How Neat is that Blog Hop - July 30 - 31

Welcome to:

Where all the projects in some sort of way will be interactive.  You will see things that popup, pull, slide, wobble and even hide.  If you are arriving from Brynn's blog, you are on the right track.  If you just stumbled upon my blog, please feel free to join us for this fantastic hop by starting back at Monica's blog!
Here is the full lineup in case you get lost or miss someone. 

There is an awesome list of ladies who will be sharing some fabulous projects so be sure to leave comments for each crafty lady and become a follower of Monica's blog in order to be eligible for the SWEET CANDY.  Which you have to come back to see.  Bring a friend and get an extra chance at the prize. 

Hopefully you will come away with some new crafty ideas on how to make your cards, layouts or minis more interactive.  The possibilities are endless.... Thanks for hopping with us.

My project for the hop is an interactive card using an action wobble.

What is an action wobble you ask?

Well .. It's basically a spring that has two pieces of peel n' stick bases on each side to adhere to your project.  The spring allows for movement of the item you position it to.

I've chosen the "Rock on Boys Collection" pattern to use from Little Scraps of Heaven designs to great this really cute card.  The 'rocker' boy holds a guitar which has movement due to the spring I attached.

Here is a picture of the front of the card

In this picture you can see how the guitar 'pops' out from the card.  This is due to the fact that it is adhered with the action wobble in place

Here is a closer view.  The action wobble is actually 'going' right now... you can see how the hands are a bit out of line.

A top view of the card.  You can see the dimension that the wobble adds.

1 - SEI patterned Cardstock
3 - Papertrey Ink "Just the ticket" stamp set

Thanks so much for joining us today. To be eligible to win the Grand Prize Giveaway you MUST visit each blog and leave a comment.

Here are my projects for the Splash of Summer hop:

The first project is a tag.  It showcases one of the monkeys from the Fun in the Sun Monkey Pattern kit from Little Scraps of Heaven
.  A cute little tag that can be added to a card, or a scrapbook page.

My second project is a set of paper piecings.
This set is PERFECT for celebrating that day outside in the hot sun.
For this set, I used paper piecings from the Pooltime Fun pattern set from Little Scraps of Heaven

My third project is a border that will fit a 12x12 scrapbook page.  It has a pull out tag with a cute dangling charm.  For this layout I used the "You are My Sunshine" pattern over at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.

My last project is my BIG one.

I've been wanting to do a nautical themed layout for some time now and I was thinking about this hop I came to the realization that what goes better with sun than the sea and surf.  I chose to use the Under the Sea Collection from Little Scraps of Heaven to make this three dimensional page.  At this point I may do one of two things.  1 - Simply frame it in a 12x12 shadowbox frame and hang in my boys bathroom, or possibly turn it into a two page layout where the pictures are displayed on the right hand page.  Still not sure yet, but in either case I am REALLY happy with how this turned out and am inspired to do more nautical projects too!

I do happen to have some blog candy for you ... To enter to win the candy, all you need to do is the following:
  1. Follow this blog if you are not already a follower and leave a comment.
  2. Follow my FaceBook Fan page at Dawn's Designs that Delight.

Celebrate the 4th

Happy Independence Day America!

This week I have been working on a few projects that celebrate our freedom, and I would like to share them with all of you.

For my first project, I created a cute whimsical 4th of July Celebration Card.
I used Little Scraps of Heaven Designs patterns which can be found HERE.

The card type that I used is called a "Joy Fold" card, and I located a tutorial that you can use HERE.  The dimensions on my card are a bit different than this one, but it is exactly the same idea, and a FANTASTIC tutorial.  If you haven't seen all that has to offer you should definitely check it out.  Tons of ideas, inspiration and tutorials!

My next project is a two page layout that would be just perfect to showcase your Celebrations that you are sure to be having this upcoming weekend.

This was last weeks Design Team challenge project over at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs.
The challenge was to create something (anything creative) that Celebrates the 4th of July.  The one other requirement was to use stars somewhere.  I think I got the starts covered :)

I used the 4th of July collection that is available HERE
Lots of great pieces in this collection that I did not even get a chance to use on this layout.

Last but not least, I have one final layout to share.
Once again, this is for a Deisgn Team Challenge project that was due today.
The challenge was to create something utilizing a military theme and to use distressing in the project.

I chose to make a one page layout utilizing the new release "Military Kids" Collection ... you can find that HERE

For my distressing I used tea stain for the title, mat sets, and stars. I also wet the stars and crinkled them to get them more of a vintage feel to go along with the paper I chose. 

I hope you enjoyed my project and will consider doing a military themed item as well.

Finally, I wanted to let you know that there is a sale going on right now at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs for the 4th of July!  It's really a fantastic one and you can get all of the patterns that I used above .. and more.
