August Blog Hop

Happy August 1st, the eight month of the year, wow. This year continues to fly by and I'm having fun creating throughout the year.  Welcome back to another fun blog hop with my fellow Stamping' Up! Demonstrators with Di's Country INKers. We have fun during our monthly blog hops with various themes and this month the theme is summertime. Can't wait to see what they have in store for us.

So, how did the theme inspire me to create this month?  Well, this year a goal of mine has been to read more, especially during the summer.  At the beginning of the year, I made a goal to read 31 books and so far I have read 28! I've always enjoyed reading and while my reading list continues to grow each year, I have been more intentional about reading. Right now I'm currently reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, I checked out the book from my local library. The other five books, I'm hoping I can finish reading them before the end of 2018. 

So, my project for the blog hop is a bookmark featuring the host stamp set "Hand Delivered", such fun set and so many possibilities with it. It was fun to color in the books.  I'm also learning how to color better, viewing videos to pick up some fun techniques. Even with creativity, there is always something for me to learn and improve on.

You can see the Shimmery White cardstock better in this photo. The sequins are fun and so easy to use, adds a fun touch to your project, no? I'll be creating more bookmarks with this stamp set and giving them as gifts. 

Up next is Mary, can't wait to see what fun project she created. 

Below is our lineup for the blog hop:


Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day! Until next time. Oh, and if you have any book recommendations, please let me know.
