A Simple Christmas in August

Hi all!

It's challenge time over at Twisted Tuesdays! For challenge #56 we are to create something Christmas themed and the twist is it has to be CAS (clean and simple)

I made a card and a scrap page. Yeah, can you believe that?! :)

I made a faint gray line to represent the ground using a Spectrum marker and my ruler.
Then I stamped the tree in Pear Pizzazz ink (stamp is from CTMH) and the present in Cherry Cobbler ink (stamp is from Jolly Bingo Bits from SU!). Both of these images I had to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get them straight....I'm OCD that way. :)
Then, I stamped the sentiment (from Verve) and punched it out with my oval punch and added some rhinestones. DONE!

I also made this...
It's a very, very simple layout. What makes it simple to me is that I didn't use my Cricut machine (I used that with piratically every page I create!), the background paper is all dolled up so no need for extra pieces to cover it up and I only used 2 embellishments! Wow!
Creating this page reminded me of the "good old days" when I didn't have my Cricut and I had to be very, very creative with my brain! ha ha ha Well, I have so many Christmas pictures each year for each album, I can't spend lots of time on those pages or I would never get finished! LOL This was a great way to get a Holiday page done for my current album.

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope to see you play at Twisted Tuesdays! The link is in my right sidebar.

Until next time...

Love the CAS card....I think you're the Queen of CAS! And the page is adorable too - what a great memory to preserve.
