Day 15: Summertime Fun!


Welcome to Day 15 of the 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Showcase!  After yesterday's Christmas bounty we are taking a break and soaking up some sun.  Today's theme is all about August, Summertime, BBQ, and Picnics.  So pour a glass of iced tea or lemonade, apply some sunscreen and grab your shades!




Court used the Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge to create this
sweet treats card.  Visit her blog for all the details.






Celeste recycled an old coffee can into a super cute vacation savings bank.
She used the Life's A Beach cutting file from PaperCraftingWorld.com.
Visit her blog for more details.





Debbie used today's FREE digital stamp along with the
free calendar page and topper to create her 6" x 6" August calendar.
 Make sure to check out the details on her blog!





Evelyn used the Cricut 3 Birds on Parade cartridge to create
this adorable card.  Visit her blog for more details!



Melin created this layout for the Bug Magazine this past summer. While the Bug Magazine is no longer going to be printing in 2012, it will continue to be in the "Scrapbooking World". They generously sponsored our 25 Days last year.
Here is a view of the layout. I used some wonderful Quick Quotes paper and 

Here is  a close up of the chair, umbrella and shells.
Would you like the step by step direction for this project that was printed in the Bug Magazine. It is a complete cutting chart so that you can re-create this layout for yourself.  Just see our Freebies section below and you will be able to get the FREE PDF download of the information. But don't delay, it will only be up today :)

Melin created this tag using today's FREE tree cutting file and some pretty twine from THETWINERY.COM


Here is a close up of the tree. I also used some stickles and pearls available at CUTTERSCREEK.COM and some of the beautiful designer paper and inks from Quick Quotes.
