August 2015 Card Kit Reveal!!


Hello everyone, it’s the 14th of the month and that means it’s time to reveal our August card kit Summer Sunshine!

I love this kit… hands down my favorite so far! It’s packed full of fun goodies including the Simon Says Stamp clear set “Flip Flop Season”, and a cute little “Sunshine” die, and a special mix of confetti called Fairy Tale. Also in this kit is a Simon Says Stamp storage pocket that you can store your stamps in or use like I did on my card below. The pattern papers are from Simple Stories their Summer Vibes collection with 12 6×6 sheets, along with some beautiful My Mind’s Eye Shimmer papers in Carrot Stick, Tropical Bay and Imperial Red. You’ll also get Simon Says Stamp cardstocks and a pack of foam adhesive from Best Creations. As if that isn’t enough, you also get a pack of October Afternoon Pillow Puff stickers and a Sakura Jelly Roll pen! What a deal!!

I decided to use my storage pocket to create a fun panel on my card that hold cut papers, my message and some confetti with a die cut.


I had a blast creating my pocket shaker panel using my Fuse tool. The Simon Says Stamp sleeves are PERFECT for this and it’s super easy!


I’ve shot a video of the walkthrough and how this card came together including using the Fuse tool. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel.

The Flip Flop Season stamp set and Sunshine die are also available for individual purchase in our store.

  1. Great kit! I love the summer stamps with the cute flip flops and sunny greetings! And the paper choices are fantastic! I always love any paper that look like wood and these remind me of what a beach-house might be made of or a boardwalk. :)

  2. FABULOUS kit, LOVE the cardstock colours!!!
    LOVE Shari’s card too – pocket shakers look like so much fun :)

  3. Can’t wait to see what inspiration this card kit inspires this month – the colors are just perfect for July :)

  4. Oh, this kit is GORGEOUS! I love summer cards, I feel they bring us closer to the sea and sun(!), and this kit has all that is needed! Oh, I wish I could have this one…..

  5. …And Shari’s card is amazing! I love the way she used the plastic pocket on the card to include all these summer elements, so unique and so beautiful! Thank you dear Shari for the kit introduction and for the inspiration!

  6. Stunning card using the striking contents of this SSS kit. Yet another home run with this selection. That Fuse tool is quite impressive for pocket cards. I am curious about additional uses. Thanks for the entertaining video while battling some insomnia. Cheers!

  7. Absolutely adorable! The see through pocket card is so summery looking. Reminds me of those jelly sandals for kids. I’m not sure they still make them.

  8. I love your card. What a creative idea making multiple fused pockets as the focal of the card and it’s just so fun and festive. TFS Looking forward to my kit.

  9. Love this shaker pocket card. Summer fun in a kit! What a great idea. I’m wondering….do I need the Fuse Tool???? :)

  10. Love the kit, but I have a question:
    Is the sunshine die the same one that is in the “Sun and Sunshine Craft Die” set? Please say no, because I all ready have that die!!

    1. I think it is, too. If SSS could weigh in, here, that would be great! I’m hemming and hawing, too. I’ll probably still get it because I think the stamp set is cute and everything else adds to my staples, even if not a must-have.

      By the way, Simon, if it helps you clear it up for us, the Sun & Sunshine set we’re talking about with the dies is SSSD111358. Thanks!

    2. Hi Kristen and Sallee, I just checked the dies and yes it is the same. It would be a great gift to a friend!

      Thanks for asking.

      1. Thanks, Shari! That’s what I’m thinking … I’ll gather my dupes and extras I’ve accumulated and either gift or swap with another crafty pal.

  11. This is such a cool way to use the Fuse tool! I’m trying to resist getting it, but this is making it really hard! =D

  12. Fabulous new card kit!! Can’t wait to start playing with all the bright summer colors and inspiration. Shari’s card is amazing! This Fuse tool is going on my wish list–such an easy way to make fun shaker cards!
