, and bare footin' fun!!! If I could live near the beach I would be in bliss and one of these days I will figure out how to at least visit the beach on a regular basis. So naturally when I thought of Good Old Summertime, my mind couldn't help but dream of the sand and palm trees! I made this LO using the Tropical Sunset file from Treasure Box Designs.
For the background and the photo mats, I used papers from Echo Park's I Love Sunshine collection that was designed by Lori Whitlock. These photos do not do justice to the papers at all. For my paper piecings, I used various brands of quality cardstock.


I did a bit of embossing on the coconuts in the palm tress using the D'vine Swirls folder from Cuttlebug. When making the boys umbrella hut, I wanted to add dimension there so I gave the umbrella a curve effect by pulling it along the side of my gel pen.


All the pieces are attached using dimensionals in one or two layers so that the pieces all pop off the page. The only exception are the photo mats. For one last touch, I added a sentiment from Mary's Cardz TV Stamps set called Summer Fun.

More Blog Hop Candy to be won!!!

There are so many sweet files from the Treasure Box Designs store to use for making cards, scrapbook layouts, and treat/gift packages. So for my prize, you can win either one free set of the digital files from the store to use with your electronic die cutting machine or you can ask me to piece together one set of TBD files that I send to you finished for you to use on cards or a layout. Once a winner is drawn and I am contacted by the winner, I will ask you which of the two options you would prefer.

Remember to win either of my prizes, you need to be a follower of my blog and leave a comment!

Winners announced on each blog on Monday, July 13! 


Here's the complete hop lineup in case you need to start at the beginning! Enjoy!


So glad you hopped with us today. I'm excited to read all your comments. They are always very appreciated!!! And I want to thank all of you who become new followers. I hope you will stop in often!!! I want to invite you to drop by and follow me on my Facebook and Pinterest pages as well. And if you are on Instagram, you will find me @mmirandacreations.

(The LO featured today on this post can be found in my Ebay store here. And check out the other items in my store here.)

Blessings,
