Taylored Expressions June Blast from the Past Blog Hop!


Hello! I'm excited to be participating in the June Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop! Each month, Taylor invites her customers to participate in this fun hop and feature Taylored Expressions Stamps! The theme for our hop is Old Glory.

If you happened here by chance, please check the full list of participants at the bottom of this post!


I decided to create another pinwheel patterned background, so I kept my card fairly simple other than the pinwheel design. I punched 1 1/4" squares from October Afternoon's Report Card (blue), Seaside (stripe) and Thrift Shop (text), cut them into triangles, arranged them onto cardstock and stitched them all together. I used one of the 4th of July A La Carte stamps for my sentiment (I tried to link it, but it wasn't in the store, so here's a link to all A La Carte stamps). I also used the Stars Impression plate for a little subtle texture at the bottom. Aren't those little button jars just the cutest? I had gotten that at Michael's in the dollar bin last year and thought they made good props.. :)

Here's a detail shot of the pinwheels and embossing:


Thanks so much for hopping by!
