By the Dock Summer

By the Dock Summer

Some families camped. Some families visited Disneyland. Other families traveled to South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore during summer vacation. Our family lived at the lake in Minnesota. A weekend stretched to a week, which became a month, and turned into spending three glorious months enjoying the lake life. We loved water skiing, floating on air mattresses, and seeing brilliant sunsets. (We try to forget battling those giant mosquitoes at night!)

Each morning, my sisters and I awoke and immediately dressed in our swimsuits. We spent the entire day on the dock, listening to music and reading what seemed like hundreds of books.

Stampin’ Up!’s By the Dock stamp set and coordinating dies bring back memories of those long, lazy days soaking up the sun and enjoying the water. I tried to recreate that scene with rubber stamps, ink, paper, and accessories.

Products I Used

I pulled together a few current Stampin’ Up! products to create this scene that takes me back to those idyllic Minnesota summers:

  • By the Dock stamp set
  • Dockside Dies
  • Under My Umbrella stamp set
  • Stitched Nested Labels
  • Layering Circles Dies
  • Stitched Shapes Dies
  • Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder
  • Shimmery White card stock water colored with Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight

What summer memories do you have? Share them in the comments. I’d love to hear.

Again, hop along to all of the blogs and comment on them all.


Congratulations to last month’s winner: Nancy Cox.
