Good Ole Summertime Blog Hop


Yay! The Day is here for our Good Old Summertime Blog Hop! Woo-Hoo!

 //throws confetti//      //cheers from the crowd//     //balloon release//

We are so super excited that you have decided to be a part of this very small hop. There are only 6 stops total!  All the projects for this hop are SUMMER related. You're going to love what the girls have come up with. These ladies just blow me away with their creativity!

CANDY!!!!

Be sure to be a FOLLOWER and COMMENT on each blog because we are all featuring Mary's Cardz TV Stamps in our projects, and we are ALL giving away a set of Cardz TV Stamps!  What?! You read that right!  All 6 of us will randomly choose a comment from our blog to win a set of Cardz TV Stamps to add to your crafty stash. (USA addresses only) Remember to FOLLOW and COMMENT on each blog being sure to leave a way to contact you in case you win!

MORE CANDY!!!!

ALL WINNERS ANNOUNCED ON EACH BLOG ON MONDAY, JULY 13th!

In addition to the Cardz TV Stamps, some of the blogs (like me!) are offering additional CANDY. Read each blog post to learn how to win from their blog. I'll tell you about the additional CANDY I'm offering right after I show you my project.

I decided to create some Summertime Treat bags using my Cricut Explore & my Silhouette Cameo.


  •  Package sleeve - Sil ID# 6427
    • I left the bottom loose and used twine to wrap around it for closing and easy opening again. 
  • Toppers - Cricut Make-It-Now Summer Bag Toppers - easy peasy lemon squeezy
  • Scallop Circles - metal dies
  • Cardz TV Stamps - Going in Circles
  • Sequins and Bangles


How fun is that?!

I have MORE CANDY you could win! In addition to one of Mary's Cardz TV Stamp sets, I'll also be choosing additional winners for additional prizes I'm giving away! (Must have USA address)


One lucky FOLLOWER who leaves a comment on this post will win this gorgeous Echo Park "Walking on Sunshine" 12x12 kit sponsored by Sheree of Boots and Bling Time! Echo Park is one of my favorite paper brands. This kit is adorable. You will love it, and it's perfect for all your summer projects.

But wait.... there's more!

I love using metal dies in my crafting, so when I saw this online, I knew I wanted to buy it for part of my give-away! It's the QuicKutz Cutting Dies - Pocket Scrap Dies - HOORAY. 

Here's the hop lineup! Enjoy!

Her links when I click on gave me errors for yours & next person after her so I clicked on her blog hop pic she had on her blog sidebar and got to yours. I have the pic of blog hop on my sidebar with link to you. For my email please sub symbols for words in parens & no blanks:
