Welcome to the 100 Days of Summer blog hop! If you are just joining us, be sure to go back and start HERE.  If you get lost or sidetracked, the line up of blogs is at the bottom of this post.  

So, let's get started! I loved working with this line, it is so warm and cheerful...here is what I came up with:


Summer:
I cut some of the circled patterned paper to shape for the border on this LO, and I love how it turned out.  I also cut some whole circle out for some of the embellishments.  
I know that the mats/cards are designed for the divided page protectors, but they also work so well for an 8.5x11 page.  I find it difficult a lot of times to cut the design on 12x12 paper to fit my page...but this way I can fit in the whole design by using the photo mats.


Backyard BBQ:
I punched the littlest circle from the striped pattern paper, but I also punched out some of the barcode with it...I thought it gave it an interesting touch.
Besides the letter stickers,there are also so many amazing simple title options.


Classic Summer Fun:
I also used some paper from Cosmo Cricket's 'Upcycle' line in this LO.


!00 Days of Summer gift card holders:


These gift card holders are made out of a scored, and embellished journal card, and a 2.5x4 piece of patterned paper.  So easy, and quick...and perfect for any occasion.

That's it! I hope you enjoyed my projects. Don't forget to leave a comment, and now you are off to see Sharon!

wow Kelly! I love how you cut that circle design paper to make a border. I've been hoarding that sheet of paper because I think it is so cute! Now I can use this idea for a couple of pages and cards. Your gift card holders are a great idea.
