June Team wrap up!

June's blog promotion saw a week of father's day and grad posts by WabisabiBrooklyn, KimmChi, LuxSugar and YoursTrulyxoxo, with stories of crafty dad's and crafty gifts for dad. The rest of the month, we focused on crafting on the go and travel inspired crafting from KimmChi, WaiSze, WabisabiBrooklyn, Collective Elements, Luckx4 and KartDesign. Also with a great Gocco tutorial from FadingFlowers.
