Christmas in July - Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Monday everyone!  We are mid-way through the current Linky Party at Craftin Desert Diva's, and it is Team B's turn to inspire you!  Tara challenged us to create a Christmas in July project.  Here is what I have created for today:



I love my simple card.  The silhouettes are from the Silhouette Online Store.  The paper is mostly from Michaels except the gold which is Stampin Up.  You can find Christmas sentiments in lots of places, and I found this one on Be Inspired.  For me, it reflects the true meaning of Christmas.




I hope you all come play with us!  There is still 1 week left in our party, so be sure to link up by August 3rd.  There are great prizes for a few lucky participants, so get your crafty on!  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Flower Bouquet - PDE

Happy Tuesday everyone!  It's linky party day over at Pause Dream Enjoy.  Today, Janis challenged us to make a project showcasing 3 or MORE PATTERNED PAPERS!!  Here is what I created:

I made this paper bouquet of flowers for my daughter's teacher as a year end gift.  I made it with We R Memory Keepers Flower Punch Board.


Anyone who visits my blog with any regularity, will know what a challenge this is for me.  I don't regularly use patterned paper at all, let alone 3 or more in the same project!


You can buy stems in a kit of 10, to help you put the flowers together.  They are really easy to make!





The challenge starts today and ends August 5th.  Please hop over to Pause Dream Enjoy, see what the rest of the Design Divas came up with, and play along with us.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Isn't it cute?  The film strip is from Miss Kate Cuttables, you can find the file HERE.  The cutie faces are all from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I used 4 of their stamp sets.  Their store is HERE.  I did some doodling with my Sakura Jelly Roll pens and chalked with my SU Pastel Chalk.  The paper is from Recollection, the button from Walmart and the twine from DoodleBug Designs.  Below is a close up of my sentiment, so you can see just how perfect the font is.




Below is a picture of the Be Inspired stamp set.  It has so many great sentiments on it!
