Here is my take on the "Fun of Summer"

Size: 12 X 12

Cricut Office Help Cricut Cartridge
Create A Critter Cricut Cartridge
Gypsy by Cricut
Patterned Paper: K&CO Summer Travel Pad
Stampin' Up Paper: Whisper White
Punches: EK Success - Medium Corner Rounder, Bumpy Road Border Punch; Stampin' Up - Word Window, Modern Label.
Stampin' Up: Stampin' Write Journaler - Basic Black
Adhesive: Tombow Mono Adhesive (Permanent), Scotch ATG

Gypsy Measurements
"Summer" (Cricut Office Help CC) - 6.67w X 1.50h
"Fun" (Create A Critter CC) - 3.63w X 2.762h

Green - 7.25 X 11
Red - 2 X 12
Brown - Picture size + 1/8

Cut phrases based on measurements listed above. For the "Fun" cut, you will need to use the hide feature on the "So Fun" phrase so that only the word fun is showing.

Cut layers as directed above. On the Green layer, round the corners at the right end only. Left end stays with corners and goes flush with the page. On red layer, use bumpy road border punch on both sides of the strip to create this look.

Punch (2) word window pieces. On one, put the date and on the other the location. Punch (2) modern label punches, out of different color/patterned paper. Layer punches.

There is my project and instructions on how to go about making it. If you have any questions, as always, please don't hesitate to contact me.

I will be one of the DT members that will be giving out blog candy individually. My blog candy is going to be a mystery. What is better than going to your mailbox and getting a good surprise?

To be eligible for my blog candy, you must leave a comment on this post and tell me what the absolute favorite fun thing to do in the summer is. Please make sure to leave a way to contact you if you are the winner. I will post the winner on Wednesday.

Thank you so much for stopping by to see the Crazy Cat Lady, please continue on now to your next fun summer stop by visiting with Nicole M @ Loving Vintage.
