DHD Blog Hop- June House Party and Summer Bucket List

Hello everyone and welcome back to Sassy Sanctuary!

It's June and that means it time for another Design House Digital house party and blog hop!  This month the theme is "whimsy" and you'll find that this collection is super cute, super bright, and perfect for summer!!


 You can check out and download the kits HERE
 The house party kits will be on sale, 30% off, through June 5th.

Here are a couple of the layouts I created using the house party kits.

In this first one I used a couple pictures of my kiddos from last summer enjoying some snow-cones.   We actually avoid food coloring around here so snow-cones are a rare treat for my kids, but they LOVE them!  I think the happy kit colors compliment my happy kids really well!


We recently celebrated the first birthday of my cute little niece Kendal, so I had to make a page for her with these kits too!  The fun colors worked really well with her birthday celebration pictures!  And I love how this layout turned out!


But you know me!  I just LOVE printables and hybrid projects so I had to make a printable too!

The whimsy kits really had me thinking about summer and with school just getting out it was the perfect time to create our Summer Bucket List!  If you are anything like me, you always have a ton of things you want to do while the kids are home, but half of them never get done because you just don't think about it.  This way when the kids say "I'm bored!" you can consult the list and find something to do!

So I made my print, put it in a cheap $5 frame from Micheal's, hot glued magnets to the back, and stuck it to the fridge.  By putting it in a frame I have an instant dry erase board.  Then we brainstormed as a family what we wanted to do this summer and wrote out our list on the glass with a dry erase marker.  We can cross them off as we get them done, and if we finish our list we can erase it and make a new one!




And the best part is that my kids are SO excited about it!  They keep asking me when we are going to go do all these fun things. So cute!

So if you'd like to make a summer bucket list of your own, here is the print!


PERSONAL USE ONLY


Just save the image (click to get the full image and not the thumbnail, right click, and then hit "save") and print it as an 8x10.  You can add it to a frame to make it dry erase like I did, or you can just write on it and call it good.  Either way, you're sure to have a super fun summer if you take the time to make a game plan!
 
I hope you'll enjoy this month's house party kits and create some fun scrapbook layouts and enjoy your summer bucket list.  Once again, HERE is where you can find the kits to play along with us!

If you are new to digital scrapbooking and would like to give it a try, I use and LOVE the software Scrapbook Max.  You can download a free trial and see what you think.  Its super easy to use and I know you will love it!  DHD also has a newbie page in the works.  It is chuck full of all the information and tutorials you need to get started.  So watch for that as its coming SOON! But I have to warn you, once you go ditgital, you'll never go back!!! 

And that's it!  You made it to the end of the hop!  I sure hope you enjoyed it and are inspired to digi-create!  If you found your way here first, hop on over to DHD to go to the start of the hop so you don't miss a thing.
