Anywho, if you'd like a chance to win the placemat set, just comment here and a winner will be chosen randomly on Saturday. Just let me know where you get your inspiration when crafting. Good luck and check out the great living room furniture at Living Rooms Diret!

Another Christmas in July

There is so much great Christmas inspiration at the C'bug Christmas in July Challenge.
The stampers are so talented there! I got out my Cuttlebug and used my SU Curly Label Punch, Snowflake Die as well as my Cuttlebug embossing folder, snowflakes. It's such a beautiful embossed background!
I also love the curly label set. I'm thinking it's retired. SAD!!!!! Hope you like!

Christmas in July

This is what I've come up with for our July swap. I used the awesome DSP series for Cranberry Crisp (i think) and the Alpine ribbon from last year's Holiday Mini, the circle cutter, the paper cutter, and Soft Suede, all from SU to build the card. The image is from Inkadinkadoo's clear stamps, Winter Birds.
I hope you can tell the owl is inside the card and circle cutter was used to make the window once the DSP was adhered.
I love the thin strips of cardstock you can make with SU's paper cutter. They just add a little interest and help tie the ribbon in with the card. Hope you had a happy 4th! Thanks for stopping by.
