It's Blog Hoppin` Time With The Stampin` Stylin` Squad!

Happy Happy Post 4th of July!!! I hope you are having an amazing week full of fun and great memories!! I really love this month's theme. I was a bit stumped.. but once I started, I was on a roll. I never really liked to work with red, white and blue. Not that I don't like the colors together, but I'm more of a um.. subtles girl, or other brights together.. just not really worked with these together before. And, you know what? I love it! I really dig these three colors together! Featuring: Real Red, Pacific Point, Crumb Cake, and Whisper White.

Here is my ensemble together.. and then we can talk about each "recipe" separately... ready?

I decided to make, small gift cards for gift bags, a larger A2 size card, and a goodie bag filled with chocolate. A few things I used are retired. I know.. bad me. I try so hard to keep to just current Stampin` Up! products. Unfortunately, our starts have all been retired. I decided to use them anyway.. I was in a star kind of mood. If you have these dies for the Big Shot, I hope I have inspired you to dust them off and USE them!

Project #1 - The A2 Sized Card. I will tell you, I got this card layout idea from Pintrest. She is a fellow demonstrator. She used different Designer Series Paper. I wanted to change it up a bit.
