Simple Pleasures VIP Blog Hop!

Hey everyone, and welcome to July's VIP Product Tour!! This month's collection is so ADORABLE!! I am in LOVE with these little cuties!!

If you aren't familiar with the VIP Package it is a LIMITED QUANTITY product (NOT a one-day product - it will be available until it sells out), that allows you the opportunity to purchase new, unreleased sets TWO weeks early. This month's package is: 

Pure Innocence Simple Pleasures VIP Collection $33.95
Pure Innocence Picture Perfect stamp set
Pure Innocence Piggy Bank stamp set
Simple Pleasures Sentiments mini (VIP exclusive stamp set - will never be offered for sale or be available again $9 value, FREE)
Lead the Way Die-namics

For my cards tonight, I used both the Pure Innocence Girls being released, Picture Perfect and Piggy Bank!!

For my first card I used the Piggy Bank set paired with Miss Caroline Dolled Up paper. I used Gold Coin, Berrylicious(MFT), and Cotton Candy card stock. My ribbon is Cotton Candy Grosgrain, and I also used a Creative Express Spiral Clip, and some brads from Michael's. I used a bunch of Die-namics on this card: the Crown Border Die-namics for my border, the Flower and Leaf Trio Die-namics for my flowers, the Fishtail Banner Stax Die-namics for my flags, the Lead the Way Die-namics from the kit for my arrow, and the Sentiment Strips Die-namics for my sentiment.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies and another sentiment from the mini set included with the kit!

For my second card, I used the Picture Perfect set, paired with some MME Miss Caroline Howdy Doody paper. My card stock is Fossil(MFT), Banana Split(Bazzill), and Pink Lemonade(MFT). I paired it with Pink Lemonade Grosgrain, a Creative Express spiral clip, and some brads from Michael's. I stamped my sentiment on the new Lead the Way Die-namics included in the kit! My heart is from the Heart Die-namics.

For the inside, I used the same supplies.

 Here are the Die-namics I have used: 

Well, that is it for me for now!! Be sure to check out Kim's Blog for a full list of designers participating in today's post!!

July Key Ingredients-You're Beautiful!

This month's Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions is FULL of GORGEOUS paper, embellishments, and FUN! It features the Cosmo Cricket Tea For Two paper collection. 

For my card, I used the Moka Morgana set, I stamped her on Buttercream cardstock, and then colored her with my Copics. She was cut out with the Oval Stax Die-namics, and then layered with a green panel using the Open Scalloped Oval Die-namics from MFT. My ribbon and buttons came from the July Key Ingredients kit.
