To kick off the fun this week Caly has a fabulous S’more the Merrier/Forest Backdrop card and video tutorial! You can watch the video below or click HERE to watch at our YouTube channel.

Thanks for watching!

Caly and her family love to make s’mores! So, the S’more the Merrier set has her thinking of this fun summer activity! She used Mountain Stencil to begin building this happy scene! Then she added the Forest Backdrop to frame the S’more the Merrier critters who are enjoying the gooey treats!

Megan‘s fun Reveal Wheel card features a cool underwater scene with Duh-nuh Flip-Flop, Mermaid for You Flip-Flop and Ocean Shell-fie! She use Reveal Wheel Square Add-On to leave room at the top for the cute greeting combining Finley’s ABCs and Critter Chatter!

Joy‘s gorgeous floral arrangement puts the spotlight on Happy Hibiscus, Tropical Leaves and Tropical Vine Borders! She used bright tropical colors of cardstock backed with Watercolor Wishes Rainbow paper in Larimar. She added a sweet birthday message from Happy Happy Happy!

Karin created the cutest birthday card with our adorable little Tiny Birthday Friends! I love the fun grid design she used and the happy colors!

Samantha‘s tropical design starts with an amazing alcohol ink background! She cut the panel using Simple Stripes: Diagonal to add even more wonderful pattern! She colored the toucans with Zig markers to go with the tropical theme. Then she added them to a Magic Iris Tropical Leaves Add-On die cut from vellum.

      1. We always went Camping when I was a kid and we continued this with our girls and as soon as the tend is built up summer has officially started. Of course there’s a BBQ included to make the day even more perfect.

  2. I love walking along the waves with my family and reading a book under an umbrella with the sound of seagulls and waves in the background.

  3. Any kind of water fun is awesome and then sitting in the sun to warm up, dry off and to just relax and listen to great music is my kind of day! Loved the cards, so cute.

  5. My community has a lovely pool and I always enjoy spending time at the pool with friends and family.

  10. I love working in my garden in the summer. All the beautiful flowers look so pretty and make me happy. After an afternoon of working in the garden, sitting on my swing in front of my fire pit with a nice cold drink in hand provides the perfect ending to a wonderful summer day!

  11. Our community has “open air weekends” where they shut down the main street to traffic and set up tables outside. It draws a good crowd. There is live music, places to eat and drink and racks and tables from the local shops. They even have sprinklers for the kids and games like corn hole and giant connect 4. I love being out there and seeing people!

  87. My favorite summer activity is definitely camping…..Where I live there are too many forest fires and smoke to camp now though. So I will make cards with camping activities instead.

  88. My favorite summer activity is enjoying a refreshing frozen treat at our local natural vegan ice cream spot!

  89. I love to go on adventures that I’ve never experienced before. Just finished a boat trip up into a remote area on Vancouver Island where I live. Learned how to bait a prawn trap, drop and later pull it up and have prawns in a stir fry an hour later. Not bad for a 64 yr old – came home to my Lawn Fawn order and am organizing a card making weekend when I come back next week from a quilting retreat at a lake a few hours away. Making up for lost time now that we can get out more.

  90. When I used to live in a place with a swimming pool, my favorite activity was swimming in the summer! Spend hours in that water and play water games with everyone there.

  91. Walking along the ocean in the early morning or just after sunset. My other favorite summertime thing is making (and drinking) white wine sangria with nectarines, mangos and Rainer cherries! Great cards TFS!!
