Our Daily Bread designs June Release Blog Hop!

SW blk

Oh my,
I thought last month was awesome…
wait till you see this month’s release!

If you came here from Julie’s blog, and her gorgeous card, you’re in the right spot, no worries though if you just landed here!  You can always go back to the Our Daily Bread designs Blog for the entire line up! We have a special guest today too… none other than the designer of one of the new sets, Serve The Lord, Dina!!

The Hop will run from 8am EDT June 1 until 8pm EDT. June 2. The winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on June 3.

Prizes for this hop will be Three Free Sets of Choice, and one Grand Prize of the Bread Basket Bundle!

Here is what you need to do to be entered in the drawing:

Leave comments for each designer on each blog.
Return to the ODBD Blog and leave a comment, telling us you completed the hop and noting any blogs you were unable to comment on.
Answer the question on the ODBD blog

Now, here’s my project.

When I saw this release, so much of it screamed one of our DT members, Randi, to me! She’s such a motivator, cheerleader and ODBD ambassador at shows!  I had this idea of something really special this time around, so I started searching the resources on Splitcoast and found this Scrapbook Wallet… perfect! I used every single set and single from this release.Surprised smile

SW Front

Here is the entire “wallet” folded up and closed. The paper tole flower is Dahlia, from the Garden Collection, stamped/embossed  3 times on regular cardstock and watercolored with Ranger Adirondack reinkers. I cut around the petals, cutting into some of them for a more realistic look, then spritzed with water, crumpled tightly into a ball and carefully un-crumpled. These I let air dry then adhered together with Zip Dry glue, added Flower Soft to the center and built my floral spray.

I used Spellbinders Foliage and Martha Stewart’s Branch punch on Prism cardstock. The entire front flap was given a generous amount of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist. All the pages are Prism cardstock with Basic Grey Sweet Threads.

SW flower clsup

SW half

To secure the top and bottom flaps, I used sticky hook/loop squares.

As it opens and starts to unfold… Five pages to open, each side has a layout, and one final layout in the middle… that’s 11 different pages!! Whew! But really, once I got the basics of the wallet itself, it went together pretty fast. (HINT.. make a mock one first to see where the pages go, then when you do the REAL thing, stamp and embellish BEFORE putting it together! I think it’d be much easier!)

SW BLK 1

Dahlia, Kind Hearts, Serve The Lord, Time, Crocheted Background and matching dies… awesome stamps! You should be able to right click on the collage or any other picture and bring it up in another window for better viewing.

SW pg2circle

Embossed and colored with Prismacolor pencils blended with baby oil.

SW flap

And more Glimmer Mist 

SW BLK 2

SW pg10 circle

SW pg10 sentiment

Spellbinders used: ODBD Elegant Ovals, Labels 16/18, Lacy Ovals, Fleur de Lis Squares/Motifs/Rectangles, Sprightly Spockets, Fancy Tags II/III, Foliage…all cut on my Grand Calibur 

Now it’s time to hop over to
Grace’s blog 
and be prepared to drool!
She has an awesome project for you!!

Thanks for stopping!
