You Made It Monday Vol. 27

It's almost summer and I was really enjoying the thought of it being so close this weekend.  So much so, that I decided to celebrate summer with some fun projects that really capture the feeling of the season.  I found some of your older creations along with some new uses of these fun summery products.  I think you are going to really enjoy them.

Lisa, of Embellish My World, shared this cute card with us during one of our Monthly Meetups.

How cute are those patterned Flip Flop Dies?  I especially love how she planted them in the sand on this layered Long & Skinny Rectangle.  What a cool way to create a scene and the Sunshine Die is perfectly offset in the scene at the top.  The sentiment finishes off the card in such a cute way stamped on the Stitched Sentiment Flag Die.  Adorable!

This next card is a newer creation from Darnell, of djkardkreations.

I don't know about you but this card makes me want to find some gold and coral flip flops.  I just love the gold flecks in Darnell's shaker created with Stitched Mats: Circles.  Such a perfect frame!  The Flip Flops are just itching to stroll through that golden sand.  Can't blame them there!  Awesome creation.

Now for another set of cute shoes from, Kim.

I'm having a tough time deciding what my favorite part of the flip flops Kim created is.  The floral soles?  The twine bows?  How's a girl to choose?  Make sure to go check out Kim's blog, Joyful Creations with Kim, to read all about this super fun card.  Her post gave me a chuckle.

Our final creation is a really fun group of tags from Cathy of The Empty Nest Crafter.

These are oldies but goodies and perfectly summery!  Really, could there be a cuter way to get a gift certificate?  The Folding Tag Die - Original is so cute with the polkadot and chevron paper and the Snarky Sentiment couldn't be more perfect with the treat these tags are holding.  The colors totally make me think of summer and the addition of the sun drives home that feeling.  The best part?  Cathy used the bow from Flip Flop Dies, making this project totally fit with all my other flip flop cards!  Ha ha.
