Summer Blog Hop featuring the Stampers with Attitude

 Welcome to the June Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop.

This month our theme is all things summer. 

If you have never viewed a blog hop, you will find it pretty easy to do. You just click on the link on the bottom of this post to go to the next blog.If you get lost, I have a list of all blogs at the bottom of my post.  
This month I am following Hilary Reynolds http://stampcraftyreader.blogspot.com
So if you are starting here, you will end our hop at Hilary's blog. 

For both layouts, I chose to use our Timberline and Jubilee paper kits together. The wood-grain paper is from Timerberline and the bandana looking paper from the Jubilee kit. In this first layout,  I used photos from our family trip to Angels Camp. I used our Cricut Artbooking Cartridge to cut my titles, sunburst, grass, and pieces on which to stamp images using the stamp sets in the Cricut Artbooking Collection.

In this second layout, I used photos of my grandsons playing in the wading pool at my oldest daughter's home. The two shorter fence planks pull out and have photos and journaling on the two sides.
Our Cricut Collections include a cartridge, three coordinating stamp sets, and three sheets of coordinating Dimensional Elements. This makes creating beautiful scrapbook layouts, cards, gifts and home décor projects so fast and easy.
