Guest Designer: 3 Girl Jam

Good day to all my bloggie friends!
Before I go into my post I would like to say "THANK YOU" to everyone who joined us during the sweet summertime blog hop. Also, a special "THANK YOU" to those who left such beautiful comments here on my blog as well as on Facebook. A BIG hug to all!!!
So for today's post it is a special one...because I was invited again by my bloggie friend Chriss 
to be a Guest Designer over at 3 Girl JAM. Yiippeee!!


Thank you Chriss & 3 Girl JAM!

For my project I made little treat bags for a 4th of July gathering that I will be attending. 
I started with the (3x4) Cotton Muslin Bags.
I decorated each of my bags with the Navy Blue & Mistletoe Crinkle Ribbon. 
Such Gorgeous colors!! 
I added a star from a star die and a patriotic rosette badge (stickers) from Recollections.
I added a tiny rhinestone to the stars and used the perfect sentiment "Celebrate" 
from Teeny Tags Greetings from MCT.

Here is a closer look at the Mistletoe Crinkle Ribbon

Trendy Twine & SVG Attic Sweet Summertime Blog Hop!!

Good day to all my bloggie friends!
Welcome to the Trendy Twine-SVG Attic Sweet Summertime blog hop!  
We are so excited to have you join us today!


At each stop of the hop we hope you will be inspired by the creativity of the design teams of Trendy Twine and SVG Attic. You are sure to find many wonderful projects that will 
be at the top of your crafting lists!

You should be arriving from (Helen)'s blog
If you happened to come across this post out of order, 
please head to the Trendy Twine blog to start at the beginning of the hop.

Here is the project I created:
A 6x6 Summer Mini Album
(links to the mini album & binding tutorials are on the bottom of the post)

(Front)
I used the Just Beachy SVG Collection & the Cape Cod SVG Collection
For the front and back cover I used the star fish borders.
I duplicated the pail and used foam tape around the inside edges with the exception of the front part so that I am able to tuck in the flip flops & star fish. For the flip flops, I made little pom poms with Totally Lemon Trendy Twine and added tiny pearls. I wanted my star fish to be extra cute so I added googly eyes. I used Bazzill Dainty Dots Brights cardstock for the sun, shovel & pail.
I added a small Orangesicle Trendy Twine bow on a button and adhered it to a burlap flower.
I placed the pretty flower on the bottom of my super cute pail...


I used the super fun "beachbound" caption.

I made a lobster net with the Lemon Tart Trendy Twine.
I used the flip horizontally feature on my lobster (Cape Cod), so that I can place him 
on the left side of the fishing net and I added googly eyes. 

Warning...pictures..pictures..pictures...
It is a 12 page mini(I made 2 sets of each page)
This is the left side cover (inside)
I used the "beachbound" caption, wave borders and beach chair and stamped "laugh".

I made a bow with the Totally Red Trendy Twine and placed it on the side of the pail.
I wrapped Totally Sky Trendy Twine on my anchor (Cape Cod).

I stamped "Summer Fun!" on my photo mat.

On all of the pages, I tucked the photo mats inside.

I used the wave borders and placed surf boards on them.
Don't you just love the cute background paper? 

I stamped "Relax" on my photo mat.


I used the Totally Sky Trendy Twine on my lifesaver (Cape Cod).
I added small brads too.

I stamped "Smile" on my photo mat.


I made a clothesline with the Totally Sky Trendy Twine, used kraft cardstock for the clothespins.
Then I hung my shorts, bikini (top/bottom) from (Just Beachy).
Cute, right?

I stamped "Summer Fun!" on my photo mat.


For this super fun page.. 
I used the sun and "Fun in the Sun" caption from SDS Fun In the Sun file.

I stamped "Hello Sunshine" on my photo mat.

I used the double layer sun from (Fun in the Sun)the wave borders and 
surf boards from (Just Beachy). Cool, right?


I stamped "Summer!" on my photo mat.

This is the right side cover (inside)
I changed the color of my beach chair to red and I used the "beachbound" caption, 
with the wave borders and stamped "laugh".

I did not decorate the back cover of my Summer Mini Album, but I decorated the spine of the album.....
I used strips of colorful ribbon, Totally Red & Orangesicle Trendy Twine and I added a 
star fish brad on the center.

I hope that you all enjoyed my 6X6 Summer Mini Album!
