Jump On It - July Special bloghop

For this hop, we are featuring a variety of stamp sets you can usually only get as a hostess item.  I've explained the July special promotion, Jump On It, below.  

In this blog hop, if you are coming from Pam's blog you are on the right track.  The hop is one big loop of blogs.  If you are starting here, just look near the end of my post to see the name (in red) of the blog you are to visit next.

I used the hostess set, Paper Bird, a hostess set from the Seasonal Expressions 2 for this layout.

I have lots of fun photos from my garden and other gardens I visit, so I thought I could use this layout for the first page of a garden scrapbook or I could frame it with my favorite picture from my own garden this year.  My color choice was inspired by this week's Color Dare #150 using Sunset, Sweet Leaf, Slate, and White Daisy. Often I tend to use the same old favorite colors and supplies, but when I work on blog hops, I like to challenge myself to use different techniques or supplies I don't normally use.  The Close To My Heart Color Dare prompts are always a good place to start.  I also used washi tape and our spray pen which I don't use too often.

Stamp Sets: Paper Bird and Distressed Backgounds
Washi Tapes: Sunset chevron, Silver Geometric
Ribbon: Slate Diagonal Striped
