Summer SVG ShinDig Blog Hop! (plus GIVEAWAY!)

School's Out and Summer's In! Let's celebrate sunny days with something special. Let's go on a Summer SVG ShinDig Blog Hop!


First, let me say a big THANK YOU to Belinda Brown for inviting me to this hop. There is so much talent in this group that I am really flattered that they are letting me in. If you have arrived here from the very talented Jessica, you are on the right track. If you would like to start from the beginning, just go to Belinda's Bee's Hive of Drama and start hopping until you get back here. In case you get lost along the way, just come back and continue from this list:



Today's project is a series of 3 cards with one sentiment. The idea came about when I was looking at the Lettering Delight's Backyard Fun SVG set


See that little ant on the bottom left corner? When I was preparing for my Beach Party feature, I really wanted to add that ant in the scene but it didn't happen. I was chuckling at the idea of having it walk on the grill and feeling really hot. Something like that:


Mr. Ant was supposed to be sweating and since I can't draw, you are just going to have to imagine this little ant sweating little beads of sweat as it tries not to land inside the grill. I guess that'll be really hot! lol.


I had so much fun with the ant I couldn't stop with the one card so I made another. This time our friend is feeling the heat of the Summer Sun. If the temperature this year is going to be as high as what we had in WA last year, that ant wouldn't be the only crying "That's Hot!". I'll be joining him!



Good things come in threes so I had to go on and make one more card. Mr. Ant is supposed to be on this last card as well but I took him out at the last minute. He was supposed to be admiring the bikinis. (Now you know why I took him out? Naughty, naughty, naughty Ant!) Anyway I made two more bikinis instead. By the way, the bikinis as well as the sun (from the 2nd card) are from the Lettering Delights Soak Up the Sun SVG set.


What do you think of the bikinis on the hangers? Are they cute or what?! I love putting together the bikinis and making those hangers. Of course, I had to figure out a way to hang those hangers up so I made that stand too. It's amazing what you can do with food picks. :-)



So there you go. 3 cards, 1 sentiment. All cut with the Silhouette SD cutter and Make-the-Cut program. Totally perfect for the summer.

And now onto my favorite part of any blog hop. It's......Blog Candy Time!!!

I'm giving away something super cute today. It's one of my favorite tools and I use it all the time. I'm giving away a.....


SIZZIX TEXTURE BOUTIQUE EMBOSSING MACHINE

  21. Hi Jin. I'm a new follower and I absolutely love all your projects! Your tutorials are easy to follow and thank you for helping me jumpstart my newfound obsession for crafting.

    My favorite part of summer is ... Vacations! While some would put swimming or beaching, I can do that all year round since I live on an island where it feels like summer all year. ((secretly wishing I could be back in WA.)) so vacationing and being able to travel to some place cooler is the best part of my summers.
