Christmas in July 2015 – Day 18



Here is Day 18’s card on the 25th of July, only 5 months til the big day!!  I absolutely love how this card came out and not sure I want to send it to anyone!


I used the Viva La Verve July Week #3 sketch with Verve Stamps Pinecone Christmas from last year. It is such a pretty set!  I also went a bit pattern paper crazy with this one, great sketch for it!


2015 Card 74 - Verve Pinecone Christmas


Funny story – I loved the tabbed border on the sketch and thought how can I recreate that?  I was going to hand cut one and then remembered I had a few tab dies from MFT.  Well when I was searching through my dies, I found tabbed borders!  I had gotten them from MFT as a free with $60 gift and kept them even though I figured I wouldn’t use them. Ha!


Here is the sketch~



I’ll be back shortly with another card. I didn’t remember until this afternoon it was PTI Blog Hop day so I whipped up a quick card to enter.

Christmas in July 2015 – Day 10



Good morning!


I made this card last night but it was late and needed to dry.  I started with Viva La Verve’s Week 2 sketch and Verve’s Christmas Joy stamp set.


2015 Card 66 - Verve Christmas Joy


The tags were cut with MFT’s Tag Blueprints 2 and the circle was cut with MFT’s Stitched Circle Stax. I colored the bird in with copics and added some Stardust stickles to the bottom. I added some ribbon to the tag, that scrunchy stuff that was popular a few years ago.


Here is the sketch~



Have a great day! Not sure what I’ll be up too, hopefully more crafting!

Christmas in July 2015 – Day 4




Tonight I inked up Verve Stamps Santa’s Helper for the first time and used the July Week #1 sketch at Viva La Verve sketches.


Isn’t this reindeer adorable? 🙂  He wasn’t too hard to fussy cut thankfully.

I used some old stash on this and mostly scraps at that! They are from Basic Grey Jovial and I added an old Prima poinsettia for embellishment.

The rest of June’s cards

Good morning!


It’s the last day of the month and the year is half over. How did that happen so quickly?!


I made a ton of cards this month and didn’t get the chance to blog them all so I’m sharing them in one post to finish June.


This one was for my husband’s birthday a few weeks ago.  I used Sketch #273 at Sweet Sunday Sketch.  The adorable bunny is from The Cat’s Pajamas.  The baseball themed card went with his baseball themed gift of a Yankees t-shirt AND game tickets for us to see the Yankees play my team, The Boston Red Sox, at Yankee Stadium in early August.

2015 Card 44 - Cats Pajamas Play Ball



The next two cards are sympathy cards that I had to send out early in the month.


This first one used Sketch #272 at Sweet Sunday Sketch and my go-to set, Forever in Our Hearts, from Verve Stamps.  I also used some ancient Basic Grey papers.

2015 Card 41 - Verve Forever in Our Hearts


This last card used Sketch #364 from Techno Stamper.  I inked up Stampin’ Up!’s Lovely as a Tree for the first time. I feel like it was a rite of passage to finally use this long time favorite of many SU stampers.

2015 Card 42 - SU Lovely as a Tree


I’ve gotta go get ready for my last day of work before my mini break! Hopefully lots of crafting will be happening over the next 5 days.
