Christmas in July!!

Monday, Monday!!!

As always, Mondays are our reveal days for The Cuttlebug Spot. This week the theme was Christmas in July. I know, I know why are you focusing on Christmas so early - well, don't blame me blame WalMart and the other stores who are already carrying Christmas decorations!!! Each year it gets earlier and earlier but, I love Christmas so it is all good to me.

I used DCWV Christmas stack for the PP's, Stampin' Bella image, Copic markers, Heidi Grace flowers, MM felt flower, Misc Gems, Paper Studio Ribbons, Cintas ribbon (from WM) and the Snowflakes and Spots/Dots embossing folders.


And the Copics I used:


I also used this card for the ABC Challenge Blog's X on a sketch challenge. I really like going back through the archives for the ABC Challenge blog to see all the awesome cards and getting inspiration from the weekly letters.

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

PS I will go back through last weeks posts when I get home from work and see how many tried the Serendipity technique I featured and draw a winner for a little scrappy goody!!!

Hey girl!! Gosh I miss you! Hope all is well. I am by far your biggest "stamper" fan. These, like all your others, are amazing.
Hope to see you soon.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
