in july?! what?!

Wow! We are officially in the month of July, which means we are more than half way through this year! Pretty soon, it’ll be Christmas right around the corner. Yikes! Okay, okay… let’s change the subject before everyone starts to freak out on me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today, I’m excited to share the July sketch created by fellow Imaginisce designer, Tammy. She created a card sketch for all of the Imaginisce designers to use.

…so this month, I created a simple card using the latest Imaginisce release, Birthday Bash.

Now doesn’t that make a cute birthday card?!ย  Oh, and more importantly, make sure to head on over to the Imaginisce blog for details on how to win some of these latest products. You are definitely going to want to play along this month!

Also, TAAFOMFT posted a new challenge! Right when I found out that the prompt was to scrap about your favorite store, I knew what I wanted to scrap about – Target, of course!

This layout is obviously not a typical size that I normally design. Why? Well, Bekka challenged me to create a 6×12 layout, so I did just that. It was definitely quite a task because I’m so used to working with 12×12 sized layouts. Surprisingly, however, it turned out really well. What do you think of this one? Make sure to swing on by TAAFOMFT to gain inspiration from the rest of the DT. I’m sponsoring this challenge, and I’m giving away tons of Imaginisce goodies to one lucky participant!

Lastly, here’s a random layout that I created a couple of days ago:

While I was ransacking my older stash of paper, I found these Fancy Pants Designs papers. Obviously, I was hoarding them for their cuteness, hehe. ๐Ÿ˜‰

On another note, hopefully these projects will inspire you to create a project or two.

Happy Thursday!

PS: O.M.Gee, Suzy! The crop yesterday was super fun! Thank you, girls, for the laughs. …and Gina, you rock! Thanks for letting us print our photos. We need to get together again soon!
