A Christmas in July Snow Day

I would love to have a little bit of cold weather right now. It’s been over 100 degrees so many days that nothing sounds as good as a little bit of Christmas in July. I decided to make a 2 page layout for my Christmas in July project. It was really simple and quick to do with my cricut Imagine. I used the Snow Angel cartridge to print both pages of my background paper. Snow Angel has some of the sweetest looking images on it I have ever seen. I love printing the patterns on textured cardstock, I think it gives a great look.

After I printed my background pages, I printed and cut a few elements to add to it. I popdotted the mom figure in the coat, but I glued the snow angel child directly to the paper. I love the dimension of the pop dots, but if you were making a snow angel, you would be flat in the snow, so I applied that one directly to the paper. The title is from Winter Woodland and filled with patterns from Snow Angel. I used the same technique on the companion page. I stuck the dear directly to the paper, but pop dotted the adorable little snowman up, so I could tuck the picture underneath it a little bit. All I needed to make this layout was my cricut Imagine, 2 cartridges, and a few sheets of white cardstock, you can’t get much easier than that!utters
