Fun 'N Crafty July Blog Hop

Welcome to the July Fun 'n Crafty blog hop. This month, we are each featuring designer series paper (DSP) from the new Stampin' Up! annual catalog. The timing couldn't be better since DSP is on sale this month. I hope you'll take the time to visit all of the blogs in our hop and then come back and let me know which DSP is your favorite!

I used the gorgeous Lullaby designer series paper for my projects. It is a definite favorite of mine from the new annual catalog. I wanted to create projects that showed the range of this DSP. While it is perfect for baby cards or scrapbook pages, it also makes a great background for both feminine and masculine cards. 

The first card I made features the Lullaby DSP with the the Something For Baby and Tag Talk stamp sets. The colors used in the card are Crisp Cantaloupe and Hello Honey. The Baby's First framelit dies make it easy to cut out the ducks. 

The second card is a quick and easy masculine card that I created to show the versatility of the Lullaby DSP. It features the Starburst Sayings stamp set. The sentiment was cut out using the coordinating framelit dies set. The colors featured on this card are Baked Brown Sugar and Coastal Cabana. 

The third card is another quick and easy card to make, this time with a feminine look. I used two of the Lullaby papers in this card with one as a background and another as an accent behind the sentiment. The stamp I used for the sentiment is from Chalk Talk. The banner accents behind the sentiment were made with the banner punch and I also used the label bracket punch to add a Crisp Cantaloupe accent behind the sentiment. 

My final project is my favorite! I created a banner using the Lullaby DSP and Something for Baby stamp set. The banner framelits made it easy to create the banners and the Baby's First framelits made cutting out my stamped images a breeze. The alphabet is the new Epic Alphabet.
