{Ellen Hutson + Paper Smooches} July Mix It Up Challenge + Giveaway!


I'm so excited to be part of Ellen Hutson's July Mix It Up Challenge with Paper Smooches! This is a really fun one and I hope you'll play along. You need to mix Essentials by Ellen AND Paper Smooches products together on a card, tag, layout, etc.


Enter as many times as you like! One lucky winner will be drawn at random to receive a $50 certificate to spend at Ellen Hutson. Awesome, right?


From the Essentials by Ellen line, I used the Hello Gorgeous and Twelve Days stamp sets for the two-part sentiment, plus Home & Heart dies to create the little house and tree scene in the background. From Paper Smooches, I used Green Acres stamps and coordinating dies for both the farmers and cow. I used Stitched and Borders 1 dies to create the rolling hills. I kept the front hill panel white because there was so much colour in the foreground that it seemed too much of a distraction to make it green. The main sentiment is on a vellum Word Bubbles die.


See? It's going to be two weeks of fun! You have until July 14th to link up your project in The CLASSroom. I look forward to seeing all your entries!!
