Blog Hop–Focus on Summer

Welcome to another Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  This team is led by Kimberly Moss.  This month we are going to focus our artwork on Summer.

If you have come here from Jen Patrick’s Blog, you are on the right path!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your away all around.  Just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one!  

The project I have to share with you today is for my upcoming Cricut Class to be held Saturday, June 21 at 9am.  So if you are local to Amelia, VA come and join us.  Cost is $10 if you own the cartridge and $20 if you don’t.  You can email me for more details (jaime_llewellyn@yahoo.com).

Artbooking Class 06 (0) - Smaller

Now I can’t take all of the credit for this layout.  If you have watched the final episode of the Artbooking Made Easy series you might recognize it.  It was designed by CTMH and I changed a few cuts and made it work for my class.

All cuts are from the Cricut Artbooking cartridge and I used the Jubilee and Ivy Lane paper packets along with the Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment

Artbooking Class 06 (1)

One thing they talked about in the video was painting color of some of the cuts to create an ombre effect.  I chose to use 2 ink pads and sponges instead (I thought it would be easier).  So I cut the umbrella and title from white cardstock and used the Sky and Pacifica Ink pads along with a sponge to add color.  I just made sure the color was lighter on the top than at the bottom.

The next blogger on the hop is Di Crawford.  Happy Hopping.

Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Don't be afraid of it! Just play - that's how I got started.

  2. Very nice. I love all of the details. I also love how that parasol pops with the use of the Jubilee paper.

  5. I love your interpretation of this layout - what are the sizes of the postage stamp squares? 3 or 4"?
