My Craft Spot Blog Hop!

I hope you enjoyed this past week of new releases and are excited to get some of the new stuff!  It is awesome!  Make sure you look at all the photos, there are a lot. 

Make sure you scroll clear to the end of this post for the blog hop line up and my give away.

For my project today I made a little beach tote and 4 little note cards and envelopes to go inside.  I had so much fun making this and hope you enjoy it!


The tote is from the Silhouette store.  The fun little tag was made with the Tiny Metal Dies and stamped with the new stamp set Stampin Around Summer, both from My Craft Spot.


I tied it on with Caribbean Crinkle Ribbon and Lemon Tart Twine both from My Craft Spot.



I tied the cards and the envelopes together with Twisted Teal Twine from My Craft Spot.


The cards are 2x3 very small but just the right size for a quick note.  The fronts of the cards were made with the Tiny Metal Dies and the Stampin Around Summer stamp set.  I then tied twine on each one, the orange is Orange Divine and the yellow is Lemon Tart.  All these products are from My Craft Spot.




I sized the envelopes in Silhouette DE to fit the little cards and stamped the outside with a stamp from the Stampin Around Summer set.



The card stock is American Crafts and the DP is Splash from Echo Park.


For my blog hop give away, I will be giving away the new Stampin Around Summer stamp set from My Craft Spot.
