By July 25, 2013Blog Hop

Welcome everyone to the July 2013 Papertrey Blog Hop!  We are so thrilled to see you here!  First, the challenge…

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!

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!


Melissa S. used the new Delightful Dahlia Additions to create this stunning card.  The contrast of the stripes on the tag with the detail of the flower really make this project pop!

Leigh Penner made this bright and cheery card using Embroidered Blooms.  The layout and the way the flower arrangement balances out the sentiment placement is just perfectly executed!

Maureen P. designed this multi-layer beauty using Rosie Posie.  I love how she added so much depth and detail using the various mats under the flowers.  It really sets the stage for them!

Congratulations to all the winners!  Please send a note to customer service and provide them with the email address you would like your gift certificate sent to!  And a BIG thank you to everyone who played along!  There were some amazing projects shared this month!!!
