Create A Quick and Easy Hello Sunshine Card + Video

By | 08/12/2020

The Simon Says Stamp August card kit was another fun kit.  It is all about summer!  There were 2 stamp sets this month and the usual patterned paper, cardstock, envelopes, sticker sheets, and enamel ant embellishments!  I always feel like this is a great value for my money.  It is one of the few monthly craft kits that I still get and plan to continue to receive.  I like that even though I’m a subscriber, they send a monthly invoice and if the kit preview looks like something that just isn’t me, I don’t have to get it that month.  It’s my choice!

I used the larger of the two stamp sets called Hello Sunshine to create my card for this week’s Paper Craft Crew Challenge.  This week’s challenge is a theme challenge: Vacation Paradise.

I live in a place people flock to during the summer and fall.  It is a vacation paradise and I’m doing the staycation thing anyway.  I don’t feel the need to escape a place that has beaches and parks I can walk to and ride my bike to and that also has a private swimming pool in the back yard.  Plus…there is that great room filled with craft supplies!
