Christmas in July! {Day 2}

We wish you a Merry Christmas . . . in July! Welcome to Cooking With Cricut and Paper Crafting World's “sneak peek” into our annual 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Fun, which happens each year in December. Every day this week we will bring you a variety of different ideas to kick-start your holiday preparations!

I decided to jump in and participate in the PaperCraftingWorld.com Design Team challenge today which is all about using scraps.  I don't know about you, but I have tons and tons of scraps and I use them whenever I can.  This entire layout was done with scraps -- with the exception of the two 12" x 12" sheets of green card stock I used for my base.

Here is the recipe:

  • PaperCraftingWorld.com cutting file -- Santa & Rudolph.
  • Santa measures 7 3/8" tall assembled.
  • Rudolph measures 5 1/4" tall assembled.
  • Photo mats are cut at 4" x 6".
  • The journaling box measures 4" x 4".
  • "Merry Christmas" cut at 7" wide from Cricut's Joys of the Season cartridge.
  • Chalk and pen doodling finish off the jolly old elf and his antlered helper.

This layout will accompany the ones I made for this past weekend's "Crops of Luv" Blog Hop.  "Crops of Luv" works hand in hand with the Make A Wish Foundation and creates scrapbooks for families who have children facing life-threatening illnesses.   If you would like more information about this organization, or would like to make a monetary, scrapbook  page or supplies donation please visit their web site at www.cropsofluv.com

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head over to Cooking With Cricut and see what the other Design Team members have created!  And check back with us each day this week for some great Christmas projects -- tomorrow the CWC Design Team will have another great challenge that you can join in on!

P.S.  I'm linking my card up at Bitten by the Bug 2 and 2 Sisters Challenge Blog.
