Merry Christmas….. in July!
I know……what can I say? I am a little early……. alright maybe 6 months early! But I love all things Christmas; the primary colors, bright lights on a dark night, along with a reason to share homemade cards, gifts and cookies while hanging out in flannel pj’s by the fire!
This was my second annual Christmas in July club that I featured Christmas cards and i think it is a big success…. It is my way of using Christmas stamps from the annual catalogue before the holiday catalogue grabs all my attention.
Fun facts: I hold club classes for 11 months of the year (taking August off) and I enjoy making Christmas cards the most. August is a great month to plan and prepare for the upcoming months club nights including for my Christmas Extravaganza card class, where we make 10 cards in an evening! Christmas in July is like my send off to Christmas! Hope you enjoy my take on a few returning favorites in the annual catalogue along with a new set, Mistletoe Season….I was even inspired to create a youtube video ….. you will have to check it out! Watch my video to learn about my free gift giveaway when you place a $50 order!
It is timely, that the Stampin’ Up holiday catalogue is typically launched during the demonstrators incentive trip in July each year. Along with Christmas, Thanksgiving and Halloween are occasions that are celebrated in the catalogue too! A perk of a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator, is we get a whole month with the catalogue and the new holiday sets to play with and create for all to enjoy!! Once the new stamp sets hit the internet they will take over all our favorites haunts like Pinterest and SplitCoast!
Hope you enjoy the video and my cards! I hope you all having an amazing summer! Enjoy all this season has to offer and we will gather to create your holiday favorites soon enough! Now out to water my roses!
Happy Summer! Bonny
