Welcome everyone to the July 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge…

This month's inspiration is all about pairing up beautiful summer colors as this wonderful season begins to come to a close.  Put together some citrusy hues along with some pretty floral images to create the perfect project that embodies everything summer.  We look forward to seeing your creations!

I have included an inlinkz list below for you to add your link to your blog hop project.  This type of link list will allow you to select a thumbnail to go along with your link, making it easy to go back and find a project later that might have perked your interest.  

You have until 11:30pm EST tonight (July 25th) to add your link to this list.  THREE random participants will be selected to win a $25 PTI Gift Certificate to spend however they choose.  They will be announced and highlighted here, on my blog, tomorrow morning.  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!


Amber Kroening kept it simple with a polka dot pattern that followed along with the color inspiration provided in the photo.  I love how she maintained the clean look of her card, but added texture with the Simple Stripes Impression Plate.  The three small hears stamped at the end of the sentiment helped to tie everything together too.

Carol S. made a beautiful floral card using a Flower Fusion bloom.  It really inspired me the way she added the subtle background to help add balance to everything.  I also like the way she added her sentiment in pink, sometimes I forget to try stamping colored ink on colored cardstock, especially when it comes to sentiments.

cards by cara opted to make a shaker card.  I love how she incorporated all the bits of inspiration colors with the "confetti" inside the shaker.  Also, embellishing the exterior of the shaker window took the whole project up a notch.

Congratulations to all of the winners.  Please email Customer Service and provide the email address that you would like your $25 gift certificate sent to.  And thanks to everyone else who played along.  It was fun seeing some of you even incorporate some of the things you learned at Stamp-a-faire!  Have a great rest of the week!
