July Linky Party with Crafty Secrets


Hey their Peeps! It’s time again for another fun linky party with Crafty Secrets. It’s summertime! It’s the time of year kick back, relax and enjoy life. Maybe you pile in the car and take a trip to the beach, you might go for a hike in the mountains, go camping under the stars, play in the pool, or sit in the shade and sip lemonade. Your challenge this month is to celebrate summer in a layout, a mini album, a tag, a card or altered art project.

I created a card and had loads of fun mixing and matching the patterned papers and a few vintage images and digital stamps.

  1. Hi Ginny.

    Love your card today. How did you make the blue pearls on the chain? Is it one piece that you buy like that or did you put it together? Very interesting — never seen something like that on a card and I really like it.

    Thanks! Mara

  3. Oh Ginny this is just fabulous! Love all the black & white with the ocean blue! AMAZING detail work and of course that paper clip embellishment is an awesome idea! You never cease to inspire me! Well done!
