Welcome to the June 2011 Blog Tour. If you've just arrived from Barb's blog, you've come to the right place! Weren't her projects fantastic?! But don't worry, if you have started here, it will be possible to go completely to the end and arrive back here after going to the beginning of the tour!

This month's theme is Summer Mini/Sneak Peek catalog projects. I am totally in love with the new In Colors so I used several of those on my projects plus a couple of new sets from the catalog. Then I had to use my favorite set from the summer mini - Fabulous Florets. This was actually a set I did not plan to buy at first. But now I'm hooked on those gorgeous flowers. Anyway, let's get started!

Ok first up is an adorable snowman set from the new catalog called Snow Much Fun. I just fell in love with the snowmen in the set. They are so cute. So I thought maybe I would get a super early start on my Christmas cards! Crazy, I know. I decided to make this a clear card using the clear window sheets. The 2 images on the stamped in white are from Delicate Doilies, another new set in the catalog. I thought they worked well as snowflakes too! I colored and cut out the snowman and tree and put them on dimensionals on the front of the card. Inside, I stamped more doilies on the crumb cake cardstock and added the sentiment with the modern label punch.

The next card uses those flowers from Fabulous Florets. I decided to do something a little fun and wild. The colors for the flowers are Blushing Bride, Calaypso Coral (*new*), and Poppy Parade. The leaves are stamped in Lucky Limeade (*new*). I think this may be my all time favorite new green color. I love it! I then stamped various doilies from Delicate Doilies in Black on Crumb Cake cardstock. I added some black satin ribbon and the sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

My last project is a 6 x 6 scrapbook page. This is a picture of me and my future sister in law from my bachelorette party. I used another floral image from Fabulous Florets and stamped them in black on Wisteria Wonder (*new*) cardstock. I stamped the leaves again in Lucky Limeade on the First Edition DSP. I stamped several sentiments on Pretty in Pink cardstock. The bottom of the Crumb Cake piece is stamped with another image from Delicate Doilies. The pink DSP is a sneak peek from the Flirtatious collection. All of the papers in this collection are gorgeous!

That is all I have for you today. I hope you enjoyed my projects! Next up is LeeAnn with some more eye candy for you!!
