Scrapbooking as much as possible, but sometimes getting distracted by birthdays and life!

Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop

I think it is so fun that the hop this month is exactly five months to the day until Christmas! Are you ready? Well, this hop should be a great place to get inspired if you need a little help in that department.

If you were hopping along with the Hop, welcome to my blog, you should have come from Alison’s blog. If you weren’t hopping and you’re just visiting me, welcome to you, too. If  you’d like to start the hop from the beginning or you’re lost here’s the list of blogs that are participating:

My main project is a small Simple Stories page for my December Daily album. Please see this post for more info on my concept for this album. Here’s my page about my love of snowflakes:

Ruth - 9

I created the top frame and snowflake with my Silhouette Cameo machine and the 12 pc December Daily set from Lori Whitlock (cutting off the outer two rings of the circle.) I love how I’m able to put whatever number(s) I need into the corner to indicate what day it is. It’s also wonderful that it works as a frame for a 4×6 landscape style pocket so what I wanted to share can be tucked inside.

I used Simple Stories December Documented paper for the die cuts and their Sn@p Christmas for the 4×6 cards on the top and bottom. I used sequins from my stash, the wood veneer snowflake is from Paper Chase and a Sakura white Jelly Roll pen for the faux stitching.

I belong to a group of crafty ladies on Yahoo! called Scrappin-n-Chattin and I thought I would share with you some of my Christmas in July challenge cards. These were made from a kit from Pinecone Press using Simple Stories’ 25 Days of Christmas collection:

Ruth - 18 Train

Ruth - 14 Peace

Ruth - 8 Poinsettia

Ruth - 7 Music

 

And these two are from an old card kit from Basic Grey:

Ruth - 13 village

Ruth - 11 Frosty

You’ll find other Christmas cards in my past two posts, if you’re looking for more inspiration.

Thanks again for stopping by! It’s fun to create Christmas or winter themed projects when it’s warm outside! Even though we had a very harsh winter, I still think snowflakes are beautiful!

To continue on with the hop, you’ll head to Lee-Anne’s blog. Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a wonderful Christmas in July!

Ruth
