Merry & Bright in July!

Today I am playing along with a Christmas in July challenge on The Paper Players! When my daughter saw me creating this card she said "It's too early for Christmas cards. Why do people have Christmas in July?" She really is not fond of this idea, she prefers to keep Christmas in December!! {silly girl}

I have also used a mix of patterned papers which happens to be the challenge on Heart 2 Heart this week. I love mixing and matching different papers from various kits. It really stretches the possibilities of projects when you do this. I often find it is necessary in scrapbooking, because the photographs have a mix of colors!


The papers I chose are from the kits Stella, Rockin' and Dotty for You. My "merry&bright" was cut using the new Cricut Artbooking collection available August 1st. I added some red sparkle glitz to the "bright" for some festive fun!

Amy -

Love your color combination here! I'm with you - I love combining paper packs for a unique look and kind of miss some of our monochromatic paper backs for that reason. But, I'm having so much fun using our new heavy papers for mini albums with Artbooking that I won't complain - LOL!

Thanks for sharing your joyful Christmas card with us at Heart2Heart Challenges this week. Tell your daughter that some of us have to get a head start otherwise we'll never get all our projects done by Dec 25th.

Hugs,

Paige

Christmas is wonderful any time of year! Thanks for sharing your pretty card with us @ H2H! I love how you've mixed up the paper packs, and that red glitz makes the card oh-so-festive.
