Getting Cricky "Summertime" Design Team Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends! I'm so happy you could join us for this month's Getting Cricky Design Team Blog Hop!!  We'd like to invite you to visit each of our DT Sisters' blogs (it's just half the crew this month -- you'll see the other half next month!!) and our very special Guest Designer, Melissa!!

Throughout the hop we'll be showing what we love about . . . . SUMMERTIME!!  From parties and celebrations to campfires and s'mores,  we hope you'll enjoy each and every project along the way!!  Sooooo, let's get hopping. . . .

If you've hopped along from Jessie then you are in the right place!! If you are just joining me from your dashboard, or reading this via email, please be sure to CLICK HERE to start at the beginning with Kristal's blog (you'll want to catch up on all the FUN!!). . . .

For my project, I'm featuring the "Owly Hoo Sentiments" stamp set. For more details or to make this set YOURS, please click on the preview!!


What does summer mean to me? For me this year, spring & summertime are all about baby showers! Both of my daughters-in-law were pregnant at the same time! My grandson was already born on St. Patrick's Day & my granddaughter is due on July 7th. So needless to say, I've been buried in baby shower projects for quite a while now! Plus, I was just asked to do the decor for another shower in July. Phew!!

If you follow my blog then you've seen some of my shower projects already. Well, my daughter-in-law, Vanessa's baby shower is this Saturday! I was feeling pretty overwhelmed trying to finish everything, so I just decided I would feature this project for the blog hop. After all, my summertime is all about baby showers so far! Anyway, here are the party favors I've been working on the last couple of days . . . .




Here are the details:

The candies are Hershey's "Nuggets", which already have a gold or silver foil wrapper on them. I covered them with paper from Heidi Grace. I cut the paper into 1 x 3" strips, put a little bit of adhesive on both ends & wrapped it around the candy. The ribbon is from from my stash & unmarked. I believe the little 4 x 6" cello bags are from Michael's. See above for the stamp details. I had to make 50 of these, which was a little time consuming but super simple!

***********

We'd also like to share TWO BRAND NEW stamp sets that are now available for pre-order with an expected ship date of May 25th!! If you want to be one of the FIRST to own these SUPER-CUTE sets, you'll definitely want to order TODAY (clicking on the previews will take you directly to the order page)!!. . . .
