Celebrate Summer at {Cut it Up} and Paper Nest!

Hi Crafters,

Gosh, summer is flying by so quickly! I've been enjoying all the visitors that have crafted with me in the loft this summer! Our next challenge is to celebrate summer at Cut it Up! is sponsored by Paper Nest.
They have some ADORABLE images for all occasions but especially to celebrate summer.  You don't have to use one of their images to enter the design challenge just make sure you've included a die cut. One lucky participant will win a $25.00 gift certificate.

This adorable little fella is Boogie Board Owen. I used a mixture of Stampin' Up! markers and copic markers to color him.  This was my first time coloring printable stamped images, let alone people! The wave frame is from Stretch Your Imagination and the waves are from Life's a Beach

This summer fun little lady is Strawberry Girl.  I used a card from Stretch your Imagination and put a circle in the middle of the front.  I cut the card in half and used that for the card front.  I stitched along the side with some embroidery thread and my sewing machine. 

Looking forward to seeing all your creations celebrating Summer!!

Happy crafting,


  1. These cards are so cute! Love the images, the die cuts you chose, and the stitching!
