Moxxie July Blog Hop!

Hi Everyone,

Guess what day is today?  Yes, that is correct.  It is the first Friday of the month and that means it is Moxxie Blog Hop time.  This month we are going to shake things up just a bit! Design Team Member Mary Pat Siehl has created another sketch for you and each Muse will show you their take on the sketch.  The Muses will be using all different Moxxie collections.  It is going to be so fun to see what collections the Muses are using and to see how each one interprets the sketch.

So let's get us started with the sketch!  This sketch is very fun and lends itself to many different interpretations.

Isn't this sketch so versatile?  Want to see what I created using it?


My inspiration came from the season and last years fourth of July photos.  I thought it would be fun to play with the patterns and motion in this collection and it was so much fun!


I took my favorite pictures and arranged them in a collage.  I used the swirled pattern paper and created a bit of movement by fussy cutting and piecing with some stitching as an extension of the photo matting.


A bit of confetti star punch and wood veneer stars, and some sequins finished the look.  I hope you had a wonderful fourth of July and thanks for stopping on over today!

So let's get hopping.  Here are the Moxxie links:
