Happy Monday to all of you Magnolia friends!  Today you need to break out your sunglasses, swimsuits and floaties (and maybe some Dramamine for the seasickness, lol) so you can swim along with us as we set sail on our Nautical Themed Blog hop!!  The DT has some wonderful and inspiring projects for you today that will surely make you want to break out all those nautical/water Magnolia stamps you might have and get CRAFTY!

And if you submit your own Nautical themed project here by August 1st, then you'll have a chance to win TWO of the NEW Bon Voyage stamps from Magnolia-licious.  Link your projects in the InLinkz area at the end of this post (projects must be nautical/water/pirate themed)!!

July 2010 DT Sketch Project!

Happy July all you Magnolia fans and friends!  Hope you're enjoying your summer and getting lots of time to sit in the sun, relax and get some fun crafting done!  With all those new and wonderful Magnolia stamps how can you not have fun creating with them, right? LOL!

This month the Magnolia-licious DT is resuming the monthly sketch for you all!  I'm (Suzanne, hee hee) the hostess this month and I've challenged the DT (and YOU) to create a fun "Free-Standing Pop-up Card".  These are so easy to make and fun to do--it's easy to make them in different sizes and make the inserts pull out or stay attached as you'd like.  The link to the tutorial is below, but have fun with this tutorial and make it your own by changing it up a bit!  The DT has some fabulous samples for you to be inspired by below as well and they are all SUMMER THEMED!!

(remember you can change the size easily, my project measures 6" inches across)

How to Play:
-Create a "Free-Standing Pop-up" project using a Magnolia stamp(s) and make it Summer Themed!
-Link your project in the "InLinkz box at the very end of this post"--it will leave a small thumbnail of your project so everyone can see :)
