Red, White, & Blue Blog Hop with Cardz TV Gallery Designers


Hi, everyone! Today I am part of the Red, White, & Blue Cardz TV Gallery Designers' Blog Hop! If you missed seeing the other Designers' amazing projects, be sure to start at the beginning at Mary's Cardz TV Blog.

I decided to create a 12x12 scrapbook layout for my Red, White, and Blue project. Take a looksee!


I LOVE how it turned out!

Cut files used:
  • Sil ID# 67429 - Background - I used the Tutorial on the Silhouette America site for filling in an intricate shape
  • Sil ID# 44051 - The Lake Is Calling (I created a shadow for some of the words that didn't include one in this cut file)
  • Sil ID# 1407 - Tag (I created the shadow for this tag as well using the Silhouette Offset feature.)
Cardz TV Stamps used:
  • It's All Good - No Worries
  • It's a Guy Thing - Solid smaller star image
  • Christmas Joy - Striped larger star image (I stamped off the page first and then stamped this design on the tag to lighten the ink a little)
Photo was taken recently one evening by my husband, Tom, while we were sitting out on the dock looking at the stars. We could see Venus, Jupiter and the Moon among other stars. I love quiet, beautiful moments with my hubby like that.

Rhinestones and ribbons on tag are from Walmart. 
Lake, tag, and background all adhered with foam tape for dimension.

What's a blog hop without some blog candy! Mary will be giving 3 NEW Sets of Cardz TV Stamps for her blog candy, so if you're a follower of Cardz TV, just leave a comment on her blog! Mary will use random.org to pick a winner, and will announce the WINNER on Monday!

Below is a list of all the stops in today's Red, White, & Blue Blog Hop. If you get lost, just come back here to check the list and find your way again.

Thank you for hopping with us today... we hope you had fun! I know we did!
