Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the May Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sandra Roberts' blog (great project, Sandra!). Welcome one and all.

This month's theme celebrates the men in our lives and features products from either the annual catalog or the mini catalog. I was so torn on which stamp set to use so my choice is Lilypad Lake Stamp Set, the coordinating Lakeside dies, and supporting dies from the Seasonal Layers dies, all from the annual catalog.
You may recall that I used the Lilypad Lake Stamp Set for last month's card, but this month I am changing the lake scene to a beach scene with the chair die and drink die from Seasonal Layers. See how easy that was! You can do it!

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!. Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Sue McDonald.
This is a full list of our bloggers this month and their links in case you find yourself off track:

(January 3 - June 2, 2020)
All good things must come to an end. The Mini Catalog and the 2019-20 Annual Catalog will both retire on June 2. There are still many great products available -- product that does not carry over to the New 2020-21 Annual Catalog are available now while supplies last. If you have placed an order from me over the past year, look for your personal copy of the 2020-21 Annual Catalog in the mail the third week of May. If you did not place an order last year and are interested in receiving a copy, please contact me immediately and let's fix that. If you do not already have a demonstrator, it would be my pleasure to be your enabler (er, I mean demonstrator) and send you a copy of your very own. Chock full of inspiration and ideas. 

As always, if you have any questions, or need assistance, contact me in your favorite method of communication. :)


  1. Just makes you want to be there relaxing in that chair - doesn't it! Great card - TFS

    1. Thanks, Maureen. I love that chair, and the drink can really be anything you want it to be!

  2. I love all the details on your design. I can just feel the warm breeze!

    1. Thank you, Shirley. The beach scenes are, of course, a favorite of mine!

  3. Love the beach scene. This is very gender generic.

    1. A fun card and, yes, could be for either gender. :)

  4. I'd love to be sitting in the chair with a cold drink watching sailboats. Lovely card that pulls you right in! Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks, Terri. It is a relaxing favorite place for me!!

  5. Your card is certainly inspiring, draws you in to the scene. Thanks for Sharing
