Hello friends! You should arrived here from Ruth Gauss's blog.
Practical Scrappers has a monthly blog hop and it's all about scrapping our stash that all of us scrapbookers are sure to have. For July, there is a special challenge to use our stash and create a layout, card or any project with the theme of Christmas or winter. We like to call it "Christmas In July".
For my project, I chose to create a Christmas layout from some Heidi Swapp's Believe Collection from 2013 and a Summer 2014 Pagemaps Sketch. I used a one inch punch to cut out several paper squares and assemble them in a grid/quilt design. This is a great way to use up small amounts of leftover scraps of papers. I then cut the ornament die cut shape on my Silhouette Cameo and then stitched around the outside edge of the patterned paper squares and also the edge of the background paper and added some 3X4 cards from the collection, a chipboard heart and some wood star embellishments to complete the layout.
Here are some more closeups of my layout
Now it's time to hop over to Cheryl Freet's blog. If you get lost along the way, here is the list of participants in the hop.
