Summer Blog Hop with {a flair for buttons}

Welcome to the summer blog hop with A Flair for Buttons!  Stop by each blog and make a comment for your chance to win some of the hottest embellishments out there!  Unlike some blog hops, this one is going to last three whole days!  From Friday 7am to Sunday at midnight.  I will be selecting my winner on Monday and announcing on Tuesday.  So be sure to check back to see if you are the winner of a set of 8 flair of your choice!

When I heard that this was going to be a Summer blog hop, I knew exactly which paper line would go with my new shiny summer flair!  My layout today consists of Crate Paper's Pier Collection.  Paper, accent stickers, standouts, chipboard and Studio Calico's vellum shapes.  Any color paper collection would match these fun in sun flair.


I started with my base paper and decided I would chop up the paper with all of the beach umbrellas.  Because I have a paper addiction, I had also bought the 6x6 paper pad and decided to chop up those umbrellas too.  I think this layout needed the smaller ones.  Some I placed flat and some I raised with a thin layer of foam tape for added dimension.  After carefully selecting my flair, I decided to back some with stickers, some with a clump of chipboard and stickers and my favorite, the sun, just needed to stand alone.  Of course it needed to be at the top of my page shinning down on my fun summer activities.  


How do you attach vellum?  It is tricky so I attached mine with Idea-ology's Tiny Attacher.




Now, head over to each of these design team members personal blogs to increase your chances of winning, but don't forget to leave a comment.

  8. The Pier is such a fab collection; so many fun elements from which to choose.

    I often attach my vellum with my tape roller in an area that won't be seen or I use a glue dot and then layer rhinestones or pearls over top of the dots.
