Cheery Lynn Let's Go Retro New Release Blog Hop!

Hi crafty friends! Cheery Lynn Designs has a brand new release which means it's time for a Blog Hop! There are so many awesome projects in this hop, so make sure to click the links below to see them all. If you arrived from Debbie's blog you are on the right track. If not, you can return to the Cheery Lynn blog HERE to start from the beginning. 

I probably love all new dies.  But these are so different and fun to play with.  They are perfect for making any project extra special.  The great thing about them is that they really are completely unique to my collection.  The Picture Perfect camera in these colors looked like a new instant cameras my daughter and her tween friends all either have or want.  The sentiment was perfect on a girl card and would be great for graduations too.  My daughter is stepping up into middle school this year and I think she inspired this card.  She even asked if we could frame it for her room.

I glued the aqua camera to a piece of black cardstock and cut around it.  This way the black elements are actually recessed.  The camera and photo were then adhered with foam adhesive for dimension.

I sponged color around the sentiment using the square die as a stencil.  The smaller hearts were cut out of glitter paper.  Sparkle was colored with a marker and glitter glue was added on top.  Last, I glued a rhinestone to the top of the letter I.  You can never have too much shimmer on a project!

Jenny, your card is so pretty. I love your colors and the old Poloroid camera.

Nice use of the polaroid!

I instantly got an idea to have a picture of the recipient coming out of the camera! Wouldn't that be fun and really personal.

It definitely looks like a mom encouraging her daughter and it should be well framed so she can pass it down -- sparkle is timeless.
