Summer is on!

The theme of our hop is Summer! The first thing that came to mind for me was the Hibiscus Garden 3D Die set from Altenew that I purchased a few weeks ago. I love putting these layered flowers together since there’s no stamping – just gluing layers in the right place. Each 3D die set from Altenew comes with a reference sheet that shows how each layer goes together – much like their layered stamps. It makes the whole process super easy!

 

Time to hop along!

Visit  and comment on each video on YouTube to increase your chance at winning a sponsored prize, and to win individual channel prizes. These links will take you directly to the YouTube videos where each participant has the next hopper in their description. Creating a blog post was not a requirement for the hop, so it’s best to hop over to YouTube now, leave a comment for me and hop along!

AECP: A Floral Card for Any Occasion

Floral cards are great for any occasion.
I love it when I can craft up a design that will accommodate any sentiment. I find that lots of floral designs fit that category.
