Christmas in August again!

Keep on using up that Christmas paper! Look at the fun card that Mum on the Run did! STINKIN CUTE! Leave a link in my comments if you take me up on my challenge to use Christmas patterned paper in a non-christmas way, and I'll post your blog address so that everyone can see the fun cards you come up with!

I was playing with this Paper Salon Christmas paper from last year, "Dazzle Multi Dots". Never touched it when I made my xmas cards.

I bought the "kissin & tellin" stamp at Michael's for a buck, because I thought it would go great with Cosmobella! The little weiner dog is from Penny Black, from Joy and Daisy at Eclectic Paperie.


So is this a new layout? I cut 2 pieces of coordinating paper to measure 4" x 5 1/4. Then I laid them on top of each other, and took the the lid off of a jar that holds my ribbon. I traced the lid off center, then cut along the trace marks. I then interchanged the 2 patterns and made 2 opposite card layouts with the paper. Make sense?

These are so great, glad to see that I am not the only one who uses saucers, plates, etc to draw circles, and half circles.

LOVE how you did your layout. I would have ended up wasting half of both sheets to get the same result. I WILL be getting that dog stamp. My dog is also long and short, though not quite THAT long and short. So it really cracked me up.
