SWAA Calypso Blog Hop

Welcome to June's Stampers with an Attitude Blog Hop.    Who are the Stampers with an Attitude?  It is the Close to My Heart team lead by my fabulous upline, Kimberly Moss. This month I am following  {Angie Wilson.}  

This month we are the Calypso Paper Pack or Beach artwork.  Our blog hop is a circular hop.  You just click on the link to the next blog at the bottom of this post and go visit the next blog.  If you get lost, I have all of the participating blogs listed at the bottom of my post.  Hope you enjoy seeing what our team has made for you.

I chose to use the Calypso Paper Pack.  This paper pack has 12 different patterned papers to work with and they are all color coordinated.  I love Close to My Heart's new type of paper packs.  They only contain patterned paper, but with such a wonderful selection of small and large prints, I find that I am easily matching patterns with patterns.  Love it!

I started off with the super cute Picture My Life that comes in this paper pack.  In each paper pack, you get two sheets of Picture My Life cards.  I like to use them as embellishments for my scrapbooking pages and bases for my cards.  They make crafting so easy!

I had decided to make an oddball flamingo.  I love creative and quirky and this card says it all.

Here is my card:

All of the papers used are from Calypso and I was so excited that I got to use the Flamingo stamp and Thin Cuts for the first time.

I want to thank you for visiting my blog.  The next very talented artist for you to visit on our blog hop is {Wendy Taylor}.
