Happy Flip Flop Day Blog Hop!

Before I get started today, I want to thank all of you for your prayers and well wishes with my surgery last week.  Everything went way better than expected, and I am really shocked to be back to crafting already!  I'm so happy to be joining Emma and the My Creative Time team in the  Happy Flip Flop Day Blog Hop!  We are ALL SUPER EXCITED because we are showcasing a set called Sit Back & Relax that will be released next week!  This FUN set includes a total of 19 stamps with coordinating dies!  But, just for hopping today and leaving comments on all of our blogs, Emma decided to have five of us give away this FABULOUS set to five lucky peeps BEFORE it's released!  We will not be saying which five of us are giving it away, so you might want to comment on ALL the blogs so you won't miss out! :)  All five winners will be announced on Emma's blog on Sunday, June 22nd at noon PST!  So you have until Saturday, June 21st at midnight PST to leave your comments.


I love the Sit Back & Relax set!  The flip flops are adorable, and there are such fun sentiments in it!  How cute is this one?  I thought it would be fun to make a bunch of cards that I could send out to my students as thank you notes/happy summer cards.  I kept them really simple, just using the same sentiment on each, but changing up the washi tape and flip flop patterns.


The flip flop dies are really cute, and I had fun using different patterned papers for them.  Emma included some stamps that coordinate with the flower and heart buttons in her Button Dies that look just adorable on top!


I kept the cards for the boys more simple, without the flowers or hearts on top.


These really were easy to mass produce!


Here's a look at the whole set!  Isn't it adorable???


Your next stop is the super sweet and talented Lee-Ann!

Here's the full line-up:

Katie (YOU ARE HERE)

P.S. This set will not be available to purchase until next Friday, June 27th, on Blog Hop Day!
