More Christmas in July!

Hi there, thanks for stopping by! Here a few Christmas gift tags I made for the Lasting Impressions blog. It was hard to get in the Christmas spirit when the heat index is pushing 110 but I enjoyed staying indoors and crafting to make these tags! Hope you have a great weekend! I'm heading to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in Valley Forge, PA for a long weekend. I am looking forward to getting away!

Flower Pocket Card

Hi, Hope you are having a great week! I made this card for a friend. I was sending her a few little goodies so I wanted to include a pocket to hold everything. I know there are tutorials out there for making this kind of card but I just kind of winged it... and wasted a lot of paper in the meantime. Don't you just hate that!!? I love how the card turned out though, and the picture does not do it justice. The paper is by Lasting Impressions (although I think it may be retired), it has repeating gardening words on it and the flower template is by Lasting Impressions as well. Have a great weekend!

Christmas in July

Hello, Thanks for stopping by! Here are a couple cards I made when I was thinking about Christmas in July. It's never too early to start making your Christmas cards! These two cards were fairly simple to make, I used Lasting Impressions templates and their line of distressed papers. They are one of my favorite lines of paper, and they all coordinate so well together.
Hope you had a great weekend, I have lots more Christmas in July projects to show you later this week!

Red, White & Blue Challenge Card

Hello, Happy Independence Day! I made this card for the Woodware USA challenge. I used Woodware USA stamps for the sentiment and the mouse. I colored the mouse with Copic markers. The red, white & blue paper is from Hobby Lobby. The stripes were going diagonal on the paper and I cut it so they would be horizontal (straight), I just thought it looked better that way. Hope you have a great weekend!
