Hi everyone thanks for joining me on the Love From Lizi summer blog hop. For todays projects i’ve decided to use the tropical summer mega pack which is incredibly jam packed full of summery goodness and given that today is the first day of summer I had to go with a holiday theme.
I took one of the beautiful double sided 8 by 8 papers and cut it into four 4 by 4 inch background pieces.
I then used four different dies to cut a shape from the background paper and from the gold glitter card included in the kit ready for some die cut inlay.
As the patterned papers are double sided I used two of each design.
I used double sided tape to attach the patterned backgrounds to some 4 1/4 square card bases ensuring that the die cut opening was covered with tape to make inlaying the pieces a breeze. I used a green Altenew ink and the caligraphy stamp set from the kit to create custom sentiments.
For a final finish touch I added some gold sunglasses onto the pineapple because well what self respecting pineapple doesn’t have gold sunglasses?! I also drew round two of the sentiments with a white gel pen to help them ‘pop’ against the patterned background.
Thank you so much for joining me on the hop today, be sure to leave a comment below and visit all the blog on the hop leaving comments to be in with a chance of wining a Love From Lizi card kit or £20.00 to spend in store.
The winner will be announced on 26th June 2017

What a great mega pack and wonderful cards you just made with it! It’s just perfect for the current temperatures here in the UK! 😊
It in unusually toasty isn’t it! We are having a dry thunderstorm here. No rain at all but lots of lovely rumbly thunder
Love your idea!
Hi Laura I just came from Ruth’s page on the Love From Lizi summer blog hop. I love how you used the tropical summer mega pack almost like a one page wonder where you used an 8 by 8 paper and cut it into four 4 by 4 inch background pieces and got 4 cards out of it! And don’t you just love the dies in this mega pack??? The caligraphy stamp set from the kit just made your cards!! It’s all about the sentiment and perfect for each of the four cards, love them! Great work… thanks for sharing!!!
Thank you for such a lovely comment so glad you joined us today
These are so much fun! I’m really digging the smaller card bases. It is nice to change things up a bit and I love the feathered looking pattern paper. That is one of my favs from the pack!
Thanks Alicia! I was drawn to that paper instantly
What an efficient way to use paper 🙂 Love that tip. Summer card is my favorite
Thank you, imagine if I did this with every sheet! I’d have more cards than I would know what to do with 😋
How very creative, I like them
Yay! Thank you
Love the colors in this pack and the way you used the stamp set!
Thanks Peggy I love alphabet stamps and this one having the upper and lower case is so useful!
I love little square cards! Sadly, it costs more to post square envelopes in the US (???) so I have to use rectangle envelopes. Not the same, but they still work!!
Well I did not know that, how interesting!
I am inspired to try the inlay technique. Beautiful cards.
So glad you are feeling inspired
Awesome cards. Loved all of them 😊
Such beautiful cards. I love the colors
I love all of them! I can’t choose one it’s simplely to hard lol thanks for sharing ❤️
Love the colors of this mega pack and how you used the feathered background paper. Always look forward to your card creations.
These cards are great, the feather paper looks really cool the way you die cut it. Great job…
Love the paper and cards. The “chilled” is my favorite with the surfboard. Great job!
Love the packs and all your great cards! Thanks for the inspiration. 🤓
Your cards are great. Love this mega pack.
Aren’t these fabulous?? That patterned paper is amazingly versatile and I love the inlay die cutting with some seriously blingy paper. No wonder the pineapple needed sunglasses…. thank you so much for having me on the hop! Xx
Love this gorgeous project!
Thank you Heidi!
