Christmas in July Card Challenge

This is my first challenge that I have ever participated in. It is from ""," Christmas in July Challenge". So here is my version of a Christmas Card. It is a 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 card. I inked around the edges with gold ink from Color Box. I applied a burgundy piece of cardstock cut at 5 1/4 X 8, and trimmed the bottom with a Fiskars border punch. I applied my homemade burgundy glimmer mist to the burgundy cardstock. The title "Celebrate" is cut at 1" from the Celebration Cartridge, then applied to a 2 1/2 X 4 3/4 burgundy cardstock that was applied to a white cardstock that was slightly larger to leave a shadow. The tree was cut at 5 1/2" in a gold cardstock from Lyrical Letters. I applied a gold Stickles to the tree and the work celebrate. Last I applied 4 of my homemade gold Skittles. Hope you like the card. I had fun making this card.

Simple Baby Card

I just received my Cricut Sampler cartridge from using my Cricut Reward points. I couldn't wait to play with it. Here is what I came up with. I used a 5X7 card. I inked around the edges with purple ink from Studio G. I used a Pink floral cardstock (sorry I don't know who it is by) measuring 6 3/4 X 4 3/4. Centered on the card base. But before attaching it I added three ribbons, 2 - 1/8" wide lavender, and 1 - 3/16" wide Pink (by Offray). I wrapped these ribbons around the front of the cardstock and taped them on the back with regular tape. Then attached to the card base. I cut my Onesie out at 3 1/2" with a pink cardstock, then cut it out again on shadow with a purple cardstock. This item can also be found on the New Arrival Cartridge. I also used Cotton Candy Stickles around the neck and sleeves. Attach this to your card to one side. Then I applied the wording. They are from Words&Crafts self-adhesive Chipboard words the baby package. Last I added six Skittles that I made in lavender. This is a very simple card to make. So just have fun. Thanks.

My Scrap Place

This is my small scrap place. It is located behind my sofa in our livingroom. So while I scrap our two dogs guard me from the sofa (have to keep it covered). My area may be small but I have everything that I need. I have a full sewing/quilting room the the third floor of our home. That use to be my haven before we got the new puppy and she does not like to be left alone, so we moved the scrapbook area to the livingroom. So no matter the size of your space make it work for you.

Homemade Glimmer Mist

These are the mini mister bottles that I found at a local store. The Glimmer mist was made with water, a few drops of ink (add or subtract the amount of ink to get the color you want), then add your perfect pearls (only a small amount is needed). Have fun and give it a try.

How to make a texture plate

I was just sitting around playing with chipboard from a cereal box and a piece of thick chipboard form Grafix that I purchased from HH, and this is what I came up with. I used a punch to make it, but you can use anything from just cutting it out freehand to using your Cricut.
