Christmas in July
Christmas in July? Of course! Kim Gaughan is getting an early start to get things done, and enjoy the Christmas season when it arrives! See how what she created today!
Happy Last Day of July!
This past month I have been making Christmas Cards! This is a first for me. I'm usually not ready to start making Christmas projects until the beginning of December.
This year I thought I'd celebrate a little bit of Christmas in July and get a head start!
Here's a sneak peek at two cards I made with my handy dandy eCraft and SVG Cuts Christmas Cheer SVG Kit.
SVG Cuts - Christmas Cheer SVG Kit
Cardstock - I used some cardstock I had leftover from last year by My Mind's Eye and K&Company
Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive
Scotch ATG Gun
Cuttlebug (but will soon will use the eBosser!)
Embossing Folders - Provo Craft and Darice
To get a lot of Christmas Cards made fast and easy, I actually made them exactly how they are in SVG Cuts Kit. Yes, the exact measurements and all! These cards are really beautiful as is. And these cards are so cool! I imported the SVG's into SCAL3 per the SVG Cuts instructions/sizes and cut them out with my eCraft. Inked all of the edges with Colorbox Ink and adhered them together with glue and pop dots.
But before I glued all these pieces together, I did add a little bit of embossing onto these cards. Yeah, I totally broke out my Cuttlebug and embossing folders and went to town! Thanks to Denise and her wonderful eBosser videos I saw last week, I had to do it!!! I am so excited about the eBosser coming out that I was itching to start embossing right away. I can't wait to be able to use my eCraft and the eBosser together. I know it's going to be awesome!
Did you start making your Christmas Cards in July?
How do you organize your embossing folders?
And, Is anyone else as excited as I am for the eBosser?!?!?!!? =)
