"Your a mean one...Mr Grinch "



Just because there's not snow on the ground, doesn't mean Christmas can't be celebrated a few months early! Happy Christmas in July, everyone, and welcome to Red Carpet Studio's Christmas in July blog hop!











If you're unfamiliar with Red Carpet Studio, we're a challenge blog that challenges crafters to create projects inspired by movies! Right now we offer alternating weekly card and layout challenges, but starting in September we'll be opening up our challenges to any types of projects that fit our theme, as well as extending the duration of the challenges to biweekly to give you awesome crafters more time to create and play along! We're also having a design team call!




 I have to tell you that I absolutely love "The Grinch that Stole Christmas" movie. It is one of the top 3 Christmas movies that I love to watch hehe.

With that being said, I decided to get a jump start on some of the ornaments that I am making this year. Last year I made some for my mom and she loved them. My parents are deaf so I made her some with the "I Love You"  sign on one side with the wording I Love You on the other and they turned out great! So now I am hooked on making these things.... by the way she has already informed me that I have to make her some more LOL :)

My Grinch ornament....

 
Here is a close up:)
 

 
And....my inspiration
 
 
I saw someone make one similar to this last year and I wanted to make one, but never got around to it. Since we were doing a Christmas in July hop, I figured what better time to do it than now:)
I found a picture that I liked and traced the face in my Silhouette then I cut the facial features out in vinyl and applied it to my ornament that I glittered up. I found some cute feathery hair for him at Wal-Mart and added that on top hehe. Now all I have to do is to add the hubs name to the back lol. I tease him all the time and call him the Grinch, when I showed it to him he laughed and said he liked it.
 
Now, onto the goodies!! We have some wonderful sponsors giving away gifts to those who are a follower of Red Carpet Studio (either through Google Reader or Blog Lovin') and comment on EVERY stop of the hop!

5 Digis of Winner's Choice





Winners will be randomly chosen and announced on Tuesday July 23rd along with the winners of our Action Wobble challenge!



I will also be giving away some blog candy! To one lucky follower of my blog that comments and tells me what your top favorite Christmas movie is. I will be giving you a personalized ornament of your own:)
   Due to the high costs of shipping I will have to limit it to participants that live here in the U.S. 
Since, I feel bad about that I will make a personalized cut out for those that live outside the U.S. and mail it to you in a regular sized envelope. So that you can apply it to your own ornament or anything else you want to apply it to.  Just leave me a comment and also add what wonderful country you live in :)

Since, the 26th is my birthday I will choose 1 lucky winner from the U.S and 1 lucky winner from outside the U.S. That way you can get a present too :D
