Fun in the Sun - CTMH - Stampers with an Attitude Style!

Welcome to the Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop!  

This month our blog theme is "Fun in the Sun" 

The Stampers with an Attitude are excited to show you a little Art with an Attitude, so here we go. I have included a complete list at the bottom, should you get lost or want to revisit one of the blogs.
The blogger in front of me is, Melinda Everitt, didn't you LOVE her artwork!
This is my first blog hop, I hope you all enjoy mine and the others along our Blog Hop. I chose to use the Close to My Heart Tommy Paper Kit X7169B for my projects. Inks used were Z2103 Bamboo, Z2162 Honey, Z2116 Cranberry, Z2140 Outdoor Denim, and Z2118 Desert Sand.

First is a 12x12 layout again using the Tommy kit. I used the stamp set D1534 Patterned Pennants and C1544 Surf's Up Scrapbooking Workshop stamp set. These pictures were taken while we were in Cabo San Lucas. While my hubby went Parasailing, our daughter Summer had her hair braided. One reason I chose this stamp set is because Summer's nickname is Sunshine.
Next is a 6x6 layout using the Tommy papers. I kept it simple with this one, not even a single stamped image. This photo is of our daughter Summer and was taken on our Mexican cruise.
Lastly is the card I made using C1546 Tommy Scrapbooking  
Workshop Kit stamp set.

Now continue along over to our next blog hopper,  Sheila Bennett . You will not want to miss what she has made!

Should you get lost along you path of our blog, here is a list of our participating blog hoppers.


  1. Wowza! You have been busy. So glad that you joined us. I love all of your artwork, but my favorite is the second scrapbooking page. you are very talented!

  2. Great work of art. Love how you used the Tommy paper pack and made your projects amazing. I may have to actually get this paper pack now. Your 1st layout is great. The subtle use of the striped paper really makes the layout standout with the anchor (that's the part of the paper pack I do not like).
    The 2nd layout is awesome too.Simply done with the sun rays of different colors/patterns really makes it a hit.
    The card is really cute too. Love the framed in sea map with the large bow. Wonderful colors that all come together nicely. Thanks for sharing. Glad you joined us in the blog hop!

  3. Being more of a card maker than a scrap booker - I absolutely love the card, and I love the sun rays on your layout! I may have to work that idea into my next class

  4. Beautiful work as always Barbi :) The layout is fabulous and I love the pennants :)
    see you soooon!!!!!
