Paper Trail June Blog Hop

Welcome to the Paper Trails blog hop. If you came here from Mary's blog you are on the right track.  This month we are working with Footloose papers. They really are so fun and I love the colors. Very beachy and springy. I did several layouts at the Leadershare in NJ that I attended so I cannot take credit for these layout ideas. I did not totally complete them yet either. The originals had titles on them and of course, I have not added pics yet.  I will add more when I decide how to use these layouts.

Then I created a project of my own :) I found the original idea for this card pouch on Splitcoaststampers. I adjusted it for standard cards. I only created one of the cards so far to fill it but it will hold 4 cards and 4 envelopes. It's a cute, quick gift idea.  I used some binder clips to hold this one closed but you could also use a punch to put a handle near the top and tie it closed with a ribbon. See example of that in the last picture. The first pic is the outside of the pouch, the second is an inside view and the 3rd is the card.

That's it for this month. Thanks for looking. Hop on to 


  1. Where to start? I love the layouts and how they show how different the paper looks depending on what you pair it with. So cool!

    Your card holder is A-DOR-A-BLE! I'll probably be lifting that one!

  2. Wonderful, Lynn! Love the layouts!!! So clean and fresh for summer. Wonderful seahorse you created!!!

  3. Beautiful work! I really like all of these projects.
