Christmas in July

Today I continue to work on holiday projects for Anna Griffin's next appearance on HSN for September 9th. I look forward to sharing a bunch of those cards and scrapbook pages with you soon. Until then, I made this Anna Griffin Christmas card for you. 





Yes, I used another of the Angelic Card Topper as a focal point for this design. They're just so pretty and they capture the spirit and magic of Christmas.

The Scoop

Today I'd like to share a fun summery note card I made with Scraptastic Club's July 2015 kit called Summer Rolls. Ooh la la just look at those glittery ice cream treats included in the kit, part of the Poolside collection made by Crate Paper. 





I think the receipt accent is so clever! I love it! And those prices! Reminds me of when I was a kid and you could get three scoops of ice cream for just .35 cents at Thrify drug store! Those were the days! I even remember the flavors I always ordered...orange sherbet, coffee almond fudge and mint chip. What a combo! I remember the person who scooped my ice cream saying once, "If that flavor combination doesn't make you sick....!" Ha! Good memories!

Christmas - Anna Griffin Style

Hello! I've been a busy little crafter bee creating lots of projects for Anna Griffin's next appearance on HSN coming up on September 9th.


There will be spooky fun Halloween products for sale along with Christmas goodies. 


Yesterday I was working on some Christmas  projects so I thought I'd make a quick holiday card to share with you today using some of my favorite Anna Griffin supplies. 


I love her glitter paper because I can add sparkle to my projects without wearing it on my face all day! 


That little angel is one of my favorite products from last year, the Angelic Card Toppers. 

Can you believe fall and the holidays are right around the corner? I keep trying to ignore that fact. I'm a warm weather kind of gal and I've been enjoying summer so much. Ahhhh long days and watermelon! Heck, we haven't even gone on our annual family beach trip yet! Coming up!

Doughnut Cards

I love the Fun Stamper's Journey Yummy & Delicious line! All those ice creams, cupcakes and candies drive my sweet tooth wild! Would you like to add a few delicious doughnuts to the mix? 


Think of all the flavors you can make! And you can top them with sprinkles, coat them with sugar or smear them with chocolate! 


To make doughnut shaped cards you'll need the Journey Circles die set and some Oatmeal Cookie card stock.


Cut your card stock to 8" by 4" and fold in half. Then with some re-positional tape, arrange the largest and smallest Journey Circles dies to your card stock with the largest die overlapping the top in order to keep it from cutting the entire circumference .


Now cut a 4" by 4" square with the card stock you plan to use as your frosting and cut the same way you did with your doughnut base. With a pair of scissors cut a wavy outline along the outer edge. 


Inside the my doughnut cards I stamped a sentiment using the Hello Scoop stamp set. 


Yum! Doughnuts! Calorie free too!

I just had an idea...you could use Journey Glaze to add a realistic sheen to your chocolate frosting. Oh just image the many kinds of doughnuts you can make and all you can do with them! How about a doughnut garland!

Have fun!
