Just A Scrappin' "SUMMER FUN" Blog Hop

Hello fellow bloggers and followers! 

Happy Summer! Is it a hot one for you too? We've seen temperatures go as high as 36C here! Yikes!

We are celebrating the Fun of Summer with our Design Team members.  They have made projects to show what they like about summer. (What's not to like?)

If you are just stopping by please start at the beginning at Just A Scrappin' 

If you are following the hop you should of arrived here from Happy Expressions then you are on the right track.  There will be a list at the end if you get lost along the way.

We have some fun blog candy for you to win today not only from Just A Scrappin' but from several of the individual Design Team members.  To be eligible for the blog candy you need to leave a comment on each of the members blogs.  Please become a follower so that you can see tons of talented members.  Please be sure to leave a way to contact you.
Here is my project! For this one, I chose to do a card:

 Here is the outside of my card. 

And the inside!

The card is 5 1/2" square. 

All cuts on the front are from the Creative Memories "Traveller" Cartridge. The fuchsia is from a Cricut paper stack and the white is from Dollarama. The teal base card stock is from Creative Memories, as is the yellow on the cup and shadowing the sentiment.
The back ground frame is cut at 5 1/2".
The drink is cut at 4 1/2"
The "Relax and Unwind" sentiment is cut at 1 1/2" (The white on "Relax" is "White Shimmer" card stock from Creative Memories)

On the inside, I used the positive cuts from the glass (yeah, I tried it in pink too... hehe) and glued them with my Creative Memories Precision Point Adhesive Pen
The waves are cut from the "White Shimmer" card stock using the "Wave" cartridge in the Border Maker System from Creative Memories

And there you have it! 

Now for the FUN!

All in all you will recive 48 double-sided photo mats (some co-ordinating cardstock included!) and 10 vellum sentiments/quotes!

Belinda -
Thanks for hopping by! 


  1. What a great idea to decorate the inside as well! Nothing like a cool glass of lemonaide on a hot day. Very cute card. TFS!

  2. Very cute card. I forget about these wonderful cuts on the traveler cart. Tfs.

  3. Love the retro look! I also like the decorations on the inside-I have to remember to do that sometime!

  4. Love the retro look now all I need is a cool cold drink on another hot day
    I'm like Michelle gotta decorate the inside of a card next time

  5. I love this! This is soooooo awesome...and I sure could use a nice cold tropical drink! The best way for me to unwind in the summer is to have a nice relaxing float in a pool .... just laying on a float and relaxing!


  6. It's hot out and this card just cools me off. Nice job.

  7. Super cute, great job! Reading is relaxing!

  8. Great card. Love how you did the inside. I relax with a cup of tea, a good mystery book and my cat on my lap. TFS


  9. Super card from a talented lady. I do my best relaxing when crafting of any type.

  10. Great job Nicole! I love it! An inspiration to start card making perhaps!!! LOL
    My favourite way to relax is digital scrapbooking when I'm home and picture taking when I'm out!

  11. Nicole, I really enjoy the use of colors. The red, blue and yellow are great together. TFS!

  12. Love the colors. It just says summer! Relax? I'd have to say sitting on my porch swing sipping a glass of wine and visiting about our day with hubby.
    Thanks for letting us stop by for a visit.

  13. I love how you carried your "theme" throughout the whole card.

    My favorite thing to do to relax involves me and my Kindle. Nothing like escaping into another world for awhile. If it's the summer, a fan and bottle of water are generally involved also :)


  14. That just whispers... summer... slow down....

    I relax by making cards :) it's a great break from working on lesson plans for the upcoming school year.
