Christmas in July Blog Hop

HI everyone and welcome to the Christmas in July week long guest designer get together. This event is hosted by CROSS MY HEART PAPERCRAFTS by GISELLE VARELA and Nadia's Beautiful Mess. Thanks so very much for letting me participate as a guest designer3 times this week. :D along with some other grrrreat bloggers.. Stop by Giselle's blog HERE to see all the guest designers for the day.

I love Christmas and the best part about it is that we all get to give. Part of giving something to someone, is the love you put into it. What better way to show how much you love someone by giving something handmade.

I altered this from to not only reflect a gift, but to also reflect summer. It is July after all. :D

I stuck the frame down with crafters companion spray and then cut around all of the edges.  The beautiful paper is by DCWV (Lemon Flower Stack).    The big flowers are from Oriental trading Company along with all of the bling around the frame.  I also uses yellow stickles around the frame in spots to give is some extra sparkle.

The cute little butterflies are punched out using a fiskars punch.  I glued them down and then added glossy accents by Stampin Up to them to make them shine and to give them  some stability.

I hope you enjoyed my frame and you get lots of ideas. Merry Christmas in July :D
