Christmas in July Blog Hop--Anything Goes

Welcome to the last of the Cricut Circle Christmas in July Blog Hops.  This weekend anything goes.  How fun!  If you've hopped over from Donna's blog http://carolinascreativecropper.blogspot.com/ then you are right on track.  If you'd like to start at the beginning please visit Paulette's blog http://scrapalette.blogspot.com/ so you don't miss a thing. 

Okay, I've created an advent flip calendar so my kiddos can countdown the days until Christmas :-)  I kept the design pretty simple and to keep the pages from becoming too bulky I didn't use any pop dots.  That was a challenge...LOL!  Enjoy :-)

I used a mix of matte, foils, and glitter papers.  Love how it turned out :-)

Side Step Card

Hello!  It's Monday and today is What Can My Mind Design with My Cricut Craft Room.  All of our designs today include a cow.  Mooo!  My mom grew up on a farm so I thought this would be a perfect time to use a Country Life cart and a cow to create a birthday card for her.

This is my first side step card.  I watched a few videos on Utube to learn how to cut the base.
