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.

You all know that I love making and sending handmade cards. Did you know that at this time of year, something truly magical happens …. and I receive many beautiful handmade cards from friends, teammates, and customers? Today I’m going to show off all the handmade cards I received for Christmas this year.

The two cards above are from Angela (left) and Nita (right). I had to include this thank-you card from Nita, even though it’s not technically a Christmas card, because it uses some of my favourite paper from the holiday catalogue, Feels Like Frost. That paper was SO popular that Stampin’ Up! is bringing it back in next year’s holiday catalogue – so if you missed out, don’t worry! It’s only eight months until it comes available again! 😀

This beautiful Z-fold card is from my friend Arvon, who used Perennial Essence DSP from the annual catalogue, and the Frosted Frames dies from the holiday catalogue. What a great combination of products! The silver foil, glimmer paper, and sparkly embellishments really add sparkle to this special card.

I love the way Betina has created a whole scene with the trees, snowflakes, and Jolly Season dies! What a beauty.

The card on the left is from my friend and teammate Claire, who used Feels Like Frost paper along with the Christmas Gleaming bundle to create this silvery, sparkly card. Her silver embossing is just gorgeous! The card on the right is from Liz, using beautiful gold foil and retired paper to create a stunning shaker card.

My friend and fellow demonstrator Madeleine sent me this adorable card using the Merry Moose bundle! This is another product that Stampin’ Up! have promised to bring back next year. I love the way Madeleine layered all the different elements to create this card!

I received this card from the Random Act of Kindness group I belong to, and have lost the name of who sent it. I love that she has created a picturesque scene using only the Frosted Frames dies and the Feels Like Frost paper – great example of how a card does not have to be complicated to be striking!

On the left, the card from my friend Shellie traveled all the way from the frozen north of the Yukon to brighten my day here in Nanaimo. On the right, teammate Vikki’s shaker card is simply stunning!

Friend and teammate Stephanie used the gorgeous Brightly Gleaming DSP to create the card on the left. (That’s another paper Stampin’ Up! is bringing back next year – hooray!) Friend and fellow demonstrator Heather used the amazing Puff Paint and Peaceful Boughs bundle to create the card on the right. I love them both!

Friend Tricia used the Night Before Christmas Memories and More card pack to create this simple, lovely card.

My friend Trudy is known for creating striking cards, and she certainly delivered with this beautiful card (left). On the right, my friend Dawn has used the Most Wonderful Time medley to create this lovely, peaceful card.

I hope you enjoyed looking through my Christmas Card Gallery! I sure had fun receiving all these beauties – if one of them is from you, thank you so much! I’ve added the shopping list below, as some of these products are still available for a couple more days; the holiday catalogue ends on January 2nd, to make room for the Spring Mini and Sale-a-Bration catalogues which start on January 3rd. Look for a new post that day about my top picks from the Spring Mini catalogue!

Happy New Year, and Happy Stampin’!
