Stampin Friends Summer Fun Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin Friends July Blog Hop! This month's theme is "Summer Fun". If  you're following along the hop, you've arrived from Lynn Streifert spectacular blog.

This month we have 3 awesome guest hoppers:

Let's get started....

For my 1st Summer Fun Project, I decided to use Stampin' Up!'s Fresh Fruit Stamp Set. This summer my family and I are into doing lots of "water with fruit" to help curtail this hot and humid weather here in Hawaii. We are having so much fun creating different fruit combos to add to our water that I thought that this would be been a perfect match for our theme.

Here are the dimensions for the cards:

Base layer - 4 1/4" x 11" (Fold in half)

1st layer - 4" x 5 1/4"

2nd layer - (Desiner Series Paper) 3 3/4" x 5"

3rd layer - 3' x 4"

4th layer - 2 7/8" x 3 7/8"

For my 2nd project, I decided to make a box to hold these set of cards.

Here is the cutting diagram for the Card Box:

Start with a piece of card stock measuring 8" x 11".

With the 8" side against on the top Score at 1/2", 1 1/4" and   7 1/4".

With the 11" against the top of your scoreboard, score at 3/4", 5 1/4", 6" and 10 1/2"
