Welcome! It’s time for the Wacky Watercooler May Blog Hop!!!
You may have come from the talented Marsha Reed’s blog. If not, I’m glad you are joining us. This weekend our hop will have three projects.
I decided to go with a fun, whimsical masculine theme in addition to the three projects –
ONE. Something that is retiring I will miss.
Mine is the basic shaped framelits and basic shaped punches. There is just too many to work with here or to list. I created this card with a few of my favorites – the larger circle framelits and a few of the handheld basic shaped punches.
This card is a 4 inch round card, made using the Circles Collection Framelits.
I made the ‘cake slice’ using the retiring Scalloped Oval Punch, Chevron Punch, and the Cherry On Top Washi Tape. I used the retiring Something to Say Stamp Set (oh yeah, it’s on SALE). Here is a tutorial how to make this cake slice.
TWO. Masculine project, made with retiring or carryover items.
I made this card using retiring the Circles Framelits, Cherry On Top Washi Tape, and again, the Something to Say Stamp. The card stock and D A D stamp will carry over (whew!).
And, of course the coordinating inside. It’s just too cute not to show.
THREE. New, upcoming item or a carryover that we really like.
Well, I have not done a pre-order (I know, what’s up with that?). So, I went with this –
The Mini Treat Bag Thinlits. I used the same D A D carryover stamp set, Party with Cake, and added the also carrying over set, Timeless Textures. The Triple Banner Punch and Stapler – yep – carrying over!
The pull out for the bag. Can’t forget that! It’s just as cute. Great to add a gift card or little treat on the card too!
So, again, a nice spread of fun, whimsical, coordinating ‘manly’ items here. All the fussy cutting…….ahhhh…..I love it! Fussy cutting is therapy for me!! Lol!!
