Christmas in July 2009

Yes, it's that time of the year again! I had my 4th annual CIJ Stamp Camp and we made some fun, simple cards! I will not be listing all the ingredients, but feel free to contact me if you have any questions!


This card uses Holiday Blitz images; base is Sahara Sand. I believe the layout came from the CAS blog.


I thought I had gotten this idea from Nicki's blog, but I couldn't find it there, so perhaps if someone remembers, they can let me know. It is very simple but striking! Here is what it looks like on the inside:

Edited to add: It was Leonie's blog! You can see her sample here.


These images are all stamped in Encore Gold for a rich look.

(Sorry for the bad pix--I am dealing with a sinus headache today and just don't feel like dealing with them!)

DSCF4616 This uses the pinecone image from Autumn Days along with the Soft Holly wheel.

DSCF4613 And last, a non-SU card; these images are from Artistic Outpost. They have wonderful vintage images that I just love!

Be sure to stop back tomorrow as it is Color Throwdown Wednesday! We're changing things up a little, so make sure you "tune in!" TFL!


  1. LeAnne, these are beautiful! I particularly like the middle two!! Fantastic! Hope you're feeling better soon!

  2. All of these are fabulous! And good for you for getting a head start!

  3. I love your Christmas cards, and you've made me feel guilty for not even thinking of mine yet....soon! I love the first one because I'm a sucker for red and green when it comes to the holidays.
    Hope the sinus headache subsides, I'm off to think snow...

  4. Wish I could have come! These are awesome!

  5. Wow, these are all fabbo, I love that white one with the gold star, very effective!
