Christmas in July Blog Hop

Welcome to the Cutters Creek Christmas in July Blog Hop! If you came from Fran’s blog you are in the right place, if not and you would like to start at the beginning please jump to the Cutters Creek Design Team blog.

We have some great projects in store for you today to provide you plenty of inspiration to help you jump start your holiday crafting. So grab your favorite beverage, sit back and relax, and get ready for some fun, inspiration, and the chance to win some blog candy too!

Here is what I made for you today.  I used a paper pack from My Mind’s Eye.  There paper is always full of such great patterns and I love mixing and matching them all. I did something different for this card and just used the elements of the paper instead of adding any outside stamped images or die cuts.  Here is a picture of my card.

I used a couple of different patterns for the base of the card.  I then cut the sentiment from another page of the pad and matted it with a coordinating pattern.  After I glued that down, I cut some additional embellishments from the paper.  I fussy cut around the little bird and pop dotted him up from the background  I added a lot of stickles and spica pens to the elements to give them a little shine.  Here is a close up of the sentiment and the bird.

 I wanted to add a little bit more so I fussy cut this little banner out from another one of the sheets.

It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the banner has some added bling as well. 

I hope you have enjoyed all the projects this weekend, and don’t forget, we have some awesome blog candy for you.
