I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Cardz TV Blog Hop
Take the journey with the DT from Cardz TV and hop along the blog looking for inspiration. This is an anything goes blog hop. I'm offering blog candy for anyone who:
1. Follows my blog.
2. Leaves a note in my blog that you are a new follower.
3. Random winner receives: a small Spellbinder die cut template!!!
4. Closes when the blog hop closes.
For my project, I thought about the HOT August we are having and the brutally hot weather we just had on vacation. You do not want to go to Universal Studios in 95 degree weather with no shade. Yikes. On the other hand, it was perfect weather for the water park.
I started with a fold card, which I learned from Mary at Cardz TV. Check out her blog for tutorials on new and interesting folded cards. Here is a view from the top:
The folds of the card make the card stand and pop the middle section out. Some details about this card, I wanted to use this fun whale because I want to send this card to my nephews. I think they will get a kick out of a purple whale. The sun is made of chipboard and is from my stash - it is seriously about 2 years old. All of the die cuts are from Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons. The stamp is from Cardz TV's NEW stamp set: Summer Fun.
