Fun Friday - Christmas in July

Hi guys,

This weeks YNS Fun Friday is celebrating Christmas in July. I used our Holiday Snow Globe set that was released Christmas 2011. I also used our Light Up the Holidays Die, that was from that same release.

I love making Christmas cards early. I used some Polar White Flower Soft for snow inside the globe. I added one of my famous (lol) Bottle Caps. These are so fun to make, so many options with a bottle cap!i purchased the bottle caps at Hobby Lobby Craft Supply. My paper I purchased at Hobby Lobby The Paper Company's Four Season Stack.

My favorite part of the card was adding the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Punch with Velium Paper to make icicles on my string of lights.

Also, make sure you visit us at SCS on The YNS Fun Friday Xmas Thread to see all the Christmas in July cards that were made by the DT for this month!

Thanks for Visiting :)

Sneak Peek Day 2 - Your Next Stamp...New Release

First, I would like to wish every a happy and safe 4th of July. I hope everyone enjoys their day off! 

Today is day 2 of the peeks for this month's release with YNS for July.

I used our new set Ellie Jogging, which is super fun!

I love the little accessory sneaker stamp it came with, which I decided to stamp along the bottom as a border. Once they where completed I just had to add laces to the sneakers.  I used sewing thread and twine to lace them up :) 

This set is so fun to work with. The laces where so fun to make. I added some bling to Ellie as well, and used our flower fun spring grass die with green felt, as well as our tag galore 2 die for the sentiment.

Thank you for visiting and make sure you stop back for our release on July 6th!
