August SOTM - Tutti Frutti Blog Hop


Welcome to our August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop. In this blog hop we are featuring Tutti Frutti Summer. This set includes 15  FUN fruity images for your summer pages and cards! If you arrived here from Brandi R - crzy4scrapbook Blog you are on the right track. This hop is a big circle. Just look for the next blog link at the bottom of my post. If you are just getting started on the hop, when you get back to me you will know you have completed the circle! If you get lost along the way, you can find the entire list of hoppers HERE

This is such a CUTE stamp set!  I love the layout that the CTMH artist created to showcase this set.  Did you see it in the Blog Badge above?  So hard to top that!!   I wanted to create a summer layout with this set also.   Again.... I turned to our Make It From Your Vol. 5 for pattern inspiration!  (I have been having so much fun using the patterns from this book!!) 

Here is my Summer Layout....

I used ALL cardstock for this page - Bluebird, Canary and Smoothie.  I used tone on tone stamping to stamp a background onto the light side of the cardstock.  Pool Rules (C1897) is the perfect background stamp!   I really wanted to showcase clean lines and bright colors on this page so I chose not to color in the stamped fruit images in the corners of my page. To pull in some Smoothie color on the left page, I stamped Hello Summer in Smoothie and stamped the fruit with black ink onto Smoothie cardstock.

I tried different variations of stamping for "Fun in the Sun" on the right page, first stamping the title in Canary and Smoothie but it just didn't flow.  I finally opted for a Black ink title with fruit slices stamped in Canary and Smoothie which seemed to work much better.  

I added white dots and black bursts to finish the embellishing of the layout.  This one was so much fun!  I can't wait to add photos.
