Swap to Hop Blog Hop with Scrappin' Sista Swaps - July 12th-13th

Welcome to the “Swap to Hop Blog Hop” with Scrappin’ Sista Swaps. This is the last stop aboard the hop train.  Today the swappers are bringing you some very special projects created using the cuts we exchanged during our Summer Animal Cut swap!

You are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to start here. That way you’ll be able to get in on all the fun!!!

Now that all my kiddos are getting older
I feel more comfortable going to the pool
with all three of them
As many of us know we try out best to keep up
with towels and bags
I created a summer fun pool key chain
to hook onto their large bag
 This image was designed by our hostess Christel
 I painted a wooden birdhouse that i bought last year on clearance.
Cute beach theme
Printed out a picture of my kiddos with a contact information
and used my Your Story Laminate machine
 Added a key ring
Here’s the line-up in case you get lost along the way.

Leslierahye'sScorchin' Hot Summer Steampunk Celebration Blog Hop 2♥13 - July 1st

hosted by Leslierahye
If I can alter something that people would discard you know
I would do it in a heart beat
in my last posting I created a steampunk dress form wall decor

I used the frame the wings came from
painted with Tim Holtz Distress paints and Distress Stains
used UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) and Heat Inks in the melting pot
placed the textured Gear textured Tread down 
and placed my chipboard facing down on top of textured tread to get the imprint
to show on the other side
 I added silver and white rub-n-buff on top of 
texture to give it that pop
I used Labatt's Blue Canadian beer cans to cut out the flowers

I am happy with the results

Ranger - Clear UTEE (Ultimate Thick Embossing Enamel)
Ranger - Heat It Inks for UTEE Red and Blue
Ranger - Melt Art Textured Threads - Gears
Tim Holtz - Distress Paints - Chipped Sapphire and Fire Brick
Time Holtz - Distress Stains Pewter
Rub-n-Buff - Silver and White
Time Holtz - Distress Flower Die
MISC embellishments
