Christmas in July

I have been the guest designer for Lasting Memories during the month of July, and I have truly loved it!  I am excited to let you know that Karen has asked me to stay as a design team, and I am overjoyed!  This is a fabulous way to get layouts done, and I appreciate the challenge every week.    So now won't you play along with our layout challenge this week?  We are celebrating Christmas in July at Lasting Memories! 

These are pictures from last Christmas, and I so enjoy looking at them (even more so now that they are scrapped!)  Shane and Miss Chanel are such good buddies and she is alwaysright in there helping Shane with everything!

I used our new Christmas package from CTMH called Believe.  I have used the red and green sides, but if like blue for Christmas, you'll find that along with some whimsical Santas on the other side.  The trees, heart, flower, and star were cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge and then stamped with the matching stamps.  I also cut the snowflakes with this fabulous new cartridge.  If you click on the photo and look closely, I used the blue side of the paper for the top layer.   I used a pattern from the Jeanette Lynton's Cherish book for this layout.  I go back to that book often because the layouts are simple with clean lines.  I love that!

Be sure to stop by Lasting Memories - the rest of the team has some great examples for you!
