Blog Hop: Christmas in July!

I’m participating in another blog hop with The Crafty Medic, and today we’re celebrating Christmas in July!

The new August to December Mini Catalogue goes live on August 4th, so it’s a perfect time to take a peek at all the wonderful holiday goodness that’s headed our way next month. (And of course, we lucky demonstrators can order from this catalogue already!)

I was so happy to see that the beautiful Christmas Gleaming bundle, along with the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series Paper, is returning this year. This was one of my top picks from last year’s holiday catalogue, and Stampin’ Up! has brought it back for us to enjoy again! The copper foil accents in the Brightly Gleaming paper are absolutely stunning, and it’s so quick and easy to put a card together with the stamp set and co-ordinating punches.

To show off more of this gorgeous paper, I put together a scrappy strips card as well. This big bold Christmas Greetings stamp is now retired, unfortunately, but it’s still a favourite in my craft room! I think the sentiment from Winter Woods stamp set would also look really good here.

Another thing I love about the Brightly Gleaming paper is that you could use it all year round! Here, I’ve used the less-sparkly side of the paper to make a masculine birthday card. Once I started playing with this paper, I couldn’t stop!

I hope you’ll follow the link below to see the other Christmas projects, and get excited about what’s coming in just ten more days!! (But who’s counting!!)

And remember, you have a few more days to get in on Bonus Days. For every $60 you spend in July (before tax and shipping), you’ll earn a $6 coupon to use in August – when you’ll be able to order from the annual catalogue AND the new August-December mini! I’ll be placing an order this coming Monday (July 27), so if you need anything be sure to contact me before then, or shop online and use hostess code H2HUA3ET.
