In a word: SNEAKS

Hello July, as fast as a lightning bolt. 
It's already reveal and I haven't shared sneaks yet!  For pete's sake!  And I bought everything because I couldn't decide!
I wish July hadn't moved so swiftly.  Maybe it was that combined with family campouts combined with CHA madness, but I have a lot of product left to play with. 

Here's what I came up with:

I was a wee bit obsessed with clouds.  There are chalk label stickers in the main kit from AC, and one of them has a cloud shape that really inspired me this month.

Pink Paislee Mistable trims in the main are DEEEEElish.  And you can see, Bluegrass is the PERFECT mist for this kit.  This sneak uses a lot of the main kit.  The blue/green patterns are the Crate exclusives and I'd definitely recommend more SC paper this month.  This color palette is my favorite. 

This next layout is certain proof as to my obsession with Crate Paper, and how busy I was in July.

When I was working on this layout I didn't like my original design so I pushed things around and cut things up until I was happy.  And then when I put my layouts away, I realized I had SCRAPLIFTED MYSELF.  This layout shares some similarities to my first layout, including the cloud AND the base paper it's mounted on (which is more Crate exclusive paper).  See how much I was inspired by the Crate AND the clouds?  As seen, I could use it on every layout, lol.  That cloud was made with Claudine Hellmuth canvas for fun texture which worked great with the trims, and misted with more Bluegrass.  Again.  haaaa. 

I really liked the patterned papers from Simple Stories that's in add-on 4.  Pretty and a lovely color palette too.  Those chipboard alphas from the main are the same style as new CHA product, just a different color.  LOVE. 

One more share with stamps from add-on 4.  Such cute apples! 

So that's that.

Recommendations are:

bluegrass mist
white zing (did you see it on the second sneak with the blue zig zag?  Because the zig zag stamp works with that Crate paper, so it was fun to zing).
claudine hellmuth sticky backed canvas
and some adhesive.  Because I ran out. 

And that's that.  Have a great day!  Hopefully I'll be able to pop into chat Wednesday night.
