CTO Pool Party Blog Hop

Welcome to the Celebrate the Occasion's “Pool Party Blog Hop.” If you arrived here from the wonderful Judy Ann's blog you are on the right track. If you are visiting and want to start at the beginning, which I highly recommend so you can enter in all the blog candy J then you will want to start at the Celebrate the Occasion blog. Onto the card/box set J


I decided to make a fun but simple gift set for summer vacation. There are a set of (6) 3x3 minis that fit into the cute little gift box. I made two of each card, that is why you only see the 3 with envelopes to go with them. I had some really great K&Company paper that had really great bright summer colors, so it worked perfectly. With the pop dotted stickers from American Crafts it added height, so if you did flatter ones you could get a lot more into the box or leave room for a small gift on top. The box is made from a 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 piece of card stock and of course the cards that fit into it are the 3 x 3, so with one piece of 12 x 12 card stock you can get 8 cards, yeahhhh!!! So simple and a great gift for anyone :)

Now onto today’s blog candy, it is a mish mash of items from Martha Stewart, Colorbok, American Crafts, etc.. Something for everyone, brads, chipboard, stickers, ribbon and buttons. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post and I would absolutely love for you to become a follower but it is not necessary and you will have a chance to win it! Please, Please make sure you leave a way to get a hold of you, if there is not any contact information on your post I will have to re-choose, thank you for understanding. The Blog Hop closes Sunday and the winner for my candy will be picked on Monday the 6th. So that means you will have until midnight on the 5th to leave a comment and a way for me to get a hold of you!!

Now onto your next and final stop and it shall be the fabulous Laverne!

Don’t forget to stop and leave a comment on all the blogs for a chance to win their blog candy, there are some good prizes to be won!! Happy Hopping J
