August card swap

Wow where did the month of July go?  It just seemed to fly right by.  Well onto the August card swap.  This month I sent out a little something different then a card.  I tried my hand at making them each a layout.
Here is what I sent to Millie.
 Millie has a little kitty named peanut so I thought I would make her a cat layout.  I used pattern papers I got from a Piggy tales warehouse box sale.  I am a sucker for those warehouse box sales.  You can get some neat stuff in them for a great price.  The photo mat in the middle is for a 4"x6" picture.  The Cricut lite cart used was Four Legged Friends. 
The word meow and the yarn ball were cut at 1.5"
The 2 cats were cut at 3"
The little paw prints in the circles were cut at 1"
The heart with the paw print inside was cut at 2.5"
 This card was made using a Penny Black stamp that Kim gave me.  It is called winter fairy.  I just love this stamp.  I made a 5"x7" card with it.  It is a pretty big stamp.  I colored her using Spectrum Noir markers.  I added some stickles to the wings and snowball but it is hard to see in this picture.
Millie loves snowmen.  I picked this little guy up for her.  She really liked it.  She loves all and any kind of snowmen.
I sent Millie and Kim each one of these BoBunny stamps to get them ready and geared up for this coming fall.  Which is coming up fast.  Too fast!
Ok next on to what I sent Kim.
 I did a little boy layout for Kim.  She has 2 nephews she adores.  The picture mat is 4"x6".  I used 2 Cricut carts to make this one.  Nate's ABCs & Create a Critter.
Nate's ABCs is the little boy holding the jar with the bug in it cut at 3.5"
Create a Critter cart cuts:
Sun 3"
Monkey 2.5"
Turtle 1.5"
Bee 2.5"
Clouds 2" & 2.5"
Grass patches 1.5"
The word Cute 2.5"
The vine going down the picture mat is 2 vines welded together.  I used the Cricut cut room to make it.  I forgot to write down what I cut it at though.  Sorry about that.
 I made Kim a card similar to Millie's.  I just used softer colors on Kim's.  No particular reason just wanted to color them different.  It was a fun stamp to color.
For Kim I got her a Sizzix bigz die also.  I got her the stocking.  These dies are awesome because each one comes with a embossing folder.  I also got myself the snowman & stocking.  I can't wait to try them out.  They should make Christmas cards a snap.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and as always Happy Crafting!
