Hi everyone, can you believe it's blog hop time again...where did last month go??? Have you been enjoying yourself so far? I myself, can't wait to see what everyone has created!! Before we get started, I need to apologize for my photos. I have no clue what is going on, but my camera is having a melt down....sorry!!!
Here are the deets:
When: The blog hop starts on August 11th at 6 AM, PST. However, you have until August 12th, 2013, 11:59 pm PST, to leave comments on all the blogs (to be eligible for a prize).
Why: To be inspired by fun DeNami Design creations and also the chance to win mini shopping sprees on the DeNami Design website!

Now that all that's out of the way, you should have arrived here from the very sweet and talented Greta Hess' blog. If not, don't worry, you can go to the DeNami blog for the full list to get back on track!
I know y'all are expecting multiple projects from me as usual. However, I kind of do and don't have multiple projects this month ;) I made a little set of note cards to fit various occasions.
I went with different themes and a broad color palette, but stuck with the same layout so they all "matched".
- polka dot background
- decorative flourish
- small solid hibiscus
- solid leaf sprig
- round leafy tree
- tropical drink set
- mini butterfly
- polka dot butterfly
- small spring flowers
- assorted greeting set
- heartfelt greeting set
- everyday greeting set
- thoughtful greeting set
- thoughtful greeting set
And you can't have note cards with out a little holder of some kind, right? I simply dressed up a DeNami 3X3 boutique box with a strip of black cardstock, then added a strip of charcoal that I had punched both long edges on and added a doily. If I did it over again I would leave off the doily. I wanted to really draw your eye to the sentiment so I punched a black scalloped circle and a piece of velum to soften it before adding the elegant word plate with the sentiment from the all occasion trifle stamp set.
My cards are 3X3 and the envelopes are actually 3 1/8 X 3 1/8. The envelopes are just a little bit big for my box, but since I only made 6 cards there's plenty of room to put the envelopes in at a little bit of an angle so everything fits nicely.
Well that's it for me today, hope you liked my little project. Now off you go to visit with Larissa Heskett on her little blog. I bet she has something spectacular to share with all of us!!!
