Day 11: Dads, Grads & Brides

What do Dads, Grads and Brides all have in common?  The month of June!  Welcome to Day 11 of the 25 Days of Christmas Crafting Showcase.  We're stepping away from the mistletoe and snow and focusing on the month traditionally filled with weddings, graduations and Father's Day.  Our Design Teams have been hard at work whipping up some awesomeness for your viewing pleasure!

Celeste created this cute to salute to Dad with a
digi stamp that she cut out by hand!  Make sure you check out all the details at her blog.

Debbie used today's FREE digi stamp to create her 6" x 6" June calendar page
saluting the king of the castle - Dad!   Check out all the details at her blog.

Linda created this beautiful 12" x 12" wedding layout using the Cricut Flower
Shoppe cartridge.  Head over to her blog the see all the special details.

Evelyn created this super cute graduation step-card using the Cricut
Once Upon A Princess, Everyday Paper Dolls, Wrap It Up
and Alphalicious cartridges.  Check out all the details at her blog.

Christel created this shaped card worthy of a black-tie affair using the
Cricut Wedding Solutions, Storybook and Cricut Classic Font cartridges.
Make sure to visit her blog to see all the special details.

Christel used the Cricut Summer in Paris and Storybook
cartridges for this yummy wedding card.

Here is a photo of today's FREE Cutting file. It is this Father's Day Title.
This title came about because of a class that the amazing KLO did over at the Pazzles Craft Room Site.  This is the perfect border ready to go on a page when I get some pictures of Father's Day!
Pazzles is one of our sponsors and a year membership to the craft room is available to one lucky grand prize winner! If you haven't checked out the Pazzles Craft Room GO HERE....They are the perfect source for learning all about your Funtime Driven Software as well as the Pazzles Inspiration and other wonderful craft ideas!

Melinda created this wonderful Father's Day Wallet Gift-card/ Money Holder.
She used some QUICK QUOTES Cherry Truffle designer paper, Cuttlebug Embossing folder Available at CUTTERSCREEK.COM and some brown cardstock. Don't forget each of these sponsors has a wonderful discount available for your shopping!

Here is a shot of the front of the wallet

Here is a shot of the back to show the embossing.

Here is a shot to show the wallet open. It has a long "pocket" for the money as well as smaller pockets.

Here is a close up of one of the pockets. I used some faux stitching to complete the look.
