A little Summer Breeze

My first official DT projects are up today over on My Little Shoebox blog, and I thought I'd share them with you here too. ;)

I altered this clipboard for Caroline to do her schoolwork on, and she LOVES it, especially the glittery alpha stickers. I love that the argyle print make it feel school-ish too. ;)

I also made some cards. Going with the school-theme, I made my own "argyle" with a Fiskars squeeze punch. Then I added the little birdy stamp to give it just a touch of whimsy.

I made this one layering a lot of the die-cuts. (I LOVE those things!) They're a great way to "ground" your sentiment on the card so it's not just floating in middle.

And last is this little card. I'll admit that I didn't come up with the 'hang in there' idea for the clothesline stickers that are all the rage. But I couldn't resist NOT using it either. Especially when I have several friends that could use it right now. ;)
And as you may have already guessed, this month the MLS DT was sponsored by Fiskars and I generously received two punches, Square-A-Licious squeeze punch, and the Effervescence Border Punch. Before now I'd never used a squeeze punch, and I really like using them! It's so easy! My girls like punching with it too. And of course I love any border punch that's made, so Effervescence is no different. Thank you Fiskars for being so generous to me! :D
