June 2020 - Stampin’ Friends Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin' Friends Blog Hop! We share on the third Thursday of every month with fun projects from all around the world! If you are following the hop, you arrived here from Lisa Ann Bernard’s blog. Welcome! This month, our theme is What’s Going On?" I hope you have some fun hopping with us this month and find lots of creative inspiration. 

What’s going on here? Well, it’s officially Summer in Texas and the means our yard is in full bloom. I decided to create my projects using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle because it really seemed appropriate for this hop. We actually planted some sunflowers in the yard this year and I’m really looking forward to seeing them bloom in the coming months. For the time being, we have plenty to keep an eye on in the yard, including the prized peppers (hot and sweet)…It’s almost salsa season, y’all!! 
For my project, I created a card a coordinating gift bag. I always forget about the All Dressed Up Dies for a fun gift bag. Easy peasy to put together with a few sponged details, vellum accents and that fabulous gingham ribbon. Sunflowers are such HAPPY flowers! 
I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my projects below. There is also a supply list at the end of the post.

  • Bumblebee Card Base - 5-1/2” x 8-1/2, scored at 4-1/4”
