Christmas ATC (July CCM Challenge)

Today I was challenged by my friend, Irene to make a Christmas ATC. This was in my Cafemom group. I guess Christmas in July is BIG.... It's all over blog world today! lol

I had 24 hours to make my Christmas ATC. I just got out my DCWV Shimmer stack and went to work. I did not even had a plan. This is what I came up with. I used some stamps, bling, and my trusty glitter & Stardust pens! Hope you like it :)

Here is a picture without the flash on, so you can see the glimmer & glitter!

Summer Firefly ATC & A Beachy Journal box

Over on Cafemom I'm in a couple Summer themed swaps. The first is an ATC swap-- all things summer!! I chose to make my ATC about Summer fireflies. I used a dark blue CS and added some Glimmer Mist. I cut my Fireflies in a jar from Stretch Your Imagination (great cart!). I {of course} used some Stickles and glimmer pens. I covered the jar with Glossy Accents. I used my Gypsy to weld the word Summer. Unfortunately, I can't remember what cart the letters were from! LOL 

The second Summer swap was Beach themed. I did journal boxes. I kept these pretty simple. I cut the shape from Elegant Edges using the frame option. I dry embossed the top layer with D'vine Swirls and added a beach Umbrella. I had to cut 2 umbrellas for each JB, to add the layers (I cut them apart).
