Welcome to the June Hop & Shop. This is a chance for you to get a final look at the new dies and sets and also have a chance to win a gift certificate by leaving comments. If you've just stumbled upon this post, you'll definitely want to go back to the beginning of the hop over on Kim's blog to make sure you don't miss anything!
Tonight I'm showing you a project I made with the new First Place Award Ribbon die and stamp set. This set is fabulous for making quick, amazing looking projects. I made both a card and a tag for a gift bag. This is actually for my son's teacher - up here in Canada school goes right until the last day of June so I'm feeling pretty ahead of the game right now!
I love that you can create so many different looks and phrases with all the pieces of this stamp set. I added the Die-namics Star Border die to my ribbon tails for a fun look. I paired My Mind's Eye Lime Twist papers with Wild Cherry and Black Licorice cardstocks for layering.
I finished off the inside with the new Open Bracket Border die as well as a sentiment from the Sassy & Sweet stamp set. I wanted my son's teacher to know that I wasn't just paying him lip service when I said he was the best teacher ever.
My friend Megan has me hooked on making tags, so I decided to make one for the gift bag. For teacher gifts this year, I bought some Tervis tumblers and am cutting letters out of vinyl on my Cricut to monogram them. I also used the Banner Day Alphabet to customize the tag with the teachers name.
Well that's all I've got to show you tonight. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to comment for your chance to win. Your next stop along the hop is over to the wildly talented and super sweet Lisa!
