InStyle Stamps: June Blog Hop

Hi All,

Thanks so much for stopping by for this June blog hop with InStyle Stamps!  This month's theme was dual action: you could choose somethig patriotic, or something outdoors!  Well, I stuck with the outdoors theme and I used a barbeque image from ISS.  I am your first DT stop, and you should have arrived here from the ISS blog.

I made a cute book using my Bind-It-All, and some recycled cardboard box.  I decorated the front with the Flowers & Friends Simply Scrappin' Kit from SU.

The base is a rectangle of cardboard box, and the large base panel is Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, and DSP, and 2 of those pieces have the corners punched with a Ticket Corner Punch.  On the base, I also added a bunch of the stickers from the kit.  I tied some brown felt ribbon around the base, and added some miscellaneous charms to it using some Linen Thread.  The words were made using some Foil Thickers in black - nice and shiny.

I printed the BBQ onto Neenah Solar White CS twice, and coloured them in with Copics.  I cut one of them out with some Label Nesties, and I cut the main section out of the second one and layered it on top. 

I made this little book for some summer time pictures.  It goes with the card I made HERE.

Your next stop on the hop is the always-amazing Janelle!  Tell her I said hi! {waving}

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!
