Summer Crush Blog Hop

Welcome to the Summer Crush Blog Hop!

If you've arrived from Jen Rubio's blog, you're on the right track.  If you get lost along the way you can find a complete list of hoppers here.

This month, Close to My Heart is featuring their line of My Crush books.  When you buy the book and the corresponding Assortment, you can get the coordinating stamp set for FREE!

What can you do with these books?  They are great for portable memory keeping, especially for tweens and teens.

One of the hottest trends in paper crafting right now is PLANNERS.  I'm in the process of converting my book into a planner where I can not only organize my life, but keep my memories in there as I go. I have it with me all the time, so why not just put things in it as I get them?

Supplies used:
Z2000 My Crush In the Pink Book
Z2042 My Crush In the Pink Assortment
B1465 Glitter Glam
Z2043 My Crush In the Pink Sticky Tabs
Z2644 Pixie Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
Z1906 CTMH Cricut Artbooking Collection

I also created this adorable card to show you what you can do with your free stamp set outside of your My Crush book:

Next up on the hop is Michelle Rowley.  Be sure to check out her fabulous creation!
