Paper Made Bakery July Release Day & Blog Hop: You make everyday special



Happy July and Welcome to the 

July Release Day & Blog Hop!

You should have arrived here from the Paper Made Bakery blog, if not, that's where you'll want to start for all of the fun!

If you get lost along the way, the Paper Made Bakery blog has the hop listing!


Check out the newest kit



I'm seriously SMITTEN by this set...the colors, the patterns, the stamps!

Are you ready?

I scrapbooked!


The design for this layout originally started with a 12x12 white base and 3.25 inch squares....um, it wasn't hitting me...at all.  This is when I insert the fact that "why yes, I did cut out 9 different squares of paper"....don't you worry, those will be incorporated into other Paper Made Bakery projects!

So I fell back onto something I love...tags.  I cut out tags and tied them all together with the Pirouette Swiss Dot tabs that I stitched down with metallic silver thread.

It's all to coordinate with the gorgeous Tiara Bling cardstock that comes in the kit...

LOVE LOVE LOVE 

that stuff.


I was able to incorporate some of the sentiments from the NEW Fresh Squeezed Stamps set

Everyday Expressions

There is something about this color palette that just sings to me.


Of course I wanted to also design a card:


There's that awesome Tiara Bling cardstock again...oh yes, and another tag!

I actually made the card before the layout...isn't that multi-layer bloom awesome?  

I used the metallic thread again on the top of the tag.

I was inspired by the latest



The awesome Angi Barrs is up next, I know that she has something oh-so-spectacular to share:


P.S.  Don't forget about the rafflecopter!  A give-a-way of Jane's awesome buttons!
