July 2013 Blog Hop Challenge

By July 15, 2013General


The July Blog Hop is not taking place until July 25th, but we thought we would share the challenge as well as the inspiration photos here to give you a head start.

A day dedicated to seeking inspiration through projects utilizing Papertrey Ink products.   This event allows all of our customers who enjoy sharing inspiration & artwork with their peers do so through their personal blogs.


The actual Blog Hop will take place on July 25th, beginning @ 10 am EST.

Summer is officially in full swing and nothing beats the heat like cool fruity flavors!  The fruits of summer are bold, colorful and just pure eye candy.  This month we challenge you to gain some inspiration from the "Fruits of Summer" color schemes above, using either a portion or all of the colors in a particular scheme.  Look through your stamp collection and don't be afraid to pair these colors up with some unexpected types of images!  Be sure to download and print the Fruits of Summer Color Inspiration sheet below to take straight to your workspace and use as a reference!  We look forward to seeing your creations!

    There will be an InLinkz list up here on my blog when the blog hop starts on July 25th. There is a simple button for you to click that says “add my link” and it gives you directions from there. Super easy! Hope to see you play along on the big day, Melinda!
