Happy Summer!  I'm so glad you stopped by for this month's blog hop.  This month we are working with one of my all-time favorite collections from Club Scrap - National Parks!   There are so many goodies this in this kit, it was hard to choose what to showcase this month.

If you traveled here from Cathy's blog, then you are following the hop!  If you've lost your way or just want to see all the links in one place, head over to the Club Scrap blog to see a list of all the talented bloggers participating today.

When I opened by pizza box this month, the first thing I was drawn to was the piece of canvas cloth that was included with our kits - I knew I wanted that to be a unique focus of a card, so I grabbed some spray mists and started to get crafty!

I first stamped the map images from the Art Nouveau stamp set on a strip of canvas to give some additional texture.  I then used the camper image from the Lite stencil and some red spray mist to add the camper image to the canvas - I love how the canvas soaks in the mist for such a bright and bold image!

I made sure to add some distressing to this outdoorsy card - by peeling some of the threads from the canvas, I was able to make a frayed edge, but this should not fray any further after it's been adhered to the card.  I also used an embellishment from the cutaparts and distressed the edges before using it as my card's sentiment.

Thank you so much for stopping by this month!  Head on over to Deb's blog to see what she has been working on.  Stop back in next month when we're working with the Cantina collection!
