Summer Stamping & Coloring


Hi readers! Happy Tuesday! I’m excited to welcome back our special bi-monthly guest, Yana Smakula, with this sunny and happy inspiration that’s perfect as we’re gearing up for the Summer months! She combined stamps from Cuddly Critter Accessories, Pool Play, My Sunshine, and Flip Flop Season to create this really fun design! Love the striped color on the fold? That’s one of my favorite Simon Says Stamp Exclusive colors, Scuba! Read on and enjoy!
