Want2Scrap™ and PSA Essentials Summer blog hop


Hey blog friends!   Around my house, as the summer sun is making it's s-l-o-w appearance we have been taken with singing a lot of "here comes the sun, (do do do dooo)" to encourage it to show it's happy and shiny face....but regardless if you have summer sun where you are right now, grab some shades because Want2Scrap™ and PSA Essentials have teamed up to bring you some summer inspired projects today! 

If you started at the Want2Scrap™ blog and have been following the hop in order then you would have come here from the delightful blog of Jeanne Streiff and you'll be heading next to the equally delightful blog of Jennifer Holmes.  If you would like to see the complete list of designers please start at the beginning on the Want2Scrap™  blog.  Also, I have some info regarding GIVEAWAYS and SALES so keep reading and looking....


My first project is a quick and simple card to drop a note to someone to say "wish you were here" or perhaps to say thank you to the hostess for sharing their beach house vacation with you and your family.  I used the Want2Scrap™ Nestabling Petite Scalloped Circle Sm Gold Rhinestones to highlight the cute sand castle stamp from PSA Essentials.  The sand castle is from the super cute Anchor's Away set.  I also created the custom stamped background paper by stamping with one of the images from the Rosettas set.  It's a lovely and ornate set of stamps that is so versatile!  A bit of stickles glitter glue, twine and a vintage button was all it took to finish this card off.  Now, a second project to tickle your funny bone and to remind us to use every little thing in our stash...
They've got
their eyes
on you!
 
These darling little treasures from the sea, also part of the Anchor's Away set, were too cute to pass up while I was creating for this hop.  I also had a treasured bit of silver bling left on my much loved sheet of Nestabling™ Pennants Silver Rhinestones that I had been saving for a while.  I also added some 72 Count - Silver Rhinestones - Self Adhesive individual bling to the center area of the pennant.


I love a new bookmark just for fun!  Now I admit this one is living in my summer reading book because it makes me giggle but this would also be a great project for the children in your life.  But for now....

YOU are a complete and total HOOT! These projects scream SUMMERTIME fun - I love BOTH of them! The sand castle card has me packing my sandals and sunscreen, but the bookmark reminds me it might be time to buy a new LOUNGE CHAIR that packs easily for the hike down to the beach! - I have to find a nice, wind protected spot to get to that summer reading, but still work on my tan! {HUGE lol!} SERIOUSLY, girl - FUN*FUN! I want to party with YOU cowgirl - and while we're at it, let's talk about HOW wonderfully Want2Scrap bling and PSA stamps go together! Like PEAS and CARROTS - I'm tellin' ya! THANKS for the ADORABLE inspiration! Me eye's are gawkin - BIG time!
