July 2014 Blog Hop Challenge

By July 15, 2014General


The July Blog Hop is not taking place until July 25th, but we thought we would share the challenge as well as the inspiration photo 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.



July Blog Hop Inspiration

Check out this gorgeous piece of inspiration I stumbled upon while on Pinterest!  As soon as I saw it, I knew it would make a perfect blog hop!  Here are just a few things that I found inspiring:

  • The patterns and colors in the banner.  A simple banner like this and a sentiment on a crisp white card would be amazing!
  • The gingham envelope with the stitched flap and floral button.  Could easily be recreated with a mini envelope die or for an overall A2 card front.
  • The vintage button cards could be re-created using Button Boutique, paired up with some of the colors and patterns from the other fabrics included in the photo.
  • The dainty embroidered flowers and possibly a sentiment added with Stitched Alphabet.
  • The sweet bouquet of flowers paired with a doily could be interpreted in a million different ways, with dies or stamps!
  • The slightly shabby background could be recreated by swiping ink or paint onto your cardstock, allowing to dry and using a sanding block to remove some of it.
  • That sweet bird!  Use your favorite bird stamps or dies to re-create the patterns and colors used on this one.

I am sure that many of you will come up with even more ideas!  We look forward to seeing all of your creations!
