Cooking with Cricut Challenge #96 - Christmas In July

Welcome to another challenge Wednesday here and over at COOKING WITH CRICUT! This week we are cooking up our Christmas In July projects using our scraps! This is a great project for using some of my seemingly endless stash of scraps!

 I'm sharing a few pics of how I store my scraps and keep them organized.
This is a file cart that I got at an office supply store - it is just perfect for keeping my scraps organized by color!

It fits so neatly under my Cricut table! 

Here is my completed mini album for our grandson's first Christmas. It is a Piggy Tales lift-the-flap album. It was so easy to decorate because I had so many gorgeous papers in my scraps stash!
I used Lyrical Letters and Jolly Holidays for the cover.

The inside pages:

The baby bird is from 3 Birds on Parade.

The filmstrip is from Wall Decor and More. The "smile" and camera are from Going Places.

The Christmas Tree is from Cheerful Seasons - I think! :-/ I forgot to write this one down so I'll have to go back and check! Oooops!

The winter hat border is from Cheerful Seasons.

This page just has journaling boxes and stickers - no Cricut cuts. This paper is all from Creative Memories.

Back cover.

I hope today's project has inspired you to get busy with your Christmas crafts a little early, because, let's face it, the Christmas season will be upon us before we know it! :-) 

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to head on over to COOKING WITH CRICUT to link up your very own Christmas in July project using your scraps! I know you can do it!! :)

Until next time, keep creating!
