Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall Blog Hop

Welcome to the "Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!" Blog Hop, hosted by a talented group of ladies from Club CK. If you did not arrive here from Michelle's blog, please go to the beginning of the hop at Virtually Froggy and follow the blog hop in order. By following the blog hop from beginning to end you will collect words to a secret phrase which will make you eligible for the grand prize. The details for grand-prize entry are posted at the start of the blog hop. You won't want to miss it!

This time of year is when I start organizing and planning for Christmas. Yes, I am one of those insane planners, but it makes everything go smoothly once Thanksgiving comes around! I look around for inspiration, figure out what I'm going to do for my Christmas cards, plan crafty gifts for friends/family, and of course figure out party plans and menu ideas! We have a lot of birthdays and events in September and October that I really do have to start early if I want to get everything done on time. With a toddler and a baby to take care of, and almost 100 cards to make, I have to get started early!
I already have my cards planned and a few assembled, so I thought I would show them to you today. My dearest husband bought me a cricut last year for Christmas, so I had to use that for the cards this year. I used the Winter Wonderland cartridge with the sleigh image. I told myself I had to use up all my old Christmas paper before I could buy any more, and I have a lot of paper from an old DCWV stack. Since there are only a few sheets of each design, most of the cards will end up looking a little different with the patterns, but the overall look will be the same. Here are my cards:

I always try to keep my cards simple since I have to make so many. In October I'll plan a family photo to put on the inside of the card. I'm thinking this year we'll wear coordinating red shirts. I hope you enjoyed looking at my project. The next stop on the blog hop is Maribeth.
My secret word is leaf

By the way, I will be giving away a small RAK. All you have to do is become a follower of my blog and write a comment on this post letting me know when you start planning for Christmas. You have until August 29th. Enjoy the rest of your summer!

I'm participating in the ABC crop at My Sketch World. Each day is a new challenge that starts with a letter of the alphabet. Today's challenge is B for Border punches. So I found a sketch with pagemaps and did this layout..

Papers are from Fancy Pants "The Daily Grind" and a couple of random ribbons..

Keep Scrappin!
