I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Not Very Merry

It's challenge time at Exploring Cricut and More. This time we are hosting a Blog Hop, and the theme is Christmas in July. I've noticed many projects themed with Christmas in July, so I hope one more isn't too much. Maybe that's why I went with a Not Very Merry theme in my Merry Grinchmas card. Isn't this hilarious. I found this SVG file at PPnB and knew it was the way to go. This was such fun to put together; the only real choices I made were the small Christmas embellishments in the bottom corner.
