Christmas in July


Welcome to the July 2017 Pals Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month we’re having a Pattern Party! Hoppers will feature projects using their favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper and coordinating embellishments. After all, color coordination is a Stampin’ Up! Strength.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

Since I’m getting excited for the Holiday Catalog to come out and it is July (Christmas in July), I decided to make a Christmas card featuring new products.


I love the new Boxwood Wreath Embellishments and through it would be a perfect “o” in Noel. I fussy cut out the letters in Noel; inspired by the sample on Page 121 of the catalog.


I used some of the DSP from the front of the card and card liner on the inside of the card as well to tie everything together.


Papers Used: Be Merry DSP, Garden Green, Whisper White

Inks Used: Garden Green

Stamps Used: Christmas Pines

Other:Boxwood Wreaths Embellishments, Solid Bakers Twine Whisper White

Thank you for stopping by today!


Please take a minute to mark your calendar for our next hop on August 9, 2017 when our projects will feature “cuts” from punches, dies, framelits, edgelits, or thinlits.
