What does June mean to you?  Is it graduation, weddings, dads, or just fun in the sun?  Our blog hop this month is special because all of us are sharing what June means to each of us!  I am sure that you are bound to find some inspiration from us!

If you came here from  Lisa Tyndall’s blog, then you are in the right place!  If you are a regular subscriber of my blog then be sure to follow all of the links to see the great projects we all have to share with you!

June means lots of things to me!  The first of which is getting out of school for the summer!  lol  Next in line would have to be all of the BBQ’s that we host and/or attend!  Some of them are the result of a graduation, to honor the birth of a great friend or most of all to celebrate Father’s Day!

Regardless of your reason for BBQ-ing, I think this double page scrapbook layout would showcase your photos perfectly!

Thank goodness for the fabulous punches that Stampin’ Up! showcases in their catalogs!  If you look beyond the obvious the projects that you can create with them are endless!  Here is a close up of the BBQ grill that I created using the following punches!

  • Ornament Punch – grill lid
  • 1-3/4″ Circle Punch – grill lid/bottom (cut in 1/2)
  • Word Window Punch – legs of grill
  • 1/2″ circle and 3/4″ circle punches for wheels
  • Silver brads to embellish the wheels and provide the hinge on the lid.

In addition to creating the grill with punches, I also used our punches (some retired) to create the grilling tools!

  1. Spatula – word window punch, small tag punch, horizontal slot punch
  2. “Spork” – word window punch, small oval, large oval
  3. Marinating brush – word window punch and a small scrap piece of Crushed Curry cardstock.
Cardstock Colors:
  • Whisper white – 12 x 12
  • Real Red – 2-1/2″ x 12
  • Basic Black – photo mats – 4 x 5-1/4″
  • Alphabet – crushed curry cardstock
