Royal Wednesday Blog Hop

It is time for the Royal Wednesday Blog Hop! For today we were challenge to create a summer gift box!! If you are here from Jules' blog, then you are on the right track. If you are not, then go back to QKD's blog and follow the hops along!

Well, I am so not coordinated when it comes to making a box, so I went with altering. I grabbed a Crystal Light To-Go Box (you know the one with all the little drink mixes) and cut my Flair pp (from the June Royal Kit) to fix. Then I stamped my new Lorali mermaid stamp on cardstock and then matted her on some pink cardstock to help her pop!

Now head over to Tina's blog for the next stop, and don't forget to check out all the sales at the store! Only one more Royal Kit left for August!

QKD Royal Wednesday!

For the QKD Royal Wednesday blog hop, this week, we had some inspiration as our theme! If you are here from Jules' blog then you are on the right track, if you did not come from Jules' blog, head back to the QKD blog and start from there.

So, here is the inspiration:

I love all the bright colors, but all I could think about while looking at this was beach towels and the fringe on the ends! I was stuck with that idea, so I pulled out my fibers and made a decorative border using them. I used the Flutterby stamp as an accent on my page.

Now, head over to Tina's blog to see what wonderful project she has been inspired to create and don't forget the huge mega sale at QKD. Check out my post from yesterday!!!

Royal Wednesday Blog Hop

It is Wednesday again and it is time for another Queen Kat Designs blog hop. The challenge for this week was a color challenge. If you are coming here from Maria's blog then you are on the right track! If you stumbled upon my blog, head back to the QKD blog and start from the beginning.

The color challenge was to use lime green, yellow, orange, and red. I went a little different with this challenge and created a hybrid card. I used paper from Brandy Designs and a template from Jess Gorden to highlight some wonderful QKD stamps! I used the Beach Essentials stamp set and an older discontinued set Sweet Summer. Such yummy goodness!

Now, head over to Taylor's blog for her card.

Cookin' up Creations invites you to the Count 'em up Challenge. This challenge will run for the entire month of July and will be chocked full of challenges, games, and lots and lots of fun! Not only will there be daily challenges, there will also be weekly challenges, photo challenges, and a month long challenge as well!

Don't sweat it though... just because challenges are posted everyday doesn't mean you have to scrap everyday! You will earn points for every challenge you complete... so you can scrap for the entire month, rak up those points and still be a winner at the end of the month!

Sign ups begin June 25th and end on July 5th. So grab a friend and tell them it's time to get their summer scrap on!

The first challenge will be posted on July 1 and every day a new one will be posted... each one worth a variety of points!

PRIZES, PRIZES, PRIZES!!!! Come scrap with us and you may be a winner! This is one summer challenge where there's no sweating involved. You definitely won't want to miss this one!

QKD July Release Blog Hop

Wow, where did June go? Here is it July 1, and it is time for the QKD new releases for July blog hop! If you stumbled upon my post without visiting the QKD blog, go back there and start. If you came here from there, you are on the right track.

The stamp set that I got to play with this month is Light of Christmas.

Think Christmas in July with this set. Go ahead, get it, and use it to get ahead!!! No panicking in December, wondering how you will get all your cards and gift tags done, when you can go ahead and be finished!

Or if you are like me and have pictures still left over from Christmases past that need to be scrapped, use this set for them! I used the to/from part of the stamp set for the tags on my layout.

Okay, off to Maria's blog for the next new QKD July Release. Happy Stamping!
