CHA Sneak: Summer Samba Day 4!

The Summer Samba CHA Sneaks continue!

(These featured new releases will be available in approximately two weeks!)

"Here Comes the Sun, and I say it's Alright!"


Happy Saturday! Today, Julie  and Rhonda are hosting the blog. 

Up first is Julie with an adorable layout she created using this charming new line!!! Do these papers make you feel just a little bit warm and cheerful? It just makes us smile, we all agree working with this line is a happy maker!

I am back again with a creation from Quick Quotes new Summer Samba collection. This is a collection full of fun bright colors! It was perfect for this photo of my daughter hamming it up in the pool. The vellum was perfect to use along with the journaling spot for my title. Don't those banners add the perfect extra touch?

I just LOVE this new collection. It is absolutely perfect for those summer and vacation photos. I used Spellbinder's Creative Page Tab die to put the year of the vacation. I love these page tab dies. They are so unique in the fact that they not only cut, but emboss too. For my tag I cut and embossed. Love how versatile they are.

Materials Used:
Quick Quotes new Summer Samba collection
Maraschino Cherry powderpuff ink
Spellbinders Creative Page Tabs
Doodlebug twine
Making Memories tiny alphabet stickers


Greetings to you from Rhonda

It's bitter cold here in the midwest, but in my crafty room it's sizzling with the heat of some Summer Samba!!!  This cheerful collection is so much fun!  I think I might need to take a tropical cruise to make some photos to go along with it.  Doesn't that sound like a great idea?  *grin*

There's a little story about my card for today.  I intended on creating this for submission to the recent Paper Crafts call for their sketch.  Due to family illness, this did not get done in the timeframe required for the submission.  So, I thought it would be fun to share it. 

I used my Spellbinders Grand Calibur and the circle dies to create my sun shape.

Julie, if your little girl gets any cuter, you're going to have to lock her away in a tower until she's about 30! LOL! Love the layout and the Summer Samba papers are perfect to go with this adorable pool photo.

Rhonda, your card is awesome too! I love the sort of abstract feeling of it yet the sentiment says it all. There's no mistaking that sun and it's pretty summer rays. The stitching is a really cool finishing touch to your overall design. I love both of these projects... but then it's rare that I don't like what you ladies create.
