End of Summer Labor Day Blog Hop


End of Summer Blog Hop

September 1st and 2nd, 2013

Cuttin' and Stampin' is celebrating

There is SO MUCH going on this weekend!  We have five new Design Team Members to introduce to you.  There's also a new Cuttin' and Stampin' Weekly Special starting this weekend.  From this point forward, you will be able to purchase the items the design team is using for the weekly challenge at a very special price.  This week, each of us has used the Bazzill Basic Paper collection called Lucy's Crab Shack.

Blog hop participants should have arrived here from Teresa K.'s blog.   If you did not not, you can start the hop at Cuttin' and Stampin' and work your way through our 13 talented Design Team members.

So now on to my project...  


I was feeling rather tropical, and why wouldn't I with places like Malibu, Key Largo, and Daytona Beach mentioned in the paper's pattern?  Both patterns and the pre-sewn banner are part of the Lucy's Crab Shack line.  The "warm thoughts" phrase is from the Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler set.  I chose the hibiscus flower specifically for its tropical origins, and it's from Making Memories.  The solid cardstock is Bazzill, also, and I wanted to call your attention to the blue.  It's a brand new cardstock called "denim".  My card has the dark denim, and here's a combo shot showing the light denim, too.



I love the versatility of having denim-like cardstock!  You know how you can wear just about any blouse, t-shirt, jacket or sweater with jeans?  The same goes for papers!  It really seems to go with everything.

Next up on our hop is Theresa R.'s blog.  And at the very end of our hop, you can enter to win a great blog candy gift pack on the Cuttin' and Stampin' Challenge blog.  Winners will be announced on September 6, 2013.  

If you get lost along the way, here's a complete line up:

Hope you enjoyed hopping with us!  Happy Stamping!
