CCMC Summer Collection 01!

Good morning blog readers. For those of you that have subscribed to the Create with Connie & Mary Summer Collections....thank you and we so love to have you visit! I hope you've enjoyed all of our projects this week and there's much more to follow.

For everyone else and for our subscribers, you all get to peek at our Saturday Challenge and this week we have a sketch challenge:

I have so enjoyed our new designer paper in our new Stampin' Up! catalog. Of course we always have wonderful paper but so far, every pack that I've purchased I've fallen in love with. The gingham layer I used is from the Gingham Garden Designer Paper and look how lovely all of these bright, cheery colors look on my card:

I continued on with the stamp set that I used for our first week of our subscription. For those of you that have subscribed, I hope you were pleasantly surprised with my project this week. What I like the most about the Polka Dot Pieces Stamp Set is that almost every stamp image has a coordinating punch. Take a peek at the cute butterfly image:

This card came together quite easily as I had all the right tools! Tomorrow we kick off our 2nd week of our subscription and no, it's not too late to join in. Click HERE to be directed to Create with Connie & Mary to subscribe now!

  1. Totally TOTALLY cute and you have sold me on this set! Smiles, Elizabeth

    1. Thanks Elizabeth. So glad to be designing with you again!

  2. I have yet to use my gingham dsp (yes, I'm hoarding)! Your card has inspired me to use it (I can always buy more, right?)!! So sweet and Summery!

    1. It is so hard not to hoard isn't it Melissa? We have such lovely paper this time around but I'm making myself use it! Thanks for your comment!

  3. I love, love, love your card Debbie!! I really need to buy this paper! Thanks for inspiring me!
