Chistmas in July Wrap Up

Well this wraps up a Christmas in July.  It was a struggle getting into the Christmas spirit when it's 90 degrees outside and it's dark until 9:30, but I finished the week up strong.

Here are two more cards:


I used a stamp set from The Stamps of Life.  I did some masking and there you go.  I used a Jelly Roll pen to put a little sparkle on the card.

I entered this card in the challenge at Beccy's Place.  This card has been entered in the challenge at Scraps of Life.


I used the fuse tool from We R Memory Keepers to create this cute shaker card.  I used a stamp set from the Stamps of Life.  I used two oval dies in order to create the opening for the shaker card.  You can see the tools I used below.

I entered this card into the challenge at A Smile 4 Kids Challenge.  This card has been entered in the challenge Scraps of Life.


I've had lots of fun this week making Christmas cards.  I actually started singing Christmas tunes.  It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas......  But back to summer now.

Thank you for stopping by the blog.  Have a great day and tune in tomorrow for some more crafty fun.

Have a great day and be inspired.

  8. You've created two fabulous Christmas cards April, they are wonderful! I love the lovely big baubles with the swirls on them, and that snowman is adorable... what a great idea to make him into a shaker card! We're celebrating Christmas in July here too, and for me, it's hard to get into the spirit when it's cold. I'm used to Christmas in summertime!
    Cheers,
