Summer Crush Blog Hop

Welcome to the My Crush® Summer Crush Blog Hop. There are about 32 bloggers participating in this hop. If you are new to hopping blog hops are just a big circle so just keep clicking on the link (typically near the bottom of the post) to visit the next blogger.

During the month of June 2015 when you purchase a My Crush™ book and its accompanying assortment pictured in Annual Inspirations 2014–2015, you will receive the coordinating stamp set for free! The My Crush™ items are pictured on pages 150 to 157 of Annual Inspirations 2014-2015. The table in this flyer shows the available combinations.

You should have arrived here from ***Haley Dyer's The Inky Scrapper***. If you get lost along the way, a complete list of participants is always listed at Melinda Everitt's If You Bling It.

My first project was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest by Tina Lovell and posted on her blog My Scrap Happy Life. Instead of using cards from Picture My Life™ Pear & Partridge I used two of the 3" × 4" Cards from the Holiday Happenings Assortment. This card is 6½" x 5".

I purchased the Holiday Happenings Assortment with the intention of using it to help me quickly create Christmas Cards. This card is 5½" x 4¼".

I started this My Crush™ book to remember the story of my kittens. I am telling the story from the perspective of their mother Snowball.

Before you visit ***Kathy Burrows' Snips, Snaps, and Scraps***, additional information about how my project was created is below.

I used the Adorable Little Bow technique that CTMH posted on Instagram and I shared on January 14, 2015.

All supplies are from Close To My Heart except where noted:
If you are not already working with a CTMH Independent Consultant, you may purchase all of the supplies I used at my Online Business Address.

If you have a moment, please leave me a comment. I love to hear what people think of my crafts. So you do not have to scroll up, the next stop on the hop is ***Kathy Burrows' Snips, Snaps, and Scraps***. Thank you for visiting today.
