New Summer Mini Blog Hop...

And it's here... Wow, packed full of wonderful new products, accessories and ideas. I am now going to show you my sneak peak from Sunday in full and another card, we will be making the first 2 at card class tonight.
If you've come over from Christa, welcome, wasn't her projects lovely, thank you for sharing.

So in the following projects I have used the new stamp set Apothecary Art and the match Framelits Dies called Labels collections (see page 16 and 17 of the New Summer Mini here).  These are wonderful and so versatile, as you can see we've made a card and a matching gift box with some notelets in.

This is a card we will be making using this wonderful Stamp Set. The colours I've used are Pool Party, Calypso Coral (turning into one of my favourite) and Whisper White. I used the embossing folder for the background and coloured in the flowers with our marker pens.

This is very much using similar colours: Calypso Coral, Whisper White but with Lucky Lime. I used the Berry Blossom  Papers that were in the Spring mini, which we sadly said goodbye to, yesterday!

 This is just a very quick and simplae card using the same Stamp Set, along with Calypso Coral and Daffoldil Delight.

If you would like to get your hands on any of the products used or anything else in the Summer Mini, I am offering FREE postage on all orders that can be either picked up from me or can be delivered locally (Chelmsford area). So do get in touch as this offer runs out on the 14th of May.

So back to the Blog Hop, carry on getting loads of ideas of projects that you can do using products from the New Summer Mini, by popping over to Laura .
Enjoy and pop back soon,
