Welcome to day two of Christmas in July.
You should have come from Kim's blog, if not start with Theresa!
We just couldn't stop playing with the holiday theme,
so we've got a second day filled with great ideas that you can start creating now for Christmas.
Along the way today, you'll find card and gift ideas, a scrapbook layout page or two
and even a couple great decorating ideas.
We hope this hop gets you in the holiday spirit a little early this year.
We'd like to say a HUGE THANKS to our sponsor today.
Theresa is giving away a $20 Stampin' Up Gift Certificate to one lucky winner AND
take 10% off any order placed through her (not available on website) by July 30th.
Email her at scrapsbygracie AT gmail.com with your order.
All you have to do to win this fabulous prize is comment on each of the blogs.
That's it! It really is easy.
Of course, we would love it if you became a follower too.
Comment buttons can be found at the bottom of the post (on most of the blogs).
Now on with the hop!
I pulled out an oldie for today's project. I found one of the first Cricut carts I owned, Christmas Cards. I think that is the name, it has been re-released by Cricut. However, I must worn you this cartridge does not come with instructions. I searched the web and found a couple of good videos on youtube that helped. But with this cart you are basically winging it! So I ended up not using all the layers. I like how it turned out but the curve at the bottom might pose a problem. I saw in some of the examples they had cut that part off, but I think it is an elegant touch.
I tried to find some really stunning and rich papers to use for this beautiful scene. Most came from bins sorted by color so I don't really know the brands. The background I believe is a Storytellers Club card stock.
Up next is Lisa!
Here is today's hop line-up in case you get lost along the way.
