Always an Adventure Fancy Friday Blog Hop

It's Fancy Friday Blog Hop time! I am so excited about this month's theme: Bundles! We have so many wonderful bundles, it was hard for me to pick which one I would choose! 

I played around a little and finally decided on the Always an Adventure Bundle. It's perfect for this time of year- camping, beach trips- summer!
I really love all of the Framelits! Don't they make creating easy? No more FUSSY cutting! I don't have a very steady hand, so I do love when a Framelit will take care of it for me. You can see the bundle includes a cute stamp set that coordinates with the Framelits. 

I decided first to make a S'mores Snack Box Stack. Who doesn't LOVE s'mores? I know my kids sure do! Wouldn't this be a fun party favor or even a snack for a boy scout or girl scout troop? 

I filled three of our new Clear Gift Boxes with Graham Crackers, Hersey bars and marshmallows. I stacked the boxes and wrapped them in some of the Early Espresso patterned Moroccan DSP. 

To create the tag, I cut several layers of mountains and a layer of trees and added them to a  Scallop Topped Tag. I colored the campfire image with Stampin' Write markers and punched it out with a circle (no framelit for that tiny guy!)The bow is made from stands of the Burlap Ribbon pulled apart. Oh, and the sentiment is for the set called Sweet Stack.  

Looking down on it at this angle, you can see how much dimension it has. Lot'f of Dimensional (of course!!)

The next project I made using the Always an Adventure bundle was a card. I decided to watercolor a background to look like a sunset. I senescing behind the mountains... pretty! I used the slat technique and I have a vide on that technique you can watch here.  And don't you love the snow on the mountains? Yep, that's a Framelit too! 

Ahhh, don't ya just love the DIMENSION!! I sure do. I go through Stampin' Dimensionals like nobodies business! LOL!

And here is the inside. I used the sentiment from Over the Rainbow. 

And I couldn't quite let the S'mores go. So, I made a snack mix, using the same ingredients I used above.  This time, I put them in one of our new Gusseted Bags. I first put a piece of DSP in to make it look more festive and to have a flat bottom. Another cute party favor, eh? 


Ok, that's it for me this round. I hope you enjoyed my projects and feel inspired to give this bundle a try. You won't be disappointed!
