Sizzle Into Summer: Use Your Stuff Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Use Your Stuff "Sizzle into Summer" blog hop! I don't know about you but I love summer! Lemonade stands and beach time....camping and s'mores....lazy days and ice cream. I love it all!  

his week, the design team at Use Your Stuff is celebrating summer with our very own collection of amazing projects to inspire you to create some fun summer projects. Make sure to follow the links below to check out the projects and posts for each of the design team members. Many of them have prizes and giveaways that you can enter as well. 

My thought process for this week was to create a layout that was super bright, fun, and just screams summer! You can see what I created below. I included lots of layers and fun embellishments from a few different summer collections to create this look.

For my blog, I am giving away a summer prize pack full of goodies to help you create! Entering is easy....just leave a comment below telling me your favorite summer adventure. It's that simple! I will choose a winner on Sunday, June 19th. If you like this layout and want to see more of my work, please visit me on Instagram (@redefinedkreative) and on my You Tube channel where I have some really fun process videos posted. 

The hop contest is going to run from Monday June 13 until Saturday June 18th, so you have a whole week to hop and play along with us. You also have a chance to win a prize from the main UYS blog simply by linking up your own fun summer project! We will draw a random winner over there on Sunday June 19th. We hope you enjoy the fun summer scrappy treats we have for you this week!

    My fav. summer adventure is going to our cabin as much as possible. We have no power there and I LOVE colouring and crafting in the quiet woods beside a lovely river! Not much of an adventure but I truly LOVE it!

  4. Lovely children and awesome layout.
    Hugs, Maja

  5. LOL, love your LO! Love when my kids were that small to fit into those tubes! My favorite summer activity is taking my kids to visit my aunt and grandma (their great aunt and great grandma) and of course there are those same tubes. As teenagers they still try to fit into them when we go the lake! Always a laugh and fun time!

  9. My favorite summer adventure doesn't even require me to leave the county! A couple of years ago, a homemade ice cream place opened up a few miles from us, and we just love it. We only go a couple of times a summer, so it's very special. There is nothing better than homemade ice cream!

  10. It is really gorgeous. I love the bright colors on the photo.
