Simon Says Stamps Summer Release HOP!!!


Hi everyone and welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamps Summer release Blog Hop. You should have arrived here by way of the amazing Kristina Werner (she's incredible isn't she?).

When I got my package of goodies for this release... I was giddy like a school girl....there are soooo many cool stamps... and dies... OMG!!!  I had to control my self.  So to wrangle myself back in... I thought... what cards do I need to make for occasions coming up and what would I use from this selection to make them?

I don't know about you... but JUNE is full of weddings and graduations for me. I instinctively headed for the light wedding color papers and started in with these fantastic dies.


I love the simplicity... yet it has a bit of elegance to it... don't you think?


But then I had this wonderful thing left over... the frame of the leaves...so I just had to make another card. We have a graduation party to go to tomorrow night... for a girl... so this is PERFECT!!!


In case you're wondering, YES... the butterflies go together... super pretty!!!


Everything came together so easily. The hardest part of working with this release was choosing which awesome stamp set and die to use... they are all so amazing!!!

Simon will be giving away a grab bag filled with stamps, paper, and embellishments to one randomly selected commenter on every blog in the hop. The giveaway will remain open until Thursday June 6/6 at 9:00pm.You have many chances of winning a prize.  I love that!!!

Your next stop on the hop is my good friend and amazing card artist Jennifer McGuire. Remember, if you find any broken links along your way, you can head back to the Simon blog for the listing.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a fabulous weekend!
