June Kit, Guest Designer and MORE!

It is a beautiful day in my neighborhood!  Today my kids are HOME FOR THE SUMMER!  Yep.  I yelled it.  I yelled it because I actually like my kids.  LOL  Collin (10) and Isabel (8) are fun, engaging, loving and very bright.  We are going to have a GREAT summer!

Part of that great summer will be scrapbooking with my girl.  Isabel has all of her own stash and her very own spot.  And yes, she even owns a Cricut (thanks grandma!).

So, let's get down to to it so Isabel and I can get scrapping!

First of all, we loved Little Blue Button Stamps so much that they are back for June!

Olga has some fun planned for us on the 12th, so make sure to keep watching!  And stop by and follow her BLOG and like her FACEBOOK to say thanks!

Ready to squeal like a girl?  Our guest designer this month is our wonderful former Design Team member...Sherri Thompson!!!  We are VERY excited to steal Sherri for the month.  I'm still trying to convince her that she totally has time to come back to the Design Team.  LOL

Let's see how wild and crazy our Design Team got with all of these options.

  1. Yeah, Sherrie's back :-) Welcome ack. This will be a great month. Such lovely kits for us to choose from.

  2. There's some yummy kits there.Love this months inspiration.

  3. Oh, dear. The Sound of Music is far superior to You've Got Mail. What're we gonna do about this?!! LOL *music teacher dies a little*

  4. Can I just combine both kits? hahahahahaha

  5. It has rained for about four days in a row, just enough to keep me from mowing. Yesterday was dry and this morning looks like I will get my chance to trim the tufts today. Kit will have to wait. Perhaps a thunderstorm will brew up for the afternoon? After wishing for it to stop, now I am hoping for it to start up again? Silly me.

    I really, really like both the kits for different reason. Have photos in mind for each of them. Looks like I will be building them both.

  6. Glad to see June's kits, amd may have to do both and all the add ons too! I was traveling in May so unfortunately. I didn't get to use my May kit but maybe twice???

  7. GREAT kit choices! Loooove all the amazing colors!

  8. A choice - oh no, which one to pick!!!

  9. I don't have a blog, so I won't be able to show pictures, but I was inspired by the After the Storm Kit. I gathered lots of papers I didn't even realize I had that were green, blue and yellow. I did one splurge and purchased the jillibean sticker sheet because it was just too cute. Then I was able to make ALL the embellishments using my silhouette! So excited and can't wait to use the kit.

  10. You are such a tease, Erica! I want to see it! I think you can also link to photo bucket or Flicker....
