Christmas in Summer...

Late or early?  You decide!  S J Crafts is running a Christmas card making event called 6 on the 6th to help us make a few cards a month and hopefully do away with that last minute panic.  Lets face it, the last thing we need in December is more panic right?!  

I'm very time poor at the moment so mine were fast and furious and all the same design.  I found these toppers in my Christmas stash from a few years ago and it was good to use up some older supplies.  They were just from a cut-apart sheet so I layered them onto red or green cardstock and then popped a ribbon or some Christmassy trim underneath.  They were then mounted on coordinating paper and then onto red or green card blanks.  

They won't be the best cards in my collection but I'm happy that I have made a start, albeit a little later than intended!

 I've also been working on some very summery layouts too using Echo Park's Perfect Summer collection.  Here's a sneak of the two layouts that appeared on the SJ Crafts blog today.

There are quite a few more to come from this collection because I wanted to make the most of using the bright colours in this wonderful weather.  Check back soon!

Bye for now
