Showcasing Some Christmas in July Projects

In an effort to try to do some "catch up" blogging, so I will be showing of the things we have made over the summer months. 

We had our annual Christmas in July class to get a jump start on our Christmas projects.  The hit of the class was our center step card made to look like a door to Welcome Christmas into your heart (sentiment retired). 
We had previously made the center step card at one of our Funky Folds classes and had the chance to add a Christmas flare to it.  

Stamps:  Bright Hopes (retired) and Heard from the Heart (retired)
Paper:  Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Ink:  Real Red, Always Artichoke
Extras:  Snowburst Impressions Folder, Cobbler Dazzling Details, brad (for doorknob), Real Red 1/8" taffeta ribbon, sponges, Frost White Shimmer Paint, 1-3/4" scallop circle punch, and 1" circle punch, snail, dimensionals, glue dots
Using the Beautiful Season Christmas set, we created another beauty with the Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder to really make this one pop.  

Stamps:  Beautiful Season, Petite Pairs

Using the globe image from the The Open Sea set, we created a simple Christmas card expressing Peace on Earth.

Paper: Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, and Cherry Cobbler 
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke
Extras: Cherry Cobbler marker, Spritzer, Cherry Cobbler Scallop Dots Ribbon, snail, dimensionals
And last we made one of the cards I had been wanting to make for a while.  This was in last years catalog and I kept saying I was going to make it - SO - we FINALLY made it!   And everyone really liked it.

Stamps: Bells & Boughs, Four the Holidays (retired)
Paper: Cherry Cobbler and VeryVanilla
