Summertime Fun Stuff

Today I have such a fun project for you to try!
I love using the Reflections Dies in their full size, but they are tons of fun when you just use the halves too!


I am using the Scalloped Oval set on this banner.


I used my digital papers from Echo Park, and created lots of bright and colorful layers as my banner base.


The top tiered portion of the banner is made with the Pennant die.


On the individual banner pieces I embellished each letter with the following dies:


For the letters I used the Optimistic Font on top of layers of Scalloped Circles.


I love all the bright and cheery colors in this!


It is always fun for me to think of new ways to use supplies and I am very happy with how this turned out.



Now, moving on, have you checked out our new challenge on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog?
The Challenge this week is Shades of Purple.
I came across and adorable, simple card design and wanted to make this design to show you all.
Here is the card original.
Here is my PURPLE version of the same design.


For this card I used the following dies:
Scalloped Rectangles for the card mats, Black Eyed Susans and Wood Grain Embossing Plates.


Also I used the  Pennant die again because I love that die!


Lots of purple:)


What do you think you can come up with for our challenge?


We'd love to see you link up with us.  Remember there is a $20.00 gift certificate to the lucky winner of the challenge!
I hope you have enjoyed my post today, this has been Jeannie with The Polka Cabana, have a great Friday.
