Christmas in July Fun Shop Part One

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!
Today I am heading to Evansville with my daughter and granddaughter Hailey......along with about 6-other scrapbooking friends and we are doing a retreat weekend.  I will hopefully be able to figure out this computer issue I am having and be able to share some pictures with you next week of this weekends retreat AND Twoie's baby shower from last weekend with you.

But for today........I have three of the cards my fellow SaddleBrooke Stamper Club Friends made at our Christmas in July Fun Shop.  Let's jump right in with this share........
First up is the card that Linda created........
She embossed two Whisper White panels with a gorgeous swirl folder and then we dragged some distress ink over the raised image to allow the embossing to POP right off the card.
We also created this OH SO PRETTY holly from a branch punch and added two red buttons for the berries.  BRILLIANT IDEA LINDA!
Next up is the GORGEOUS card that Maureen created....... 
This card SERIOUSLY didn't photo well......but you can see some of the clustered trees that were stamped and then sprinkled with glitter to pop them right off the front of this card. 
We also created this big snow-flake and raised it off the front of the card with some dimensional adhesive.  Adding some glitter and a single pearl to the center of the snow-flake really completed this BEAUTIFUL card.  
And my last card share for today is the card that Abbie created...... 
We began by two-step stamping this LOVELY Stampin' UP! tree and then added a fun little glimmer star to the top of our tree.
We also used the new stripes embossing folder on our Cherry Cobbler panel to add some real fun to this card.  OVERALL......GORGEOUS card!
Thanks for joining me today.  I'll be back tomorrow to share the second half of my Christmas in July cards with you.........Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!


  1. You hang with some talented friends! I would love it if Stampin' Up! offered that swirl embossing folder!

  2. Wow....I love the swirls. What a neat idea. I will add this to my project learn list. The colors are awesome. The buttons pretty with the rhinestones in them.

    Double Wow....I love those gorgeous, glittery trees. The snowflake is awesome too with the pearl in it.

    Triple Wow....The color combination is awesome. I love how the DSP with the pattern runs across the center. The tree and the bow just ROCK!!! And, who wouldn't just love the glittery star on top!

    Very, very and very nicely done on all. Thank you so much for sharing!!
