***********************************************

Hello! Today I am featuring 5 cards from the Scrapping for Less May card kit.  Now if you follow me on YouTube and/or Instagram, you know I just had carpal tunnel release surgery on my right hand.  When I agreed to work with the Scrapping for Less kit at the beginning of this year, I didn’t know it would be at the same time of my surgery.  That being said instead of making my usual 10 cards, I had to settle for 5, and I made the 5 cards with one hand!  This was challenging and interesting to say the least, especially since I am right handed.  So, please forgive any crooked cut lines as that is what I had the most trouble with.  Otherwise I kept my cards fairly simple and really enjoyed working with the kit.

I do have an unboxing video posted HERE (will open in new window) if you want to check out what comes in the kit.  I will have my 5 cards 1 kit video posted soon (if not already by the time you read this) to my YouTube channel, so make sure you head on over there and subscribe so you don’t miss that video and future videos.

Below you will find pictures of the cards I created. Thank you to Scrapping for Less for letting me work with your kit this month.  It was a lot of fun and I just love the theme!  Hope you all enjoy my cards!

Don’t forget to participate in the blog hop.

Love From Lizi Summer Blog Hop

DSCN4895

Hey guys!  Welcome to the Love From Lizi summer blog hop.  The theme was fittingly summer, so I finally had a chance to pull out the beautiful Tropical Summer Mega Pack, which you can find HERE!

Here is my first card:
DSCN4896

For this card I used the patterned paper that comes in the mega pack and fussy cut out the flamingo and floral images.  I used card stock from my stash to create my card base and my sentiment piece.

If you take a closer look you can see some gold glitter paper peeking out from the card panel and the sentiment.  I topped the card off with a sentiment from my stash and Sugared Almond Nuvo Drops.

I love this mega pack so much that I had to make a second card!

DSCN4899

The mega pack comes with a great selection of dies, so I had to use the pineapple, sunglasses, and cocktail drink.  Once I die cut the images, I used Distress Ink to add some color.  For the pineapples I used Pine Needles, Twisted Citron for the top and Wild Honey with a little Rusty Hinge for the bottom.  The ink I used for the cocktail is Abandoned Coral, Twisted Citron, and a little Wild Honey.  For the base of the drink I used Stormy Sky.

The patterned and the glitter paper are both from the mega pack.  I used a HELLO die from my stash to create my sentiment.  It seemed to get lost in the pattern paper, so I decided to use some black card stock to create a “shadow.”  I of course had to add more sparkle and topped my cocktail and pineapple tops with some Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Overlay Pen.

That sums up my creations for the blog hop.  

Details are below on what you need to do to enter to win £20.00(GBP) to spend in the Love From Lizi store.

  • Comment on each blog hop
  • Comments must be received by 6/25
  • Winner will be announced 6/26 on the Love From Lizi blog
