Hello June~ So happy you're here! I can't remember a summer break I have been more excited for and I don't really know what the difference is other than I think I'm relaxing a bit as a mom. Actually, I'm sure I am and it feels so good. Our first real day on summer break and I love the sounds of my little one drifting throughout the house, her toys spread out here and there, taking her with me on errands, stopping to lay down and snuggle together, not having to say "not now" so much because we have more "us" time...she is my focus.
My project today was created for the Simple Stories blog and uses many of their Simple Basics products in the Summer Fresh Collection. I have to say that the Summer Fresh collection is my all time favorite summer line...so much to love about it including the denim and burlap paper, sweet florals, plaid, chevron, polka dots, etc.
I created a set of three cards and embellished a bag that coordinates. I used my Papertrey Ink Seeing Stars dies to cut different sizes of stars in coordinating patterns and then stitched them either around the edges or down the center to add a homespun feel and more texture. I love how stitching can do that so quickly and easily.
The supplies used on this project can be found on the Simple Stories blog HERE.
Thanks so much for visiting!
