Taste of Summer Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 1 of Paper Crafting World/Cooking With Cricut’s Taste of Summer Blog Hop!  I’m so glad you came!  Both teams are playing together to bring you this two-day smorgasbord.  You should have arrived at my blog from Tiggerscraps, Marji’s blog.  If not, you should go back to Cooking With Cricut and start from the beginning so you don’t miss anything!

We’re drooling over all sorts of summer treats!  My mother used to make a great strawberry shortcake.  Here she is with one of her specialties:

Mommy, circa 1970s

Looks yummy!!  I made two shaped cards using PCW’s Bear With Shortcake Girl.  I love to make shaped cards; they’re so much FUN!

The card is about 5.6 inches high.  I used my Cricut Expression and Sure Cuts A Lot.  To get the “Mmmm” I used CK Cursive font and my Cricut markers.  I should do that more often.  I like the way it turns out!!

Now on to Jamie’s blog, Scrappin’ 2 Baby Girls to see what she has cooked up!



About Evelyn

I created this little blog so that I could have a place to show different crafts that I make for my family, my friends, my students, and myself! I have always enjoyed crafting. I particularly love paper, and that's what I'm currently working with.
