Revisiting Christmas in July Class

We made 2 of each of the 4 designs shown to get our collection of Christmas cards started.  The first one used the Serene Snowflakes set with some Pacific Point Blue ink and designer paper.  Added some bling & ribbon to finish it off.
Next, was our fun card made with the cute gingerbread man from the Got Treats set.  Using the zigzag border from the Tasteful Trim die, some Espresso Baker's Twine and some pearls for the buttons on our gingerbread men to dress them up a bit made this card complete.
One of my favorite Christmas stamp sets is the Come to Bethlehem set.  It looks so rich and elegant when stamped in Soft Suede and added to Cherry Cobbler card stock, layered with Soft Suede card stock using the Petals a Plenty impression folder.  We even added a little surprise inside by adding the impression folder on just the end of the inside vanilla cardstock to dress it up a bit for our sentiment.
The last project was a card using the circle scallop die with the Big Shot to create a folded scallop card making it look somewhat like an ornament.  We used the Delightful Decorations stamp set and some retired Christmas designer paper from last year to finish them off. 
Friday night group working on their cards and having a good time (Missy, Kristine, Lily, Tara, Leslie and Gloribi). 
Door prizes for the the Christmas in July classes - one for Friday night and one for Saturday night class.    A perfect thermal cup for crafting with a lid and straw included filled with various embellishments, etc. Leslie won the Friday night prize.
Susan had been missing from classes for several months due to a hip replacement surgery.  We were excited to have her back to join in the festivities of making some Christmas cards.  Susan has great luck at winning - - she returned and WON the door prize again on her first night back to class.  :o)  Everyone likes to pick at her - but it is truly just LUCK and she definitely has GOOD LUCK on her side - no matter which way we draw for door prizes!  Love ya Susan!  

Hope you enjoyed our fun with Christmas in July.  

Stop back to visit soon.
Happy Stamping!
