Creative Cuts & More Blog Hop Celebrating Summer, BBQ's and July 4th!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop to celebrate Summer, BBQ's, and July 4th!!! Terry (the owner of CC&M) has over 100 brand new die cuts in the store and we are going to show off some of them throughout this blog hop. The hop starts at the Die Cut Diva Blog. The official start time for the hop is Monday, June 14, at 8:00 AM (EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.

What better way to celebrate our Nation's birthday than with cards and projects to get you inspired!!! My first card features the Kraft Scalloped bottom 5x7 card. The flag stamp from the Stampin Up! set called Star-Spankled Banner was colored on the stamp with markers and stamped onto vanilla cardstock. Creative Imaginations paper was used for the layers and Papertrey Ink ribbons, buttons, and punched stars finish it off.

I used the the Box with Handles and Layers set in Huckleberry Blue. I left the top open and added all the fun 4th of July stars, flags, and ribbons. The picks were threaded through the handles and flaps to secure them in place. The round images on the sides are stickers from Creative Impressions.
Be sure to start the hop at the Die Cut Diva Blog .....If you have come from Kayla's blog you are on the right track...weren't her projects fabulous!!!! If not, hop on back to the Die Cut Diva's Blog...you don't want to miss what our designers have in store for you!
