A Taste of Summer – Mixology Paper Crafts

This week we picked summer drinks as a fun theme. What is your favorite summer drink? Sweet Ice Tea, Lemonade or maybe a Margarita?  They all remind us of the sun, the water, the heat and the joy of summer time.  The nice part is we can keep the summer going by keeping our favorite summer drinks around as long as we want.  Today on the blog we are celebrating our favorite drinks with a few fun projects we pulled together from the crew.  The Canvas Corp Collection Mixology is all about those favorite drinks and the fun adult coloring style papers have great art to color, fun sayings and will inspire a few mixology crafty or diy projects…we are sure of it!
CCP2880 Lemonade & Sweet Tea Sayings on White
Let’s start with this fun project by Amber Rasmussen.  The simple combo of burlap, yellow and white is just perfect.  This card is perfect for a party invite, thank you card or maybe make a set for a friend highlighting their fave drink.  The fun sayings top off the card and you get to color them in your way – stamping done for you in essence.  One of Amber’s signatures is her sewing and she adds just a bit here and there so perfectly.  
Here is what she used:

1. Canvas Corp Lemonade & Sweet Ice Tea Sayings on White
2. Canvas Corp Happy Hour Sayings on White 
3. Canvas Corp Yellow & Ivory French Linen Stripe
4. Canvas Corp 12 x 12 Burlap Sheet
5. Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist- Crushed Shells
6.Canvas Corp Waxed Cotton Cord- White

Tools Used:  Scissors and/or Paper trimmer; Paper Adhesive; Sewing Machine and/or Needle & Thread
These Mixology ATC‘s are terrific and fun for exchanging with your artsy friends.  Rikka created them with a fun combo of yellow, red, orange and black.
 Rikka also created these fun invitations for a drink – just color in the drinks and you have the perfect invite paper.  mixology1
