Stampin' Addicts Summer Mini Blog Hop - The Open Sea

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts 2011 summer mini blog hop!! Come join us for a tour of the wonderful products Stampin' Up! has to offer in the latest mini!! If you are following the hop in order than you just came from Allison's site Sweet Impressions where she featured the Nautical Expedition DSP. I'll be featuring the set The Open Sea which goes perfectly with this paper!

I decided to make a card first and I love how this came out!!

My husband thought it was very Americana which wasn't my intention it just worked out that way!

I knew I wanted to create a scrapbook page and this idea has been haunting me for a bit now so I finally put it to use to make this page.

Lastly I made this little gift trio box and I've gotta say this was my favorite project!!


It'll be a perfect Father's Day gift filled with some chocolate and maybe a nice little love note!! After the hop I will post each project with a little more detail so be sure to stop back by, or you can subscribe and get email notifications when I post to my blog.

Hope that you have enjoyed the hop so far but there is still plenty more to see. So head on over to Sarah's Ink Spot where she is showcasing Pretty Postage. Happy Stamping!!
