Christmas In July

Morning everyone, Becky here today with the last of our anything goes projects for July.....

With less than 5 months to Christmas, it's not too early to get on with your Christmas cards. This is Skating Friends from LOTV and has been coloured with Inktense pencils, and I have got my snow tex out for the first time this year, this stuff is fab for snow effects.

The papers are from the 6 x 6 paper pad Vintage Frost Basics from Maja Design, this collection is great for the slightly more non traditional Christmas colours. I have distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz tool.

As always there are links to all of the products used at the end of the post, just click on the thumbnail and you will go to the product in the store.

Top Picks - June Challenge

Hi All Crafters!
We're just a few days away from August, but there's still time to enter the July challenge...
The theme is...

You probably thought I had forgotten about the Top Picks from the June challenge, but nope that''s not the case. Just that I've tried to make the most out of Summer and the glorious weather, plus of course that I've been on vacation. :-)

It was far from easy to narrow it down with so many gorgeous entries but the ladies who made it this time, from the 136 Summer Garden entries are:

Congrats Ladies; hope you'll wear your badges with pride!

Little Indian

Hello Everyone,

Can't believe it's Monday again, but we did have glorious weather this weekend. which is always a bonus but it's sooo hard to craft in this heat and impossible to put a fan on as everything blows everywhere, well it does with what I have out on the table, lol.

My card today is uses an image from Wee Stamps,  sooooo cute.  I have added frantage and walnut stain distress ink to the edges of the image.

The gorgeous papers are one of my favourite sheets by Maya Design called Vintage Autumn Basics, XXII.

The leaf die is from Noor Design by Joycraft and I dabbed some snowtex on them to give them texture, and you know this is one if my favourties for adding texture.

The lace along the bottom is Lace Cherie and I added the strip from the bottom of the 12x12 paper.  The butterflies were cut from the same paper.

I have used a little mini paper bag to add the tag in and positioned it under the paper.  These are really handy.

 Hugs Tracy x

I wanted to show you all the gorgeous new Maja Design papers..
They are so incredibly beautiful, aren't they?

The flowers on this card are from WOC and Kort&Godt and I love them to bits..
And there are some berries and flower sprays too..

Here's one of the super cute Clay Hearts and the lovely Maya Road Love Heart Clip..
There are lots and lots of pearls all over the place..

Of course I had to use some beautiful Lace ''Reinette'' and a charm.. 
My beloved Butterfly that I decorated with some rhinestones and a bit of gesso..

Here you can see some more stunning flowers and some cheesecloth sneaking under those..
